Human censorship and legal bloggers

There’s going to come a day when there will be a need to police the speech of legal bloggers. Not across the Internet in entirety, but by a company or organization hosting or syndicating legal blogs. Could be LexBlog. Censorship of legal bloggers has not been a big topic of concern among the legal blogosphere. Sadly, most legal bloggers are afraid to offend anyone, though we have seen a few get bounced off Twitter for a bit, I suspect out of machines doing automatic takedowns.  With lega...

Longtime Apple analyst Gene Munster thinks the iPhone maker will reclaim its crown as the best tech stock in 2019. Here's why (AAPL, FB, AMZN, NFLX, GOOGL)

Next year should be a good one for Apple's stock, said Gene Munster, a managing partner at Loup Ventures. The company's shares should outperform its peers among the most widely watched big tech companies, said Munster, a longtime Apple analyst. The changes the company is making to its financial reporting, and a new upgrade in wireless technology, should help boost its stock, he said. This year had been a tough one for Apple. But things could get a whole lot better for the company in 2019. App...

Now’s the time to bridge the gap between female health and technology

I recently watched a stand-up show in which comedian Michelle Wolf made a cunning observation: “It’s our fault we’re not further along in period technology, because we’re ok that our best solution is a rolled-up piece of cotton.” Whether it really is women’s fault is debatable, but she does make a valid point. You would assume for a problem that affects half of the world’s population every month, we would have come up with something a little more innovative by now. Yet only little progress has b...

A top tech analyst is betting on a rebound, not a recession, and says these stocks are his best bets after the market's correction (AMZN, FB, GOOGL, ATVI, TTWO)

The volatile stock markets likely have investors on edge. Many are worried that a recession is imminent. But Colin Sebastian, an analyst with Baird Equity Research, is optimistic that the recent sell-off in the markets represents just a correction, not a sign of an economic downturn. If so, that could be a good sign for tech stocks; they've tended to post strong gains in rebounds after corrections, according to Sebastian's data. But some stocks have done better than others, and Sebastian has t...

'Two Years Later, I Still Miss the Headphone Port'

An anonymous reader shares a column: I've been trying to figure out why the removal of the headphone port bugs me more than other ports that have been unceremoniously killed off, and I think it's because the headphone port almost always only made me happy. Using the headphone port meant listening to my favorite album, or using a free minute to catch the latest episode of a show, or passing an earbud to a friend to share some new tune. It enabled happy moments and never got in the way. Now ever...

perpetual beta 2018

Setting Goals: Why It’s Important to Do It Now

I still remember the day I decided I wanted to make a living out of public speaking. It was a dream that, at the time, I thought could never be achieved. As a young, 18-year-old college freshman, I had no idea where I needed to go – let alone where to begin. So I did what every good millennial does and conferred with the all-knowing Google where I found tons of resources to help me navigate the industry. The most useful of all those resources was an article I read about the importance of setting...

Battered Apple Poised to Lead FAANGs in 2019, Munster Says

With a few days to go in 2018, Apple is the second-worst performer in the group of large-cap internet and technology stocks.
