FTC fines YouTube $170M over privacy violations


WE ARE STILL UP OVER 200 POINTS.>>>TWO ITEMS ON GOOGLE. IT SETTLED WITH THE FTC FOR $170 MILLION OVER VIOLATIONS OF CHILDREN’S PRIVACY LAWS. THEN SEPARATELY, THERE’S A NEW ANTITRUST PROBE FROM STATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL, A COUPLE DOZEN OF THEM. LET’S START WITH THAT. SUSAN: THIS IS THE LARGEST AMOUNT THE FTC HAS EVER FINED ANY COMPANY WHEN IT COMES TO VIOLATING THE CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT, AND THIS BASICALLY REQUIRES THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO TRACK DATA, EXTEND DATA AND GET DATA FROM CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13 ON THE INTERNET, YOU BASICALLY NEED PARENTAL APPROVAL. THIS COMPLAINT ALLEGES THAT YOUTUBE USES COOKIES WHICH TRACK WHERE YOU MOVE AND GO ON THE INTERNET, THEY TRACK CHILDREN ON THE INTERNET AND TARGETED ADS TOWARDS THEM, MAKING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN THE PROCESS. NOW, THIS IS THE LARGEST FINE EVER SINCE THE LAW WAS ENACTED IN 1998. LOT OF PEOPLE SAYING $170 MILLION, DROP IN THE BUCKET FOR GOOGLE. STUART: STATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL GOING AFTER THEM ON ANTITRUST GROUNDS. WHAT ANTITRUST RULES HAVE THEY BROKEN? SUSAN: WAY TOO MUCH CONTROL ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SEARCH. 90% OF SEARCH IS CONTROLLED BY GOOGLE, NOT TO MENTION ANDROID WHICH POWERS MORE THAN 70% OF THE WORLD’S SMARTPHONES AND GOOGLE, YOUTUBE, OF COURSE, 1.8 BILLION MONTHLY USERS SO MORE THAN HALF THE NATION’S STATE ATTORNEYS SAY WE SHOULD BE LOOKING INTO WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE TOO BIG FOR THE GOOD OF AMERICA. STUART: IT’S A VERY DISTANT THREAT. MAYBE THAT’S WHY YOU HAVE NOT GOT AN IMMEDIATE RESPONSE ON THE STOCK PRICE.

Transblue modernizes their business with Microsoft Teams & Microsoft 365


(upbeat music) TransBlue is a family-owned business that provides outdoor living spaces for residential customers. At TransBlue, 100 percent customer satisfaction is the only thing we do. If we don’t do it right the first time, that means we have to go back out and we have to be out there longer, that is always the biggest challenge for us. Before we joined Microsoft 365 Business everything was done on paper. From the sales, from the project management, even into marketing. It caused a lot of confusion and problems for us and hours in every day were lost. Having a person in the field not having the right information didn’t give us any version control, any data integrity. There was a genuine concern that people weren’t always working with the most current data. Now, with Microsoft 365 Business, we can all be in constant communication and provide clarification whenever we need it. Today one of our sales people can go out to a project, he can take photos, write an estimate, open up Teams and upload it into SharePoint right from the homeowner’s location. Everything’s in the cloud, everything’s in our Microsoft teams. It’s so much easier to use, and it’s so much more efficient. The amount of time savings and productivity increase that we get is almost immeasurable. Microsoft 365 Business allows us to have quick communication with the office, but also to have those face-to-face calls with just a quick Skype for Business call. Skype has really been a game changer. All the different people in the different locations can access me just that quickly. I can look at what they’re doing, make a few suggestions. Something that can take half a day, instead I can do in a few minutes right from my desk. Microsoft 365 Business has been so fun to work with and learn and has made my job so much easier. It saves TransBlue money it saves our customers a lot of time, and that has greatly improved our customer satisfaction. Microsoft 365 Business has allowed me to scale up the amount of work we do because it provides efficiencies that just aren’t available without it. (upbeat music)

Chinese company at the forefront of drone business


CHERYL: AS THE TRADE WAR WITH CHINA HEATS UP, ONE COMPANY IS COMING INTO SHARP FOCUS. DRONE MAKER D.J.I. IS HITTING BIG IN THE US. IS THE U.S. GOVERNMENT ABOUT TO STEP IN WITH TURBULENCE FOR THE COMPANY. LAUREN: CONNELL McSHANE TAKES A LOOK AT THE COMPANY.>>REPORTER: THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY PUT A MEMO OUT WARNING THAT DRONES MADE IN CHINA COULD BE COLLECTING DATA AND SENDING IT BACK TO MAINLAND CHINA. WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE DRONE BUSINESS, THE COMPANY AT THE FOREFRONT IS D.J.I. IT WASN’T MENTIONED, COMPANIES WEREN’T MENTIONED SPECIFICALLY IN 2 L IN 2 THE IN T THE IN THEHE IN THE MEMO. THIS IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST DRONE COMPANY. MANY DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS CHINESE. D.J.I. TOOK US ON A TOUR OF THE SHOWROOM AND DEMONSTRATED SOME OF THE LATEST AND GREATEST, WHILE EMPHASIZING YOUR DATA IS NOT THEIR BUSINESS. WITH OVER 14,000 EMPLOYEES, D.J.I. SAYS ITS PURPOSE IS SIMPLE, JUST TRYING TO INNOVATE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.>>WE CONSIDER OURSELVES A GLOBAL COMPANY. WE FEEL THAT OUR TECHNOLOGY AND ITS APPLICATIONS IS RELEVANT EVERYWHERE. IT’S OUR MISSION TO WORK AS BROADLY AS WE CAN TO REALIZE THE POTENTIAL OF THIS TECHNOLOGY FOR EVERYWHERE THAT WE CAN. PUBLIC SAFETY IS AN AREA WHERE WE’VE SEEN A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF GROWTH. I THINK WE’VE SEEN A 500% INCREASE IN ADOPTION AND FRANKLY A LOT OF THE WAY THAT THIS STARTS IS THAT SOMEONE WILL OWN A DRONE PRIVATELY AND THEN HE’LL ALSO BE, SAY, A PART-TIME FIREFIGHTER AND THEN BRING IT TO HIS WORKPLACE AND LIKE HEY, GUYS, THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY USEFUL TOOL FOR US.>>REPORTER: THE DRONE BUSINESS, YOU THINK ABOUT DRONES FOR PERSONAL USE OR FOR SHOOTING VIDEO, BUT THE D.J.I. OFFICIALS

Trump: Apple’s Tim Cook made ‘very compelling’ case against tariffs


TIM COOK MADE A COMPELLING CASE AGAINST TARIFFS ON CHINA. LISTEN TO THIS.>>TIM WAS TALKING TO ME ABOUT TARIFFS, ONE OF THE THINGS HE MADE A GOOD CASE, SAMSUNG IS THEIR NUMBER ONE COMPETITOR, SAMSUNG IS NOT PAYING TARIFFS BECAUSE THEY’RE BASED IN SOUTH KOREA, IT IS TOUGH FOR APPLE TO PAY TARIFFS COMPETING WITH A GOOD COMPANY THAT IS NOT. HOW GOOD AFTER COMPETITOR? THEY ARE A VERY GOOD COMPETITOR. SO SAMSUNG IS NOT PAYING TARIFFS BECAUSE THEY’RE BASED IN A DIFFERENT LOCATION, MOSTLY IN SOUTH KOREA, BUT THEY’RE BASED IN SOUTH KOREA, I THINK HE MADE A VERY COMPELLING ARGUMENT SO I’M THINKING ABOUT IT. DAVID: REBECCA FAN NONE, TECH TITANS AUTHOR. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT? DOES APPLE HAVE A CASE THAT TARIFFS SHOULDN’T APPLY WHAT THEY DO IN CHINA?>>APPLE IS COMPETING WITH SAMSUNG WHICH IS THE LEADING MOBILE APP COMPANY, I THINK THEY DO HAVE A CASE. WE NEED TO HAVE MORE OPEN ECONOMY, MORE FREE TRADE, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, APPLE IS PRODUCING IN CHINA AND SAMSUNG IS PRODUCING IN SOUTH KOREA. SO THIS GIVES SAMSUNG A LEG UP OVER APPLE AND, SO TIM COOK DOES HAVE A CASE IN HIS SPECIFIC INCIDENT BUT OVERALL I THINK THAT, WE DO NEED THIS OPEN ECONOMY. WE NEED FREE TRADE. I THINK IT IS GOOD FOR THE GLOBAL INNOVATION ECONOMY OVERALL. I THINK IT HELPS CONSUMERS AND BUSINESSES. DAVID: BUT, THE QUESTION IS, CHINA MADE THIS HUGE, GREAT LEAP FORWARD. I THINK HE USED THAT PHRASE, BORROWING FROM MAO ZEDONG’S PHRASE, BUT HIGH-TECH THEY MADE A BIG LEAP. HOW MUCH OF THEIR BIG LEAP WAS BASED ON TECHNOLOGY THEY STOLE FROM US?>>I DON’T THINK THEY STOLE TECHNOLOGY FROM US. DAVID: YOU DON’T THINK THEY STOLE ANY TECHNOLOGY FROM US? I THINK EVEN CHINESE TECHNOLOGY WIZARDS ADMIT THERE WAS SOME OF THAT GOING ON.>>WHAT WAS HAPPEN, CHINA WAS COMING IN, INVESTING IN U.S. TECH COMPANIES. THEY INVESTED IN MANY LEADING COMPANIES IN THE U.S. INCLUDING UBER, LYFT, MAGIC LEAP, TESLA AND THEY WERE LEARNING. ALSO — DAVID: THEY WERE DOING MORE THAN LEARNING. THERE WERE SOME MEMBERS THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT THAT WERE SENT IN TO LITERALLY SPY ON TECH COMPANIES, STEAL SOME OF THAT HARDWARE OR SOMEHOW TRY TO DEVOLVE IT AND FIGURE OUT THE WAY THAT AMERICAN COMPANIES WERE EVOLVING WITH THAT TECHNOLOGY AND BRING IT TO CHINA. SO I MEAN, THERE REALLY WAS A CONCERTED EFFORT ON THE PART OF THE GOVERNMENT TO STEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES.>>I THINK THE FBI IS LOOKING AT 1000 INVESTIGATIONS RIGHT NOW. THEY’RE INVESTIGATING THESE CYBERSECURITY INCIDENTS, AND I THINK THE JURY IS STILL OUT. WE NEED TO SEE WHAT THE OUTCOME OF THAT INVESTIGATION IS. I DO THINK CHINA HAS COME IN TO THE U.S. THEY HAVE INVESTED IN OUR LEADING U.S. TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES. THEY HAVE GONE TO SCHOOL AT OUR FINEST SCHOOLS AND THEY HAVE WORKED IN OUR FINEST TECH COMPANIES IN SILICON VALLEY AND ELSEWHERE. THEY HAVE GONE BACK TO CHINA AND TAKEN A LOT OF KNOW HOW AND COPIED WHAT WE HAVE DONE IN THE U.S. AND MADE THE FACEBOOK OF CHINA, THE GOOGLE OF CHINA AND SO FORTH. BUT NOW TODAY, WHAT CHINA IS DOING IS THEY’RE ACTUALLY INNOVATING IN THEIR OWN RIGHT AND THESE — DAVID: FORGIVE ME FOR INTERRUPTING BUT DO YOU THINK THAT IS WHY THEY’RE MAKING PROGRESS ON 5G, IS THEIR OWN INNOVATION? CLEARLY THEY HAVE A TENFOLD GAIN ON US IN TERMS OF PLATFORMS FOR 5G THEY HAVE OVER THERE?>>THEY’RE DEFINITELY OUTSPENDING US IN 5G INFRASTRUCTURE. THEY’RE GETTING AHEAD IN OTHER VERY IMPORTANT TECH SECTORS SUCH AS A.I. CHINA IS, HAS A NATIONAL GOVERNMENT PRIORITY TO GET AHEAD IN AT LEAST 10 TECHNOLOGY SECTORS THAT REALLY MATTER. DAVID: LET’S TALK ABOUT A.I. FOR A SECOND. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I’M SURE YOU KNOW, PETER THIEL, ONE OF THE GREAT MINE IN HIGH-TECH IS A PROBLEM. WHEN COMPANIES LIKE GOOGLE ARE TRADING INFORMATION ON A.I. IN THEIR DEALINGS WITH CHINESE COMPANIES, THE GOVERNMENT GETS INVOLVED AND SOME OF THAT A.I. FINDS ITS WAY TO THE MILITARY, THE CHINESE MILITARY, WHICH IS NOT OUR FRIEND. IS THAT A PROBLEM?>>WE DO HAVE COMPANIES, THE LEADING A.I. COMPANY IN THE WORLD, THE MOST VALUABLE A.I. COMPANY IN THE WORLD FROM CHINA. A COMPANY CALLED SINCE TIME. THEY ARE USING, VERY BIG IN FACIAL RECOGNITION WHICH CAN BE USED BY POLICE TO TRACK CRIMINALS. IT CAN BE USED TO TRACK JAYWALKERS. DAVID: WE’VE SEEN IT WITH THE HONG KONG PROTEST.>>EXACTLY, WE’VE SEEN IT BEING EMPLOYED IN THIS CASE.>>THEY ARE ACTUALLY WORKING WITH HONDA ON AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES, WORKING WITH QUALCOMM. QUALCOMM IS AN INVESTOR IN SENSE TIME. THEY ARE WORKING WITH QUALCOMM ON NEXT GENERATION DEVICES. IT IS NOT ALL SUCH A BAD, BAD SCENARIO. DAVID: IT DOES CORN ME. I HAVE TO ASK ONE FINAL QUESTION. WHO WINS WITH 5G. WHO GETS THEIR WHOLE SYSTEM TIED INTO 5G FIRST, CHINA OR THE UNITED STATES.>>WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW, YOU HAVE A RACE. CHINA HAS ITS OWN STANDARDS, DEVELOPING ITS OWN STANDARDS. IT IS BEING ACCEPTED IN MANY COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD. THE U.S. IS FIGHTING BACK. WE’RE NOT ALLOWING CHINA 5G TO BE IN THIS MARKET. SAME THING WITH AUSTRALIA. DAVID: BUT THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IS?>>WHO IS GOING TO WIN? I THINK THE JURY IS STILL OUT. I THINK WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THAT CHINA IS, CHINA WILL HAVE ITS OWN STANDARDS. THOSE STANDARDS WILL GO INTO ASIA. I THINK THE U.S. AND THE WESTERN WORLD WILL HAVE ITS OWN STANDARD. DAVID: WOW, TWO SYSTEMS?

Oracle CEO: AI is integrated into our autonomous database


SLOWING IN THE U.S. AND WE ARE RIGHT ON THE DOORSTEP OF EARNINGS. I SPOKE WITH ORACLE’S CEO, MARK HURD EARLIER, I SAT DOWN WITH HIM YESTERDAY TO DISCUSS THE U.S. AND EUROPEAN ECONOMIES, WHY ORACLE IS BUYING BACK SO MUCH STOCK AND WHERE HE SEES GROWTH NOW BECAUSE WE ARE ON THE DOORSTEP OF EARNINGS. I’M WANTED TO GET A SENSE FROM HIM ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL SLOWDOWN THAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. BUT WE BEGAN WITH NET SUITE, ORACLE’S INVESTMENT IN THE APPLICATIONS MARKET AS WELL. TELL US WHAT YOU’RE GETTING FROM YOUR CUSTOMERS THIS WEEK THERE IN LAS VEGAS AND ABOUT NET SUITE.>>SURE. THANKS, MARIA. YOU’RE RIGHT, WE’VE INVESTED A LOT IN THE APPLICATIONS MARKET. WE’VE INVESTED IN BIG AND SMALL SEGMENTS OF THE MARKET, BIG CUSTOMERS AND SMALL CUSTOMERS. WE ACQUIRED NET SUITE, GOSH, I DON’T KNOW, PROBABLY TWO AND-A-HALF YEARS AGO NOW AND IT’S REALLY BEEN AN AMAZING SUCCESS, TO YOUR POINT. THERE’S, I DON’T KNOW, LESS THAN 10,000 BUT ROUGHLY THAT NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS HERE FOR OUR EVENT. IT IS VERY EXCITING. WHEN WE BOUGHT NET SUITE, MARIA, THE COMPANY WAS GROWING ABOUT 15, 16% IN REVENUE. WE’VE INVESTED A LOT IN R&D. WE’VE INVESTED A LOT IN TAILORS THE TAE TAILORING THE APPLICATION FOR MORE INDUSTRIES. WE’VE ADDED SALESPEOPLE AND IT’S RESULTED IN JUST INCREDIBLE GROWTH. STARTING REALLY ABOUT A YEAR AGO. SO ABOUT A YEAR INTO THE ACQUISITION WE BEGAN TO REALLY GROW OUR BOOKINGS AND THAT’S TRANSLATED TO REVENUE. SO LAST QUARTER WE REPORTED REVENUE THAT WAS ALMOST DOUBLE THE REVENUE GROWTH WE HAD COMING INTO THE ACQUISITION. MARIA: YOU’RE SEEING IT IN THE NUMBERS. THE APPLICATIONS BUSINESS IS SOARING RIGHT NOW AT ORACLE, AS YOUR CUSTOMERS MOVE FROM ON-PREMISE TO CLOUD. TAKE US BEHIND THE CURTAIN THERE. WHAT KIND OF COMPANIES ARE MOVING FROM ON-PREMISE TO CLOUD? HOW DO YOU CONTINUE GETTING THEM TO SWITCH OVER INTO THE ORACLE CLOUD? AND HOW SIGNIFICANT IS THIS IN TERMS OF THE APPLICATIONS BUSINESS AT ORACLE?>>THERE’S A COUPLE HE’LL THINGS>>THERE’S A COUPLE HE’LL THINGG>>THERE’S A COUPLE HE’LL THINGI>>THERE’S A COUPLE HE’LL THINGG ON. THE A APPLICATIONS MARKET IS $25 BILLION, SPENT PRIMARILY ON APPLICATIONS. MOST OF IT TODAY IS SPENT ON ON ON-PREMISE APPLICATIONS. THE MARKET CHANGES SIGNIFICANTLY AS IT MOVES TO CLOUD. AS IT MOVES TO CLOUD, THE SUBSCRIPTION YOU PAY FOR THE CLOUD INCLUDES NOT ONLY THE APPLICATION BUT INCLUDES ALL THE HARDWARE, IF YOU WILL, THE SERVERS, THE STORAGE AND SO IT BECOMES A BIGGER MARKET JUST BY THE VERY NATURE OF THE MIGRATION OF THE APPLICATION TO SAAS. INSIDE THE INSIDE THAT, $75 BILLION IS BACK OFFICE, THAT WOULD BE DESCRIBED AS THINGS LIKE GENERAL LEDGER ACCOUNTING, SUPPLY CHAIN AND PROCUREMENT AND H.R. AND THE OTHER 2 A 5 OTHER 25A 5 OTHER 25 T5 OTHER 25 TO 30% IS FRONT OFFICE, SALES AND MARKETING AUTOMATION. NET SUITE IS IN THE MID-MARKET, SMALLER CUSTOMER SIZE OF THE BACK OFFICE MARKET AND IT’S HAD EXPLOSIVE GROWTH. WHEN YOU ASK WHO IS MOVING, IT’S EVERYBODY FROM THE BIGGEST GUYS, WHETHER THOSE BE AS BIG AS AN AT&T, ON AN EXTREME, I COULD GO THROUGH MANY OTHERS, TO YOUR SMALLEST STARTUP. MARIA: ARE YOU TRYING TO GET THIS APPLICATIONS OF COMPANIES TO MOVE JUST TO THE ORACLE CLOUD OR ARE YOU TRYING TO GET ALL APPLICATIONS TO MOVE TO THE CLOUD OR ARE YOU JUST LOOKING AT THE ORACLE PORTIONS OF THE BUSINESS? HOW DO YOU GROW THIS EVEN MORE IS REALLY THE BOTTOM LINE?>>SO IF YOU LOOK TODAY, HALF OF THE CLOUD APPLICATION CUSTOMERS WE HAVE WERE ROUGHLY OR HALF OF OUR REVENUE, THAT’S A BETTER WAY
