The Tesla is the only electric car company that is addressing the charging issue head-on. What other car company has a massive global quick charging network? This is more about the United States even though Tesla is growing the Supercharger network worldwide. Currently Tesla has 2,636 Supercharger stations at 373 locations in North America. Impressive right? Well Tesla now plans to double this number by the end of 2017. Smart move considering the number of Model 3’s that will be hitting the road in the next few years. ...

The delivery via drone dream is a cool idea but has many hurdles to overcome. The biggest one is the range of said drones. I don’t imagine we will see drones delivery from warehouse to homes/businesses anytime soon. With that said, UPS’ latest approach seems like a great idea. The plan is to have a drone mounted on the roof of the UPS truck that does out-of-the-way deliveries while the driver continues doing their normal route. When the drone has delivered the package it comes back to the truck and lands for new packages...

From jet boat to submarine in seconds. Fun starts a few seconds in… wait for it. ...

I have lived in apartments and condos with walls so thin I could hear my neighbors daily conversations and other things. Things I didn’t want to hear. And I am sure they could even hear all of the noise we made on our side of the paper thin walls. I have never been so self conscious about my shower singing. Now imagine if you were practicing singing, guitar, flute, or playing video games. Especially at odd hours. Yep, you would not make the neighbors happy. Unless...

I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist. Plus, it’s Monday and it made me laugh. First off – there is no argument that a tightly tucked-in shirt looks better than a loosely tucked/blousy fitting mens shirt. It is tough to keep shirts tucked properly when moving around (squatting down, stretching, etc…).  There, I got the practical bits out of the way. Now imagine that your perfectly tucked-in shirt attracts a mate and you are about to disrobe. Get ready...

Wino Sippers (2 for $22) look like a smoking pipe but are for sipping your wine of choice. Basically a wine glass with a built-in straw to help from staining your teeth I guess. Another solution searching for a problem or the perfect white elephant gift? ...

Indoor cats outlive their outdoor counterparts by a large margin. In some cases they live 10 years more. Same goes for cats that are contained to your own backyard. That isn’t easy though. How do you contain a cat in a fenced backyard? They are climbing ninjas. Some crafty folks have come up with a fence topper system that is made of a four aluminum paddles that rotate freely. The

Three and a half months after Samsung discontinued the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone they finally have a full autopsy of the causes. Yep, causes, there were a few things that went wrong. Heck, they even made a pretty infographic (after the break) to explain the problem. Samsung apparently used two different battery manufacturers which they labeled as “battery A” and “battery B”. The “A” versions were in recalled phones (before September) and the “B” versions were for the next batch of exploding...

First off, these files aren’t coming via the standard way (leaks), they have been declassified by the Central Intelligence Agency and put online. Anyone with an online connection can spend the next few years reading once classified CIA documents. Here is the link, have fun. ...
