In an unusual move, the Federal Trade Commission ordered five big tech companies to turn over information about smaller companies they’ve acquired since 2010.

The commission singled out Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Alphabet and Microsoft for closer scrutiny, asking to review mergers valued at less than $90 million.

Coming up on Tech Tuesday on All Sides With Ann Fisher: a closer look at big tech’s mergers.

Guests:

  • Knvul Sheikh, reporter, The New York Times
  • Gilad Edelman, reporter, Wired
  • Russell Holly, contributing editor, Android Central.
