Tesla takes advantage of rare tactic on Model Y to battle cabin noise

Tesla electric vehicles are some of the quietest cars on the market due to their lack of combustion engine parts. While electric cars are particularly quiet to those outside of the vehicle, it is not the same scenario for those who sit inside the cabin. Interestingly, some EVs and Hybrid vehicles on the market have excessive cabin noise, which comes from air and wind that bounces off the outside of the car during operation. However, Tesla has worked to combat these noise issues by offering more robust insulation and better liners on doors and windows. Some third-party manufacturers have also developed aftermarket kits for noise-deadening. Tesla has taken it a step further, it seems, by adding a double-paned glass design to recent builds of the Model Y. Reddit member u/OrbitalATK of the r/TeslaMotors subreddit took delivery of a new Model Y yesterday. It seems one of the first things he noticed was the double-paned glass, which hasn’t been on previous builds of the all-electric crossover. “Model Y’s are starting to come with double-pane windows (VIN upper 63K delivered yesterday),” their post said in the subreddit. In October 2019, CEO Elon Musk was confronted about cabin noise issues with the Model 3. A Model 3 owner pointed out that his vehicle’s noise was excessive and had the data to prove it. A test from Bjørn Nyland, a popular Tesla content creator, showed the Model 3 ranked in the bottom 50% of an extensive test to see which vehicles had the best cabin noise ratings. However, Musk and Tesla were aware of the noise and stated that the car’s production models built in October 2019 and after had been equipped with “significantly improved” cabin noise combatants. How Tesla improved the design isn’t known, but higher quality builds and a more robust liner buildout along the windows and doors seem to be the most logical solution. Additionally, Tesla had designed an acoustic tire that specifically was designed to reduce interior cabin noises. Double-paned glass windows are certainly a great strategy to use when combating the sounds that come naturally from wind and road noise. A commonly used tactic in some of the most luxurious cars like Mercedes-Benz Maybachs, it is also used by Ford in some of their more popular cars, like the Explorer and Taurus. Nevertheless, Tesla continues to use customer suggestions to improve the performance of their cars. While the cabin noise issues have been overly stated in the past, there is still plenty of work to be done when talking about avoiding the sounds. However, more strategies are being implemented in Tesla’s cars, but it is unknown if these adjustments will be made to builds of the Model 3.

COVID-19 updates: Dallas County positivity rate spikes

The positivity rate for COVID-19 tests in Dallas County has spiked to 14.2% after consistently holding at a little over 11% for the last couple of weeks. "We must curve the current spike before it becomes a wave that further endangers public health and the economy for the holiday season and up into the spring. We all know what to do; we just need to do it..." tweeted Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins. Saturday, Dallas County health officials reported 778 confirmed cases and one death. The countywide total now stands at 92,845 cases, including 1,098 deaths.

'SNL' has Baldwin's Trump and Carrey's Biden go head to head in the final debate

New York (CNN Business)"Tonight we have a mute button because it was either that or tranquilizer darts." That's how Maya Rudolph -- as moderator Kristen Welker -- kicked off this weekend's "Saturday Night Live." The NBC variety show opened its latest episode with Alec Baldwin's Trump taking on Jim Carrey's Joe Biden in the final presidential debate. "How's this mute button work?" asked Carrey's Biden. "Do I just haul off and slap him in the mouth?" Baldwin's Trump then took questions from the moderator, but confused her as his waitress. "Mr. Trump, I'm the moderator, not your waitress," Rudolph's Welker said. "Okay, just some waters then," Baldwin's Trump responded. He then said that the country was doing "terrific" in terms of coronavirus. "We're rounding the corner. In fact, we've rounded so many corners, we've gone all the way around the block and back to where we started in March," Baldwin's Trump said. Carrey's Biden then starting spouting off responses to his opponent, saying "c'mon, man" and calling the remarks "malarkey." "And we have our first malarkey," Rudolph's Welker said. "If you're playing Biden Bingo at home, take a shot." The debate went back and forth between the two, touching on subjects like when a coronavirus vaccine may show up. "I guarantee the vaccine is coming. Somewhere between two and 700 weeks, ok?" Baldwin's Trump said. Other subjects like health care, race and climate change also came up. "I have a plan. It's called 'Bidencare.' It's like Obamacare, but... Biden," Carrey's Biden said. Rudolph's Welker then posed her final question for the two candidates: "What will you say to Americans who did not vote for you?" "Well, if they didn't vote for me, I guess I'd say, 'hola,'" Baldwin's Trump said. As for Carrey's Biden, he made it clear who he is, compared to Trump. "I'm good old Joe. I'm reliable as a rock," he said. "I got a five-star safety rating. I'm ranked best mid-size in my class by J.D. Power and Associates." Rudolph's Welker then took the stage to say, "Good luck, America!" and call out the show's signature catch phrase: "Live... From New York! It's Saturday night!"

SpaceX stacks Starship SN8 prototype ahead of epic test flight

SpaceX's latest Starship prototype has been stacked in preparation for an ambitious test flight that will take the vehicle far higher than any of its predecessors have gone. SpaceX personnel attached Starship SN8's ("Serial No. 8") nose cone yesterday (Oct. 22) at the company's South Texas site, near the Gulf Coast village of Boca Chica. The vehicle is now in its flight configuration, poised for an uncrewed hop to a planned altitude of about 9 miles (15 kilometers). SN8 has already taken a big step toward that hop, igniting its three Raptor engines in a "static fire" test earlier this week. The vehicle will likely perform a second static fire before lifting off, SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk said via Twitter last month. Starship is the huge, next-gen vehicle that SpaceX is building to get people and payloads to distant destinations such as the moon and Mars, launch satellites to orbit and perform all of the company's other spaceflight needs. The 165-foot-tall (50 meters) Starship vehicle will launch from Earth atop a giant rocket known as Super Heavy, which has yet to fly even in prototype form. Both elements of this spaceflight system will be fully reusable, Musk has said; Super Heavy will return to Earth for vertical landings, and Starship will make multiple trips to and from the moon, Mars or wherever else it has been sent. (Starship will be powerful enough to launch itself off the moon and Mars, but it will need Super Heavy's help to get off Earth.) SpaceX is iterating toward the final Starship design via a series of prototypes, three of which have already made brief test hops. Starships SN5 and SN6, for example, flew about 500 feet (150 m) high in August and September of this year, respectively. Those two prototypes had just one Raptor engine and no nose cone. SN8 is another beast altogether because it's going so much higher; in addition to the nose cone and three Raptors, SN8 sports body flaps to increase stability in flight. (The full-fledged Starship will be powered by six Raptors, and Super Heavy will have about 30 of the engines, Musk has said.) SpaceX aims to get the mature Starship model up and running relatively soon. Starship is in the running to land astronauts on the moon for NASA's Artemis program, and the agency wants the first of these crewed touchdowns to take place in 2024.

Google Fi now sells the Pixel 4a on a subscription plan for $9 a month

Google Fi is now offering a new way to buy phones: a subscription plan. Instead of buying a device outright, you can now sign up for a two-year contract, tack a few bucks onto your monthly bill, and get a phone to go with your service plan. You have one entire device to pick from, the Pixel 4a (not the Pixel 5?). The basic contract is $9 a month for two years ($216 total), which will get you a Pixel 4a (MSRP $349) that is "yours to keep" at the end of the plan. From there, Google imagines you'll keep paying the subscription fee and pick up a new device, with the company proposing that you "upgrade to a new Pixel after 2 years." There's also an optional "device protection plan" for another $6 a month that Google says will "protect against accidental damage, loss or theft (except in NY), and out-of-warranty mechanical breakdown." That $6 a month won't actually get your phone repaired if something happens, however—there are deductibles on top of that. For the Pixel 4a, Google says it's an extra $49 for a screen replacement, $79 for a mechanical breakdown, and $99 for a theft replacement. Google is primarily pitching that you pick up the service plan with the phone, which works out to $15 a month for two years, a total of ($360). Google Fi is Google's MVNO (Mobile virtual network operator) business. It resells cellular service from T-Mobile and US Cellular with a bunch of Google Voice-style features on top, like Web-based texts and voicemail. Fi offers two forms of billing: the first is a pay-as-you-go plan where your monthly bill is $20 for unlimited texts and calls plus $10 per GB of data you use. Google likes to call the billing "$10 per GB of data," but data billing isn't actually in 1GB increments; you'll be billed down to the penny for exactly what you use. The second option is a $70 "unlimited" plan that will get you 22GB of high-speed data per month, the usual free texts and calls, and 100GB of Google cloud storage. With either plan, there are also no extra fees for tethering or usage on additional data-only SIM cards. On the flexible plan, you still just pay for the data you use, and on the unlimited plan, anything goes until you hit your 22GB cap. Google Fi also just keeps working internationally in 200+ countries with no extra fees. ...

Tim Cook’s Aggressive Approach To Force macOS Success

Apple’s radical move from Intel to ARM for its Mac hardware offers many benefits. It also offers many pitfalls that could derail the project. Apple’s traditionally aggressive approach to updates and sunsetting technologies helps here, but there’s one area that it needs to actively push if it wants to guarantee the new macOS on ARM platform flies. To paraphrase James Carville, “It’s the apps, stupid!" MacOS developers are going to be pushed hard to adopt these new technologies and leave the old ways behind. The two-year transition to ARM will cover two updates to macOS, assuming the traditional release schedule is maintained. Big Sur is the initial version, with an 11.1 release in 2021 and an 11.2 release in 2022 - at which point every new Mac will be expected to ship with Apple’s own ARM processors. What if Apple removes some backwards compatibility in 11.1? Assuming that, out of the gate, the first ARM machines will have as much backwards compatibility as possible, there’s no guarantee that this would continue into the future. I expect Apple to let developers know that it will be pulling up the ladder at a rapid pace Why? It wants developers to quickly move over to ARM development. It wants apps ported over to run natively on macOS on ARM as quickly as possible, which will offer a smoother experience and increased battery life for users, It wants to create a developer ecosystem of (mostly) write-once run-in-three-places (iOS, iPadOS, and macOS) that keeps everything and everyone inside Apple’s own cloud. ...

iPhone marketing exec talks iPhone 12 with 5G, MagSafe, and more in new interview

As the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro make their way to customers around the world, Apple’s VP of iPhone product marketing Kaiann Drance recently joined the Rich On Tech show with Rich DeMuro for an interview. During the show, Drance talked in-depth about the iPhone 12, MagSafe accessories, and more. Regarding the iPhone 12’s support for 5G, Drance explained how Apple is working to balance battery life concerns with the faster cellular connection: We are able to make a bunch of software optimizations throughout the entire system to make battery life even better. On top of that we added a new feature called “Smart Data mode” that will allow you to manage your 5G usage and battery life a bit better, so you can use 5G speeds when it really matters. Drance also touched Apple’s decision to switch to including USB-C to Lightning cables in the box this year. DeMuro questioned Apple’s decision to switch from USB-A to USB-C this year, while also dropping the included charging brick altogether. Drance explained that USB-C is faster and more modern, and that if you have a Mac or an iPad or many other consumer technology products, you likely already have a USB-C charing brick. She also pointed out that the old USB-A to Lightning cables still work perfectly. Regarding the new MagSafe accessories, DeMuro asked about the effect the magnetization could have on credit cards with magnetic stripes. Drance pointed out that credit cards should be ok, but the thing to watch for is single-use cards such as hotel room keys. “What you do want to just watch out for is those single-use types of cards like the hotel cards,” she explained. “you might not want to put that right against it.” Finally, Drance addressed what shoppers should expect if they visit an Apple Store as a walk-in visitor this iPhone launch season. This year, Drance says that if you show up as a walk-in, you’ll likely get an appointment to come back at a later time — but if you are able to visit that same day, you can expect to wait longer than usual due to social distancing guidelines. You can learn more about Apple’s retail strategy in our full guide right here.

How Hoop hit #2 with its Tinder for Snapchat

Snapchat’s developer platform is blowing up as a gateway to teen social app users. Hoop is the latest Snap Kit blockbuster, rocketing to No. 2 on the overall App Store charts this month with its Tinder -esque swiping interface for discovering people and asking to message with them over Snapchat. Within a week of going viral, unfunded French startup Dazz saw Hoop score 2.5 million downloads. The fact that such a dumbfoundingly simple and already ubiquitous style of app was able to climb the charts so fast demonstrates the potential of Snap Kit to drive user lock-in for Snapchat. Because the developer platform lets other apps piggyback on its login system and Bitmoji avatars, it creates new reasons for users to set up a Snapchat account and keep using it. It’s the same strategy that made Facebook an entrenched part of the internet, but this time it’s for a younger crowd. In the first-ever interview about Hoop, Dazz’s 26-year-old co-founders Lucas Gervais and Alexi Pourret reveal that the idea came from watching user patterns in their previous experiment on the Snap Kit platform. They built an app called Dazz in 2018 that let users create polls and get anonymous answers from friends, but they noticed their 250,000 users “always ended up adding each other on Snap. So we decided to create Hoop, the app to make new Snap friends,” Gervais tells me. Gervais and Pourret have been friends since age two, growing up in small town in France. They met their two developers in high school, and are now marketing students at university. With Hoop, they say the goal was to “meet everyone’s needs, from connecting people from different cultures to helping lonely people to feel better to simply growing your Snapchat community.” ...

Nvidia GeForce Now Finally on Beta; What Makes it Stand Out Over Stadia?

Nvidia's big game-streaming competitor to Google Stadia and Microsoft Project xCloud, GeForce Now, is officially out of beta today and is available for users in Europe and North America. GeForce Now lets you play PC video games, with minimum fuss, on any PC, MacOS, or Android device. Want to play Overwatch to your Samsung cellphone or Red Dead Redemption 2 for your MacBook Air? The idea is, you log in and go. GeForce Now vs. Competitors: What's the Difference? Some people ask this question: What makes GeForce Now stand out from its other game-streaming competitors? GeForce Now is a service that connects into your existing game stores accounts such as Blizzard, Epic, GoG, and Steam. So, if the service ever dies, you'll still have your games kept-though you could lose saves in case you don't have cloud saves enabled for every respective carrier. This updated service now feels more stable compared to Stadia and Project xCloud, which both have a fewer game selection and require specific controllers. Nvidia's GeForce Now has a significantly more massive games library than Google's Stadia. Microsoft's Project xCloud game streaming app could also make the same claim. ALSO READ: All Xbox Games Will Be Playable On xCloud Streaming Service - Yes, All Generations Of Xbox Brief History of Ndivia's GeForce Now However, GeForce Now has been "a little inconsistent." A similar provider called GeForce Now allowed you to play a selection of video games offered by using Nvidia or streamed without delay out of your PC. The service was launched as Nvidia Grid lower back in 2013. The game-streaming application turned into rebranded GeForce Now in 2015, and the beta became available on Nvidia's Android set-top box, the Nvidia Shield. A new provider was released into beta in 2017 with an identical name. The users could play any game they have in other PC gaming stores instead of playing a small selection of games offered by Nvidia. GeForce Now Allows Cross-Playing with PC, Mac, Chromebooks, Android Smartphones, Nvidia shield. The GeForce Now has progressed over the years as the current version no longer has connectivity issues. You could smoothly play with your games through GeForce Now by log in to your account. You will be able to play games on a wide variety of devices - including mobile devices, the Nvidia Shield media streaming device for TVs, Macs, and PCs. However, Nvidia has not mentioned whether GeForce Now will work with Apple iPhones. GeForce Now gamers, unlike other game streaming applications, are not limited to other players who are also playing games on GeForce Now. For example, the users could be playing a game on GeForce Now while playing against someone running a game locally on their PC. ...

Tesla CEO Elon Musk teases possible new Texas gigafactory

Tesla has been on a tear lately, and it looks like CEO Elon Musk is trying to think of new ways to spend some money. Tonight he dropped a hint that, in addition to current gigafactory projects in China and Germany, Tesla is considering one in Texas. Tesla’s Shanghai gigafactory is already up and running with a current capacity of 150,000 vehicles per year. Tesla plans to expand it more this year, including adding local Model Y production for the China market. And the purchase contract has been signed on Tesla’s gigafactory in Germany, with construction beginning on access roads, despite some local protests. Tesla has also announced plans to open design centers in both Germany and China. Tesla’s current design center is in Hawthorne, California. Finally, Tesla has another factory in Buffalo, New York. This factory is mainly focused on “Tesla Energy” products, and was part of Tesla’s SolarCity merger. The original gigafactory got that name to denote its massive size. “Giga” is the metric prefix for “billion,” and it seemed that Tesla wanted to signify that their battery factory would reach the capacity to produce a billion cells. Tesla’s first gigafactory in Nevada is one of the largest buildings in the world by floor area and footprint. The gigafactory name took off, and now Tesla is just calling everything a gigafactory, whether it be for batteries or otherwise. For a while Tesla named all these factories sequentially — gigafactory 1, 2, 3, 4. But that started to get confusing as Tesla added more factories, so Tesla is now using the naming convention “Giga (area).” So these have been renamed Giga Nevada, Giga New York, Giga Shanghai, and Giga Berlin. Now those four might get another addition in Giga Texas. Tesla CEO Elon Musk put up a poll today, asking simply, “Giga Texas?” As of press time, people seem pretty excited about the idea: Texas has been in Musk’s thoughts recently. On Monday, he announced an AI hackathon amid a recruiting effort for Tesla’s autopilot team, stating that Tesla is also looking for “world-class” chip designers to join Tesla’s team in Palo Alto, California, or Austin. The Texas capital has become quite a tech hub recently, attracting a lot of young tech talent who are looking for somewhere to get away from Silicon Valley’s insanely high cost of living. While Musk didn’t specify where Giga Texas would be, we could imagine that somewhere near Austin would work well, to take advantage of the growing tech industry there. Musk also did not specify what products would be made in Texas (beyond the note about chip designers), so we’ll have to wait for more news on that. That said, Texas also currently bans Tesla from selling their cars in the state, and even recently tried to stop the company from even servicing cars in-state. That effort thankfully failed, but Texas has not yet rolled out the welcome mat for Tesla. We’ll see if that changes with this talk of a possible factory.

WATCH | This is How 99 Phones Could Change Traffic Flow in Google Maps

Google Maps has modified how people navigate the world. However, Google's influence is merely going beyond just locating and navigating. A whole flood of latest businesses, experiences, and ideas have grown up around the ability to zoom and pan around only a virtual version of a map. However, with incredible power comes great responsibility. One "hack" showed how clear it turned into play Google's system and altered the flow. Although a few would possibly argue that Waze, which is also owned by way of Google now, does a higher job at navigating roads and displaying traffic information, Google Maps has, over time, incorporating a number of those into its very own app. The innovation enables human beings to catch up without having to switch between apps for specific information. German used 99 mobile phones to hack Google Maps Simon Weckert currently took gain of the opportunity with a "hack" - as he calls it - for Google Maps. To accomplish this, he loaded 99 smartphones right into a wagon and turned all of them onto Maps navigation. As he walks down an avenue, Google acknowledges the high awareness of "users" and the slow-moving "site visitors" and marks that street as having bad site visitors. Somewhat hilariously, this would virtually cause other drivers in the place using Maps to be rerouted to avoid the "visitors" resulting from this otherwise innocent prank. Weckert even took the collection of smartphones proper outside of Google's Berlin places of work to create the virtual visitors' jam.

Hands-On With Salt's Apple TV Remote Replacement

The Apple TV 4K is a fantastic little set-top box that has an easy-to-use interface, an App Store, and options to watch all kinds of content, but there's one major flaw with the device - the Siri Remote. Apple unveiled its ¿Siri¿ (or ¿Apple TV¿) Remote with touch surface in 2015 alongside the fourth-generation ¿Apple TV¿, and it's never been a particularly popular accessory. With that in mind, Swiss company Salt created an alternative ¿Apple TV¿ Remote, which we managed to get our hands on. Salt is a Swiss telecommunications company that offers the ¿Apple TV¿ 4K in a broadband TV bundle for its customers. There's no way to order this remote in the United States or countries other than Switzerland - it's designed only for Salt customers. According to Salt, the Salt Remote was designed in close collaboration with Apple after the Salt TV customer base complained about the poor usability of the default remote that comes with the ¿Apple TV¿. Available for just under 20 Swiss francs, the Salt Remote looks more like a traditional remote than Apple's version, and it's made from a simple black plastic with buttons for controlling multiple functions. It is designed to connect to the ¿Apple TV¿ out of the box and requires no pairing to set up. It's both wider and longer than the ¿Siri¿ Remote, so it's harder to lose, which is probably a good thing for most people given how easy it is to misplace the ¿Siri¿ Remote. ...
