Amazon was denied a $10bn US defence contract because of “escalating and overt pressure” from President Donald Trump designed to hurt the company’s chief executive, Jeff Bezos, the company claimed in a lawsuit. The tension between the two men, which stems from Mr Trump’s hostility towards the Bezos-owned Washington Post, took on a legal dimension with a court filing in which Amazon claimed the president improperly leaned on officials at the Department of Defense. The department later awarded the so-called Jedi contract to a rival bid from Microsoft.
GitHub, the world’s biggest software development platform, is looking to open a subsidiary in China, as the Chinese government tries to protect its access to key technology from further US sanctions. Erica Brescia, GitHub’s chief operating officer, said in an interview with the Financial Times that Beijing was “very encouraging” of the company’s plans to expand in China. GitHub, which was bought for $7.5bn last year by Microsoft, hosts and manages software development for private companies and is the biggest host of open-source software projects that anyone can take part in.
Beijing has ordered all government offices and public institutions to remove foreign computer equipment and software within three years, in a potential blow to the likes of HP, Dell and Microsoft. The directive is the first publicly known instruction with specific targets given to Chinese buyers to switch to domestic technology vendors, and echoes efforts by the Trump administration to curb the use of Chinese technology in the US and its allies. The move is part of a broader campaign to increase China’s reliance on home-made technologies, and is likely to fuel concerns of “decoupling”, with supply chains between the US and China being severed.
"The Crown" has returned to Netflix with a new cast — Olivia Colman as a middle-aged Queen Elizabeth, Tobias Menzies as her husband Prince Philip and Helena Bonham Carter as her sister Princess Margaret. Loyal listeners of the Original Content podcast may recall that we reviewed the show's first two seasons last year. As we explain in our latest episode, "The Crown" is both changed and unchanged in its third season.
Facebook is selling Oculus Medium -- a 3D virtual reality sculpting tool for creatives -- to Adobe. The team was an expensive effort for Oculus and its sale signifies a broader rethinking within Facebook in what virtual reality projects they tackle in-house. It's clear that Oculus pumped an awful lot of money into Medium over the years and the sale probably isn't great for the Oculus Medium team, if only because there is now a proper price tag attached to the effort that will be looming for the fairly niche software.
Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn, Jerry Jones and Sam Zell are just a few of the bargain-hunters flocking to the energy industry — the worst-performing sector of 2019. The miserable year caps a grim decade, which has brought the oil and gas sector’s weighting in the S&P 500’s market capitalisation to a record-low 4 per cent. That is down dramatically from the 13 per cent weighting of 2008, when oil was trading above $140 a barrel and the world was much less determined to wean itself off fossil fuels. In 2011 the energy sector was trading at about the same level as the broader market, as a multiple of book value.
An executive with Netflix says the streaming giant has boosted its original content exponentially over the last several years and that will mean more action for its production hub in New Mexico, where state officials have been busy trying to woo more big partners in the industry. Nick Maniatis, who ran the state's film office before going to work for Netflix, spoke to a group of hundreds of business leaders and elected officials who were gathered Thursday in Albuquerque.
