DuckDuckGo debuts map search results using Apple Maps

DuckDuckGo has a new, unlikely partner in search: Apple. The privacy-focused search engine that promises to never track its users said Tuesday it’s now using data provided by Apple Maps to power its map-based search results. Although DuckDuckGo had provided limited mapping results for a while using data from open-source service OpenStreetMap, it never scaled its features to those of its search engine rivals, notably Google and Bing. Now, DuckDuckGo will return addresses, businesses, geographi...

TSMC's $39 Billion Wipeout Will Only Get Worse, Analysts Say

TSMC will struggle to plug the hole left by Apple Inc.’s declining smartphone orders in 2019, according to Sanford C. Bernstein’s Mark Li, who has told clients to prepare for the firm’s first annual profit drop in eight years. CGS-CIMB Securities’ Peter Chan, whose recommendation in October to sell the shares proved prescient, says TSMC’s still-high valuations will spook tech investors into owning cheaper alternatives in Asia and the U.S. instead. While a downturn is widely expected after Appl...

Apple HomePod comes to China at $400 amid iPhone sales woes

Empirical SCOTUS: Which Supreme Court cases are generating the most interest?

This Supreme Court term, like the past several before it, has been slow out of the gates. It also marks another term with a new justice – this time Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The justices often find consensus both early on in a term and after a largescale change, defining or redefining their jurisprudential boundaries only later. The justices have released five decisions in argued cases so far, all of them free even from concurrences. This is a new high count for unanimous decisions without a conc...

Samsung, like Apple, feels sting of slowing global growth

NEW YORK (AP) — Samsung expects its quarterly operating profit will be nearly 29 percent lower than last year, potentially unsettling a tech sector already skittish about slowing global economic growth.

Apple forever changed the biggest tech event of the year by not showing up

CES (Consumer Electronics Show) used to be the biggest tech event of the year. Close to 5,000 companies go to Las Vegas for the industry trade show — but Apple has never been one of those companies.  Apple took a different approach to maximize press coverage by carefully choosing the date to announce new product launches and minimize competition for big tech headlines and stories.  Other companies like Motorola, Samsung, Google, Blackberry followed suit, which could have contributed to a 2,000 ...

Sorry Apple, I’m still not ready to upgrade my iPhone

Last week, in light of Apple’s revised revenue guidance, my TC colleague Ron Miller made a tongue-in-cheek apology for taking so long to upgrade his old iPhone. He wrote that he had finally bitten the bullet and shelled out to upgrade  a more than three-years-old (but still working) iPhone 6 for a shiny new iPhone XR ($750+) — deciding at the last minute to spare his wallet the full $1,000 whack for the top of the range iPhone XS.  Ergo, even the famous Apple premium only stretches so far. I br...

Billions of Xiaomi Shares Are About to Be Unlocked for Sale

It’s been painful: Xiaomi has dropped to HK$11.10 from a listing price of HK$17, sinking 7.5 percent Tuesday as JPMorgan Chase & Co. gave up its buy recommendation on the stock. More than 3 billion shares will be unlocked, equal to about 19 percent of those outstanding, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Touted by bankers last year as China’s answer to Apple Inc., Beijing-based Xiaomi sought a valuation that would have made it the most expensive smartphone maker in the world.
