Should Google Be Worried About Apple Intelligence🤖

Apple and Google: Big Tech Rivals

Apple and Google’s relationship can be classified into many things: friends, collaborators, enemies, and competitors.

It’s a strained partnership that pits them together and against each other amongst their various departments.

They have worked hand in hand when it comes to search and online advertising; however, this may now change as Apple looks to partner with OpenAI to bring ChatGPT to the iPhone.

To say that things have not been difficult for Google would be inaccurate.

With many AI misfires for Google this year, people often overlook the significance of the landmark antitrust lawsuit against Google’s search engine dominance.

Apple was featured heavily in this lawsuit.

Pivoting at the perfect time, an opportunity has fallen to them at the most convenient hour as AI looks to change everything that we know about search and the way that people seek out information online.

The Swan’s Selections🦢

📺Tesla Vote Passes. Tesla Shareholders Approve Elon Musk's $56 Billion Pay Deal. The Tesla board won approval for Musk's pay package Thursday with 77% of the total vote of shares. Here is why this was bound to happen.

📺Google Debuts Ad Streaming Network. Advertisers can now place unskippable in-stream ads on more than 125 live channels, adding yet another revenue source for the search engine business. With over 20 million monthly Google TV devices, this can set up a new healthy revenue stream for the company.

🔀240 Year Old Rebrand. Bank of New York Mellon was founded 240 years ago by founding father Alexander Hamilton. This week it was announced, the oldest U.S. bank is getting a new name. Bank of New York Mellon will now be known as ‘BNY’.

💰Everything Must Go Sale! New York Community Bancorp acquired the assets of the failed Signature Bank this week. The estimated total fair value of these assets is $37.8 billion - ~$24.9B in cash and cash equivalents and ~$11.7B in loans and leases. NYCB also assumed an estimated fair value of $35.7B in liabilities - ~$33.5B in customer deposits.

🏦Wells Fargo Fires Employees. Who would have thought that faking your keyboard strokes could get you fired? That is what happened this week at Wells Fargo: bankers were caught slacking on the job, likely with a $20 mouse mover from Amazon.
