    NEW YORK (AP) – Not that long ago, the clunky cable box looked like it was on its way out.
    The federal government was pressuring cable companies to open up their near-monopoly on boxes to more competition, and industry leader Comcast promised apps that could render some boxes obsolete.
    That was then. Today, the vast majority of customers still need to rent a box to get full service from cable providers, and those box-replacing apps remain elusive.

    NEW YORK (AP) – The Boy Scouts of America anticipated President Donald Trump would spark controversy with a politically tinged speech at its national jamboree in West Virginia but felt obliged to invite him out of respect for his office, its leader said Wednesday in his first public comments on the furor over Trump’s remarks.

    Welcome to the Facebook ad creep.
    The world’s biggest social media company has squeezed about as many ads onto its main platform as it can. The fancy term for this is “ad load,” and Facebook warned investors back in 2016 that it has

    AUSTIN (AP) – Cities and counties in Texas couldn’t partner with abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood under a bill approved by the Republican-controlled state Senate.
    The measure cleared the chamber 21-10 on Wednesday, after first hitting the floor in a post-midnight session. Approval came less than a week after Planned Parenthood and others sued Texas over a new state law banning a common second-trimester abortion procedure.
