Cooperation with China has become a major point of criticism for Silicon Valley companies, most notably Google, which was excoriated by both Democrats and Republicans for trying to build a censored search engine called “Project Dragonfly,” for the Chinese market last year. But there’s another tech company that has far deeper ties to China — Microsoft. It’s easy to ignore Microsoft, sometimes seen as a has-been company, often portrayed as a company that was exciting in the 1990s, but now plays second fiddle to the Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe at Google, Facebook, and Apple.That portrayal is a mistake. By a long shot, Microsoft Windows is still the market-dominant operating system worldwide. It owns Skype, LinkedIn, and Xbox. Through Microsoft Azure, it owns a sizeable chunk of the cloud computing market, giving it influence over the flow of online information. And it is still the world’s most valuable company. It also has taken steps into … [Read more...] about Bokhari: Microsoft Has A Massive China Problem

Tesla unveiled its long-awaited pickup on Thursday, a futuristic "Cybertruck" at a Sci-Fi-style event with gimmicks and a cheering crowd. Not everything went to plan. During an elaborate demonstration of the strength of the car's new unbreakable glass, CEO Elon Musk asked one of the people onstage to try to break its windows. They shattered. "Maybe that was a little too hard," he said, punctuating his reaction with an expletive. It was an awkward, off-script moment in an already over-the-top spectacle of machismo, strength and bold disruption, aimed at generating hype for a product that seemed like a real-life manifestation of something in the vein of a Batmobile. The new truck marks the electric automaker's initial foray into a lucrative market dominated by America's best-selling vehicle, the Ford F-series truck. It's a bold push for the Silicon Valley firm and its CEO, who are hoping the to mobilize the same consumers that flock to heavy-duty, 4x4 work vehicles around a futuristic … [Read more...] about America loves pickup trucks. Can Elon Musk win drivers over with a Tesla ‘Cybertruck’?
GAITHERSBURG, Md. - Abdul Mannan was perched on a stool, scrolling through his phone, on a recent afternoon at Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He was two hours into his shift at a jewelry kiosk and had yet to exchange words with a single customer. There was a time, he says, when business was brisk, and the shopping center teemed with shoppers. But that was before the J.C. Penney at the end of the corridor closed this summer. The Lord & Taylor went dark a few weeks later, and soon Sears will be gone, too. "Some days, we don't sell anything," Mannan, 28, said. "Not one penny. You see the mall? It's empty." Lakeforest's slow decline mirrors the all-too familiar narrative of the American mall, particularly the mid-tier cookie cutters that proliferated in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. In their heyday, they were monuments to consumerism that doubled as cultural touchstone, inspiring films like "Mallrats" and board games like Mall Madness. But in the past decade, as shopping … [Read more...] about Malls are dying. Thriving ones are spending millions to reinvent themselves.
