Black Friday sales are no longer limited to brick-and-mortar stores. For example, Amazon kicked off more than 50 days of “Black Friday Deals” last week.

You won't have to wait until November to buy Apple's next-gen iPhone 8

For as popular as the iPhone already is, Apple’s iconic smartphone will take things to the next level once the iPhone 8 is released later this year.

Despite Intense Scrutiny, Uber Lays Another Egg


Already under the microscope for claims of sexual harassment and questionable labor practices, Uber said it would ban the use of a controversial technology to block regulatory authorities from monitoring its operations. The company’s “greyballing” technology is designed to hide the standard city app view in specific cases — for example, from former riders blocked for being abusive. However, some drivers have used it to circumvent local regulators, a practice that Uber no longer will allow, according to Chief Security Officer Joe Sullivan.
