Tesla CEO Pay Fight

Ever since Elon Musk pay package was thrown out by a judge in January the CEO has been doing all that he can do to get his pay reinstated and now after all his work shareholders are having second thoughts and they are justified since the company no longer is performing like it once was.

With the EV market looking for cheaper alternatives the CEO has been diverting important resources elsewhere. Maybe it's time for both parties to go their separate ways and for Must to start focusing on the company he believe's he wants to work for. 

Being a CEO requires staying focus and when you manage several companies the mindset is just not going to be there for all of them.

Tesla Cybertruck Treat

If you are thinking of buying a Cybertruck, here is some information you should know before hand which is how big the vehicle stands out and where are you going to park it.

A user apparently purchased a Cybertruck when he had a house and then when the vehicle arrived he downsized to an apartment and now the vehicle is causing him a headache when it comes to parking.

Now anyone would consider with a situation like this all you need to do is get rid of the car but here is the kicker. The user cannot sell the car because of the Tesla agreement that they have to keep the car for at least a year.  

So my advice to the user is sit back put cones all around the car when you park and after a year just get rid of this hudge piece of junk.

Apple Password Manager

Apple looks like it's building a dedicated Password application for iPhone and Mac and it might just make it difficult for third party applications to play friendly across it's platform.
It's no surprise that they want to have some say and control of their devices and this just makes it easier for the company to take control of your passwords.

iOS Updates

If you have an iPhone note this is how long Apple will provide updates to make sure the phone is secure. For most it's basically just five years and it really depends on the phone you have. So if you paid over one grand you have three years to stay secure. So overall Apple is no longer giving you the best for your buck and you might want to look elsewhere when it comes to saving money. 

It's kind of sad hearing the new Apple information but at least you have other options.

AWS & Microsoft Cloud Domination

It looks like dominating the cloud is causing some countries to be concerned about the monopoly play among these two rivals. Besides being on top, these two giant companies are way ahead of their competitors and it's looks like it's can be like that for quite sometime.

In the meanwhile these two companies should start strategizing to practice fair business practices with other providers so that they do not come up under the radar that their company is a monopoly.

EL Salvador BTC Treasury

It looks like El Salvador is becoming the first country to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tneder and it's launched a Bitcoin treasury holding website to monitor the countries reserves.

Our old system of currency has been long overdue for a drastic make over and crypto is definitely the industrial revolution of currency. In the long run the countries that refuse not to adopt in time are going to be left behind. 

Wheter you like it or not, there is no stopping this move and the only question you should be asking is when are you going to adapt.

Tesla Failing

It's no surprise that this EV company is failing terribly and it's partialy because nothing has really changed since 2013 besides the software.

Now they should be mastering other areas and be ahead of the game when compared to other EV companies and it looks like the company has been to comfortable.

Now like all technology, if you don't do anything new every few years, the chances that consumers going to continue buying your product is going to be slim.

So my advice to Telsa is this, wake up and get with the program.

TikTok Ban Reason

Here is an article to clear the real reason why the government wants to ban TikTok all together. Let's just say there is 14.7 Billion reason for this.

TikTok is not just a social media company but a bigger department store similar to Amazon.com and there is no telling how fast and powerful they will become when more subscribers are added.

Neuralink Info

It's a futuristic idea with a high risk when you talk about implanting a chip to a human brain. Kind of reminds me of a hollywood movie called "The Lawnmover Man" with Pierce Brosnan. 

The sifi movie had similar futuristic ideas similar to what Neuralink is doing.

Now it's beyond me who would want to risk brain damage but Elon's goal is not to to save paralyzed volunteers but somehow incorporate it with AI and this is when it get's scary.

Now I already know how the movie ends and maybe you too should watch the movie too.

HP recently started it's printer rentals and if you want them to manage the hardware and ink supplies it might be a service that you are looking for but here is the catch.

Their privacy is a nightmare and your personal data could be at risk. The more you read into the service the more concerns you should have about your privacy.

So I would caution users who subscribe to read their contract carefully and understand that whatever you are going to print is going to be in my terms public domain.

It looks like a list of vendors who sell video doorbells can easily be hacked. And those home owners who were trying to protect their homes now have another threat to worry about. 

I would suggest that users be very cautious when buying security devices for your home.

HughesNet Loss

It's no secret that satellite provider HughesNet is losing subcribers with the popularity of Starlink. I guess customers are starting to piece together old technology with new technology and Starlink does make a difference when it comes to download speeds. Take a look at the comparision and see who is better.

Now if HughesNet does not catch up, it's definitely going to go under very quickly.

Project Kuiper

It's looks like Starlink is not the only company trying to connect the entire world via broadband. Amazon is currently testing hundreds of prototype dishes to do the same.

Hopefully both companies will be smart enought to form an alliance to connect the world and then figure out how to compete against each other. You can accomplish more and bring down the costs with unity.

Apple Car Failure Update

The truth comes out from former Apple employee's who worked on the Apple Car and why the research and developement team failed to deliver.

Besides going to four team leaders and different ideas of what the car should be, the project looks like it was going in circles on what type of vehicle it should be.

It's no wonder Apple dumped the project all together. Maybe as time passes on, some of it's ideas can be incorporated into their products. Only time will tell.

Lenovo Transparent Laptop

All that I can say is that it's out there and it's going to be a beauty to see these devices perform in the real world with AI. I feel like your it's not going to be that great security wise since everyone can see what you are doing but I am amazed to see what other manufactures are going to do now that this has come out.

Imagine living in a world where your access is granted by your face, how precious that can be.

Apple EV Cancellation

It looks like after going back and forth Apple is scapping for now it's autonomous electric car. It's no surprise that building something like this takes massive expertise to get to the end result. 

This is not for everyone and maybe it's just better to look into some other type of project that will benefit them better.

ChatGPT Tax Filing No No

I never even thought about this but with AI hitting all types of markets it's no surprise someone would want to try ChatGPT to do their taxes.

Along with that here are some great examples why not to do that and first most is hackers. It's right now the wild west for AI and ChatGPT is just not ready to safe guard your information.

So before you decide to use ChatGPT for your personal finance, read this.

No rice on iPhones

A while back some users mentioned that if your iPhone was to get wet your best bet was to use rice to save the phone. Now they are saying that this might not be a good idea.

Win 11 Update News

It looks like news is getting out that Windows 11 users who upgrade to version 24H2 coming in October will not be happy if they do the upgrade. It's said that it will not boot on old computers.

Let's just say it's just another way for Microsoft to force users to buy a new computer.

CyberTruck Flaw

It looks like Telsa's new Cybertruck has a flaw and it's becoming very popular among most of it's current owners. It looks like the truck outer body is causing stains on the vehicle.

It's definitely not a good sign for the EV car manufacture and if the company does not resolve this quickly I am almost certain that consumers will look elsewhere when it's time to purchasing a new EV.

Let's see how the stains play out as more adopters get a hold of their new delivery vehicles.

Should I Shutdown

My answer will always be yes, unless you a savvy technician who always feels the need to always be connected and continue where they left off every hour of the day.

So if you are not on the computer on every hour of the day, then I would suggest you just shut it down to save power and prevent mishaps. It's pointless leaving the device on if you tend not to use it daily. 

2/26/24

Norway EV adoption

I believe that we have it all wrong when it comes to EV adoption and Norway is good proof of this. Ever since the early 90's this country has been doing almost everything possible to start EV adoption like offerring no taxes on zero emission vehicles, free parking, use of bus lanes and no tolls. 

Besides users buying more EVs, gas pumps and parking meters are being upgraded by chargers. It's the ultimate auto revolution occurring quickly in this country and if anyone want's to make a difference creating incentives is the key to adoption. 

I strongly believe Norway will achieve it's goal and be a major role model for other countries to follow. 

2/25/24

iOS iMessage Update

It looks like Apple is doing a massive security update to it's messaging software with advanced security. This is definitely going to secure all users messages moving forward and it's going to be harder to decrypt messages if they get into the wrong hands.

I wonder if the federal government is happy about this new update? 

For those that do not know, the feds just a few years ago were pleading with Apple to give them access to their software and Apple refused.

At&t Outage

At&t recent outage was not a cyberattack but as they say a technical error but an application and execution of an incorrect process.

Canada Bans Flipper

It was only a matter of time before the Flipper would be banned and I can see this powerful tool definitely causing security problems where ever you go, but this is still a remidial device compared to other devices that consumers should be concerned with. 

Instead Canada should enforced their car manufactures to safe guard consumer goods. 

2/21/24

X Fake Online Traffic

Recently X aka Twitter reported that it's users post and video's were rising, and after review from a third party it looks like it was fake. 

Information like this is no surprise from a company that's still sinking and user use is jumping ship. But it's nothing new in the world of Elon Musk.

I would guess now would be a good time to rehire the thousands of employee's that he laid off. 

2/20/24

MS Publisher Support End Date

It looks like Microsoft if pulling the plug for support to Publisher in 2026 and plans on integrating the software to it's other office applications. 

Microsoft is definitley slimlining it's software and in the future you are going to see more of this happening to it's other main products as well. It makes sense, saves space and will be easier to use.

Microsoft was thought by many that it would be released this year a new OS running Windows 12 but this looks like it's not the case and instead they are just going to do a major big overhaul in the Windows 11 24H2 update with more AI functions. 

I guess we are just going to have to wait another year to hear what they will be ready to roll out Windows 12.

Vision Pro Returns

After all the hype on Apple Vision Pro, owners are now returning back their devices and waiting for their refunds. It looks like though even some users were impressed with the device, they are not still comfortable wanting to keep them that long to justify their current costs.

It looks like it's going to maybe take several generations of upgrades for the devices to justify their net worth. I guess it's still not a bad outcome for the development of this new technology.

Ever since Elon Musk purchased Twitter it's been quite a disaster for the so called X aka Twitter. I doubt the company will ever recover and he will be lucky if he can some capital out of the company before it goes under.

Now Bluesky has a big shot on competing with X and shifting it's users from one platform to another. They just need to show their users that's things are better on their end.
