Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt Says Tech Companies Can Regulate Themselves

Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt in a new interview rejected the notion that Capitol Hill has a role to play in regulating big tech companies, breaking with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's recent willingness to work with lawmakers. From a report: "The problem is if you write a rule, inevitably, you fix the solution on a specific solution, but the technology moves so quickly," Schmidt says. "It's generally better to let the tech companies do these things," he adds. Schmidt, who ran Google from 2001 ...

One of the tech industry's leading critics says Apple and Google's new 'screen time' features will never work because they ignore the underlying problem (AAPL, GOOGL, FB)

Tristan Harris is happy that companies like Apple and Google are starting to focus on their customers' well-being. But efforts such as Apple's Screen Time are a bit misguided, because they don't address the underlying problem of attention manipulation, said Harris, the cofounder of the Center for Humane Technology. Instead of giving consumers tools to monitor how much they use their devices and apps, tech companies ought to be encouraging users to do other things that are more fulfilling, he s...

These are the industries most likely to be taken over by robots

Lots of jobs involve tasks that could be taken over by robots. Bridgewater Associates, the most successful hedge fund in the world, recently highlighted a 2016 study by McKinsey & Company that analyzed what industries are most susceptible to automation. Jobs with lots of manual labor in a predictable environment could see higher automation in the years to come, while jobs involving managing human employees are likely safe for now.

AOC Quit Facebook. The Media Bungled the Story.

Photo by bruce mars from Pexels Over the weekend, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced on a podcast that she was quitting Facebook as part of her efforts to cut back on her social media use more generally.

Investors controlling $3B in Facebook stock demand Zuckerberg's ouster, and they will lose

A consortium of Facebook investors led by Trillium Asset Management and controlling $3B in shares has put a proposal before the shareholders to fire Mark Zuckerberg for his mishandling of a string of ghastly scandals; they will lose, however, because Facebook's share structure gives Zuckerberg's personal shares more votes than other shareholders, ensuring that the company can run as a cult of personality beholden to his whims, rather than one disciplined by shareholder choices (this corporate s...
