    by Abhimanyu Ghoshal on July 22, 2021 at 6:09 am

    Speaking remotely at the B Word Conference today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the electric car company is ‘likely’ to resume accepting payment for its vehicles in the cryptocurrency, after pausing the option in May. “I wanted a little bit more due diligence to confirm that the percentage of renewable energy usage is most likely at or above 50%, and that there is a trend towards increasing that number, and if so Tesla would resume accepting Bitcoin,” said Musk, echoing a statement he’d tweeted in June. The BBC noted this caused the price of Bitcoin to surge past the $30,000 mark.…This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Tesla […]

    Samsung has finally confirmed that its next Unpacked event will take place on August 11, at 10 AM EST.

The rumor mill has been working its magic so far, so we seem to have a solid idea of what we’ll be seeing next month — unless Samsung has some major surprise in…This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Samsung […]

  • Google’s new crowd predictions for Maps may coax me back onto subways
    by Thomas Macaulay on July 21, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    Subways have never been my favorite mode of transit, but the onset of the pandemic made them even less appealing. Sixteen months later, Google Maps may finally have found a way to lure me back underground. The service is now piloting the option to see live data on the crowdedness of individual train carriages. Up front: Google initially launched transit crowdedness predictions in 2019, when people were more worried about finding a seat than catching a potentially fatal infection. The feature uses a combination of AI, historical location trends, and user contributions to estimate the seating and standing capacity on buses,…This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Goog […]

  • Try not to gag: Researchers say you’re breathing animal DNA
    by Tristan Greene on July 21, 2021 at 6:39 pm

    A team of researchers from the Queen Mary University of London and the Hamerton Zoo Park recently demonstrated they could identify and collect the DNA of dozens of different species of animal by simply extracting it from the air we breathe. Side note: According to Guinness, the longest anyone’s held their breath on record is just shy of 25 minutes. Up front: Yuck. But also, wow! We’ve long known that scientists could detect environmental DNA, or eDNA as it’s called. But this study puts into perspective not only how useful this could be but how robust our ability to detect…This story continues at The Next Web […]

  • Clubhouse ditches invites as the competition heats up
    by Thomas Macaulay on July 21, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    Clubhouse has finally ditched its invite-only policy and waitlist system. The social audio app is now out of beta and open to anyone who wants to join. The company has also unveiled a new logo and website design. Up-front: Clubhouse had used an invite system since its launch in March 2020. To join, you had to get an invite from an existing member. In a blogpost, the company’s founders said this allowed them to add users in waves without (often) breaking, but that they always wanted the app to be open: Everyone in the world should have access to meaningful conversations. And…This story continues at The Next Web […]

  • Watch a Tesla with the hyped FSD Beta 9 hurt an innocent bush
    by Ioanna Lykiardopoulou on July 21, 2021 at 2:07 pm

    Last week, Tesla finally released the fabled Beta 9 update of its Full Self-Driving package to users in the company’s “Early Access Program.” Sounds AMAZING but… you shouldn’t trust it too much. As a matter of fact, the company itself warned that the software update “may do the wrong thing at the worst time.” While some Tesla lovers might turn a blind eye to the dangers of complacency, the video above shows that the software does have a number of serious limitations. YouTube user AI Addict took his Tesla for a ride in downtown San Francisco to test the Beta 9 upgrade. And…This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Tesla […]

  • If you always wanted to understand QuickBooks Pro, this training can make it happen
    by TNW Deals on July 21, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    TLDR: The QuickBooks Pro Desktop Certification Bonus Bundle can help anyone get a handle on business accounting with eight courses filled with almost 110 hours of material. There may be no element of starting and running a business that is more crucial, yet less inherently sexy than accurate bookkeeping. Since most entrepreneurs didn’t launch their new business to tally balance sheets and process invoices, this critical task may turn into that leader’s third or fourth full-time job. Or those duties could get farmed out, often to a spouse or a nephew or another employee who adds accounting as their second…This story continues at The Next Web […]
