  1. Pricing for the iPhone 8 hasn’t been announced, but many expect it to meet or exceed the close-to-$1000 cost of the Galaxy Note 8.

  3. The U.S. House of Representatives just approved a bill that will make it easier for car companies to test autonomous vehicles. This is good news unless…
  4. …the folks telling us not to get too excited about the near-future of autonomous vehicles are right.
  5. Following the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, drones are being used to assess damage to homes, office buildings, roads, and more. (And a reminder that 100% of all funds collected by the REALTORS® Relief Foundation go to disaster relief causes. Donate here.)
