5 Best Alternatives to the Flip Video Camera

The Flip video camera, launched in 2007, introduced a practical, portable video recorder. It was slim enough to slide into a pocket. Had a flip out USB connector so you didn’t have to worry about finding cables. And best of all it had a built in LCD screen so you actually knew what you were filming (this was a novelty in 2007). It pre-dated the current iteration of action cameras we know of today, introducing video recording well before GoPro. It also led to a new category of tiny camcorders ...

China Gives US Tech the Silent Treatment

Patience may be a virtue. For U.S. tech companies looking to do deals that involve China, it is also an expensive necessity. From a report: Cisco Systems and Applied Materials each received different lessons on that score last week. On Friday, Cisco found its $2.6 billion deal to buy Acacia Communications in serious jeopardy after Acaia announced it was terminating the merger due to a lack of approval from Chinese regulators. Cisco's unusual response was that it did, in fact, receive the necessa...

Once upon a time, Box’s Aaron Levie was just a guy with an idea for a company: 15 years ago as a USC student, he conceived of a way to simply store and share files online.

Lo Toney has some ideas about how to (really) bring VC into the 21st century

Last week, we suggested that for a truly diverse venture industry, the limited partners who provide investing capital to VCs — institutions like universities and hospital systems — need to start incorporating diversity mandates into their work. Say a venture firm wanted to secure a commitment from the University of Texas System; it would first need to agree, in writing, to pour a certain percentage of its capital into startups founded by underrepresented groups. Given how fragmented the world of...

We did the math to calculate how many hours it took Bob Iger to make what his workers earned in one year when he ran Disney

Disney CEO Bob Iger just stepped down, and while it's not surprising that CEOs like him make a lot more money than their employees, the massive extent of that pay gap can sometimes be overlooked. US companies are required to publish their chief executives' annual compensation, as well as the ratio of that compensation to the annual pay of the company's median employee. Using those ratios, we calculated how long it took CEOs at 19 of the biggest companies in the US to make what at typical emplo...
