Drones take off and investor money flies in

cnbc.com — Now that the Federal Aviation Administration has published its proposed rules on drones, expect to start seeing plenty of unmanned miniature planes flying over places like AT&T Park in San Francisco, home of the World Series champions. But not when there's a game taking place, of course.

Where some legends of the dot-com era are now

cnbc.com — The Nasdaq Composite is approaching the 5,000 mark once again, a level the tech-heavy index hasn't reached since March 2000. Now, 15 years later, let's look back at the dot-com bubble legends who helped the index balloon to record highs at the turn of the century.

Docker’s Rise From Sleeper to Open Source King

recode.net — In December 2013, Google announced that its cloud platform was supporting a fledgling open source project called Docker.

The unicornification of Silicon Valley continues

cnbc.com — Take WeWork for example. The provider of co-working space in 13 cities across the globe increased by 233 percent in less than a year, when it raised money in December at an almost $5 billion valuation. Uber, the most highly valued U.S. venture-backed tech company, rose by 167 percent between June and December to $40 billion.

Nasdaq 5,000! Will this time be different?

cnbc.com — Tetra Images | Getty Images At some point in the coming days or weeks, the tech-laden Nasdaq index will almost certainly hit the 5,000 watermark for the first time in 15 years. Sure-big, round stock market numbers are purely symbolic, but this one carries with it quite a bit more baggage.

Microsoft’s Transformation Into an Industry Collaborator

recode.net — There may be no more surprising development in technology over the past year than Microsoft's radical transformation into an industry collaborator. Long surviving on huge license and maintenance fees for its proprietary Windows and Office software, Microsoft historically wanted to sell you the full stack, from the operating system on your desktop to the security, networking and storage in data center servers.

Uniting with rivals? Welcome to the new Microsoft

cnbc.com — In November, Microsoft forged a similar arrangement with Dropbox, letting consumers edit and save files from the storage and collaboration service in Office 365. Microsoft is actually easing the way for individuals and teams to use competitive products. Microsoft is making strides on more than just the consumer side.

Wall Street's ongoing struggle to make sense of the cloud

cnbc.com — Buchachon | iStock | Getty Images Wall Street has become quite familiar by now with cloud computing. The model of delivering services over the Web has gained so much momentum that public market investors, who traditionally parked their tech dollars with Microsoft, IBM, Oracle and Cisco, have dozens of new stocks to choose from if they want growth.

Bill.com raises $50 million for cloud invoicing

cnbc.com — Lacerte says customers can chop 50 to 75 percent off the time it takes them to deal with payments and invoices, and get paid two to three times faster. The software also integrates with accounting products from Xero, NetSuite, Intuit's QuickBooks and Intacct, so data sync up easily.
