Apple CEO Tim Cook put on his China economic expert hat this week after some analysts questioned whether the company could keep up its strong growth there. How'd he do? I asked the real China experts to grade the CEO..
Tim Cook offered a rosy outlook for Apple's future in China, but do China economic experts agree?

Media companies hope native ads will save them from losing ever more ad dollars to Facebook. But do companies even need media ads anymore? 
Brands large and small are making their own news. Who needs ads anymore?

eBay bought PayPal in 2002 for $1.5 billion and as it's about to spin-off, PayPal is valued at $45 billion. That's a crazy 30% per year compound return for 13 years. Sweet.
Shares of PayPal started trading ahead of the payment company's July 17 spin-off from eBay.

I hear they hacked the Red Sox first but decided to put everything back.
The F.B.I. and the Justice Department are investigating whether officials for the St. Louis Cardinals hacked into the internal networks of the Houston Astros to steal closely guarded information about player personnel.

How to manage millennials? The same way you should manage everyone else - listen to what they have to say. And if you've set up a social network for work, you sure better pay attention to what goes viral. And ps corporate America loves them some Uber
When the bean counters at IBM banned Uber for employees, a single employee fought back -- and won a reversal of the ban.

Who wins the next generation home automation & security market? Alarm.com looks good but the competition from all sides is fierce.
Alarm.com's IPO filing show at least the potential for heady profits in the smart home market. But can the upstart outrace much larger tech companies?

Tech reporter for Yahoo Finance based in Boston
Introduction
I'm a Boston-based reporter for Yahoo Finance covering technology companies and trends, though the opinions expressed here are solely my own. 

I used to blog about gadgets and software and provide my own commentary on tech topics of interest at GravitationalPull.net. It's still hanging around for posterity's sake.

I've been a professional journalist, covering mainly business and technology, for the past 20-plus years. I'm also a suburban dad, avid reader (and Kindle-owner), cyclist and Red Sox fan. And I'm 25% smarter and 112% happier thanks to my wife Whitney Connaughton.
