It's been a big story that tech companies are staying private longer. And there are fewer and fewer tech IPOs. It seemed like the drought was lifting: Uber and Lyft have filed for initial public offerings, and there were rumors that Airbnb, Pinterest and Slack might finally pull the trigger. But three weeks into 2019 and the Securities and Exchange Commission isn't picking up the phone. The SEC lawyers and accountants who work on IPOs are shut down, along with the government. And if this shutdown goes on much longer, the big names might be fine, but it could chill...
Internet-connected doorbells with cameras built in are becoming very popular. Amazon-owned Ring is the best-known product. Google also has the Nest Hello. But the rise of doorbell video has privacy experts worried about the potential for misuse and abuse of these home surveillance devices. Users can shame people or unrightly label people or behavior as suspicious. And the companies that make this tech might have access to the video in ways customers don't understand. Molly Wood talks with Laura Norén, director of research at Obsidian Security. She says part of the problem is that owners of video doorbells are filming...
Many users think of Instagram as the younger, cooler Facebook. And advertisers think so, too. In the first installment of my interview with Mark Rabkin, vice president of ads and business platform at Facebook, we talked about how Facebook has changed some rules around ads as part of an effort to clean up its "data supply chain," and whether that has advertisers leaving the platform. Many ad dollars are migrating from Facebook, but not away from the company altogether. They're shifting to Instagram (which is owned, of course, by Facebook).
One analyst estimates that ads on Instagram will account for 70...
You, or people you know, might have quit Facebook over the last year or so. But you know who hasn't left? Advertisers. Facebook is still the second-biggest digital ad platform in the world, just behind Google. And in 2018, a lot of us realized just how Facebook uses our posts, our connections, photos, location, the quizzes we take, to help advertisers target us. But there have been changes. The past year for Facebook brought the Cambridge Analytica scandal, new privacy rules in Europe and days of getting yelled at by Congress. Now Facebook says it's trying to clean up and...
If you ask the major U.S. telecom companies, they'll tell you the next generation of mobile wireless technology, 5G, has arrived. But things are a little messy right now. Carriers still might mean different things when they say 5G. There aren't any 5G phones that operate on 5G mobile networks. And when there are, how much is the service going to cost? The big carriers are plowing ahead because they'll make a ton of money with business opportunities far beyond just talk, text and data plans. Molly Wood talks about the promise of 5G with Nicki Palmer, chief network officer...

On my first day in Las Vegas for CES 2019, the world’s biggest tech extravaganza, I called down to the front desk of my hotel for a razor.
A few minutes later, someone knocked at my door and handed me the hotel’s standard “shaving kit.” It contained a disposable razor and a tube of shaving cream — heavily scented men’s shaving cream.
I thought, you know, if society is going to tell me that I have to have stubble-free legs...
