Elon Musk called Jeff Bezos a copycat — again — over Amazon's Zoox acquisition. Here are 9 other rivalries that have formed between some of the world's biggest tech CEOs.

While there are many close friendships among tech CEOs in Silicon Valley, there are plenty of feuds, too.  Some appear to be friendly rivalries — like Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff and Oracle CEO Larry Ellison — but others have become more contentious.  Tim Cook and Mark Zuckerberg, for example, have been openly feuding for years, while Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos have made digs at each other over outer space.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

As your small or medium sized business (SMB) moves into the new normal, it’s vital to connect with your customers in an empathetic way.

Facebook Still Can’t Dismiss Sex Trafficking Victims’ Lawsuit in Texas State Court

Sex trafficking victims sued Facebook and Instagram in Texas state court for their alleged roles in the victimization. The victims’ claims are not FOSTA-based, even though the cases were filed after FOSTA became law. In May 2019, the trial court rejected Facebook’s motion to dismiss based on Section 230, in an opinion that will not win any awards for exposition by a judge. The opinion briefly recited various precedent cases on both sides, and then tersely concluded: “In reviewing the statute an...

Billionaire tech mogul Larry Ellison says he and Elon Musk are 'close friends.' Here are 8 other tech exec friendships that have thrived in the competitive world of Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley might be competitive, but it also appears to be a breeding ground for friendships among its famous execs. It makes sense: the tech world is home to some of the richest people in the world, and life can probably get a little lonely at the top.  Elon Musk, for example, is close friends with Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, as well as Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey.  Larry Ellison gave a eulogy at Steve Jobs' funeral, and he also has a love/hate relationship with c...

But the evolution of MailChimp — a notable, bootstrapped outlier out of Atlanta, Georgia, that provides email and other marketing services to small businesses — tells a very different story of tech startup success.
