5 Texas neighborhoods wealthy homebuyers are flocking to 2021/04/07 15:32:42 Business Insider
Summary List Placement In the last decade, Texas has become a magnet for entrepreneurs and corporations enticed by the state's business-friendly practices and lack of income tax. Since the pandemic, this influx has ramped up even more: Elon Musk , Oracle Corporation , and Hewlett Packard are just a handful of the entities who have relocated to Texas in the last year, driving homebuyer demand from out-of-state residents to an all-time high. The recent storms throughout the state don't appear to have impacted interest, either. However, they did likely deplete already low inventory: According to Realtor.com 's analysis, the total number of homes for sale in the country in February was down by 48.6% year over year . "From a real estate perspective, Texas has never been more booming," George Ratiu, a senior economist with Realtor.com, told Insider. "It's a trend that's been brewing for the last five years, but COVID-19 accelerated it to full speed." Texas has plenty going for it as a place to live: In addition to the tax benefits, it's affordable with a good quality of life, according to Ratiu.
Why Google's victory over Oracle at the Supreme Court is a landmark for the future of software 2021/04/06 22:30:44 Business Insider
Summary List Placement On Monday, the US Supreme Court overturned a lower court, ending a decade-long legal battle by handing Google a landmark victory in its copyright fight with Oracle — and much of Silicon Valley breathed a sigh of relief . "Thank you to the Supreme Court for saving all modern computing from an onslaught of copyright trolls," former Facebook security chief and current Stanford professor Alex Stamos said on Twitter. Indeed, judging by the reactions, there's a prevailing sense that Google's win means the tech industry has dodged a bullet. Over the years that this case has dragged out, experts and insiders have held that a win for Oracle would have completely shaken up the tech industry, and not for the better. "A ruling in Oracle's favor would have opened the door for copyright trolls much like we've seen happen in the realm of software patents," David Mooter, a senior analyst at Forrester, told Insider. "That would have given more power to big tech companies to sue their competition out of business." As always, the devil is in the details, but the basics of the case: In 2010, Oracle bought a now-defunct company called Sun Microsystems, including the rights to Java, a popular platform for app development.

Elon Musk decries Austin's housing shortage and sky-high home prices. Peek inside the bonkers real-estate scene in the city Musk predicts will be the US's 'biggest boomtown.' 2021/04/06 15:05:13 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Editor's note: This story was updated on April 6 with Elon Musk's comments about Austin's housing shortage. The country crooner George Strait once sang, "All my exes live in Texas." Odds are yours probably do too. From 2010 to 2019 , the population of Texas grew by about 3.8 million residents, Insider previously reported . Now 29 million residents call the Lone Star State home — more than the entire population of Australia. Within Texas, the capital of Austin has been the center of interest for relocating Americans for most of the past decade. In the past 10 years, the Austin area had a net migration of 355,902 residents — a whopping 20.7% of its 2010 population of about 1.7 million. In 2020, Austin's lure has proved stronger than ever, as the coronavirus pandemic's normalization of remote work — coupled with the influx of businesses that have sought cheaper office space outside major coastal cities — boosted already high demand. Austin's real-estate scene has become so hot, in fact, that now Elon Musk is pleading for more housing to be built as his companies look to hire hundreds of people in Texas.

Insiders are buzzing that PR software giant Cision might spin off PR Newswire 2021/03/19 18:15:46 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Chatter is heating up among industry insiders about a potential spinoff by PR software giant Cision of its press release distributor PR Newswire. Two industry leaders said they've heard of the talks separately, though it couldn't be determined if a formal process is in place and if Cision has engaged buyers. Spinoff talk has been around a while. Private equity firm Platinum Equity bought Cision in 2019, and a longtime advisor to Cision said the spinout "was always part of Platinum's core thesis to potentially unlock value." After the acquisition, Platinum looked at all parts of Cision's business as having potential to be spun off, two people with direct knowledge said. One of those people said Platinum thought PR Newswire would do better on its own because it relies on one-off transactions, while Cision's other software services, like social listening and measurement tools, are subscription-based. "If we're going to be a true software business, let's get rid of distribution and focus on analytics and monitoring," the second person said, of Platinum's thinking.
