The future of the '80s is finally here.
There was an urban legend when I was growing up about someone who thought "cruise control" was autopilot in their RV, turned it on, and went in the back to make a sandwich. Tesla Motors is set to make that tall tale obsolete in the coming months with a real autopilot mode for its cars to drive themselves down the highway.Read More

I'll stop saying Elon Musk is secretly Tony Stark when he stops acting like it, and he's been very concerned about unstoppable AI destroying all of humanity lately.

They're afraid we might do that, Dave.
Sure, we nearly constantly warn the Internet about the impending threat of our eventual robot overlords, but who wants to listen to a bunch of bloggers making nervous Terminator jokes? Now there's an open letter signed by actual experts in artificial intelligence that urges everyone to make sure that they build their AI to factor "is this good for humans" into its decisions.Read More
If at first you don't succeed...
Don't be disheartened by all the headlines about SpaceX's Falcon rocket crashing instead of landing on a barge as planned. Instead, be amazed that they successfully crash landed a rocket in a designated area.Read More
There are no strings on Musk.
Now do you believe me that Elon Musk is not-so-secretly Iron Man? The dude is worried about Ultron, for crap's sake! Whoever came up with this viral marketing campaign for Age of Ultron deserves a raise.Read More
I can't tell you what I'm thinking right now.
Oh. Oh boy. There's so many poorly chosen words in that sentence.Read More
