The new software will only be deployed to owners of second-generation (HW2) Tesla cars, as the first-generation (HW1) cars don’t have “enough sensors and computing power.” Read more…

Fyre Festival was funny, but now it’s reportedly under investigation by the FBI


The schadenfreude in the aftermath of Fyre Festival proved too irresistible for the internet, but it’s now taken a serious turn.

We once laughed at these rich millennials, sucked into a post-apocalyptic ordeal hyped up by Instagram models and a rapper who hasn’t made anything memorable in a decade (I still love Ja Rule’s Livin’ It Up, just for the record.)

Such an opportunity presented itself on Sunday when Melania Trump posted the following message on social media during her visit to Saudi Arabia with President Trump: “Enjoyed talking to the incredible women working hard @GE_Saudi service center.
