Every day, Amazon Web Services, which companies count on to remotely store data and run applications, produces millions of dollars in operating income for Amazon. As the segment’s revenue grows, so do its operating income and Amazon’s overall net income, generally. In other words, it’s important for AWS revenue to keep increasing.

In the third quarter, as the coronavirus raged on, the annualized AWS revenue growth rate came in at 29%, which was unchanged from the second quarter. In the same period Amazon’s top cloud competitors, Alibaba, Google and Microsoft, all increased revenue growth sequentially by about 1 percentage point.

How will COVID-19 affect our next generation? In-utero exposure to the coronavirus pandemic could cause developmental difficulties and accelerated aging in the century ahead, say researchers — ScienceDaily

Exposure to COVID-19 could pose a risk to the health and aging of individuals who aren’t even born yet, according to a newly published analysis by USC researchers.

In the article, University Professors Eileen Crimmins and Caleb Finch of the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and Keck School of Medicine neonatology fellow Molly Easterlin note that by the end of 2020, approximately 300,000 infants could be born to mothers infected by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Millions more will be born into families who have experienced tremendous stress and upheaval due to the pandemic even if they haven’t been infected themselves, the authors added.

While the longer-term effects of COVID-19 on infants is yet to be seen, researchers can find some insight from the past, including the 1918 flu pandemic and previous coronavirus illnesses such as SARS in 2002 and MERS in 2012, Finch said.

“The 1918 influenza

Cargill plows new digital ground with Dell in time of accelerated tech adoption

Sometimes it takes a major crisis to bring technologies that have been available for some time suddenly into the limelight.

Video collaboration tools, online delivery services for meals and groceries, even touchless, QR code-driven menus in restaurants have been around for years. However, the adoption rate has suddenly been thrown into hyperdrive by the global pandemic.

“Think about what’s happened in your local town and how technology has enabled restaurants to do takeout and delivery through digital tools,” said Howard Elias (pictured, right), chief customer officer and president of services and digital at Dell Technologies Inc. “It’s not just the large professional, industrial and financial services companies. Your local butcher, your local dry cleaner, everybody is having to be creative and reinvent. These trends were already underway; they’ve just been put into hyperspeed.”

Elias spoke with Dave Vellante, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, during the Dell Technologies
