T-Mobile CEO: Apple iPhone 12 launch marks ‘firing gun’ for 5G and T-Mobile leads the race

T-Mobile didn’t make it into Apple’s big iPhone event today. But CEO Mike Sievert took to Twitter and spoke to CNBC to let folks know who is leading the 5G race.

Apple thrust 5G technology into the spotlight at its big iPhone 12 unveiling event Tuesday, showing off the first iPhones with 5G capability. Apple CEO Tim Cook said 5G will improve download and upload speeds, provide higher quality gaming experiences, and reduce latency, among other benefits. He also invited Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg on stage at the virtual event to talk about the benefits of the carrier’s 5G network, which is available nationwide today.

Sievert’s interview with CNBC after the event was apparently a last-minute addition. Asked if he was envious that CNBC had Vestberg on air earlier, Sievert said no.

“We’re just celebrating here at T-Mobile today. This is just a huge day for our company and our

Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson Shares Why He’s Acquiring Segment For $3.2 Billion

Twilio is making its acquisition of fellow cloud computing company Segment official.

San Francisco-based Twilio announced early on Monday that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire Segment for $3.2 billion in an all-stock deal. The deal is expected to close in Twilio’s fourth fiscal quarter, the company said.

Forbes first broke the news of the pending acquisition on Friday.

“Communications was just the entry point for the real opportunity, which has been really providing a comprehensive platform for customer engagement,” Lawson said. “The one thing that’s always

Polestar CEO defends the Polestar 2’s recall and 233-mile EPA rating

ProtonMail CEO says Apple strong-armed adoption of in-app purchases

ProtonMail’s chief executive officer said Apple forced the email service to introduce in-app purchases in a move he likened to “mafia extortion.”

The encrypted and privacy-focused email service launched on the App Store in 2016. Although it offered a premium tier on its website, there wasn’t an option to purchase it within the app.

In 2016, Apple told the email service “out of the blue” that it had to add an in-app purchase option to remain on the App Store, ProtonMail CEO Andy Yen said in an interview with The Verge.

“For the first two years we were in the App Store, that was fine, no issues there,” Yen said. “But a common practice we see … as you start getting significant uptake in uploads and downloads, they start looking at your situation more carefully, and then as any good mafia extortion goes, they come to shake you down
