    by Jon Russell on 23rd August 2017 at 9:50 am

  • Here is Uber’s first pitch deck
    by John Mannes on 23rd August 2017 at 8:24 am

     On the ninth anniversary of the founding of Uber, its co-founder Garrett Camp shared the company’s initial pitch deck via a personal Medium post. The deck, and the short post, comes off quite sentimental because of how much has happened to the company since it was created. But company growth and drama aside, there’s a lot to be learned from Uber’s 25 slide deck. Enjoy the… Read Mor […]

  • This European country may hold an ICO and issue its own cryptocurrency
    by Fitz Tepper on 23rd August 2017 at 3:54 am

     We’ve officially hit peak ICO. Estonia, a small country in Northern Europe, just floated the idea of potentially raising money by issuing a token called “estcoins“. So why Estonia? The country is pretty forward thinking when it comes to technology – they are first nation to offer an e-Residency program.  The program is almost like a digital citizenship, and lets… Read Mor […]

    by Connie Loizos on 23rd August 2017 at 3:46 am

  • New wearable tracker can transmit vital signs from a soft, tiny package
    by John Biggs on 23rd August 2017 at 3:46 am

     Body sensors have long been bulky, hard to wear, and obtrusive. Now they can be as thin as a Band-Aid and about as big as a coin. The new sensors, created by Kyung-In Jang, professor of robotics engineering at South Korea’s Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology, and John A. Rogers, Northwestern University, consists of a silicone case that contains “50 components… Read Mor […]

  • Pepper the robot can perform funerary rites, but it shouldn’t
    by Devin Coldewey on 23rd August 2017 at 12:23 am

     It’s not really clear just what “humanoid” robots are actually for. I’ve seen them do all kinds of things, but almost none of them well; at our recent Robotics event in Boston, several leading experts in the field questioned their necessity. But we grew up with Data and Robby and Cylons, and so now we have Pepper. Performing funeral rites for cash-strapped people in Japan. Read Mor […]

    by Taylor Hatmaker on 22nd August 2017 at 11:38 pm

     The Department of Justice has dropped its request for the IP addresses of visitors to an anti-Trump inauguration protest website. The news is a win for DreamHost, which went public with the situation last week, riling privacy advocates who decried the DOJ request for IP addresses that had visited disruptj20.org as dangerously broad.

  • Blue Apron implements a partial hiring freeze and lays off 14 recruiters
    by Megan Rose Dickey on 22nd August 2017 at 8:31 pm

     Blue Apron is chugging along on its post-IPO bumpy road: the meal-kit company’s VP of HR and talent has left; Blue Apron has put into effect a hiring freeze on some salaried positions, but is still hiring for certain corporate roles and hourly fulfillment center positions; and the company let go 14 members of its recruiting team.

  • This 23-year-old just closed her second fund — which is focused on aging — with $22 million
    by Connie Loizos on 22nd August 2017 at 8:25 pm

     Laura Deming is not your typical venture capitalist. Then again, she isn’t typical in many ways. For starters, the 23-year-old, New Zealand native was home schooled, developing along the way a love of math and physics and, perhaps most interestingly, the biology of aging. We caught up with Deming to learn more about her path — and which technologies she’s betting on to extend… Read Mor […]

     Salesforce reported its second-quarter earnings today, saying it brought in $2.56 billion in revenue on earnings of 33 cents per share. This is a beat on both fronts, but the stock dipped slightly in extended trading after seeing a rather stunning run-up over the course of the year. Read Mor […]

  • Users dump AccuWeather iPhone app after learning it sends location data to a third party
    by Taylor Hatmaker on 22nd August 2017 at 8:19 pm

     AccuWeather’s iOS app may be up to something fishy. Security researcher Will Strafach published a warning about the popular weather app’s behavior on Medium and users appear to be paying attention. I would find this less concerning if the AccuWeather's permission dialog mentioned tracking your home/work location, where you travel, etc. — Will Strafach (@chronic) August… Read Mor […]
