After requiring customers who ordered the Essential phone to provide their driver’s license information over email to verify their shipping address, CEO Andy Rubin today apologized for the incident in a blog post, calling it “humiliating” and that he is “personally responsible for this error.”

The team has also disabled the “misconfigured” account to prevent people from accidentally sharing their personal information with other Essential customers, and Rubin promises to invest in infrastructure and customer care.

With countries starting to give the non-electric car an end date, some automakers are starting to do the same.
British sports car firm Aston Martin will go completely hybrid by 2025, its CEO Andy Palmer told Financial Times on Tuesday.

Western Digital has long been the go-to name for physically backing up your files — and a new acquisition means it’s now looking to take on cloud storage, too. The company announced today that it’s purchased Upthere, which offers apps that sync files and photos across devices, and it intends to continue building out the service.
Upthere was founded in 2011 but only went public with its first apps in 2015. It’s been quiet since then, which suggests the company’s apps didn’t catch on. Upthere promised to simplify syncing and later finding your files, but that’s a pretty difficult pitch, especially since Google and Apple have been getting much better at both of those things in the past couple years — and they don’t always charge you for it.

Handbook for Mortals, the debut novel from Lani Sarem, hit bookstores last week and quickly reached the number one spot on The New York Times Young Adult Hardcover Bestseller list.

While a YA fantasy novel hitting a bestseller list isn’t all that uncommon, Handbook for Mortals earned a considerable amount of scrutiny when some authors and publishers began to look into the novel’s surprisingly high sales figures, eventually prompting the Times to remove the book from its list.
Sarem and her publisher are now accused of…
