It’s been another week in our upside-down world. Here’s a fresh Mallercast:
We discuss the Snapbot vending machine and the end of life as we know it.
Trump is inextricably tied to tech news. The best way to learn more about this is to listen to this Ctrl-Walt-Delete episode entitled Walt and Nilay on Trump and tech.
You can learn more about the creepy, cryptic things Steve Bannon recently said about Asian tech CEOs in this article. Deeply disturbing stuff.
On a lighter note, meet the Snapchat Spectacles Snapbot vending machine. It’s cute:
The machine just shows up at a location one day, and you can pay $130 to buy a pair of glasses. You find where it’s going to be next on this page.
The Musk Zone…
A new Tesla software update will make the Model S P100D go 0 to 60 in 2.4 seconds, instead of 2.5. It will also shave 0.1 sec from the Model X’s 0 to 60 time. It’s Version 8.1 of their software, and it’s due in December.
Model X numbers should also improve by 0.1 sec on 0 to 60 and 1/4 mile
