It will sell for $35,000 — and there are 373,000 preorders.So why do Tesla owners love their vehicles so much?Teslas take their cues from consumer technology, not from auto-industry traditionsCars have been rolling computers for some time now, but the way in which those computers were updated — if they ever were — was extremely old-school.The carmaker routinely updates software over-the-air.The average internal-combustion engine is also good for 300-400 miles per tank, while 200-plus-mile-range EVs are just starting to arrive at prices that the mass market can handle.One caveat here: the electricity that powers Teslas comes mostly from burning coal and natural gas.And in that case Tesla's would still generate zero tailpipe emissions.As energy sources become cleaner in the future, Tesla's will already be doing their part to reduce the greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.The brands is, in a word, incredible.

There was never much doubt that the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S7 would be called the Samsung Galaxy S8, given that Samsung has stuck with this naming scheme since the beginning, but it s now more or less confirmed.The company has filed an application with the USPTO United States Patent and Trademark Office for protection of the Galaxy S8 name, so that s sure to be the name it launches under.What this application doesn t answer is what the larger handset expected to launch alongside the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be called.While a continuation of the Edge range with the Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge might seem the most obvious answer there s suggestion that all Samsung s S8 models will be curved, in which case the Edge moniker would be superfluous.So perhaps it will be called the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus instead?We should know soon, as the two phones are expected to launch sometime in the next few months, possibly as soon as MWC 2017 at the end of February.

The BBC is seeking a piece of the binge-TV-watching pie and wants to move iPlayer from a catch-up service to a full-on streaming one, in the same ilk as Netflix.The transition, which is only in the planning stages, was announced by the BBC s director general Tony Hall in a new year s speech to staff, as iPlayer approaches its tenth birthday.By 2020 he wants the service to be totally reinvented.That means, apparently, a tonne more programming, with plans to double weekly users to 20 million and quadruple hours watched on average at any one time, to two hours.That's tough, but I know we can do it, said Hall.It was suggested this could be achieved by making entire series available before they have been aired, Netflix-style.

Last Friday, Baidu pitted their artificial intelligence against China s best minds in the Season 4 premiere of Zui Qiang Danao 最强大脑 or The Brain in English , a popular weekly show featuring contestants performing feats of mental agility.Seasons 1-3 all featured international competitions between China and visiting teams, leading sometimes to uncomfortable results.However, after Alipay s facial recognition AI Mark lost to Wang Yuheng last year in an unrelated competition, The Brain s producers decided to invite Baidu s Xiaodu on as a contestant.Coming in a cute package that has simulated facial expressions and can respond to questions, Xiaodu is actually just an avatar for Baidu s proprietary AI, Baidu Brain.Interestingly, Baidu s team chose for Xiaodu to compete in areas where computers are particularly weak: face and voice recognition.If it does well, then, perhaps we can say that their AI is robust enough for commercial use.Rather than going the route that Google s DeepMind has gone with their AlphaGo, Baidu has decided to focus on things are simple that we don t need to think, that we do intuitively.Baidu claims that their AI can recognize people even after massive changes, whether that s from makeup, plastic surgery, or aging.Over the past few decades, China s technology sector has been dominated by Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent BAT .But more and more, Baidu seems to be left behind as both Tencent and Alibaba dominate social, e-commerce, and mobile payments.
