  • The NYT’s Facebook Bombshell

We begin today’s email with a closer look at the WSJ’s article about Apple’s troubles in India. In particular, we go over the straight-forward problem facing Apple in India. The discussion then turns to news that Facebook has been giving away user data for free in order to advance its own interests. We go over my thoughts on ad-based business models built on data collection. The email concludes with Apple pushing its new Apple Music integration with Amazon Echo and Alexa. We discuss the logic behind Apple sending Apple Music notifications about Echo and rolling out the red carpet for Alexa in the App Store.
