Out of every hundred dollars spent on digital advertising in Australia, $47 goes to Google and $21 goes to Facebook, leaving just $32 for every other social media site, search engine and news site to compete over. And when Australians do an online search, 94 per cent of the time it's via Google; likewise, of those Australians who have a social media account, some 95 per cent use Facebook. The statistics illustrate the dominance of the two platforms in advertising and media and, indeed, in the daily lives of Australians — and have now prompted Australia's competition regulator to launch a world-first attempt to curb its powers. In a report last week, the Australian Consumer & Competition Commission said we are "at a critical point in considering the impact of digital platforms

Bicycles in the Google logo colours outside the headquarters of US technology company Google in Mountain View, California. Photo: PA Is big tech too big? In the past year, interest has grown in the idea that the giants of Silicon Valley have morphed into monopolies. Tim Wu of Columbia Law School argues they should be broken up: Facebook should relinquish Instagram and WhatsApp; Google should give up YouTube and DoubleClick; Amazon should spin off Amazon Web Services. Such arguments have ceased to be the preserve of progressives. Even President Donald Trump is said to have “wondered aloud if there may be any way to go after Amazon with antitrust or competition law.” We’ll hear a lot more about breaking up big tech in 2019. However, there are significant problems with anti-trust law that

HyreCar allows people to rent out their idle vehicles to people who want to drive for companies such as Lyft or Uber.HyreCar Inc. A few years ago Joe Furnari found himself with a car he barely used, but was stuck with a big insurance bill. Through a Google search he discovered a new Los Angeles-based company called HyreCar that would rent out his car to Uber, Lyft, or other ride-share drivers in need of a vehicle. Joe Furnari, CEO of HyreCar Inc., a Los Angeles-based carsharing company.HyreCar Inc. “As I’m handing off the keys to the driver, and (a HyreCar founder) comes running up to me,” Furnari related in an interview. “He says to me Joe, Joe, this is great.

Google Photos will no longer let you upload unsupported video formats and take advantage of the free unlimited storage it offers, the company announced in a change to its support site earlier this week, as first spotted by Android Police. It’s a small change that won’t affect most users. Google Photos already supports the following video formats: .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and .mkv files, This leaves some RAW and VOB files as the most popular formats Google Photos doesn’t support. So if you use excluded formats, get ready to watch your storage more closely or pay a bit extra for Google One. I finally wised up and uploaded my photo library to Google Photos a few weeks ago, and so far, it’s been wonderful. I’m p

Trends that will shape India’s ecommerce in 2020

India’s ecommerce sector has seen a hockey stick growth in the past few years. From the pioneering days of IndiaPlaza and Flipkart, which had to create the ecosystem from the ground up, to Walmart’s acquisition of Flipkart at a heady $16 billion valuation, India as a market has evolved tremendously. Currently, the number of Indians with access to Internet is 481 million, an increase of 11.34% from 2016 as per Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI). The number of online shoppers is estimated to be about 120 million as per an ASSOCHAM-Resurgent study; the number of credit card holders is 29.8 million as per RBI numbers. All of these parameters are still growing, albeit at a lower percentage given the higher base. The other building blocks of fulfillment centres, last-mile delive

Currently, 47 states allow some form of CBD sales. The 2018 Farm Bill, which Congress passed this week, allows states to decide if CBD products made from hemp can be sold in their jurisdiction. However, it doesn't protect the products from the Food and Drug Administration, which can penalize companies for making inaccurate health claims. "We avoid talking about anything too specific about what the product will do," said Cary Smith, senior vice president at agency North 6th Agency. "If you come from an educational standpoint, you skew towards less restrictions, and have a bit of a larger organic reach." With so much uncertainty in the market, Google a...

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, President Donald Trump announced on December 8 that his Chief of Staff John Kelly is set to leave the post by the end of the year. Numerous Republican officials were reportedly considered for the job. Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Nick Ayers, United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, economic adviser Larry Kudlow, North Carolina Republican Congressman Mark Meadows, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and former deputy campaign manager David Bossie have all reportedly turned the president down. Jared Kushner, Trump’s White House Adviser and son-in-law, allegedly wanted the job as well. In a December 14 Twitter post, however, Trump pushed back against media allega
