Tesla’s P85D Will Get Even Faster Thanks To A Software Update

Tesla’s P85D is already fast. Really, really fast. Push the button to put the car into “Insane” mode (really — that’s what it’s called) and it’ll do 0-60 in 3.2 seconds. Now it’s about to get even faster. And get this: It’s getting faster because of an over the air software update. Musk confirmed the change in a tweet: Tesla P85D 0 to 60mph acceleration will improve by ~0.1 sec soon via over-the-air software update to inverter algorithm — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 29, 2015 0.1 seconds might not seem like a lot — but when you get down into these time ranges, every tenth of a second is monumental. More importantly, just think about that for a second: You buy a car. The engineers who made the car realize they can tweak some parameters of the car and make it better. Next time you get in your car, it’s faster. No going to the dealership for an update, no popping the hood and swapping parts — it’s just faster. Because it can be. Imagine getting into your car and having it say “Oh! Hey. I’m faster now than I was yesterday. You’re welcome!” Because that’s what’s happening. Musk also noted that the P85 (the single motor version, versus the P85D’s two) will be seeing an acceleration improvement, albeit not as significant. Article source:...

Snapchat Outgrows The Friend Zone

Discover is Snapchat’s big new play in the world of media. It’s a special tab in the app powered by content publishers like ESPN, Yahoo, etc., offering daily long-form content with videos, articles and, of course, advertisements. Brands can buy advertisements against these Discover “Editions,” which play every three or four swipes. It’s really not all that bad. It’s what we’ve grown accustomed to. It feels like a magazine that you would read in the future. But with the launch of Discover, one small piece of the app disappeared. Best Friends is gone. This disappearance is small, but it signifies something bigger in the grand scheme of Snapchat’s evolution. One For All Snapchat launched as a personal messenger, where people were supposed to “be themselves,” and then opened up the potential for it to become a broadcast tool, where people could become “Snapchat stars.” Some are artists and some are comedians. Some are just random, everyday people, and some are celebrities. Focus shifted from creation to consumption. And now, Snapchat has gone beyond even that. Snapchat is now a messenger, a social network and a media network, all in one. Sounds good, right? The “unbundle” doctrine hasn’t necessarily played well for companies in the past, especially in Facebook’s case, and Snapchat has become a place where users can do anything. They don’t need a full inbox to check the...
