β€œThe leadership team and I are making changes to the structure of Bowers & Wilkins to focus the business on opportunities for growth and ensure global competitiveness,” Chief Executive Officer Lee said in a prepared statement. β€œAs the leader in luxury audio, we are focusing our investments on research and product development as well as brand building.”

In 2016, B&W was acquired by EVA Automation, a Silicon Valley-based technology company owned by Gideon Yu. Yu has solid street cred in Silicon Valley, having once served as CFO of YouTubeCFO of Facebook, and even a partner in a prominent VC firm Khosla Ventures.

With the acquisition of B&W, Yu has promised to transform the brand to tie its heritage of high performance audio with the technology of today.

We will see.

Capitalism: France ruling class is same as all else http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/21285/capitalism-france-ruling-class-is-same-as-all-else Wed, 09 Jan 2019 01:07:24 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 21285@/talks/discussions

A new law under consideration could make any demonstration illegal to begin with if not previously approved by authorities.

French government appears set to enact something close to a martial law scenario prohibiting almost any protest and curtailing freedom of speech.

Well, in the history countless time ruling class tries to fight with protests in similar ways.

Issue is that if it is real conflict of interests you can't fix it by banning other side to express their interests openly.
