Do 1800s Antitrust Laws Apply in the E-Commerce Age?


Laws usually are established after interpersonal or business activities collide with the real or perceived rights of others. After parties with different positions fight about who’s right and who’s wrong, legislatures create laws to solve the legal issues raised, and courts enforce them or create their own (Miranda rules, for example). Many laws from the past, however, do not make sense when applied to e-commerce. This column addresses antitrust laws that make sense when selling traditional goods, but fall short in the e-commerce environment.

Pulling Google Back to the Right Side of the Privacy Line


I don’t usually agree with the European Union. However, it has demanded that Google help to protect the privacy of citizens rather than exposing everything, and I tend to agree. The latest EU ruling doesn’t solve the whole problem, though. In fact, it raises more questions. Remember a few years ago, in the very early days of Google, when we were having the raging debate about how Google was violating privacy? Well, this week’s EU court decision is all about privacy. We have been losing our privacy bit by bit over the last few decades.

Google’s self-driving car passes 700,000 accident-free miles, can now avoid cyclists, stop at railroad crossings

Google self-driving car at some red lights in Mountain View
Google’s self-driving cars, of which there are usually a dozen on the roads of California and Nevada at any given time, have now logged 700,000 miles of awesome accident-free autonomous driving. To celebrate, Google has released a new video that demonstrates some impressive software improvements that have been made over the last two years: Most notably, its self-driving cars can now track hundreds of objects simultaneously, including pedestrians, an indicating cyclist, a stop sign held by a crossing guard, or traffic cones. You really should watch the video — it’s one of the coolest bits of tech that I’ve seen in a long time.
