Google Accuses Uber Of Stealing Its Self-Driving Car Secrets

On Thursday, Waymo, the autonomous vehicle company owned by Google's parent Alphabet, filed a lawsuit with bombshell allegations against Uber. The accusation is that Uber has stolen a key self-driving technology from the company.

Call it another pothole for Uber.

Reward increases as tips pour in to find in teens' killer
Roughly 1,900 of those tips were received after authorities released a voice recording that came from German's cell phone. Officers said a camera captured an image of their suspect between 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on the same day they went missing.

Meanwhile, Uber said it has taken the allegations seriously and would review the matter carefully. Additionally, Uber and Levandowski are also yet to respond to Waymo's claims about the former Google employee's act of theft in downloading the 9.7 GB worth of confidential files using the company-provided computer. The paper reported the news late Friday, citing two unnamed Uber employees, as well as internal company documents.

Levandowski left Waymo in January a year ago and founded Otto in May.

It's not a naturally occurring chemical and was labeled chemical weapon and banned at the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1993 . According to the police, a preliminary analysis found VX nerve agent on the face of the victim, who was killed on February 13.

Uber acquired self-driving startup Otto past year for $680 million.

Waymo's lawsuit seeks damages from Uber, along with an injunction against the company, stopping it from unfair competitive practices. Google invested $258 million in Uber, but its mapping subsidiary Waze is now expanding a carpooling service that could lure riders away from Uber. Otto was then bought by Uber just a few months from the former's founding. Previous systems have been prohibitively expensive and Waymo sought to design one over 90 percent cheaper, making its Lidar technology among the company's "most valuable assets", Waymo said. Waymo said stealing that is like "stealing a secret recipe from a beverage company". He later wiped and reformatted the laptop in an attempt to erase forensic fingerprints.

Today was the warmest day in February ever recorded in Worcester
The highest temperature Syracuse has ever reached in the month of February is 69 degrees (both yesterday and February 19, 1981). NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey's largest city broke a temperature record as the state enjoyed an early taste of spring.

The San Francisco company has tangled with authorities in California and around the world about how much of its drivers' histories should be covered in background checks and whether those drivers should be treated as contractors ineligible for employee benefits.
