Shares of tech companies declined as the disenchantment with Apple continued. Since peaking on the session when it released its new line of phones and watches, Apple has retreated about 6%, shedding billions of dollars in market capitalization. Amazon.com said it's adding more than 2,000 new corporate jobs in New York City, including software engineers and data analysts. Venture-capital firm Benchmark Capital does not intend to sell any of its holdings in ride-hailing company Uber in a proposed deal that would see the Vision Fund, the $93 billion tech investment consortium headed by Japanese tech giant SoftBank, take a large position.
