Broadcom is currently in discussions to acquire VMware.



People familiar with the subject have told Reuters that Broadcom Inc is in discussions to buy cloud computing company VMware Inc.

A transaction between Broadcom and VMware is not near, according to the people in the talks. We couldn’t get our hands on the contract details that were discussed.

Broadcom is currently in discussions to acquire VMware.

Broadcom’s business would be further diversified into enterprise software with the acquisition, after its $10.7 billion purchase of Symantec Corp’s security division and its $18.9 billion acquisition of CA Technologies in the previous four years.

The agreement was initially revealed on Sunday night by Bloomberg News. Requests for comment from Reuters were not immediately returned by Broadcom or VMware. At the closing of trading on Friday, VMware’s market capitalization was $40.3 billion in cash and stock.

According to Refinitiv statistics, Michael Dell holds a 40% ownership in VMware as a result of Dell Technologies Inc. spinning out VMWare to shareholders last year.

According to Refinitiv statistics, Silver Lake, a private equity company that previously invested in Broadcom, is VMware’s second-largest stakeholder with a 10% holding.

VMware, a pioneering Silicon Valley business formed in 1998, has been sold a number of times since its inception. As a result, it developed virtualization software, which reduced the number of server systems needed to manage many applications and workloads.

When more workloads went to the cloud, VMware struggled to maintain growth and establish itself as a vital player. Inc., one of the largest suppliers of cloud storage and services, eventually formed a strong connection with the corporation.

WhatsApp will soon allow users to respond with any emoji, not only those six it really has set




WhatsApp users will soon have the ability to react to messages with any emoji, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced in a Facebook post

Like previous emoji reactions, the feature is accessible by long-pressing the message you want to react to. This opens the menu containing the previous six emoji reactions along with a new plus icon. Tapping the plus icon opens a menu containing every available emoji, ranging from standard smiley faces to recent additions like the saluting emoji and the melting face, and it also includes different skin tone variations. I suspect people are going to get very creative with their emoji reactions very soon.

The expanded emoji reaction feature has previously been spotted in the beta versions of the service, including on both iOS and Android, and brings WhatsApp in line with the functionality already available on Meta’s Messenger service. The expanded emoji reactions feature is rolling out now and will be available to all WhatsApp users in the coming weeks.

Nearly gone is Boris Johnson. Here’s who could take his place.



The race to succeed Boris Johnson as prime minister has heated up after his disastrous tenure.

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is not elected by the country’s 68 million citizens, but rather is appointed by the political party that secures the most seats in parliament. The 2019 election was a resounding victory for the Conservative Party.

Legislators will vote on potential candidates to replace Johnson as Tory leader, narrowing the field to a final vote between two individuals. The new party leader will then be chosen by a postal ballot among the party’s roughly 180,000 members.

The 1922 Committee, which is comprised of legislators from the opposition party who are not on the government payroll, has established a timeline that indicates the process will take several weeks.

Tony Travers, a professor of government at the London School of Economics, told Reuters that the Conservatives would seek a leader “a bit less exciting” than Johnson.

He described them as “less exciting but competent.”

The following are the current front-runners in the race to become the next prime minister of the United Kingdom, based in part on a poll of Tory members conducted by YouGov on Wednesday:

Rishi Sunak

He went on to say that he wanted everyone to have the same opportunities that his grandmother, an immigrant to the United Kingdom, had. Some Strictness This overwhelmingly pro-immigrant message might not sit well with conservatives.

After implementing a costly job retention program that prevented widespread unemployment during the Covid-19 pandemic, Sunak emerged as the frontrunner for the leadership position. But after implementing a number of unpopular economic policies and having it revealed that his wife, who is worth millions, had avoided paying her fair share of British taxes, his popularity took a nosedive.

Two prominent Cabinet members, Sunak and former Health Secretary Sajid Javid, resigned on Tuesday night.

Tom Tugendhat
Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Tom Tugendhat, 49, announced his bid for party leadership in the Daily Telegraph, promising a “fresh start” for the party.

Although the consistent Johnson critic would provide a new beginning for the Conservatives, he lacks experience in government and is thus deemed untested. He was a soldier who served in both Afghanistan and Iraq.
Although Johnson ran for office on a platform of supporting Brexit, he voted against it.

Penny Mordaunt
According to the YouGov poll, Penny Mordaunt is the most popular of the potential candidates among Conservatives.

After only three months in office, Johnson removed her as defense secretary for endorsing Johnson’s opponent in the 2019 election, Jeremy Hunt.

Royal Navy reservist Mordaunt, now 49, returned to the Cabinet and is serving as a junior trade minister. She has been outspoken in her support for Britain’s exit from the European Union in the lead-up to the 2016 referendum.

Mordaunt has not yet formally declared her candidacy for the leadership of the Conservative Party, but she is already being called a “dark horse.”

On Thursday, as resignations poured in to try to force Johnson out of office and speculation about his future reached a fever pitch, she encouraged everyone to remain calm.

“Our institutions are strong,” she wrote on Twitter. “There will be a resolution to this. The outcome is already known.”

She was a contestant on “Splash,” a TV show in which famous people learn to scuba dive.

Elizabeth Truss.

After a 2016 referendum, she changed her mind and said she now supported Brexit, or the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union.
