There are concerns in Europe over how Internet companies such as Facebook and Amazon use the huge amounts of personal data they acquire.Internet platforms such as Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! will be the subject of a widespread inquiry by European regulators to determine whether they are transparent enough in how they display search results. The inquiry will seek to address concerns of European business and politicians about the dominance of U.S. tech giants and whether there is a level playing field for European firms. However, it is not an antitrust inquiry which can lead to fines of up to 10 percent of a company's global sales. In a draft of the Commission's strategy for creating a digital single market, seen by Reuters, it says it will "carry out a comprehensive investigation and consultation on the role of platforms, including the growth of the sharing economy."

Sony Corp on Monday unveiled a new high-end Xperia handset featuring an aluminium frame and a 5.2-inch screen, showing it is still in the smartphone race even as it scales down its struggling mobile operations. The launch of the new flagship model comes amid a painful restructuring at the Japanese consumer electronics giant which has thrown the future of its smartphone division into doubt, with top executives saying an exit cannot be ruled out. But as the company focuses on cutting costs rather than growing its mobile market, the division still needs investment in new products and marketing to maintain Sony's brand and hold off a more rapid deterioration.

Financial technology company SunGard Data Systems Inc is preparing to appoint financial advisers to explore a sale that could value it at as much as $10 billion, including debt, people familiar with the matter said on Friday. SunGard has asked investment banks vying for advisory mandates to prepare for interviews as early as next week, the people said. The company plans to simultaneously explore an outright sale as well as a potential initial public offering, the people added. Private equity-owned SunGard decided to explore a sale after it was approached by at least one other company about a potential takeover, one of the people added. The identity of that company could not be immediately learned. The sources asked not to be identified because the deliberations are confidential. A SunGard spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. One of the largest leveraged buyouts that preceded the 2008 financial crisis, SunGard is one of the longest-held investments in private equity history. Its owners have struggled to boost the company's value to the point where they can cash out and make a decent return. More»

China's e-commerce giant, Alibaba Group, has been fined 800,000 yuan ($129,000) by the price bureau in eastern Zhejiang province for violations by third-party sellers during promotions on its e-commerce platforms. Since Alibaba turned "Singles' Day", a November 11 Chinese response to Valentine's Day, into an online shopping festival in 2009, the event has grown to similar proportions as Cyber Monday and Black Friday in the United States. Sales of more than $9 billion were achieved at last year's event, and the company has copyrighted the phrase "Double 11", a reference to the date (11/11), which in turn, refers to the status of single people.

A widely reported Russian cyber-spying campaign against diplomatic targets in the United States and elsewhere has been using two previously unknown flaws in software to penetrate target machines, a security company investigating the matter said on Saturday. FireEye Inc (FEYE.O), a prominent U.S. security company, said the espionage effort took advantage of holes in Adobe Systems Inc’s (ADBE.O) Flash software for viewing active content and Microsoft Corp's (MSFT.O) ubiquitous Windows operating system.

Apple Inc. is planning to launch its mobile payments service in Canada this autumn, marking the start of its international expansion of Apple Pay, according to people familiar with the matter. The company AAPL, -1.13% is in negotiations with Canada’s six biggest banks about a potential November launch of the service which would enable mobile payments for both credit and debit cards using iPhones and the forthcoming Apple Watch, those people said. The banks are open to an agreement, but they aren’t happy with Apple’s fee proposals and are concerned about security vulnerabilities like the ones that U.S. banks experienced as they rolled out the service, the people said. Lenders in discussions with Apple include Royal Bank of Canada RY, -0.96% , Toronto-Dominion Bank TD, -0.78% , Bank of Nova Scotia BNS, -0.15% , Bank of Montreal BMO, -0.73% , Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce CM, -0.56% and National Bank of Canada NBC, +4.86% , the people said. Together, those banks account for more than 90% of retail bank accounts, which could provide Apple with near ubiquity upon launch if final agreements are reached. Canada is an attractive market for Apple Pay because of the high level of iPhone market share. Research firm Catalyst said iPhones account for about one-third of the Canadian smartphone market, compared with the iPhone’s roughly 20% share globally. Additionally, unlike in the U.S., the vast majority of Canadian merchants are already equipped with machines that accept contactless payments through near-field communication, a prerequisite for Apple Pay.

WikiLeaks on Thursday published more than 30,000 documents and 170,000 emails leaked from a cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment last November. The infamous whistle-blowing site ordered the documents into a searchable archive available to journalists, activists or anyone else. The website, which rose to fame publishing damning documents regarding the U.S. military’s activities in Afghanistan, claims the documents are newsworthy because of the film studio’s international and domestic associations. “Now published in a fully searchable format the Sony Archives offer a rare insight into the inner workings of a large, secretive multinational corporation,” WikiLeaks claimed in a release. Sony executives and world-famous actors and actresses were embarrassed by a series of emails leaked in the weeks following the hacking, which has been largely attributed to the North Korean government. Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal resigned in the wake of the scandal. More»

Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp. have updated their search partnership to offer more flexibility in how the results are presented and how the advertising teams are managed. The news comes after months of negotiation over a deal that has caused friction between the two tech giants. Shares of Microsoft MSFT, -0.41% slipped 7 cents in morning trading to $42.18, while Yahoo YHOO, -0.15% shares added 7 cents to $45.80. The new terms update the original 2009 agreement, created by the predecessors to the current chief executives, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella and Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer. Under the original 10-year agreement, Microsoft provided search services on computers for Yahoo, and paid Yahoo a percentage of Bing revenue delivered from the latter company’s searches. Microsoft controls the technology underpinning searches across both companies’ sprawling universe of websites. Yahoo at times has chafed at elements of the partnership, which generates 37% of its revenue. Now, Yahoo will have increased flexibility on how the results are presented on desktops and mobile devices. Yahoo, though, will continue serving Bing ads and results for a majority of its desktop search traffic. More»
