Elon Musk's SpaceX Starship Rocket Exploded?
(And More TECHNOLOGY News)
Car people, this is for you. A company called Aptera has a new solar electric vehicle they say doesn’t need to be charged. The way it works is, you leave it in the sun all day, and then you can drive all night long. It's almost the perfect vehicle unless you're one of those weirdos who likes parking in a garage.
This is cute. A 12-year-old boy and his 7-year-old sister took their parents’ Range Rover on a 100-mile, multistate joy ride. The weird part is, their parents were in the backseat the whole time and wouldn't stop asking "Are we there yet?"
In space news, Elon Musk's SpaceX Starship rocket exploded on impact into a fireball after a high-altitude test flight, but Elon says their goal was gathering flight data and the landing wasn't expected to succeed. Yeah, tell that to the guy inside the rocket.
Listen up, gadget freaks. In London, a woman hacked into her ex-boyfriend’s Alexa to tell the new girlfriend to leave. And to that hacker lady I say: drop the loser! With those hacking skills you can have any guy you want. And by "any guy" I mean me. Just hack into my Alexa. I'll know it's you, my sweet cyber-crime-y dreamgirl.
Finally, in a strange marketing stunt, Microsoft tweeted a commercial for a fake holiday album called Microsoft Holiday Hits. Hey, it's better than that Hip-Hop album they released that was just called "Word".
