Nintendo’s stock is falling amid negative reviews of the first ‘Super Mario’ game for iPhone – Business Insider

Nintendo’s first ever Super Mario game for Apple’s iPhone and iPad is available now. It’s called “Super Mario Run,” and, if you ask me, it’s quite good.

But you probably shouldn’t ask me, as tens of thousands of people took to the iTunes Store to trash the game in the past few days.

This is the tangled future of tech and transportation – Business Insider

When Didi Chuxing merged with Uber China in a $35 billion mega-merger last August, it created a partnership between the two biggest ride-hailing companies in the world.

But it also further complicated the already interconnected world of ride-hailing, tech, and transportation. It called into question the stability of the global anti-Uber alliance — a coalition made up of Didi, Ola, Grab, and Lyft to combat Uber’s impending world dominance in the ride-hailing arena —  and made bedfellows out of tech giants, automakers, and venture capitalists.

Now, as many of these companies embark on driverless car technology, those bedfellows are also becoming competitors in the same arena.

Business Insider compiled a graphical representation of the complicated web of ride-hailing and self-driving cars based on discussions with the companies included, investment database sites like PitchBook and CB Insights, and previous reporting.
