How DC Universe's 'Doom Patrol' brought its bizarre superhero team from the comics to TV

DC Universe's "Doom Patrol" showrunner Jeremy Carver talked to Business Insider about bringing the weirdness of the comic book to the screen. " There was that element of weirdness and absurdity, but I was really taken by the pathos and heart beneath it all," Carver said. He added that the show had to have "equal or more weight" on the characters and their backstories as on the bizarre nature of the show. To say that DC's Doom Patrol is an unconventional superhero team is an understatement....

Goldman Sachs doesn't think Apple can compete with Samsung's new foldable phone

If foldable smartphones become popular following Samsung's Galaxy Fold launch, Apple may struggle to keep up with Samsung, according to a new analyst note from Goldman Sachs. But the fact that Samsung has not allowed anyone to examine or use the Galaxy Fold could mean it's not ready yet. Apple relies on Samsung to produce the displays for its high-end iPhones. Apple and Samsung may offer similar features when it comes to their flagship smartphones — both the latest  iPhones and Galaxy phones ...

These four charts show why Apple's China troubles aren't going away anytime soon (AAPL)

Apple's problems in China are likely to linger, HSBC's Erwan Rambourg said in a new research note. Wealthy Chinese are starting to shift their brand preferences to Huawei from Apple, Rambourg said, citing a proprietary survey. They also don't want to spend what Apple charges for its latest phones, according to the survey. And many want their next phone to support 5G, but Apple isn't expected to offer an iPhone compatible with the new wireless standard until late next year. Don't expect Apple'...

The Samsung Galaxy S10 is one of the few major smartphones you can still buy with a headphone jack

Samsung's Galaxy S10 includes a standard headphone jack, which has become increasingly rare in today's smartphone landscape.

Most smartphone makers instead require users to connect wired headphones via a dongle.  Apple may be convinced that the future is wireless, but for Samsung the headphone jack is still as relevant as ever. The company revealed its Galaxy S10 lineup on Wednesday, whi...

Open source startup Redis Labs raises $60 million and starts planning for an IPO, as it takes a stand against Amazon Web Services (AMZN)

On Tuesday, Redis Labs announced it closed $60 million in Series E financing.  Last year, Redis Labs changed its license in response to Amazon taking Redis Labs' database software and selling it on its cloud — a move that proved controversial among open source developers.

A short trip to India showed me just how badly Apple is screwing up in the world's biggest democracy

Apple has failed to crack the Indian smartphone market, languishing behind Chinese brands with less than a 2% share of the market. During a family visit to India, I noticed Apple doesn't have much retail or advertising presence and that it mostly advertises the "cheaper" iPhone XR. The iPhone XR is still too expensive for most Indians, and iPhones overall cost more to buy in India than in other countries. CEO Tim Cook seems to be trying to replicate Apple's Chinese strategy in India, which has...

Amazon's HQ2 decision is caught in a political firestorm, its CEO is tabloid fodder, its guidance was weak — and its stock hasn't budged. Here's why. (AMZN)

Despite a maelstrom of events surrounding Amazon in recent weeks, its stock's reaction has been relatively muted. In interviews with Markets Insider, analysts attributed the stock's lack of action to investors choosing to ignore what they see as "noise," and focusing on the company's fundamentals.  Follow Amazon's stock here on Markets Insider. If an Amazon shareholder had fallen into a deep sleep for the last month or so and woke up this week, they might check on their investment and figure...

Amazon is pushing video search ads to win over big brands skeptical about the platform, but agencies say there are problems with the pitch

The e-commerce giant Amazon quietly rolled out video ads in search results six months ago and has been shopping it to performance and brand marketers with a minimum spending requirement of $35,000 to $50,000. The format is sold direct and on Amazon's iPhone app, but Amazon is close to expanding it to its self-serve platform and its Android app, according to agencies. The format is geared toward getting brands to spend more with Amazon, but agencies say it's unclear which kind of advertiser the...

Why Oscars ads are selling at a record high despite the steady decline of ratings

Academy Award ratings have been slipping for years, but ad buy prices are on the rise. ABC is selling 30-second ads for the 2019 Oscars at a record-high $3 million. CNN media critic Brian Lowry explains to Business Insider why ABC is still bullish on the Oscars.   It's one of the great mysteries going on with television right now: advertisers are dishing out more money than ever before to get ads on shows that fewer people are watching than ever before.
