  • Buzzfeed will cut its staff by 15% in major round of layoffs


    It’s a dark day to work in media. On the heels of news that TechCrunch parent company Verizon Media Group (formerly Oath) would lay off roughly 800 workers, BuzzFeed has announced its own substantial staffing cuts. And though they were anticipated, Gannett also made substantial cuts to newsrooms around the US on Wednesday. In a memo […]
  • AWS launches WorkLink to make accessing mobile intranet sites and web apps easier


    If your company uses a VPN and/or a mobile device management service to give you access to its intranet and internal web apps, then you know how annoying those are.

  • A former Bessemer Venture Partners principal just closed his own $30 million fund, and here’s how


    Sunil Nagaraj, who’d studied computer science as an undergrad at UNC Chapel Hill, landed two pretty nice gigs after deciding to pursue an MBA at Harvard Business School. First, he founded a venture-backed company called Triangulate — though he recognized when it was time to shut it down two years later. He then wound up […]

  • Autonomous subs spend a year cruising under Antarctic ice


    The freezing waters underneath Antarctic ice shelves and the underside of the ice itself are of great interest to scientists... but who wants to go down there? Leave it to the robots. They won't complain! And indeed, a pair of autonomous subs have been nosing around the ice for a full year now, producing data unlike any other expedition ever has.
  • Sequoia goes after early-stage with an accelerator program in India and Southeast Asia


    Sequoia India is going deep into early-stage investing after it announced an accelerator program, Surge, which is focused on fledging startups in India and Southeast Asia, the two regions that it covers.

  • Microsoft Edge on mobile now includes a built-in fake news detector


    In 2019, we still don’t really know what to do about fake news. With nothing to disincentivize viral hyperpartisan headlines and other exercises in confirmation bias, online misinformation seems to run as rampant as ever. It’s a tricky problem, particularly because it’s one that requires the readers most drawn to too outrageous to be true […]
  • Hola Code tackles the real migration crisis


    After spending eight months in an immigration facility in the United States, Abimael Hernandez made the tough decision to return to Mexico.
  • Oracle says racial discrimination lawsuit is ‘meritless’


    Oracle says the racial discrimination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is “meritless.” This comes after Oracle declined yesterday to comment on the OFCCP’s filing that alleges Oracle withheld $400 million in wages from underrepresented employees. “This meritless lawsuit is based on false allegations and a seriously flawed […]
  • Verizon Media Group is laying off 7 percent of its workforce


    The Verizon division formerly known as Oath is laying off 7 percent of its workforce, which amounts to roughly 800 employees. Oath was created after Verizon acquired AOL, followed by Yahoo, bringing them together two years ago as a combined digital media entity with a new name. However, it seems that the organization hasn’t performed […]
  • Aibo learns to be a better watchdog


    I wanted to love the new Aibo. Really, I did. But once I actually spent some time with it, it turned out that it was a $3,000 dog with only a handful of tricks. It seems the days of buying true robot dog companionship are still a long ways away. A few months after bringing […]
  • Facebook may proactively close Pages and Groups before they’re in violation of policy


    Facebook today announced changes to the way it handles the removal of content from Facebook Pages that’s in violation of the social network’s Community Standards, as well as when the Page has posted items that are rated false by a third-party fact-checking service. It says it will also make it harder for those whose Pages […]
  • YC-backed Our World in Data wants you to know what’s changing about the planet


    News is exhausting. Mexican murders are sky-high. Ebola is ravaging the eastern Congo. China is erasing an entire culture of Islam from its Western hinterlands. That news — negative and intense though it is — can easily occlude the many positive, longer term stories that are fundamental drivers of the world. Africa is reaching new […]
  • A new ABC documentary and podcast about Theranos features never-before-aired depositions


    The rise and fall of Theranos, the blood-testing company whose technology never worked despite its promises otherwise, has already been covered extensively. Most notably, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who broke open the story of Theranos’s secrets and lies, John Carreyrou, went on to author a best-selling book about the saga in “Bad Blood.” Still, […]
  • Sherpa, a Spanish voice assistant, expands Series A to $15M as it passes 5M users


    When we think of the AI platforms that are shaping how we use voice to interact with phones, home devices and other services, we tend to think of Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Google and Microsoft’s Cortana. But there are other players that may prove to have a compelling value proposition of their own. Sherpa.ai, a […]

  • Millions of bank loan and mortgage documents have leaked online


    A trove of more than 24 million financial and banking documents, representing tens of thousands of loans and mortgages from some of the biggest banks in the U.S., has been found online after a server security lapse. The server, running an Elasticsearch database, had more than a decade’s worth of data, containing loan and mortgage […]
  • Amazon is piloting its own delivery robot


    It was, of course, just a matter of time before Amazon deployed delivery robots. The company has had a robotics wing for a number of years now, though much of its public-facing side has been focused on warehouse logistics. Today, however, it took the wraps off Scout. The six-wheeled robot looks a fair bit like […]
  • Idera acquires Travis CI


    Travis CI, the popular Berlin-based open-source continuous integration service, has been acquired by Idera, a company that offers a number of SQL database management and administration tools for both on-premises and cloud applications.

    Last year, a startup called Suppose TV entered the market to help consumers find the best deal on TV services.
