Google says data is more like sunlight than oil, one day after being fined $57 million over its privacy and consent practices – Silicon Alley
Google's chief financial officer, Ruth Porat, said on Tuesday that data is more like sunlight than oil.
It's an upbeat twist on the phrase "data is the new oil," which implies information is finite.
Porat said Google was using data for positive developments, like diagnosing breast cancer.
Her comments at the World Economic Forum came one day after Google was hit with a $57 million fine by French authorities over its data-collection practices.
Google wants to popularize a more upbeat way of describing data: It's more like sunlight than oil.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday morning, Google's chief financial officer, Ruth Porat, said that "data is more like sunlight than oil," adding, "It is like sunshine — we keep using it, and it keeps regenerating."
It's a twist on the well-known phrase "data is the new oil," meaning the world's most valuable resource is information rather than petroleum.
Like the oil barons who preceded them, Silicon Valley ...

German Court Throws Out Qualcomm’s Latest Patent Case Against Apple – Daring Fireball
A patent lawsuit filed by Qualcomm Inc against Apple Inc was
thrown out by a German court on Tuesday, in a reversal for the
U.S. chipmaker after it won a recent court ban on the sale of some
iPhones in the country.
The regional court in the city of Mannheim dismissed the Qualcomm
suit as groundless in an initial verbal decision, saying the
patent in question was not violated by the installation of its
chips in Apple’s smartphones.
“We are happy with the decision and thank the court for their time
and diligence,” Apple said in a statement. “We regret Qualcomm’s
use of the court to divert attention from their illegal behavior
that is the subject of multiple lawsuits and proceedings around
These court cases are so tedious to follow, but the effects are real. Until this ruling Apple was forced to removed the iPhone 7 and 8 from sale in Germany — very popular products in a very big market...
