Google no longer lets you change domains to search different countries

  Google no longer lets you change domains to search different countries You’ve long been able to get localized search results by visiting Google at different domains — like for the US, for England, or for Japan — but that won’t be the case any more after today. =Fortunately, it’ll still be possible to escape your country’s results. You’ll be able to change locations, you’ll just have to do it through the settings menu at the bottom of (which I’m willing to bet you’ve never noticed before because it’s hidden in the corner on the desktop and requires you to scroll down on mobile; I didn’t know it existed before today). By going to settings and then “search settings,” you’ll be able to pick a new location.

Samsung announces three new CEOs and posts record profits

  Samsung announces three new CEOs and posts record profits Samsung Electronics CEO Kwon Oh-hyun unexpectedly announced his plans to step down earlier this month, citing the need for new leadership amid “unprecedented crisis,” and the company has now announced his replacements. Yoon Boo-keun (BK Yoon) and Shin Jong-kyun (JK Shin) are resigning altogether from their previous co-CEO roles after stepping back from direct control in 2015. It’s not clear whether any one of the new leaders will have an elevated status similar to Kwon’s — Samsung’s announcement describes the new arrangement as “maintaining the current three co-CEO management structure.

T-Mobile, under charismatic CEO John Legere, keeps hitting home runs, already reporting it that added 1.3 million net customers in the third quarter - the 18th time in a row it has achieved the feat.

T-Mobile reported revenues in the third quarter that topped $10 billion for the first time, up 8 percent.

The picture for Deutsche Telekom group on Thursday is likely to be different, with analysts on average forecasting group revenues of 18.4 billion euros ($21.4 billion) - a year-on-year gain of just 1.6 percent.

That would reflect barely positive growth in Telekom's crowded and heavily regulated home market, where sales rose just 0.4 percent in the first half, and at its European holdings that were ahead by just 1.5 percent.

Instagram now supports three right-to-left languages

  Instagram now supports three right-to-left languages You can post and comment in more than 24 different languages via Instagram already, but they've all been left-to-right languages like English. Changing your language setting is pretty straightforward. Simply go to your Instagram profile in the app and tap on the gear icon. Scroll down and tap Language (just below Settings). You can then choose the language you'd like to use. The new language support stops short of translation features, however; if you're using, say English and see a post in Farsi, you won't be able to automatically translate it in-app.

Deutsche Telekom, which has toyed with options for its U.S. business for years, put a brave face on the unraveling of the deal on Saturday night, saying T-Mobile would continue its successful growth strategy.

"We supported our American subsidiary to invest more than $40 billion over the last years, thus building a basis for strong growth in the upcoming years," CEO Tim Hoettges said.


But some investors wonder whether the best years may now be behind T-Mobile, whose shares have risen ninefold from the low they hit after the global financial crisis to a peak of $68 in June.

"I'd just love them to sell it," one UK-based fund manager who holds Deutsche Telekom stock said last week as reports surfaced that the T-Mobile-Sprint talks were in trouble.

At T-Mobile's latest share price, Deutsche Telekom's 64 percent stake would be worth $31 billion.

Deutsche Telekom reported a 13 per cent increase in first-quarter revenue to €16.8 billion owing to a weak euro and strong growth from T - Mobile US, in which it has a 66 per cent stake, although net profit fell by 57 per cent from €1.8 billion ( billion) to €0.8 billion.

"There's a tendency to run things for ever, sometimes, and then you end up selling at the wrong times," the fund manager added.

Together, T-Mobile and Sprint would have had about 130 million customers, putting a merged entity a close third in the United States behind market leaders AT&T and Verizon.

Alone, T-Mobile has 70.7 million customers, requiring a lot more good quarters to close the gap on its own.

Lacking sufficient scale and running a mobile-first strategy, T-Mobile may face challenges if Sprint, controlled by Japan's Softbank Group, revives its efforts to hook up with a U.S. cable firm, according to a top-10 Telekom shareholder.

An approach by Softbank chief Masayoshi Son was rebuffed in July by Charter Communications.
