Google (GOOGL.O), Facebook (FB.O), Microsoft (MSFT.O) and other tech giants could face more curbs on their market power after a European Parliament committee voted in favour of tougher copyright rules on Wednesday. The copyright rules, proposed by the European Commission two years ago, are designed to take account of the growing role of online platforms, forcing them to share revenues with publishers and bear liability for copyright infringement on the internet. The vote by the Legal Affairs Committee is likely to be the Parliament's official stance as it heads into negotiations with EU countries on a common position, unless dissenting lawmakers force a vote at the general assembly next month.

America's most-admired chief executives are well represented by the tech industry (26 out of 100) but not by women (only eight). Career site Glassdoor's list of the top-100 CEOs, as voted by employees anonymously, is topped by Eric Yuan of Zoom Video Communications. Three other tech CEOs--Daniel Springer of DocuSign (DOCU), Jeff Weiner of Microsoft (MSFT) unit LinkedIn, and Marc Benioff of Salesforce.com (CRM)--landed in the top 10.
Growing fears of unchecked data use have prompted behavioral and policy changes, like Europe's General Data Protection Rule. Rather than resisting data collection, society should double down on it — so long as people are appropriately compensated, technology pioneer Jaron Lanier argued.
A few years ago, virtual reality was being pushed as the next big thing in gaming, and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) was talking up Project Scorpio touting VR as a big part of its Xbox plans. In the aftermath of this year’s E3 gaming conference, MSFT says Xbox VR support is on hold. The news hasn’t moved Microsoft stock yet, but it could.
Microsoft and Nintendo are friends now, and they want the world to know it. The Nintendo Switch gets Minecraft tomorrow, bringing one of the biggest games in the world to the still-new platform, and a big game that happens to be a Microsoft product, to boot. In a just-released crossplay trailer, the two companies highlighted the fact that Switch players and Xbox players can craft together to their heart's content. And in the wake of Sony's recent Fortnite debacle, the message is pretty clear: Xbox and Switch users are hanging out at a party that PlayStation users can't attend.

Back in 2016 when Phil Spencer announced the ultra-powerful Xbox Scorpio, one of the key components was said to be that the console would eventually be able to support high-end VR, a shot at the relatively lower-end PSVR, and a bridge to Microsoft’s VR partner, Oculus.
Stock pickers are outperforming market timers. Most of the business media tends to focus on the DJIA and that leads to downbeat headlines. For example there is mention that the DJIA is now in position for its 8th straight day of losses.

How about becoming co-owner of basketball’s Los Angeles Clippers franchise with his wife four years ago and also trying to figure out one of the trickiest puzzles in philanthropy. Steve and Connie Ballmer are attempting to tackle economic mobility, or how to give low-income, disadvantaged kids a legitimate shot at the American Dream.
See the rest of Fortnite’s Week 8 Challenges, and find out how to complete them. Here's where to search between a bear, crater and fridge shipment.

Earlier this year a Microsoft executive bragged in a blog post that the company’s technology had received official certification from ICE, making it possible for the agency’s staff to do things such as use its facial recognition software to identify people. The clear implication: Microsoft would think twice before helping ICE implement any controversial Trump immigration policies.
Bonsai, whose backers included Y Combinator and Matrix Partners, specializes in building software to help computers run autonomously.
