    Bill Gates: Internet giants failed to predict Facebook data scandal

    Internet giants failed to predict the data privacy issues that have rocked companies such as Facebook (NasdaqGS: FB - news) , Bill Gates has said. In an interview with Sky News, the Microsoft (Euronext: MSF.NX - news) founder said most technological innovations over the last century faced unforeseen safety problems that had to be overcome. Facebook has been embroiled in a privacy scandal after it emerged as many as 87 million users of the social network had their data harvested by Cambridge Analytica, a firm working on the Trump 2016 election campaign.

    Britain says regrets role in anti-gay laws among former colonies

    Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday she regretted Britain's role in anti-gay legislation across its former colonies, seeking to address criticism of the Commonwealth at its gathering in London. May is looking to reinvigorate the Commonwealth, a 53-country network of mostly former colonies, as Britain seeks new post-Brexit ways to project its influence in the world and establish a role as a leader of free trade. Speaking on the second day of a week-long meeting in London, May addressed a wide range of humanitarian and environmental issues, including laws which outlaw same-sex activity in 37 of its 53 member nations.

    Stephen Hawking's voice was his tool and his trademark

    Stephen Hawking's computer-generated voice was known to millions of people around the world, a robotic drawl that somehow enhanced the profound impact of the cosmological secrets he revealed. The technology behind his means of communication was upgraded through the years, offering him the chance to sound less like a machine, but he insisted on sticking to the original voice because it had effectively become his own. Hawking started to communicate again using his eyebrows to indicate letters on a spelling card.

    Trump's protectionist stance has its dangers for US businesses

    For the second time in barely a fortnight, Donald Trump has cited "national security" to justify a significant decision affecting business. This raised eyebrows because flagging national security concerns allows the US to avoid punishment under World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules for what most regard as a protectionist measure. Then overnight, Mr Trump cited national security in choosing to block Singapore-based chipmaker Broadcom (Frankfurt: 28425279.F - news) 's $117bn takeover bid for US rival Qualcomm (Swiss: QCOM-USD.SW - news) , even though a deal had yet to be reached.

    Chipmaker move is latest protectionist step from Donald Trump

    For the second time in barely a fortnight, Donald Trump has cited 'national security' to justify a significant decision affecting business. Two weeks ago, that was the reason for slapping tariffs on US steel and aluminium imports, raising eyebrows because flagging national security concerns allows the US to avoid punishment under World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules for what most regard as a protectionist measure. Then overnight, Mr Trump cited national security in choosing to block Singapore-based chipmaker Broadcom (Frankfurt: 28425279.F - news) 's $117bn takeover bid for US rival Qualcomm (Swiss: QCOM-USD.SW - news) , even though a deal had yet to be reached.

    Google's shopping rivals call for action from EU antitrust watchdog

    Google competitors have called for further action by European Union antitrust regulators to ensure the Alphabet (Xetra: ABEA.DE - news) -owned firm treats rivals offering shopping services equally. Last year, Google said it would allow competitors to bid for ads at the top of a search page, giving them the chance to compete on equal terms, after the European Commission fined it a a record 2.4 billion euros ($2.9 billion). "Google's remedy proposal is, on its face, non-compliant with the prohibition decision," a group of 19 rivals said in a letter to European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager.

    US STOCKS-Wall Street roars back, traders eye volatility ahead

    Shaken out of many months of calm, Wall Street braced for a higher level of volatility in the days ahead, after a roughly 2 percent rebound in U.S. stocks on Tuesday followed the biggest one-day selloff in more than six years. "Today's market action is a classic of a market that has searched for a bottom," said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at First Standard Financial In New York, who predicted a rebound back to record levels. Bulls argue that strong U.S. corporate earnings, including a boost from the Trump administration's tax cuts, will ultimately support market valuations.
