Most Amazon Brands Are Duds, Not Disrupters, Study Finds (slashdot)

An anonymous reader shares a report: The explosion of Amazon's private-label products -- batteries, baby wipes, jeans, tortilla chips, sofas -- has prompted concern that the world's biggest online retailer could use its clout to promote these house brands at the expense of merchants selling similar products on the web store. The issue even surfaced in Senator Elizabeth Warren's recent proposal to break up big technology companies. Turns out most Amazon-branded goods are flops that don't threaten...

We Can Ignore The Iraq War Dead-Enders

Ari Fleischer has taken to Twitter to defend his former boss George W. Bush from accusations of lying America into the Iraq War. As Matt Shuman amply shows elsewhere on TPM, Fleischer was quickly and thoroughly demolished by critics. Fleisher’s hapless performance got me thinking about how the debate over the Iraq War, the most consequential American foreign policy decision in the last fifty years, is now over. The only people still defending the Iraq War are those whose personal reputation is...

Fox News contributor called ‘complete moron’ for falsely saying US was first to end slavery

Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich attempted to counter Senator Elizabeth Warren’s call to discuss the injustices of slavery, and its lasting systemic impact on generations of African-Americans, by claiming that the United States does not get “enough credit” for ending slavery. While discussing reparations to descendents of enslaved people on Fox News’ "Outnumbered" on Tuesday, Ms Pavlich claimed that the US was the first country to abolish slavery. “They keep blaming America for the sin of sl...

State AGs put tech giants on notice: 'Something must be done with these companies ... they have become too big'

The attorney general for Louisiana, Jeff Landry, has described a growing unease among US attorneys general about the power of tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

Google's weird name and logo for its new gaming service is part of a clever disappearing act (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google's new game streaming service is called Stadia. It's an apt name with a pretty logo, but it's missing something.  Looking at the Stadia logo, you'd never know it was part of Google — and there's a good reason for that. Google took the wraps off its game streaming service on Tuesday with a barrage of fanfare, high-octane demos and a shiny new name and logo. Meet: Stadia. As far as names go, it's not bad. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, Stadia is a plural form of stadiums — an apt ...
