The Week Ending Oct. 13
Topping this week's roundup of those having a rough week is Accenture, which this week found itself in the embarrassing position of having to answer for leaving private data unprotected on Amazon Web Services servers.
Also making the list this week are Lenovo, for its declining sales and shrinking market share in the U.S. PC market; Samsung, for the resignation of its CEO amid its ongoing leadership upheavals; Qualcomm, for getting hit with a $774 million fine by Taiwan antitrust regulators; and Google, for an embarrassing glitch with its soon-to-ship Google Home Mini.
