The tech industry has cut a Google’s worth of jobs in the past 12 months
bigger companies, more profitable products, with less people. // “It would be wrong to assume that increased job cuts are a sign of weakness in the tech sector,” Challenger, Gray & Christmas CEO John Challenger said in a statement. “The simple fact is that the industry is going through a transformation and companies either have to shift their focus or risk extinction. We will always need technology, but how we interact with it, as well as where and when we interact with it, are changing rapidly.” //&! http://recode.net/2016/04/19/intel-chipmaker-mobile-earnings-restructuring/ - Intel missed the mobile revolution. Now it faces its day of reckoning.

Ways to think about cars — Benedict Evans
PREPARING FOR THE IMPACT OF DRIVERLESS CARS - http://www.newgeography.com/content/005024-preparing-impact-driverless-cars --- "By combining ride sharing with car sharing—particularly in a city such as New York—MIT research has shown that it would be possible to take every passenger to his or her destination at the time they need to be there, with 80 percent fewer cars. Clearing the roads of four out of five cars has momentous consequences for cities, by measures such as environment, traffic, efficiency, and even parking.

Apple's vice-president Jeff Williams said earlier in the year that the car is the "ultimate mobile device" - a space you'd assume Apple would be desperate to be in. The question is the extent of what they are building. Are they, as some have said, intending on creating an entire Apple-made car? Or are they perhaps content with providing sophisticated software for already-established car makers to use in their vehicles? Car makers are understandably keeping a close eye on things. Fiat boss Sergio Marchionne told the BBC earlier this year that Apple's pursuit of the car market would be highly disruptive.
