Explosive blog post details ‘abhorrent’ sexism at Uber

DeleteUber Twitter trends

In a blog post published Sunday, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler Riggetti details her experiences working for the company. Sadly, given she's a female engineer working at a thrusting, big-name Silicon Valley startup, the experiences are exactly what you'd expect.

This futuristic ATM means you’ll never have to go into a bank again

NCR's new ATM

Fifty years ago, the ATM was one of the first robots to start down the long path of stealing jobs. Even the name -- Automated Teller Machine -- shows that it was explicitly designed to put bank tellers out of a job.

ATMs have become far more sophisticated since their introduction, but their main function of dispensing cash hasn't really changed. So, for ATMs themselves to remain relevant as banks increasingly go online, there needs to be change.

Samsung boss Lee arrested in South Korean corruption scandal

Samsung Boss Jay Y. Lee Arrested

Samsung chief Jay Y. Lee spent a night in jail waiting for a court to decide whether he should be arrested, as requested by a special prosecutor investigating the massive corruption scandal in South Korea that involves the country’s president. Unlike a few weeks ago, when Lee walked free after a similar night behind bars, he was arrested on Friday.

Apple CFO pours cold water on Trump’s grand iPhone plans

Apple Trump iPhone

Apple and its sad, low-energy, economically sensible overseas manufacturing have been a target of Trump since day one. Trump seems keen on bullying Tim Cook to open a factory in the USA without actually detailing specifics, and while Apple has stayed out of the fray so far, new comments from Apple CFO Luca Maestri indicate that Apple won't be shutting up shop in China any time soon.

How Apple’s arrogance impacts its ability to acquire new companies

Apple Acquisitions

A new report from Bloomberg sheds some interesting light on the hazy underpinnings of Apple's acquisition strategy. Famously, Apple's tends to shy away from large corporate acquisitions, with the company's $3 billion purchase of Beats a few years ago standing as a lone exception. That notwithstanding, the report relays that Apple's own arrogance and "take it or leave it" attitude might be precluding it from successfully inking similar large-scale acquisitions.

Apple poaches Amazon’s Fire TV boss to lead Apple TV business

Apple Hires Amazon Fire TV Boss

The word "best" is never really an absolute in consumer tech since opinions, needs and wants vary so dramatically. When that word is tossed around to describe streaming media devices, it seems to be used to describe Amazon's Fire TV devices more often than not. Streaming entertainment solutions like the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick are wildly popular options thanks largely to their ease of use, low cost and a wide range of functionality. In fact, they're so popular that Amazon can't even keep them in stock right now — new orders of either model won't ship until February 23rd. If you want a Fire TV today, your only option is the Amazon Fire TV Gaming Edition, which bumps up the price from $79.99 to $129.99 and comes with a video game controller. Even at that elevated price point, however, it's still more affordable than the entry-level Apple TV.

Apple TV is a good product that is highly regarded among owners, but the product has hardly lived up to the hype Apple tried to create during the most recent generation's unveiling. To that end, Apple has hired the former head of Amazon's Fire TV business to help take its own home entertainment product to the next level.

Trump’s border tax would massively help Tesla

Trump border tax

In recent weeks, Donald Trump has been kicking around the idea of an import tax on Mexican goods. The specifics are nowhere to be found -- probably because they don't exist -- but that hasn't stopped research shop Baum and Associates from working out what the impact would be on the nation's automakers.

Across the board, the report doesn't paint a pretty picture. The price of cars would go up for nearly every car manufacturer, with some companies seeing a per-vehicle increase of over $10,000. But the one car company that would be sitting pretty? Tesla.

How Snapchat and Facebook’s billionaires are changing rules to keep power forever

Snapchat IPO vs Facebook

As part of the papers filed for its IPO yesterday, Snpachat's parent company Snap revealed the ownership and power structure that the company will use moving forwards. Snap CEO Evan Spiegel and CTO Robert Murphy will have the majority of the company's voting shares, while regular investors will have no voting rights at all.

The move is described as "highly unusual," which it is for a regular company. But for a Silicon Valley behemoth run by evangelical founders who want to change the world, it's becoming increasingly common.

Kraft Heinz is giving its 42,000 employees a day off instead of buying a Super Bowl ad

kraft heinz super bowl

Kraft Heinz — the company made up of both the Kraft and Heinz food brands — could certainly afford to buy a pricey ad for this year's Super Bowl, but they're not going to buy one. Instead, the company is going to spend that money in a slightly different way and give its entire US workforce the following Monday off. It's one of those rare examples of a genuinely cool publicity stunt, but Kraft Heinz has another trick up its sleeve, and it involves you.
