The Growth Trap
[ growing for growth sake! vs growing in a world/area that is not conducive to grow ] When Twitter went public in 2013, its stock soared and its value jumped to $25 billion. Its founders and early investors got rich. But since then, the company has been considered a failure, despite the fact that it boasts 320 million active users, because it's not growing fast enough. Douglas Rushkoff, author of "Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity," talks to Steve Paikin about why he sees the push for more growth as dangerous. // true capitalists (shareholder, crony, greedy) w/o self-regulation or governance extract all the value there is to extract and then leave, dispersing it to the few who already have [...] WE MUST REWRITE THE RULES OF THE GROWTH GAME ITSELF! [...] you want to optimise the economy based on velocity of money (circulation of money), not share price and value extraction [...]

Börsenpläne von Spotify: Der Sound der Zocker
Eine Milliarde Dollar (880 Millionen Euro) leiht sich der Musikdienst laut "Wall Street Journal" bei Finanzinvestoren und der Großbank Goldman Sachs. Spotify verspricht den Geldgebern neben Zinszahlungen auch Anteile am Unternehmen. Wie viel Spotify zahlen muss und in welcher Größenordnung Anteile den Besitzer wechseln, hängt davon ab, wann die Schweden an die Börse gehen. Mit jedem Halbjahr, in dem das Start-up die Erstemission herauszögert, wird es jedenfalls teurer.

Das macht den Deal hochriskant für Spotify: Von Profitabilität ist der Dienst weit entfernt, 2014 fuhr der Dienst einen Verlust von 162 Millionen Euro ein. Die neuen Schulden könnten das Unternehmen in einen ruinösen Strudel von schrumpfenden Geldreserven, drückender Zinslast und immer mieseren Börsenaussichten reißen.

Google unpaid taxes: France seeks €1.6bn from search giant - BBC News
The figure is substantially more than the £130m the search engine agreed to pay in back taxes to UK authorities. However, France's AFP news agency reported that Google might be able to negotiate and may not pay the full sum. The company's chief executive, Sundar Pichai, is visiting Paris and was due to meet the France's economy minister Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday night. It is not clear if they will discuss the tax issue. Earlier this month, French Finance Minister Michel Sapin ruled out striking a deal with the US company.

Yahoo baut Stellen ab und endet wohl als Ramschware. Der Abstieg des Internet-Pioniers ist auch eine Warnung an Apple, Facebook und Co. [...] Die Krise von Yahoo lässt sich in einer Zahl zusammenfassen: minus 13 Milliarden Dollar. So niedrig bewertet die Börse das Kerngeschäft des amerikanischen Internet-Konzerns inzwischen, hat der Tech-Journalist Matt Levine ausgerechnet. Abzüglich einiger lukrativer Beteiligungen und seiner Bargeldreserven ist Yahoo nichts mehr wert. Weniger als nichts. [...] Die digitalen Mode- und Tech-Magazine, die sie startete, finden wenige Leser. Auch die 2013 gekaufte Blog-Plattform Tumblr entwickelte sich nicht, wie von Mayer erhofft: Von der 1,1-Milliarden-Dollar-Akquisition schreibt Yahoo nun rund ein Viertel ab.

MPs launch tax inquiry after criticism of £130m Google-HMRC deal | Business | The Guardian
MPs have launched an inquiry into the UK’s tax system after the government was accused of allowing Google to pay too little in a £130m deal. The House of Commons Treasury committee announced that it would examine whether a radical shakeup of corporation tax was needed, amid concern that Google has been allowed to get away with an effective rate of 3%. The inquiry is not directed at Google, but will investigate the UK’s shrinking corporate tax base more widely and whether HMRC is doing enough to tackle avoidance. It will ask whether there needs to be a radical shakeup of the system, and whether business taxation could be based on turnover rather than profits. Andrew Tyrie, chairman of the committee, said the UK’s tax law had become too elastic, allowing companies to get away legally with paying too little.

Google agrees £130m UK tax deal with HMRC - BBC News
Google has agreed to pay £130m in back taxes after an "open audit" of its accounts by the UK tax authorities. The company had been accused of "not paying its fair share" of tax, and criticised for complex tax structures. Senior figures at the technology company have said that they want to draw a line under the issue. [...] Tax inquiry Google's move comes after a six year inquiry by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) [ which is underfunded ] . It acted after controversy over the low level of taxes paid by multinational companies that operate in the UK but are headquartered abroad. Despite the UK being one of Google's biggest markets, it paid £20.4m in taxes in 2013. The value of its sales in Britain that year was £3.8bn. The company has been criticised for its complex international tax structures. //&! sweetheart deal, HMRC and the government has shown to be weak! - bbc.in/1Nre9v5 - but be hard on families with children and vulnerable. //&! bit.ly/20kNZmU &! bit.ly/1PNNhHq

YouTube owner Google says it will help fund up to $1m (£650,000) in legal fees for some content creators who have received copyright takedown notices.

However there are exceptions to the law, which vary around the world but can include the use of other material for the purposes of commentary and parody.

Google Plans to Introduce Android Laptops, Replacing Chrome as OS | Re/code
Scale Google loves scale. It shutters products with user numbers that many companies would kill for (remember Reader?) because they don’t reach the billion-plus of its flagships. Chrome primarily lives on Chromebook devices. Gartner estimates Google will ship 7.9 million devices this year. Android, Google recently announced, crossed 1.4 billion users. Very different scale. Despite some traction, Chromebooks are still a tiny slice of the market, and Google has faced difficulty corralling developers to build apps for it. It hasn’t had the same problem with Android. [...] Google has manically reiterated that it does, in fact, have a cohesive plan for mobile. A chief Android distinction from Chrome is that it is built for mobile behavior. A vote for Android is, in some ways, a tacit admission that Google must devote its attention to the devices on which it lives.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai Brings in Less Egotistical Leadership | Re/code
“In leadership at Google, you have to be three-plus standard deviations better than normal in technical ability,” said Bowden, an equity partner at Data Collective who spent eight years at the search giant. That is, Google’s top execs stand well above the average software engineer in skill. That trait, Bowden continued, does not often correlate with an above-average “emotional intelligence” — a capacity for empathy. The savants usually aren’t people persons, said Bowden. Translation: They can be complete jerks. “Sundar,” Bowden added, “is a rare example.” [...] A former Google exec put it less charitably: “All the assholes have left.”

The Financial Times' Gillian Tett explains why walls exist in business. // tunnel vision, ego (tribe, internal competition, withholding information for competitive advantage), blinded, narrow vision, no diversity of perspective, background, opinion. division of labour has downside if it becomes too rigid and small. // there is more than one way to define the world. // threat to power structure if you break up status quo and introduce diversity. // world exists between boundaries.

VW: Das Auto? Der Betrug! Jakob Augstein zur Abgas-Affäre - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Nicht nur Banken betrügen, auch die Industrie. Das zeigt der VW-Skandal. Deutschland hält sich eher ans Recht als das Ausland? Ein Irrtum. Guter Kapitalismus, böser Kapitalismus? Gibt's nicht. Nur die Notwendigkeit des starken Staates. [...] Die Amoralität ist in der Idee der Firma an sich eingebaut. Menschen haben (vielleicht) Moral. Firmen nicht. Da liegt ein grundlegendes Missverständnis im modernen Kapitalismus. [...] In einem langen Artikel über Wirtschaftsethik hat der "Economist" einmal geschrieben: "Unternehmen, die lügen und betrügen, können nicht erwarten, lange im Geschäft zu sein, selbst wenn ihre Handlungen vom Gesetz gestattet sind." Wir wissen, dass das Gegenteil der Fall ist. Aber so streuen sich die Gralshüter der liberalen Wirtschaftsideologie selbst Sand in die Augen. [ The Corporation (2005) by Joel Bakan ] [...] Beschreibt das nicht perfekt das Wesen der großen Konzerne - je größer, desto besser? Und VW ist sehr groß. [ Amazon's monopsony ]

What I Learned This Week About Tim Cook’s Apple | Re/code
[ always along the motto: extension of you, part of you. The new Apple under Jobs was NOT an overnight success! It build on its differentiation, strong base, a cult, a Tribe, 1000 True Fans, and build on it stride by stride. Most capitalistic company out of SV, no counter-culture out of largest corp on world. & can pull of iAd coup because it has monopsony! & Duopoly w Android. ] Many people love Apple, others despise it. But, even without Jobs, it cannot be ignored. There simply is no other company that combines such a high-quality hardware line with such well-regarded software platforms. A faltering Samsung has the former, but not the latter. A strong and admirable Google has the latter, but not the former. If you didn’t believe that before, this week’s event made it crystal clear, with once-bitter rivals like Microsoft and Adobe showing up onstage to boast about how well their products worked with new Apple hardware and software.

Five years, building a culture, and handing it off. - Laughing Meme
Nothing we know [ about X ] should be assumed to be true. // Technology is the product of the culture that builds it. // If you want to build for the long term, the only guarantee is change. Invest in your people and your ability to ask questions, not your current answers. Your current answers are wrong, or they will be soon. // Software development should be thought of as a cycle of continual learning and improvement rather a progression from start to finish, or a search for correctness. If you aren’t shipping, you aren’t learning. If it slows down shipping, it probably isn’t worth it. Maturity is knowing when to make the trade off and when not to. // You build a culture of learning by optimizing globally not locally. Your improvement, over time, as a team, with shared tools, practices and beliefs is more important than individual pockets of brilliance. And more satisfying.

Heads-up, Google: Fighting EU Is Useless - Bloomberg View
That approach was part of a charm offensive. Last year, Google doubled its EU lobbying budget to 3.5 million euros ($3.9 million), according to anti-corruption group Transparency International's Integritywatch.eu site, which aggregates information from official EU disclosures. That isn't much less than Deutsche Bank or ExxonMobil is spending. According to data on the same site, Google has held more meetings with EU officials than any other company since last November -- 32 in all, although only one of these officially had to do with the antitrust case, which has developed since 2010. "We want to do a better job of listening to Europe's concerns and explaining how our business works with Europe," the company said of these efforts.

People are underestimating Snapchat just like they underestimated Facebook - Vox
In fact, almost every one of today's big internet companies — Yahoo, Google, Facebook, and Twitter — faced similar skepticism in their early years. Back in 2007, Kara Swisher (who now runs Re/code which, like Vox.com, is part of Vox Media) expressed astonishment that Facebook could be worth $15 billion. A year before that, a Slate headline read "$1 Billion for Facebook? LOL!" (Facebook is now worth $260 billion.) [....] A company's early ad revenue just doesn't tell us anything interesting about its long-term earnings potential. It takes a while for a company to hire a sales team, settle on an effective advertising format, and build awareness among potential customers. [...] But while it might take time for Snapchat to build a successful advertising program, there's little doubt that it will be able to. Every day, 100 million people open up the Snapchat app. As long as that's true, advertisers are going to be willing to pay top dollar to reach them.

And acquisitions that help it make Yahoo! a mobile app company, relevant in the ecosystem (see Flurry acquisition, Brightroll, ... ad network/platform). Yahoos one disadvantage is that it doesn't have as much context to serve relevant - re-targeted ads to customers compared to FB, Twitter, Google. Same with Yahoo.com, its a bland/blunt page.

What Google’s Alphabet Really Spells for Silicon Valley: “I” Is for Innovation (And Also Irrelevance) | Re/code
Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive. // To my mind, Google needn’t agonize about staying current to what the kids are up to quite as much as it seems. I know former Intel star Andy Grove once said that “only the paranoid survive,” but everyone from my vantage point seems have taken that to extremes. In fact, aging probably shouldn’t be so much a worry anywhere in Silicon Valley, given the most powerful companies are run by these same ever-aging execs, and most of the money funding the startups is controlled by another cadre of mature — almost always — former dudes. The olds run the place more than it looks. [...] To modify the famed “Godfather II” quote from Hyman Roth: This is the life you have chosen (to always change). Plato once noted that “nothing is real, because everything is always changing or becoming something else.” It’s an old saying, for sure, but it still works for me and maybe realizing that is not such a bad thing.

All Android operating systems infringe Java API packages, Oracle says | Ars Technica UK
The ongoing legal saga known as the Oracle-Google copyright battle took a huge leap Wednesday when Oracle claimed the last six Android operating systems are "infringing Oracle's copyrights in the Java platform." That's according to the latest paperwork Oracle filed in the five-year-old closely watched case that so far has resulted in the determination that Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are, indeed, copyrightable. [...] The latest legal brouhaha comes two months after the Supreme Court declined to review Google's contentions that assigning copyright to APIs, sets a dangerous precedent and allows "copyright monopolies over the basic building blocks of computer design and programming." [...] [&] fair use right [came up][.] Complicating matters more, however, is the fact that there's no clear answer as to what constitutes fair use. [...] [I]t's decided on a case-by-case basis. According to the US Copyright Office.

No, Google’s new “Alphabet” structure is really nothing like Berkshire Hathaway - Quartz
Page pledges to “rigorously handle capital allocation and work to make sure each business is executing well.” That would be very Buffett-like, but the types of businesses Alphabet has under its umbrella definitely aren’t. They’re speculative money losers with no clear future, as opposed to Berkshire’s signature cash generators. [...] Unlike Berkshire, Google doesn’t have clearly and publicly articulated criteria for acquisitions, and little experience (and possibly interest) in buying and integrating big, mature, money-making businesses. One of Berkshire’s major advantages is that it manages to pay a lower price for businesses as it offers prestige, a long-term home, and a history of giving management autonomy. Alphabet doesn’t yet offer that. Berkshire headquarters and subsidiaries are also marked by an obsession with frugality, while Google is known for its free cafeteria and extravagantly designed headquarters. But there’s hope its new CFO is bringing some discipline.

Alphabet Is More Than Just a New Name | Re/code
Shareholders Don’t Like Moonshots. [...] Organizing as a Conglomerate Makes a Lot of Sense While Google’s CEOs say the new entity will never be a “consumer-driven business,” it’s quite likely that subsidiaries like Android or YouTube could turn out that way. By changing not only it name, but also by reorganizing in a substantial way, Google will change the way the market perceives it. Because they have their hands in many different pots, conglomerates are traditionally seen as more stable investments than technology or advertising companies. Being a conglomerate also makes it much easier for Google to continue growing its business through acquisitions and spinoffs.

Here’s What Google’s Alphabet Businesses Might Look Like — the Qualcomm of Medical Tech | Re/code
Life Sciences, the two-year old health research group inside Google X, officially moved out of X and became its own standalone company under Alphabet. Andy Conrad, a cell biologist, who has led the division since 2013, will be its chief executive. On the same day, Life Sciences announced a new deal with DexCom, a San Diego, Calif. firm that builds continuous glucose monitors for diabetics. Conrad’s unit will create a cloud-based, miniaturized sensor — about the size of two pennies stacked atop one another, according to DexCom CEO Kevin Sayer. DexCom will then sell it. [ imagine it being connected to your smartphone and you quantifying your activity and meals ] [ 10% of NHS budget is spend on diabetes care, management, prevention, and probably include amputations/blindness because of unmanaged diabetes too. ]
