Amazon plans to buy stake in Reliance of 9.9%

Amazon in talks to buy 9.9% stake in Reliance retail arm: Report


Amazon wants a preferred, strategic stake in Reliance Retail for JioMart, according to reports

JioMart, the e-commerce venture of Reliance's retail arm, was launched in May

BENGALURU: Amazon.com Inc is in talks to buy a 9.9% stake in the retail arm of Indian conglomerate Reliance Industries Ltd, ET Now reported on Thursday, citing sources.
Amazon wants a preferred, strategic stake in Reliance Retail for JioMart, according to tweets by the television channel.
JioMart, the e-commerce venture of Reliance's retail arm, was launched in May and poses a formidable challenge to Amazon.com's local unit and Walmart Inc's Flipkart.
Earlier this year, Amazon India launched a program to add small local shops on its platform after India went into a lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.

An Amazon spokeswoman through email said the company does not comment on speculation, while Reliance did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Reliance, controlled by Asia's richest man, Mukesh Ambani, has raised around $20 billion since late April for its digital arm, including from Alphabet Inc's Google and Facebook Inc.

There is no charger use in apple 12 latest update

No, you don't need a charger with your iPhone 12 or Samsung Galaxy S30

Leaks are suggesting both Apple and Samsung are preparing to sell smartphones - such as the rumored iPhone 12 and Samsung Galaxy S30 - that don’t come with a charging block or cable in the box.

Instead, these companies are likely to ask you to buy a separate charger or use your existing tech that you already have in your home. This has proved divisive, as with any manufacturer losing a key part of their tech, but I believe this is the right thing to do. Inmy opinion, it's far past the time manufacturers took on more responsibility for the waste that comes from the average person purchasing new technology, and dropping the unnecessary accessories in the box is a bigger step toward curving e-waste than you may expect.

According to trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 12 won’t have those EarPods headphones - the cheap, wired headset you get for free - or a charger in the box when it lands later in the year.

A further report - soon after this iPhone 12 rumor - has suggested Samsung is deliberating on whether to follow suit in 2021 with some of its smartphones. Neither of these reports suggested exact models, or whether it'd be for all devices.

If this proves true, it means your phone won't come packaged with accessories. Why? Because it's very likely you already have what you need.

According to statistics provided by the European Parliament, the world generates 50 million metric tonnes of e-waste every year. That's everything from your broken kit to companies replacing your work laptop.

A variety of rumors have suggested the 2021 iPhone may be the first portless device from the company, and we've seen concept phones from other manufacturers that show how the idea may work.

Some of the misconceptions are disheartening, especially those about Zoom and China,"Sankarlingam said in a blog post. "We do recognize that as we continue to introduce ourselves to the Indian market, there has been some confusion about the facts as it relates to Zoom. We want to work through these," adds CEO.
Zoom has been clear about its identity: Zoom is a US company, publicly traded on the NASDAQ, founded and headquartered in San Jose, California. And like many global technology companies, Zoom has offices in China operated by subsidiaries of the US parent company," said Sankarlingam who spent over 10 years at VMware.

"We look forward to engaging with more stakeholders in India in the coming months to support key priorities such as Digital India, StartUp India, and Skills India, as well as introducing them to Zoom," said Sankarlingam.

A widely held popular opinion among Indian social media users is that Zoom is a Chinese company, owing to CEO Eric S Yuan being of Chinese origin.

The government had recently banned 59 mobile apps, including China's TikTok, SHAREiT and WeChat, terming them prejudicial to sovereignty, integrity, and national security
