Facebook, the social network used by, oh, a few billion people, is making a change to its iconic news feed. Instead of being dominated by a mix of links from friends and news stories from pages you like, you’ll be seeing a lot more posts from your family and friends in an effort to strengthen personal connections with…
Defective airbags from Takata have been linked to 18 deaths and hundreds of injuries, but more than 10 million vehicles still remain unrepaired at this point, according to a report issued Friday. It’s an unfortunate situation—one that Honda’s now trying to reconcile by tracking down affected owners through Facebook.
In real life, in the natural course of conversation, it is not uncommon to talk about a person you may know. You meet someone and say, “I’m from Sarasota,” and they say, “Oh, I have a grandparent in Sarasota,” and they tell you where they live and their name, and you may or may not recognize them.
Remember that non-existent rumor a couple years back about Facebook—that, like other oversized tech behemoths of Silicon Valley, it could be making a self-driving car? It wasn’t true then, and it’s not true now. That’s according to the company’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg.
It’s not too late to get eclipse glasses, but don’t expect to find any in stores. We’ve seen listings on local sale websites like Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist, though, so you could still snatch up a pair if you act fast.
Mark Zuckerberg is considerably better at New Year’s resolutions than you are—last year, he built his own home AI, voiced by Morgan Freeman, and ran all over the world. This year, Zuck’s New Year’s resolution is more noble, more selfless. He wants to get offline and immerse himself in the nitty-gritty land of IRL. The…
If you go look at your Facebook right now, there’s a high likelihood that the social network is telling everyone you are dead. It says everyone is dead. Everyone is dead, according to Facebook. Even Zuck.
I’ve never found the Lotus Evora to be that compelling, especially compared to something like a Porsche Cayman. Apparently dumping some weight and giving it 400 horsepower fixes any problems it may have had. This is the new Lotus Evora 400, and we’re testing it live right now.
Italy has produced some of the most incredible dream cars the world has ever seen. Ferrari. Lamborghini. Maserati. Those are not what we are driving. Instead, our man Jason Torchinsky is at the Lane Museum for the Macchine Italiane Rally, and he’s driving a Casalani Sulky.
Few cars at any price are as hotly anticipated as the new Ford Focus RS, the new 350 horsepower all-wheel drive God Hatch. Now that it’s on sale in Europe, our tame racing driver Robb Holland has one and wants to show us what it can do on one of the oldest and most dangerous race courses in the world.
Our man Jason Torchinsky has already raged at the failures of the 2016 Ford Mustang GT’s new tattle-tale indicator lights, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the car is bad. Not when it’s a bright red convertible with a 5.0-liter V8 under the hood! Jason’s here to tell you all about the car.
Nobody likes jackasses who don’t use their turn signals, who Tweet or text or twerk or whatever on their phones while driving, or are rude, road-raging reprobates. We get it. That all sucks. Does that mean it’s okay to publish the identities of these drivers online? I don’t know, but these people seem to feel it’s a…
The War On Terror™ continues apace, with dedicated agencies hunting all threats both foreign and domestic. The Wall Street Journal has a new look inside one unlikely group: Facebook.
It looks Facebook wants to take the event function a step further and help people actually get to those events. Is the social media giant getting into the ridesharing game? Based on these patent filings, maybe so.
A seven-year-old racer named Emma went home from school in tears after her teacher said that girls don’t race cars. She was so crushed by those words that the track where she races has asked for words of encouragement from other female racers. So far, the response has been overwhelming.
The buses that shuttle San Francisco tech workers to and from their Silicon Valley jobs each day have been blamed for displacing longtime residents. In a heartbreaking twist, the drivers of those buses are paid so little that they, too, have been priced out of San Francisco–and some of them must live in their cars.
UPS opened up a can of worms when they decided to do a photo mosaic for their logo. The idea was to use fans' Facebook photos as the background. Of course, someone had Dick Butt (which is a doodle of exactly what it sounds like) as their photo. Now Dick Butt will take a glorious ride aboard the Ferrari SF15-T. …
