If you're a Windows 7 or 8.1 user, your PC is about to get a truly awesome upgrade. Windows 10 is launching on Wednesday, and it's everything a PC operating system should be: familiar, beautiful, easy to use and helpful in unexpected ways. The best part: it's a free upgrade for just about everyone currently running Windows 7 and 8. #Microsoft   took great pains to get Windows 10 right, opening up a preview version of the software to the public, asking for feedback and making dozens of changes as a result. #Windows10   http://cnnmon.ie/1GZnjM8

Google's self-driving car achieved a notable first earlier this month, though not one that it was eager for - its first accident with injuries. Fortunately, the injuries were minor, according to the company. And #Google  insists that like all the other accidents in its self-driving car program, it was the fault of human drivers, not the self-driving car. The head of Google's self-driving car program said the self-driving Google #Lexus  was stopped at an intersection near its Mountain View, Calif, headquarters on July 1. The light was green but the traffic congestion meant that the Google car, and the two in front of it, could not make it through the intersection without blocking it, he wrote, But the driver of a fourth car didn't notice the stopped traffic, only the green light, and plowed into the back of the Google car at 17 mph, without braking at all. #selfdriving   #selfdrivingcar  htt... more »

The trope used to be that #Android  was for nerds and iPhones were for technophobes. But as Android has gotten easier to use over the years, #iOS  has grown more complex. With iOS 9, Apple's latest mobile operating system that will launch in the fall, the #iPhone  is officially "all growns up." By adding complicated features into iOS 9, #Apple  is giving the iPhone a somewhat steeper learning curve -- but also making it far more useful. Come the fall, your iPhone will be able to better understand the world around you and provide handy information based on where you are, the time of day, who you know and what you've recently been up to. It will also give you a tailored news feed, let you take notes more easily, and it will come with a vastly improved Maps app. http://cnnmon.ie/1MXhfsD

Windows 10 includes a new feature called Wi-Fi Sense, which is making some folks uneasy. Wi-Fi Sense allows you to automatically log your friends onto your Wi-Fi network without ever giving them your password. It's a convenient solution to the awkward "what's your Wi-Fi password?" conversations. In turn, you can use Wi-Fi Sense to automatically connect your Windows 10 PC to your friends' Wi-Fi networks without knowing their passwords. #Windows10   #WiFi   #Microsoft   http://cnnmon.ie/1MW4TkH

Don't you hate waiting in long lines? #Google  knows how you feel. On Tuesday, Google Maps unveiled a feature that will allow you to see a business' "Popular times" for each day of the week. They already have all that location data, so why not put it to use? Based on recent historical visits, Google will indicate the busiest times to hit up the gym, go shopping or grab a coffee. #GoogleMaps  http://cnnmon.ie/1MUJFUj

A #Microsoft  employee for 18 years, Terry Myerson is oddly humble for a man whose products are used by more people than any other #technology  executive's. Myerson took over  Phone in 2011, then the whole Windows team two years later. Last month, he was handed the keys to Microsoft's entire consumer kingdom: Xbox, Surface, mobile and Windows are now all under his umbrella. Windows 10 in particular is crucial to Microsoft's continued growth: Myerson expects more than 1 billion PCs, phones and tablets to be running #Windows10   by 2018. http://cnnmon.ie/1LXrakT

A new #iPhone  can be expensive. If you want to offset the cost by selling your old one, now might be the best time to do it. #Resale values start dropping by about 10% in September and October, according to #eBay  data analyzed by NextWorth, a #gadget  trade-in site. That's generally when #Apple   \releases new versions of the iPhone. If you wait until fall, supply of older iPhones will grow drastically and trade-in values will plummet. By the time November and December roll around, you could lose out on as much as 30% of a phone's secondary market price. http://cnnmon.ie/1GYoQC5

YouTube will no longer require users have a Google+ account to comment on or post videos. The conscious uncoupling is the latest attempt by Google separate its popular products from the flailing social network. More products will announce similar changes in the coming months, #Google  said in a pair of Blogger posts Monday. #YouTube  will be first, and users will soon be able to leave their trademark incisive and intellectual comments on videos without a Google+ account. http://cnnmon.ie/1gj5nHs

Kim #Kardashian  is known for glamour but she has another concern: grammar. The social media queen -- who has almost 34 million Twitter and 40 million #Instagram  followers -- struck a chord with Twitterverse with a suggestion about how to improve the social media platform. Twitter currently does not give users the ability to edit typos or grammatical errors. Tweeters have to delete the tweet and post a new one. Her suggestion? An Instagram-esque feature of editing captions -- tweets, in this case -- after posting them in order to correct any mistakes.The E! star tweeted that she had emailed her request to Twitter. Co-founder and interim #Twitter  CEO Jack Dorsey thanked her for the idea and said the company is "always looking at ways to make things faster and easier." http://cnnmon.ie/1HV9eTJ

Thirty-five women who have accused Bill Cosby of sex assault appear on the current cover of New York Magazine in a stunning statement of unity against the legendary comic. The black-and-white photograph of the women seated in similar poses appears on the July 27 issue. The headline reads, "Cosby: The Women. An unwelcome sisterhood." Cosby, who has not been charged with any crime, has repeatedly denied the accusations. But they gained traction in recent weeks when a deposition from 2005 surfaced in which he admitted to obtaining Quaaludes in the 1970s with the intention of drugging women so he could have sex with them. He never admitted actually giving the drug to the women, however. New York Magazine's website crashed Monday morning for at least six hours and remained down. #BillCosby   #NewYorkMagazine   #NYMag   http://cnnmon.ie/1HUIv9Q

Women in the United States are 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weigh 166 pounds on average. Typical female #videogame  characters are not. To demonstrate how they would look if they had more realistic body figures, an eating disorder help group redesigned Tifa Lockhart, Nabooru, Lara Croft and other kickass video game heroines using Adobe #Photoshop . The parody images on Bulimia.com depict 10 virtual women with less supermodel-like physiques -- bigger arms and legs, wider midsections and hips.

It actually posted a profit! The online #retail  giant's market value is about $260 billion. Walmart is worth a little more than $230 billion. Amazon is now the most valuable retailer in the world.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has halted his controversial plan to regulate the tech company -- at least, for now.
De Blasio had proposed a temporary cap on the number of new licenses issued to Uber and smaller competitors like Lyft.
On Wednesday, the de Blasio administration said it won't take the bill to the City Council, which was expected to happen as soon as Thursday.

Welcome to a future where cars -- like computers -- need urgent software updates. Now that we know Chryslers can be hacked over the Internet, car owners have two options to fix them. One, take your #Chrysler  to the #auto  dealer. Or two, download the update to a USB flash drive, plug it into your car yourself, and hope for the best.
Chrysler explained to CNNMoney that the software patch plugs a hole that unknowingly granted outside access to car controls.

#Drugmakers  are scrambling to figure out a way to manage Alzheimer's, the only leading cause of death that can't be prevented, cured or slowed. Unless a credible Alzheimer's treatment is developed, the memory-destroying disease could cost the U.S. health care system $1 trillion a year by 2050, according to the Alzheimer's Association. Drugmakers are facing an enormous problem -- and a huge opportunity -- and Eli Lilly is helping lead that high stakes race. The pharma giant has made an expensive bet on an experimental drug that could be the first marketed treatment to slow the worsening of Alzheimer's. That would represent a critical medical breakthrough known as "disease modification." New clues on Eli Lilly's big bet, believed to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, will be released on Wednesday at a key industry conference. #Alzheimers   #drug   #EliLilly   ht... more »

The fierce battle between #Uber  and #NYC  Mayor Bill de Blasio heats up this week, a fight that could determine the future of the service in the nation's largest and most ride-dependent city. The New York City Council is considering legislation, perhaps as soon as Thursday's meeting, which would cap any additional licenses granted to for-hire vehicles. Advocates say the moratorium is needed for the city to study Uber's impact on traffic congestion, air quality, noise and public health. De Blasio has argued that the rapid growth of Uber in the city, at a pace he said amounts to 2,000 new cars a month, is a threat to quality of life. #mayor   #deBlasio   http://cnnmon.ie/1ebCrz4

#Apple  appears to be gearing up for a record breaking year.
In the last three months of 2014, Apple posted the biggest quarterly #profit   -- $18 billion -- in corporate history. For Apple's fiscal year, which ends in September, the company is set to rake in $52.5 billion in #earnings . If Apple hits that mark, it would be the largest annual profit ever generated from a company's operations. (Fannie Mae got a giant one-time accounting benefit in 2013 that gave the company a net income of $84 billion). Apple is already in striking distance of besting #ExxonMobil 's record-setting $45 billion profit recorded in 2008. http://cnnmon.ie/1fQu4e2

The cable channel said Thursday that it has officially canceled the show, nearly two months after revelations about acts of child molestation committed by one of the 19 kids, Josh #Duggar , when he was a teenager. Several of his sisters were among the victims. TLC initially pulled the past episodes of "19 Kids and Counting" from its schedule, but kept open the possibility that the show would resume someday. Now it's saying production of the series will not resume, despite its longtime popularity. #19kids   http://cnnmon.ie/1f7pCXq
