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.
When President Trump signed a large package of tax cuts into law in 2017, the IRS moved to make sure the savings showed up quickly in paychecks. Doing so probably lifted consumer spending last year, but it may have hurt Republicans politically, new polling suggests. Administration officials, it appears, underestimated Americans’ love of tax refunds. Nearly 4 in 5 people say they would rather overpay their federal income taxes and get a refund every spring — effectively making an interest-free loan to the government — than to underpay and owe money come tax season, according to a poll for the New York Times by San Mateo online research firm SurveyMonkey. That preference appears to be influencing how Americans view Trump’s signature cuts: Amo.
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.
The internet consists of tiny bits of code that move around the world, traveling along wires as thin as a strand of hair strung across the ocean floor. The data zips from New York to Sydney, from Hong Kong to London, in the time it takes you to read this word. Nearly 750,000 miles of cable connect the continents to support our insatiable demand for communication and entertainment. Companies have typically pooled their resources to collaborate on undersea cable projects, like a freeway for them all to share. But now Google is going its own way, in a first-of-its-kind project connecting the United States to Chile, home to the company’s largest data center in Latin America. “People think that data is in the cloud, but it’s not,” said Jayne Sto.
Years after the scandal broke in Silicon Valley, the story has gained new life as founder Elizabeth Holmes awaits trial on fraud charges. When Theranos launched in 2003, 19-year-old Holmes began a meteoric rise to the heights of tech fame. The concept of Theranos was nothing short of world-changing: According to Holmes, her company's technology needed just a pinprick of blood to run a gamut of tests, ending the medical industry's expensive and slow lab tests.
Facebook will overhaul its advertising systems to prevent discrimination in housing, credit and employment ads as part of a legal settlement. For the social network, that’s one major legal problem down, several to go, including government investigations in the U.S. and Europe over its data and privacy practices. The changes to Facebook’s advertising methods — which generate most of the company’s enormous profits — are unprecedented.
