In September 2005, it underwent another transition under its then editor-in-chief and publisher, Jason Pontin, to a form resembling the historical magazine.

    Europe hits Google with record $5 billion antitrust fine, appeal ahead

    European antitrust regulators fined Google a record 4.34 billion euro ($5 billion) on Wednesday and ordered it to stop using its popular Android mobile operating system to block rivals, a ruling which the U.S. tech company said it would appeal. The penalty is nearly double the previous record of 2.4 billion euros which Google was ordered to pay last year after its online shopping search service was deemed to be unfair to competitors. It represents just over two weeks of revenue for Google parent Alphabet Inc and would scarcely dent the company's cash reserves of $102.9 billion.

    Is Blackberry’s Software Bet Crumbling?

    BlackBerry (BB) has focused on software and services as its core business since it lost ground to Apple and Samsung (SSNFL) in the smartphone market. Samsung was the world’s top smartphone company last year after shipping more than 321 million units, according to Gartner. Despite BlackBerry’s pinning its hopes on its software and services business, investors appeared to question the company’s bet on the business after it reported its results for the fiscal first quarter of 2019 (which ended on May 1), which fell compared to a year ago.

    Two become one? Planemakers work on tech to cut pilot numbers

    By Victoria Bryan and Jamie Freed FARNBOROUGH, England/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Airplane manufacturers are working to adapt jets to reduce the number of pilots needed for long-haul flights and to build new cockpits designed for a single aviator in order to ease a global pilot shortage and cut airline costs. Airbus SE and Thales SA expect the number of cockpit crew on long-haul flights, typically three or four, could be reduced to two from 2023 thanks to new technology to reduce pilot workload. Reducing crew on long-range looks to be the most accessible step because there is another pilot onboard," Jean-Brice Dumont, Airbus head of engineering, told Reuters at the Farnborough Airshow.
