When Your Neighbor’s Drone Pays an Unwelcome Visit

nytimes.com — As a columnist who tests a lot of technology, I often write about my own experiences. But what happened last week was downright surreal. It started on Thursday, when I began reporting a column about drones and the altercations they are causing among neighbors.

But over the past year, a new category of junk has started to accumulate there: wearable devices. There's my old Fitbit, a fitness tracker I used for a couple of weeks, forgot to charge and never wore again.

nytimes.com — The Nest Learning Thermostat is dead to me, literally. Last week, my once-beloved "smart" thermostat suffered from a mysterious software bug that drained its battery and sent our home into a chill in the middle of the night.

smh.com.au — Every few decades, a piece of technology comes along that alters political campaigning. It happened in 1924 when Calvin Coolidge showed that he was a natural on the radio, which many historians believe helped him win the presidency. Technology disrupted the presidential election again in 1960, during the nation's first televised debate, when John F.

‘Steve Jobs’ Flops at Box Office, and Silicon Valley Cheers

nytimes.com — The movie " Steve Jobs " had all the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster. It had a starry cast (Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, Michael Fassbender). The screenplay was by the acclaimed writer Aaron Sorkin (who also wrote "The Social Network"). And it received rave reviews ("'Steve Jobs' is a rich and potent document of the times," wrote my colleague A.O.
