YouTube launches on Fire TV, ending dispute between Amazon and Google

YouTube will launch on Amazon Fire TV devices on Tuesday. YouTube Kids and YouTube TV will launch later this year, Google said. Amazon Prime video will also be available on Google Chromecast products and Android TVs.

Google had originally promised to relaunch YouTube on the Fire TV in April after it pulled the app in December 2017 as competition between Google and Amazon began to heat up in the streaming space.

Amazon did not sell Google products, such as the Google Home speaker and Nest cameras, which compete with the Amazon Echo and Amazon’s Ring cameras. Google decided to pull YouTube from Fire TV due to a “lack of reciprocity” from Amazon. Amazon still doesn’t sell the Google Home, but it now sells Nest products.

A third-party YouTube app has been available on Fire TV devices, but it only brought users to YouTube’s website and was not a full-featured experience. The new YouTube app will support streaming in 4K HDR and users can ask Alexa to play videos from the service or control content, for example.

YouTube will be available Tuesday on the Fire TV Stick, TV Cube and Toshiba, Element, Insignia and Westinghouse TVs with Amazon’s Fire TV software installed.

Amazon launches new in-store pickup option with Rite Aid as its first partner

Amazon.com has steadily added options for customers to receive their packages including in car trunks, inside home garages and potentially by drone.

On Thursday, Amazon added another alternative for U.S. customers: Walk into a nearby retailer and pick up an Amazon package over the counter.

The new option, called Counter, will launch with pharmacy Rite Aid offering the service in 100 stores, with an expansion to 1,500 stores by year’s end, the companies said. Amazon is also looking to get other retailers, including small businesses, to join the program as it expands.

The new option builds on Amazon’s previous efforts to put lockers inside retail stores where customers can pick up packages. Patrick Supanc, world director of Amazon Hub, told Reuters the locker has spread to thousands of stores but some retailers do not have the space to accommodate a locker.

“Overall, we want to give every Amazon customer the option of an alternative delivery location,” Supanc said. “This will become an extensive network.”

Amazon said the service will not cost extra and will work with existing shipping options such as same-day service. When a package arrives at a store, the customer will get an email notification. Once in the store, the customer shows an employee a barcode, and the employee scans it, finds the package and hands it over.

The service was originally launched in the United Kingdom and Italy with retailers NEXT, Giunti Al Punto Librerie, Fermopoint, and SisalPay. Amazon’s Supanc would not comment on the financial details of the deals or whether Amazon is paying the retailers to participate.

Supanc said early data from the European launch has shown “very clear evidence” that the increased foot traffic from Amazon customers coming into partner stores increases sales there.

“They’re being introduced to Amazon customers, and Amazon customers are getting to know that store. That additional footfall into their stores translates into additional sales for those partners,” he said.

In a statement, Jocelyn Konrad, executive vide president of pharmacy and retail operations at Rite Aid, said the program, along with Amazon’s lockers in Rite Aid stores, “creates a stronger in-store experience for existing customers and new customers that come in to pick up their packages.”

Supanc said that the two companies were “not sharing any retail data with each other” and that the effort was focused on delivery experiences and not connected to Amazon’s other efforts to get into pharmacy retailing, such as its purchase of startup PillPack last year.

Dodge launches the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat: The world's 'most powerful and fastest' mass-produced car

The muscle car wars continue to heat up as Dodge fires the latest salvo with its 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody it calls the “most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world.” It’s also the near twin of the Widebody version of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat coupe that made its debut two years ago, both models sharing the same 707 horsepower supercharged V-8 engine. The performance brand of Fiat Chrysler, Dodge says its latest muscle car can hit 60 in just 3.6 seconds and top out at 196 mph. Despite increasingly stringent mileage mandates, automakers keep upping their performance game. Ford last week said its new Mustang-based Shelby GT500 Coupe will generate 760 horsepower when it comes to market later this year. General Motors will unveil the first-ever mid-engine version of its Chevrolet Corvette next month. Manufacturers as diverse as Hyundai and Aston Martin are rolling out ever more gutsy models — some turning to electrified powertrains to push the performance envelope.

8-speed transmission

The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody’s 6.2-liter V-8 uses a massive supercharger to deliver 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic that, the automaker says, can improve both performance and fuel economy. The wheels of the Widebody sedan flare out 3.5 inches more than the original Hellcat. That provides room for significantly wider, 20- by 11-inch Pirelli 305/35ZR20, tires and makes it easier for the Charger to grip the pavement under hard acceleration. Spinning tires may look and sound great but waste time when you’re looking for a fast launch. The Charger Widebody will also get stiffer springs, larger anti-sway bars and retuned shock absorbers to allow it to handle on a track or on winding roads. And Brembo brakes will help it quickly scrub off speed without fading under repeated hard braking maneuvers.

Fast, faster, fastest

The sedan also uses four technologies, including Launch Control and Line Lock, to make it easier for even less-experienced drivers to achieve fast take-offs. Over recent years, Dodge has been rolling out a succession of fast, faster, fastest variants based on its long-lived Charger sedan and Challenger coupe models — even as it has dropped virtually all other nameplates. The Charger and Challenger are among only three passenger-car models now built by the U.S. side of Fiat Chrysler. The addition of the Widebody could help build demand for the more practical, four-door Charger which has traditionally been outsold by the Dodge Challenger. All told, Fiat Chrysler sold 66,716 of the coupes — in all the various configurations — last year. But that lagged behind the muscle car segment leader, the Ford Mustang. Its 10 different versions racked up 75,842 U.S. sales in 2018.

Muscle car wars

Ford hopes to trounce the Challenger Hellcat line when it officially ships the first Shelby GT500s to dealers for the 2020 model-year. It will be the most powerful street-legal Mustang ever to roll out of a Ford plant, at 767 horsepower. GM has yet to reveal details on the new 2020 Corvette, the first-ever mid-engine model known to fans as the “C8.” But the top-line version of the 2019 ‘Vette, the ZR1, makes 755 horsepower and can top out at 212 mph. More and more manufacturers are pushing into the performance market. Hyundai recently launched a sporty sub-brand dubbed “N,” hoping to win over muscle car fans on a budget.

Tesla sets the pace

Rome to New York in a narrowbody jet? Airbus launches a lean new plane for long flights

The Boeing 747 jumbo jet that started flying half a century ago opened up so many destinations that it became known as the plane that shrank the world. Now a rival manufacturer wants to shrink the planes.

Airbus on Monday announced plans to build an extended-range version of its single-aisle A321 jet, a bet on expanding what its line of leaner planes can do and that travelers and airlines will warm to flying a narrowbody aircraft on trips that could be longer than eight hours.

The new Airbus A321XLR, would have a range of up to 4,700 nautical miles that could let it link cities like New York and Rome or Tokyo and Sydney. Airbus plans to increase the range by 15% compared with its standard long-range A321, which JetBlue Airways in April said it would use for its first service to London in 2021.

The plane marks a shift for Airbus and commercial flight shifting toward smaller, nimbler aircraft. Airbus earlier this year announced it will end production of the A380, the world’s largest passenger plane, as demand for the 500-passenger plane faltered and airlines’ appetite for leaner aircraft rose.

Airbus’ announcement comes as its main competitor, Boeing, is hobbled by the crisis surrounding two fatal crashes of its 737 Max planes, aircraft that have been grounded worldwide since mid-March. Boeing has been mulling an all-new twin-aisle plane that would be smaller than its 787s but larger than its 737s.

Airbus argues that its plane could serve carriers who want to fill it with 180 to 220 passengers in two cabins, but don’t want to have the expense of operating a wide-body plane, which would have more seats to fill. The company expects the planes to be delivered in 2023.

“You can use a narrowbody, a single-aisle plane going long distances and you can connect cities that had no possibility of connections with a good business case,” Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury told CNBC in an interview on Monday following the announcement.

Faury said he wasn’t concerned that controversy over Boeing’s regulatory approval process for the 737 Max could bring more scrutiny of Airbus’ new plane.

“That might be good news,” he said. “That’s the way to raise the level of safety.”

UK app-only bank Monzo launches in the US to take on America's financial giants

British fintech start-up Monzo has launched in the United States, as it looks to challenge the country’s established banking giants.

The London-based company said Thursday that it would initially offer a “few thousands cards” to American customers at launch events in Los Angeles, California.

Monzo is one of several so-called challenger banks that operate with only an ATM card and an app. These are new digital banks that are looking to take a slice of the massive financial services sector.

There are already a number of such players in Europe, including U.K. firm Revolut and Germany’s N26, while in the U.S. the main neobanks appear to be Chime and Aspiration.

To help with the U.S. launch, Monzo partnered with domestic lender Sutton Bank. It has selected LA as its initial U.S. base, and is looking to expand to other cities.

“When it comes to consumer apps, banks are at least a decade behind the ease and feature-set of a Lyft or an Airbnb, not to mention sloth-like and unimaginative when compared to the innovation cycle in the apps we use every day,” Monzo’s CEO Tom Blomfield said in a statement.

“With Monzo, we aim to make money work for everyone by working with our community of users to build things that work for them.”

By securing a U.S. launch, Monzo has managed to beat some of its rivals that also have ambitions to expand to the country. Revolut and N26 have both said they are looking to enter the U.S. at some point this year.

The Estonian ride-hailing company formerly known as Taxify announced its launch in the U.K.’s capital city Tuesday. It joins a growing list of start-ups trying to take market share from Uber in the London metropolitan area.

“We see this as quite a monumental thing for both the company and the ride-hailing industry as a whole,” Bolt CEO Markus Villig told CNBC in an interview. “London is one of the biggest, most profitable markets for Uber globally and one where it didn’t have a serious competitor.”

Villig, who founded the company in 2013, said more than 20,000 drivers have already signed up with Bolt ahead of Tuesday’s launch. There were an estimated 87,900 private hire vehicles licensed in London as of March 2018, according to the Department for Transport.

Amazon launches a credit card for the 'underbanked' with bad credit

Amazon is finding a way to get its rewards credit card in the hands of more people.

The e-commerce giant partnered with publicly traded bank Synchrony Financial to launch “Amazon Credit Builder” — a program that lends to shoppers with no credit history or bad credit, who would otherwise be exempt from Amazon’s loyalty cards.

“There’s always going to be people that we can’t give credit to — this is a large population that we weren’t able to reach,” Tom Quindlen, Synchrony executive vice president and CEO of the bank’s retail card operation, told CNBC in a phone interview. “It’s a new segment of the market.”

The card has the same perks, like 5% cash back on purchases, that come with the popular Amazon Store card, which Synchrony also powers. These rewards cards incentivize shoppers to use Amazon instead of an alternative and helps drive loyalty within its customer base, Quindlen said. Banks such as J.P. Morgan have also bet on rewards cards that would theoretically make customers spend more and in turn bring in more interest and returns.

SpaceX launches dozens of ‘Starlink’ internet satellites into space — its heaviest payload ever

SpaceX sent a packed rocket of 60 satellites into space on Thursday morning, in a key first mission toward building the company’s own high-speed internet network.

The launch was “the heaviest payload a Falcon 9 [rocket] has ever launched, or Falcon Heavy, for that matter,” SpaceX CEO Elon Musk told reporters before the mission. All in all, the rocket lifted more than 37,000 pounds of mass, he said.

Called “Starlink,” the satellites represent the company’s ambitious plan to build an interconnected satellite network to beam high-speed internet to anywhere on the planet. It’s how Musk believes SpaceX will be able to generate enough revenue to realize its even more ambitious goals of sending astronauts to Mars, and to establish the first human colony on the Red Planet.
