Impact of virtual drinking trend

Life changed slowly in the beginning of 2020, and then all at once when the realities of COVID-19 set in. Restaurants and bars that were filled in February were shuttered until further notice by mid-March. Thousands of hospitality workers lost their jobs, and small-business owners had to make the tough decision to stay open for takeout, close for now, or close for good — decisions that will shape cities around the world for years to come. It’s impossible to know what’s going to happen next, b...

A note to customers suggests Microsoft is concerned about cloud capacity during the coronavirus crisis – and that it could 'adjust' offers for free services accordingly (MSFT)

Microsoft in a note to customers said it could be faced with capacity constraints as demand for its cloud services continue to grow — especially as more people work from home amid the coronavirus crisis.

Microsoft Teams and Slack are taking their battle for the remote workplace to the next level, as both build big momentum amid the coronavirus crisis (MSFT, WORK)

Slack and Microsoft Teams both recently announced metrics that hinted how much the coronavirus crisis has bolstered their businesses, as more companies turn to remote work to help stem the spread of COVID-19. Analysts say that the increased focus on both apps is going to take their already-contentious rivalry to the next level. Some analysts think Microsoft will be the clear winner here because many companies already have Teams as part of the Office 365 productivity suite, and will simply star...

One of the last conservative Democrats in congress loses primary to progressive opponent

Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Illinois) dislikes abortion, Barack Obama, the affordable care act and marriage equality, and likes religious discrimination, domestic surveillance and denying federal benefits to gay couples. If you're wondering why he even has a "D" in his title, here's a clue: he inherited his seat in congress from his own father, courtesy of the state Democratic party. But he's not going to represent the deep blue district any more, because a progressive opponent took it from him in Ill...

All the companies from Y Combinator’s W20 Demo Day, Part IV: Healthcare, Biotech, Fintech and Nonprofits

Y Combinator’s Demo Day was a bit different this time around. As concerns grew over the spread of COVID-19, Y Combinator shifted the event format away from the two-day gathering in San Francisco we’ve gotten used to, instead opting to have its entire class debut to invited investors and media via YC’s Demo Day website. In a bit of a surprise twist, YC also moved Demo Day forward one week citing accelerated pacing from investors. Alas, this meant switching up its plan for each company to have ...

CEO Satya Nadella's decision to name Microsoft's first-ever chief scientific officer shows how AI is key to his master plan to finding the next big market (MSFT)

Microsoft quietly appointed its first chief scientific officer last week. It's the latest addition to Microsoft's C-suite, which analysts say includes other uncommon roles like executive vice president of gaming. These roles underline Nadella's priorities, analysts say, which at the end of the day are artificial intelligence and the cloud. Nadella's lieutenants are especially important now as Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates steps down from Microsoft's board (although he said he still plans to a...

Not Clearly Established A Jailer Can't Spray A Prisoner In The Eyes With Pepper Spray For No Reason, Says Fifth Circuit (techdirt)

A recent decision [PDF] by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals once again highlights the utter absurdity of qualified immunity. To qualify for immunity, all a law enforcement officer needs to do is show they violated someone's rights in a new way -- one not previously considered by the court. Since there's no on-point precedent, it was not "clearly established" that this violation of rights was actually a violation of rights the officer should have been aware of, so the officer walks away from th...

The sudden departure of Salesforce co-CEO Keith Block shows how Marc Benioff is preparing a new generation of talent to take the reins at the cloud giant

Salesforce co-CEO Keith Block has stepped down from his role, less than 2 years after he first ascended to the role in the summer of 2018. Analysts say that it was always a strange choice for Salesforce to have a co-CEO: While they respect Block's success at the company, experts say that his lofty title didn't necessarily give him more power over the company than founder and CEO Marc Benioff, known for doing things his own way. Block's departure could clear the deck for a new generation of lea...
