Why Self-Driving Cars Are Good for Car Rental Companies
New partnerships with companies that are developing self-driving car technology have also been formed.

A look at how one of the nation’s largest video, high-speed internet, and phone providers came to be shows just how far the communications (i.e., cable, satellite, telecommunications) sector has come.

The Inside Track: Connected Cars
Daniela Rus also believes that the cars of the future will be able to do a lot more than just self-drive; they’ll be able to understand how you’re feeling by listening to your voice, or route you to the nearest store when you run out of milk.

IBM makes life easier for enterprise Mac users
The decades-old conflict between PCs and Apple’s Macs softened a little more this week when IBM unveiled new services that further simplify integration of Macs into cloud-based enterprise environments.

Will GSK And Purdue Be The First Pharmas To Use ResearchKit?
