Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - The Atlantic
Psychologically, however, they are more vulnerable than Millennials were: Rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. It’s not an exaggeration to describe iGen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades. Much of this deterioration can be traced to their phones. [...] You might expect that teens spend so much time in these new spaces because it makes them happy, but most data suggest that it does not. [...] Teens who spend more time than average on screen activities are more likely to be unhappy, and those who spend more time than average on nonscreen activities are more likely to be happy. There’s not a single exception. All screen activities are linked to less happiness, and all nonscreen activities are linked to more happiness. // &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40840823 - Children consuming online time 'like junk food'

A giant problem | The Economist
As our special report this week makes clear, the superstars are admirable in many ways. They churn out products that improve consumers’ lives, from smarter smartphones to sharper televisions. They provide Americans and Europeans with an estimated $280 billion-worth of “free” services—such as search or directions—a year. But they have two big faults. They are squashing competition, and they are using the darker arts of management to stay ahead. Neither is easy to solve. But failing to do so risks a backlash which will be bad for everyone. [...] The world needs a healthy dose of competition to keep today’s giants on their toes and to give those in their shadow a chance to grow.

ARM chip designer to be bought by Japan's Softbank
ARM-Who? bbc.in/29OUgUM //&! 43% premium // on.recode.net/29On8LK - One key question is whether other firms will let SoftBank purchase ARM or if there will be a bidding war. Apple, arguably ARM’s most important client, and Intel, which lost the mobile chip war to ARM, are both potential buyers. The offer is already a generous multiple. As the FT notes, it’s some 70 times ARM’s net income last year.

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!

GoPro Isn’t Doomed Yet. But they must become a software company, fast.
GoPro needed to spend heavily in “video editing automation.”
GoPro needs software in spades, far beyond just something to make editing easier. The company that created the first mass-market visceral experience broadcasting device ought to have a hand in every dimension of the current live revolution, not just be one of its few cameras. That requires software. [...] Most consumers already have all the hardware they need to create video; what they need is software to make this infinity of images comprehensible. As the defensibility of hardware declines, GoPro has an advantage few other makers of software have: fans, tens or even hundreds of millions of them.

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.

Why Was a Facebook Executive Arrested in Brazil? Encryption. | Re/code
Case in point: Facebook executive Diego Dzodan was arrested by Brazilian police Tuesday morning on his way to work for the same reason Brazilian authorities succeeded — albeit temporarily — in having WhatsApp banned from the country back in December: Encryption. Dzodan — who is still detained at the time of this writing — was arrested because of Facebook’s “repeated non-compliance with court orders,” according to a police press release. What does that mean? Brazilian authorities have requested that WhatsApp hand over user messages in multiple criminal investigations over the past few months, and WhatsApp repeatedly claims that it can’t hand over those messages because it doesn’t have them.

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.

Apple, Samsung and Sony face child labour claims - BBC News
Human rights organisation Amnesty has accused Apple, Samsung and Sony, among others, of failing to do basic checks to ensure minerals used in their products are not mined by children. [...] "It is a major paradox of the digital era that some of the world's richest, most innovative companies are able to market incredibly sophisticated devices without being required to show where they source raw materials for their components," said executive director of Afrewatch (Africa Resources Watch) Emmanuel Umpula. "The abuses in mines remain out of sight and out of mind because in today's global marketplace, consumers have no idea about the conditions at the mine, factory and assembly line. We found that traders are buying cobalt without asking questions about how and where it was mined."

"I don't use streaming. I download [music], and I buy a physical [copy]." "It's a bit disposable, streaming," she told Time magazine. "I believe music should be an event." Adele's 25 has sold more than two million copies in the UK since it was released on 20 November. "I know that streaming music is the future, but it's not the only way to consume music," she said. "I can't pledge allegiance to something that I don't know how I feel about yet." The 27-year-old's previous two albums, 19 and 21, are currently available to stream.

Kevin McCloud reveals the designs which have reinvented the suburbs // [the new house] it's energy can start a new context [...] can transform an area. // suburbs have the freedom to design [...] can always revisit and redesign/build new to reflect time and thought // housing is ever more uniform in UK, no supply (no choice) forces demand to accept what is on offer; status quo is one big developer, all houses uniform because its cheaper that way for the developer to build and extract most profit out of contract (lowest bidder symptom), get couple of developers for a plot and you get some difference but still sameness (garden variety) [REFLECTIVE OF SOCIETY AND CAPITALISM AT LARGE, NO INDIVIDUALISM/INDIVIDUALITY.

Spotify Shrinks Music Download Sales, Fights Piracy – Study | Re/code
Is Spotify shrinking the music business, by giving people a good reason not to buy music anymore? Or is Spotify helping the music business, by giving people a good reason not to steal music anymore? Yes! That’s the conclusion from a new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research this month. [...] The nice thing about the study is that it manages to bolster both Spotify’s main argument to the music industry for the past few years — if you don’t let us distribute your music, and get some money for it, the pirates will do it and you’ll get none — and the music labels’ primary worry about streaming — there’s no way we’re going to sell enough subscriptions to replace albums and single-track sales!

Volkswagen's Scandal is Libor on Wheels - Bloomberg View
There's never just one cockroach. That's what we learned from the market-rigging scandals in recent years. Be it the London Interbank Offered Rates, currencies, metals, oil or… (you get the picture), it turned out that every bank and broker that touched every market benchmark left grubby fingerprints of fraud, collusion and deceit. So the revelation that Volkswagen cheated for years on tests measuring how much damage its diesel engines do to the environment raises a mammoth question: Who else did the same? //&! bv.ms/1KFQ16P - PR/spin doctor/marketing/reframing // Corporate Governance is always the topping on the Cake.

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 is Angela Ahrendts doing at Apple? - Fortune
“She motivates people. She inspires people. And she is the sort of person who wants to see things succeed as a team. It’s a rare quality.” [...] Ahrendts believes the key to the company’s future is not just marvelous products, but also engaging and energizing its nearly 100,000 employees, 60% of whom now work in retail division. “If you’re going to employ people anyway,” she says, “why not make them the differentiator? They’re not a commodity.” Now that there are 459 Apple stores in 15 countries, many people have their first Apple experience inside a store—a first impression that could forever tarnish the brand if it’s not good. “Burberry was about building a relationship,” she says. “But it was always about selling an amazing product that you would have forever. Apple is just a deeper relationship with a much broader constituency. Because it’s everybody.” // apple positioned itself just above everyone else it competes w [having a margin!], but not too far up to be douchy, off-setting

The Myth of Valley DoucheBaggery - John Battelle's Search Blog
But I think our industry culture is moving far faster than the writers at Silicon Valley might wish to believe. I think we’re seeing the rise of a new culture, one that rejects arrogance and the founder worship which breeds it. Inevitable outliers aside, the Valley and technology culture I experience every day in my work at NewCo is one of passion, sweat, earnestness, and good intentions. Sure, we all fuck up. And sure, the press (especially, not surprisingly, the press in New York) has a field day when someone does. But by and large, the teams making companies like Slack, LiveRamp, Medium, Earnest, MetroMile, Lyft, Okta, Pinterest, and hundreds more are damn fine people, and they are dedicating their lives to making something that creates positive change – a product or service that makes the world a better place (even if it’s in a small way). [...] When you’re facing existential threat, our tolerance for douchebaggery in the name of making more money at any cost, ....

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.
