The Nomad Base Station Pro can wirelessly charge 2 phones and a pair of AirPods at the same time, but at $230, it's too expensive to recommend 2020/09/23 15:33:00 Business Insider
Summary List Placement The Nomad Base Station Pro is a large Qi wireless charging pad with space for three devices. Thanks to FreePower technology by Aira, this charger doesn't require perfect placement, so you can put your devices anywhere on the pad and they'll charge right up. The wireless charger has an aluminum chassis and a luxurious leather finish that looks and feels great. However, at $229.95, the Nomad Base Station Pro is too expensive to recommend to most people. You can read our guide to the best wireless chargers for some alternative picks, most of which cost less than $50. Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky While there are many good wireless chargers on the market now, the underlying technology still has room for improvement. Multi-coil designs have reduced the need for precision placement, but there's still a sweet spot you need to hit if you want your phone to charge up properly. With FreePower technology from Aira inside, Nomad's new Base Station Pro does away with the need for that careful positioning.
Chamath Palihapitiya thinks Trump probably targeted TikTok because of a prank its users played on his Tulsa campaign rally (ORCL) 2020/09/23 15:20:45 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Chamath Palihapitiya says there's good reason for the US to play hardball with TikTok. But he questions President Donald Trump's motivation. On a September 18 episode of his podcast, "All-In," Palihapitiya said, "I think that the Trump administration probably is doing this, and Donald Trump, specifically, does this more as a demonstration of power and American exceptionalism, which I'm not sure is the right reason to do it." Since then, Oracle and Walmart have agreed to buy a minority stake in the app to allow it to keep operating in the United States. Trump at first said he backed the deal, but is now threatening to withdraw his support as Beijing does the same over confusion as to who would really own and control the app once the deal goes through. Palihapitiya, the famed tech investor, said that he generally supports going toe-to-toe with China because he believes China has made it too difficult for American companies to gain access to to sell their goods and services there while the US remains an enormous consumer of Chinese goods . "But I think the outcome is right which is, for years, China has essentially been shut out to American companies unless you effectively just kowtowed to these guys.
Adobe exec explains why the firm is using AI to transform the way people access and use documents on mobile (ADBE) 2020/09/23 13:00:00 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Most workers interact with PDF documents on a daily basis to access or share information. Now, nearly 30 years after Adobe first invented the PDF document format, the company is working to adapt one of its flagship products as the way people work changes. "As more work becomes digital and more businesses are digitizing everything that they do, our requirements around documents increase," Ashley Still, a senior exec in charge of Adobe's digital media business , told Business Insider. "It's about working as productively with those documents on a mobile phone, as we can on a computer." For a long time Adobe's goal with documents was to take paper and make it digital. Now, the idea of paper is out of the question: It's about keeping things digital, Still said. That includes Adobe features like making it possible to edit PDF documents, digitally sign documents , and scan and upload documents from a phone, features Adobe has added as its PDF business has evolved. Now Adobe's going step further.
Google Maps' new color-coded regions make it easy to see locations around you where COVID-19 cases are spiking 2020/09/24 18:21:28 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Google began rolling out a new feature Wednesday that allows app users to view relative COVID-19 case numbers as a layer in Google maps. The layer color codes areas by their 7-day average for the number of new cases per 100,000 people, and shows if cases are trending up or down. The goal of the new feature is to help users "make more informed decisions about where to go and what to do," wrote Sujoy Banerjee, a product manager at Google, in a blog post on Wednesday. The move isn't Google's first effort to release features tailored to life amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In June, Google released a number of features , including transit alerts that ping users when government mandates impact service or if there's a mask requirement on board. Google also introduced driving alerts that notify users about COVID-19 checkpoints when travelling. And for those looking to avoid crowded train cars, Google also made it easier to access live data on the business of stations. Competitors like Bing and Apple have also worked on pandemic-oriented mapping tools.

Fading expectations for more US stimulus is an 'issue' for stocks and the key driver of the current market weakness, Fidelity says 2020/09/24 13:49:12 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Fading expectations of further stimulus is an "issue" for stocks and the underlying cause for the current market drop, Fidelity Investments' Jurrien Timmer told CNBC. The White House's failure to deliver another round of stimulus would mean banks, energy stocks, and industrials would lose momentum at the same time that big technology stocks are correcting, he said. Timmer noted that a number of Federal Reserve officials have made it "fairly clear" that the US economy would falter without further fiscal measures. The S&P 500 fell 0.3% and the Nasdaq fell 0.5% at the market open on Thursday. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories . Shrinking hopes of another round of fiscal stimulus is an "issue for markets" and is the central reason behind the current drop, Jurrien Timmer of Fidelity Investments told CNBC on Thursday. The S&P 500 is 9.8% lower and the Nasdaq 100 is 14% lower from record highs in early September.

The net zero norm 2020/09/22 10:51:23 BusinessGreen
It is easy to be cynical about targets - but we shouldn't doubt the value of publicly-stated intentions It is easy to be cynical about targets. Anyone who has ever confidently announced their New Year's Resolution only to break it by January 12th knows it is much easier to have an admirable intention than it is to deliver on it. But it is also important to understand what precisely is being said through such cynicism, what implications flow from a distrust in aspirational targets. The power of the Paris Agreement was in the signal that it sent to markets and investors around the world that governments were committed to building net zero emission economies by mid-century. It meant that anyone continuing to bet on a high carbon future was tacitly accusing governments of either being incapable of delivering on their stated goal or engaged in a global conspiracy to deceive the public about their true intentions. If you refuse to accept someone will meet their stated targets you are implying they are either a failure or a liar.

Tim Cook said parts of Apple's home-working model will stay forever 2020/09/22 10:36:50 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Apple's CEO Tim Cook said Monday that some of the tech giant's new working-from-home habits are here to stay forever. During the pandemic, the company has found "there are some things that actually work really well virtually," he said in an interview at The Atlantic Festival on Monday. This means Apple will not "return to the way we were." He didn't specify what had worked well or how the company would change, but pointed out that it had unveiled the new Apple Watch Series 6 and new iPads while between 85% to 90% of its workforce were at home. However, Cook said that remote working is "not like being together physically." Employees can't run into each other in the corridor, for example, which hampers creativity. He hopes that the majority of his employees can be back in their offices — including Apple's $5 billion "spaceship" headquarters in California — by next year, he added. Cook's comments contrast with those of Netflix founder and co-CEO Reed Hastings, who told The Wall Street Journal on September 7 that remote working is a " pure negative ." Hastings also said that employees will be able to return to the office once " a majority of people " have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Big Comeback For Apple, Netflix, And Other Big Tech Names Softens Some Of The Pain 2020/09/21 22:12:32 Benzinga
A rally in the wilting Tech sector prevented a complete Monday washout. Still, at the end of the day, the week is off to a rough start as concerns about the virus, politics, and banks ganged up on most of Wall Street. That turnaround in Tech does raise some hopes going into Tuesday. Consider keeping an eye on futures trading overnight to get a sense of whether any of that strength can flow into tomorrow’s open. Having the Nasdaq (COMP) go positive at one point in the last few minutes was quite a statement, even if COMP couldn’t hold those gains at the close. The area the market depended on so much during the long rally (Tech) came back, with stocks like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL ), Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX ), QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM ), and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT ) all having nice days. On the other end, Financials continue to get beat up. They’re deep in the red, and Industrials got hammered too. Most of the big banks fell 3%, and industrials like Honeywell International Inc (NYSE: HON ), Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT ), and Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT ) all finished sharply lower amid fears of the virus spreading in Europe.
