This week: DOJ sues Google over "anticompetitive conduct"; Microsoft expands OpenAI partnership.

Google made headlines this week when parent company Alphabet announced it would cut 12,000 staff in the latest round of job cuts, sparking criticism from former employees. The tech giant later found itself in the spotlight again after it was announced the DOJ is suing Google to break up its dominance in the advertising industry.

Outside of Google and its dramas, Microsoft committed to a "multi-year, multi-billion-dollar" investment in OpenAI, to bolster the companies' partnership. Meanwhile, Elon Musk sought to raise USD$3bn (~£2.4bn) to pay off his Twitter debt.
