    “Porch Pirates” Steal Holiday Packages | The Daily Show

    With the rise of online retailers, it seems like everything is getting delivered to our doorstep. Last year, my cousin was pregnant, and her baby showed up in an Amazon envelope. Yeah.

NEWSMAN: Faster than they arrived, packages can disappear. Tonight, porch pirates are striking across the country, just as a record number of deliveries are being made.

There is only one Mona Lisa, right? Well, maybe not. This morning, what might be another Mona Lisa. If it turns out to be a real Mona Lisa, it could be worth half a billion dollars. This controversial other portrait, so similar to Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, has long sparked intense debate. Is it just a copy or an earlier version finished by da Vinci himself?

    Who wins from Twitter’s political ad ban? | Tech Wash

    Jack Dorsey has quite the sense of timing. Just minutes before Facebook was set to announce its latest set of financial results the Twitter chief executive suddenly grabbed all the headlines by announcing that his company will no longer accept political advertising. Political reach, he said, should be earned and not bought. And that decision has refocused attention on Facebook’s stance of accepting any political advert even if it contains manifest falsehoods. That stance has got Mark Zuckerberg into trouble, especially among Democrats, who are worried that Donald Trump is going to flood Facebook with false claims in his adverts in the run up to 2020. But, just as interesting…

    How To Set Product Alternatives – Printful

    We’ve created the alternative products tool to help you keep your orders running smoothly in case a product is out of stock.

    How Cloud Computing Became a Big Tech Battleground | WSJ

    – [Narrator] IBM, Google, Microsoft, all are making big bets on cloud computing. That’s for good reason. Research firm Gartner forecasts cloud computing revenues to exceed $260 billion dollars in 2020. For years Amazon’s AWS led the market. But, that lead is starting to slip as other firms make moves to bolster their cloud computing offerings. In October, Microsoft surprised onlookers when it won the U.S. military’s JEDI cloud contract. It could be worth $10 billion dollars over 10 years. Some in Washington expect Amazon to appeal this decision. In July, IBM spent $34 billion dollars to acquire RedHat and boost it’s cloud business. So, why are tech firms going…
