Lily, the autonomous camera drone that sold a whopping $34 million in preorders, has announced it is shutting down. In an email sent to customers about an hour ago, the startup said that it was unable to raise an additional round of funding which would have allowed it to start production of the drone. So it announced instead that it will be winding down the company, and offering an automatic refund to all preorder customers.

Uber Technologies Inc. has asked its Russian drivers to temporarily bear the load of a new tax charge, causing some of them quit to avoid paperwork and tax filings. President Vladimir Putin signed a law in July to levy an 18 percent value-added tax on electronic goods and services provided by global internet giants starting in 2017.

There’s a lady I’ve been thinking about for the past few days, even though we’ve never met. She’s the central character in a true story told by the Europe expert Anand Menon. He was in Newcastle just before the referendum to debate the impact of Britain leaving the EU.

Just 10 days into the new year, the pound has already established a firm grip on its 2016 position as the worst-performing Group-of-10 currency. Sterling dropped to the lowest level versus the dollar since October on Tuesday amid concern the U.K. is heading for a exit from the European Union that prioritizes curbing immigration over single-market membership. That’s left analysts braced for another volatile 12 months, with HSBC Holdings Plc strategists predicting that the pound may drop to as low as $1.10 if the most severe exit option is pursued.

With a median household income of $40,581, millennials earn 20 percent less than boomers did at the same stage of life, despite being better educated, according to a new analysis of Federal Reserve data by the advocacy group Young Invincibles. The analysis being released Friday gives concrete details about a troubling generational divide that helps to explain much of the anxiety that defined the 2016 election. Millennials have half the net worth of boomers. Their home ownership rate is lower, while their student debt is drastically higher.

Your medical data is for sale – all of it. Adam Tanner, a fellow at Harvard’s institute for quantitative social science and author of a new book on the topic, Our Bodies, Our Data, said that patients generally don’t know that their most personal information – what diseases they test positive for, what surgeries they have had – is the stuff of multibillion-dollar business. But although the data is nominally stripped of personally identifying information, data miners and brokers are working...

Despite a less-than-ideal environment—no breakout bestsellers on the adult fiction side and a lengthy, brutal election cycle that sucked nearly all of the air out of the cultural conversation—unit sales of print books were up 3.3% in 2016 over 2015.

The National Federation of Independent Business’s index jumped 7.4 points last month to 105.8, the highest since the end of 2004, from 98.4. While seven of the 10 components increased in December, 73 percent of the monthly advance was due to more upbeat views about the outlook for sales and the economy, the Washington-based group said.
