Highlights of Apple’s Black Friday Week

During Black Friday week, Apple stock moved 1% lower. Here are some highlights of the Apple Maven’s coverage over the past four trading days.

What moved Apple’s stock 3% lower on Monday

On Monday, November 23, Apple shares had their worst day of the past three weeks. A shift away from large-cap growth stocks and some tough love from Wall Street may help to explain the decline in share price. 

  • Commission waiver: Apple extended its App Store commission discount to providers of digital classes and events from December 2020 to June 2021.
  • A bad apple: Apple chief security officer was accused of offering to donate 200 iPads to the Santa Clara Sheriff’s Office in exchange for four concealed carry permits.
  • A bit of tough love from one Wall Street expert. Credit Suisse’s Matthew Cabral, who has a “hold” rating on the stock, released a research note on Monday.

The arrangement was postponed on Saturday, one day before it was due to launch, after Hong Kong reported a jump in coronavirus cases. Authorities and aviation experts have said the bubble would provide a blueprint for quarantine-free travel before a vaccine is widely available.

“There is no doubt that there are many challenges around it,” said Singapore hotelier Marcus Hanna, who had taken bookings from Hong Kong tourists and hopes for similar arrangements with major markets like mainland

High school football highlights get boost from social media

“To be the one to make that play or to be a part of that play is just super cool to see and just something that you know, in the social media era, you’ll have to show your kids and people you interact with for the rest of your life,” said Marshall, who also remembers hanging out with friends afterward and not sleeping a wink that night.

The annals of prep football history are incomplete — often recounted years later through folk tales and stretches of truth. Generations of proud former athletes retell stories about their varsity days with a sort of blissful nostalgia, reliving nights only they were there to experience. This generation won’t have to do that. With the growth of technology and the increased exposure of high school sports, particularly for elite leagues such as the WCAC, there are digital receipts.

“I take pride in re-watching it

The Technology 202: YouTube alternative Rumble highlights conservatives’ move to more hands-off social networks

Rumble chief executive Chris Pavlovski tells me in an interview the company has seen a surge in new users since Election Day. He anticipates the company will close out the month with about 80 million unique users, up from about 60 million in October and 40 million midsummer. The company’s app has been installed about 375,000 times in the last seven days, according estimates from data firm Sensor Tower. That’s a 12 percent increase over the number of installs the company was seeing in the seven days leading up to the 2020 election, the firm says. 

Rumble has decided to take a far more hands-off approach to content moderation than others. 

Pavlovski describes his approach to content moderation as similar to the larger tech companies “ten years ago.” Rumble’s terms of service prohibit certain forms of obscene content, such as pornography, nudity or child exploitation, as well as videos

Pandorabots’ Bot Battle highlights lack of industrywide metrics for open domain AI

Emerging technology fields need industrywide metrics to measure progress. When you’re a pun-loving chatbot startup called Pandorabots and you want to call for better metrics, you put on a flashy Bot Battle. The Bot Battle consisted of two virtual beings chatting 24 hours a day, seven days a week for two weeks (unlike humans, AIs never tire). Viewers were invited to vote on the better chatbot.

The first contestant, “Mark Zuckerb0rg,” is based on Facebook’s Blenderbot. He’s a terse figure who wears a “Make Facebook Great Again” hat and doesn’t shy away from intolerant opinions like “I don’t like feminists.” The Pandorabots chatbot Kuki is arguably more eloquent. But she’s a politician, often taking the conversation back to her comfort zone and delivering the same quips again and again. The winner? Kuki, with 79% of the votes and 40,000 views. But Pandorabots says the real aim of the Bot Battle
