Quotes

"If clicks on Google really account for only 1/1000th (or some other trivial fraction) of Microsoft's relevancy, why not just stop using those clicks and reduce the negative coverage and perception of this? And if Microsoft is unwilling to stop incorporating Google's clicks in Bing's rankings, doesn't that argue that Google's clicks account for much more than 1/1000th of Bing's rankings?"
"Facebook has made political contributions that support politicians whose voting records directly contrast the company's stated public policy priorities, and may undermine the company's business model" the filing said
In sum, shareholders feel that "the consequences of unintended incongruent contributions include alienation of customer base, alienation of advertisers, harm to company name, and potential harm to shareholder value" Tuesday's filing said
Last year, when similar concerns were reported, Jeff Bewkes, the CEO of Time Warner, which is HBO’s parent company, told investors, "If you go around the world, I think… that 'Game of Thrones' is the most pirated show in the world. … Now that's better than an Emmy."
