Fisker Karma fate goes from worse to worst with bankruptcy

Fisker, the company behind the Karma hybrid sports car, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this weekend. The company hasn't had very good luck these past few years. The company originally set out to make green cars sexy, but it has been floundering for the better part of two years due to car fires, faulty batteries, design flaws, missed milestones set by the US government, a terrible Consumer Reports Review, and Hurricane Sandy. See, no luck.

HBO Needs to Be the Next Netflix

HBO Needs to Be the Next Netflix

Netflix and HBO don’t like each other. Well, at least HBO doesn’t seem to like Netflix. And Netflix? Well, it would love to have HBO content on its streaming service, but it’s not fond of the fact that HBO has no desire to do so. In fact, HBO has clearly drawn a line between its service and Netflix.

Google, all major payment companies shun pay-to-remove mug shot sites

Google, all major payment companies shun pay-to-remove mug shot sites

Google is demoting commercial mug shot websites in search results, the New York Times reports, and MasterCard, PayPal, American Express, Discover and Visa have all stated they are in the process of terminating payment services to the owners of such sites. This mass revolt started when influential reporter David Segal called the search engine and the payment companies with a few simple questions last week. Their spectacularly unified response could drive the 80-plus pay-to-remove mug shot publishing operations into relative obscurity—much to the relief of the millions of people who have ever been arrested but not convicted of any crime.

Android KitKat teased with updates for Hangouts, Gmail, Search

This week the teams behind several of Google's key apps for Android have ushered in updates that tie the family together closer, ushering in an environment ripe for a new operating system iteration. That new version is, of course, Android 4.4 KitKat, and considering Google has been ushering in the press on the subject so readily over the past couple of weeks, there's little doubt that this system is far from ready for prime-time. This weeks' app updates include Gmail for Android, Hangouts for Android, and Google Now - through Google Search, of course.
