When Tahirah Amatul-Wadud heard about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning upset over U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in New York’s Democratic primary last month, the first-time candidate saw parallels with her own longshot campaign for Congress in western Massachusetts.

We tried Tesla's, Cadillac's, and Mercedes' semi-autonomous driving systems — and the winner is clear

We've tried Tesla Autopilot, Cadillac Super Cruise, and Mercedes Drive Pilot. Each has its own pros and cons. Super Cruise is, in our view, worth the extra cost.

Waymo has been at it for years, Uber rolled out its own system in Pittsburgh in 2016, and more recently General Motors' Cruise division showcased its technology for the media, with plans to commercialize a ride...

Facebook told to give parents access to the private messages of their dead daughter

Germany's high court ruled last week that Facebook data and messages can be inherited much like physical diaries or letters. The landmark ruling comes as a result of a case in which a mother was denied access to her dead daughter's Facebook messages. Facebook said it "respectfully disagrees" with the ruling.
