Warren, Amazon spar in Twitter war, as 2020 Dem accuses tech giant of 'deliberately misconstruing' facts

Today 06:05 GMT

Warren kicked off the spat on Monday by reiterating her argument that Amazon abuses its control over the Amazon Marketplace, which hosts third-party sellers, to improve its own retail operations and unfairly disadvantage the third-party sellers.

Warren asserted that similar antitrust principles were "applied to railroad companies more than a hundred years ago," and that "we need to now look at those tech platforms the same way."

Innovate Big tech would rather throw us a broken Samsung Galaxy Fold

Today 07:01 GMT

If you ever wondered whether the tech business is thrashing around in search of something – anything – to make people Buy More Unneeded Stuff, Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is all the proof you need.

You can almost smell the desperation in so many tech “advances”, which take the form either of adding things you didn’t need (the side button on Samsung phones is hardwired to its awful Bixby voice assistant) or taking away things you did (Apple removing phone headphone jacks so you need to buy, and lose, tiny plug-in dongles).

The technology conference that has become a global media phenomenon with its short, punchy TED Talks that promote “Ideas Worth Spreading” is the closest thing that Silicon Valley has to a safe space.

Even Amazon and the tech giants could fail to click in a changing market

Monday 06:03 GMT

Amazon’s search for more growth is mirrored across the big US tech firms reporting earnings this week, as penetration in its home market starts to plateau.

Amazon is still up more than 25% on this time a year ago, and a reading of 90 on its price to earnings ratio – essentially a measure of investors’ hopes for the future – suggests that its stellar growth is expected to continue. But, as always, investors will be on the lookout for signs the sheen might be rubbing off when the company reports its results for the first three months of the year on Wednesday, after it acknowledged it had come up against some bumps in the road.
