Times have changed. It’s crow eating time for US.
Oh, Trump lost this one, will Microsoft buy a shell with just user data and no AI algorithms? I wonder.
No, It’s not if China says no. China’s license to sell will be based on the export law. It’s very likely China made this change in order to block the sale but it’s still possible for Tik Tok to change the deal to meet the new export law changes and satisfy everyone. It’s one of the options on the table when a country says, “We’re protecting National Security” but they actually mean it and they didn’t just make it up. Chinese companies use loopholes and change deals to satisfy Chinese laws all the time. As opposed to Trump who is calling out specific companies on made up rules to be sold and is even asking for a Vig from the sale.
what’s important? algorithm or user base? selling user base to US company and keep the algorithm, I am wondering how uber was selling business to local rivals?
Who cares? Tiktok is nothing new, just like Fecesbook is a wannabe myspace with clueless money investors, as is Tiktok is the chinese wannabe version of Vine from last year.
It is not even profitable… customers are mostly kids using it for free, and using tons of HD video which costs chinese owner tons of money! Wake up people.. youtube actually sells ads, tiktok will go away soon no matter what, its clone social media fad
