tesla's loss grows as elon musk claims customers are confused by model 3 name


elon musk used his quarterly conference call with analysts wednesday to talk about his sex problem. or, more precisely, his s3x problem.he also tried to assure investors, after tesla reported a deepening loss for the first quarter. its stock fell sharply on the day.musk said the midmarket model 3 is on track to begin initial production in july. and he fretted about confusion over the model 3 name and his regrets about trying to be too cute with it.tesla now sells two luxury cars, the model s and the model x. musk wanted to call the midmarket car the model e.s-e-x. get it? and there’s the upcoming model y.but ford laid previous claim to the designation, and musk went with 3, which sort of looks like a backward e, to take its place.“the joke’s on me because it’s caused confusion in the marke






'69 shelby still smokin' hot


when the ford mustang was introduced in 1964, it was an immediate winner, but it wasn’t a performance car.three engines were available: a 101-horsepower, 170-cubic-inch straight six cylinder; a 164-horsepower, 260-cubic-inch v-8; and a 210-horsepower, 289-cubic-inch v-8 engine. with its styling so popular, ford sought to make it a performance vehicle in addition to just a “sporty” car. they needed something to compete with the chevrolet corvette. ford motor co. contacted carroll shelby.this car started out as a ford mustang, but there’s no ford identification on this edition’s car and it is officially registered with the california dmv as a 1969 shelby gt350h. shelby america took the partially built mustang and created the shelby gt350. the front fenders, trunk lid and hood, along with oth

tesla, bmw electrics fall short of highest crash-test rating


detroit — two luxury electric vehicles — the tesla model s and the bmw i3 — fell short of getting the highest safety ratings in new crash tests by the insurance industry.the insurance institute for highway safety tested 2017 models of both vehicles. neither earned the institute’s “top safety pick” award, which is given to vehicles that get the highest rating in five different crash tests and offer a crash-prevention system with automatic braking. to get a highest “top safety pick-plus” designation, vehicles must meet all of those criteria and have good headlights.in the 2017 model year, 38 vehicles have won the “top safety pick-plus” designation, including two plug-in hybrids: the toyota prius prime and the chevrolet volt. but no all-electric vehicles are on the list. the institute hasn’t

elon musk’s desire for s-e-x is causing problems for tesla inc.the chief executive of the silicon valley auto maker thought it would be funny for the names of his vehicle models to spell out something cool. he had the model s sedan and model x sport-utility vehicle. but when it came to naming a new, cheaper car, the model e, ford motor co. blocked tesla over trademark issues. so he instead went with model 3, which is essentially a...






tesla model 3 will get a performance version next year


the tesla model 3 will eventually get a more performance-oriented option, which tesla ceo elon musk says we can probably expect in around a year or so. the model 3 tuned for better performance might inherit more of the muscle of the model s, in a smaller, lighter package, but musk says not to expect it to ever top the model s on acceleration, since the original tesla electric luxury sedan will always be able to accommodate a larger battery.a performance 3 arriving after the more modest model 3 might strike some early pre-order customers the wrong way, if they were hoping to max out the specs on their vehicles with available options. but we still don’t know much about what kind of offers those who reserved their place in line will be able to choose from when it comes time to finish out thei






elon musk tweets model 3 teaser and clears up misconceptions about tesla's lates


elon musktweeted a teaser video of a freshly manufactured tesla model 3, the mass-market electric sedan due for sale in limited numbers later this year.for tesla, the model 3 is a make-or-break proposition. the renewable energy company has enjoyed much success with its luxury-priced model s and model x.the model 3, meanwhile, is a relatively affordable mass-market entry into the electric car market, with a base price expected at $35,000 to $40,000. by the end of 2018, musk has pledged, the company will be churning out hundreds of thousands of them.tesla’s chief executive also used twitter to clear up any confusion about what the model 3 is meant to be."am noticing that many people think model 3 is the ‘next version’ of a tesla, like iphone 2 vs 3. this is not true," musk tweeted."model 3 i

venus optics announces spec and price for 7.5mm f2 micro four thirds lens: digit


chinese optical manufacturer anhui changgeng optical technology company limited, or venus optics, has released more details of a forth-coming lens it claims will be the widest rectilinear f2 for the micro four thirds system. the laowa 7.5mm f2 mft was first seen at photokina last year, and will offer the 110° angle of view we’d expect from a 15mm lens on a full-frame camera and will be available in two versions – a standard model that will weigh 200g / 7oz and a lightweight model that will tip the scales at 150g / 5.3oz.both versions of the lens will feature 13 elements in 9 groups and will use a pair of aspheric elements and three in extra-low dispersion glass. the company has stopped short of using the ‘zero-d’ designation it applies to the laowa 12mm f2.8 and its previously announced 15

tesla is discontinuing its model s 60 and model s 60d


tesla is doing away with its most accessible car. late last week, tesla began emailing folks who had previously expressed interest in the model s 60 and 60d, noting that the least expensive members of the tesla family will soon be discontinued. while the tesla model 3 will be cheaper when it finally becomes available, starting at $35,000, the model s 60 and 60d were otherwise the most affordable tesla cars, starting at $68,000. but no longer — the last day to order such vehicles will be april 16 of this year, so if you’re interested, you’d better make a move within the next month.both the discontinued models had 75 kwh battery packs that were software-locked to 60 kwh. buyers were able to access the extra 15 kwh by choosing to update their software (for a fee) after making their initial ca






musk cites model x design thinking “mistake” informing model y plan


during a tesla shareholder press conference on tuesday, ceo elon musk talked a bit more about the company’s plans around the upcoming model y crossover/small suv vehicle. the company “made a mistake in trying to derive the model x from the model y platform,” musk noted, since it’s clear now it should focus on designing “an suv the way it’s meant to be designed.”the model x was like a “faberge egg,” musk said at the meeting, in that it’s a very complex creation with far too many configuration options. he noted that the company got “too excited” about the vehicle, and should’ve versioned more of the options out instead of front-loading them all at launch. that informed the much more modest configuration options that will launch with the model 3 initially.there will also be a new plant for th

tesla model s: news, rumors, specs, everything we know


the tesla model 3 may be the talk of the town, but in the car world, it’s important to know where you came from. tesla debuted the model s luxury sedan back in 2012, and without that vehicle’s success, there would be no model 3 or model x — and the brand’s rumored pickup truck would never get off the ground.more: tesla makes changes to encourage motorists to use autopilot properlyin many ways, the model s is the frontman of a generation, the face of a movement. with its special combination of insane electric performance, undeniable style, and forward-thinking tech, the model s helped make electric vehicles seem normal, while remaining unique enough to carve out a niche for itself. it’s an imperfect and divisive machine, but i think we can all agree it’s been an incredibly important one as

national monument status is not enough to protect bears ears


i’m not a native-born utahn, but i came here 40 years ago and made it my home. one of my first views of this remarkable land was of the bears ears area of southern utah. it is sacred territory to me.had i not lived here all these decades but simply viewed the recent debate over the bears ears from afar, i’d probably be an enthusiastic supporter of its recent designation as a national monument. but i’ve been involved in these kinds of issues for decades, and the preservation of the bears ears is far more complicated than the monument’s architects will admit. there is a better way to protect the bears ears than its new monument designation, and a more honest way to still empower the native americans who deserve an integral role in protecting this landscape’s future.environmentalists declared

we could find out more about the mysterious tesla ‘model y’ next week


tesla has long teased a model y, or fourth production car for its lineup, which will be another suv, this time a compact likely with a more attractive and generally palatable price point. the model y fits with tesla’s schoolyard humor name scheme, bringing the “s3x” model lineup to its natural, “s3xy” conclusion. now, it looks like we could learn more about the y shortly.while musk replied publicly to a tweet from a fan that we’re not likely to see a y for “a few years” yet, musk noted in a direct message to ars technica (via elecktrek) that “next week” is when we can expect to here more about a prospective fourth model.that’s not much to go on, but paired with his acknowledgement that a “y” is an inevitability, if only because of his commitment to the daddest joke of all time.musk also br






elon musk reveals more details about the model y crossover


tesla is building a new vehicle platform for its upcoming crossover vehicle. instead of repurposing the underpinnings of the model 3 or model s, tesla is building something completely new for the model y. this comes from elon musk speaking on the company’s investor call. building a new platform takes time; musk said the model y is expected to hit assembly lines in 2020, but could be as early as 2019. and yes, with the model y, tesla’s model line will look like this: s, 3, x, y.building a new platform is a long game for auto manufacturers. it allows for vehicles to share key components, thus improving margins and manufacturing costs when applied to more vehicles. like most auto makers, tesla already does this. the tesla model x suv is built on the model s platform. by building another platf






how to easily find out your motherboard's model in windows


if you want to update system-related drivers, or want to purchase a new piece of hardware, you’ll also want to know what model of motherboard is inside your computer. when it comes to remembering the models of our processors and graphics cards, it’s usually a little easier, mostly because we would have purchased the computer or components around a specific need that we wanted to fill. motherboard models, however, are far easier to forget. even worse, it’s possible to purchase a pc and have zero clue as to what the motherboard’s model is!of course, finding out what model your motherboard is can be as simple as opening your case up, as motherboards have their model name printed somewhere on them. however, this isn’t always the easiest option; some users are shy about opening their case, some






tesla’s model x misses out on nation’s suv hunger


not everything elon musk touches has been a runaway sales success.while tesla’s model s has been a hit and thousands lined up to order the upcoming model 3 sedan, the model x sport utility vehicle hasn’t met the chief executive officer’s expectations. model x deliveries have yet to keep pace with the model s, as musk predicted, and u.s. registrations of the suv have slipped the last two quarters, according to ihs markit.musk has chalked up challenges with the model x to making the vehicle too complicated. features including the double-hinged falcon-wing doors have constrained production and contributed to a costly $82,500 starting price. for tesla, the lack of cheaper and easier-to-produce configurations has meant missing out on roaring demand amid america’s suv boom.“luxury suvs are reall






state officials tell dhs to leave election security to them


six weeks after the u.s. department of homeland security underscored the importance of election computers and physical systems by designating them “critical infrastructure,” a group representing the nation’s secretaries of state voted to oppose the federal appellation. in its winter meeting, the national association of secretaries of state (nass) adopted a resolution opposing the “critical infrastructure” designation by the u.s. department of homeland security. the rebuke of the federal agency was partly due to concerns of overreaching by the federal government and because the agency had refused to provide adequate information on the impact that the designation would have on the states, according to kay stimson, spokeswoman for the national association of secretaries of state (nass). “we h

the tivoli audio model one digital has retro charm, modern failures


the tivoli audio model one digital packs modern features in a retro design. inside the gorgeous wood box are most of the features now standard in tabletop radios: bluetooth connectivity, access to streaming services, color display. but the $299 model one digital is lacking. sure, it looks great, but suffers from a painful and dated user experience. i tried to talk to the radio, and it just sat there, ignoring me, like a tabletop top radio from 60 years ago.tivoli started out with the model one in 2000. henry kloss designed the original and it has all the trademarks of his hand with large analog dials that, through a clever design, allowed users to precisely tune the radio without needing a ham radio merit badge. when locked onto a station, the model one’s sound is full and warm. the model






justices won't hear challenge over alaska polar bear habitat


washington — the supreme court won't hear an appeal from alaska and oil and gas industry groups protesting the government's designation of more than 187,000 square miles in the state as critical habitat for threatened polar bears.the justice on monday left in place an appeals court ruling that said the u.s. fish and wildlife service followed the law when it authorized the massive habitat in a coastal area larger than the state of california.alaska officials, the american petroleum institute and others said the designation was too extensive and accused the agency over overreaching.a federal judge had rejected the plan, saying the agency had not shown that certain areas on land and barrier islands were appropriate for polar bear dens. but a federal appeals court overturned that ruling last y






moto z2 play passes through tenaa - barely 6mm thick, just 2,820mah battery


last year's moto z play gathered much praise at the office for a lot of things, among them its great battery life. well, its successor may be a different story, if the numbers posted on tenaa's website are correct.the chinese regulator has certified a motorola device with xt1710-08 internal designation, which by the looks of it is none other than the moto z2 play. there won't be much playing done on a single charge though, judging from the listed 2,820mah battery capacity. the first-gen moto z play had 3,510mah worth of juice at its disposal, and initial rumors pointed towards a 3,000mah power pack for the moto z2 play, but it's not even getting that, apparently.now, we don't know what's at play here (if you'll forgive us the horrible pun) - motorola may have more motomod batteries planned






reviving debate over bears ears national monument also revives racial tension in


the debate over the best use of these vast canyonlands is not just about states’ rights or who should control public land. nor is it only about environmental protection or the preservation of native american culture.it is also about the people who have lived alongside each other in this remote corner of southeastern utah for decades — and the tension and distrust that continues to divide them.“i don’t like to degrade it down to race, but i think a lot of this comes down to that,” said ben brewer, who is white and grew up in the town of blanding. “it’s a heated issue here, for sure.”this week, as interior secretary ryan zinke conducts a “listening tour” across the region to decide whether to reverse the designation of bears ears national monument or reduce its size from the 1.35 million acr






female officers in high demand at st. paul police department


allison rogers knew she wanted to be a police officer, but others had their concerns: did she consider teaching instead? had she seen the most recent news articles about officers who were killed in the line of duty?so rogers pursued a degree in corrections instead.“i had a lot of people telling me i wouldn’t want to be in the profession,” said rogers. “more out of fear than that it wasn’t a noble profession. i’m a pretty small … i’m 5-foot-1. with my boots, i’m 5-3.”in her second year at minnesota state university, mankato, she gained the confidence to switch tracks to law enforcement after speaking with an officer from her hometown of waseca, minn., where she served as a police reserve. on a recent urday morning, rogers, 23, was among 88 people who packed an informational meeting at the n
