  • FBI arrests Mexican prosecutor over drug trafficking

    FBI arrests Mexican prosecutor over drug traffickingFBI agents have arrested a Mexican prosecutor suspected of involvement in the production and trafficking of illegal drugs including heroin and cocaine into the United States, authorities said on Wednesday. Edgar Veytia, the attorney general in Mexico's western state of Nayarit, was arrested Monday at the US border in San Diego. "This is a development that we were not expecting," Nayarit Governor Roberto Sandoval said without addressing the alleged high-level crime.



  • Elon Musk explains why drivers won’t care about the Model 3’s bizarre dashboard design

    Elon Musk explains why drivers won’t care about the Model 3’s bizarre dashboard designWhen Tesla unveiled the Model 3 last year, tech and auto observers couldn't help but notice that the car lacked an instrument cluster. Instead, Tesla representatives suggested that drivers would be able to ascertain all the information they needed right from the car's 15-inch tablet located on the center console. Because the design Tesla showed off was so outside the norm, many Tesla enthusiasts began speculating that Tesla must have a cool and advanced design it was planning to show us later on down the line. This speculation was only fueled by coy remarks from Tesla CEO Elon Musk who said via Twitter that everything would all make sense soon enough. Responding to a question about the lack of a dashboard/HUD, Musk last April said that "it will make sense after part 2 of the Model 3 unveil." Of course, part 2 of the Model 3 unveil came and went and we still didn't hear anything about Tesla's plans for the dashboard area. Meanwhile, speculation surrounding Tesla's plans to incorporate a futuristic HUD on the Model 3 began to grow wildly. Looking to keep expectations grounded, Musk over the past few days has come out and said that the Model 3 will not have a HUD and that users won't really care. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/846768171486855169 https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/846768497904369664 Musk later added that drivers don't need an instrument cluster on the dash because "the more autonomous a car is, the less dash info you need." Driving the point home, Musk asked the following question: "How often do you look at the instrument panel when being driven in a taxi?" All that said, the Model 3 dashboard will more or less look like this. While such a design may make sense in a world where cars are fully autonomous, the reality is that many drivers today not only want, but need quick and easy access to pertinent information like range, speed and more. Addressing this, Musk took to Twitter once again where he explained that the final Model 3 design will display such information on the center console. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/847178475970547712

  • Completely insane architects are planning to hang a skyscraper from an asteroid

    Completely insane architects are planning to hang a skyscraper from an asteroidWords like "insane," "crazy," and "nuts" get thrown around a lot — I use them more than my fair share, if I'm being honest — but a New York design group just revealed plans for a new type of skyscraper that really can't be described any other way. Their plan is to construct a huge structure on the surface of an asteroid and, believe it or not, that's probably the most rational part of the proposal. Clouds Architecture Office is the firm that wants to build the massive skyscraper, which it calls Analemma Tower. The structure, which at this point is completely conceptual and likely completely impossible, would require that an asteroid be captured and brought into near-Earth orbit. With anchor points on the asteroid, the building is designed to — this is the part where things go completely off the rails — hang completely upside down, using the asteroid like a gravitational balloon to hold the structure in place above the Earth's surface. The tower would be in eccentric geosynchronous orbit, and would "travel" between hemispheres on a regular daily schedule, and in a figure eight pattern. The architects say the tower would spend much of its time over New York City thanks to its planned trajectory. The building could remain completely disconnected from the surface indefinitely by drawing power from solar panels situated above cloud level. Water would be filtered within the structure in a semi-closed loop, but the tower could also capture its own water while in-flight. As far as traveling to and from the tower, the concept suggests that people could just parachute down to Earth whenever they needed to leave. As for getting back home, the company doesn't seem to have nailed down exactly how that will work, but by the time the tower is actually built we'll probably have teleportation pads, too.
