Google has more control over Android than we realize, and right now, companies like Huawei have no other choice but to accept that (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google's Android operating system (OS) may be open source, but as we have been reminded this week, the tech giant has complete control over the apps and services that make its platform valuable.  Google's firm grip on the Android ecosystem was on full display Sunday when Reuters reported the company would be revoking its Android license from the Chinese manufacturing-giant, Huawei. That means, as long as Trump's ban remains, Huawei manufactured devices will be allowed to run Android's open s...

A month after layoffs, Udacity's famous founder says the online school expects to do $100 million in revenue this year

Udacity seemed to stumble last month when it restructured and laid off about 20% of its workforce. But founder, executive chairman and interim CEO Sebastian Thrun tells Business Insider that the business is on track to do $100 million in revenue this year, up from $88 million in 2018.  He says the layoffs were not from financial struggle, but rather from a strategic change that made a good chunk of the full-time staff unnecessary. The change also came from his desire to make his start...

Google wants to be a company that 'helps you get things done,' but there's an important catch you need to know (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google execs had a clear message at the company's annual I/O developer conference: "Helpful, helpful, helpful. Google wants to be more helpful." The catch — as we should know by now — is that a product can only be as helpful as the information shared with it.  Google is proud to have these privacy options available to users — not cutting off those entirely who have less faith in the company. But coming out of I/O, it's clear that the tech giant wants to convert even the skeptics. Visit Busines...

Samsung’s CEO says Galaxy Fold launch news is arriving soon

Samsung has been understandably silent about the Galaxy Fold for the last couple of weeks. The company’s been reassessing issues with the foldable’s display after initially chalking problems with review units up to small sample sizes and user error. It’s tough to say how difficult and expensive a fix will be, but this surely isn’t the sort of press it was hoping for with its first to market device. CEO DJ Koh is finally ready to talk about the Fold — or at least offer news that there will soon b...
