Investing across the U.S. in 2019

One year ago this week, I was in Montgomery County, Tennessee to break ground for a new data center in Clarksville.

And I’m proud to say that our U.S. footprint is growing rapidly: In the last year, we’ve hired more than 10,000 people in the U.S. and made over $9 billi...

Robin’s robotic mowers now have a patented doggie door just for them

Back in 2016 we had Robin up on stage demonstrating the possibility of a robotic mower as a service rather than just something you buy. They’re still going strong, and just introduced and patented what seems in retrospect a pretty obvious idea: an automatic door for the mower to go through fences between front and back yards. It’s pretty common, after all, to have a back yard isolated from the front lawn by a wood or chainlink fence so dogs and kids can roam freely there with only light supervis...

The newest display in the Museum of Government Deceit

If California ever built a Museum of Government Deceit, it could never be big enough to house the entire collection. The exhibits would have to rotate in and out from a warehouse somewhere, probably in Texas, where there’s enough room for it.
