23 May 5 cool things!
What do Tesla, Microsoft, Google, GE, and MIT have in common? They all made our “5 Cool Things in Tech” list this week!
Tesla just got the green light to sell electric cars in Maryland. Governor allows Tesla to sell directly to customers. Where will this lead?
Microsoft will bypass carriers, push Windows 10 updates directly to phones. Will this prevent the platform fragmentation that has plagued Android?
Google cars’ claim of 1 million miles with zero accidents upsets media. (Apparently they have never heard the maxim “never argue with people that buy ink by the barrel.”)
GE pushes a 3D printed mini jet engine, and then…(!) You have got to hear the sound this thing makes.
MIT says solar power fields with trillions of watts of capacity are on the way. According to my calculations, that’s a lot of power.
