K-pop sex scandals are crushing Korean entertainment stocks

Two sex scandals that rocked the South Korean music world have crushed the country’s entertainment stocks as police investigate the involvement of celebrities in alleged criminal conduct.

K-pop artist Seungri (real name Lee Seung-hyun), who was part of hugely popular boy band Big Bang, has been accused of providing prostitutes to investors in a club he owned. Police are also seeking a warrant to arrest another star, TV personality Jung Joon-young, over sex videos that he allegedly shared in social media chat rooms.

YG Entertainment, the company that manages Big Bang and Seungri, has seen its stock plummet 24.8 percent since Feb. 25, after the celebrity was questioned by police over drug use and prostitution. On Tuesday, the stock closed at 36,150 Korean won per share, down around 1 percent from the day before.

According to reports, the nation’s five major entertainment companies lost 17.52 percent in value from Feb. 25 to March 15, after their combined market value fell from 3.35 trillion won ($2.96 billion) to 2.76 trillion won.

Trouble first surfaced in late January, when Korean media reported that employees at Burning Sun, a nightclub then owned by Seungri, were being accused of assaulting a customer. Things spiraled in late February, when the singer was taken in for questioning by the police.

On March 11, following reports that the celebrity had been charged with providing sexual services at his club, YG Entertainment saw its stock fall 14.1 percent. On the same day, Seungri announced on his Instagram account that he would retire from show business.

The stock fell another 3.4 percent on March 12.

Other Korean entertainment companies such as JYP Entertainment, SM Entertainment, Cube Entertainment and FNC Entertainment also suffered losses as the scandals unfolded.

Seungri and several other artists were reported to be members of the mobile chat room where Jung sent videos of himself having sex with women. Jung and Choi Jong-hoon, a member of band FT Island who was also alleged to have been in the chat group, announced they would retire.

FNC Entertainment, which manages Choi, saw its share price fall 11.1 percent on March 11.

SM Entertainment, Cube Entertainment and FNC Entertainment all saw their stocks recording more than 20 percent declines from Feb. 25 to March 15. JYP Entertainment, meanwhile, was only down about 5.5 percent during that period.

Here’s how to delete messages you regret sending on Facebook Messenger, just like Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook on Tuesday is launching a new feature that lets you delete old messages inside its chat platform, Facebook Messenger. It’s a feature that previously only CEO Mark Zuckerberg had. If you’ve sent messages you might regret, or if you just want to clean up your older chat history, you can easily delete select messages. Here’s how:Open the Facebook Messenger app on your phone or desktop. That said, in our tests it looks like some Messenger users don’t have the updated mobile app yet.

Here's how to delete messages you regret sending on Facebook Messenger, just like Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook on Tuesday is launching a new feature that lets you delete old messages inside its chat platform, Facebook Messenger. It’s a feature that previously only CEO Mark Zuckerberg had.

If you’ve sent messages you might regret, or if you just want to clean up your older chat history, you can easily delete select messages.

Here’s how:

Open the Facebook Messenger app on your phone or desktop.

Open a conversation with messages you’d like to delete.

Press and hold on a message.

Select “delete” on the bottom of the screen.

Select “remove for everyone” — that makes sure that the messages disappear from the inboxes of the people you sent them to, not just from your own. It’s supposed to take about 10 minutes.

That’s it. Soon you’ll have the same power that once belonged to Zuckerberg alone. That said, in our tests it looks like some Messenger users don’t have the updated mobile app yet. Facebook said it’ll roll out by the end of the day Tuesday.

Cramer Remix: This market is being too picky

“Here’s the problem: we had a lot of companies report and they had one little thing wrong and they just got crushed, so the market’s being too picky,” Cramer, host of “Mad Money,” explained in a fireside chat with callers. “If it’s got a good balance sheet and good prospects and Jay [Powell] comes to his senses, you’re going to say, ‘Why didn’t I buy some?’ And that’s why we’re positioning for the club to doing a little buying,” he said, referring to his charitable trust, ActionAlertsPlus.com.

Cramer Remix: This market is being too picky

It may feel like the stock market is collapsing, but investors would be better served to “sit tight” and wait for a bounce rather than selling stocks at their lows, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Thursday after a brutal day for the major averages.

“Here’s the problem: we had a lot of companies report and they had one little thing wrong and they just got crushed, so the market’s being too picky,” Cramer, host of “Mad Money,” explained in a fireside chat with callers.

But the sell-off, which was exacerbated by the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike on Wednesday, will eventually end and create a better selling opportunity for the risk-averse, he said.

“If it’s got a good balance sheet and good prospects and Jay [Powell] comes to his senses, you’re going to say, ‘Why didn’t I buy some?’ And that’s why we’re positioning for the club to doing a little buying,” he said, referring to his charitable trust, ActionAlertsPlus.com. “We’re not selling down here. It’s too late. It may be too early to buy, but it’s too late to just start [selling]. Wait for a bounce.”

Google shutting down Allo

Google plans to kill chat app Allo by the middle of next year, the company said in a blog post, confirming a report earlier on Wednesday about the product’s imminent demise.

Despite owning the world’s dominant smartphone operating system in Android, Google has never been able to create a chat experience to rival Apple’s iMessage or Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp.

Allo, which launched two years ago to much fanfare, will only work until March 2019, at which point users will have to download any conversations they want to save. Meanwhile, Google will focus fully on the development of Messages, its other chat app for Android phones. Earlier this year, Google announced that it was working with mobile carriers on a new Rich Communication Services (RCS) standard, an upgrade to classic SMS texting, to make messaging work better across Android devices, and bring users features like read receipts and seamless group chats.

That initiative was the beginning of the end for Allo, which saw its product lead defect to Facebook earlier this year.

Google also said in its blog post that it plans to support another one of its chat apps, Hangouts, until it makes two of its enterprise apps, Hangouts Chat and Meet, available for non-paying users.

A Google employee tweeted earlier on Thursday that Meet and Chat would launch for regular consumers next year:

Google has long had a complicated, messy strategy when it comes to chat apps, and has axed a laundry list of communication products, including the original GChat, the social network Buzz, and the collaboration tool Wave. Earlier this year, it announced it was shutting down its social network Google Plus after it discovered a security bug that left private profile data exposed.

How to use Group FaceTime on iPhone, iPad

If your family is like mine, chances are you might find yourselves split up over the holidays. Some folks are on one coast and maybe some family members are traveling out of the country. Normally, you might video chat with individual families or people separately, but, now you can Group FaceTime with (almost) everyone at once.

In its latest iOS 12.1 update, Apple included Group FaceTime and the ability for up to 32 people to video chat at the same time on iPhone or iPad. The person who is talking becomes the largest on the screen, but you can still see everyone. There are even fun visual effects you can add to spice up the conversation.

Keep in mind that this only works for devices that support FaceTime, so Android users won’t be able to join. But I like FaceTime because it lets you use someone’s regular phone number to place a call, so you don’t have to worry about them being logged into a service like Skype.

Here’s how to use Group FaceTime on your iPhone or iPad.

The creator of Google's self-driving car project is now working to automate boring office functions

Sebastian Thrun, one of the best known entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, is taking on a new challenge that’s a big shift from his work in autonomous transportation or online education:

He’s working to automate sales chats.

Thrun, who founded Google’s research lab X and its autonomous car project, education start-up Udacity, and electric aircraft company KittyHawk, is a co-founder and chairman of a stealthy enterprise company called Cresta AI. He’s the elder statesman of the founding team, which includes Zayd Enam and Tim Shi, who are both in their late 20s.

Cresta’s artificial intelligence-powered system is designed to help automate mundane office jobs, allowing users to get work done more efficiently.

“If we train AI to take over boring repetitive tasks, we can free humanity and reach new heights,” Thrun told CNBC.

Enam, Cresta’s CEO, describes an unusual situation that he counts as a sign of the success.

A sales representative using Cresta’s product recently told him that she got a sudden nosebleed while on the clock sending chat messages to customers, but was able to continue her work unimpeded. While ebbing the bleeding with one hand, she could click Cresta’s conversational suggestions with the other.

The image of an employee working through the loss of vital fluids may seem bleak, but Enam says it illustrates the product’s value. Just imagine all the other types of distractions you may need to work through or the mundane tasks that could be breezed through faster. The Cresta system finds patterns from successful experiences and serves employees chat recommendations based on all that data.

“We want to build artificial intelligence that makes people experts on the first day of their job,” Enam said. “Ultimately we help sales agents make more money. They’re having more effective conversations and they’re having more of them.”

The company currently works with three chat centers across the country.

Apple delays group FaceTime, which it made a big deal over at its last event

When Apple rolls out its next major iPhone and iPad update this fall, iOS 12, it will not include group FaceTime video chat, the company said.

Apple initially discussed group FaceTime during WWDC in June, where it detailed all of the new features coming to iOS 12. Group FaceTime allows up to 32 people to video chat at the same time. It also includes support for Apple’s Animoji, so users can chat with different digital masks on their faces.

Group FaceTime was one of the few major feature updates in iOS 12, which was otherwise devoted to incremental nuts-and-bolts updates such as faster performance.

While it has been available to test in some of the earlier development versions of the software, Apple has apparently decided it isn’t ready for everyone to use.

A similar situation occurred when Apple first announced AirPlay 2, Apple’s new wireless streaming technology. AirPlay 2 was supposed to launch in last year’s iOS 11 but didn’t launch until June of this year.

“Group FaceTime has been removed from the initial release of iOS 12 and will ship in a future software update later this fall,” Apple said in its latest developer release of the software.

Apple typically launches the new versions of iOS in September in tandem with the introduction of new iPhone models.

Facebook adds new opportunities to cash in on WhatsApp

Facebook’s chat service WhatsApp is adding more ways for companies to communicate with customers, and opening up a new way for the parent company to cash in.

While WhatsApp doesn’t have advertising outright, it is increasing functionality for businesses on its platform called WhatsApp Business. An update Wednesday to WhatsApp Business will allow companies to send information to customers through the app. Companies can also add a link to their WhatsApp chat on their website or pay Facebook to promote the chats in an ad.

Companies can use the WhatsApp chat feature for free, as long as they respond to a customer’s message within 24 hours. Otherwise, the company has to pay a fee to WhatsApp. It charges a fixed rate per country, ranging from about half a cent to 9 cents per message, according to a WhatsApp spokesperson.

Facebook’s move is its latest attempt to monetize the other apps in its portfolio, like WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram. Facebook said last week that 2.5 billion people use its family of apps each month.

During a call with analysts for its second-quarter earnings report, Facebook projected lower revenue growth and operating margin growth.

But it still could have room to grow with its other apps, including WhatsApp. Allowing people to click a Facebook ad to get to a WhatsApp Business chat could encourage more businesses to buy more advertising. Charging for customer service messages may provide an additional revenue stream. The company has also added similar customer service and other ad opportunities on Messenger to attract businesses.
