As countries and states continue to loosen their coronavirus restrictions, we've been keeping an eye out this week for what that means for technology companies. Apple, for instance, reportedly plans to bring employees back to its offices by the summer. Twitter, on the other hand, said some workers can continue working from home permanently. And Uber has rebuilt its app to require drivers and passengers to agree to a checklist of COVID-19 prevention measures before every trip, including wearing a face mask.
Meanwhile, the coronavirus remains a factor in all aspects of tech, from setting new norms for surveillance and privacy to pushing health care online to the making of faster chips that'll let researchers crunch data in days or months instead of years.
