[INSIDERS] 5 Tech Info to Shine in Society
Forget the corporate-white-blue vibe usually reserved for storage services (yes, because blue => white => sky => clouds => CLOUD ^^). Dropbox has just unveiled its new visual identity, and the least we can say is that it deposits. The company wishes to highlight its new collaborative tools, beyond the simple storage of files: “Dropbox isn’t just a place to store your files – it’s a dynamic workspace that brings people and ideas together.” And to stand out and seduce creative minds, Dropbox has completely rocked on the epileptic side of the Force.
As my editorial mate breathes to me, “It’s not even a counter-foot, it’s a double tibia-fibula fracture”. And on Twitter too, the whole thing does not leave you indifferent … 😉

User friends, don’t panic: despite the new logo and the festival of colors, the interface hasn’t changed too much.
If Yahoo! and Equifax were taking a math exam today, it would be unlikely that the two American groups would rise well above the dotted zero. And for good reason, while Yahoo! initially announced that a billion user accounts had been hacked in a 2013 cyberattack, these are ultimately the 3 billion (yes, you read that right) Internet group accounts that have been affected. But don’t worry, Yahoo! will send email notifications to affected users (telling them that their data is in the wild, but the situation is under control).
That Yahoo! Be reassured, the Equifax agency is hardly better at counting the number of customers affected by the major computer attack of which it was the victim this year. When the attack came to light in early September, the US credit bureau said the sensitive personal data of nearly 143 million Americans, or about 44% of the US population, had been stolen. Here again, it is a failure in terms of calculation … This week, Equifax has revised upwards its number of customers affected in the United States by this piracy. Finally, 145.5 million Americans are “potentially” affected. There are days like that, when you want to call COCOE to recount everything.
Chinese micro-credit provider Qndian is preparing to go public in New York (NYSE). The Beijing, China-based company plans to raise $ 769 million by offering 37.5 million shares, for an IPO price of $ 19-22.
Qudian was founded in 2014 and recorded sales of $ 442 million in the first half of 2017. Qndian counts among its investors Ant Financial, subsidiary of Ali Baba, from whom she raised $ 200 million in 2015.
As Amazon seeks to establish itself in France and the United Kingdom, Walmart goes the extra mile to compete with him. The American company has just announced the acquisition of Parcel. The unspecified amount would remain below the $ 10 million mark.
Founded in 2013 by Jess Kaplan and based in Brooklyn, the start-up specializes in last mile delivery in New York. A city that she knows like the back of her hand since it has mapped the different buildings by detailing the service entrances in order to optimize delivery as much as possible. Parcel works in particular with retailers such as the Bonobos brand or Chef’D meal kits.
Walmart wants to use the start-up’s know-how to develop its overnight grocery delivery service in New York, from walmart.com and from Jet.com, a site the company bought for $ 3 billion in August 2016. The discounter already offers same day delivery at no additional cost. This buyout will allow it to reduce operating costs. Finally, Walmart wants to sell fresh and frozen products that can be delivered during the day.
According to our information, Angélique Gérard yesterday received the Medal of Chevalier de l’Ordre National du Mérite. In charge of Free customer relations, with 6,000 employees reporting to her, Angélique Gérard joined Free at the age of 23. In 2015, this autodidact won the Choiseul 100, which rewards the economic leaders of tomorrow, succeeding Emmanuel Macron in this ranking.
This award ceremony takes place in the particular context, since the issue Cash Investigation recently decried the management methods in some Free call centers – report that Xavier Niel commented for the first time in an interview with Parisian Eco, produced on September 21 (before the broadcast) and published today: “Free is surely not perfect with its employees, but fortunately we are not really what describes this dependent report. Our employees are at the heart of Free’s success. ”
