Gov. Gavin Newsom’s death penalty moratorium lauded and lambasted

As workers dismantled California’s apple-green execution chamber Wednesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s death penalty moratorium was criticized as a slap in the face to voters and praised as a strike for humanity. Newsom’s executive order, blocking execution for 737 prisoners on death row at San Quentin State Prison, came just as efforts to hasten executions were beginning to pick up steam in the aftermath of a 2016 ballot measure approved by voters. There has not been an execution in the state since 20...

Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Really Wants a Folding iPhone

"Apple has been a leader for quite a long time in a few areas such as touch ID, facial ID, and easy payment with the phone,” Wozniak said in a Bloomberg TV interview.

Not every startup has a cool origin story — and that’s okay

We all know the fantasy brand story. Two friends in a garage dare to dream and create a product that changes the world forever — a legendary scenario popularized the Steves, Jobs and Wozniak, and looked upon as the perfect representation of the startup spirit. But for makers and entrepreneurs, the real backstories common to the crowdfunding and startup worlds are often never that interesting. They’re normally pretty mundane. Even when there’s a legitimate “two ships passing in the night” tale, w...
