Test and trace with Apple and Google

After the shutdown, the testing and tracing. “Trace, test and treat is the mantra … no lockdowns, no roadblocks and no restriction on movement” in South Korea. “To suppress and control the epidemic, countries must isolate, test, treat and trace,” say WHO. But what does “tracing” look like exactly? In Singapore, they use a “TraceTogether” app, which uses Bluetooth to track nearby phones (without location tracking), keeps local logs of those contacts, and only uploads them to the Ministry of Healt...

The coronavirus crisis is putting Amazon's cloud to the test like never before. Here's how it keeps its massive data centers running smoothly, helping apps like Netflix and Zoom stay reliable. (AMZN)

As coronavirus spreads around the world, more people are being required to stay home, and they often rely on apps that run on Amazon Web Services, like Zoom, Slack, WebEx, Netflix, and Hulu. AWS's network of data centers around the work are designed to handle peak demands, and they're routinely tested to make sure applications can stay running, even if some data centers go down.

The batteries in Apple's $250 AirPods Pro will eventually die — these are your 2 best options to avoid paying for a new pair every few years

The batteries in the AirPods Pro will wear out and die over time, just like regular AirPods or any battery-powered gadget, including iPhones.

I played a long-distance version of Settlers of Catan, the wildly popular and complex board game, with 3 of my friends. Here's how you can do it from your own home.

To practice safe social distancing, my friends and I are staying far apart from each other. That means we won't be able to play Settlers of Catan, the popular board game, together anytime soon. So we, like many millennials, turned to the Internet for answers, and played an online version called Catan Universe. We used a Zoom chat to see each other while playing, and while our first game was a little rocky, it eventually turned into a delightful Catan game. Visit Business Insider's homepage for...

Please Don't Use Your iPhone to Self-Diagnose COVID-19

How to Deal With Anxiety at Work

The American Psychological Association (APA) defines anxiety as “an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

How to find a business idea (from no idea to 6-figure business)

Sometimes the things that are holding us back are just in our minds. How many of us have looked at a pile of papers in our living room for weeks, building up how long it would take to clean… …and then when we finally tackled it, it took 5 minutes? I know the feeling. Sigh. (I love creating piles of paper.) A little while ago, I sent out a survey to hundreds of thousands of readers. I asked if they wanted to start their own businesses. Can you guess how many said yes? 90%! Nearly everyone. Whe...

Why is Blue Apron’s stock skyrocketing?

Back in 2017, a formerly hot, formerly profitable company called Blue Apron went public. It didn’t go well. Today as the global stock market continues to fall, shares in the former venture darling are soaring, up more than 140% in midday trading. Before its IPO, the company had to reduce its price range from $15 to $17 per share to $10 to $11 per share. That pricing change limited the company’s worth, and reduced the capital it raised in its debut. The meal kit delivery company finally priced at...
