Apple’s virtual personal assistant Siri started a revolution. Shortly after the feature was released, every other big consumer tech company jumped on the bandwagon and started work on voice-controlled digital assistants of their own. But as we’ve seen in the past in certain areas like mobile display quality, Apple doesn’t always hold onto the lead when it’s the first to debut exciting new technology. Such is the case with Siri, which had fallen far behind some rivals even before Google unveiled Google Assistant earlier this week at Google I/O 2016.
Siri might not be at the head of the pack anymore, but it definitely still has a few tricks up its sleeve. More →

With a reported 373,000 reservations for the Model 3 on the books, Tesla will have to engage in a full-on production sprint in order to meet its updated production deadlines. And given that Tesla has a history of delivering cars much later than promised, not everyone is optimistic that Elon Musk and co. can make good on an unquestionably aggressive production timeline.
Just a few weeks ago, Tesla said that immense demand for the Model 3 compelled them to accelerate their manufacturing plans. Whereas Tesla initially planned to reach a manufacturing capacity of 500,000 cars by 2020, the company now hopes to reach that milestone by 2018. And to help fund such an ambitious production schedule, Tesla just this week announced its intention to raise $1.4 billion in capital via a stock sale.

Because Netflix doesn’t own the global licensing rights to all of the movies and TV shows it carries, a good deal of its programming remains completely unavailable to subscribers outside of certain geographic regions. Indeed, one of the reasons why Netflix is so intent on developing its own original programming is precisely because they don’t have to deal with thorny licensing issues.
Now if you find yourself in the frustrating position of wanting to watch something on Netflix that is otherwise geographically restricted, there’s a new desktop app that can help turn that dream into a reality.

On Sunday, Mars will “come into opposition,” which refers to the point at which the planet is located directly opposite the Sun in the sky. “This means that the Sun, Earth and Mars line up, with Earth sitting in between the Sun and the Red Planet,” explained the ESA. More →
Indiegogo is the lesser-known cousin of Kickstarter, and it has something of a bad reputation for harboring particularly unrealistic crowdfunding campaigns (Lazer Razor, anyone?).
To try to give people more confidence in some campaigns, Indiegogo has partnered with Arrow Electronics, a design and production firm. As reported by TechCrunch, Indiegogo campaigns will get access to expertise to help with the manufacturing and prototyping, and get an official stamp of approval from Indiegogo to help lure in backers.
