Amazon.com Inc's message to investors has always been clear: trust in founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. But after more than a year of mostly disappointing quarterly results, that faith is being tested. Some on Wall Street wonder if Amazon may have bitten off more than it can chew. After an unusually busy first half of the year that saw the online retailer spend on developing everything from mobile phones and Hollywood-style production to grocery deliveries, investors are ready to see it curtail its ambitions and start delivering sustainable profits. Or at least offer evidence that Bezos' ever-increasing investments are going to soon generate appealing returns for its main online retailing business. "It does get frustrating when they continue to spend quarter after quarter and they don't let the revenue flow through," said Michael Scanlon, who manages $3.5 billion at Manulife Asset Management and holds shares of Amazon. "I'm definitely ready for profits." Others argue that easing off on the throttle now may thwart its goal of becoming the Wal-Mart of online retail. That is particularly the case as China's Alibaba - which handles more ecommerce than Amazon and eBay Inc combined - slowly develops a U.S. consumer presence and prepares for an initial public offering in the U.S. More»

Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O) will buy mobile analytics startup Flurry to beef up a fast-growing mobile advertising business that still lags Google Inc's (GOOG.O) and Facebook Inc's (FB.O) in scale. Six-year-old Flurry uses analytics to help target ads at consumers by monitoring activity on more than half a million apps on some 1.4 billion mobile devices around the world, Yahoo said in a statement on Monday. The startup provides information to help marketers and brands more easily reach their desired audiences, Yahoo said. Yahoo did not cite a price tag, but a source familiar with the matter said the Internet company is paying several hundred million dollars. Tech blog re/code earlier reported that rough amount. More»

Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) has appointed Katie Stanton its new media chief, placing the former Google executive at the heart of its crucial relationships with Hollywood and the global media industry, a source with knowledge of the move said on Monday. Stanton, formerly head of international strategy, fills in for Chloe Sladden, who left the online messaging service as part of a recent management shake-up that also included the departure of former chief operating officer Ali Rowghani. Twitter has reported lackluster user and usage growth for the last couple of quarters, and its stock price has nearly halved in the last six months. Stanton will now oversee Twitter's continuing efforts to court TV networks, Hollywood studios and other media companies around the world. The service in recent years has become a popular platform for promoting the content of media companies, and for viewers to interact around programs and live events. More»

Facebook Inc wants its users in India to hang up on advertisers. The Internet social networking company is testing a new type of ad in the country that allows mobile phone users to click a button that calls a brand advertiser, immediately hangs up and then receives a return call. The return call delivers pre-recorded audio messages about everything from sponsored cricket scores to information about shopping discounts, minimizing data charges for the user. The so-called “missed call” ad was specially created by Facebook to appeal to users in the world’s second-most populous country, and potentially in other emerging markets. Facebook has more than 100 million users in India, with the majority accessing the service on so-called feature phones, which lack touchscreens and other capabilities of higher-end smartphones. The ads are part of Facebook’s effort to bolster its business in countries such as Brazil, India and Indonesia, which could help Facebook boost its overall revenue. More»

Google Inc is considering an investment in a new cable across the Pacific Ocean, the Wall Street Journal reported citing people familiar with the matter. The move comes as technology companies send an increasing amount of traffic across private networks, the report said. (on.wsj.com/1isOMAv) Google took a stake in a similar $300 million cable in 2010, according to the report. The Internet search company would use the new subsea cable to connect data centers in Oregon and Japan, the report said. Private networks are commonly used for home, office and businesses, as they provide security for vital information and cannot be accessed by devices outside the network. A public network is a type of network where anyone can access and or connect to other networks or the Internet through it. A lot of Google's bandwidth is reserved for its private 'B4' network, which transmits emails, YouTube videos among other data, the report said. The network carries more traffic than the public-facing one the company uses to transmit search results to the Internet, the WSJ reported. More»

Several Egyptian human rights groups have brought a court case against a recent government decision to introduce a new security system designed to monitor social networking sites. Earlier in June, the interior ministry -- the body responsible for the police -- said it would implement a social media surveillance programme to track security threats such as terrorism, explosives manufacturing and assassination operations. According to a request for bids drawn up by the ministry and leaked by a local newspaper, the ministry also wants to track online information about a variety of topics it deems negative including contempt of religion, libel and defamation, public opinion and traditions, as well as content "against public norms". In a joint statement on Wednesday, eight rights groups strongly condemned the "illegitimate and unconstitutional approach the ministry is adopting to spy on citizens." They said the proposed system constitutes a "serious breach of the foundations of justice" and "an infringement of freedoms and rights." The groups -- which include the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies, the Association for Freedom of Thought and Expression and the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights -- said the lawsuit was filed on Tuesday to demand the cancellation of the government's decision.

Amazon.com Inc's newest mobile device, a smartphone that may sport a 3D screen, is the retailer's latest attempt to exert its influence over the way consumers shop online. Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos will preside over a mystery launch on Wednesday near its Seattle campus. Industry observers predict the arrival of a long-rumored smartphone after years of development. It is unclear if a 3D display, as widely reported, is enough to help the new entree stand out in a crowded field dominated by Apple Inc's seven-year-old iPhone and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd Galaxy devices. Three-quarters of U.S. consumers online already own a smartphone, according to online data tracking service comScore. But its introduction reflects how smartphones and tablets are fast becoming how many consumers view and buy items online. Mobile commerce grew at almost twice the rate of online retail during the first quarter, according to comScore. More»

Egypt has asked YouTube to remove a video of a woman being sexually assaulted during a rally in Cairo's Tahrir Square supporting the country's newly elected president. A spokesman for President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said the request was made by the Egyptian embassy in Washington. The woman asked for the video to be taken down when Mr Sisi visited her in hospital on Wednesday, he said. YouTube has not yet responded to news of the request. The graphic video, which apparently shows a woman being stripped naked and attacked in the capital's Tahrir Square, went viral earlier this week. A string of assaults during the recent celebrations have caused uproar. More»

Google and other internet companies find themselves in a quandary over how to strike a balance between privacy and freedom of information as the top world search engine took a first step towards upholding an EU privacy ruling. Google moved overnight to put up an online form that will allow European citizens to request that links to obsolete information be taken down - its first response to the ruling by Europe's top court on "the right to be forgotten". The ruling on May 13 upheld a 1995 European law on data protection and ordered Google to remove links to a 1998 newspaper article about the repossession of a Spanish man's home. ] That puts Google and other internet companies in the position of having to interpret the court's broad criteria for information that is "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant" as well as developing criteria for distinguishing public figures from private individuals. After putting up the online form in the early hours of Friday, Google received 12,000 requests across Europe, sometimes averaging 20 per minute, by late in the day, the company said. More»

Omnicom Group Inc's (OMC.N) media services division signed a deal worth $230 million with Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) that will integrate Omnicom's automated ad buying unit Accuen with Twitter's mobile ad exchange MoPub. The two-year deal will lock in ad rates and inventory access for Omnicom agencies and will also give Omnicom a "first look" at new ad units and opportunities being developed by the microblogging site. The deal is expected to drive better pricing and targeting, said Jonathan Schaaf, president of U.S. Digital Investment for Omnicom Media Group. "Twitter's been a major advertising partner for our clients in the past...(Omnicom) wanted to form a closer business relationship with Twitter that extends beyond just media buying." More»
