I dated a masculine person who was heavily invested in bitcoin and altcoins for a year and a half, spending most of her time on reddit threads and group chats about which way the market will go next. Just like the cryptocurrency market, our relationship was unpredictable and exhausting.

It started with expensive dinners, fancy gifts, and last-minute island trips. When it was time to buckle down and talk about finances, she and I got into many heated arguments. I quickly realized we had different values when it

SoftBank’s View Halts Factory Upgrade to Slow Cash Burn

  • Glassmaker View halted the installation of key machinery, people familiar with its operations said.
  • The SoftBank-backed company has high operating costs that eat into its cash reserves.

Comcast’s latest moves in Massachusetts are obviously on the M&A side of the expansion ledger.
