Why Readers Don’t Get the True Story — The Information
The costs of off-the-record reporting are increasingly greater than the benefits, as the culture of talking without attribution gives companies too much control. // lots of companies use this practice / PR ... for what? have good relationships, tend the relationships with reporters/journalists? Give them a sense of being in THEIR circle? From outsiders view it looks like 'patting on the head like a child?' // Sarah Lacy once talks about it that there must be more stuff than Techopus. But the cheerleaders within the bubble of success, fame, notoriety and money ... WILL not look, dig, investigate ... because they are hired as cheerleaders (pageviews business model)

Robert Reich - President Obama is now selling his proposed Trans...
President Obama is now selling his proposed Trans Pacific Partnership as necessary to contain China. "Either China writes the rules of global trade or we do," he said Friday. But his trade pact is really a giveaway to American-based global corporations that initiated it and are pushing it in Congress -- and which are making and selling all over the world, and shifting profits to wherever they pay the lowest taxes (some are even morphing into foreign corporations). And those same U.S. based corporations do whatever China wants to gain access to that huge market. As an Apple executive told The New York Times, “We don’t have an obligation to solve America’s problems.”

Apple droht Steuernachzahlung von 19 Milliarden Dollar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Seine Anleger hat Apple bereits vor hohen Nachzahlungen gewarnt, weil die EU das irische Steuersparmodell prüft. Nun hat ein Bankanalyst die mögliche Höhe berechnet: bis zu 19 Milliarden Dollar - für den iPhone-Konzern ein Klacks.

How The Facebook Bubble Is Driving Online Startups Into The Arms Of Offline Advertising | TechCrunch
FB accounts for >70% of all Social Media Ad spending! The rest is spend on Twitter and elsewhere. Programmatic Advertising is a crutch for native Web advertising to compete with FBs ability to slice and dice and analyse every nook and cranny. FB likes to be the web equivalent; Internet.org and asking/offering content creators/news papers to host content inside their Walls. And remember, Google missed this Social train badly, tried w Google+ after failing with Buzz. Was also late with (native) Mobile Search & just got going. And their last quarter(s) hinted at a stall of their advertising business and Wall Street doesn't like seeing this behemoth relying on just one business model while Nest Labs was a defensive acquisition (competing w Apple) and they lost out to FB to acquire WhatsApp. And if any Google X project will be able to live up to AdSense(Google Search) is questionable. Google might begin slowly dying soon in next 5 years by thousand cuts, like MSFT late 90's. Time is ripe.

NYT - EU and Google
“With more than a decade of hindsight, the theories supporting the case against Microsoft have all but fallen apart, and the pursuit of the company that makes Windows may suggest a reason for skepticism about this fight against Google: The tech marketplace is fluid and unpredictable. The giants that look most unbeatable today could falter in ways that may once have seemed unthinkable — and without a lot of help from the government.” [...] Google makes most of its money from search ads, but the market for such direct advertising may be tapped out. The next great wave of digital advertising — a market far bigger than search spots — will come from ad budgets now reserved for TV commercials, and many observers bet that Facebook, not Google, is in the best position to get that business. &! bit.ly/1aCgTK7 &! Growth stalls eventually 4all companies >> bit.ly/1DpxFXl &! youtu.be/SdJz93aIvA0?t=20m talk abt Google Search business practices and their way to "add value." And Lobbying activities.

Fortune 500 firms in 1955 vs. 2014; 89% are gone, and we’re all better off because of that dynamic ‘creative destruction’ | AEIdeas
Economic Lesson: That’s a lot of churning and creative destruction, and it’s probably safe to say that almost all of today’s Fortune 500 companies will be replaced by new companies in new industries over the next 59 years, and for that we should be thankful. The constant turnover in the Fortune 500 is a positive sign of the dynamism and innovation that characterizes a vibrant consumer-oriented market economy, and that dynamic turnover is speeding up in today’s hyper-competitive global economy. Steven Denning pointed out a few years in Forbes that fifty years ago, the life expectancy of a firm in the Fortune 500 was around 75 years. Today, it’s less than 15 years and declining all the time. In the end, the creative destruction that results in a constantly changing group of Fortune 500 companies is driven by the endless pursuit of sales and profits that can only come from serving customers with low prices, high quality and great service.

Why Andrew Ng left Google and joined Baidu | Hacker News
When companies turn into giants. It's hard to run through the giant battleship and rally guys for your initiative. And not let talk about moving fast/iterating/experimenting. [...] Question is post Steve Jobs - can keep Apple its Start-up mentality? // "If a guy like Ng was frustrated inside of Google by 'committee meetings' keeping him from getting things done quickly, then that says something about the current state of affairs there." Are the big ones are running scared on the inside, focused defending the existing turf? ++ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RHlx2DPVp0 + https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u-uMqvJw78 + https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yDRt-lPkEM + https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MlPkCg_J24

Allgemeine Zeitung - „Finanzindustrie tötet sich selbst“
RICHARD DAVID PRECHT

Was können Unternehmen in Krisenzeiten tun, um einen fairen Umgang miteinander zu fördern?

Der faire Umgang wird vor allem gefördert, wenn der finanzielle Unterschied in der Belegschaft nicht zu groß ist. Wenn sie gewaltige Gehaltsgefälle in einem Unternehmen haben, können sie noch so lange erzählen, dass alle Mitarbeiter im gleichen Boot sitzen.

[...]

Karrieren verlaufen stromlinienförmig. Quereinsteiger haben im Gegensatz zu früher kaum noch eine Chance.

[...]

Ich glaube, dass wir ein Jahrhundert der Frauen erleben werden.
