Here's how big tech companies like Facebook, Google, and TikTok are reacting to Hong Kong's harsh new national security law

Last week, China unilaterally passed an overarching new national security law in Hong Kong that experts say further erodes the semi-autonomous city's waning freedoms. The legislation criminalizes what it deems secession, subversion, terrorism, and collusion with a foreign country. Those charged with the most severe offenses — like undermining the Chinese government — face a maximum penalty of life in prison. On Monday, several major tech companies including Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn,...

Microsoft may get Mortal Kombat and LEGO if it buys WB Games

Rumor has it that Microsoft is one of the parties interested in acquiring WB Games, the game publishing arm of WarnerMedia. If true, it could mean that several very valuable commodities could land squarely in Microsoft‘s lap — and I have to admit, it’s the most promising out of all the potential buyers. Exclusive: Microsoft has expressed interest in acquiring the games division of Warner Bros., the publisher behind popular game franchises based on Batman, Harry Potter and other characters.https:...

Rahul Narang's tech fund has beaten peers for 2 years running by focusing on stocks others won't touch. He breaks down his 3-part approach to finding winners — and shares 4 of his favorite bets right now. (CMTFX, AAPL, AMZN, AVGO, MU, TSM)

Rahul Narang runs one of the best-performing tech funds over the last five years, the Columbia Global Technology Growth Fund.

Former Silicon Valley VC says Ghislaine Maxwell attended an investor party in 2011 despite reports 'about her supplying underage girls for sex'

Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao said Monday that Ghislaine Maxwell attended a 2011 party in Silicon Valley hosted by the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins.

Innovation Inc: The telemedicine push and how the digital era will impact businesses and consumers

The digital era is officially here.

How Have I Been Pwned became the keeper of the internet’s biggest data breaches

When Troy Hunt launched Have I Been Pwned in late 2013, he wanted it to answer a simple question: Have you fallen victim to a data breach? Seven years later, the data-breach notification service processes thousands of requests each day from users who check to see if their data was compromised — or pwned with a hard ‘p’ — by the hundreds of data breaches in its database, including some of the largest breaches in history. As it’s grown, now sitting just below the 10 billion breached-records mark, ...
