Michael Kovac/Getty Snap has recently redesigned the Snapchat app to make the distinction between friends and brands clearer. Users have reacted overwhelmingly negatively to the visual changes. This prompted analysts at Citi to downgrade its stock rating from "Neutral" to "Sell." Wall Street is not impressed by the Snapchat redesign. Analysts at Citi bank are the latest to downgrade Snap's stock rating, going from "Neutral" to "Sell" in a note to investors on Thursday morning.

The words left Liz Swaney's lips without an ounce of irony. No telling curl of the lips. No wink. Nothing. She meant them. All of them. "I didn't qualify for finals so I'm really disappointed," the 33-year-old Californian said after coming in last in the 24-woman field during Olympic women's halfpipe qualifying on Monday. She seemed ... surprised. Even though her score of 31.40 was more than 40 points behind France's Anais Caradeux, whose 72.80 marked the lowest of the 12 skiers to move on to Tuesday's medal round. Even though Swaney finished in about the same position in... [Read More]

AP Images / J. Scott Applewhite There's an Apple software bug currently affecting iPhones, iPads, and Macs — and some pranksters are taking advantage of it. The bug means a keyboard character from the Indian language Telugu can crash applications as soon as it shows up in a text field. As Mashable first reported, a number of Twitter users are intentionally posting the Telugu character in hope that it will show up in some people's timelines, and crash their device whether they see it intentionally or by accident.See the rest of the story at Business Insider NOW...

YouTube / SpaceX A website called Where Is Roadster is tracking Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster in space.

Musk cheekily tweeted about the site on Sunday, saying his car "must be parked around here somewhere." Earlier this month, SpaceX launched Falcon Heavy, the most powerful operational rocket in the world, that used Elon Musk's very own Tesla Roadster as its payload.

The allegations were levied as the #MeToo movement was mushrooming, and the fallout at BetterWorks was widespread. Kris Duggan, the 43-year-old CEO, has disputed the allegations but resigned from the company he... [Read More]

Redesigning cities has become all the rage in the tech world, with Google parent company Alphabet leading the race to build a new city of its own and companies like Y Combinator, Lyft, Cisco, and Panasonic all vying to design the...
