Tomorrow, representatives from Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple will testify before Congress in the second hearing organized as part of the House Judiciary Committee’s antitrust investigation into the world’s largest technology companies.
While the first hearing focused on the ways technology companies busted the traditional news business, this one promises to look at the “impact of market power of online platforms on innovation and entrepreneurship,” according to the committee.
Unlike the previous hearing, which featured representatives from media outlets and industry trade organizations attacking or defending the ways in which online advertising had gutted the news business, this latest outing led by Rhode Island Democratic Rep. David Cicilline will have actual tech company execs on hand to answer congressional queries.
One section of the testimony will feature Google’s economic policy head, Adam Cohen; [...]read more

In January, Twitter gave a small percentage of users access to a new-look desktop experience. Today, the company is rolling out the refresh to everyone, marking Twitter’s first desktop redesign in seven years. No, you still can’t edit tweets, and yes, white supremacy [...]read more
AllBright, the London-based women’s membership club backed by private real estate investment firm Cain International, has raised $18.8 million to expand into the U.S.
The company’s new round was led by Cain International and was designed to take AllBright into three U.S. locations — Los Angeles, New York, and Washington.
The company said that the new facilities would be opening in the coming months.
Coupled with the launch of a new networking application called AllBright Connect and the company’s AllBright Magazine, the women’s networking organization is on a full-on media blitz.
Other investors in the round include Allan Leighton, who serves as the company’s non-executive chairman; Gail Mandel, who acquired Love Home Swap (a company founded by AllBright’s co-founder Debbie Wosskow); Stephanie Daily Smith, a former finance director to Hillary Clinton; and Darren Throop the founder, president and chief executive of Entertainment One.
A spokesperson for the company said that the [...]read more
La data si avvicina: il 27 luglio l’aeroporto di Milano Linate chiude per lavori. Uno stop totale, per tre mesi, per il quale si sta da tempo preparando un piano alternativo, in cui sarà Malpensa a farsi carico della maggior parte dei voli che, necessariamente, dovranno essere spostati. Un piano che, quindi, coinvolge anche il sistema della mobilità verso lo scalo varesino, soprattutto considerando che la chiusura di Linate coincide con le vacanze estive di milioni di italiani: per questo anche il Malpensa Express, il treno di Trenord che collega Milano all’aeroporto, vedrà in quei tre mesi treni con più vagoni e quindi più posti a sedere al giorno.Cronaca social experiment by Livio Acerbo #greengroundit #repubblicait https://milano.repubblica.it/cronaca/2019/07/15/news/chiude_aeroporto_linate_27_luglio_voli_su_malpensa_treni_malpensa_express-231244118/?rss
Just not the tweets. Though the company had spent the better part of the year promoting “healthy conversations,” it wasn’t much interested in putting the screws on its users. Debates, disagreements, the occasional blow-out controversy—that was all stuff that made Twitter Twitter. No, instead, Twitter decided to change itself from the outside in. It was time to give the experience of using Twitter a makeover.
A redesign of Twitter’s website was long overdue. The desktop interface hadn’t been refreshed in seven years, and the technology stack was so old that it was hard for the engineering team to issue any improvements. The team had begun fiddling with a web redesign back in 2017, and opened it up to beta testing in September 2018. By January, it was time to show more users how the new Twitter would look.
But as soon as Twitter invited people to opt into a prototype of the new design—[...]read more
