Apr 29, 11:44 PM EDT Newsletter Signup BusinessTechnologyWorldNationalMedia & CultureOpinionSportsLuxury Business By Adam Levy 04/29/19 AT 11:22 PM Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) advertising business has gained a lot of attention over the last couple of years as it has gone from practically inconsequential to a $10 billion segment. But investors eyeing the "Other" revenue line in the online retailer's recent first-quarter earnings report may be disappointed with the 36% growth (on a neutral-foreign-exchange-rate basis) when compared to growth of 132% in the first three months of last year.Granted, Amazon's advertising growth numbers were artificially inflated last year by an accounting change. Even factoring in those changes, though, Amazon's growth rate was cut in half.The 36% growth is well behind expectations for the full year. eMarketer, for example, expects Amazon's U.S. advertising revenue to increase 53% this year. Meanwhile, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) grew its … [Read more...] about Is Amazon’s Ad Business Already Running Out Of Steam?

(Jeff Chiu/Associated Press) NEW YORK – When cyberthieves attacked Empire Industries’ computer network, technology manager Rich Shemanskis could see files in the process of being infected by malicious software. “We were looking at the network, and I noticed it, and another guy noticed it. We’re looking at the files and watching them change,” Shemanskis recalls about the attack three years ago.

NEW YORK — When cyberthieves attacked Empire Industries' computer network, technology manager Rich Shemanskis could see files in the process of being infected by malicious software. "We were looking at the network, and I noticed it, and another guy noticed it. We're looking at the files and watching them change," Shemanskis recalls about the attack three years ago. Shemanskis told staffers to quickly shut down their PCs, which helped limit the malware's spread, but the company did lose about a day's worth of work.
