    Apple’s maxed-out Mac Pro costs $50,000, we came up with better ways to spend that money

    Yesterday Apple’s redesigned, revamped Mac Pro went on sale. This is Apple’s first significant Pro-level desktop upgrade in a long time, but it comes at a price. A fully maxed out Mac Pro costs $52,000 Mac Pro. Well, $52,599, to be precise. And that DOESN’T include the $5,000 for a Pro Display XDR, or its $1,000 stand. We did some math, and think it's important you know that for that price, you could by over 2,000 Baby Yoda plush dolls. We trust you know how to best spend your money.

    Facebook, Google Drop Out of Top 10 ‘Best Places to Work’ List

    (Bloomberg) -- Big tech companies like Facebook Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google, long seen as some of the world’s most desirable workplaces offering countless perks and employee benefits, are losing some of their shine.The Silicon Valley companies dropped out of the Top 10 “best places to work” in the U.S., according to Glassdoor’s annual rankings released Tuesday. HubSpot Inc., a cloud-computing software company, grabbed the No. 1 ranking while tech firms DocuSign Inc. and Ultimate Software were three and eight, respectively.Facebook, which has been rated as the “best place to work” three times in the past 10 years, was ranked 23rd. It’s the social-media company’s lowest position since it first made the list in 2011 as the top-rated workplace. Facebook, based in Menlo Park, California, was ranked seventh last year.Google, voted “best place to work” in 2015 and a Top-10 finisher the previous eight years, came in at No. 11 on Glassdoor’s list. Apple Inc., once a consistent Top-25 finisher, was ranked 84th. Amazon Inc., which has never been known for a positive internal culture, failed to make the list for the 12th straight year.Microsoft Corp. was one of the lone big technology companies to jump in the rankings. The Redmond, Washington-based software company moved to No. 21 from 34 a year ago. A few technology companies made the list for the first time, including SurveyMonkey at No. 33, Dell Technologies Inc. at No. 67 and Slack Technologies Inc. at No. 69.Twenty companies on the list have their headquarters in the San Francisco Bay Area, more than any other metro area, Glassdoor said.The annual list ranks companies using employee reviews on areas such as compensation, benefits, culture and senior management. Many of the big tech companies, including Facebook and Google, have been criticized this year for a myriad of issues, and in some cases employees have publicly opposed executive decisions.At Google, employees have protested against the company on a number of topics, including the company’s “intimidation” tactics against worker organizers. The results of an internal employee poll at the internet search giant, reported by Bloomberg in February, showed that fewer employees were inspired by Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai’s vision than a year earlier. It also found fewer workers believe senior management could successfully lead the company into the future.At Facebook, which just like Google provides employees with perks including free meals, corporate transportation and laundry services, workers have pushed back internally against leadership on some policy issues, such as the decision not to fact-check political advertisements.(Updates with new tech entrants in the fifth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Kurt Wagner in San Francisco at kwagner71@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jillian Ward at jward56@bloomberg.net, Andrew Pollack, Molly SchuetzFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Amazon Alexa Devices Sell Out in Europe Before Christmas - Again

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.European shoppers who waited until now to buy the latest Echo voice speakers for Christmas are out of luck. And not even a Prime membership can help them.Amazon.com Inc.’s new generation of Alexa devices has sold out in parts of Europe and won’t be available again until the new year, according to the retailer’s websites in various countries. The same thing happened last year when various models became unavailable in North America and Europe the week before the holiday.While “sellout” headlines can generate buzz for new products, highlighting how a hot product is flying off the shelves, the Echo speakers are an important part of Amazon’s sales strategy. The relatively modestly priced devices are seen as a way to rope users into the company’s ecosystem of products, and they face rising competition from other traditional leading consumer electronics brands, such as Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co.Customers trying to order third-generation Echo speakers on the U.K. website on Wednesday were told that they won’t be able to receive their order until sometime between Dec. 25 and Jan. 2, depending on the color. A listing for the Echo Dot, a hockey-puck-sized speaker that sells for 24.99 pounds ($32.85), said it’s out of stock until Dec. 20 or later.French, Spanish and German shoppers looking for an Echo are out of luck until January. The Dot appears to be back in stock a few days before Christmas, but won’t necessarily make it to the proper destination before the holiday.The beefed-up Echo Studio, a higher-end speaker aimed at music lovers that retails for 190 pounds in Britain, is also out of stock until the new year in those markets. The Echo Show, which has a video screen, is still in stock.Read more about the new line of Alexa devices here.A spokesman for Amazon didn’t have an immediate comment.Echo speakers are still available in the U.S. and customers can find some in Europe from third-party retailers. \--With assistance from Natalia Drozdiak, Rodrigo Orihuela and Helene Fouquet.To contact the reporter on this story: Amy Thomson in London at athomson6@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at gturner35@bloomberg.net, Molly SchuetzFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Five Things You Need to Know to Start Your Day

    (Bloomberg) -- Want to receive this post in your inbox every morning? Sign up hereFed day, the first day of trading for the world's biggest listed stock and the last day of campaigning for the U.K. election. Here are some of the things people in markets are talking about today.Decision dayNot a single economist surveyed by Bloomberg expects the Federal Reserve to announce a change in interest rates at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time today. For investors the decision will be all about the outlook, with the Federal Open Market Committee updating its rate forecast through 2022. Chairman Jerome Powell will give a press conference at 2:30 p.m. where he is expected to maintain his recent upbeat tone economic expansion. Biggest everSaudi Aramco successfully became the world’s most valuable public company after raising $25.6 billion in its record IPO and jumping by the daily 10% limit when the stock started trading this morning, giving the oil producer a market valuation of $1.88 trillion. The decision to list on the Riyadh stock exchange pushed the regional bourse into the world’s top 10. There are a lot of unusual things about the IPO, not least of which is the tiny free-float that will give shareholders little or no say over how the company is run. Last dayParty leaders in the U.K. are touring marginal constituencies on the final day of campaigning ahead of tomorrow’s election. A key poll released yesterday showed that while Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains on track for an overall majority, his lead is shrinking. The pound dropped after the survey was released. Anti-Brexit campaigners are putting their efforts into a tactical vote campaign in the hopes of stopping Johnson’s Conservative Party gaining a majority. Markets mixed Equity investors are not making any big decisions as they wait for trade, monetary and political events to play out over the next few days. Overnight, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index gained 0.3% while Japan’s Topix index closed 0.3% lower. In Europe, the Stoxx 600 Index had slid 0.2% by 5:50 a.m. in a fairly subdued session so far. S&P 500 futures pointed to a small loss at the open, the 10-year Treasury yield was at 1.816% and gold was higher. Coming up…U.S. inflation is expected to have picked up to 2% in November, with the core reading remaining unchanged at 2.3% when the data is published at 8:30 a.m. The U.S. crude oil inventory report is released at 10:30 a.m. As well as the Fed decision at 2:00 p.m., the U.S. November budget statement is published. Among the companies reporting earnings today are Lululemon Athletica Inc., American Eagle Outfitters Inc. and United Natural Foods Inc. What we've been readingThis is what's caught our eye over the last 24 hours.Traders buy hedges “like the world is about to end.” The $11 trillion emerging-markets rally has big backing for 2020.  China’s curing cancer faster and cheaper than anywhere else.  Swiss stocks may be boring but they are matching the S&P 500. Ken Griffin has another money machine to rival his hedge fund.  Apple’s new Mac Pro can cost $52,000. That’s without the $400 wheels.  Is Earth getting bigger over time?To contact the author of this story: Lorcan Roche Kelly in Dublin at lrochekelly@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Cecile Gutscher at cgutscher@bloomberg.net, Sid VermaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Saudi Aramco Shares Climb 10% in Pre-Market Auction

    (Bloomberg) -- Bids for Saudi Aramco’s shares in the pre-market auction are at 35.2 riyals, according to data on Bloomberg. That’s an increase of 10%, the daily limit.The Saudi stock exchange is holding an opening auction for the shares from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. local time, 30 minutes longer than usual. Continuous trading will start after that, with price changes limited to 10% up or down.Aramco raised $25.6 billion in the biggest-ever IPO, selling shares at 32 riyals each and valuing the company at $1.7 trillion, overtaking Microsoft Corp. and Apple Inc. as the most valuable listed company.The start of trading in Riyadh marks the end of a near four-year saga that’s been intertwined with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s rise to global prominence and his Vision 2030 plan to reform the Saudi economy. First announced in an interview with Economist in January 2016, the IPO set records, but fell short of the $100 billion international offering with a valuation of $2 trillion that the prince once proposed.To contact the reporter on this story: Shaji Mathew in Dubai at shajimathew@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Claudia Maedler at cmaedler@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    TikTok Owner Is Testing Music App in Bid for Next Global Hit

    (Bloomberg) -- TikTok owner ByteDance Inc. is testing a new music app in emerging markets as it tries to pull off another global sensation akin to its viral video-sharing service.Called Resso, the new app is now available in India and Indonesia, two of Asia’s most populous countries and places already keenly familiar with TikTok. Since an initial launch six months ago, Resso has been installed by about 27,000 users across the iOS App Store and Google Play, according to data compiled by Sensor Tower, which said the numbers indicate promotion of the app began in earnest at the end of November.ByteDance, the world’s most valuable startup, has been quietly developing the app to challenge the likes of Spotify and Apple Music in countries where paid music services have yet to garner large audiences.“The dilemma for all three companies is how to monetize a price-sensitive user base with low relative incomes,” said Michael Norris, research and strategy manager at Shanghai-based consultancy AgencyChina. “At the moment, it’s a race for active users in the developing world. Commercial realities will be put aside, at least for now.”Unlike Spotify, Resso displays real-time lyrics and lets users post their comments under individual songs. They can also generate music-accompanied GIFs and videos, emulating a favorite feature of TikTok. The app offers a monthly paid subscription service, which costs 119 rupees ($1.70) in India, the same as Spotify. Premium Resso users will be able to download music and listen ad-free.The Beijing-based company has secured rights from Indian labels T-Series and Times Music, Bloomberg News previously reported.A TikTok Craze Is Minting Celebrities and Ruining Lives in IndiaYet there are still no rights deals with the world’s three largest music companies -- Warner Music Group Corp., Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment -- which control the vast majority of popular music and whose catalogs would be crucial for Resso to catch on globally, according to people familiar with the matter.Record companies credit TikTok with minting a new generation of music stars, including Lil Nas X, the singer of “Old Town Road.” As it has attracted hundreds of millions of users with their music, however, those companies are now demanding ByteDance increase the licensing fees it pays.“Resso is currently in a beta testing phase,” a Resso representative said in a statement. “We are optimistic about its long-term prospects but we are still very early in the process and only in a limited number of developing markets.”ByteDance was valued at $75 billion last year in part because investors are confident about its reputation as a mobile app factory. But the seven-year-old startup is still on the lookout for its next major breakout hit after TikTok and news aggregator Toutiao, its first signature app. With the paid music app, ByteDance is also looking to expand its revenue stream beyond advertising to counter a slowing home economy that has dampened advertisers’ appetites.A rare global feat for a Chinese internet company, TikTok has been installed nearly 1.5 billion times since launching in 2017. New U.S. users grew 38% to 11.6 million in the third quarter, according to Sensor Tower, up from 8.4 million a year earlier.But its Chinese ownership has become a lightning rod for criticism as tensions rise between the U.S. and China over trade and technology. American politicians and teen users alike have expressed concerns about the app’s handling of user data and censorship of politically-sensitive expression.Testing out Resso in its chosen markets gives ByteDance the breathing room to scale up the service slowly and out of the intense spotlight that’s placed on its other services.(Updates with analyst comment in fourth paragraph)\--With assistance from Muneeza Naqvi.To contact the reporters on this story: Zheping Huang in Hong Kong at zhuang245@bloomberg.net;Lucas Shaw in Los Angeles at lshaw31@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Peter Elstrom at pelstrom@bloomberg.net, Vlad SavovFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
