Apple's App Store downloads went into decline, possibly for the first time ever

But App Store revenue growth is decelerating, too. Analysts are expressing doubts about the power of Apple's myt...

Facebook's big bet on 'Stories' may go even better than its pivot to mobile (FB)

Spotify has bloodied Apple's nose once before. Now, it has a chance to cut its $853 billion rival down to size. (AAPL)

Spotify has gone to war against Apple in Europe, complaining that the way it runs its App Store is anti-competitive. It's a bold move for a company whose market cap is 32 times smaller than Apple's. But Spotify has bloodied Apple's nose before when it circumvented App Store fees. It's bad news for Apple that some of its most popular app makers keep challenging the App Store's economics. Spotify's complaint comes as there's never been greater political will to regulate big tech firms. Spotify ...

When $9.8 billion Dropbox announced Monday that it plans to acquire e-signature startup HelloSign for $230 million, analysts were not surprised. Some analysts see this deal, which is expected to close Q1 2019, as a pushback at leading e-signature company DocuSign — a partner to Dropbox that may have turned into something of a frenemy.   Last fall, $8 billion DocuSign acquired a cloud-based document management platform called SpringCM, in a move that could bring it into direct competition wit...

Venezuela Bond Investors Say the End May Be Near for Maduro's Regime

World leaders are now saying they’ll recognize Juan Guaido, the head of the National Assembly, as the interim president.
