Online data storage provider Box's shares soar in debut

Shares of online data storage provider Box Inc rose as much as 77 percent in their market debut as investors bet on the company's ability to turn profitable in a highly competitive market, boding well for another big year for IPOs. Box's shares, which priced at $14, hit a high of $24.72 in morning trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, valuing the company at nearly $3 billion. The stock's enthusiastic reception also underscored healthy investor appetite for technology stocks after the blockbuster debut of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd in September. Box was founded in 2005 by University of Southern California dropout Aaron Levie, the chief executive, and his friend Dylan Smith, the chief financial officer.



SAP sees high cloud profit potential in long term
Europe's biggest software group SAP could eventually see its software delivered via the cloud deliver higher profit margins than its traditional packaged software, its finance chief told a newspaper. In the long term, they can definitely become more profitable than our classic licence sales," Luka Mucic told the Euro am Sonntag business weekly in an interview published on Saturday. Unlike the packaged software SAP has been selling for decades, for which clients pay a immediate licence fee, cloud-based software is generally paid for by subscription over time, but most of the costs for the software provider are upfront.

Hutchison to buy Telefonica UK unit for $15.4 billion

By Julien Toyer and Denny Thomas MADRID/HONG KONG (Reuters) - Li Ka-shing's Hutchison Whampoa Ltd has agreed to buy Telefonica's British mobile unit O2 for up to 10.25 billion pounds ($15.4 billion), hastening the consolidation of Britain's telecoms industry. Hutchison already operates the Three Mobile network in Britain, and buying second-ranked O2, which has about 22 million subscribers, from the Spanish group will make it the top mobile operator in the country. The move comes only weeks after former state monopoly BT entered exclusive talks with the owners of EE, Britain's biggest mobile operator to create a dominant provider of fixed and mobile phones and internet services.



In China, VPN internet access tools suffer further disruptions
Internet services that allow people to freely access blocked websites and apps from within China have seen more severe disruptions this week, said three providers, moves that Chinese state media said were justified. The services affected include popular Virtual Private Network (VPN) providers Astrill, StrongVPN and Golden Frog, which are engaged in a technological arms race to one-up China's highly sophisticated Great Firewall internet censorship system. "This week's attack on VPNs that affected us and other VPN providers is more sophisticated than what we've seen in the past," said SundayYokubaitis, president of Golden Frog.
Who's afraid of China's economy slowing? Not Alibaba's Jack Ma

By Nadia Damouni DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) - Jack Ma, executive chairman of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding, isn't worried about slowing Chinese economic growth, he told a meeting of business and political leaders in Davos, Switzerland. "If China still keeps 9 percent growth of the economy there must be something wrong. China should pay attention to the quality of the economy," he said in a question-and-answer session at the World Economic Forum. China's economy grew 7.4 percent in 2014 -- the slowest pace in 24 years, government data released on Tuesday showed.

Nevertheless, with Walmart's considerable muscle behind it, the Vudu Spark could end up finding its way into a number of homes across the country.

The End of the Tour is about the soul-sucking nature of the celebrity profile

The End of The Tour may beabout David Foster Wallace, but James Ponsoldt's (The Spectacular Now, Smashed) new film can't be called a biopic. Its scope is more concentrated than that: a chronicle of a five-day interview between David Foster Wallace and reporter David Lipsky, on the final stop of his book tour for Infinite Jest. Two: I want to strangle Jesse Eisenberg. Eisenberg plays Lipsky, a then-Rolling Stone reporter who would go on to write Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace, an account of the interview he conducted in 1998 for a never-published profile of Wallace.

U.S. airline flights land in Atlanta after bomb threats
Bomb threats against two U.S. airline flights on Saturday prompted North American air defense fighter planes to scramble to accompany them to their destination in Atlanta, an airport spokesman said. The planes landed safely at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, no bombs were found aboard either flight and the Atlanta airport has returned to normal operations, said airport spokesman Reese McCranie. Threats against Delta Air Lines flight 1156, coming from Portland, Oregon, and Southwest Airlines flight 2492, from Milwaukee, had been deemed credible, McCranie said. Atlanta's WSB-TV News reported that the threats were made on Twitter Inc, without citing a source.

Nazi camp survivors recall Auschwitz

By Barbara Goldberg NEW YORK (Reuters) - In a little leather book, the kind some men use to list lovers, Holocaust survivor Hy Abrams keeps the names that still haunt him: Auschwitz, Plaszow, Mauthausen, Melk and Ebensee. It has been 70 years since the Soviet army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, where Abrams was taken at age 20 by German Nazi soldiers and separated from his mother, father, brother and three sisters. Abrams, at 90, is among the oldest of a dwindling population of Holocaust survivors who gather each week at a Brooklyn synagogue to share stories, and perhaps lunch and a dance or two. With an average age of 79, they are poor and in need of special help as the result of stress and malnutrition, said the UJA-Federation of New York, which supports the Brooklyn gatherings organized by Selfhelp Community Services.

Auschwitz: enduring testament to Nazi horrors
The Auschwitz concentration camp, one of the most haunting symbols of the horrors of Nazism, is today a firm fixture on the tourist trail. Thousands of people, including many school children, visit each year to learn about the gas chambers that were part of the Nazi's "final solution". This despite the fact that from the summer of 1942 "information about the massacres of the Jews in territory occupied by the German army was complete," said French historian Georges Bensoussan. Governments at the time have been accused of turning a blind eye to the Nazi death camps.
