Google fails publicly, and likes it that way — When Larry Page took to the stage at Google's I/O developer conference in May, 2013, his company ruled the world. The stock was well on its way to $1,000, "moonshot" projects like Google Glass were just making their way to users and, earlier that day, Google unveiled a new Google Maps feature that would let people see - and visually control - the Earth's path in orbit.

10 ways technology is changing now — The tech world only stops to gawk for a few choice events: Apple product launches, Marc Andreessen tweetstorms and Mary Meeker's slide presentations. Meeker, a partner at the influential venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins and arguably the center of the Silicon Valley hype machine, released her 20th annual Internet Trends report on Wednesday.

Apple's innovator moves up. What happens next? — Normally a promotion is something to celebrate. With Apple's design guru Jonathan Ive, however, it's proving to be more bittersweet. Ive, the celebrated designer behind Apple's most successful hardware products and the overhauled operating system for the iPhone and iPad, has been promoted to the newly created role of Chief Design Officer, making him just the third C-level executive at the world's most valuable company.

Silicon Valley prodigy arrested by FBI for alleged fraud — By the time Joshua Newman was a junior at Yale, he was being portrayed in national publications as a "budding venture capitalist" and "Silicon Valley pro." Now 35, Newman is at risk of going to jail.

Flickr's new tags create offensive labels — Flickr has accidentally created an insensitive monster. The popular photo-sharing website, which is owned by Yahoo, rolled out a suite of new options earlier this month, including an automatic tagging feature using the company's "image recognition technology." The goal: to make it easier for people to organize and search for photos.

Gig economy workers don't seem happy — Some call it the sharing economy. Others simply call it a disappointment. Services like Uber, TaskRabbit and Airbnb rocketed to fame (and gained imitators) more than five years ago, fueled by the rise of a more informal "gig economy" and a workforce weakened by the recession of 2008.

Is Elon Musk a good CEO? — By almost any measure, Elon Musk is an impressive chief executive: he runs two groundbreaking companies, works unimaginably long hours, proves himself to be a showman and went to the brink of bankruptcy and back without wavering on his vision. But is Musk actually a good CEO? That's a little more complicated.

Etsy stock crashes 15% after catastrophic first earnings report — Etsy stock is unraveling like a poorly knit neckerchief. In its closely watched first earnings report as a public company, the online marketplace for handcrafted goods created a big disappointment, posting an enormous net loss of $36.6 million for the quarter.

The Apple TV isn't happening, and Gene Munster is infinitely sad — For nearly a decade, one man has sought the Apple TV as if he were Captain Ahab and the device were his own personal Moby Dick. Yesterday, Gene Munster realized he would never land his white whale, and you could hear his heart break.

NYSE creates a way to standardize the value of bitcoin — The New York Stock Exchange is diving deeper into the world of Bitcoin with the introduction of a bitcoin pricing index. The index, which will be made available through NYSE's Global Index Feed and free on its website for a limited time, is intended to serve as a definitive benchmark for valuing the currency - in the same way that the LIBOR index is used to measure global interest rates.
