Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google (FANG for short.)
This is a thread to discuss and news headlines for the big brother tech giants. Non FANG tech companies are also welcome. Topic to start, why did shares in all FANG companies drop today?

Bloomberg reports the G-20's "digital tax" issue will impact Google, Amazon, and others...

Bloomberg reports that digital taxation would impact companies such as Amazon, Google, Apple and others, an official at the G-20 meetings in Buenos Aires who is familiar with the discussions says, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

As one would imagine, U.S. strongly opposes any measures specifically targeting digital companies or impeding growth in the digital sector, a U.S. Treasury Department official said last week, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

Lizardman Zuckerberg is dumping stock. In the business world the captain is the first to leave the ship.

If Trump can use the rules to benefit himself, then clearly something is terribly wrong.

Zuckerberg is putting the "aspi" in aspiration. With the drop in stock and sudden infamy of Lizardman Zuckerberg we can kiss his attempt/plan to run for president goodbye  :allears:

I'm still not getting the big deal here about this. I understand the concept of things being worse when a spotlight is shown on it, but still. The CEO/exec guy they had who was jerking himself off over this "BIG DATA ANALYTICS" is every single tech sales pitch ever.

The problem is Cambridge Analytica used this to help the wrong side.  If they'd been working for Hillary nothing would be said, as they're working for the other side this becomes another element in the DRUMPF ONLY WON BECAUSE OF FOUL PLAY narrative.

I understand that aspect of it. But the media isn't even capable of framing why it's bad from that obvious one.

Ties to Trump -> Bad. No further explication is needed, and would just be a waste of time and effort. The media simply needs to inform the reader that Trump is involved.

Yeah it’s nothing more than the usual suspects getting buttblasted that Drumpf outwitted the Democrats.  If the GOP had any balls, they’d be investigating Hillary’s niggershines as well.

The issue is that trump did the action with the wrong intentions, and given trump's family history and background he has no moral capital. Obama had the right intentions and is still a moral paragon in the political world, Obama can be trusted to handle sensitive and private information like this. there is no double standard it comes down to qualifications.


I guess they never read the story about how Obama's regulations were passed to cripple certain businesses so his cronies could buy them all up for cheap once they went into critical financial condition.

For a lot of reasons.  Not only is it impossible to explain in the idiot 5 second sound bite summary that they limit their explanations to for anything, if they go too wide and alarmist, they get people to understand how *all* their online activity is tracked and packaged as advertising data and get everyone installing adblocks and Ghostery onto their browsers and kill their cash cows.
