When it comes to corporate slogans, Google’s “Don’t be evil” has always been refreshingly clear. The three simple words mesh an irreverent tone with a sense of morality and justice—regardless of whether the company actually lived up to it. Yet the search giant is minimizing “Don’t be evil,” at least in its official code of…
A “60 Minutes” segment devoted to assertions that Alphabet Inc.’s Google wields a destructive monopoly in online search hammered home the notion of the company’s dominance during a time of heightened public concern with technology giants, while not surfacing new allegations. The segment on the CBS television program highlighted how critics and rivals, such as Yelp Inc., are trying to bring Europe’s antitrust approach to Google to the U.S. Margrathe Vestager, the European Union competition commissioner, told CBS that she is intent on stopping Google’s "illegal behavior" in search, suggesting that the regulator isn’t appeased with the company’s proposed solution for the hefty charges the EU filed last year. The episode featured guests who argued Google abuses its dominance in search and search advertising.

and its Google search business are playing scapegoat this weekend. The tech giant is expected to be the focus of a 60 Minutes segment on Sunday, May 20, titled "The Power of Google." The segment will focus on "critics who say the company has stifled competition, and an antitrust enforcer who is taking action." Google shares finished down 1% on Friday on news of the segment. It's not the first time Google has come under fire for allegedly squashing competition or raising the barriers to entry too much.
Duolingo has pulled off a remarkable feat. The startup, valued at $700 million, has built one of the world’s most popular language learning apps while only hiring a handful of translators. Each day, the startup serves up millions of sentences, almost all of them created by its 300 or so volunteers. The seven-year-old company achieved…

Google is unveiling a new music subscription service on Tuesday, and will promote it with YouTube’s most expensive advertising campaign.
The multi-day program offers a multi-day machine-learning crash course adapted from Google's own internal training program. A group of about 30 engineers sipped coffee and tapped out notes on their laptops, while a charismatic Google employee named Michael "Mig" Gerard whipped through a presentation on how to best apply machine learning, a hot sub-field of A.I. in which software programs get "smarter" at solving problems over time as they receive more data. The audience of fellow engineers laughed along with him, but they weren't who you might expect.
Pokémon GO Community Day is back, and while I don’t want to overhype it, this is probably the best one the game has had to date. The featured Pokémon is Charmander, and in addition to learning Blast Burn when Charmeleon evolves into Charizard today, a 110 damage, two bar fire move, the starter Pokémon is also available as a shiny. While most shinies may have barely noticeable color palate shifts, as you can see above, shiny Charizard is straight up black and red, the most badass color scheme you can put on a flying fire dragon.
The world is about to be painted with data. In the near term this invisible digital layer will be revealed by the camera in your phone, but in the long term it will be incorporated into a wearable device, likely a head-mounted display (HMD) integrating phone, audio, and AI assistants. Thanks to AR, we can start building the world's digital layer for the smartphone, right now, without waiting for HMDs to unlock the benefits of an AR-enabled world. Follow the Fox on Google walking maps.
new smart speaker is off to a slow start, but don't count out Apple just yet. Google Home claimed about 44% and 27%, respectively. Apple only released its speaker in February of this year, making the company "late to the game," DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte said.
new YouTube Premium service has a pretty strong sales pitch. YouTube Premium, which was unveiled on Wednesday, provides (like the YouTube Red service that it replaces) ad-free YouTube and access to original YouTube shows such as the popular Cobra Kai.
After years designing gadgets and services to monopolize our attention and extract our data, tech giants face a mounting backlash. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, long under fire for “programming people’s brains,” will testify before the European parliament next week about his company’s use of data. Not long after, transformative new European privacy rules go into…
If there is one thing that unites Silicon Valley billionaires, it is their hatred of traffic. Most are betting on autonomous cars, in one form or another. Both Google founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, have their own private aerospace ventures.
YouTube is hiring music experts across the world to make its revamped music streaming subscription more locally "authentic," officials at YouTube, a unit of Alphabet Inc's Google, told Reuters on Friday. Music programmers in countries such as France and Brazil are among the top investments YouTube says it is making to address issues that have left Google a distant rival to Spotify Technology SA and Apple Inc in online music subscriptions globally.
Alphabet Inc.’s Google has agreed to meet with a group of publishers next week at four of its global offices to discuss their concerns about its preparations for Europe’s forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation, according to people familiar with the matter. Some publishers have been critical of Google’s stance on the sweeping new data-protection law and worry the tech giant’s moves might further consolidate its position as the dominant digital advertising player. Google has told publishers using its advertising-technology tools they will need to obtain user consent on its behalf to gather personal information on European users to target ads at them.
A peek inside ZTE Corp.’s flagship smartphone reveals how badly the Chinese telecom giant needs a deal to lift a U.S. ban on shipments of phone parts to the company. Other key components come from SanDisk Inc., a flash-memory supplier based in Milpitas, Calif., and Skyworks Solutions Inc., a Woburn, Mass., chip maker, ABI said. The U.S. penalized ZTE for its violation of a 2017 settlement resolving a probe into its evasion of American sanctions on Iran.
The disputes are getting fresh attention after it was learned that CBS's newsmagazine 60 Minutes will air a segment on Sunday about Google's perceived anticompetitive behavior -- a segment that will include remarks from European Commission (EC) chief Margrethe Vestager. In 2016, the EC charged Google with abusing the dominant market positions of Google Search and Android in several ways. The Android portion of the dispute could hurt Google by giving smartphone makers leverage to demand higher ad revenue-sharing payments in exchange for making Google the default search engine on their phones.
Facebook Inc. is constantly expanding in its Silicon Valley hometown of Menlo Park, California. The social media giant reached a deal Friday to take all the office space at the newly constructed Park Tower at Transbay, according the asset management arm of MetLife Inc., one of the building’s developers. “We look forward to joining the San Francisco community as we gradually grow into MetLife Investment Management’s Park Tower,” John Tenanes, Facebook’s vice president of global facilities and real estate said in an emailed statement.
HANOI/SINGAPORE May 18 (Reuters) - A struggle over internet laws in Vietnam is pitting a government keen on maintaining tight control against U.S. technology companies trying to fight off onerous new rules - with the country's online dissidents among the biggest losers. Facebook, Google and other global companies are pushing back hard against provisions that would require them to store data on Vietnamese users locally and open offices in the country.
After a heated week of litigation battles, CBS on Thursday proceeded with a board meeting it had scheduled to vote on whether to dilute the voting power of National Amusements Inc., a company controlled by Shari Redstone. This came after a court decision that said CBS could not prevent Redstone from changing CBS's bylaws to prevent that from occurring. All of which means CBS directors and Redstone will be back in court soon to fight over voting control, with Redstone pushing to combine CBS with Viacom, unless of course, both sides instead consider the option to auction the media company.
