Alphabet unit Google's bid to take on Apple and Samsung in the wearable technology market by buying Fitbit hit a hurdle as EU antitrust regulators launched an investigation into the $2.1 billion deal. The move by the European Commission came despite Google's pledge last month not to use the fitness tracker's data for advertising purposes in a bid to address competition concerns. The EU antitrust enforcer said the data pledge was insufficient to allay its worries. "The proposed transaction would further entrench Google's market position in the online advertising markets by increasing the already vast amount of data that Google could use for personalisation of the ads it serves and displays," the Commission said. It singled out online search and display advertising services and ad tech services, where analytics and digital tools are used in digital advertising, as two areas that would be affected by the deal. It said data collected via wrist-worn wearable devices appeared to be … [Read more...] about Google’s $2.1 billion Fitbit deal hits roadblock as EU opens probe
Apple is able to detect this behavior whenever an app accesses the camera, microphone, or clipboard because all apps have to communicate with Apple’s API. “Functions like the clipboard and microphone need to be accessed through the operating system.

The benchmark 10-year yield was down 4.1 basis points at 0.5397% in morning trading after reaching as low as 0.538%, its lowest since March 9. Yields on other Treasuries also fell as investors bought up the government bonds as safe havens against both economic and political uncertainty. Some of the decline came after the Commerce Department said gross domestic product fell at a 32.9% annualized rate in the second quarter, largely in April after restaurants, bars and factories had to shutter to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As soon as we try and put barriers up, effectively, between countries and companies, essentially, to lose what was set out to be. . . I was lucky enough to be here at the beginning of GSM. It was all about generating a global marketplace. Clearly, we've done that, and we shouldn't necessarily try and tear it apart. I think all we're trying to do here is, open interfaces and widen the supply chain again, to the extent that there's fair competition on the marketplace. I'd argue that opening these interfaces would put competition in China as well. Let's look at it the other way around. Let's encourage more companies in China to compete with Huawei and ZTE. It's really about how to broaden that ecosystem. … [Read more...] about Could ‘Open’ systems negate Huawei’s influence on 5G?
