In the nearly two years since, the government’s effort has accelerated. On September 15th, the Wall Street Journal reported that an antitrust case against the company could come by...

The ruling followed an emergency hearing Sunday morning — hours before the app-store ban was set to take effect — in which lawyers for the Chinese-owned app argued that the ban would infringe on First Amendment rights and do irreparable harm to the business.

    There's an emerging industry thought to be only science fiction not too long ago that's close to becoming a reality: space tourism.  And a handful of companies – including one publicly traded name – are competing neck and neck to be leaders in the emerging market. But what space tourism entails, and how much it costs per person, varies greatly depending on a company's technological capabilities.  For example, both Virgin Galactic and SpaceX expect to fly private paying passengers to space next year. But, while passengers flying with both companies would go to space by the Federal Aviation Administration's definition, a Virgin Galactic passenger spends about 0.04% as much time in space as on a SpaceX trip, while a ride with Elon Musk's company...
