Two major technology companies that once dominated the industry are drawing attention as they face different futures.

Yahoo gave what is likely to be its last earnings report before it is sold, announcing a fall of 15 percent in revenue and 64 percent in profits, as the internet company accepted final bids for its core business Monday.

The Japanese video game company Nintendo surged in stock price, more than doubling since its U.S. release of the smartphone game "Pokemon Go."

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti speaks with Kara Swisher of Recode about the two companies and what is expected for their future.
