On July 5th, 2016, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit issued its opinion on whether password sharing violates the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). I read the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit opinion on password sharing , and I suggest you do as well. Judge McKeown and Judge Reinhardt make compelling and insightful comments. For those of you who don’t have the time or energy to read it yourselves, I’ve summarized the major points: The case which...
Last week, Facebook announced its foray into the world of digital personal assistants with “Moneypenny.” The name is apparently inspired by a character who plays secretary to James Bond’s boss in a number James Bond movies. Moneypenny will be integrated into Facebook’s Messenger app and is designed to help app users to research and order products online. Facebook has not yet unveiled the service and is currently testing it among members of its staff. While services...
 
The Financial Times reported on Sunday that Facebook is preparing to offer financial services. According to the report, Facebook plans to allow its users to send money to each other and make international money transfers, though details on other potential payments services – such as electronic bill pay or payments for goods and services outside of Facebook’s own ecosystem – are slim.  Facebook’s move into the payments market is not surprising; its top tech competitors...

When Facebook Credits launched in 2009, the social network required game developers like Zynga to use Facebook Credits as a payment platform and even tried selling Facebook Credit gift cards on the shelves of stores like Target and Walmart. Industry analysts originally saw the potential for Facebook Credits to eventually become a...
 
Several friends asked me for advice before Facebook's recent IPO. It is not my habit to give financial advice so I probably saved them quite a few bucks by refusing to tell them if they should or should not buy Facebook shares.

Movable messaging air force such as WhatsApp, BlackBerry Messenger and Apple’s iMessage are widely believed to have had a tremendous impact on wireless service providers’ messaging revenues, but another company has now been identified as potentially sharing the responsibility for carriers’ dwindling SMS sales. Another method of communication is through Facebook. If...

CBS announced this morning that it would acquire CNET for $1.8 billion. CNET.com is a technology news and information portal but the company also owns several other endemic websites. CBS’ acquisition appears to be synergistic, as CNET’s assets do not overlap substantially with CBS’ media properties. But CNET’s growth has been stagnant at best in recent years and its influence over “technophiles” is waning. So paying a 45% premium for CNET appears a bit “extravagant” for...
