Twitter (TWTR) users could sooner or later be able to exchange encrypted direct messages on the platform, according to media reports citing clues in Twitter’s Android application code. Android, a Google (GOOGL) product, is the world’s most popular mobile operating system. In April, 75.7% of smartphones worldwide were running Android compared to 19.2% running Apple’s iOS and less than 1.0% running Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows.
In Escalation Protocol, Bungie and Vicarious Visions have created a potentially great event that they don’t seem to understand at all. While I hoped that “This Week At Bungie” yesterday would shed some light on upcoming fixes to Escalation Protocol, it appears Bungie is sticking to its guns. “Escalation Protocol was designed to be a high-difficulty endgame activity for a max-level, three-player fireteam,” said lead designer Jacob Benton.
A couple of weeks ago, I pointed out three compelling Artificial Intelligence (AI) stocks you may not have even known about. There are certainly more than three such artificial intelligence prospects though. Most investors fully understand that Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) makes the hardware that powers most AI applications while International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM) is arguably doing the most to put artificial intelligence to practical use.
Alphabet's (GOOGL) unit Google bolsters its footprint in payment market with the latest updates on its payment services by strengthening relationship with PayPal.
Loot boxes are out. The biggest hits of this year, God of War, Monster Hunter, Fortnite, don’t have them. It was not the first game ever to have loot boxes, but it’s hard to argue that it wasn’t the one to help make the concept mainstream.
Satya Nadella, chief executive of Microsoft, seems like the type of CEO who would practice meditation religiously. In interviews and public appearances, he projects a calm, thoughtful vibe, is forever espousing the benefits of empathy and compassion, and often cautions people against the hazards of a “fixed mindset.” But in a recent podcast, we learned…
Madrona's seventh fund will back more than 30 startups raising Series A rounds and about 10 seeking seed funding.
The MeToo movement has cast a cloud over corporate America’s penchant for secrecy on sexual harassment complaints. Tech titans Microsoft Corp. and Uber Technologies Inc., and white-shoe law firms including Munger, Tolles & Olson and Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, have done away with contract clauses that forced employees to air their complaints in closed-door arbitration rather than in public. 1. Why are companies renouncing arbitration?
fortunes are much less tied to those of PC makers than they once were, suppliers of chips and hardware components used within data center gear need to worry much less than they once did about the quarterly sales of major enterprise server, storage and networking hardware vendors. This has much to do with the heavy-spending of cloud giants that often aren't keen about buying from traditional enterprise hardware vendors, but do still have quite the need for the chips, adapters, accelerator cards and controller cards made by their suppliers. It also has a bit to do with how industry trends are allowing some chipmakers to grow their enterprise revenue even as broader hardware spending is pressured.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) finds itself at a crossroads. Hardware sales have slowed down, and new products have failed to match the sales numbers of the iPhone. Given the coming arrival of 5G, investors should look well beyond the near arrival of the $1-trillion market cap.
A group of iPhone users sued Alphabet’s (GOOGL) Google in the United Kingdom on claims that the company had improperly collected their personal information. The group has indicated that it could seek over $1,000 in damages for each individual affected if its case against Google is successful, according to Bloomberg. The group includes 4.4 million people, which suggests that Google could face as much as a $4.3 billion claim in the privacy case.
Is Alphabet’s (GOOGL) Google back to waging a price war on its cloud-computing rivals? Google recently revamped its consumer cloud storage plans, with changes including rebranding, lowering prices, and releasing brand new plans at competitive prices. The company renamed its paid consumer storage service Google One. Its free storage service will continue to be called Google Drive.
Alphabet’s (GOOGL) Google is eating into Amazon’s (AMZN) share of the smart speaker market, according to a new report. Amazon made an early entrance into the smart speaker business, allowing it to capture the lion’s share of the global smart speaker market at a time when its competitors were still trying to figure out how to venture into the business of building speakers capable of taking and acting on voice instruction.
"I can directly trace the founding of Microsoft back to my earliest days here," Bill Gates said in a speech at Lakeside School.
The Czars are Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL), and Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB). Between them, the Czars were worth $3.68 trillion as the stock market opened May 23. The total market cap of the Dow Jones Industrials at the end of 2017 was $6.87 trillion.
Instead some are flocking toward names with mitigated data exposure like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). The bull case on Microsoft stock as a safe-haven in a privacy-concerned world is pretty straightforward. Microsoft has become a $750 billion company largely without monetizing data.
News about Baidu Inc (ADR) (NASDAQ:BIDU) has brought a new round of volatility. The Chinese-language internet search king saw its stock fall on news of the resignation of COO Qi Lu. While that change creates a degree of uncertainty, it also becomes a speed bump for Baidu stock.
Alphabet Inc’s (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google has proven a thorn in the side of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) in the education market. Google Chromebooks have taken a huge chunk of that market, thanks to their low cost, easy maintenance and Google’s G-Suite productivity software. Now the company is targeting the business market, and new Acer Chromebooks coming today will mark the start of that push to displace Windows and Office in MSFT’s core market.
The best change they’ve ever made is that you can now dismantle things directly from your vault and postmaster, meaning you no longer have to do the awkward dance of shuffling things around in order to scrap them. With the arrival of Warmind, Bungie added 100 new slots to your vault, which is a nice stopgap, but all it really does is make things catch up to closer to where they need to be.
The first was that the “PS4 is entering the final phase of its lifecycle,” according to Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO John Kodera. The PlayStation 4 debuted in 2013, so that would make for a 7-8 year lifespan for the product, relatively standard in this day and age. Personally, I don’t care whether the PlayStation 5 is one, two or three years away.
