DoorDash, now valued at $12.6B, shoots for the moon

More than five years ago, Sequoia partner Alfred Lin called Tony Xu, the founder of a small on-demand delivery startup called DoorDash, to say he was passing on the company’s seed round.

Today, venture capitalists are valuing the San Francisco-based company at a whopping $12.6 billion with a ...

Zendesk acquires Smooch, doubles down on support via messaging apps like WhatsApp

One of the bigger developments in customer services has been the impact of social media — both as a place to vent frustration or praise (mostly frustration), and — especially over messaging apps — as a place for businesses to connect with their users. Now, customer support specialist Zendesk has made an acquisition so that it can make a bigger move into how it works within social media platforms, and specifically messaging apps: it has acquired Smooch, a startup that describes itself as an “omni...

Trump's blacklist of Huawei has serious implications for Red Hat, Oracle, VMware and other huge US software companies (MSFT, ORCL, VMW, RHT)

US companies caught up in the quagmire of Trump's blacklist on Huawei extends far beyond Google, Intel, Broadcom, and Qualcomm.
