This decision shores up the good precedent from 2012 and makes clear—if it wasn’t clear already—that violating a corporate computer use policy is not a crime.

Mildly ironic.

Musk should come in and save the day with one of his battery packs.

Yeah, it's a real pissing contest.  Overall, my tech feeds tend to blame both of them about equally. But on the 'retail' side of the news, most are b###hing at Amazon.  Then again, there are 3 times as many users to b###h at Amz.

Remember how Google+ was going to battle Facebook dominance? Day late, dollar short.

Here’s Why Alexa Won CES Before The Show Even Started

Google wants those ads to create the vibe that its Assistant is the go-to choice for consumer electronics companies looking to build a brain into their device.

But the current reality is different than the marketing message. This year, 45.4 million Americans will talk to an AI assistant inside smart speakers, says research firm eMarketer. But only about a quarter of them will be talking to Google’s Assistant, while almost 68% will be talking to Amazon’s Alexa.

>Face recognition! f### that.

Too late, Gimpy, too late.  You Brits should have killed it 20+ years ago when they started scanning football stadiums for hooligans.

> article doesn't mention the rise of ginormous televisions

Excellent point.  Along with that, I've read several articles citing the development of a mini-screen and/or multi-screen viewing 'experience' among viewers -particularly the 18-35 demographic. I've noticed this with Louise, her viewing habits are now primarily mini-multi-screen. She'll be running movie-game-facebook on a 50-inch tv, an ipad, and sometimes even her phone .  A single movie screen session for 90 minutes might seem limited somehow by comparison.
