Equity Morning: Remote work startup fundings galore, plus a major court decision

Good morning and welcome back to TechCrunch’s Equity Monday, a brief jumpstart for your week.

How to decode a data breach notice

Over the years I’ve seen hundreds, probably thousands, of data breach notifications warning that a company’s data was lost, stolen or left online for anyone to grab. Most of them look largely the same. It’s my job to decode what they actually mean for the victims whose information is put at risk.

That’s because most U.S. states have laws that compe...

2020 is the worst year to buy a new smartphone, because 5G just isn't worth it yet

  Android phones in 2020 are coming with 5G connectivity, which is raising the price of smartphones.  5G is technically already here, but it's only available in certain pockets of certain cities in the US.

Punctuating her words was "the sound of a very authentic, real-sounding rooster," Ms. Frost recalled.
