NEW YORK (AP) — Hyatt, Sheraton, Marriott and Westin hotels in 10 states and the District of Columbia may have been targeted by hackers for months.

PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) — Tesla says the term "Autopilot" was mistakenly removed from the electric car maker's website for China and it will be restored. The company says it did revise some language on the site to make it clearer to drivers that Autopilot is a driver-assist system and not a self-driving system. Last week, a driver in Beijing relying on Autopilot mode sideswiped a car parked on the side of the road. Tesla says the driver's hands weren't detected on the steering wheel during the crash.
