A month later, Apple Music hasn’t killed Spotify

qz.com — Apple Music, the company's long-awaited streaming music service, launched one month ago. So far, two things are clear: Apple Music was a bit rushed and Spotify, the leading independent streaming service, is doing just fine-for now, at least. Earlier this month, Bloomberg's Joshua Brustein smartly checked in on Spotify's download ranks in the App Store.

Facebook is about to pass 1 billion daily active users

qz.com — Facebook's incredible user growth continues. Sometime this year-possibly this quarter-Facebook will pass 1 billion daily active users. And even sooner, it will pass 1.5 billion monthly active users-if it hasn't already. Those projections are based on the company's second-quarter earnings report, released today. Facebook said it had an average 968 million daily active users in June, up...

Jack Dorsey's Twitter Conference Call Performance help sink the stock

qz.com — Twitter's change in top management-ex-CEO Dick Costolo stepped down in June-was meant in part to give the shares a lift. But the installment of Twitter-cofounder Jack Dorsey as interim CEO has been less than salubrious for the stock, which is down roughly 12% from where it was when Costolo left the corner office.

Amazon would have even been a good investment at the peak of the dot-com bubble

qz.com — Amazon shares have gained 20% this month, including a big spike last week following the company's second-quarter earnings report. (Amazon posted a surprise profit and showed that its early investment in cloud computing was very smart.) While shareholders' reaction to Amazon's unique profitability strategy isn't always unconditional excitement, it has proven an excellent long-term investment.

The story of Apple right now is the iPhone in China

qz.com — Apple's biggest growth drivers last quarter were familiar ones. Its iPhone business-long the company's focus-grew by more than half, to $31 billion, on 47.5 million shipments. And its Greater China region sales continued their momentum, more than doubling to $13 billion-representing more than one quarter of the company's revenue.

Everything Tim Cook said-and didn’t say-about Apple Watch sales

qz.com — Apple's fiscal third-quarter earnings report yesterday (July 21) was its first since launching sales of the Apple Watch this past April. The company, as promised, divulged very little about Apple Watch sales. It did not specify unit sales or revenue the way it does for other categories, such as the iPhone or iPad.
