Broadcom CEO Dangles CA Technologies Bait, Investors Bite
Tan told investors during the company’s third fiscal quarter of 2018 conference call Thursday that he thinks Broadcom will be able to tap into CA Technologies’ current software customers to sell its switches, routers, and fiber optic equipment.

“Just as we have done with hypercloud players, we believe we can bring our compute offload solutions, our Tomahawk switches, Jericho routers, fiber optics, and our server storage connectivity portfolio directly to these same large enterprises that are buying CA software,” Tan told investors, according to transcripts. “Through CA we believe we have a big doorway to engage strategically with these customers and provide them direct access at very compelling economics to the same leading edge … storage and compute technologies that are used to enable the cloud service providers today.”

Apple’s Acquisition of Shazam Approved by the European Commission – MacStories
Last December, Apple announced plans to acquire music-discovery service Shazam. The service, which makes iOS, watchOS, and macOS apps that can detect songs, TV shows, and advertisements from their sound signatures, has been on Apple’s platforms since the early days of iOS and is the engine behind Siri’s ability to recognize songs.
Since February, the deal has been on hold while the European Commission considered whether it would adversely impact competition. In a press release today, Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, who is in charge of competition policy, explained...

Broadcom can’t get there from here
“The tiny margin in CA’s enterprise software business, which contrasts with its richly profitable mainframe division, won’t help Broadcom hit its projected EBITDA targets, no matter how many ‘adjustments’ are made. In fact, the division stands in the way.”

WSO2 CEO Tyler Jewell: Ballerina and the End of Middleware
WSO2 revenue: “The company will do probably around $50 million in sales this year. We’ll grow 60 percent year over year.”

And, on Quest’s venture portfolio during the Dell acquisition:

‘About that same time, Quest was getting acquired by Dell. And then Vinny calls up one day. He was starting a venture capital company and asked if I would like to get involved. He owned 30 or 40 percent of Quest, so he made a huge fortune. I’m like “Well, Vinny, that sounds really interesting, but I’ve just decided to start this company Codenvy. We’re really excited about it. We’re gonna go build this Cloud IDE.” And he says, “Great. Come on board as a partner. Manage our dev ops investments, and we’ll make Codenvy one of our investments as well.”

‘And so sure enough, he launches Toba Capital, and he buys back all the investments from Dell. So all the investments that Quest had, Dell didn’t have an investment arm. And so there’s a dozen or so out there, WSO2 and Sauce Labs and a couple others. And he just buys ’em back. And then he starts investing more into these companies. And at that point in time started investing more aggressively in WSO2, and I joined its board. And Toba eventually increased its position over time pretty significantly. And I was involved in about four or five different boards on these dev ops companies while I was running Codenvy from 2012 to 2017.’

What do YouTube, Instagram & GitHub have in common? – Om on Tech
...I wouldn’t be surprised if in six years, the GitHub deal will look as astute as the YouTube buy or the Instagram acquisition.
2006: Google buys YouTube for $1.65 billion. Owns:#1,2 search engines; video web, secures future
2012: Facebook buys Instagram for $1 billion. Owns #1 #2 Social platform. Future proofs itself.
2018: Microsoft buys GitHub for $7.5 billion. Buys future for its cloud, dev platform

Splunk acquires VictorOps to take it – and you – into site reliability engineering
“Adding these tools to Splunk’s roster, Mann said, means it can now monitor apps, provide an environment in which to fix them and allow the deeper investigations that figure out root cause of problems and allow re-designs of infrastructure and code to stop them recurring.”

Microsoft’s plan for GitHub: “Make GitHub better at being GitHub” | Ars Technica
Reddit AMA with Nat Friedman doesn't really reveal a whole lot.
As part of Microsoft's $7.5 billion purchase of cloud source code repository GitHub, the company is installing a new CEO. Once the deal closes (which is expected to happen later this year), out will go GitHub co-founder Chris Wanstrath and in will come Nat Friedman. Friedman is the former CEO of Xamarin, the cross-platform .NET implementation that Microsoft bought in 2016.
Friedman brings solid open-source bona fides: core parts of the Xamarin stack were open source, and Friedman's previous company, Ximian, was created to develop the open-source GNOME project. His appointment should quell many of the fears that open-source developers have about the takeover. To engage with the community further, Friedman today did a Reddit AMA to answer questions about the acquisition.
