Elon Musk called Jeff Bezos a copycat — again — over Amazon's Zoox acquisition. Here are 9 other rivalries that have formed between some of the world's biggest tech CEOs.

Joel McHale describes getting terrorized by Kevin James’ neo-Nazi character in thriller ‘Becky’

Joel McHale says the decision to take a role in the new action thriller “Becky” was an easy one. He’d seen the 2017 film “Bushwick” by co-directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion and loved it, and he’d worked before with teen actor Lulu Wilson who was set to play the title role. And the villain? The really bad guy who would terrify and torture McHale and his family throughout the movie? Well, that cinched it. Kevin James as Dominick and Lulu Wilson as Becky in the new action thriller “Beck...

We must remember that so called lockdown measures were never put in place to save lives or to stop people from contracting the novel coronavirus.  The rationale from the start was to slow, (not stop) the spread and to flatten the proverbial curve so that our health care system would not be overwhelmed.   That was the reason, full stop.   You can't change the narrative after destoying the lives of millions of people, heaping pain and misery on counltless individuals including young children...

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was asked about the company's "10-year vision" during Wednesday's annual shareholder meeting. He said it's more important to ask yourself "What won't change" over the next 10 years before setting your goals. For Amazon, that would include its intense focus on serving the customers, as that leads to other important leadership principles of the company, such as taking a long-term approach. It's an oft-cited idea by Bezos, who shared a similar answer last year, when he said ...
