Geht TikTok an Microsoft/Walmart?

Microsoft working with Walmart on TikTok deal – Microsoft is working with Walmart on its efforts to buy TikTok’s U.S. business from China’s ByteDance, Axios has learned from multiple sources close to the process. … The idea would be to help turn TikTok U.S. into more of an e-commerce app for creators and users, much like what TikTok parent company ByteDance does with a similar app in China. … There is not yet a signed agreement between Microsoft and ByteDance, as the sides technically have until Sept. 15 to submit a deal proposal to the White House for approval. … It’s possible that Walmart also has had discussions with Oracle, which also continues to negotiate with ByteDance. … Walmart adds more financial firepower and e-commerce know-how to Microsoft’s efforts.“


TikTok likely to announce sale of U.S. operations in the coming days in $20 billion to $30 billion range – TikTok is nearing an agreement to sell its U.S., Canadian, Australian and New Zealand operations in a deal that could be announced as soon as next week, sources say. … TikTok hasn’t chosen a buyer and is still negotiating with Oracle and Microsoft, sources say. – Walmart had been working with SoftBank on a bid for TikTok which is seen as unlikely because there isn’t a technology backbone partner for the deal.“

Unlike the Apple Watch or even most basic Fitbits, the Amazon Halo Band doesn’t have a screen. The app that goes along with it comes with the usual set of fitness tracking features along with two innovative – and potentially troubling – ideas: using your camera to create 3D scans for body fat and listening for the emotion in your voice.“
