Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba is joined by Alibaba executivesBy Liana B. Baker, Jessica Toonkel and Ryan Vlastelica NEW YORK (Reuters) - Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's shares soared 38 percent in their first day of trading on Friday as investors jumped at the chance for a piece of what is likely to rank as the largest IPO in history, in a massive bet on China's burgeoning middle class.

The logo of French low-cost telecoms provider Iliad is pictured during the company 2013 annual results presentation in ParisBy Sophie Sassard and Arno Schuetze LONDON/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - French low-cost telecom operator Iliad has set a mid-October deadline to decide whether to improve its bid for T-Mobile US or walk away as it faces resistance from seller Deutsche Telekom, several people familiar with the situation said. Deutsche Telekom, which owns 66 percent of the fourth-largest U.S. carrier, has doubts that Iliad will be able to improve the U.S. business since the French startup has no track record in the country, a source close to the German company's management said. ...

Oracle Corp CEO Ellison introduces the Oracle Database In-Memory during a launch event in Redwood ShoresBy Sarah McBride SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - By promoting its two presidents to serve as co-chief executives instead of founder and CEO Larry Ellison, database-and-software behemoth Oracle is setting itself a course that has confounded other big companies. The move seemingly marries the product oversight of Mark Hurd, former chief executive of Hewlett Packard, with the legal and financial expertise of Safra Catz, a 15-year Oracle veteran. ...

The logo of Bitcoin (virtual currency) is pictured on a door in an illustration picture taken at La Maison du Bitcoin in ParisBy Jonathan Stempel (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge in Texas ordered Bitcoin Savings and Trust and its owner to pay a combined $40.7 million after the Securities and Exchange Commission established that the company, which sold investments using the virtual currency, was a Ponzi scheme. In a decision dated Thursday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Amos Mazzant said Trendon Shavers "knowingly and intentionally" operated his company "as a sham and a Ponzi scheme," misleading investors about the use of their bitcoin, how he would generate promised returns and the safety of their investments. ...


Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Service, introduces Apple Pay during an Apple event at the Flint Center in CupertinoBy Eric Auchard FRANKFURT (Reuters) - In the hype-fueled technology industry, "revolutionary" is a word in danger of losing its meaning. But Apple Inc's new mobile payments system - unveiled just ten days ago - is already winning over the heavyweights of the financial industry and signaling the likely demise of lesser payment alternatives. Its secret? Apple Pay preserves many existing relationships while inserting a new dominant player - itself - as kingmaker. Its potential audience? The 800 million Apple users who have already connected credit and debit cards to iTunes accounts. ...


An illustration photo shows the logo of Netflix the American provider of on-demand Internet streaming media in ParisBy Alastair Sharp TORONTO (Reuters) - Online video streaming service Netflix Inc told Canada's broadcast regulator on Friday that it opposes paying to support "old media" and its own commercial interests and market dynamics were enough to ensure it distributed Canadian content. The submissions from Netflix came on the last day of a two-week hearing on the future of Canadian television in which the Californian company has been painted as a disruptive threat to the country's established cable and broadcast television interests. ...

Desktop Linux is finally getting Netflix supportWhile Linux now underpins a great deal in the tech world — including the Roku and, most crucially, Android — desktop Linux to this day exists in a quiet cul-de-sac where the command line is still the preferred UI. As such, users running the likes of Ubuntu and Arch Linux have had more ready access to streaming content on their phones and TVs than on their computers. Netflix senior software engineer Paul Adolph wrote on the Ubuntu forums last night that devices running the latest version of the NSS security libraries will be able to run Netflix in Chrome without changing their browser's user-agent.

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd founder Jack Ma (C) applauds at the New York Stock Exchange before his company's initial public offering (IPO) under the ticker "BABA" in New YorkBy Jessica Toonkel (Reuters) - The biggest initial public offering of all time appears to have finally gotten U.S. retail investors' attention. Two weeks ago, brokerage firms and financial advisers were hearing practically nothing from clients about Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, which went public Friday. But today, investors at TD Ameritrade and Fidelity Investments rushed to place orders for shares of the Chinese e-commerce provider, which is a juggernaut in China and has higher sales figures than both Amazon.com Inc and eBay Inc combined. ...
