Both supporters and opponents of abortion want to know whether their insurance provider covers abortion. But in some states, consumers are still having a tough time figuring that out.
Back in the day — say, up until about a decade or so ago — the big news on April 15 was always about last-minute filers lining up at post offices as the clock ticked down. Now? It's a different story.
The safety message is described as a "sort of cross between a Ricky Martin video, mixed with Devo's 'Whip It' and a heaping spoonful of Robert Palmer's 'Simply Irresistible.' "
People who took a stand against a proposed tax-filing change were part of a grass-roots campaign orchestrated to help Intuit, according to nonprofit newsroom ProPublica.
The bird, which newspapers say stands 6 feet, can run 40 mph and is "capable of disemboweling a human," escaped last month from a farm in Hertfordshire after apparently being spooked by a local hunt.
Apple's Bluetooth-based customer tracking system, iBeacon, just got better, if you ask marketers. But privacy researchers aren't so sure.
Millions of people in developing countries still don’t have access to the Internet. Google would like to change that, which is why it’s acquired Titan Aerospace, manufacturer of solar-powered drones.
The world's most famous search engine plans to send the drones up to hover high in the atmosphere, beaming the internet down to earth. More people could 'google', but will these people like having drones peering down at them?
We asked Patrick Egan, editor of the drone-focused sUAS News website, about privacy concerns:
“I don’t think in this case it’s going to be a privacy issue. They’re going to fly at really high altitudes. They probably won’t even have cameras on them.”
Google’s already experimented with aerial hot spots, using balloons, but drones are expected to be more reliable.
“The winds at altitude can be pretty strong. So, the more controllability you have the better,” says Kurt Barnhart, director of the Applied Aviation Research Center at Kansas State University.
Plus, Titan says its drones can stay aloft for years, without refueling.
