SHANGHAI (AP) — Missed paying dues on your Communist Party membership? There's a bank for that - and it's fully automated.
When Mr. Hackett took the post in May, he sought to jump-start Ford’s response to a rapidly changing business in which auto makers are increasingly focusing on electric cars and autonomous vehicles. Mr. Hackett is running a company with an operating margin below that of both General Motors Co. and the smaller Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV in the fourth quarter.
Recent controversy over Facebook’s hunger for personal data has surfaced the notion that the online advertising industry could be hazardous to our privacy and well-being. As justifiable as the focus on Facebook has been, though, it isn’t the full picture. If the concern is that companies might be collecting some personal data without our knowledge or explicit consent, Alphabet’s Google is a far bigger threat by many measures: the volume of information it gathers, the reach of its tracking and the time people spend on its sites and apps.
With trade tensions escalating between the United States and China, fears are growing that American technology companies could be hit in the next round of tit for tat moves between the world's two biggest economies. After threatening to impose tariffs on $150 billion worth of imports from China to punish what it sees as unfair trade practices, the U.S. opened another front in this simmering battle by going after China’s rapidly developing tech sector. To cut off its access to U.S. technology, the U.S.Department of Commerce last week banned Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE from purchasing American products for seven years, citing violations of a sanction settlement reached last year.

Apple has big plans for its new iPhones in 2018. Speaking to “many iPhone casemakers” at the massive Global Sources Mobile Electronics 2018 show in Hong Kong, Macotakara reports there is a wide consensus based on their supply chain sources that the iPhone SE2 will simply be an iPhone SE with an A10 Fusion chip from the iPhone 7 and… yes, the 3.5mm headphone jack removed. In fact, Macotakara even says existing iPhone SE cases are expected to fit the iPhone SE2 as it will have “the same main body size” (and therefore a 4-inch 750p display).
As Facebook Inc. (FB) has come under fire for its handling of data-privacy issues and political-advertising scandals, Twitter Inc. (TWTR) stock has thrived. Shares are up 31% this year, while Facebook has declined 5.7%. The love for Twitter mainly stems from a series of product improvements that investors believe are getting users to spend more time on the platform, as well as the idea that Twitter can benefit from changes Facebook is making to its news-feed algorithm.
Amid the ongoing fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal involving improperly handled Facebook Inc. member data, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg has said on several occasions that the company hasn’t seen a business impact. When Facebook reports first-quarter earnings Wednesday, Zuckerberg will have to prove it for the first time. News of the Cambridge Analytica data usage broke in mid-March, which means any impact would be limited to about 20% of the reporting period — a significant amount of time but, as Zuckerberg has said, likely not enough to dramatically affect the financial results.
Can the major indexes reclaim key support? Can Apple hold its 200-day? Will the 10-year Treasury yield top 3%? And is Twitter a better stock than Facebook or Google-parent Alphabet?
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has tried hard to force Alphabet Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. to disclose more information about their fast-growing businesses, but the tech giants aren’t playing along. The SEC is apparently as curious as MarketWatch is about Google’s YouTube revenue, Amazon’s allocation of R&D spending and a few other matters related to the vast amounts of money coming and going from Big Tech’s corporate giants.
Cloud software has been a hot sector for initial public offerings, but now we will see how Wall Street feels about cloud software used to make more cloud software. Pivotal Software Inc. (PVTL) announced early Friday that it would sell at least 37 million shares in its IPO at a price of $15, the midpoint of the expected price range of $14 to $16.

There’s no Game of Thrones in 2018, so we’ll just have to make ourselves content with Westworld, which you could argue might even be the better show these days. Tonight is the season 2 premiere after Westworld took all of 2017 off, and it promises to be even crazier than the first season. What Host Was Robert Ford Creating?
The Department of Justice opened another front in its scrutiny of the U.S. telecom industry, signaling it’s set on maintaining a deeply competitive environment in a market where four major carriers are jostling for new subscribers. Antitrust officials are investigating whether AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. colluded to make it tougher for consumers to change wireless carriers, people familiar with the matter said last week. Apple Inc., a pioneer in the so-called eSIM technology that makes switching easier, was among those to have complained about the practices, the people said.
Retirement looked pretty good until GE shares collapsed. For decades, the company has had a program that encourages employees to buy GE shares by offering to match 50% of worker contributions, which were taken directly from paychecks.
Bureaucracy stifles ideas, driving away the best creative talent. Scale, and the layers of account people required to manage it, is often the enemy of creativity.
CEO Jeff Bezos says Amazon rests on the three pillars of Amazon Prime, Amazon Web Services, and Marketplace, and the company’s acquisition strategy is designed to support each. Nearly 40 of Amazon’s 2017 patents were focused on developing its cloud computing systems, while the company also filed over 30 patents focused on improving its logistics network. Acquiring Whole Foods for $13.7B last year shows acquisitions are evaluated on the potential Amazon has to scale up transactions and scale down prices drastically.
Facebook now reaches 2.2 billion people on the planet. The most lucrative of those are in the US, where its user base is stagnating. To grow, the social media giant will have to expand in less developed parts of the world. Places like Sri Lanka. An investigation by the New York Times (paywall) exposes the…
