o Oracle Co-CEO Safra Catz Added to Donald Trump Transition Team

Redwood City, Calif. -- Safra Catz, the co-CEO of Redwood City-based technology giant Oracle, has joined the transition team of President-elect Donald Trump. Catz accepted a position on Trump's executive committee just hours after joining other technology leaders at a meeting with Trump Wednesday in New York. Billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel, one of the few Silicon Valley technology luminaries to support Trump, helped facilitate that meeting, and also holds a spot on the executive committee. Catz, who has served as Oracle's co-CEO since 2014, first met with Trump in November

o San Jose Jury Awards $7.3M to Core Wireless in Apple Patent Suit

San Jose, Calif. -- Core Wireless, a unit of Canadian intellectual property firm Conversant Intellectual Property Management, said a jury in San Jose has awarded the company $7.3 million in its parent suit against Cupertino-based Apple. The jury in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California found that Apple infringed on two of the company's smartphone patents for innovations that improve battery life and signal quality in mobile phones. Core had alleged that Apple's recent iPhones and cellular-enabled iPads infringed both patents. The company said it also will seek interest on the award dating from 2011.

o Report: 2016 Weakest IPO Year in U.S. Since Financial Crisis

London -- This year was the weakest for IPO activity in the U.S. since the global financial crisis in 2009, according to a new report by EY. Deal volume fell 36% to 1120 IPOs, while capital raised fell 37% to $21.3 billion. Still, companies that have gone public in 2016 have performed well, currently trading on average 17.6% above their debut prices. "There are a number of indicators that point to optimism in 2017," said Jackie Kelley, EY Americas IPO leader. "Private equity continues to provide a robust pipeline of strong deals. The backlog of tech companies is starting to make a debut. Unicorns are beginning to find a successful place in the public markets. This momentum, when matched with the stable, post-election markets, should lead to strong performance for IPOs in 2017." nThe full report is available at the link below.

Online Sales for Green Monday Increase 15% from 2015 Levels

Reston, Va. -- Americans spent $1.62 billion online through their desktops on Green Monday (Dec. 12), according to new figures from comScore. Sales for the day -- created by online retailers -- rose 15% from a year ago, representing the fifth heaviest online spending day of the holiday season-to-date after Cyber Monday; Tuesday, Nov. 29; Black Friday and Friday, Dec. 9. All told, consumers have spent $49.3 billion online for the holiday season to date, up 12% from 2015 levels. "We have continued to see strong online spending since Thanksgiving, with Green Monday marking the 19th consecutive billion-dollar day on desktop, bringing the total number of days achieving this milestone up to 27 for the season," said comScore CEO Gian Fulgoni. "This far surpasses last year's record of nine consecutive billion-dollar days, and it's likely we will see this trend continue through at least the end of this week before the season officially begins winding down."

o San Francisco-Based Memebox Lands $60 Million in New Funding Round

San Francisco -- Memebox, the San Francisco-based developer of a beauty platform powered by mobile and data science capabilities, said on Thursday it has raised $60 million in a new round of funding. Goodwater Capital, Altos Ventures, Cowboy Ventures, Mousse Partners, Formation Group, Funders Club, Pear Ventures, Cota Capital and Janet Gurwitch took part in the round, which is an extension of the company's $66 million third round. Memebox, which now has raised $160 million since its founding in 2012, said it will use the additional proceeds to streamline its mobile shopping experience, develop a database of beauty ingredients and products and build out its global operations. The Y Combinator graduate began with a subscription box model before quickly moving into developing its own in-house brands. Leveraging data collected from customers, the company built research and development labs in South Korea to test and develop four in-house brands - Bonvivant, Nooni, I'M Meme and Pony Effect. Since the brands launched, they have been growing 60% quarter-over-quarter. More than 88% of the company's online sales come through its mobile app. "We've been focused on growing our operations in Asia -- particularly in China -- but with this funding we plan to streamline our global operations at our company headquarters in San Francisco," said CEO Hyungseok Dino Ha.

o Yahoo Discloses Data Breach Affecting More Than 1 Billion

Sunnyvale, Calif. -- Three months after disclosing a major cyber attack, Sunnyvale-based Yahoo late Wednesday revealed another data breach that appears to be twice as big, affecting more than 1 billion user accounts. The company said it recently discovered the 2013 incident, which is distinct from a separate 2014 breach that affected 500,000, disclosed in September. "The stolen user account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (using MD5) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers," wrote Bob Lord, Yahoo's chief information security officer, in a blog post. "The investigation indicates that the stolen information did not include passwords in clear text, payment card data, or bank account information. Payment card data and bank account information are not stored in the system the company believes was affected." Yahoo is advising all users to change their passwords and security questions, and review their accounts for suspicious activity. The latest revelation could jeopardize Verizon's $4.83 billion acquisition of Yahoo's core internet business, announced in July.

o Flo Raises $1 Million in Seed Funding for Women's Health App

San Francisco -- Flo, the San Francisco-based developer of an app that calculates women's periods and tracks and predicts menstrual cycles, ovulation and fertile days, said on Thursday it has raised $1 million in seed funding. Flint Capital led the round, which also included participation from the Haxus Venture Fund. The company said it will use the proceeds to expand the product globally and further develop its machine learning technology, with the goal of becoming a personal health and wellness assistant for millions of women. Launched in late 2015 by parent OWHealth, Flo already has more than 2 million active monthly users and app installations of 4 million.

o Survey: Few Women, Minorities in Senior Investment Roles at VC Firms

Washington, DC -- Although women comprise nearly half of the total venture capital workforce, few are in investment decision-making positions, according to a new report from the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) and Deloitte. The organizations said that women represent just 11% of investment partners or equivalent on venture investment teams. Racial minorities also are significantly underrepresented across the VC industry, according to the survey. By race, the report found that non-white employees comprise 22% of the venture capital workforce, including black employees at just 3%. "The survey results reinforce what we already know, which is that the venture industry is not representative of the overall population of the U.S.," said Bobby Franklin, president and CEO of the NVCA. "Transparency is a powerful force for change, and we now have a clear benchmark by which we can measure progress to create a more inclusive venture capital industry."

o San Francisco-Based Inkling Lands $25 Million in Fifth Round of Funding

San Francisco -- Inkling, the San Francisco-based developer of a mobile communication platform designed to let clients convey critical information to their workers in the field, said on Tuesday it has raised $25 million in its fifth round of funding, increasing the company's total backing to $95 million. Sapphire Ventures led the round, which also included participation from previous investors Sequoia Capital and Tenaya Capital. The company said it will use the latest proceeds to expand its product and sales efforts internationally. "Mobile devices are finally poised to change the work lives of tens of millions of deskless employees, so the opportunity is massive," said CEO Matt MacInnis. McDonald's, for example, recently rolled out Inkling to roughly 15,000 restaurants. Nino Marakovic, the CEO and managing director of Sapphire Ventures, has joined the company's board of directors.

o Mountain View-Based Symantec Sues Zscaler for Patent Infringement

Mountain View, Calif. -- Symantec, the Mountain View-based Internet security giant, said late Monday it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against smaller San Jose-based-rival Zscaler. The suit, filed in the U.S. Federal District Court for the District of Delaware, alleged that Zscaler violated seven of the company's patents covering a variety of network security technologies, including web security, data loss prevention, threat prevention, access control and antivirus techniques. The company didn't say how much it is seeking in damages. "The lawsuit filed against Zscaler is intended to stop them from copying our pioneering technologies in network security," said Scott Taylor, Symantec's executive vice president, general counsel and secretary. Symantec said it has invested more than $10 billion in research and development since 2004, and currently owns over 2,000 patents.

o Study: Nearly Half of Websites Are Vulnerable to Malware

Menlo Park, Calif. -- Nearly half (46%) of the Internet's top 1 million websites are vulnerable to malware, according to a new study by Menlo Park-based Menlo Security. The company said the number is largely due to vulnerable software running on web servers and on underlying ad network domains. Of the 1 million sites, the company said that 355,804 were either running vulnerable software or accessing background domains running vulnerable software; 166,853 fell into known bad categories; and 31,938 experienced a recent security incident. Another key finding was that background requests sending content to web browsers outnumbered user requests by a ratio of 25:1. "Browsing the web is a leap into the unknown," said CTO Kowsik Guruswamy. "We already knew that ad networks present risk to the public and businesses, but the extreme levels reached in 2016, affecting 46% of the most visited websites, mean that enterprises must address the problem." The full report is available at the link below.

o FTC Settles with Maker of Blood Pressure App Over Inaccurate Readings

Washington,. DC -- The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) said on Monday it has settled charges with the marketers of a mobile app designed to measure blood pressure. The FTC said that Irvine-based Aura Labs deceived consumers with claims that its Instant Blood Pressure (IBP) app was as accurate as a traditional blood pressure cuff, when in reality it was significantly less accurate. It also alleged that founder and co-owner Ryan Archdeacon rated the app as "five stars" in app stores without disclosing his connection to the company. "For someone with high blood pressure who relies on accurate readings, this deception can actually be hazardous," said Jessica Rich, director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "While the Commission encourages the development of new technologies, health-related claims should not go beyond the scientific evidence available to support them." Under the terms of the settlement, the company and Archdeacon are barred from making such unsupported claims in the future and must disclose any material connections between Aura and people who endorse its products. A judgment of $595.945 has been suspended, based on the defendants' inability to pay.
