Sometimes, Netflix tweets an announcement and people go crazy. (Case in point.) Other times, Netflix makes enormous changes, and people don't really notice. Take the huge change that Netflix apparently made recently that could save it tens or hundreds of millions of dollars, but that could also make things less convenient for new subscribers in the process. It's a bold move, maybe risky -- but if it works, it's brilliant. Here's the explanation, the giant financial incentive, and the reason why it's always so fun and instructive to watch how Netflix rolls things out.The Apple taxQuick background: A huge number of Netflix subscribers actually subscribe to Netflix via iTunes. In fact, as I write this, Netflix has the #3 highest grossing app for iPhone.For most companies that would be grea

Nearly two decades ago, Priceline.com was the poster child of the U.S. internet stock frenzy before the bursting of the dot-com bubble erased most of its market value. Its comeback has been spectacular, even if both its name and the name-your-own-price business model it pioneered are all but gone. Now called Booking Holdings Inc., it is once again one of America’s most valuable technology companies. And it is making a large bet on another frothy market: China’s crowded online travel space. ...

Despite attempts by the Trump administration to bury it, a scientific report released by several U.S. federal agencies is receiving a lot of attention. This report presents a grim picture of the future of health, economic and environmental conditions in the United States without significant action on global warming.This news supports recent irrefutable scientific evidence presented by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) showing that the planet is in the midst of unprecedented human-caused environmental damage. Within the next twelve years, in the absence of drastic measures, the planet faces an alarming acceleration of climate change impacts including the extinction of several plant and animal species, intensifying air pollution, increased extreme weather...

This doesn't necessarily address the problem that users tend to wave away warnings and notifications if they're stopping them from using the platform, but it's possible this requirement would simplify notifications so you could see at a glance if the kind of data collection proposed is in line with the benefit you get in return.Secondly, users would get further controls over the collection of their data. When you first use an app or sign up for a service, all the options that allow your data to be collected would be set to "off", and it would be up to you to turn on the ones you want. These settings would need to explain the consequences of giving consent, and be "current and specific".LoadingThe preliminary recommendations also include measures to address tech giants' market power, inc...

The $90M Women’s Walkout At Google: Is Real Change Coming?

Google's headquarters inMountain View, California, USA  How much does sexual harassment cost? If you are Google, it may cost up to $90 million per case. Last week the New York Times reported that a female employee accused Andy Rubin, the inventor of the Android and former Google employee, of allegedly forcing her to perform a sexual act at a hotel in 2013. According to the reporting, the company investigated and found the claim credible enough to let him go in 2014. But not without toasting his achievements and sending him off with a $90 million exit package. Whether spurred on by the gigantic price tag or the tech giant's silent acceptance of alleged sexual misconduct, now the women of Google are ready to walk. As first reported by Buzzfeed, more than
Nonstop change is a certainty for ecommerce

Nonstop change is a certainty for ecommerce

Zoomd
The internet continues to disrupt the selling of products and services. The traditional ecommerce strategy of creating a single site and trying to market to the entire internet from that site is a shrinking option. Most small businesses do not have the budget to compete with ecommerce giants, and thus their market share is diminishing. Increasingly, ecommerce works better with a layered approach. At one end there is the consumer. At the other end is the business, and in the middle is a third-party platform. Amazon and eBay are classic platforms. They say to the consumers, more or less, “Whatever you want to buy you can find it here. It is good value and safe to purchase.” Retailers have to simply list their products and Amazon, and eBay will do the hard work of gettin
