The Bitter Taste of a Sour Apple (and CES update)
Facing slowing sales in China, a lack of innovation mojo, and a difficult transition from products to services, Apple has shed a Facebook's worth of valuation since its $Trillion-dollar high. Here's why, and what's next. Our Fast Five: > Marriott's Data Breach was NOT as bad as you might have thought (but it was); > IBM's WeatherChannel gets smacked by Los Angeles for using user data for marketing & hedge fund research; > SEC's chairman Ajit Pai & commissioner Brendan Carr cancel their CES plans (citing the showdown, which we don't buy); > PepsiCo launches an autonomous "cooler on wheels" to distribute snacks to college students; and > Hackers in Germany target "certain" politicians with doxing attack. Our Tech Bites Winner: Huawei, for demoting employees who used an Apple iPhone to tweet official Happy New Year's greetings. Our Crystal Ball: Our Futurum-take on the upcoming CES show in Las Vegas, and the arrival of ACPC laptops, new smart-phone gaming options, and the arrival of "AI Inside" marketing.
