The company also Wednesday forecast revenue in the current quarter that topped analysts estimates, sending shares up as much as 6.6 percent in extended trading.Chief Executive Officer Marc Benioff is benefiting from a multiyear effort to persuade corporations to adopt software delivered over the Internet, or the cloud.During a call with analysts, the company touted new deals with Samsung Electronics Co., Uber Technologies Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. that expanded on existing relationships.Revenue increased 27 percent to $1.92 billion in the fiscal first quarter ended April 30, topping the average estimate of $1.89 billion.Over the last three years -- as successful as the company has always been -- we have put a particular emphasis on the enterprise and a focus on expansion in our international markets, Keith Block, president and chief operating officer, said on a conference call with analysts.Benioff said the company will continue to look for new ways to work with Amazon s cloud services, which provide computing power and storage for customers.The acquisition will help it offer AI capabilities to automate and personalize customer support, marketing and many other business processes.
Privacy vs. personalizationUnlike Google, Facebook, and other tech companies that make money from advertising, Apple doesn t collect your personal data because it doesn t need to.It makes money by selling you hardware and getting you to sign up for monthly subscription services like iCloud storage and Apple Music, among other revenue generators.The company has a trio of so-called privacy czars who vet every decision, even inspecting lines of code that might violate laws or company standards.Siri usually reverts to a web search for questions it doesn t know the answers to, and now I ve come to expect that if I want anything more than a timer set or the weather forecast, I ll have to look it up myself.The assistant is hugely helpful on the fourth-gen Apple TV and in Apple Music, and iOS 9 included a Siri search API for deep-linking.Engineers in Cupertino may be working right now on a Siri reboot to rival Google and Amazon s assistants, and maybe even an Apple version of a voice-activated hub like Google Home or Amazon Echo.
For investors in Taiwan s $841 billion stock market, Tim Cook matters more than Tsai Ing-wen.While the ascension of independence-leaning Tsai to the presidency on Friday has sparked concern relations with China will deteriorate, JPMorgan Asset Management and BlackRock Inc. say the bigger risk is the slowdown in the global smartphone business.Apple reported its first quarterly sales decline in 13 years, with Chief Executive Officer Cook acknowledging on April 26 that -- nine years after the iPhone s game-changing debut -- the market had stopped growing.Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. both reported falling profit last quarter.Investor confidence in Taiwan s stock market reflects "export demand, and by far the dominant export demand factor is electronics and Apple in particular," said Howard Wang, Hong Kong-based head of greater China for JPMorgan Asset Management, which managed $1.7 trillion as of March 31.Pegatron Corp., which assembles iPhones, missed profit expectations and said April sales dived 16 percent.TSMC, one of the largest manufacturers of the application processors that are a mobile device s brains --- cut its 2016 smartphone demand forecast in April.In March, Chinese President Xi Jinping vowed to "resolutely contain Taiwan independence secessionist activities in any form," a warning to Tsai s incoming government.The Communist Party considers the island a province, even though it has been governed separately for more than 66 years, and reserves the right to use force to prevent it from moving toward formal independence."Taiwan having a government that s uninterested in unification with China is nothing new," Chou said, referring to two former presidents who leaned toward independence.She will focus on economic and social issues."
Tesla Motors Inc. has set an unrealistic goal for itself and will probably miss 2018 production forecasts by a whopping 66 percent, according to a report Wednesday by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Should that dissuade you from buying the stock?"This is the sort of wild disconnect that Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk has wrought.By moving up his already-ambitious goal of building 500,000 electric cars in 2020 by a full two years, he's left Wall Street models in disarray.Tesla announced Wednesday that it's selling another $1.4 billion in stock to help fund the company's expansion.Joseph Spak, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, said the capital round was about $100 million less than his forecast, though it comes more than a year sooner than expected.Goldman Sachs joined RBC and Robert Baird in brushing aside the new 2018 goal while simultaneously adjusting their expectations for 2020 to a range that's more consistent with Musk's original target—one that until recently had mostly been considered fantasy.
Networking routers and switches and services don t play as well in a TV commercial as do iPhones shooting 4K video.You could make an argument that the only time Cisco was really cool was back in 2009, when it paid $590 million for Pure Digital, the maker of the then-popular line of Flip Video digital video cameras.And whether it was because a consumer gadget didn t fit in with its traditional networking gear business, or people just didn t buy enough Flips once they really got into shooting video on their iPhones, Cisco shut down Flip, and stopped making its video cameras in 2011.And on Thursday, Cisco s shares rose 3.2 percent to close at $27.57 after the company reported one of its typically solid business quarters.So, in case you missed it…Late Wednesday, Cisco reported fiscal third-quarter earnings of 57 cents a share on $12 billion in sales, while Wall Street analysts had forecast the company to earn 55 cents a share on $11.97 billion.By contrast, sales of routers were off by 5 percent and switching-gear revenue declined by 3 percent.No, it s not the kind of stuff that will have the cool factor of something like a 50-foot-high green wall and a park where you can wander in and contemplate whether you should get the 64-gigabyte or 128GB iPhone 6 Plus.: If Cisco is boring, yet consistent, anything involving John McAfee is going to be like 17 straight rides on Disneyland s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad without being strapped into your seat.It was barely a week ago, that McAfee, founder of McAfee, one of the first big anti-virus software companies, one-time-kinda-but-not-really fugitive from Belize, and current Libertarian Party presidential candidate, was named Chief Executive to MGT Capital Investments.Actually, it was more like McAfee took over the company, as part of his joining MGT was it acquiring his latest venture, anti-spy technology company D-Vasive, and saying it would rename itself John McAfee Global Technologies.So, it should come as no surprise that investing in a John McAfee company would be as wild an experience as McAfee being McAfee.

New developer APIs will make in-app and mobile web integration simpler.In-app: Android Pay is already integrated into a limited number of apps.That could further broaden the wallet s addressable audience, since mobile users tend to spend the majority of their commerce-related shopping time in browsers but complete purchases at a much lower rate than PC users due to friction associated with slower connections and small screens.Loyalty: Android Pay users can add loyalty and gift cards by selecting a deep link via an email, SMS message, or push notification.Google s expansion of Android Pay s use cases could help make Android Pay more competitive while accelerating adoption and pushing users to test the service.Mobile wallets have lagged in adoption because limited in-store and in-app acceptance has hindered habit formation among potential wallet users.But as loyalty programs are integrated and more consumers rely on their mobile wallets for other features like in-app payments, adoption and usage will surge over the next few years.Evan Bakker, research analyst for BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled a detailed report on mobile payments that forecasts the growth of in-store mobile payments in the U.S., analyzes the performance of major mobile wallets like Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay, and addresses the barriers holding mobile payments back as well as the benefits that will propel adoption.Here are some key takeaways from the report:In our latest US in-store mobile payments forecast, we find that volume will reach $75 billion this year.Other potential add-ons, like in-app, in-browser, and P2P payments, will also start fueling adoption.
The lack of transparency effects enhances clarity, and tab-based access to app sections improves on the swipe-happy iPhone navigation.At the foot of the screen, the tab bar enables you to quickly jump to today s forecast, predictions for the coming week, a satellite rainfall/temperature globe map that you can spin with a finger, alerts, and the means to report local weather to help improve subsequent forecasts .Needless to say, people are annoyed about the discrepancy and making lots of noise about what the developer is calling a bit of an experiment .For our money, we reckon it s worth looking at the bigger picture.Ultimately, the users of any platform must decide whether they re going to support developers by paying for nice things, or put up with intrusive ads.Liked that?
