Apple's stock had risen 436% in the five years preceding that dinner. After everyone gave an answer, the seasoned chip executive confidently predicted Apple's stock would actually be lower in five years' time, not higher. The executive was wrong, however: Apple shares went on to double in the ensuing five years.
An HQ2 fiasco, a multibillion-dollar divorce -- is Amazon's armor starting to show some cracks? Politicians and activists who opposed the facility cheered Amazon's sudden exit as others bemoaned the loss of up to 25,000 jobs and associated tax revenues. "I think they got lucky, in that New York City looks so bad," said Allen Adamson, co-founder of Metaforce and a professor at NYU's Stern School of Business.
Among the select committee’s recommendations was the insistence that the Competition and Markets Authority, Britain’s antitrust authority, conduct a “deep audit of the advertising market on social media.” A governmental review into the sustainability of the news industry made a similar suggestion last week. Britain’s divorce from the European Union could seriously impair its capacity to rein in the giants of U.S. tech. For all the concerns over the flow of fake news, the widespread gathering of data from both users and non-users, the slapdash approach to handling that information and broader concerns about the impact on society, culture and mental health, it’s easy to overlook that everything at Facebook and Google comes down to one thing: programmatic advertising.
Regulators are hitting the likes of Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Facebook Inc. with a flurry of antitrust fines and data-privacy probes, implying that they regard tech billionaires as more John D. Rockefeller than Nikola Tesla. The end-game, according to Brussels’ top data watchdog, is to make sure new startups aren't blown out of the water by Big Tech (or gobbled up), which should ultimately benefit consumers by allowing them more choice. Tackling this so-called “kill zone,” where fledgling tech companies are acquired or copied out of existence by deep-pocketed incumbents, is a prime ambition for European Data Protection Supervisor Giovanni Buttarelli, nicknamed “Mr GDPR” after the data-privacy law.
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — New Zealand's government announced plans on Monday for a new tax targeting online giants like Google and Facebook that earn plenty of money in the country but pay little tax.

Many tech companies pay stock dividends to their shareholders, but the parent company of Google isn't one of them—despite pressure from investors.
After years without a challenge, the company is seeing its graphic processors meet a new wave of competition. That could spell bad news for investors.
Facebook and Google have made big splashy deals, but the largest acquisitions of late have been in the enterprise. GitHub, Red Hat, CA and MuleSoft were all acquired last year. While big internet companies like Facebook FB and Google GOOGL have been fairly quiet of late on the deal-making front, business software vendors have kept bankers quite busy.
