a pair of 2016 tech stories

Somehow, it’s still election season! Awesome! Here are two new scoops from me, if you missed them over the past two weeks:

Apple CEO raising cash for top House GOP’er: “Apple CEO Tim Cook will host a fundraiser with House Speaker Paul Ryan next week as the iPhone maker tries to strengthen its relationships with key Republicans — despite its decision to pull support for the GOP convention because of its distaste for Donald Trump.”

Hillary Clinton to release tech agenda: Before the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee released her platform, I snagged a draft copy. As predicted, it “strongly defends net neutrality, calls for a special commission to study encryption and commits to bringing broadband to 100 percent of U.S. households by 2020,” among other items.
