Andreessen Horowitz-backed startup PagerDuty has confidentially filed for an IPO but because of the shutdown no one can review its prospectus

PagerDuty, an IT incident response startup, has reportedly filed confidentially for an IPO. PagerDuty was last valued at $1.3 billion in funding round backed by Silicon Valley VCs like Andreessen Horowitz and Accel. Despite filing the paperwork, PagerDuty isn't likely to get comments from the SEC anytime soon since the Securities and Exchange Commission is closed with the rest of the federal government. The hot developer-focused startup PagerDuty has confidentially filed for an IPO, Bloomberg...

Instagram caught selling ads to follower-buying services it banned

Instagram has been earning money from businesses flooding its social network with spam notifications. Instagram hypocritically continues to sell ad space to services that charge clients for fake followers or that automatically follow/unfollow other people to get them to follow the client back. This is despite Instagram reiterating a ban on these businesses in November and threatening the accounts of people who employ them. A TechCrunch investigation initially found 17 services selling fake fo...

Apple's $24 million chip executive is reportedly on Intel's short list for new CEO, but it's not clear if he'd be willing to make that jump (INTC)

It's been six months and Intel still hasn't found a new CEO. Intel has reportedly put Apple senior VP of hardware technologies, Johny Srouji, on its wish list. If Intel could convince Srouji to become its new CEO, it would be a big win for the company. But that's a big if. If there's one sure-fire way for Intel to turn the fiasco of its six-month vacant CEO slot into a big win for the company, it's this: lure Apple senior vice president of hardware technologies, Johny Srouji, into becoming th...

The number of Americans over the age of 60 will double by 2060 — from 46 million today to 98 million — according to a 2016 report. Scientists said people are living much longer than ever before, too.

Goodbye old friend: Microsoft to end support for Windows 7 in one year

It’s not surprising to see PC users running an old version of Windows. Whether they refuse to switch to Windows 10’s service model or their IT department is lazy, it’s still pretty common to see PC’s running Windows 7. It might be a good time to move on now. Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or free support for Windows 7 one year from today. Windows 7 was a huge success for Microsoft. Windows tends to come in good-bad cycles, and after the much-reviled Vista, its successor arrive...

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has two very specific examples of what's next when it comes to business software. Specifically, he sees two new categories of software emerging. One new category will track the performance of products as customers use them. It is business software built on the concept of Internet of Things, where objects get sensors and apps. The second adds a layer of artificial intelligence magic on top of it all, which will predict stuff about to happen (like something braking) a...

The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and the Death of Competition. Jonathan Tepper and Denise Hearn. A review...

The Myth of Capitalism is a polemic about the reduction in competition in many industries in the US. And it starts in an entirely appropriate place. Dr Dao - a doctor with patients to serve the next day - was "selected" by United Airlines to be removed from an overbooked plane. As he had patients to tend the next day he did not think he should leave the plane. So the airline sent thugs to bash him up and forcibly removed him. The video (truly sickening) went viral. But the airline did ...

Will Jeff Bezos Get Half of MacKenzie Bezos’s Fortune in the Divorce?

How much do you think Jeff Bezos will get in the divorce? I haven’t heard anyone ask that. I’ve only read headlines like How Much Could MacKenzie Bezos Get? and How Much Will Jeff Bezos Lose? In the Bezos marriage, the partners are equals. Jeff and MacKenzie started the company together. And they worked side by side. When the company was big and they had four kids, MacKenzie took half the load (kids) and Jeff took half the load (work). Why do people assume Jeff will be doling out money to Mac...

I went to the biggest tech show in the world after not going for the past 7 years — and I was surprised by how little had changed

I went to CES, the biggest tech show in the world, for the first time since 2012. To be honest, not much has changed since the last time I went seven years ago. LAS VEGAS — Thousands of people flock to Nevada in the first weeks of January for the biggest annual tech show in the world — and this year, I was one of them. I hadn't been back to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) — or Las Vegas, for that matter — since 2012, which was the last time I had been sent on assignment to cover the tech ...
