    Microsoft seeks regulation of facial recognition technology

    "We believe Congress should create a bipartisan expert commission to assess the best way to regulate the use of facial recognition technology in the United States," Microsoft President Brad Smith wrote in a blog post. In May, U.S. civil liberties groups had called on Amazon.com Inc to stop offering facial recognition services to governments, warning that the software could be used to target immigrants and people of color unfairly. Smith said while Microsoft appreciates the calls for tech companies to make decisions over facial recognition, it is more sensible to ask an elected government to oversee the technology.

    What's Standing Between Amazon and Top U.S. Secrets: QuickTake

    The U.S. Defense Department is running a winner-take-all competition to choose a cloud-computing company to host its trove of information, perhaps including top national-security secrets, so that warfighters and military leaders can make data-driven decisions at "mission-speed."

    The second quarter of 2018 was the best quarter for personal-computer shipments in more than six years, IDC reported Thursday afternoon, confirming an earlier report from rival Gartner.

Earlier Thursday, Gartner reported the first year-on-year gain since the same quarter, but IDC has tracked gains in the sector in previous quarters while looking at a slightly larger collection of form factors that includes Chromebooks.
