The Workforce Is About to Change Dramatically

"For the first time ever, the world's largest companies are telling hundreds of thousands of workers to stay away from the office for a full year, or longer," notes the Atlantic. "If, in five years, these edicts have no lingering effects on office culture, that would be awfully strange..." Ambitious engineers, media makers, marketers, PR people, and others may be more inclined to strike out on their own, in part because they will, at some point, look around at their living room and realize: I...

Mark Zuckerberg just became the third person on Earth worth over $100 billion. Here's how the Facebook CEO makes and spends his fortune.

Mark Zuckerberg's fortune surpassed $100 billion after Facebook launched its TikTok competitor in the US. That makes the tech titan only the third current centi-billionaire on Earth. In June, advertisers including Verizon, Honda, and Ben & Jerry's boycotted Facebook over the social network's lack of hate-speech moderation. The boycott briefly sunk both Facebook's share price and CEO Mark Zuckerberg's net worth. Zuckerberg drives an affordable car and wears basic clothes, but appears to splur...

Microsoft is poised to pay billions for TikTok, but it's a tremendously risky move that will put CEO Satya Nadella's strategy to the ultimate test (MSFT)

On the face of it, Microsoft's decision to explore the possibility of spending billions on a TikTok acquisition seems like a weird business decision.  Under CEO Satya Nadella, Microsoft has doubled down on cloud computing and productivity software, leaving the Xbox console as its last major consumer brand.  TikTok, a mega-popular viral video app with 80 million daily active users in the United States, doesn't seem to tie into that strategy at all.  But Nadella has earned the benefit of the dou...

The simple productivity hack Steve Jobs used to hone Apple's focus and set the company on the path toward its $1.9 trillion valuation

Steve Jobs launched two of the most valuable companies — Apple and Pixar. Successful leaders like Google cofounder Larry Page and former Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang both went to Jobs for leadership advice.  Jobs believed that smart leaders will focus on only one goal each year, instead of making a list of what they want to achieve.  Concentrating on one goal at a time can allow leaders to obtain greater focus, Jobs said.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. In the fall of 2007, newly...

Emails and IMs from the CEOs of Amazon, Facebook and Google show how they think about acquiring companies — and it has little to do with the quality of a startup's product (AMZN, FB, GOOG)

Documents made public Wednesday as part of a Congressional antitrust hearing give insight into the concerns of tech's most powerful CEOs leading up to game-changing acquisitions. Amazon, Facebook and Google all made big purchases of startups whose technology, the documents reveal, their teams found to be lacking. Instead, the deals got done because the companies feared losing market share or wanted a leg up in a new sector.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. If you're lookin...

Newly-released emails reveal how Google hoped to pay $50 million for YouTube in 2006, and why it ended up paying $1.65 billion (GOOG)

New emails released as part of Wednsesday's Congressional tech antitrust hearing reveal a fascinating exchange between Google executives who were considering buying YouTube back in 2005. The emails reveal that Google thought it could buy YouTube for just $50 million. "They want something in the $500M range, something like 'the MySpace deal'" one exchange reads. Months later, Google acquired the company for $1.65 billion in a historic deal. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. I...

Instagram User’s Lawsuit Over Terminated Account Gets Revived (But Not For Long)–Teatotaller v. Facebook

The plaintiff, a “queer hipster oasis” tea/coffee shop in Somersworth, NH, claims Instagram terminated its account without notice. It sued Instagram in small claims court for $9,999 and account restoration. There must be dozens or hundreds of similar lawsuits against social media services, and all of them will lose–even those filed in small claims court, which routinely bends over backwards to help pro se plaintiffs. Indeed, the small-claims judge dismissed this lawsuit. Apparently, in New Hamp...

Why wouldn't the Trump campaign get the rights to use the music before putting up the ad?

I don't know why I'm able to see it here, so watch quickly before this one goes down too.The Trump tweet showing us the ad switched to an announcement that it had been disabled because of a copyright claim, and and later the Trump tweet was deleted.Anyway, here's a Yahoo article explaining what happened. It wasn't an ad made by the Trump campaign but a fan-made ad that Trump just retweeted. People just use things and don't attend to the legal niceties. The campaign would, I assume, clear the rig...

Weekend reading: Is cash kaput post-Covid-19?

What caught my eye this week. I have mentioned before my group of friends on an email list who’ve been debating Covid-19 since January. Well, this same group of friends was previously preoccupied by arguing the future of cash. I think cash use is doomed to dwindle in the West, probably fast. Most of them think that would be terrible. Now it seems the streams are crossing. It’s becoming clear from the data that cash use has crashed in the Covid-19 era and the knock-on lockdown. You can’t touc...

These are the execs leading Twitter as the company scrambles to get its house in order after the devastating hacker attack (TWTR)

Twitter suffered a blow to its image this week when hackers took over and posted a bitcoin scam on the verified accounts of some of Twitter's biggest users: Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, many others. Only a few months ago, Twitter had done battle with Elliott Management who was trying to oust CEO Jack Dorsey. Twitter cut a deal that ultimately added new board members, including one from Elliott.  Twitter also fairly routinely reshuffles its executive leadership. Here's a rundown of the pe...

Lakers, out of their comfort zone, try to connect in unique NBA environment

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — This time last year, Rob Pelinka was introducing Anthony Davis, one of the biggest prizes of the offseason, at a celebratory press conference and putting finishing touches on what figured to be a championship-contending team. Fast forward to now, where the Lakers’ general manager is one of just 36 people in the team travel party, meaning everyone has to wear the odd hat here and there. One of Pelinka’s jobs? Dribble cone.
