Facebook Tumbles After Daily Users Miss, Zuck Warns "Users Spending Less Time" On Site

I'd be interested to know if competitors like #Google have followed suit in banning #bitcoin ads. $FB $GOOGL $BITCOMP

Should Alphabet Split Up Into Four?
Henry L. Morgan 2/5/2018 4:35:36 PM

You would think that with 1.5 BILLION monthy users that YouTube has, including many paying subscribers, that there don't utilize them to help crowd-police the site, similar to Wikipedia. That coupled with #Google's own expertise in technology, it is shocking to me that Google hasn't found a better way to keep YouTube safe.

Should Alphabet Split Up Into Four?
Carol Klein 2/5/2018 4:28:53 PM

#Google is a Wall Street darling so I only expect it to go up and up. But yes, #YouTube is a problem. It has so much potential but they need to do much more to police and protect the site. And they are failing miserably at the job. YouTube truly has become too big to handle.

Komodo OpenLab: The Startup Giving Independence To The Disabled

Sounds like an interesting product. But can you elaborate on how this differentiates from the advancements in voice recognition that companies like #Google, #Amazon and #Apple are making? Hard to see how you can compete with them. $GOOGL $AMZN $AAPL

Drones Vs. Balloons
Craig Newman 1/20/2018 8:30:05 PM

But can they even afford smart-phones to use the internet? Plus, the cheapest in-app purchase I've ever seen is 99 cents. Practically free for Americans, but not for people living up $2.50 per day. I still don't see how these companies can make money off this. Especially #Airbus. At least #Google and #Facebook can make some profits on increased advertising. Please enlighten me.


Drones Vs. Balloons
Alpha Stockman 1/19/2018 1:42:56 PM

Fascinating. #Zuckerberg has been very vocal about bringing internet to the world, so I was aware of their efforts, but I had no idea there was a literal race between #Facebook, #Google, and #Airbus to connect underdeveloped countries to the web. This will open countless doors for industry, innovation, education, and more.

But I'm not clear on whether these companies are pursuing this for altruistic reasons or just their bottom line. Do they hope to simply make more ad revenue or perhaps sell services to these regions (who have limited liquid cash to spend), or do they expect to make money on the drones/balloons themselves by selling the technology to those countries.

I'd love some elaboration on the "who will foot the bill" section.

Roku, Next Big Tech Flop Or Opportunity?
Ayelet Wolf 1/18/2018 11:36:31 AM

Why is #Roku any better than #Google's Chromecast or #Amazon Fire TV Stick? I've never used Roku but the I have the other two. The Fire TV Stick was far superior in my opinion, with it's dedicated voice remote. Especially if you are deeply integrated into the Amazon Echo system.

But more recently Google seems to be winning out by having it's technology already integrated into far more TV sets. Why do you think Roku will win out in the end?


What Makes Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google So Special

There is something magical about #Apple, #Amazon, #Facebook and #Google. Did the author provide any insight into any other companies? $AAPL $AMZN $FB $GOOGL

Uber Reports Massive $1.5 Billion 3Q Loss As Two Investors Drop Out Of New Financing Round
Leslie Miriam 11/30/2017 6:03:06 PM

The cab lobby is powerful in Israel. But I suspect this had more to do with #Waze - the Israeli GPS app purchased by #Google ($GOOGL). Waze recently started a car sharing aspect to their app and #Uber would have competed greatly with this.

Technical Outlook On Google
Karen Klein 10/9/2017 8:43:59 PM

Moon Kil Woong, while I almost always agree with your insight and pearls of wisdom, in this instance I must disagree. What made #Google the titan it is today is that it gives it's employees the freedom and resources to explore and R&D what ever intrigues them. Who knows what future innovations and blockbuster products will come out of these efforts.

You yourself cite android and phone technology as a reason to invest in Google. Yet if Google had followed the same logic you recommended 10 years ago, they'd still be nothing more than a search engine. $GOOGL

Alphabet is a ridiculous name. It will always be plain ol' #Google to me!

Technical Outlook On Google
Moon Kil Woong 10/4/2017 11:53:31 PM

#Google doesn't have a lot of drivers to get itself out of the range it is in, although over time if their earnings grow they will move up on value versus their peers. I think changing their name to Alphabet was a dumb move although hopefully over time the founders will lose more control over Google and the money losing playground will disappear which will be good for shareholders. I'd buy Google if all it did was search, their phone technology, and android.

I remember I once said the same thing about an upstart. That upstart was named #Google! I foolishly bet my money on #Yahoo instead. $GLNNF $GOOGL $YHOO

Twitter Plunges After US Monthly Users Drop; Ad Revenues Tumble

Agree. Especially with the increased use of ad blockers and I hear #Google Chrome will soon block ads for all users by default!

Twitter Plunges After US Monthly Users Drop; Ad Revenues Tumble
Moon Kil Woong 7/27/2017 1:31:32 PM

It is hard monetizing this, however with dropping active users is going to make it even harder. Sadly #Google and #Facebook will make it hard for any major new Internet media to generate ad revenue. Be careful picking start ups in this space. $TWTR $FB $GOOGL

Snap Out Of It: GoPro Or Go Home
Doug Morris 3/7/2017 9:10:00 PM

Catchy headline. I think you are right that history will repeat itself here. But what's to stop a company like #Google or #Amazon getting into this space? Maybe even #Facebook?
