Interview with George Gilder author 'Life after Google'.
Michael Olson, Piper Jaffray, and Kevin Delaney, Quartz, discuss Alphabet's business segments like Android and search on the 14th anniversary of Google's IPO.
If you're like many smartphone owners using non-stock versions of Android, you're probably twiddling your thumbs waiting for your device maker to release an upgrade to Android 9 Pie. Sony can explain. In a blog post promising Pie updates for recent Xperia phones (the XZ Premium, XZ1 family and XZ2 series) in November, the company also provided an infographic outlining the steps between Google's OS release and seeing the new software on your handset.
One Medical is close to raising $200 million in growth capital, sources say. It is in talks with The Carlyle Group, an investment firm with more than $200 billion in assets. The company is backed by Alphabet's GV, Benchmark and others.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that it is "very dangerous" for social media companies like Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) to silence voices on their services. Trump's comments in an interview with Reuters come as the social media industry faces mounting scrutiny from Congress to police foreign propaganda. Trump has made his Twitter account - with more than 53 million followers - an integral and controversial part of his presidency, using it to promote his agenda, announce policy and attack critics.
The Toronto-based giant-screen cinema company has closed two of its Imax VR Centres and canceled plans to build a VR camera with Google Inc.
Shares of Apple (AAPL) have outperformed the broader market, the tech sector in general, and fellow FAANG components Facebook (FB) and Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL) since the start of the year in its journey to become the first company with a $1 trillion market capitalization. Where we were: Apple has risen 27.3% since the start of the year, nearly double the Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF's (XLK) 14.3% gain, and it's remained popular with smart-money players like hedge funds even when other tech stars have fallen out of favor. Where we're headed: Potentially lower, argues New Street Research, if iPhone sales disappoint next year.
Dow Jones futures: Tesla stock undercut 300 as concerns grow about CEO Elon Musk. PepsiCo will buy SodaStream. U.S.-China trade talks loom, even with new Trump tariffs due. The Nasdaq is lagging even with Apple soaring.
India (INDA) is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and is increasingly moving toward digitalization. According to a McKinsey report, India is pegged to be a $1 trillion digital economy by 2025. Local established players, as well as US tech giants, are thus making efforts to push into the potential digital growth opportunity in India.
Square’s (SQ) peer-to-peer payment service Cash app is now more popular than PayPal’s (PYPL) competing service Venmo, according to data from app research firm Sensor Tower and Wall Street firm Nomura Instinet. Cash app’s accumulative downloads hit 33.5 million at the end of July, surpassing Venmo’s cumulative downloads of 32.9 million, Nomura wrote in a research note cited by CNBC. The Cash app has never racked up more downloads than Venmo, so the data indicate a milestone for Square in its race with PayPal to dominate the peer-to-peer payment market.
U.S. businesses have a message for the Trump administration: New tariffs on $200 billion (£156.42 billion) of Chinese imports will force Americans to pay more for items they use throughout their daily lives, from cradles to first bicycles and wedding dresses to coffins. Six days of public hearings on the proposed duties of up to 25 percent started on Monday in Washington as part of President Donald Trump's and the U.S. Trade Representative's efforts to pressure Beijing for sweeping changes to its trade and economic policies. Unlike previous rounds of U.S. tariffs, which sought to shield consumers by targeting Chinese industrial machinery, electronic components and other intermediate goods, thousands of consumer products could be directly hit with higher tariffs by late September.
A popular slang term among Bitcoin believers is losing steam as the slump in global cryptocurrency prices continues.
Amazon (AMZN) is considering building an insurance comparison website in the United Kingdom (EWU). It’s in talks with European insurers to see if they would contribute products to the creation of a UK price comparison site, according to a Reuters report. Amazon already has an extensive price-comparison service for products on its website, but if it launches its insurance price comparison site in the United Kingdom, it will be a separate offering in a new market.
