Apple''s Privacy Features Have Cost Social Media Companies Nearly $10 Billion in Revenue 2021/11/01 11:42:13 Mac Rumors
As a result of its privacy features, Apple has cost social media companies including Meta, formerly known as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and YouTube, nearly $10 billion in revenue in the second half of 2021, according to an investigation by the Financial Times . The Financial Times found that most users have opted out of tracking using Apple''s App Tracking Transparency (ATT) framework, a requirement that forces developers to ask users if they wish to be tracked across other apps and websites. Data in the report from Lotame, a third-party company, suggests that Meta, YouTube, Twitter, and Snap lost $9.85 billion in revenue in the third and fourth quarters of 2021, with Snapchat and Facebook being the most impacted. Lotame, an advertising technology company whose clients include The Weather Company and McClatchy, estimated that the four tech platforms lost 12 percent of revenue in the third and fourth quarters, or $9.85bn. Snap fared the worst as a percentage of its business because of its focus on smartphones, while Facebook lost the most in absolute terms because of its size.

Key Cryptocurrency Developments And Updates From JPMorgan 2021/08/01 22:30:00 Zero Hedge
Key Cryptocurrency Developments And Updates From JPMorgan All those who have followed the writings of JPMorgan''s Nick Panagirtzoglou and Josh Younger, for whom no bitcoin bashing opportunity was too small or too insigificant (we too are patiently waiting for Panagirtzoglou to observe which way bitcoin''s momentum has been moving in recent weeks following the cryptocurrency''s longest winning streak since 2015, a fact he has oddly failed to discuss), may be surprised to learn recently the bank quietly launched a report for its clients looking at all the top crypto developments. So for those tired of listening to JPM''s conflicted musing as it tries to create a lower entry point for its prop traders, here is nothing but facts from the Crypto Weekly report at the world''s largest bank: Bitcoin, Ether, Dogecoin, and other major cryptocurrencies rose sharply during the week after the market took cues from a recent job posting by Amazon seeking to hire a Digital Currency and Blockchain Product Lead.

Illinois Unconcerned As Communication And ''Science'' Behind COVID Policy Slip Toward Chaos 2021/08/01 20:20:00 Zero Hedge
Illinois Unconcerned As Communication And ''Science'' Behind COVID Policy Slip Toward Chaos By Mark Glennon of Wirepoints The Illinois Department of Public health took no time at all deciding last week to say it fully aligns with new masking guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control, including universal masking in schools, regardless of vaccination status. IDHPs announcement came only hours after the CDC announcement on Tuesday. If you think that means the science behind the changes must be settled or clear, you havent been paying attention. Contradictions, confusion and unanswered questions from national health experts and media followed the CDC announcement, none of which is apparently of concern to IDPH. This time, the criticism outside of Illinois isnt coming just from the right. Sources ordinarily friendly to the Biden Administration and national public health officials had already started to call them out on dishonesty. Left-leaning Slate earlier in the week detailed four instances of what it thought at best have been white lies coming out of the federal government.
