Alexa, how is smart home technology changing the way we live?

We want to see the future, and it wants to hear from us.

How Nuro plans to spend Softbank’s $940 million

Autonomous delivery startup Nuro is bursting with ideas since SoftBank invested nearly $1 billion in February, new filings reveal.

The company has even taken the step of trademarking the name “Fido” for delivery services. “We think there’s something neat about that name,” Nuro founder Dave Ferguson told TechCrunch. “It’s friendly, neigh...

How Oracle inadvertently helped Nvidia spend $6.9 billion to win a deal away from Intel (INTC, ORCL, NVDA)

Chip maker Nvidia announced the largest acquisition in its history on Monday when it said it planned to buy Mellanox for $6.9 billion cash. It's a big win for Nvidia which reportedly jumped into the bidding late and pulled the company away from Intel. But the roots of the deal may have actually happened in 2018 when Oracle sold off its shares in Mellanox. Chip maker Nvidia announced the largest acquisition in its history on Monday with its plan to buy Mellanox for $6.9 billion cash. Mellanox ...

This USB-C To Lightning Cable Gives Your Apple Device Superpowers

iRobot’s robotic lawnmower was 10 years in the making

Meet Terra, the latest product line from iRobot destined to be forever known as the “Roomba for lawns.” There are worse names, of course. After all, with the Roomba line, iRobot was able do what countless startups have tried and failed before and after — introduce a truly mainstream home robot. If the Massachusetts-based hardware company is able to do the same for yard work, it will be a truly impressive feat indeed. Like most of what iRobot does, however, work on the lawn-mowing robot has b...

Could the Future of Skincare Shopping Eliminate the Need For In-Store Beauty Consultants?

If you're invested in skin care - and if you buy skincare products, you know it's often an investment - there's a few shopping options we've all grown accustomed to: purchasing online after reading or watching reviews, deciding to buy after seeing a post (or more likely, #ad) on Instagram, or taking a chance in a store. The latter has been somewhat of an alleged ghost town for consumers; in 2019, we have everything we need at our fingertips. I say "alleged" because many publications like to cove...

FaceID… now for pets too.

Imagine this. You’ve got more than one pet. Probably a family of cats or dogs or both. You keep separate feeding bowls for each, but when you’re not around, there’s that one dastardly pet that dominates all those bowls. One pet that bullies the others and eats their food. That’s a problem, right? It’s not the most glamorous problem for technology and artificial intelligence to solve, but it’s a problem nevertheless.Showcased at CES 2019 (and also a winner of the CES Innovation Award), Mookkie’...

AR startup Meta’s assets sold to a mystery ‘known name’ that will support existing headsets

Augmented reality technology enables us to see things in places where they may not actually exist. And sometimes, that paradigm might also apply to augmented reality startups themselves. Meta, the AR startup that was incubated at Y-Combinator and became the first to ship a set of “end-to-end” AR glasses (including hardware, software, direct tracking optics and SDK) to the market, raising a lot of money and high hopes in the process — only to crash, in recent weeks, into insolvency as it ran both...

Streaming TV service Philo to launch a co-viewing feature for watching with friends

Following last year’s $40 million raise, low-cost streaming service Philo is preparing to further differentiate itself from rivals with the launch of a new feature that will allow viewers to watch shows together in real-time. With co-viewing, the company hopes to make a case for choosing Philo that goes beyond its affordability. Instead, the company hopes subscribers will pick Philo simply because it’s a better way to watch TV. It’s only been 14 months since Philo first introduced its take on...

Lenovo’s ultraportable speaker is as slim and small as your phone

The Lenovo 700 Ultraportable Bluetooth Speaker is quite literally the most portable one ever. Most portable Bluetooth speakers are portable alright, but they aren’t slip-into-your-pocket portable.
