Musk Defends Autopilot Safety Record Following Fatal Crash


CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday accused Fortune magazine of incorrectly reporting Tesla Motors’ handling of a fatal accident that involved a Tesla Model S. The incident took place in May. Musk’s online post is the latest salvo in a war of wars between Fortune and Tesla. Musk accused Fortune, in essence, of jumping the gun in its reporting of Tesla’s response to the accident.

Ballmer Points Out Error of Microsoft's Ways


Former CEO Steve Ballmer on Wednesday called out Microsoft on finance reporting and its app strategy for Windows Phone. CEO Satya Nadella this summer laid out his vision for the company in an open letter to employees. It included a Windows 10 strategy founded on universal apps, software that could be scaled to Xbox One, Window Phones, tablets and desktops. That’s the wrong way to go — Windows Phone needs to support Android apps, Ballmer asserted during Microsoft’s annual shareholder’s meeting.

The first human brain-to-brain interface has been created. In the future, will we all be linked telepathically?

Professor X, X-Men
International researchers are reporting that they have built the first human-to-human brain-to-brain interface, allowing two humans — separated by the internet — to consciously communicate with each other, directly from one brain to another. In short, the researchers have created a device that enables telepathy. In the future, rather than vocalizing speech — or vainly attempting to vocalize your emotions — your friend/lover/family member might just pluck those words and thoughts right out of your head.
