Tesla won’t be joining the scooter wars. But electric bikes? Yeah, maybe.
During a lengthy podcast with Recode’s Kara Swisher, Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked about everything from AI and his fights on Twitter with journalists to Saudi Arabia and Mars. Even scooters. Of course, scooters.
But don’t get your hopes up for a Tesla scooter. According to Musk, they lack dignity. Swisher’s persistence on the topic wasn’t enough to
Here’s the exchange. You can listen to the entire 80-minute session here.
Kara: Make a scooter. Make a scooter and I’ll go for it. They actually are electric, what am I talking about?
Elon: I don’t know, there was some people in the studio who wanted to make a scooter, but I was like, “Uh, no.”
Kara: I love the scooter, no, get on the scooter.
Elon: It lacks dignity.
Kara: No, it doesn’t lack dignity.
Elon: Yes, they do.
Kara: They don’t lack dignity, what are you talking about?
Elon: Have you tried driving one of those things? They —
Kara: Yes, I do it all the time, I look fantastic.
Elon: They do not, you are laboring under an illusion.
Kara: All right, well, everybody at Lime, don’t worry, Elon Musk is not coming for you.
Elon: Electric bike. I think we might do an electric bike, yeah.
The 10 Best Aftermarket Parts For Your Ford Bronco
For those unfamiliar with the tools of the great outdoors, a winch is a device that employs a spool, a length of cable, usually steel braided, and a hook of some kind to aid in several tasks. The most common use of a winch on a 4X4 is to help it get out of a stuck situation. Should your Bronco get mired in mud or fail to overcome a big rock, letting out the winch cable and hooking it onto something solid, like a stout tree, enables the winch to pull it to freedom.
Winches come with various levels of power and cable types and can be installed in various locations. For the purposes of an offroad Bronco, the front bumper is ideal. Not only can it get itself out of a sticky situation, but you can also help a friend by pulling them to safety. Winches can also be set to task as tools. In an emergency, for example, a winch can help to remove a fallen limb somewhere or to drag a heavy object from a body of water.
The Drive notes that winches can be electric, which is handy as the Bronco comes with auxiliary switches for accessories, or hydraulic, running off a power steering pump. Cost ranges from around $350 to $900 and some of the most popular brands are Warn and Superwinch.
Here’s Why You Need To Stop Using Internet Explorer Immediately
Why should you change web browsers now that Internet Explorer is at its final end? It all comes down to security. Internet Explorer is about to become inarguably insecure software, with a security level that grows ever weaker from this point forward.
Web browsers are regularly updated with new security measures and fixes to potential exploits that could allow an outside party to do all sorts of unpleasant things to your system. Stealing personal information, acquiring credit card or bank account numbers, learning passwords to one or more of your various online services, that kind of thing. Keeping your browser up-to-date reduces the risk of being compromised, and can often remove weaknesses you may not have even known were there.
By continuing to use a web browser after support has been halted, you’re leaving yourself vulnerable to attacks from cagey web links, spam emails, and so on. With no more updates on the horizon, any exploits found from here on out will never be patched up — and you probably won’t even be made aware of them since nobody is maintaining the software anymore. The longer you wait to switch to a new browser, the greater the risk.
Dropped web browser support also means non-security updates are also off the table. No more new features, no eventual improvements to clunky design, and perhaps most importantly: no compatibility updates. At some point, certain basic features just won’t work with an outdated browser anymore. Like it or not, Internet Explorer’s time is up — for real, this time.
Sony LinkBuds S Promise ANC And All-Day Comfort
Even though Sony suggests LinkBuds S are the smallest in-ear wireless headphones, they have still managed to cram in reasonably sized 5mm drivers. For comparison, this is only slightly smaller than the 6mm drivers used on the WF-1000XM4.
The product also gets Sony’s Integrated Processor V1 — the same chip we saw on the recently launched Sony WH-1000XM5. This chip claims to improve the overall sound quality of the product by reducing distortion and improving noise cancelation. Sony LinkBuds S earbuds also support “High-Resolution Audio Wireless” with LDAC as well as an autoplay feature that activates the moment users place the buds in their ears.
Sony’s latest earbuds claim a battery life of up to six hours, with the supplied charging case further enhancing the playback time to 14 hours. When completely discharged, the LinkBuds S can be charged for five minutes to get an additional 60 minutes of playback time.
Another interesting feature on the LinkBuds S is support for the Niantic AR game “Ingress.” Sony says LinkBuds S earbuds use sensor and spatial sound technology to combine a great visual and sonic experience. It’s also suggested by Niantic that further integration with their Lightship platform should allow expanded functionality with LinkBuds earbuds soon.
Sony’s LinkBuds S earbuds go on sale starting May 20, 2022, and come in two color options, White and Black, with a suggested retail price of 199.99. They will be available via Sony.com, Amazon, and other authorized dealers. A third color option called “Ecru” is also set to be available as an exclusive release from Best Buy.
