    You too can bid on Steve Jobs’ turtleneck and other random junk!

    If you’re a founder who’s feeling hot after getting some new seed funding and want to treat yourself, may I recommend purchasing the entire wardrobe of Silicon Valley’s greatest Versace menswear aficionado and wearing it as you berate employees in your office? Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple, famously posited that good artists copy and great artists steal, so why… Read More

    Salesforce shares face plant despite beating analyst expectations

    Salesforce earnings came out today! They’re not great, either, and it looks like a weak outlook for the company’s third quarter is doing some damage to its shares, which were down as much as 8 percent. For a company that literally defined the phrase “software as a service” — basically, running your business online — and one that’s had a decent year… Read More

    Box beats earnings expectations

    Box reported its second quarter fiscal 2017 earnings after the bell on Wednesday. The company beat estimates, posting an adjusted loss of 14 cents, compared to the 19 cents expected by analysts. They also surpassed revenue predictions, reporting $95.7 million instead of $94.65 million, which is up 30% from the same quarter last year.  Shares ticked up about 5% in initial after-hours trading… Read More

  • Lenovo’s got a snazzy new lightweight convertible laptop

    Lenovo’s got a snazzy new lightweight convertible laptop

    The poor Yoga 910 never really had a chance. Moments after Lenovo announced the laptop, the spotlight was completely absorbed by the strange new Yoga Book. It’s a shame really, because this is a pretty nice piece of hardware — one that surely would have been the talk of the company’s event, had it not gone and showed the aforementioned device and a Hasselblad add-on for the… Read More

    Glint raises $27 million to stop solid employees from bailing

    Redwood City-based Glint has raised $27 million in a Series C round of venture funding for software that helps companies figure out how their teams are experiencing problems, or why and when solid employees may leave, undesirably. Glint replaces the traditional 360-review tools used by corporate HR teams and executives with short, anonymous surveys sent out once in a while to specific groups… Read More

    Bang & Olufsen’s pricey new wireless speakers look like martini shakers

    If nothing else, Bang & Olufsen knows how to make an impression. The Danish audio company announced a pair of new wireless speakers — or rather, one speaker in two different sizes — with conical aluminium designs that, if nothing else, certainly stand out. The BeoSound 1 and 2 (names, interestingly enough, already used for a pair of shiny multi-room speakers about 10 or so… Read More

    CBS’s streaming service debuts a $10 per month ad-free tier

    CBS’s streaming TV service for cord cutters, CBS All Access – and soon to be home to the new “Star Trek” series – is today rolling out the option of a commercial-free subscription for the price of $9.99 per month. The existing subscription is still available at $5.99 per month, and includes the same content lineup. The launch comes at a time when the network… Read More

  • Hands-on with Lenovo’s strangely fascinating new Yoga Book

    Hands-on with Lenovo’s strangely fascinating new Yoga Book

    The Yoga Book is nothing if not compelling – but, then, compelling has never really been an issue for the company. Each year, like clockwork, Lenovo tries to push the boundaries of what a tablet can/should be. While other companies are still dipping their toes in the keyboard case waters, Lenovo just goes and, say, drops a projector on the thing. This year’s Yoga Book might be… Read More

  • Qrates lets you press your hot beats onto vinyl

    Qrates lets you press your hot beats onto vinyl

    Hello, fellow young people! I, like you, love vinyl. It offers richer, more realistic (pet) sounds and it is great for lugging from squat house to squat house and for sharing on a portable record player while you enjoy some fine beverages on the front stoop of your Williamsburg duplex. But how can you press your own music onto vinyl with a minimum of (hot) fuss? A Tokyo-based team has the answer. Read More
