Regulators again investigating Google

Published

on

Google is again in the spotlight of European regulators

Regulators have opened an investigation into Google’s lucrative digital advertising business.

The new investigation will examine whether it favours its own business over rivals, advertisers, and online publishers.

The tech giant generated $147 billion in revenue from online ads last year, more than any other company in the world. Advertisements that run on its properties which include YouTube, and Gmail, accounted for the bulk of sales and profits.

About 16% of revenue came from its display or network business, in which other media companies use Google technology to sell ads on their website and apps.

The EU’s main concern

The European Commission says it will be investigating to determine whether Google distorts competition by restricting access to third parties to user data for advertising purposes on websites and apps, while reserving such data for its own use.

“We are concerned that Google has made it harder for rival online advertising services to compete in the so-called ad tech stack,”

European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.

“We will also be looking at Google’s policies on user tracking to make sure they are in line with fair competition,” she said.

Google said it would engage constructively with the Commission.

Gen Z’s financial boom living with parents comes with baggage

Published

on

In an era marked by sky-high housing costs, many members of Generation Z are refusing to leave home.

While this arrangement offers financial relief in the form of reduced rent, the hidden costs, both emotional and financial, are beginning to surface.

Business Insider, in an analysis of recent surveys and personal accounts, reveals that Gen Z, defined as those born after 1996 by the Pew Research Center, faces less societal stigma for living at home than previous generations, particularly millennials.

However, this lack of criticism comes with its own set of challenges that can impact young adults in profound ways.

Financial benefits

While the prospect of saving money by living with family may seem appealing, the reality is often more complicated.

Beyond the social limitations, research indicates that living at home may have adverse effects on mental health.

Studies have shown a correlation between returning to the parental home and increased depressive symptoms, as well as heightened familial tensions.

These emotional tolls can outweigh the financial benefits, casting doubt on the long-term sustainability of the arrangement.

How will Disney’s AI strategy boost shares?

Published

on

Activist investor Blackwells has called upon Disney to implement a robust artificial intelligence strategy aimed at bolstering the company’s shares.

“Disney must produce an artificial intelligence strategy, and share elements of that strategy with its shareholders.”, said Blackwells in a recent presentation.

New groove

Blackwells, known for pushing corporations to adopt innovative approaches, contends that a well-crafted AI strategy could drive shareholder value and position Disney for sustained success in the entertainment landscape.

The activist investor emphasises that harnessing the power of AI could optimise content creation, enhance customer experiences, and streamline operational efficiency within Disney.

Disney’s response

The company opposed the suggestion to replace board members with activists’ nominees, emphasising the potential disruption to ongoing progress.

Additionally, Disney disagreed with Blackwells’ proposal to spin off land and hotels into a real estate investment trust, arguing it reflected a misunderstanding of the synergies within its businesses.

The airline had initially anticipated a boost in its fleet with the arrival of new Boeing planes, enabling an expansion of routes and increased passenger capacity.

However, prolonged delays in the manufacturing and delivery process have cast a shadow over these plans.

Growing pains

The airline industry, already navigating challenges posed by the global pandemic, now confronts the additional hurdle of supply chain disruptions impacting major aircraft manufacturers.

Ryanair’s dependence on Boeing for its fleet expansion has made it particularly vulnerable to these delays.
