Shareholders are loving it. What are customers getting out of it all?

Kettle This week a chunk of Big Tech reported its latest quarterly financial figures, and our beady eyes were on whether the ongoing AI obsession will pay off for these mega corporations.

Alphabet and Microsoft revealed soaring profits and sales. Atlassian's revenues were also up and it turned a modest profit. IBM squeaked in a sales increase as well as net income growth. Adjacent to this, Meta ran into trouble by saying it'll take a while for its AI efforts to become profitable, and Intel saw its stock price fall, too.
