Edtech’s newest unicorn, ApplyBoard, lands $1.4B valuation with fresh funding

Brothers Martin, Meti and Massi Basiri all left Iran to study abroad in Canada. After struggling with every aspect from the visa process to grade conversions, the brothers saw an opportunity to make the transition to study internationally more seamless. So, they started Applyboard in 2015 at University of Waterloo’s Velocity Garage. ApplyBoard has two main parts of its business.

California jobless claims top 4 million with funds running dry

Unemployment claims in California have jumped past the 4 million mark in seven weeks, a grim coronavirus-linked surge that has left the state government fund set up to finance the payment of jobless benefits “very close” to depletion, Gov. Gavin Newsom disclosed Monday. The state’s Employment Development Department since March 15 has processed about 4.1 million claims for unemployment insurance, according to an estimate from the governor. Yet at the same time, unemployed workers continue to comp...

A white-hat hacker discovered that Tesla isn't wiping data when it replaces old hardware in customers' vehicles, InsideEVs reported Sunday. After purchasing the used hardware on eBay, the hacker was able to access previous owners' physical and email addresses, phone contacts and call history, and even Netflix session "cookies," according to InsideEVs. Some units had been smashed, suggesting Tesla technicians had unsuccessfully attempted to clear the data by physically damaging them, InsideEV r...

Apple's T2 Security Chip Has Created a Nightmare for MacBook Refurbishers

As predicted, the proprietary locking system Apple rolled out with its 2018 MacBook Pros is hurting independent repair stores, refurbishers, and electronics recyclers. A combination of secure software locks, diagnostic requirements, and Apple's new T2 security chip are making it hard to breathe new life into old MacBook Pros that have been recycled but could be easily repaired and used for years were it not for these locks. From a report: It's a problem that highlights Apple's combative attitude...

Apple's new MacBook Pro fixes its biggest drawback — but it falls behind Windows rivals in one important way (AAPL)

The biggest update to come with Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro is its Magic Keyboard, which replaces the controversial butterfly keyboard that's been prone to issues in recent years. But the base model of the new laptop comes with the same Intel 8th-generation processors as its predecessor, while several Windows competitors run on 10th-generation processors. That means if you want to get the increased performance that comes with Intel's newer processors, you'll have to opt for the pricier $1,...

WeWork is rolling out more job cuts as the coronavirus deals the coworking giant its latest setback. Here's the latest on what's going on inside the company.

WeWork pulled its IPO in 2019 after mulling a massive valuation cut to drum up investor interest, and cofounder Adam Neumann was ousted as CEO and chairman.

I enjoyed the characters of this quest, and buy RuneScape gold might instantly recall a few of the figures the minute I read the patchnote even though its a decade because I did the quest.

Amazon VP who called the company 'chicken----' for firing warehouse workers says there was no particular agenda behind his post: 'I'm a blogger' (AMZN)

SEC loosens crowdfunding regs so small businesses can raise alternative financing in pandemic

Just like American workers are turning to crowdfunding to pay for the medical procedures that can keep them alive, the Securities and Exchange Commission is telling small businesses that everyday citizens may provide them with the lifeline that the U.S. government won’t. After two multi-billion dollar stimulus packages which have largely failed to reach the small businesses they were ostensibly intended to support, the SEC said that it will lift restrictions related to reporting requirements and...

Google's new $180 Pixel Buds sound better than Apple's AirPods, but they're ultimately too expensive for what you get

  Google's new Pixel Buds get the basics right for earbuds: they sound good, they look good, they're comfortable, and they're compact.  Sadly, however, there's no noise cancellation feature, background static is noticeable when listening to quiet songs, and I continue to find Google Assistant to be an awful mess in earbuds. For $180, you'd be overspending on the Pixel Buds. That's because there are lots of wireless earbuds that sound similar with lower price tags and less issues to deal with. ...

Moxie is a technically impressive childhood robot from iRobot’s former CTO

To this day, the Roomba remains the one successful mainstream home robotic. It was a feat iRobot achieved after a decade or so of throwing concepts against the wall, ultimately achieving success through a combination of outward-facing simplicity and under-the-hood sophistication. That other robots haven’t achieved those heights isn’t for lack of trying. The field has been littered with promising, high-profile failures. Notable recent additions to the dust bin of social home robotics history ...
