    These are the best technology stocks of 2021

    Traders work on the floor at the New York Stock Exchange. Brendan McDermid | Reuters Technology stocks have been far from a sure bet since 2021 began its stretch run in mid-November. Inflationary concerns and fears of rising interest rates pushed investors out of software and internet companies, sending scores of prior outperformers into correction territory. Despite the sell-off and the volatility across wide swaths of the tech industry, investors have made a bundle of money betting on specific companies and stories. Certain areas of the semiconductor market ballooned this year, as demand soared for processors that could speed crypto

    Perfectly Preserved Dinosaur Embryo Found Inside Fossilised Egg in Rare Discovery

    Paleontologists have found a never-seen-before fossil of a complete baby dinosaur curled up inside its egg. The fossil showed the remarkable similarities between theropod dinosaurs and the birds they would evolve into, according to a new study. The 70-million-year-old fossilised embryo has been named “Baby Yingliang” after the museum in China which houses it. The embryo is curled up inside its 6-inch elongated eggshell. At this stage, the embryo looks like that of a modern bird, but it has small arms and claws rather than wings. The egg is about 17cm long and the baby dinosaur curled inside it is

    Airless tires: Why you’ll want this game-changing technology

    It’s nearly 2022 and we have phones that survive water damage, folding digital screens and so much more. Yet, rubber tires filled with air remain the go-to way to help a car roll around. That’s the way it’s been for decades but it’s going to change soon. When 2024 rolls around, we may finally see a revolution in tire technology, thanks to airless tires. Michelin is one of several tiremakers that have been developing airless tires but they seemed as unlikely to become a reality as GM’s early vision of self-driving cars.

    MIRAMAR, Fla. – A body recovered more than 30 years ago has finally been identified, bringing closure to a family that has been searching for answers for decades. It’s all thanks to an international missing persons database, a fingerprint, and a detective at the Miramar Police Department. It was in November of 1988 when police said 30-year-old Jorge Coste-Castillo took a trip from New York down to Miramar with his best friend to purchase horses.

    After AWS outage, Larry Ellison says Oracle’s cloud never ‘goes down’

    Oracle Executive Chairman of the Board and Chief Technology Officer, Larry Ellison Kimberly White | Getty Images Oracle’s cloud infrastructure service is still way behind Amazon. But that doesn’t keep Larry Ellison, Oracle’s billionaire co-founder, from taking every available opportunity to tout his cloud over the competition. At the end of Oracle’s quarterly earnings conference call on Thursday, Ellison made a veiled swipe at Amazon Web Services, which suffered a major outage this week, taking down a wide swath of websites and internet services and knocking out critical tools used by Amazon’s own delivery workers. Ellison didn’t specifically reference the
