In the coming adventure video game “Sea of Solitude,” the main character — a young woman named Kay — navigates a partly submerged city as she faces a multitude of red-eyed scaly creatures. None are as terrifying as her own personal demons. As the game progresses, Kay realizes the creatures she is encountering are humans who turned into monsters when they became too lonely. To save herself, she fights to overcome her own loneliness. Kay was modeled after the game’s creative director, Cornelia Geppert of Jo-Mei Games, an independent game studio, who struggled after a 2013 breakup. “I felt like I was trapped in a cage,” Geppert, 37, said of her experience. “Sea of Solitude,” which Redwood City’s Electronic Arts will publish this year, is among.
A Lithuanian man and his associates found a bold way to steal from Facebook and Google, according to his guilty plea last week: They asked for money via email. More specifically, they sent fraudulent invoices to the Silicon Valley giants. The invoices were apparently good enough to persuade Google, which is owned by Alphabet, and Facebook to wire a total of more than $100 million for them from 2013 to 2015, according to the Justice Department. The man, Evaldas Rimasauskas, 50, was involved in running a company that controlled several accounts at banks in Latvia and Cyprus, according to a 2016 indictment filed in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. The companies said they have recouped most of the funds. He and
(Bloomberg) -- Attorney General William Barr on Sunday delivered his highly anticipated summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his probe into whether President Donald Trump or those around him conspired in Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Here are the key takeaways from the most in-depth look yet into the 22-month investigation:. Mueller Finds No Collusion. The probe "did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election," the summary says.
WASHINGTON — President Trump’s ability to get his revised North American Free Trade Agreement through Congress may hinge on a little-noticed provision governing intellectual property protections for new pharmaceutical products. Congressional Democrats have seized on measures in the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement that establish protections for drug companies, saying they are a boon to the pharmaceutical industry and could undermine efforts to make American health care more affordable. The issue is the latest complication in Trump’s years-long effort to rip up NAFTA and rewrite the rules of trade with Canada and Mexico.
Sometimes the tech gods send a sign. This week the sign was very clear — it’s time to review the Samsung Galaxy S10. After the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones, I was offered phones to review by Verizon, AT&T and Samsung. I never know when they are coming — the emails just ask whether I’d be interested in a handset to review. For a phone of this caliber, I just say yes to everyone. As you might guess, I got three S10 phones on the same day. AT&T and Samsung provided an S10 Plus, and Verizon sent the smaller S10. Like Apple did in the fall, Samsung has released three models of the Galaxy S10. The Galaxy S10 is the flagship 6.1-inch phone, the S10 Plus is the 6.4-inch phone, and the S10e is the more affordable 5.8-inch model. I d.
A decade ago, when the greed and carelessness of the financial industry came close to destroying the economy, the overwhelming response by politicians and the public was: Meh. Almost instantly, all was forgiven and forgotten. Now the tech industry — which, among other impressive innovations, provides the world’s knowledge on demand, lets people freely broadcast their diverse opinions and has made shopping as easy as pushing a button — has made some mistakes of its own. It has abused privacy, squeezed the competition and casually spread hate. And that’s just the beginning of the list. Google, Facebook, Amazon and Apple might not get away as cleanly as Goldman Sachs and Citigroup. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who is seeking the Democratic
Pinterest revealed that it was growing quickly but still losing money in an offering prospectus Friday, as it officially joined the herd of highly valued startups stampeding to the public markets this year. The filing by the San Francisco company, which makes an app and a website that people can use to save images and links to digital "pin boards," follows one by Lyft, a ride-hailing company that plans to sell its shares publicly as soon as next week.
For weeks, analysts have speculated that Tesla has seen a marked drop in sales since the beginning of the year, and the electric carmaker’s recent gyrations on price cuts and cost-saving initiatives have only bolstered their suspicions. Recently compiled data on new-car registrations from a large portion of the United States seem to offer further support for that view.
Rent the Runway, the company known for lending designer dresses to women for special occasions, has received a new round of financing that increased its valuation to the unicorn level of $1 billion. The valuation announced Thursday is a milestone for Rent the Runway, which was founded a decade ago and has been working for years to expand its business beyond formal dress rentals.
Facebook said on Thursday that millions of user account passwords had been stored insecurely, potentially allowing employees to gain access to people’s accounts without their knowledge. The Menlo Park company publicized the security failure around the same time that Brian Krebs, a cybersecurity writer, reported the password vulnerability.
As more businesses have started going cashless, a backlash to the trend is brewing, and now Amazon Go stores could be banned from San Francisco if a proposed change to the police code comes to pass. District Five Supervisor Vallie Brown introduced a resolution banning cashless stores last month over concerns that such businesses aren't accessible to people who can't obtain debit and credit cards.
WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve left its key interest rate unchanged Wednesday and projected no rate hikes in 2019, dramatically underscoring its plan to be "patient" about any further increases. The Fed said it was keeping its benchmark rate — which can influence everything from mortgages to credit cards to home equity lines of credit — in a range of 2.25 percent to 2.5 percent.
