Facebook, Apple, And Microsoft Gang Up On Google — And It Couldn't Happen At A Worse Time

Image
Back in the old days, the big bad company in tech that all the other companies teamed-up against was Microsoft. 
Microsoft was the evil empire.
So, Apple and Google worked together to squash Microsoft.
Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs used to mentor Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Google CEO Eric Schmidt used to sit on the Apple board.
This is no longer the case. 
These days, the common enemy is Google.
In recent years, there have been a number of explicit and implicit partnerships between the three biggest companies in consumer technology — Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook.
Some examples:
Microsoft invested in Facebook at a $15 billion valuation back in 2007.
Facebook generates massive ad revenues through its iOS app. Conceivably, Apple could ask for a piece of that business. It has not.
Apple has integrated Facebook deeply into iOS.
Microsoft powers Apple's Siri. All those Siri queries are improving Microsoft's machine-learning capabilities versus Google's.

5 Reasons You Should Have Sex With Your Husband Every Night

Image
I was getting a manicure the first time I learned that not all wives want to, ahem, go for a roll in the hay with their husbands. I was 16 and had picked out orange nail polish (oh, sixteen). I had a book with me but it wasn't long before I found another source of entertainment. In-between buffings and polishings, the two women next to me talked about how much their husbands wanted IT and how little they wanted to give IT.
For a girl that had not even been asked out on a date this was a whole new world. I had a suspicion that their experience was more realistic than the articles I sneaky read in Cosmo while getting my hair done at the salon. (I am supposed to put my hand WHERE? while simultaneously doing WHAT?) So I kept my eyes on my book, let the words blur into lines and listened closely.
"Doesn't he know how tired I am by the end of the day? As if after the kids are finally asleep I have the energy to do anything but sit down and watch some TV."
"For me, it…

3 Money Mistakes You Must Fix to Get Rich

Image
I get a lot of questions about how to get rich, and I always give the same answer.
Don’t spend too much. Mostly save. Always invest.
Seems simple enough, right? Yet so many people do the exact opposite -- invest poorly, spend way too much, save almost nothing, and remain willfully ignorant about their finances.
Why? Because they don’t understand their relationship to money.
The first step in changing money habits is taking a cold hard look at your financial input and output. Here’s what you need to do: boil your money matters down to one simple number by adding up all your earnings and subtracting all your expenditures over three months. I call this your 90-day number.
Once you write that 90-day number down you’ll be faced with one of two truths.
Your number is positive. Congratulations, you’re one of the few people taking in more money than you spend!Your number is in the negatives, and like the majority of men and women, you spend more than you make. The good news is that n…
