Hi, friends. Welcome to the latest issue of Newley’s Notes, a newsletter in which I share my Wall Street Journal stories, posts from my blog, and links about tech and life.
Two programming notes:
First, on subject matter. I’ve been sharing five “must-read” tech stories, usually on the week’s most significant developments. But I’ve gotten the best feedback from readers on, well, the more entertaining stuff! So I’m shifting a bit, at least for now, and will share the *most fun* tech-ish news, with one unabashedly silly item at the end.
Second, on scheduling. Newley’s Notes will be on summer holiday for the next couple of weeks, returning the week of Aug. 20.
On to this week’s NN.
