Wall Street thinks Slack’s antitrust complaint against Microsoft is a ‘smart business decision,’ but won’t change anything (WORK, MSFT)

Slack has filed an antitrust complaint against Microsoft with the European Commission, accusing the tech giant of anti-competitive behavior with its chat and collaboration app Teams. The complaint wasn't exactly surprising: Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has previously called Microsoft "unhealthily preoccupied" with "killing" Slack. Regardless of the outcome of the complaint, Wall Street analysts say it's a "smart business decision" for Slack because it puts more scrutiny on Microsoft's dominan...

IRS' 555 telephone exchange is real

Image courtesy SimpsonsWorld via Giphy.com Do you remember your first phone number? I'm talking about the one when you were a kid. The one you parents made you memorize in case you needed to call home for any reason. For younger folks, that's not a problem. But when you reach a certain age, not that I'm confessing to any chronologically specific range, those early memories tend to fade. Despite that natural process, some of us still remember our childhood phone numbers. You'll have to trust m...

The CEO of Slack says that Microsoft is 'unhealthily preoccupied' with 'killing' the company because it threatens email (WORK, MSFT)

Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield told The Verge that Microsoft is "unhealthily preoccupied" with "killing" Slack via its Microsoft Teams tool.  He says that while Microsoft itself often compares itself to Slack, Teams is more of a direct competitor to the likes of Zoom, thanks to its focus on voice and video calling. In his view, Microsoft focuses on Slack as a rival because it poses a threat to email, which would in turn diminish the appeal of the Microsoft Office 365 cloud productivity suite.  ...
