Senior Editor @Engadget, formerly at @TechCrunch. I'm here. I'm glad you're there. Working on something great?

Verizon Wireless will let you dodge those sketchy 'supercookies' — Living a wholly private life on the internet is getting to be impossible, but months of thinkpieces and public outcry finally seem to have done a little good where one company is concerned.

Google's hiring, buying and disappointing Wall Street — We're in the thick of earnings seasons, friends, and Google just pushed out its latest spate of financials for our eager delectation. Here's the skinny: Google reported a total of $18.01 billion in revenue (closer to $14.5 billion if you don't count those pesky traffic acquisition costs), less than what Wall Street analyst types expected it to.

FCC votes to redefine how fast broadband really is — It used to be that a paltry 4Mbps down and 1Mbps was all it took for an internet connection to be considered "broadband," but the Federal Communications Commission has just flipped that definition on its ear.

Tim Cook expects to ship the Apple Watch in April — Of all the mysteries still surrounding the Apple Watch, its long-awaited launch window was easily the most debated. Well, not any more. Apple CEO Tim Cook just confirmed during the company's quarterly earnings call that the company's oft-hyped Watch should ship in April 2015 -- not March like many of us suspected/hoped.

Apple's revenues soar thanks to iPhones and China — Well, it's that time again. Apple has just released its latest batch of quarterly earnings, and wouldn't you know it - the folks in Cupertino once again sold more iPhones than it has in any other quarter. We're talking 74.5 million phones changing hands since October, up just about 50 percent from its last utterly insane holiday quarter.

Snapchat delivers news (and ads) with Discover — It's been a long time in the making, but Snapchat's new Discover feature is ready to go... and so is the app's transformation from a pure messaging service into a full-blown media destination.

Expedia buys Travelocity, but don't expect much to change — How much does it cost to buy one of the biggest brands in online travel? Only about $280 million, as it turns out: That's how much Expedia paid in cash to acquire Travelocity today from its parent company Sabre Corporation (no relation to these the makers of the critically panned Pyramid).

Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 preview with Cortana and Continuum in tow — We spent a decent chunk of our Wednesday getting a load of what Microsoft's added to Windows 10 since the last time we saw it, and now the bravest among you can take (most of) that new stuff for a spin.

Internet activist Barrett Brown sentenced to five years in prison — After already having served 28 months in detention, U.S. District Judge Sam Lindsay has sentenced writer and supposed Anonymous spokesperson Barrett Brown to an additional five years for acting as an accessory after the fact to an unauthorized access to a protected computer.

T-Mobile will ignore bad credit if you're loyal and want a new phone — And the Un-carrier march continues unabated. This time, T-Mobile CEO John Legere address the consumer masses via YouTube to launch a new initiative that aims to help put a smartphone in the hands of anyone who wants one... and can pay their bills.
