google’s pixel 2: a phone built for artificial intelligence

What’s most fascinating about Google’s new Pixel 2 phone is what’s to come. The phone sets itself apart with promises to bake in Google’s powerful artificial-intelligence technology for quick and easy access to useful, even essential information. But much of the neat stuff will come later. The phone coming out this week is more of a teaser. To be sure, the Pixel 2 is a solid phone. It’s not as elegantly designed as an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy phone. But it delivers a strong tie-in to Google’s services, including those intended to fetch what you need automatically. VISUAL SEARCH ENGINE The Pixel 2 comes with Google Lens, a way of searching Google just by pointing your camera at a landmark, object or storefront. This can give you quick access to reviews and store…

researchers discover vulnerability affecting wi-fi security

Security researchers have discovered a Wi-Fi network vulnerability that could allow attackers to steal sensitive information or spread malicious software while someone is logged into a computer or mobile device. A report published this week said the breach could only happen if an attacker is within range of the potential victim, but the weakness could affect anyone using a Wi-Fi network, whether at home, the office or at a public coffee shop. The Wi-Fi Alliance, an industry group, says there’s no evidence that the vulnerability discovered by researcher Mathy Vanhoef has been exploited maliciously. It affects WPA2, a protocol used to secure Wi-Fi networks. The group says the problem can be resolved through straightforward software updates. Microsoft says it’s already deployed patches. Google says it’ll do so in the coming weeks.…

big question for us cities: is amazon’s hq2 worth the price?

Dozens of cities are working frantically to land Amazon’s second headquarters, raising a weighty question with no easy answer: Is it worth it? Amazon is promising $5 billion of investment and 50,000 jobs over the next decade and a half. Yet the winning city would have to provide Amazon with generous tax breaks and other incentives that can erode a city’s tax base. Most economists say the answer is a qualified yes — that an Amazon headquarters is a rare case in which a package of at least modest enticements could repay a city over time. That’s particularly true compared with other projects that often receive public financial aid, from sports stadiums to the Olympics to manufacturing plants, which generally return lesser, if any, benefits over the long run. For the right city, winning…

facebook takes on food delivery, challenges uber and others

Several online services already offer food delivery, but that doesn’t mean Facebook won’t jump on board anyway. The social-media giant says ordering food for takeout or delivery is complicated. It promises to help save time by bringing existing food-delivery services into its app and partnering with some restaurants directly. Of course, using Facebook to order food might prompt users to spend more time perusing their news feeds — and seeing ads. U.S. Facebook users can order from local restaurants and big chains. Most people who order food already have accounts set up with individual restaurants and delivery apps, however. Facebook will have to persuade them to start the process inside its app instead of using GrubHub, UberEats, Amazon or niche delivery services like Caviar.…

netflix sinking deeper into debt to fuel subscriber growth

Netflix is sinking deeper into debt in its relentless pursuit of more viewers, leaving the company little margin for error as it tries to build the world’s biggest video subscription service. The big burden that Netflix is shouldering hasn’t been a major concern on Wall Street so far, as CEO Reed Hastings’ strategy has been paying off. The billions of dollars that Netflix has borrowed to pay for exclusive series such as“House of Cards,” “Stranger Things,”and“The Crown”has helped its service more than triple its global audience during the past four years — leaving it with 109 million subscribers worldwide through September. That figure includes 5.3 million subscribers added during the July-September period, according to Netflix’s quarterly earnings report released Monday. The growth exceeded management forecasts and analyst projections. Netflix’s stock rose 1 percent in…

court agrees to take on us-microsoft dispute over emails

The Supreme Court agreed Monday to take on a major dispute over the government’s authority to force American technology companies to hand over emails and other digital information sought in criminal probes but stored outside the U.S. The justices intervened in a case of a federal drug trafficking investigation that sought emails that Microsoft keeps on a server in Ireland. The federal appeals court in New York said that the emails are beyond the reach of a search warrant issued by an American judge. The Trump administration and 33 states told the court that the decision is impeding investigations into terrorism, drug trafficking, fraud and child pornography because other courts are relying on the ruling in preventing U.S. and state authorities from obtaining information kept abroad. The case is among several legal clashes…
