    As 2020 dawned, business experts were predicting more concept stores, more pop-up stores, more "cord cutting," voice assistants in automobiles, huge growth in quantum computing and artificial intelligence and an increase in sales of secondhand goods and clothing. Nobody could have predicted a coronavirus that would infect more than 83,000,000 people and cause more than 1,825,000 deaths by year's end. The year 2021 has to be better than 2020......doesn't it?

    Yes sir, in the midst of a pandemic that has caused the death of more than 355,000 Americans, these drug manufacturers are all heart.

    Drugmakers raise prices 3.3% in the new year

    Five months ago, Cook's net worth surpassed one billion dollars. He has a long way to go to catch up to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, though. Bezos' net worth increased by $70 billion in 2020 and is now $186 billion. "The rich get richer."

    Apple CEO Tim Cook's pay soared nearly 30% last year to almost $15 million as the iPhone maker thrived amid the pandemic

    Reuters reporter Bhargav Acharya says Parler "is favored by many supporters of President Donald Trump, who was permanently suspended from Twitter on Friday, and it is seen as a haven for people expelled from Twitter." Lovely.

    Amazon, Apple, Google ban Parler app over violent content around Capitol attack
    Parler was used at least in part to plan the Capitol Hill attack, pushing tech companies to reckon with the part they played in the riot.
