I went to the biggest tech show in the world after not going for the past 7 years — and I was surprised by how little had changed

I went to CES, the biggest tech show in the world, for the first time since 2012. To be honest, not much has changed since the last time I went seven years ago. LAS VEGAS — Thousands of people flock to Nevada in the first weeks of January for the biggest annual tech show in the world — and this year, I was one of them. I hadn't been back to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) — or Las Vegas, for that matter — since 2012, which was the last time I had been sent on assignment to cover the tech ...

I rode in a self-driving car for the first time, and it was operated by the Google of Russia — here's what it was like

I rode in a self-driving car for the first time at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The car was operated by Yandex, the Google of Russia.

Like Google (via a sp...

All of the major tech companies are going their separate ways, making things more difficult for regulators

Investors fell in love with a basket of stocks they called FAANG (for Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google) and rode those investments up a tall curve for years. Policymakers and regulators found it convenient to paint a single big target on "the big tech platforms" as the spate of privacy- and election-related controversies since 2016 raised calls for government action. But the closer the government looks at the companies' problems, the harder it gets to settle on any one-size-fits-al...

First 1 terabyte SD card hits stores

Quantity has a quality of its own. Lexar is the first to get 1TB SD cards to market. As ever, there’s a price premium associated with this breakthrough in capacity; you’ll pay more for a single 1TB card than you would for two 512GB cards. Lexar has set the price at $499.99 for this model, although B&H has it available to order at $399.99 — that’s still quite a hike considering the same retailer has various 512GB cards for under $150. The first 1TB hard drive you could buy was back in 2007. Acc...
