Representatives for Apple and Microsoft will be participating in a meeting with the Carin Alliance that's focused on making it easier for patients to access and share their medical information, reports CNBC .

Apple has a new biggest bull on Wall Street. Here's why he thinks the company will reach a $2 trillion market value. 2020/01/24 14:41:43 Business Insider
Apple has a new Wall Street-high price target of $400 per share from Wedbush analyst Dan Ives.

The company joins Microsoft , Alphabet , and Saudi Aramco as the only public companies with valuations greater than $1 trillion, and would become the first US firm to hit the $2 trillion level if Ives' prediction holds true.

Microsoft’s Carbon-Negative Gambit 2020/01/24 11:10:36 Green Technology
Microsoft is setting a new standard for corporate climate targets. The technology company promised to remove all of the carbon that it’s ever put in the atmosphere -- going back to when it was founded in an Albuquerque garage in 1975. That includes $1 billion in carbon removal technologies and methods. Can it pull off such an ambitious plan? And will it force other corporates to follow? We'll discuss on this week's episode of The Energy Gang . Then, we'll look at a landmark climate case. Twenty-one young people who sued the federal government for the right to live in a stable climate prevailed and prevailed and prevailed…until they lost. A judge agreed with their case, but said the courts weren’t the place to remedy climate change. What does it mean for future litigation? Plus, we have a new member of the gang we’re going to meet: Ingrid Lobet, our senior editor. Make sure to follow her on Twitter .
