Some think Apple News' subscription service is a bad deal for publishers. Here's why The Wall Street Journal thinks it'll benefit.

The Wall Street Journal is participating in Apple News+, Apple's new all-you-can-read subscription service.

The Journal was the only national newspaper to participate in the bundle, announced March 25, while The New York Times and Washington Post turned it down.

10 Good Reasons Not to Seek Investors For Your Startup

Before you buy into the myths about startup investors, first consider whether you actually want startup investors for your new business at all. No, I’m not bitter … I had VC money in Palo Alto Software for a few years and they were helpful, collaborative, and good people. I’m not a bitter victim.  And I’ve invested in more than a dozen startups, so I don’t hate investors; I am one. But I try to tell the truth. Most businesses are better off without startup investors. Bootstrapping is underrated...

Digital media companies Group Nine Media and Refinery29 are said to be in talks to merge

Both companies are looking to diversify away from advertising, which has been harder to come by as most of the digital ad dollars are going to Google and Facebook. Millennial digital media companies Group Nine and Re...

Through March 15, the Internal Revenue Service reports that it has received almost 76 million 2018 tax year returns. That's 2.5 percent fewer than this point in last year's filing season. In fact, the IRS latest filing season data shows that 9 of 12 tracked areas are still slightly behind last year's pace. Only visits to IRS.gov, tax returns directly e-filed by tax...

Boeing will start including a safety feature that customers previously had to pay for on all 737 Max aircraft (BA)

Boeing will start including a safety feature customers previously had to pay for on all of its 737 Max aircraft, The New York Times reports. The feature, called a disagree light, will alert pilots if two sensors are giving different readings of the angle at which the plane is pointing up or down. Those sensors are part of the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), which points an aircraft's nose downward if the plane is flying at too steep an incline.

I’ve Been Off Instagram in 2019 (and Book Review: Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport)

This past New Year’s day I was sitting in the lounge of the top floor of a very nice hotel in Taipei, looking out over the green hills. I had a lot to be grateful for, on a number of levels. I had been off the grid for the previous 10 days. I opened up my phone and went online for the first time. I opened Instagram and began to scroll through. The first photo was someone posing in a Happy New Year’s photo from a Four Seasons in Hawaii. The next photo was someone at an epic party at a different F...

Apple is pitching its new subscription service as a savior to journalism, but publishers say its logic is flawed

Apple is set to launch a new all-you-can-read news subscription service along with other services at a big event next week. Critics of the plan say while Apple is pitching itself as a savior to the publishing industry with the new service, its logic is flawed. They say Apple is pointing to Apple Music as evidence of its subscription know-how. Big news publishers are said to be sitting it out because Apple’s financial and data-sharing terms are seen as unfavorable to them. Conversely, a publish...
