Just over a year ago LG announced the launch of its Software Upgrade Center -a facility designed to give customers around the world "faster, timelier"operating system and software updates
Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt in a new interview rejected the notion that Capitol Hill has a role to play in regulating big tech companies.
He spent the first decade of his career coaching football, transitioned to advertising, and eventually became a Silicon Valley business legend. Bill Campbell was instrumental in Apple's resurgence and Google's success and he's the subject of the new book 'Trillion Dollar Coach." Authors Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg and Alan Eagle joined The Final Round to disucss.
LONDON (AP) — Google said Thursday it will start giving European Union smartphone users a choice of browsers and search apps on its Android operating system, in changes designed to comply with an EU antitrust ruling.
A skunkworks engineering team at Facebook Inc. has spent the past year building out a voice assistant similar to Amazon.com's Alexa, Apple Inc'’s Siri and Alphabet Inc.'s Google Assistant, the company said Wednesday. “We are working to develop voice and AI assistant technologies that may work across our family of AR/VR products including Portal, Oculus and future products,” Facebook said in a statement to reporters. Facebook's announcement came after CNBC reported the company was in talks with several smart speaker manufacturers about a possible new product.
Google will launch YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Kids on Amazon Fire TV devices in the coming months. Amazon Prime Video will also soon be supported by the Google Chromecast. It ends a streaming spat between the two companies that dates back to 2017, when Google pulled YouTube from Amazon.
If you add up the value of the companies whose leaders Campbell worked with — who also include Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs, Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos — it would total more than $1 trillion.
Google Cloud lags Amazon and Microsoft in market share and customer experience, but new CEO Thomas Kurian, previously a longtime Oracle executive, is trying to change that.
Amazon.com Inc. and Alphabet Inc.'s Google said Thursday the official YouTube app will be launched on Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV smart TVs and Prime Video app "in the coming months," for streaming on Chromecast and Chromecast devices. Prime Video will become available on Android TV, and the YouTube TV and YouTube Kids apps will be available on Fire TV later this year. "We're excited to bring the Prime Video app to Chromecast and Android TV devices, and to give our customers convenient access to the shows and movies they love," said Andrew Bennett, head of worldwide business development for Amazon's Prime Video. Shares of Amazon were down 0.1% in premarket trade and Alphabet inched up 0.1%, while futures for S&P 500 edged up 0.2%.
Users of Android devices will be able to choose their browsers and search engines from five options starting on Thursday, a senior Google executive said, in a move aimed at addressing EU antitrust concerns and staving off fresh sanctions. Hit with a record 4.34 billion euro fine last year for using the market power of its mobile software to block rivals in areas such as internet browsing, Alphabet unit Google was also ordered to come up with a proposal to give its rivals a fair chance. The European Commission said Google had an unfair advantage by pre-installing its Chrome browser and Google search app on Android smartphones and notebooks.
Starting Thursday and following a software update, users in the EU opening Google’s mobile app store will be presented with a choice of alternatives to Google search and Chrome. The Alphabet Inc. unit said options will vary by market, but Microsoft Corp.’s Bing and Norway’s Opera are notable competitors in the European search and browser market respectively.
Google parent Alphabet is breaking out. Even though Google stock is trading in buy range, the relative strength line is very telling.
