In an open letter to Facebook’s leadership posted earlier today, the attorneys general from 20 states called on the company to do more to fight intimidation, discrimination, disinformation, harassment and hate speech on the platform. “Although Facebook has made some progress in counteracting the use of its platform to dehumanize and demean, that is just the beginning of what is necessary,” the attorneys general wrote. “Private parties, organized groups, and public officials continue to use Fa...

Google's latest $350 Pixel 4a makes the idea of spending $1,000 on a smartphone completely ridiculous

  The Pixel 4a is a fantastic little phone that offers an exceptional core smartphone experience, especially at its $350 price tag. Its camera is equally as effective as the Pixel 4 series that starts at $800, and it runs apps and the Android operating system smoothly, with only the rarest and faintest stutter.  This phone doesn't have some of the premium flourishes, like wireless charging, water resistance, a triple-lens camera, or 5G connectivity. But, it gets the core features so right tha...

Thanks to COVID-19, everybody wants Density’s technology tracking building occupancy and use

Before the COVID-19 epidemic, Density was being used by companies like TechCrunch’s parent company, Verizon, to see how it could better use office space after the Yahoo!/Aol merger. Now, thanks to the COVID-19 epidemic everyone wants the company’s technology to track building and room occupancy and use. It’s one reason why the company managed to raise $51 million in a new round of funding led by Kleiner Perkins with participation from previous investors like Dick Costolo’s 01 Advisors and the Lo...

HBO Max Has More Than Four Million Subscribers One Month After Launch, AT&T Says

In the one month since it launched, HBO Max has signed up more than four million customers, according to AT&T. The numbers pale in comparison to the 10 million that Disney+ hit within its first 24 hours (ratcheting up to 50 million in its first six months) and the 33.6 million customers Apple TV+ attracted within its first quarter. Though HBO Max at least has been able to do outdo Quibi, which reportedly wasn’t even able to crack 1 million paying subscribers after its three month free trial. Ho...

AT&T's 5G Network Goes Nationwide With No Extra Cost on Unlimited Plans

Having launched preliminary 5G services using millimeter wave hardware in late 2018, AT&T has technically been operating a 5G network for a year and a half -- but between the "5G+" network's few connection points and extremely limited hardware support, most people in the U.S. couldn't actually use it. Today, AT&T says its low band 5G network is officially available nationwide, reaching a potential 205 million customers across 395 coverage markets.

How Carolyn Everson made Facebook an ad juggernaut, with ski trips, cocktails, and exclusive clubs

Facebook went from a college-networking site into a $70 billion digital-ad machine by cultivating close relationships with top marketers and the agencies that manage their multibillion-dollar budgets.  The company developed its ad business gradually and sold marketers on a cheap product with unprecedented growth and scale. It hired executives away from Google and mimicked its approach by dedicating teams to individual brands and agencies. The 2011 hire of Carolyn Everson and her development of...

Call it a boomlet, if you will, of startups looking to ride the wave of demand that video-conferencing has seen during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Exchange explores startups, markets and money.

In a rare move from Apple, the new iPhone 12 could be cheaper than most other 5G phones (AAPL)

Apple could release a 5G version of the iPhone 12 that costs less than $1,000, says Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives. That's significant because 5G smartphones tend to be more expensive than standard models, with flagship models costing around $1,000. Some smartphone makers like OnePlus, TCL, and Samsung are already beginning to release cheaper 5G smartphones. But a decision by Apple launch a lower-cost 5G iPhone would mark the first high-profile device to debut with 5G at an affordable ...
