New video shows how big Tesla’s Gigafactory really is

Anything called a “Gigafactory” being built in the Nevada desert was always going to be big. (There’s no other reason to build something in the Nevada desert, for one.) But a new behind-the-scenes video from Wired shows the speed and ambition that Tesla is applying to building Elon Musk’s new supervillain lair the factory where the Model 3 will be made.

The Gigafactory is under construction in Sparks, Nevada. When it’s finished, it will be the biggest building in the world by footprint, and will churn out batteries for 500,000 Model 3s per year. But first, Tesla needs four walls and a roof.

Even more leaked photos of the Galaxy Note 7 we want

The Galaxy Note 7 is going to be unveiled in a few days, and Samsung’s next-gen phablet — what will likely become the best performing Android device of the year — will finally be official. However, most leaks so far have suggested the phone will come in a single curved “edge” flavor, which isn’t necessarily good news for everyone. More →

iPhone Sales

Apple sold its billionth iPhone last week

Apple sold its billionth iPhone last week

When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone back in 2007, the Apple co-founder laid out a rather modest goal for the company’s revolutionary smartphone — to sell 1 million units. At the time, 1 million in unit sales represented approximately 1% of the global smartphone market. And not only did Apple reach that goal with ease, it quickly became apparent that the iPhone itself was a juggernaut, a once-in-a-lifetime product that would forever change the way we interact with technology.

With each passing quarter, iPhone sales continued to skyrocket. Indeed, it wasn’t until the company’s March 2016 quarter that iPhone sales would experience their first year-over-year sales decline. That said, Apple last week reached an impressive new milestone — 1 billion iPhones sold.

This magic chat app puts Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Skype all in one place

I spend a significant portion of my day swapping between messaging apps: Slack for work, Facebook Messenger for friends in the US and WhatsApp for friends abroad. It can be frustrating at times, but at this point, it’s simply part of my routine. But what if it didn’t have to be? What if I could have them all in one place?

Introducing: All-in-One Messenger.

Suicide Squad Quentin Tarantino Parody Trailer

Amazing fake trailer shows us what Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Suicide Squad’ would look like

Suicide Squad is hopefully going to be one of the best movies from the DC Comics cinematic universe, a story about a team of anti-heroes assembled by the US government to take part in a crucial suicide mission. We’ve already seen a variety of trailers featuring some of the most dangerous members of this squad, so we know what kind of characters to expect. But what if Quentin Tarantino made Suicide Squad? Would we have the same villains in this deadly team? Would they even stick to a DC Comics script? Would it somehow be even bloodier?

Motorola Security Updates

Motorola isn’t worried about making sure your Android phone is secure

Motorola isn’t worried about making sure your Android phone is secure

We’ve all heard it before: the best thing you can do to keep your computer safe from hackers is to update regularly. Software companies push updates to fix known flaws in their operating systems, and hackers routinely search for old software versions so that they can take advantage of known security flaws that no one’s bothered to patch yet.

So it’s a little unnerving to hear that Motorola, maker of some of the world’s best Android phones, doesn’t really think that making Android security updates available in a timely manner is particularly important.

Samsung boss allegedly caught on camera soliciting prostitutes

It shouldn’t be anyone’s business what you choose to do with your free time, but if you’re the boss of one of the largest companies in the world, you should at least make sure nobody finds out about your predilections. After all, everyone has a pretty decent camera in their pocket these days, and Samsung makes a huge number of them. He may be in a coma right now, but Samsung Group chairman Lee Kun-hee is being investigated for having allegedly solicited the services of prostitutes multiple times between 2011 and 2013.

This Macbook lookalike promises insane power for $750

Xiaomi is a Chinese tech company best known for making cheap-and-cheerful Android phones which offer flagship-phone specs for half price. So it’s not surprising that the company is applying the same formula for its first laptop.

What is surprising is how much it looks like a Macbook, but also how good the specs are for $750. Laptops this cheap aren’t meant to have integrated graphics, an inch-thick aluminum body and 8GB of RAM, but clearly Xiaomi didn’t get the memo.

Microsoft thinks its new iOS camera app takes better photos than the iPhone

Microsoft is not a real contender in the smartphone business when it comes to hardware, but the company keeps launching exciting new apps for other platforms – or buying cool mobile apps – in its quest to dominate iPhone and Android. One such app from the software giant is Pix, a “smarter” camera app that’s supposed to take better pictures than the default iPhone camera app. Or, at least, that’s what Microsoft says. More →
