One of the Brains Behind Tesla May Have a New Way to Make Electric Cars Cheaper

The idea of electric cars always seemed too good to be true, and some people have tried to challenge the idea of zero emissions and all things that go with electric mobility by designing dangerous, unstable, and, in some instances, dangerous to a person’s health concept cars. We’ve seen video after video of fairly deadly off-road electric cars, and one of the biggest criticisms that Tesla has faced from many critics is that it’s been too slow to make its cars safer. What if Tesla could shake up this whole…

What Wall Street Says About a Ban on Micron’s Huawei Sales

The USA bans the sale of telecom hardware made by Chinese telecom Huawei from its contractors. In April, it was reported that Micron Technology has deals with the Federal Communications Commission, which provides it with a network of resellers which sell chips for carrier’s next-generation wireless chipsets. Washington’s woes have largely focused on its relationship with China.

The expanded space, a giant transport carrier, the lights and sound, and other physical attributes of a mall or grocery store continued…

I once brought him a Proporta cart and set up an off-grid vending station. It was an awesome experience. And it started me thinking about the future of renewable energy. What if…

Lyft is providing some drivers with vehicle partitions for free, while others will have to pay

“As long as people are very careful with that technology, I don’t think we should go overboard on restrictive regulations on that,” he told CNN in January. In the same interview, Kalanick said: “I never want to see a full-blown Taxi.” But he argued that it was easy to add certain features to an app for those who want them, so instead of going down that path, Lyft will be “fundamentally a technology company.” But that doesn’t necessarily preclude local regulations. That led the city of Boston to propose restrictions…
