The cotton, polyamide and elastane blend fabric is stretchy and moisture resistant. The company says it can resist stains from spills and wicks away moisture all while looking like a normal pair of pants.

Meet the 26-year-old ex-Googler who got $133 million for a cryptocurrency startup that could replace money completely

Basis CEO Nader Al-Naji just got $133 million to fund his stable cryptocurrency startup Basis, from top tier investors like GV (formerly Google Ventures), Bain Capital Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, and Sky9 Capital. Al-Naji's passion for cryptocurrencies began with a bitcoin mining rig he built in his Princeton dorm.  Al-Naji quit his job at Google in order to work on his cryptocurrency, called Basis, which has a stable value determined algorithmically. In theory, that will make it more useful as a currency, and not just a vehicle for speculation.

Today, Nader Al-Naji is the CEO of Basis — a hot cryptocurrency startup, with grand ambitions to replace regular money, and which recently


This CEO explains why his legal tech startup took $22 million in funding even when it didn't need it

Legal tech startup Logikcull provides eDiscovery software, helping lawyers sift through massive piles of documents. It competes with the likes of Symantec and Microsoft. Logikcull raised $22 million in January, even though it didn't need it, says Wilson. The CEO tells us it's because Logikcull has surged in popularity in the legal world.  Its best-known customer might be the legal team representing the gymnasts suing Michigan State University for its role in the Larry Nassar case.

Logikcull, a San Francisco-based startup that makes eDiscovery software, didn't need the money when Silicon Valley venture firm New Enterprise Associates approached the company last year. Yet, the firm gave Logikcull $22 million, preempting its next funding round, the company announced in January. 


Snapchat's Spectacles are new and improved, but they don't solve the fundamental problems with wearing cameras on your face (SNAP)

Last week, Snapchat's parent company Snap Inc. introduced its second-generation camera glasses, called Spectacles.

I actually tried the first-generation Snapchat Spectacles in November 2016, and I have to say, as much as I loved the concept behind the camera glasses, I wasn't impressed with the overall design or execution of this particular vision.

Unfortunately, the new second-generation Spectacles don't solve the biggest problems I had with the first model:

First, the pros: Snap did make some improvements in Spectacles 2.0. The new Spectacles are slimmer, and so is the charging case it comes with. Snap also removed those ugly yellow circles around each camera from the 1.0 model, which you can see below.

Journalists worry comedian Michelle Wolf's biting monologue at the White House Correspondents' Dinner went too far

Russia, China, and the US are in a hypersonic weapons arm race — and officials warn the US could be falling behind

Russia, China, and the US are competing in a hypersonic weapons arms race. These weapons can travel at above mach 5 and are maneuverable, making them extremely difficult to intercept. Comments by US officials about Russia and China's recent gains have led some to believe that the US is currently losing the race. The situation is more complex — Russia and China appear to be ahead of the US in terms of nuclear-capable hypersonic weapons, but the US is leading the way in hypersonic weapons that carry conventional payloads.

Three of the most powerful nations on Earth — Russia, China, and the US — are in an arms race for hypersonic weapons and the US might be lagging behind.

Google's mysterious 'Fuchsia' operating system could run Android apps – and it's a huge step to prevent a flop (GOOG)

Google seemingly added Android app support to its mysterious unreleased operating system called "Fuchsia." Without Android app support, app developers would need to build new apps for the Fuchsia operating system. App developers don't often make apps for less popular operating systems, as shown by the death of Windows Phone.

Google is developing a mysterious multi-device operating system called "Fuchsia," and it looks like the company recently added a feature to the software that could drastically improve its chances of catching on with consumers.

On Thursday, it was revealed by a member of the XDA Developers forum that

Move over, lemonade stand, because these kids may have found the next great way to make pocket money.

It's just another sign of how "Fortnite: Battle Royale," the last-player-standing island deathmatch video game, has become a global phenomenon.
