Top Tech Stories 2018
Technology is superseding expectations every day. 2018 brought some surprises with regards to that and we saw some top stories emerging on the forefront.
This year, some stories emerged on the top and even we couldn’t help but admire the heights technology has reached this year.
If you have missed out, here are the top 4 tech stories of this year.
Top Stories: Self Driving Tech By Telsa
Elon Musk is a name that everybody knows of today. Elon is actively involved in social media stories too and is also known for his wit sometimes.
Telsa, owned by Musk, made rounds this year with its self-driving cars. Fully autonomous vehicles are now a thing, as they hit the streets this year of a major US city with no driver driving the car.
It’s a big deal for sure.
Telsa showcases the Semi, Model S and the new Roadster that made big rounds this year.
Self-driving cars are here to stay. The technology, which developed in 2017, has now emerged as a massive deal in 2018.
Top Stories: Cryptocurrency Rise
Cryptocurrency is no new phenomenon. In 2017, cryptocurrency dropped big time but it is still an attractive catch. Why? Simply because crypto was asked by hackers as ransom and payment to unlock big things such as WannaCry infected computers.
Cryptocurrency is the future of currency, some say, and therefore, a major development this year too.
Top Stories: Susan Fowler On Uber’s Sexual Culture
A former employee of Uber, Susan Fowler, revealed this year that Uber’s culture is toxic and rife with sexual advances.
In a post called “Reflecting On One Very, Very Strange Year At Uber“, she wrote that the company has people who fully harass you, even if they are the top performers.
Silicon Valley still deals with sexual harassment by in large and people who speak up about it have to bear the brunt. Or in simple words, deal with the consequences.
Top Stories: Smart Speakers
The world cannot stop acknowledging Google Home and Echo. Apple is also trying to make its way there with the HomePod.
Smart speakers are about to change how you listen to music and take sound in your home.
