Microsoft acquires Express Logic to help its push into the 'internet of things'

Microsoft on Thursday said it has acquired Express Logic, a company that makes software for embedded devices. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

The move reflects Microsoft’s continuing focus on generating revenue around the so-called internet of things, which describes how a wide range of simple devices can gain functionality by connecting to the internet to share data, receive network updates and so on.

Administrators can use Microsoft’s Azure cloud service to manage devices remotely and set up artificial intelligence models that can be deployed locally on devices. Other cloud providers, like Amazon and Google, also offer some functionality around the internet of things.

Cloud is where Microsoft continues to direct investors’ attention; in the most recent quarter Microsoft’s commercial cloud revenue represented more than 25% of the company’s revenue.

Express Logic says it has 6.2 billion deployments of its ThreadX operating system, reflecting the widespread nature of connected devices. The company also has Windows software people for monitoring device activity.

Microsoft has its own version of Windows 10 designed for connected devices, and last year it introduced the Azure Sphere operating system and compatible cloud service.

“Our goal is to make Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS available as an option for real time processing requirements on an Azure Sphere device and also enable ThreadX-powered devices to connect to Azure IoT Edge devices when the IoT solution calls for edge computing capabilities,” Sam George, director of Azure IoT at Microsoft, wrote in a blog post.

Express Logic was founded in 1996 and is based in San Diego. The company has 38 employees listed on LinkedIn.

5 things you didn’t realize you could ask for that can save you lots of money

Just 37% of workers have asked for a raise, according to a 2018 survey of over 160,000 people by career site PayScale.

5 things you didn't realize you could ask for that can save you lots of money

Just 37% of workers have asked for a raise, according to a 2018 survey of over 160,000 people by career site PayScale. But 70% of those who did ask for more money got it, while just one in three people reported receiving a raise without asking for one. That means that most people could be leaving money on the table.

Those who have worked at a company for at least five years are most likely to receive a raise, Payscale found, though that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ask for one otherwise. Just be sure to come prepared to demonstrate the value you add to the business.

“They need you to show what impact your work has had on the business,” Lydia Frank, vice president of PayScale, told CNBC Make It.

Your preparation should also include knowing comparable salary ranges in your company and the broader field, bestselling author and CNBC contributor Suzy Welch told CNBC Make It. And if you need a raise because of external pressures — say, to save for your kid’s school — leave that out of the conversation.

“People often bring up their mortgage, their new car payment,” she says. “Focus on why you deserve a raise — not why you need it.”

Turkey’s economy is spiraling — and a new election will make things worse

Turkey's economy is spiraling — and a new election will make things worse

Turkey’s lira fell to a six-month low against the dollar this week as President Recep Erdogan’s ruling AK Party formally requested a new election for the city of Istanbul, where current tallies show it lost by a slim margin in local elections last month.

The move spells more trouble ahead for a massive economy already rocked by volatility, political tensions and diplomatic standoffs and whose currency crash last year set off a run on emerging markets.

“The market will not like months of uncertainty, if indeed the vote is repeated,” Timothy Ash, senior emerging markets strategist at Bluebay Asset Management, said in a note Tuesday.

“At this stage, whatever the result of the re-vote, the impression has been left that the election process in Turkey is not secure,” he added.

Here’s what to do if you missed the deadline to file your taxes

For 2019, the deadline to file your taxes was April 15 in nearly all states. If you requested an extension, which also had to be done by April 15, you’ll have until October 15 to file your taxes. An extension to file, however, is not the same as an extension to pay. To avoid accruing interest and facing a late fee, you should have already paid what you owe by the deadline. If you didn’t get it done, there are a few things you need to know to avoid some potentially serious penalties.

Before life goes sideways, be sure to do these 3 things

Chanel Reynolds got the call you never want.

Her husband, Jose, had been in a terrible accident and was now in intensive care, irreparably wounded. A week later, with no signs of brain function, he was removed from life support and died. Meanwhile, Reynolds realized they had wills, but they were not signed or notarized. She wasn’t sure of all their coverage, and she couldn’t easily locate the phone number for their insurance company.

A super-organized project manager, Reynolds says her organizing skills were extremely helpful. At the same time, she said, it was “humiliating that I was so disorganized and felt so helpless.”

Holding her thumb and fingers several inches apart to represent a stack of paper, Reynolds said the mail piled up and all she could do was stare at it, paralyzed.

When she recovered from an unrecoverable time, Reynolds created GYST.com in 2013 to share what she’d learned. (GYST stands for Get Your S— Together.) A few things kept recurring, and she said, “If we had had these few things done, there would have been less to answer. I hoped family and friends would share.”

The site went viral and Reynolds wrote “What Matters Most,” a guide to wills, money and insurance — and where to start when you don’t even know you need to do this.

How to delete your voice recordings from Google Assistant

Like Amazon, Google stores and collects the things you say to its assistant on your phone, computer or smart speaker, like the Google Home.

Google’s privacy page says it does this to “help you get better results using your voice,” and that it only does this after you say “OK Google” to learn the sound of your voice and how you speak certain words and phrases.

Google has a whole host of things I’ve said saved to its servers. It has when I asked the temperature back on Sept. 2, 2014, for example, and everything I’ve asked since then. It has a recording of my voice — or my wife’s — asking Google Assistant everything — such as playing music, turning off the bedroom lights, getting directions.

Normally, this isn’t a big deal. I don’t mind if it saves a few commands for the sake of creating a better product. But I know that Google can get a better picture of my entire life the more data it has, so I’m glad I can delete all of these recordings.

Like me, you might not want Google to save this information, or you might want to review all of the commands you’ve ever spoken. Over the past year, Google has made it a lot easier to see the sorts of information it collects, and gives you better controls over stopping it from gathering some specific data.

You can turn it off completely, but just note that this might affect how well Google responds. You can always turn it back on if you run in to trouble.

Review: The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon shines off-road

Jeep is the highlight of Fiat Chrysler’s portfolio, with record sales helping to make up for the Italian-American conglomerate’s slow growth in other sectors. The reason why is simple: people love Jeeps.

From the Fiat-based, compact Renegade to the 707-horsepower Grand Cherokee Hellcat, the Jeep brand offers a sense style, personality and ruggedness that fits perfectly with the current SUV-obsessed market.

But the cornerstone of that success is the Wrangler. The Wrangler — and its fanatical owners — helped create the culture of adventure, personalization and durability that define the Jeep brand. It sells in massive numbers and with great margins, with two-door, four-door andsoon pickup-truck variants in a slew of trims.

It’s far from perfect, but a week with the Wrangler will convince you why people get so crazy for these things. It may be rough around the edges, but the Wrangler is cooler and more charming than any other SUV on sale.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos: Why success depends on not being efficient sometimes

They know the path to success is anything but straight,” Bezos writes. I guarantee you they’d have looked at you strangely and said ‘No, thank you,” Bezos writes.

Amazon's Jeff Bezos: Why success depends on not being efficient sometimes

Amazon is a business about efficiency: You can order almost anything you want and it will arrive on your doorstep extremely quickly.

Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos says it’s built into the company’s DNA: “At Amazon, I know what the big ideas are: low prices, fast delivery and vast, huge selection,” he said in September.

But for employees at Amazon, there is actually a time to be inefficient too, Bezos said in his annual letter to shareholders, published Thursday.

Bezos calls it “wandering.”

“Sometimes (often actually) in business, you do know where you’re going, and when you do, you can be efficient. Put in place a plan and execute,” Bezos writes. “In contrast, wandering in business is not efficient … but … the prize for customers is big enough that it’s worth being a little messy and tangential to find our way there,” he writes.

Wandering is guided, says Bezos, “by hunch, gut, intuition, curiosity,” and it is “an essential counter-balance to efficiency,” he says.

“You need to employ both. The outsized discoveries – the ‘non-linear’ ones – are highly likely to require wandering.”

Bezos wants to give Amazon’s 647,500 full- and part-time employees (as of December) room to do more than execute.

“From very early on in Amazon’s life, we knew we wanted to create a culture of builders – people who are curious, explorers. They like to invent,” Bezos writes. “Even when they’re experts, they are ‘fresh’ with a beginner’s mind. They see the way we do things as just the way we do things now.”

In addition to time for wandering, that also means there needs to be room to fail.

“A builder’s mentality helps us approach big, hard-to-solve opportunities with a humble conviction that success can come through iteration: invent, launch, reinvent, relaunch, start over, rinse, repeat, again and again. They know the path to success is anything but straight,” Bezos writes.

Sometimes that even means having “multibillion-dollar failures,” he says.

The calculus behind having the confidence to wander and fail is knowing that when an idea works, it can work big.

For example, “No customer was asking for Echo. This was definitely us wandering,” says Bezos.

“Market research doesn’t help. If you had gone to a customer in 2013 and said ‘Would you like a black, always-on cylinder in your kitchen about the size of a Pringles can that you can talk to and ask questions, that also turns on your lights and plays music?’ I guarantee you they’d have looked at you strangely and said ‘No, thank you,” Bezos writes.

Since being released, however, the Echo has been wildly successful. Customers have bought more than 100 million devices to run Alexa.

“The good news for shareowners is that a single big winning bet can more than cover the cost of many losers,” says Bezos.
