Dreaming Up Einstein


Salesforce isn’t waiting for Dreamforce to begin the drumbeat over its artificial intelligence offering which is — or will be — called “Einstein.” There is so much to discuss about this turn of events that it’s hard to begin, so rather than starting at a conventional jumping-off point I’ll start with the name. You couldn’t have lived at any point in the 20th century and not have some idea of who Albert Einstein was. For most of that time he was regarded as special — a savant, one who could see things that no one else could.

Alibaba's Treasure May Not Open Doors for Yahoo


The market is waiting with bated breath to see the exact size of Alibaba’s IPO, but investors in Yahoo, which owns about 23 percent of Alibaba’s stock, don’t seem impressed. Yahoo’s shares closed Wednesday at $34.07, down 6.6 percent. Yahoo’s stake is worth about $26 billion based on the fair value of about $109 billion Alibaba assigned to its shares in March. Yahoo will sell 40 percent of its Alibaba shares, or 208 million, and might get $10 billion or more. Perhaps investors are concerned because they don’t see much of a future for Yahoo.
