Tesla Model S Cheapest Rentals

The cheapest way you can drive a Tesla right now

The cheapest way you can drive a Tesla right now

The Tesla Model 3 is going to be the more affordable Tesla ever… but you’re still years away from being able to actually own one. Since most of us can’t afford to shell out the cash needed to buy either a Model S or Model X right now, that leaves us with one option if we want to drive a Tesla: Rentals.

The problem with rentals, however, is that they’re also pretty expensive. Given the high demand for Teslas on the rental car market, we’ve seen rental agencies charge anywhere from $400 to $900 per day just for the privilege of driving the hugely popular electric vehicles.

However, there is another option that will let you drive a Tesla for significantly less money and it comes in the form of peer-to-peer car rental marketplace Turo.

It was shockingly easy for ’60 Minutes’ to hack a congressman’s iPhone

Mobile security is obviously a major topic these days but it seems very few of us know just how vulnerable our phones are to hacking. 60 Minutes this week decided to give a new iPhone to Representative Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) and then challenge researchers at Security Research Labs to hack it. It goes without saying that the hackers were frighteningly successful in this endeavor and managed to retrieve a lot of sensitive information from the congressman’s device after only learning his phone number.

Apple scores $40 million in gold through its recycling program

We know Apple fans are fanatically loyal to the company, but would you believe they love Apple enough to just give it $40 million worth of gold? Well, they did… even though that wasn’t their intention. 9to5Mac points out that Apple’s latest Environmental Responsibility Report (PDF) shows that it recovered 89 million pounds of materials in its recycling program last year, including $40 million worth of gold. In other words, Apple’s recycling program is not only a good thing for the environment, but a good thing for Apple as well. More →

T-Mobile Vs ATT Cricket Wireless

AT&T finally has an answer for the Un-carrier, but AT&T subscribers can’t have it

AT&T finally has an answer for the Un-carrier, but AT&T subscribers can’t have it

Are you an AT&T subscriber who would like to see your carrier offer unlimited talk, text and data deals like Sprint and T-Mobile do? You can already get an unlimited data plan from AT&T right now, but only if you’re a DirecTV subscriber. Barring that, your next best option is to switch to Cricket Wireless, an AT&T prepaid subsidiary that’s now offering unlimited talk, text and data for just $70 a month. For the record, this is better than T-Mobile’s best offer of $95 per month for unlimited talk, text and data. More →

Uninstall QuickTime For Windows Security

Uninstall QuickTime from your Windows PC right now

Uninstall QuickTime from your Windows PC right now

Do you still have QuickTime installed on your Windows PC for some reason? If so, now is the perfect time to install it — in fact, I’d recommend uninstalling Apple’s video player from your computer right away and without delay. Trend Micro this week put out an “urgent call” for Windows users to uninstall QuickTime mainly because Apple will no longer be issuing new security updates for the software. That means if new vulnerabilities in QuickTime for Windows are discovered, they’ll never be patched. More →

What happens when an iPhone 6 Plus owner switches to the tiny iPhone SE

What happens when an iPhone 6 Plus owner switches to the tiny iPhone SE

For a lot of people, the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus are just too big, which is one reason why it decided to release its new 4-inch iPhone SE. One iPhone 6 Plus owner recently tried switching to the smaller iPhone SE and posted about their experience on Reddit so that people could get a better idea of just how jarring it is to go from using a 5.5-inch phablet to using a tiny 4-inch iPhone. In short, they just can’t live with a tiny iPhone any longer. More →

Microsoft just took a big stand against the government over user privacy

Microsoft says it objects to orders issued by the DOJ that say the company cannot inform customers when law enforcement officials are seeking access to customer information and data. More →

Apple Car Motor Trend Video

This is Motor Trend’s vision of the Apple Car that everyone has been waiting for

This is Motor Trend’s vision of the Apple Car that everyone has been waiting for

The “Apple Car” is a mythical creation for the time being and no one knows what it really looks like or if it really even exists. Motor Trend this week took a stab at making a concept model for the “Apple Car” that the publication says is based on “exhaustive” research despite being “entirely speculative” in nature. The idea here is that Motor Trend decided to compare how much Apple had applied minimalist design principles to computers and phones and see what would happen if they tried doing the same things with a car.

The result isn’t exactly pretty, but it is an interesting and thought provoking concept. More →
