Uber will reopen its San Francisco headquarters to staff for the first time since March, in response to some employees who said they’d like the option to work away from home.

In an email to employees Wednesday, the company said that starting Nov. 12, it will begin allowing employees to use the office as long as the city allows, though it’s capping capacity at around 10%, or about 250 employees. The company told employees they can work from home until at least July 2021.

“The biggest message is safety first,” said Michael Huaco, Uber’s vice president of workplace, overseeing the company’s real estate. “

Uber’s reopening offers a window into how large tech companies are navigating the coronavirus pandemic that’s

High-flying U.S. tech stocks get post-election lift, near new highs

By David Randall

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A weaker-than-expected election performance by Democrats and fears of new coronavirus restrictions have prompted investors to double down on high-flying technology stocks, which have come roaring back in recent days to put the Nasdaq within striking distance of a record.

Since Election Day, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite is up 6.6%, easily outpacing the 4.2% gain in the broad S&P 500 over the same time. This was partly driven by investors and traders unwinding trades placed on pre-election assumptions of a Democratic sweep which they thought would usher in higher taxes and more regulation.

Polls had forecast Democrats would solidly win the presidency on Tuesday, extend their control in the House of Representatives and potentially win control of the Senate. While Democratic candidate Joe Biden looks likely to win the presidency, the margin of victory appears to be razor thin; Democrats lost seats in

Get 6 months of Netflix bundled with Chromecast with Google TV streamer for $90


Google has an enticing offer that bundles six months of Netflix with its latest Chromecast. 

David Katzmaier/CNET

Debating getting the new Chromecast with Google TV compared to a Roku, Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV? Google has a bundle that it hopes might sway you toward its new streamer.

The Google Store is offering a bundle of its new Chromecast with six months of Netflix’s Standard plan for $90. Google’s streamer costs $50 on its own while Netflix’s Standard plan, which lets you stream in HD on up to two screens at once, runs $14 per month. Over the course of six months, the Netflix subscription on its own would cost roughly $84, so the savings works out to $44 — basically the same as getting the new Chromecast for $6. 

Those who already have Netflix — either the Standard plan or Netflix’s cheaper Basic or pricier Premium options

From Oprah Magazine

You know Bill Nye the Science Guy, the man who makes concepts like inertia and phases of matter not only digestible, but actually mildly funny. Now, get ready for Steve Kornacki the Election Guy, the man who makes the intolerable wait for the presidential election results a bit more tolerable.

Kornacki, MSNBC and NBC News’s national political correspondent, has been working overtime to relay all the information viewers need to know about the hell storm that is the 2020 election. Seemingly always standing in front of the “big board” (the interactive screen that features live results from states) to interpret those pesky electoral college votes for the uninitiated, Kornacki has maintained a soothing presence over this year’s election cycle.

“I think I’ll forget to eat a lot during election week,” he recently told GQ of his process. “Certainly on election night.
