The remarkable lawsuit pitting Oracle against its own board members now suggests Larry Ellison should give back $1.6 billion for the 2016 NetSuite acquisition

An unprecedented lawsuit is still in the works, in which a shareholder was authorized by Oracle's board to sue its Oracle's board members, including Larry Ellison. A new version of the complaint filed this week includes additional information based on internal documents and emails.

Wondering about getting a job at SpaceX? Elon Musk says innovation is the main criterion

In a wide ranging discussion at the Air Warfare Symposium held by the U.S. Air Force, Elon Musk touched on some old and new themes, but one highlight of the discussion was the small window into hiring and firing practices at SpaceX — arguably one of the world’s most demanding engineering companies.  The company prides itself on innovation and for its chief executive officer, that apparently extends to the interview process itself. “[When we] i nterview people we ask for some evidence of except...

The CEO of the Amazon-backed self-driving car startup Aurora explains why testing its tech on a computer is better than testing it in the real world

Aurora is developing software and hardware for autonomous vehicles with the goal of acting as a supplier to other companies, instead of making its own self-driving cars or ride-hailing service. Chris Urmson, the company's CEO, said using simulations and other virtual methods to test the company's tech is more useful than running tests on public roads. If you want to test a specific situation, you can repeat it more quickly in a computer than in the real world, Urmson said. But Aurora still doe...

Tesla Autopilot crash driver died "playing video game"

Tesla calls it Autopilot, but it didn't help Walter Huang's Model X avoid the crash that killed him.

But it also wrote that more crashes are "foreseeable" if Tesla doesn't make changes to its driver-assist technology's design. While approaching a paved gore area dividing the main travel lanes of U...
