How Google’s Alphabet Reorg Could Affect Its Health Data


As speculation swirls about Google's restructuring under its new Alphabet umbrella, one thing seems like a safe bet: The company may have made it more difficult to spread its wealth of data from entity to entity. Privacy watchers suggest that outcome may have been intended, particularly when involving health data.

Google has kept well-known web services like Gmail, Google Search and YouTube in the reorganization, allowing data sharing among them to remain intact, but separated businesses such as X, which pursues futuristic innovations like driverless cars and Glass, into separate Google siblings within Alphabet. The connected home company, Nest, is another new division of Alphabet, broken out from Google.

Of special interest to observers clued into privacy issues, however, were the breakouts Life Sciences, the health research operation, and Calico, which conducts research aiming to slow the aging process.

Apple Delaying Live TV Service to 2016 as Content-Licensing Negotiations Stall


Apple customers waiting for the company to revolutionize live TV as it did for music and phone service will have to keep waiting, at least until next year.

The company wanted to introduce this year a live TV service delivered via the internet, but is now aiming for 2016, said people familiar with Apple's plans. Talks to license programming from TV networks such as those owned by CBS and 21st Century Fox are progressing slowly, some of the people said. Apple also doesn't have the computer network capacity in place to ensure a good viewing experience, said some of the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private.

Without enough content deals in place, Apple has scrapped plans to announce the service at a Sept. 9 event in San Francisco, which would have coincided with the beginning of the new network TV season, the people said. The Cupertino, Calif.-based company still plans to introduce a more powerful version of its Apple TV set-top box at the event, said the people, but customers -- for now, at least -- will need a cable or satellite TV subscription or an antenna to watch live network TV.

Samsung Introduces New Phones, Samsung Pay and Periscope Competitor


Samsung, which swears it is no follower in the smartphone game, is now promising it has the best mobile payments and live-streaming capabilities.

Roughly a month before Apple is expected to introduce its latest version of the iPhone, Samsung on Thursday morning announced its two latest phones -- or phablets -- the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+.

But the company is also competing on important mobile elements that aren't just hardware. Samsung used the Thursday event to announce Samsung Pay, its entree into the mobile payments space, and Live Broadcast, its play on the live-stream craze.
