YouTube’s head of original shows admits Netflix is ‘too far ahead’ to compete with – Silicon Alley

Susanne Daniels, the global head of original content for YouTube, said in a...

Susanne Daniels, the global head of original content for YouTube, said in a recent interview that her company's original programming can't compete with Netflix's investment in original content.
"I don’t think you can compete with Netflix at this point; they're too far ahead," Daniels told IndieWire of YouTube Red, the company's subscription programming service.
Daniels added, "I do think, in time, we can compete with Hulu and Amazon and certainly Apple, and hopefully, you'll see us do that."
Netflix, which will have spent an estimated $8 billion on content in 2018, reached a mark of 125 million global subscribers in April.
Netflix has faced competition in the TV streaming field from massive companies like Google parent Alphabet and Amazon for years, but at least one of its competitors sees the field-leading streaming service as out of reach.
Susanne Daniels, the global head of original content for YouTube, admitted in a recent interview with IndieWire that her company's ori ...

Amazon is reportedly working on its first home robot – The Verge

Amazon is reportedly developing its first robot for the home, according to Bloomberg....

Amazon is reportedly developing its first robot for the home, according to Bloomberg. The project has been given the internal codename “Vesta,” named after the Roman goddess of the hearth. It’s being developed by Lab126, the Amazon hardware R&D center that previously built the Kindle, Fire Phone, and Echo.
There are no firm details on what Amazon’s robot looks like or what purpose it will serve, but Bloomberg suggests it could be a sort of “mobile Alexa” — following users around their house to places where they can’t speak directly to an Echo speaker. Prototype robots built by Amazon reportedly have computer vision software and cameras for navigation, and the company is said to be planning to seed devices in employees’ homes by the end...

The data scientist behind the Cambridge Analytica scandal did paid consultancy work for Facebook and has close ties to staff (FB) – Silicon Alley

Data scientist Aleksandr Kogan said he once had close ties to Facebook, despite being blamed by the company for his role in the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
Kogan said he acted as a paid consultant in 2015 and even gave talks about behavioural psychology to Facebook employees.
Facebook blamed Kogan and his company, Global Science Research, for creating an app which harvested millions of users' profiles used by Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook said it was unaware of Kogan’s connection to Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook hasn't been totally upfront about its close ties with a major player in the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
Aleksandr Kogan is the data scientist who created a quiz app which harvested 87 million Facebook user profiles, then passed that information to Cambridge Analytica, in breach of Facebook's terms of service.
Facebook has since sought to paint Kogan as the main villain in the scandal, but the data scientist told BuzzFeed he had a deep relationship with the co ...

Netflix is betting billions on its original shows and movies — but this analyst warns it’s a far riskier gamble than investors realize (NFLX) – Silicon Alley

The bull case for Netflix has a big flaw, argues Wedbush analyst Michael...

The bull case for Netflix has a big flaw, argues Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter, a longtime skeptic of the company.
Optimists think the company's big investment in original content, which is sinking the company ever deeper in debt, will eventually pay off in lower costs, Pachter noted.
But that argument ignores the fact that Netflix licenses the vast majority of its content, including nearly all of its most popular "originals" — and licensing fees just keep going up.
One of the central pillars of the bull case for Netflix may be resting on shaky grounds.
Investors and analysts backing the stock have based their optimism, in part, on the company's growing investment in its "originals" — the shows and movies that are exclusive to Netflix. Although that investment is already costing the company billions of dollars, it should pay off in the long run, because the "originals" will help insulate it from rising costs of licensing other companies' content, the thinking goes. Over ...

First there’s the support for “cutout” displays, better known as The Notch. One of Android P’s premier features will be proper support for cameras that jut into the screen, so apps, videos, and status bars can display properly...

HBO programming chief Casey Bloys had some criticism for the runaway spending of his network's streaming rivals, Netflix and Amazon, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Bloys speculated that widespread, exorbitant TV spending could mean that the industry is "in a bubble."
He said that his rivals' spending feels like "irrational exuberance," in a reference to Alan Greenspan's label for the dot-com bubble of the 1990s.
HBO programming chief Casey Bloys had a degree of criticism for the big spending of his network's streaming-based rivals, Netflix and Amazon, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
In a conversation centered on the million-dollar salaries HBO is paying stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon for a second season of its hit series "Big Little Lies," Bloys also discussed the record-breaking, nine-figure contracts Netflix has given to successful showrunners Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes in the past year...

Don’t hold your breath waiting for Mark Zuckerberg to resign — or be pushed out.
The Facebook co-founder and chief executive said he’s still the right man to lead the company despite its recent turmoil, on a conference call with the media on Wednesday afternoon. When asked if he’s best equipped to steer Facebook, Zuckerberg answered with a quick “yes,” before expanding.
“I think life is about learning from the mistakes and figuring out what you need to do to move forward,” said Zuckerberg. “I think the reality of a lot of this is that when you’re building something like Facebook that is unprecedented in the world, there are going to be things that you mess up. And if we’d gotten this right, we’d have messed something else up.”

President Donald Trump reportedly met with Oracle co-CEO Safra Catz on Tuesday.
The meeting came as Trump keeps blasting Amazon.
Oracle and Amazon are locked in a competition for a Pentagon cloud computing contract worth billions.
President Donald Trump reportedly dined with Oracle co-CEO Safra Catz Tuesday night amid his repeated berating of Amazon — a company with which Oracle is in direct competition to land a Pentagon contract worth billions.
Bloomberg reported that Trump would dine with Catz and billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel. The White House did not respond to a request for comment from Business Insider asking what was discussed at the meeting.
The meeting came amid Trump's war of words with the internet giant. On Tuesday, he tweeted that he was "right" about his criticism of Amazon's deal with the US Postal Service, later telling reporters that Amazon is causing massive store closures. Trump has launched attacks on Amazon for well more than a year,...
