Blue Apron ships boxes to customers filled with all the raw ingredients needed to make home-cooked meals.

After Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, released a draft of the Senate health-care bill, on Thursday morning, the media finally began focussing on the essence of what Republicans are proposing: an enormous redistribution of wealth into the pockets of the already-wealthy. The bill would modify the health-insurance subsidies introduced under the Affordable Care Act and dramatically cut Medicaid, all to deliver a big tax cut to the nation’s richest households. But there’s another aspect of the legislation that has received less attention, and that’s the way it staggers its various provisions, and claims billions of dollars in savings that are far from guaranteed.

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

Amazon’s proposed $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods Market caught stock market investors off guard. Their initial reaction — bidding up share prices of the two companies and selling off those of grocery chains — suggests a bleak future for an industry being reshaped by on-demand delivery. Shares of Walmart were down 4.4 percent in mid-day trading after falling as much as 7 percent. Walmart, which has been trying to compete against Amazon by leveraging its retail stores as mini-distribution centers for deliveries of grocery and other goods, was holding up pretty well compared to its peers, however. ...

AI is constantly touted as the next big thing. But how many of us are aware that AI is already here? While the jury is still out on whether it will be a benevolent force or an existential threat to humankind, AI is active in many facets of our daily lives and will play a larger role in the years to come. AI is here whether we like it or not. Should you care? Let’s take a look at how companies are using AI today, and I’ll let you decide. Why do we need AI? AI is also extremely useful as a way to better analyze and parse big data. While data scientists can pool sources and decide what they want to look for, the actual grunt work is often done by a proprietary AI that sorts through exabytes of data. Credit card ... Read More

When Hollywood inevitably makes a biopic about Travis Kalanick, the embattled CEO of Uber—the most valuable private company in the world—screenwriters will have a hard time toning down reality to make it sound halfway believable. In the past few months alone, details have emerged about stolen trade secrets from Google regarding self-driving cars, sneaky tracking techniques for evading authorities, and, most alarmingly, allegations of ignored sexual harassment complaints and t...

Automobile manufacturers shipped 88 million cars in 2016. Tesla shipped 76,000. Yet Wall Street values Tesla higher than any other U.S. car manufacturer. What explains this more than 1,000 to 1 discrepancy in valuation? The future. Too many people compare Tesla to what already exists, and that’s a mistake. Tesla is not another car company.

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

After months of quietly climbing higher and higher, tech stocks began to tumble Friday, with the Nasdaq Composite falling as much as 2.8 percent during mid-day trading. More disconcertingly, the selloff hit hardest some of the largest-cap and best-known names in tech. Microsoft fell as much as 4.6 percent, while Alphabet and Facebook lost as much as 5 percent. Amazon fell as much as 5.3 percent, Apple 5.6 percent, and Netflix 6.5 percent. Such declines aren’t unheard of in the history of technology stocks, which have a long record of volatile performances because of their focus on growth and the cyclical nature of the industry. But the selloff was notable not only for its sudden onset but also because most of these stock... Read More

Evening rush-hour cancellations and delays on New York’s Long Island Rail Road have reached their highest level in 10 years, according to transit data analyzed by the Wall Street Journal. Problems at Amtrak-managed Penn Station have caused many of this year’s problems, but the LIRR’s performance also has become increasingly unreliable over the past four years, the Journal (http://on.wsj.com/2rQbMjZ ) found. From 2008 through 2012, the LIRR’s systemwide on-time evening rush-hour performance averaged 93 percent during the first four months of those years. Over the last five years, it dropped to 87 percent. LIRR President Pat Nowakowski tied the issue to rid... Read More

Trump’s blocking people on Twitter, and some think it’s a First Amendment issue

Twitter users block others on the service all the time, in some cases because they are abusive and sometimes just because they’re irritating. But is it different if the user doing the blocking happens to be the president of the United States? The Knight First Amendment Institute says it is different, or at least that it should be. The Institute, a non-profit group associated with Columbia University, has sent a letter to the White House arguing that Trump is breaching the First Amendment rights of those he blocks. It might seem laughable at first — and... Read More
