services: apple ventures into news, gaming, and finance

As well as lifting the lid on a new television subscription service, staring the likes of Oprah and Jennifer Aniston, Apple used its March keynote to announce an array of subscription products, like a premium news service and a cross-platform gaming product. Today, we take a closer look at the new services and consider Apple’s changing strategy for revenue growth. NEXT-LEVEL HARDWARE ON THE DOWNLOW Before Tim Cook and Co hit the stage at the Steve Jobs Theater on Monday (March 25), the company surprised the world by introducing a bunch of new hardware throughout the week prior on the Apple.com store. Apple typically uses its March Special Event to showcase new hardware, like iPads and HomePods, but this year the firm wanted to keep the stage clear for its services-centric event,…

digital scrapbooking site pinterest files for ipo

Pinterest is pinning its future on Wall Street, with the digital scrapbooking site last Friday filing for an initial public offering of stock. It follows a similar filing with securities regulators earlier this month by ride-hailing company Lyft in what is shaping up to be a busy season for technology IPOs. Also expected to sell stock to the public in the coming weeks: Lyft rival Uber and messaging app Slack. Pinterest said in its filing that it intends to list itself on the New York Stock Exchange using the ticker symbol “PINS.”The company hasn’t yet said how many shares it’s selling in the IPO or how much money it intends to raise. The San Francisco-based company had revenue of $756 million last year, a 60 percent bump from 2017. It had a loss…

facebook extends ban on hate speech to ‘white nationalists’

Facebook is extending its ban on hate speech to prohibit the promotion and support of white nationalism and white separatism. The company previously allowed such material even though it has long banned white supremacists. The social network said that it didn’t apply the ban previously to expressions of white nationalism because it linked such expressions with broader concepts of nationalism and separatism — such as American pride or Basque separatism (which are still allowed). But civil rights groups and academics called this view “misguided” and have long pressured the company to change its stance. Facebook said it concluded after months of “conversations” with them that white nationalism and separatism cannot be meaningfully separated from white supremacy and organized hate groups. Critics have “raised these issues to the highest levels at Facebook (and held) a…

apple throws the cover off apple tv+... well, sort of

STILL MUCH TO BE LEARNED ABOUT NEW STREAMING SERVICE Apple’s latest big media event on Monday was exciting for more than a few reasons. Of course, the host of stars who took the stage in Cupertino provided plenty of cause for fuss, but much more vital was the justification for their presence. Among the various other major services announcements, was the news that the tech giant of all tech giants has now finally shown its hand in the streaming game – albeit, while still leaving many crucial questions unanswered. True, we’ve long been accustomed to a high level of secretiveness from Apple, but not necessarily so much in the process of them actually unveiling their products and services. So, what do we now know about Apple’s newly unveiled video subscription service, set…

apple vs. netflix: why turf wars are flaring in big tech

Apple’s ambitious leap into streaming video illustrates an escalating trend: Tech’s biggest companies, faced with limits to their growth, are encroaching on each other’s turf. Apple is taking on Netflix by launching a subscription TV service with its own original shows. Facebook is edging into Amazon’s e-commerce sphere by enabling users to make purchases within Instagram. Google, which has already challenged Amazon and Microsoft in cloud computing, is launching an online game service that could undercut the lucrative game-console business at Microsoft and Sony. Apple, which is also launching a gaming service and introducing its own credit card , may be veering the most outside its comfort zone, technology industry analyst Rob Enderle said. “This is an awful lot of breadth really quickly for a company that hasn’t been known for being…

apple highlights privacy in new services in jab at rivals

Apple says its services respect your digital boundaries — and it wants you to know it. The company took several opportunities Monday to emphasize user privacy — and indirectly take a jab at rivals — at its splashy, celebrity-laden event in Cupertino, California. Apple announced a new streaming TV service, a paid subscription level for its news app, a video game service and an Apple-branded credit card, as it tries to push its services businesses to make up for a decline in sales of the iPhone. The new services will pit Apple against the likes of Google and Facebook in news, and Amazon and Netflix in streaming video. But unlike many of its competitors, Apple said it won’t use your news preferences and spending history to sell advertising. Facebook, Google and other tech companies…
