Former Facebook exec thinks big tech will get broken up “over the next 10 years”

Investor Chamath Palihapitiya made part of his fortune at Facebook, where he was a vice president for more than four years, leaving roughly one year before the company’s 2012 IPO. Though he has voiced concerns numerous times since about his former employer, he also believes it has played an active role in enabling users to report and disseminate important information. For example, he suggests it was smart phones and social media that has made so many Americans aware of the George Floyd tragedy a...

EU commissioner calls for tighter regulation of American Big Tech

Europe’s dependence on American Big Tech during the COVID-19 crisis has been a “wake up call” and the fact that these companies were strengthened by the pandemic makes it more urgent to ensure that everyone “plays according to the same rules in digital markets”, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission and its Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an interview with the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag. She added that she did not begrudge companies their success, but want...

New cinematic take on most famous U.S. tax cheat

This U.S. Department of Justice mug shot of Al Capone was taken four months before his tax eviction conviction on Oct. 17, 1931. It's 89 years, later and Scarface still gets our attention, most recently in a movie about his later days. If there's one tiny sliver of silver lining in coronavirus self-isolation, it's that I feel a bit better about shelling out money for added television features. During our stay-home time, the hubby and I are taking advantage of premium cable, as well as the m...

the reality of missing out

When Tim Berners-Lee invented the Worldwide Web he made it free and open source, so others could build upon it. In the early days it was quite open with individuals sharing knowledge through blogging and collectively building knowledge with wikis, the largest being Wikipedia. But as more people joined the web two things happened. Commercial forces found ways to monetize their audiences. They built attractive ways for people to get online as easily as possible. They even hired psychologists and a...

Tesla will likely roll out a monthly subscription plan for customers who aren't yet ready to drop $7,000 upfront for its self-driving technology (TSLA)

Tesla plans to offer its self-driving technology as a subscription service "probably towards the end of this year," CEO Elon Musk told investors during the company's quarterly earnings call on Wednesday. Tesla's "Full Self-Driving" feature, which helps the vehicle navigate highways and park on its own, is available for $7,000 for customers who purchase it upfront. CFO Zach Kirkhorn said buying the feature upfront will still be "the least expensive plan," but a subscription option would let cus...

These 11 tech companies could be the most at risk if Trump hinders immigration into the US by foreign workers

The Trump administration hinted this week that it may clamp down on temporary work visas for foreign employees, a move that would thwart their career plans and also narrow a significant hiring pipeline for Silicon Valley tech companies.  Trump kept that option on the table as he imposed a 60-day suspension on the entry of immigrants seeking permanent US resident status, rather than the guest worker visas sought by many tech workers from abroad. "Companies need to start thinking about the impac...

Weapons of Mess and Disruption?

Perhaps it is at least in part the fault of the idiot wing of the fund management business, that it seems to have become necessary for every aspiring new entity seeking to serve the legal and professional information sector to classify itself as a “disruptor” or “disruptive”. Whether or not such entities, their products and services are capable of achieving the criteria set by the fundamentalist religious cult enthusiast attributed with having identified the concept, nonetheless, to attract the ...

Underground Radio Remastered

Given the shelter-at-home quarantine we've all been faced with, I finally got around to remastering my rock opera Underground Radio. Mastering is distinct from mixing and is a separate phase of production during which a talented audio engineer listens to your album and makes adjustments to the overall sound, as opposed to the individual instruments or vocal tracks. It turns out that at least some of the mastering process can be automated through the use of artificial intelligence. So I used...
