Technology is going through an awkward adolescent phase right now. The smartphone led innovation era is done, while promising new technologies like AI and IoT are still some years away from becoming scalable practical applications. Automated cars are a few years away. So are smart wearables. While there is no doubt that some of these technologies will change our lives in ways that we cannot even imagine right now, tech companies need to find the will (and the funds) to keep investing in the future. Google is a good case in point.

The Fears That Are Churning American Politics
This has to be the most exciting time for watchers of American politics, and it also has to be the more fearful time. But this is not about politics; it is about the underlying society, of which politics is only a reflection. The America of the early 1980s was predominantly White. Census figures show that Whites were over 83% of the population then; today, they are closer to 70%. But here is the most telling statistic: there are now more non-White children under five years of age than White children.
