Dell Computers: Michael Dell
"Long before for anyone heard of the tech underpins like Mark Zuckerberg. Evan Spiegel ORC. Trina Lake back before it was fashionable to drop out of college to pursue your startup even before people used the term startup back in the ancient days of the one thousand nine hundred eighty s the dorm room miracle story. You've heard of was Michael Dell's now today. The company is enormous beyond enormous worth billions of dollars Dell has sold more than six hundred fifty million computers since Michael founded in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. And what's amazing about. This isn't the money it's not even the idea. What's amazing easing about all this? Well Michael Dell. Because he's not a backslapping sales guy. He doesn't come across as particularly charismatic. He's actually on the quiet side. Maybe even a little shy Michael grew up in Houston in the nineteen seventies was just as digital technology was taking off in that city with companies like Texas instruments and then later Compaq. His Dad was a doctor. His mom was financial consultant and the expectation was that Michael. Michael would become a doctor like his dad. But even from a young age Michael Dell felt pulled in a different direction he was into numbers. I mean I remember when I was small child. My Dad had this adding machine victor adding machines before the electronic calculator and I was was just fascinated that you could add up numbers with this machine and really big numbers and and it would make this like mesmerizing sound every time it did it and I just kind of love that and then I remember when I was about Seven or eight years old. I bought a calculator. I it was the first semiconductor based calculators and I was fascinated that this small machine could do complicated math problems so yeah I got I got very interested in this stuff it also turned out that about equidistant between my junior high school and our and our house there was a radio shack store and so when I was riding my bike home I could stop by the radio shack next door and see the you know early forms of the of the personal computer and hang out there until the kick me out of the store and were you you know like kind of entrepreneurial as a kid yeah I kind of liked business And I had all kinds of businesses is selling baseball cards Had A stamp auction. I got a job at a gold coin and jewelry store and I was to negotiate with people that were selling things and by those things the lowest possible price because the owner gave me Nia percentage of the cut and whether you also worked for the local paper for for some time. Yeah so I got this job. Working for the Houston is in Post newspaper. It doesn't exist anymore now. They think they combined with the Houston Chronicle. And my job along with hundreds of other mostly mostly you know. Teenagers was to call random people on the phone and try to sell them a subscription to the Houston Post newspaper and I observed three things the first thing I observed. Is that if you sounded like the people you were talking to. They were much more more likely to buy the newspaper from you like you. You put on a text like a heavy Texas accent. Yeah I'm not GonNa do it for you here but I think you can. You can use your imagination nation. Okay so second thing I heard was that people that were getting married. Were much more likely to buy the newspaper and then the third thing I observed is that people that were moving into a new house or residents were also far more likely to buy the newspaper. Well how did you Who was getting married and was moving in? Well you talk to them. You strike up a conversation you just call people and say and ask them about themselves. I guess this is like at that a time or perfectly happy to tell strangers personal details right. Yeah so I. I observed this and what I figured out is that in Texas. This is when you as many states when you want to get a marriage license you have to go to the county courthouse. It turns out this public information right and among the information that you give to the county court is the address you want the licensed sent to so so with this information. I devised a direct mail program where I sent letters to all of the people that had applied for marriage licenses in Sixteen County area surrounding Harris County. Which is where Houston Texas is is and I hired a bunch of my high school pals to go out to all these county courthouses and type the names in two small apple two computers and I sent a massive direct mail campaign to all those people that were applying to get marriage licenses and there were also at that time in Houston? There was a building boom. There were these very large apartment and condominium complexes that were going up and so I would go to these buildings under construction and sort of figure out who was in charge and say A. Hey I'm from the Houston Post newspaper and you know we've got this great offer where your new residence get the paper free for two weeks and all of these do is fill out the form. You're a high school student when you're doing this. Yes how much money did you walk away with. But I think it was about seventeen years old. I made a little over eighteen thousand dollars that year. This is like freakishly precocious of a of a high school senior. Like that's it's just weird that you would even no to think of doing those things I mean. Don't don't you think I didn't really think about it like that. I just it just seemed like a good idea so I was pursuing. You was working. I pull you things that didn't work but but that worked so I I kept doing eighteen thousand dollars. What did you do with that money? I mean that that must have been more money than you've ever seen in your life. I bought a BMW. So I wanted I wanted to. BMW Am. W what did the other students think of you. What did you have this reputation as like a business whiz kid in high school or or like? What did they anything about you? You know. I don't really know and I and I didn't really care So I I was sort of keeping myself and I had a few friends is but I I wasn't the most social of kids but you must have been somewhat social because you were going out and selling stuff to strangers rangers. Sure social enough to make the sale. Yeah so you are on the one hand doing this entrepreneurial stuff and then I guess you were also just really into computers. Yeah the original computer that I you know got my hands on at home was the same one everybody else had. which was the apple to apple to? Yeah Yeah and one of the beautiful things about the apple two was that all of the circuits were discrete circuits that you could understand so you could go in and start to play with those and modify them and reprogram the BIOS and upgrade the system and take it apart put it back together so something happened here around Nineteen Eighty one IBM introduced the IBM PC. And that was sort of a very important moment. Because if you dial back the clock to the late seventies early eighties in this company. IBM had a leadership of the part of the economy referred for to US Information Technology. Unlike any other company at any other time in history they were by far the dominant company so in Ibm mm-hmm introduced the IBM PC. This to me seemed to be a very important moment so I try to understand everything was going on about that and so when you took apart this. IBM PC that was selling for about three thousand dollars. As far as I could tell it was about six hundred dollars. It's worth parts. Wait you bought one and you took it apart just to check the insides out sure. Yeah Yeah what else would you do. So you gotta you gotTa take it apart. How how can you understand it if you don't take it apart philly? Most people buy computers to like you know at that time. He has to do basic you know accounting owning and word processing. You bought it to take part. Well I wanted to understand did and you know to understand it. You have to take it
Snap Shares Jump As Returning Users Boost Revenue
"Chris L. Joining me in studio in the heat of earnings. Palooza is the one and only Abby Mellon thanks for being here is my favorite week of the year and it comes four times a year. I love it. We got like seven hundred companies reporting this week things to talk about all the things to talk about and we're not gonNA talk about all of them. Although there are the huge companies reporting that we're just not going to be able to get to we will talk about the latest from Visa and Chapel we gotTa Start Though with snap shares up sixteen percent this morning after snap lost money in the second quarter just just not as much as everyone was expecting them to lose. What do you think when you look at this company? I mean the the stock has just been insane this year. It has basically tripled in twenty nineteen so we'll we'll get to this quarter in a second but when you look at just that shares of snap tripling in basically six months and change does that get you excited or is this one of those things that you look at anything. Oh my God you you can buy that if you want but I'm not <hes> probably more of the ladder not the former but I do think a little bit of that is that snap was punished pretty pretty harshly I would say in their <hes> market debut and so people were kind of taking their hands off of it fell significantly <hes> I think maybe that was a little bit of an overreaction but I do think it's interesting given the environment that we're currently in with large tech and specifically large social media companies sort of the more scrutinized and you're seeing regulators get involved a little bit more than normal. I do think it's very <hes> a little bit counterintuitive. That snap would be doing this well so we've talked before. For about advertisers essentially looking at Google and facebook as must have is snap moving into that category if only for a certain segment segment of the consumer base out there is this is snap now. If you have a product that you're selling and your target market is people thirteen to thirty four years old a snap now an automatic go-to for you. It's interesting you ask that so I think this turnaround <hes> was Spiegel's idea to stop trying to attract all users and really just focus on engaging specifically with that sort of younger demographic base. I think if you look at pinterest it's maybe kind of a similar idea where it's very wean niche in that. It's <hes> majority women <hes> So do you think focusing rather than fighting. That trend is helpful so you saw their average revenue per user increase to a dollar ninety one versus a dollar eighty four it was expected so pretty significant growth in that and I think maybe a little bit of that is that less advertisers are interested but the ones who are have to be there. You mentioned Evan Spiegel the C._E._O.. It is interesting to see and sort of his tenure as he continues to lead this company and I think you're you're probably right. When you look at the the full like one year chart of this stock I mean it's tripled in two thousand nineteen but really over the past twelve months? It's basically up thirty percent. I mean really got hit hard at the end of last year and it does seem like at least part of what we're seeing in. Two Thousand Nineteen

That's after these tech headlines. The journal reports that snap which was once seen as a viable competitor. To Facebook is struggling after CEO. Evan Spiegel ignored warnings about a redesign that proved unpopular with usership and the share price falling analysts and employees are raising questions about whether his trust your gut management instincts can help pull the company through the journal takes a look at the changes ahead as snap aims to grab more users in and beef up the information it collects in two thousand nineteen Facebook's top conservative takes a new power position on at the social media company. The journal reports that Joel Kaplan has emerged as the sites protector against allegations of political bias, and you often serves as the decisive word internally on hot button, political issues in particular. Mr. Kaplan now has say in whether certain news feed products, get launched an area that has long been the purview of Facebook's engineers and product teams. City University of New York coders hoped to fill Amazon's queens headquarters, New York officials call H Q to a boon to the city's university system which graduates thousands of students with tech degrees. Each year the company's agreement with New York provides a three billion dollars in city and state incentives to Amazon bringing twenty five thousand jobs in the next decade. Amazon also plans to bring seven hundred jobs to Long Island city by twenty nineteen coming up how fortnight triggered an unwinnable war between parents and their kids. The value of fortnight's maker epic has swelled to nearly fifteen billion dollars from less than one billion in less than six years. The Wall Street Journal reported such in October. Furthermore, the takeover game is not only reshaping American spend their time. But also how they communicate. And the Wall Street Journal's Betsy Morris reports that it may also care at family relationships in ways that few if any video games have done before. So what exactly makes this game show powerful in a special journal feature some young players explain the current fortnight hype? Everyone's playing all of our friends like it's everywhere. Toby got it. He didn't really play. He'd never played. It is agree. You should get it. So I downloaded it. And we played it was really fun. The Matthew had it like you got like a week later. Now, we play never got our first win, the congress Cullen going for the next lane next one if they fighting game animated, there's no blood, and I like the fact that it's like. You just jump on a map bat Oreo. It's really immersive to and it's always different it's net. Like every game isn't going to be the same. I just fell in love with it. Right. When they showed it to me. Jamie Madigan author of getting gamers explains. The key social components of the game. That are changing the way young people communicate most of the most popular games like fortnight, and others are social so you're playing within against other people. You're communicating with them. You're talking outside of the game about the matches. You had last night or coordinating schedules? So that you can play together today after school, and it is a much more interactive social experience than it has been in the past. I've a bunch of friends on here that play and they won't get on when gets off one gets on. And then I play with gets on which they keep saying, it's a different way to interact socially now than like, for example. Go into part, I'd say, it's it's really cool because it lets you communicate with people that you don't really see that much. Parents are noticing the change in social behavior. Firsthand fortnight is a big part of. Of his social life, and of what makes them happy these to play more of a variety of things. But at some point it was just fortnight. That's it for him and all his friends you really wants to play with his friends are on. So he's not as interested in playing when they're not on. And then there is the already addictive nature of video games to contend with. And how some say fortnight takes things to a new level people like activities that make them feel like they're mastering something and getting better at it. They like activities that make them feel important to other people to the extent that that activity satisfies those needs people are motivated to keep doing it and come back to it. I sometimes I feel like from. I'd say I play enough via wearing after a couple of months playing you might get a little dicta to it. It hits a lot of buttons with in terms of reward. And we have many kids that we can compare him to there seems to be such a trend in some similarities between the mall in terms of not really. Wanting to get back to it wanting to play it for a long period of time. He just seemed to really be fixated on this game. Even when he wasn't playing it. You get nervous when you see your kid staring at a scream incessantly for four hours. I'm concerned that it's very addictive, and that it takes so much time away from everything else. You're trying to be the good parent and not be too permissive. You don't want this to get out from under you where it's something that you're having constant battles about. And where you feel like as a parent. You don't have a say in any any limit setting with it. The journal notes that research on the impact of video games is inconclusive on one hand it found video games to boost visual acuity processing speed and decision. Making on the other hand studies also link aiming to poor behavior and lower school performance. It's a weighty topic. Again, check out more WSJ for a special feature an in depth look at. The issue.

"Snap Taylor of course the. Creator of Snapchat it's one, of the most dynamic companies out, there it's history of late though has been a little. Bit. Tortured and we. Got more on the story from max chaff gin so Sarah Frier the writer, of the story got received a special invitation to, something called, council which is a sort of regular meeting. They've had I think somewhere around seven hundred so far this year so we're talking about everyday kind of, meeting where a group of sap employees get together and they share and. It's a very kind of. Step is a Los Angeles based company it's a. Very California thing there is a. Sharing stone that they pass around, I think it's a purple amethyst this is something that snaps CEO Evan Spiegel. Learning kind of new age class and has. Brought to the company and the reason why this matters at all besides just being amusing and sort of Weird. Is that sap is really trying desperately to grow up and to. To get better at communication Evan Spiegel, has been, for most of the. Company's history very secretive sort of aloof both from. His own employees and from, the outside world and with this, competition from Facebook and especially Instagram which is a Facebook. Property. You know they're. Having to change and and comically secretive almost I mean in the sense that, the utter lack of transparency even internally much less, to the, outside world has been noted by investors by. Analysts even former employees have talked about this and why is it does it go back to Evan yeah, I mean I think that this was sort of a strange that that. Sanchez had this was a. Company that did not act like a normal social. Media company act more and more. Like I don't know like a, fashion brand or something you know Facebook was in the bay area Snapchat is. In a spoke is in these kind of. Corporate offices Snapchat has historically been in Kind of basically these small. Buildings and some houses even in Venice which is a set of. Hip neighborhood in l. a. And so I think it's sort of all, goes back to the culture and for a while that were I mean that kind of had this kind of cool factor but they've just been. Swallowed both by sort of Facebook's ability to copy them and also, Facebook's sort of capacity of bundling data with these. Products so advertisers on Facebook have been able to target ads very specifically snap has been late to the game on that so let's talk about the Facebook, rivalry because I convened a small group of experts is I was as I was reading this story a couple of teenagers and I was telling them about this and they were saying notably as, users of both that Instagram has done a pretty brilliant job of essentially just copying a bunch of the best. Features Snapchat and they rightly said it's. Grim, only has to be sort of good enough to keep you on the, platform it doesn't even have, to be better yeah it's pretty stunning because you know people even a, couple of years, ago I think thought of Instagram mainly as a full Photo sharing thing I think, you you you know A cute filter. Over your photo and you share this glossy thing and now I think younger people are, seeing it as more of this video sharing platform. Basically see it, as exactly what snap was Instagram's it's called stories which is not. Coincidentally probably the name. Of the staff chat product, that's the same, thing and, and as a result this has been you know this has been a boon to Facebook which has seen traffic on its main, app kind of seemed to flatten, out a bit and it's been bad for, Snapchat which Instagram is. The growth story for Facebook Instagram is growth story it is, the future, for Facebook and snap has kind. Of you know meanwhile. Cast about for various, things they were developing hardware there were those glasses the that that. Were really cool but but didn't really take off and now it feels like. Snapchat is becoming a little bit more like Facebook they are starting to try to give..
Snapchat lost 3 million daily users in the past three months
"Welcome back, fast money, snap reversing now falling after hours. Let's head back to Julia in Los Angeles. So tell us what's it? Got the stock moving all around Julia. What's going on here? Well, snap reported earnings and revenue that beat expectations and Prince Alwaleed announced on Twitter that he invested tuner and fifty million dollars to acquire two point, three percents stake in Snapchat. He tweeted this video of himself and CEO, Evan Spiegel, but snaps while snaps top and bottom line beat, I set the stock soaring that was despite the fact that the company reported daily active users that fell from the prior quarter and disappointed expectations, and the stock moved into negative the negative and gave up its gains during the earnings call. Now, in addition to reporting those daily user numbers that declined from the prior quarter, the company also gave revenue guidance that was lower than analysts expectations and on the call. The company warned that it won't give daily user guidance for the third quarter and warned that third. Order growth rates generally trend down for users. Now, Evan Spiegel saying that monthly users are at their highest level ever with one hundred million and the US and Canada alone. While daily users, he says, suffered from the company's redesign. We saw a two percent decline in our daily active users. This was primarily driven by a slightly lower frequency of use someone. Our user base due to the disruption caused by redesign. It's been approximately six months since we broadly rolled out the redesign of our application. And we've been working hard to rate and improve snapshot based on the feedback from our community analysts. Michael Packer telling us it Spiegel's comments imply the daily active users could be down again in the third quarter saying that the company was consistently evasive when asked questions on the reasons why the user numbers could continue decline. Pector also noted that stock grants were disclosed today that represents two hundred million additional shares so that Wedbush will have to adjust their valuation to account for them. They expanded shared count. Now, one point, four, eight billion instead of one point, two, seven billion saying that might be spooking some Scott back over to you or Juliette. Thank you so much divorce in Los Angeles how you wanna guys want to trade this, Facebook, Instagram? Yep, exactly. They disruption came from Instagram stories. I mean, that's what happened with. This company was going around and they were prepping the street for this. They were getting numbers lower the past month month and a half. So I think they prepped for this to try to get it down and beat on the red side. And they just pre-announced again, numbers gonna be worse. Next water stay away from see. I look at it and say the sucks percent, whatever sucks on percent and half last four quarters stocks move twenty two percent of downside and move fifty percent to the upside. It's advertised moves. It's really not moving right now. So what does that mean? If this goes green tomorrow? I don't think you get in the way of it. I mean, I think the quarter was decent guidance was not great, but if this can somehow go from negative the positive during the day tomorrow on big volume, I think this sets up for what you saw with Twitter from that move from fifteen and a half to the levels that we saw over the last few nice time to drop like some ears and a big tongue on you and why. User of the product. It's not my John then change on the Saudi stock, not see. That's so I should be consistent. I mean, if he's making an investment there, I said they, I said, the tesla investment, the Saudi investment for tesla was the same thing as the fed and the s&p. I'll say the same thing here for snap. Maybe they haven't embedded put now as well. Okay. From one new media company to another Roku also sets report after the bell tomorrow, and the options market is implying some big moves on those results. Let's go to our very own Dan. Nathan who's out in San Francisco with more on that, hey, Dan, hey, Scotty, how are you? Yeah, the options market is implying about a fifteen percent move in either direction for Roku. The company has reported three quarters since going public last year and averaged it's moved about twenty five percent, but call volume was running pretty hot today..

"The data privacy practices some companies just took their data processing practices and jammed them in the terms of service and then they said because our data processing prices are in the terms of service and that's a contract with the user were compliant with gdp are right and that's why people got sued on the first day judy pr was enacted right and so i think for me it's very clear this is a long road it's a road that's going to be litigated but i i think if you look at the shift and you look at the appreciation that people have for user privacy and how fundamentally important it is to humanity i think we're just getting started in the way that people are gonna have to change their businesses to what because it's all predicated on that well i think it's important to point out that there wasn't any russian manipulation of south chat they just use that there are alternatives and that the way that you treat user privacy is really important for us from that goes back to when we were in my dorm room when it was just me and bobby when there were three or four people using our products we cared about data retention right and it's taken seven years for people in the technology industry to take a look at what we've done getting rid of personal information rather than storing it hoarding it forever yeah and to say hey that that actually kind of makes sense and so i think for us it's exciting to me that seven years later after we built our business on this idea of data data minimization effectively that the rest of the industry is starting to to embrace that and i think that will that will have a positive impact you expect a lot of regulation coming.
