Are Facebook And Google Missing The True Profit Potential Of Messaging Apps?

While peer-to-peer messaging on a mobile phone has always been the most basic of all mobile phone features, 2016 is shaping up to be the biggest year ever in the transformation of smartphone messaging into more than just a medium for communication. Putting aside the continued breakout growth of Snapchat and Whatsapp, there’s quite a bit happening with the world’s two leading message apps: Facebook’s Messenger and Google’s Hangouts eventually to be remade into Allo. Earlier this year, Facebook opened up their Messenger app for developers to build in-app bots that could do anything from receive news to ordering food. Google followed shortly by announcing Allo a brand new messaging app that will also have similar bot capabilities . The plainly obvious goal of Facebook and Google in encouraging developers to build bots directly into messaging apps is to acquire more users of their messaging apps

The Importance Of Minding Your Online Manners

Think Twice, Write Once A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot. — Robert Heinlein, Friday Because I was not brought up by wolves, I know what good manners are. I know, for example, that being unpunctual is ill-mannered

This CEO Is Famous For His Social Activism, But He’s Silent On Trump

A few major companies and chief executives are starting to mobilize against Donald Trump, but one CEO remains notably mum. Marc Benioff, the outspoken “social activist” leader of software company Salesforce, has so far said next to nothing about the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. Pressed repeatedly by The Huffington Post for his thoughts on Trump, whose stances against Muslims, immigrants and women have earned him, most recently, the ire of tech powerhouse Apple , Benioff has declined comment. Just last month, The Wall Street Journal dubbed the 51-year-old Benioff an “activist CEO,” a new kind of corporate leader unafraid to take on the kinds of controversial issues typical corporate chieftains fear to touch.

Apple Withholds Support For GOP Convention Because Of Donald Trump

Apple will not contribute funds or other resources for the Republican National Convention due to presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump’s prejudiced remarks, Politico reported on Saturday . The decision by one of the United States’ largest and most popular companies is the biggest corporate defection from the Republican convention, where the party will formally nominate Donald Trump. And it marks a significant win for progressive groups, which are pressuring major companies to boycott the convention over Trump. Apple specifically pointed to Trump’s comments about minority groups, immigrants and women in explaining its choice, two sources with knowledge of the decision told Politico. “The Apple news raises the bar for other corporations,” Rashad Robinson, a spokesman for ColorOfChange PAC, said in a statement. The PAC is leading efforts to pressure companies not to participate in this year’s GOP gathering.

Mattel Finally Nails It With Game Developer Barbie

A few years ago Mattel had to apologize for a book featuring a patronizing portrayal of someone called Computer Engineer Barbie, a flustered girl who can’t fix her cotton-candy pink computer without help from boys.  Now the doll maker, which has been rebranding  itself in a more feminist-palatable way amid declining sales , is trying again with Barbie Careers Game Developer . A remarkably chill looking woman who wears jeans, an olive green jacket and a T-shirt, and even sports punk-rock pink/red streaks in her hair (retail price: $12.99), game developer Barbie even has real code on her computer. For the authenticity you can thank Molly Proffitt, CEO of Ker-Chunk Games, LLC. , who worked with Mattel to ensure the doll was believably techie — and that meant making sure Barbie was working on real code. “The computer has Javascript on it and you can see various instances of game engines on her laptop,” she told The Huffington Post, adding that the project was personally important to her. “I really know that girls need an icon that shows that they can be a part of the tech space and Barbie does that

Big Tech Squashes New York’s ‘Right To Repair’ Bill

Major tech companies like Apple have trampled legislation that would have helped consumers and small businesses fix broken gadgets. New York state legislation that would have required manufacturers to provide information  about how to repair devices like the iPhone failed to get a vote, ending any chance of passage this legislative session. Similar measures have met the same fate in Minnesota, Nebraska, Massachusetts and, yes, even previously in New York . Essentially, politicians never get to vote on so-called right to repair legislation because groups petitioning on behalf of the electronics industry gum up the proceedings. “We were disappointed that it wasn’t brought to the floor, but we were successful in bringing more attention to the issue,” New York state Sen. Phil Boyle (R), a sponsor of the bill, told The Huffington Post Friday.

Anthony Weiner Delivered The Greatest Self-Burn On Twitter This Week

It’s been a week of solid internet burns — really good work, internet. Perhaps the most notable was Hillary Clinton’s burn on Donald Trump. That set off a firestorm of memes, jokes and tweets under the hashtag #DeleteYourAccount. But former U.S. Representative from New York Anthony Weiner delivered what should be considered the final word on this trend, and in doing so, endured a delightfully candid self-burn.  Kudos, sir. Kudos.
