    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

  • Jeb Bush was a pothead

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:27 pm
    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:26 pm
    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates." "I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I…

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.

In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:27 pm
    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm

CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:27 pm
    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates." "I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I…

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:27 pm
    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:27 pm
    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.

In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:27 pm
    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm

CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:27 pm
    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates."

  • For those who have everything: A $60 selfie helper

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates." "I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I…

    "Using a selfie stick is a little like eating an oyster for the first time. Don't knock it until you try it," said Joanna Stern at The Wall Street Journal. If you're going to take a picture of yourself in a particular setting, the photo might as well be good, and putting your camera phone at the end of a pole really helps. You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

You can buy a version online for $5, but don't. The Quik Pod Extreme ($62) from Digipower is one of a handful of higher-quality options. It's our favorite because it's light, telescopes down to a manageable size, and has a confidence-inducing grip.
  • Arizona on high alert for measles ahead of the Super Bowl

    30 Jan 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Arizona health officials are monitoring 1,000 people, including nearly 200 children, who may have been exposed to measles. CBS 10 reports that officials are worried about transmission of the disease at the Super Bowl, because there is a 90 percent transmission rate for anyone who comes into contact with infected people. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the virus after a second measles case, which stemmed from the outbreak at Disneyland, was diagnosed. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the recent outbreak is due, at least in part, to parents not vaccinating…

  • The boredom of 'driving' a self-driving car

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I was a few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and she started jumping up and down. All I could do was laugh, knowing my vigorous wave was in no way a safety hazard. In fact, I hadn't touched the steering wheel in more than an hour. What that little girl didn't know was that I was piloting Audi's latest autonomous vehicle, a prototype designed specifically to handle the monotony of highway driving. I was riding along on…

  • Jeb Bush was a pothead

    30 Jan 2015 | 1:27 pm
    In a new Boston Globe article, Michael Kranish dives into Jeb Bush's four years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, during which he "smoked a notable amount of pot," according to his classmates. Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he "sometimes bullied smaller students." Bush's classmates also told the Globe that he wasn't particularly interested in politics at the time. Bush apparently "refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates." "I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I…
