Big tech responds to antitrust report

The major tech platforms push back against the House antitrust report, Google Assistant gets a “guest” mode and we interview a freshly minted Nobel laureate. This is your Daily Crunch for October 7, 2020.

The big story: Big tech responds to antitrust report

The House Judiciary Committee released its tech antitrust report late yesterday, concluding that the big tech platforms should face additional regulation. Recommendations include creating new separations to prevent dominant platforms from operating in adjacent lines of business, new requirements for interoperability and data portability and increased restrictions on mergers and acquisitions.

For now, these are just recommendations — and they weren’t endorsed by the committee’s Republican minority. But they have prompted forceful responses from four of the companies targeted by the report: Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google.

Amazon, for example, dismissed the committee’s views as “fringe notions” and “regulatory spitballing,” while Apple said it “vehemently” disagrees with

Big Tech stocks are buys on any negative antitrust news, Jim Cramer says

Big Tech stocks barely flinched one day after members of Congress recommended parts of their underlying companies be broken up, but investors should be ready to buy if the stocks dip in the future, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday.

“The time these Big Tech stocks get hit by some bad headlines from the House Judiciary Committee is the time you have to buy them,” the “Mad Money” host said. “Regardless of who wins the White House next month, they’re not gonna roll back 40 years of antitrust.”

The comments come on the heels of a Democratic congressional staff report out Tuesday that called for updates to the nation’s antitrust laws and to shake up operations of the largest U.S. technology corporations. The report charges Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet subsidiary Google with having monopoly power.

Facebook was the only one of the three stocks to fall in Wednesday’s session, slipping

Investor Urges Disney To Spend On Streaming, Not Dividends

Activist investor Daniel Loeb on Wednesday urged Walt Disney Co. to skip paying an annual dividend and instead pour the $3 billion into hits for its streaming television service.

Loeb, founder of Third Point hedge fund, made his pitch in a letter to Disney chief executive Bob Chapek and the board of directors.

Loeb reasoned that skipping a few dollars per share in dividends, the entertainment giant could use the money to more than double its budget for content at Disney+ streaming service.

“Disney has built one of the largest streaming platforms in the world, already within the original 5-year Disney+ subscriber target range of 60-90 million,” Loeb said in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by AFP.

“To further capitalize on this transformational opportunity, we believe the company should permanently suspend its $3 billion annual dividend and redirect this capital entirely into content production and acquisition for

Arm exec says ‘firewalls’ will protect customer info after Nvidia deal

By Stephen Nellis

(Reuters) – If Nvidia Corp <NVDA.O> buys Arm Ltd from SoftBank Group Corp <9984.T>, Arm will keep “firewalls” in place to ensure the data center chip company does not access confidential information from Arm’s customers or get early access to Arm’s products, a top Arm executive told Reuters on Tuesday.

The $40 billion deal announced last month would reshape the global semiconductor sector because Arm has long acted as a neutral player, supplying intellectual property to Apple Inc <AAPL.O>, Qualcomm Inc <QCOM.O> and many others that goes into chips for most of the world’s smart phones and many other kinds of chips.

Nvidia has displaced Intel Corp <INTC.O> as the biggest U.S. chip company by market capitalization on the strength of its data center chips for artificial intelligence. It has said it will keep Arm’s business model of openly licensing the company’s technology throughout the chip industry.

NK Economy reported Wednesday the second issue of Volume 66 of
an academic journal of geo-environmental studies from the university included a paper about “indexing for constructing a large-scale panorama image database management system.”
