Big data analytics falls under the "strategic imperatives" umbrella at IBM, and it accounts for a key component of the company's impressive $15.1 billion annual cloud revenue run-rate. At 2.15%, Microsoft's dividend isn't quite at the IBM or Intel level, but with its big data push in full swing, growth and income investors who put its shares in their portfolios can enjoy the best of both worlds. Data hosting via Microsoft's Azure platform, which grew 97% last quarter, also drove a 43% increase in commercial Office 365 revenue and a 74% rise in Dynamics CRM sales.

Is Boone Pickens Is Wrong On Natural Gas?

TSLA

Bloomberg is attempting to make the case that Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk and cheap gasoline prices have driven natural gas away as an economically viable vehicle fuel. Dallas Area Rapid Transit, which has 660 vehicles in its fleet powered by natural gas, has extended its operation and maintenance contract with Clean Energy Fuels. Energy is being extracted from landfills and other sustainable, renewable sources to supply existing natural gas fueling stations with the clean fuel.

Social networks should treat far-right extremists like Islamic State

FB

Social networks should treat far-right extremists like Islamic State. But if it was a different violent extremist group – say, the so-called Islamic State – there would be no debate. Stifling expression, even hateful expression, should never be taken lightly, and tech companies should implement consistent and transparent policies for removing any kind of content.

BT's mobile unit wades into 5G battle against Three

BT-A

BT’S mobile arm EE is preparing to go into battle with rival operator Three over billions of pounds worth of airwaves, amid fears of delays to 5G network upgrade plans. Three’s planned judicial ­review aims to impose tighter restrictions on the share of the airwaves EE is allowed to buy. Its challenge to the auction rules is focused on the higher 5G frequency, where Ofcom plans to impose a 37pc cap on the overall share of the airwaves an operator is allowed to own. It has also urged ­Ofcom to consider bundling the ­airwaves into a 5G super-auction alongside other frequencies due to be made available in the next few years.
