Israel’s maturing cybersecurity startup ecosystem

It often feels like half of the new security startups that receive funding are from Israel. As YL Ventures’ Yoav Leitersdorf and Ofer Schreiber wrote last month, investments in Israeli cybersecurity startups increased to $1.4 billion last year, with average seed rounds of $4.7 million, up 30.5% from 2018.

New short story: Forensic Geology

“It’s an autopsy report on our country,” I told my husband when he asked, but I didn’t show him my files.I can’t, because the military classified the project and then closed it down, which is why I’m committing a crime by doing this at home. I can’t, because he already has his own nightmares, and he doesn’t need to see maps pockmarked by hidden mass graves like a nightmarish rhizome, fertile fields turned to dust plains framing the shells of abandoned towns, camps turned into cities, cities tur...

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip hands-on: This is more like it

The buyer beware adage is never more true than among early adopters. It was price, however, that made the Galaxy Fold such a difficult pill to swallow. When it was finally released to the public after numerous delays, the device came swaddled in warnings. It was a long list, and not exactly a vote of confidence for those who just dropped $2,000 on an unproven device. At the same time, the impulse to purchase the device was understandable. After years of teasing flexible displays, Samsung was...
