Still, the stock is down by over 50% since its 2015 high, and this suggests that investor sentiment is relatively weak in my view. Looking ahead, I think the new BT CEO will have a tough job in turning the business around. That’s in spite of the company spending heavily in areas such as sports rights and mobile, with the business not yet making those investments count in terms of their impact on the bottom line. A focus on efficiency and improving the consumer aspects of the business could lead to improving operational and financial performance. However, a new CEO may look to make further changes, and this could cause a period of instability in my opinion. Therefore, in the near term there could further volatility for the stock. But in the long term I believe that the BT share price could offer upside potential.

Google will fix its Camera bug that fails to save photos. One issue some have noticed -- across a range of devices including some non-Pixel or Nexus phones -- is a tendency to skip the important step of actually saving a photo after it's taken. Tonight Google responded, with a statement to Engadget that said simply "We will be rolling out a software update in the coming weeks to address the rare case of a photo not properly saving." The company did not address where the issue lies, but based on user reports it seems like there may be problem with waiting for HDR to finish processing before switching to another app, so an update to the company's Google Camera software could fix it. If we get more specific information about what the fix is and where it will reach, we will update this post.
Instagram is now the most-used social media platform among teens, according to research firm Piper Jaffray. The findings, part of the firm's fall 2018 "Taking Stock With Teens" survey, is the first time Instagram has edged out Snapchat for the top spot. Interestingly, the same report found Snapchat had a significant advantage with teens in likability: 46 percent of teens surveyed rated Snapchat as their favorite platform, compared with 32 percent for Instagram. Still, declines in usage among teens would be a worrying sign for the company, which is already dealing with declines in usage following an unpopular redesign. If Snapchat is now losing its edge with teen users, one of its most important demographics, it would be a serious blow for the company.
