This carbon 3D-printed Rolls-Royce Cullinan is a $500,000 upgrade

Published

on

The Cullinan is the Rolls-Royce of SUVs, so what does this make 1016 Industries’ carbon-fiber, 3D-printed Cullinan? You can call it anything you like, but it is indeed a dignified way to go sporty. We highly prefer it over the quirky Mansory Rolls-Royce Cullinan unveiled last year for the 50th founding anniversary of the United Arab Emirates, and it’s all thanks to the crafty use of 3D printing for the details.

The entire thing is not 3D-printed, if you catch our drift. Still, it does get an array of exclusive carbon-fiber body panels that were – that’s right – 3D-printed in the Miami facility of aftermarket carbon specialist 1016 Industries. The company’s been doing it for a while, and it has already launched modification programs for the McLaren 570 GT, Lamborghini Urus, and Ferrari F12, to mention a few.

But now, 1016 Industries is ready to enter the ultra-premium luxury realm with its interpretation of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, perhaps the poshest SUV on Earth. Of course, we’re saying this with high regard to luxury SUV stalwarts like the Bentley Bentayga, Aston Martin DBX, and Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600.

1016 Industries claims their latest creation has a lighter curb weight than a bone-stock Rolls-Royce Cullinan, but the tuning firm failed to mention how much. We believe them, though, since the SUV has an extensive array of lightweight carbon panels. It has a new front bumper with new running lights, new fenders, a reconfigured rear bumper with a unique and rather subtle rear diffuser, and a new boot lid-mounted rear spoiler for good measure.

“We’re incredibly pleased with new Cullinan, which utilizes advanced manufacturing techniques that have never been successfully adopted in the industry before on this scale,” said 1016 Industries head honcho Peter Northrop via Top Gear UK. We can’t help but notice the Cullinan’s lower ride height and new dark wheels, either, which look awesome.

Of course, 1016 Industries will only make limited examples of its Rolls-Royce Cullinan, and the modification starts at around $500,000. There was no mention of engine mods, so we figure it has the same 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 motor with 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.

Given the firm’s delivery of ECU tuning with other custom vehicles in the past, it’s a fair bet they’ll be able to hike up your Cullinan’s power output too (for the right price.)

Here’s What Hackers Are Really Doing With Your Info

Published

on

F1 Solutions explains what hackers are really doing with your data: selling it, exposing it, holding it for ransom, mining it for valuable info like credit card numbers, using it for other hacks, or simply showing it off. Some hacks have nothing to do with money; instead, the attackers are out for revenge. Others hack into “unhackable” systems or organizations just to show off or leak data in retaliation for something.

However, most cybercriminals are out for financial gain, and stolen data can contain valuable information. From credentials to credit cards and social security numbers, everything today is stored online. Hacked data is also sold in bulk on the dark web. F1 Solutions says social security numbers can sell for as low as $1, credit or debit cards from 50 cents to $1 per card (they’re often sold in bundles), and Paypal credentials can be worth as much as $200. Driver licenses, digital and physical passports, and even medical information are also sold online.

Ransomware, meanwhile, is a growing trend where hackers usually target small and medium organizations, take control of their systems and data, and then offer the company the chance of recovering their computers once a ransom is paid. Given the rise of blockchain technology, it’s also not surprising to learn that digital wallet credentials and credentials to NFTs sites are also increasingly stolen. Finally, data can be used to steal identities, commit fraud, do more hacking, and even vandalize websites.

How To Send An Email Draft From Google Docs Directly To Gmail

Published

on

Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) is arguably the most tightly integrated office productivity suite available. The services it features — Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Form — already interconnect with other apps like Google Meet, Keep, and Drive, and with smart chips, Google Docs now seamlessly links with Gmail. The update makes the two apps more cohesive, allowing you to draft and send your emails without leaving Docs.

Smart chips belong to the Google Smart Canvas project, which is Google’s vision for tying all of its Workspace products together. You can access smart chips by simply typing @ in Docs. In addition to the new email feature, Google offers chips for rapid formatting and quickly attaching files, media, menus, and even calendar events (via Google Blog). You can also collaborate on your email drafts with other people just like you would a regular document. These other users can make suggestions, comments, or edits without hopping to a different window. Plus, Google Docs’ grammar and spelling checker now works on Gmail, too.

How to send a Gmail draft directly from Google Docs

You can draft emails within Google Docs, and when you’re ready, you’re given a preview inside a pop-up window and the option to directly send the message (via Google Support).

  1. Create a new Google Docs file (you can use this shortcut to create new documents quickly).

  2. Type @ and select Email Draft from the drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can navigate to Insert > Building blocks > Email draft.

  3. You’ll be greeted with the standard template for an email.

  4. In the “To” section, you can use @ to add saved people or type out their email addresses manually.

  5. Write the subject and email message.

  6. Hit the blue Gmail icon floating next to the template.

  7. A small pop-up window will load the Gmail Compose panel with the relevant text fields already filled out. If Gmail doesn’t support your Google Docs font, you might see a related warning.

  8. You can also make additional formatting changes at this point, attach files, insert signatures, schedule the draft to be sent later, or discard it within the Compose Mail pop-up.

  9. Hit send and close the preview window.

Why you should draft an email in Google Docs

Google’s powerful AI grammar and spellcheck tools will help you write strong, clear, and error-free messages. That may not be a big deal if you’re sending a straightforward reply or question, but you should consider drafting your next important email in Google Docs. Long-form emails sometimes require outlines, charts or tables, which can’t be designed in the Gmail Compose window. You can create, integrate, and email those tables, outline menus, and charts directly from Google Docs, saving you the hassle of copying and pasting them back and forth.

Google Docs also saves a copy of the draft; it can be quickly found with search, retrieved, and edited on the fly. The autosave feature should come in handy when sending an email to multiple addresses, as well. Instead of loading a new window for each recipient, you can simply hit the mail button next to the Gmail template every time. For emails that require approval or contribution from your team members, turn on the share feature built into Docs (via Google). You can then collaborate on emails and receive suggestions without leaving the Google Docs window.

Elon Musk Just Put Up Even More Of His Money To Fund Twitter Takeover

Published

on

Musk has at least one reason to pull away from the Twitter purchase: the company’s shareholders are already beginning to push back against him. The board opted against re-electing longtime Musk supporter Egon Durban, who is the co-CEO of Silver Lake, a private equity firm that Musk could potentially have planned to tap for financial assistance in his campaign to build equity towards the Twitter buy.

Noted by Insider, the deal can be terminated at any point before it becomes finalized in October, for a meager $1 billion. Twitter has asserted that the deal will indeed go through at the full price agreed upon by both parties — $54.20 per share — regardless of any reasoning put up by Elon Musk to back away from the deal, or to drive the price down. Regardless, the Twitter purchase debacle hasn’t been good for Elon Musk’s net worth, which is still heavily tied into Tesla stock prices.
