Watch Tesla Model X Race Modded Audi RSQ8 After Audi Destroys Lambo Urus

It's an electric versus gas horsepower and speed battle, but there's a major issue. When this latest Drag Times video hit our timeline, we asked ourselves, "What in the heck is an 800HP POORUS?" If we would have stopped and thought it through, we probably would have realized. As host Brooks Weisblat explains, the Lamborghini Urus and Audi RSQ8 are built on the same platform, though the Audi is about half the price of the Lambo, thus "poor Urus." These high-performance SUVs are powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 engine. While the stock Urus is rated at about 640 horsepower, the modified Audi cranks out 800 horsepower. How do these two gas guzzlers stack up to the all-electric Tesla Model X? Not another Tesla drag race! Keep in mind, these videos and articles get a lot of eyes and work to turn people onto the prospects of an EV future. The results are interesting, but arguably only because it becomes clear during the filming that there's a recurring issue with the Model X. Actually, Brooks says right up front that the Model X performed terribly. There's a problem with the electric crossover that he says Tesla is refusing to fix. As expected, it turns out the Urus is no match for the modded Audi. It's crazy to watch the RSQ8 fly off the line. If it wasn't for the ridiculous engine sounds, one might think it's electric. We definitely need a hardcore, all-electric performance Audi SUV. Moving on to the Model X. It expectedly jumps off the line much like the 800-horsepower RSQ8, but it quickly falls way behind. We're talking about so far behind it looks like it almost stopped. Brooks says the race with the Model X should have been really close, however, the Model X is losing 200 to 300 horsepower, and it can't even come close to matching its previous acceleration times or trap speed.

Google Messages may soon support ‘Call and Message Continuity’ on Samsung Galaxy phones

For a few years now, Samsung’s Galaxy Tabs have been able to send and receive calls and text messages from Galaxy phones. While this feature, called “Call and Message Continuity,” currently requires you to use Samsung Messages, it looks like Google Messages may soon gain support for this same continuity. About APK Insight: In this “APK Insight” post, we’ve decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APKs, in the case of Android apps), we’re able to see various lines of code within that hint at possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect. We’ll try to enable those that are closer to being finished, however, to show you how they’ll look in the case that they do ship. With that in mind, read on. Call and Message Continuity On select Samsung Galaxy phones, you can set up Call and Message Continuity which lets you send and receive text messages, as well as answer or place phone calls, from a WiFI-connected Galaxy Tab or even smartwatches like the Galaxy Watch Active 2. However, as this requires you to use Samsung Messages as your default app, you’re unable to use Google Messages features like Messages for Web or Google’s carrier-independent RCS. Today, Google Messages version 6.9 “Fir” rolled out to those in the app’s beta testing program. In it, we find two new references to “CMC” that we believe may be referring to the Call and Message Continuity features of Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets. cmc_consent_key Text on Galaxy devices Unfortunately, that’s where the trail goes cold for now, as neither the Google Messages app nor Samsung’s Call and Message Continuity app has any clear references to one another. If this is indeed the beginnings of Google Messages supporting Call and Message Continuity, the support will likely only be for owners of Samsung phones to be able to switch their default messaging app to Google Messages. Galaxy Tabs and other connected devices will likely still need to use the Samsung Messages app to send and receive the messages shared through Continuity.

Michael Moore doesn't believe the polls showing Biden ahead of Trump

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is sounding the alarm five days before Election Day, strongly suggesting that polls showing Joe Biden in a comfortable lead against President Trump are not accurate. During his appearance on The Hill TV's "Rising," Moore began by calling it "awful news" that Biden was ahead of Trump by seven points in his home state of Michigan and explained how Trump managed to cut Biden's lead "in half," citing another poll that had the Democratic nominee "16 points" ahead of the president. "Trump has tightened virtually every one of these swing states to the point where- what are they saying this morning?... 'Biden's five points ahead in Wisconsin... maybe three points ahead in Florida, two points ahead in Arizona'... Listen, don't believe these polls,'" Moore said. "The Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters- when they actually call the Trump voter, the Trump voter is very suspicious of the 'Deep State' calling them and asking them who they're voting for." Polls are "fake news" to Trump supporter, he said. "So it is not an accurate count. I think the safe thing to do, this is not scientific... whatever they're saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half, right now, in your head. Cut it in half, and now you're within the four-point margin of error. That's how close this is! That's how desperately close this is!" Moore also referred to Trump as an "evil genius" for his ability to win the election. Back in August, the Oscar-winning documentarian warned Democrats about the enthusiasm gap between the Biden base and the Trump base. "I’m warning you almost 10 weeks in advance. The enthusiasm level for the 60 million in Trump’s base is OFF THE CHARTS! For Joe, not so much," Moore wrote in a Facebook post. "Don’t leave it to the Democrats to get rid of Trump. YOU have to get rid of Trump. WE have to wake up every day for the next 67 days and make sure each of us are going to get a hundred people out to vote. ACT NOW!" Moore was one of the rare liberal voices who famously predicted Trump's victory in the 2016 election.

Google is bringing its own VPN to desktops and phones with $9.99 Google One subscription

There are any number of VPN services you can use to help protect your privacy and security with an encrypted internet connection, and now Google has its own. Well, technically, it already did, but only for Google Fi cellular subscribers on Android smartphones. Now, the company’s announcing it’ll throw in an Android-based VPN free of charge to any 2TB Google One cloud storage subscriber in the US — and will expand to iOS, Windows and Mac and other countries “in the coming months.” As you can see in the image above, you’ll need to be on the 2TB Google One plan which costs $9.99 a month or $99 per year, so it’s not exactly a free VPN. But if you’re interested, this Google GIF shows you how to turn it on: A new VPN is just the latest way that Google’s trying to sweeten its cloud storage offering. In August, the company announced it would begin backing up your iOS or Android phone for free. It also reduced prices in 2018.

Android TV gets a Data Saver mode when connected to mobile hotspots (APK Download)

Google is rolling out a set of new data-friendly features on Android TV to help users monitor and reduce their TV's bandwidth usage when connected to a hotspot instead of Wi-Fi. The features are coming to Xiaomi, TCL, and MarQ TVs in India in the next few weeks, but should be available globally afterward. Chief among the additions is a new Data Saver mode under Network & Internet that can be enabled when connected to a hotspot. Google says it'll allow you to watch three times more content while keeping the same consumption. It would be cool if this was available on Wi-Fi networks as well because not everyone has huge data caps at home — my 100GB monthly is a good example of that. A new alert is also joining the data saver. When enabled, you'll get a notification for each 100MB, 500MB, or 1GB that your TV uses while tethering. Google is also adding a guide to help you connect your TV to your mobile hotspot as well as direct local network casting from the Files app on Android phones that shouldn't consume any data. The new features seem to be linked to a new Android TV Data Saver app version, which is now available on the Play Store, but curiously not compatible with my Nvidia Shield nor my Xgimi MoGo projector. If you want to try it on your TV, you can manually grab it from APK Mirror. I tried that on both of my ATV units above, and even though the app installed fine, the settings menu isn't showing up for me, even when connected to a hotspot and after restarting the app and devices. Your mileage may vary.

Apple's Late iPhone Launch Temporarily Wiped $100 Billion Off Its Stock Value

The late launch of new 5G phones caused Apple Inc's customers to put off buying new devices, leading the company on Thursday to report the steepest quarterly drop in iPhone sales in two years. Apple fell over 5% at one point in after-hours trade, wiping $100 billion from its stock market value. Since 2013, Apple has delivered new iPhones each September like clockwork. But pandemic-induced delays pushed the announcement back a month, with some devices still yet to ship. Even as booming sales of Macs and AirPods boosted overall revenue and profit above what analysts had expected, iPhone sales dropped 20.7% to $26.4 billion. (Graphic: Investors anticipated lower sales from the Cupertino, California company's bestselling product, but the hold-back was worse than expected, especially in China, where more consumers have access to 5G than in the United States or Europe. Apple has mostly beaten sales expectations this year and released a slew of new products and services that its customers have embraced while largely homebound during the pandemic. Apple said revenue and profits for the fiscal fourth quarter ended on Sept. 26 was $64.7 billion and 73 cents per share, compared with analyst estimates of $63.7 billion and 70 cents per share, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. But the flagship iPhone 12's announcement was delayed until Oct. 13, several weeks later than usual, meaning no opening-weekend iPhone sales are included in the fourth-quarter results. In an interview with Reuters, Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said that he was "optimistic" about the iPhone 12 cycle based on the first five days of shipping data. "5G is a once-in-a-decade kind of opportunity. And we could not be more excited to hit the market exactly when we did," Cook said. "At least in the U.S., the carriers are being very aggressive." The iPhone 12 release timing drove down sales in Greater China by 28.5% to $7.95 billion. Cook said he expects the new 5G devices to help iPhone sales recover in China. "What we're seeing in the early going in the first five days gives us a lot of confidence that China will return to growth in our fiscal Q1," Cook told Reuters. Apple did not provide a revenue growth forecast, but Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said revenue from services and non-iPhone products would grow by double-digit percentages in the fiscal first quarter, in line with analyst expectations. He said iPhone revenue would also grow, implying the rate would be in the single digits. Analysts expect iPhone revenue to rise 6.45% to $59.56 billion in the first quarter, according to Refinitiv data. Logan Purk, an analyst with Edward Jones, said that "while iPhone sales will grow this cycle, it will be disappointing compared to elevated expectations, as we do not believe the 5G presents a compelling reason for a wave of upgrades." ...

Cramer reacts to Amazon, Alphabet, Apple and Facebook earnings

CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Thursday rejected the idea that Big Tech stocks may be “ridiculously expensive.” “In most cases, the earnings estimates were way, way, way, way, way, way, way too low,” the “Mad Money” host said after reviewing quarterly reports from Amazon, Alphabet, Facebook and Apple. “That’s exactly what you’d expect from best-of-breed companies that are growing into their enormous market capitalizations every hour, every minute of the week,” he said. CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Thursday rejected the idea that Big Tech stocks may be “ridiculously expensive.” After sifting through the earnings reports posted by Amazon, Alphabet, Apple and Facebook, the “Mad Money” host said the idea is “insane.” “In most cases, the earnings estimates were way, way, way, way, way, way, way too low,” he said as part of his first reaction to their results from the September quarter. “That’s exactly what you’d expect from best-of-breed companies that are growing into their enormous market capitalizations every hour, every minute of the week.” Despite strong reports from four of the most valuable components on the S&P 500, only the stock of Alphabet, the parent of Google, was up in the aftermarket. Below are Cramer’s reactions to each of their results: Alphabet Alphabet shares surged double digits in the after hours after the company announced a big earnings beat and double-digit revenue growth. The company reported earnings of $16.40 per share on revenue of $46.17 billion in the third quarter, when estimates were pegged at $11.29 and $42.90 billion, respectively. “Alphabet, the parent of Google, was the one company that did something very unusual: They delivered a huge top- and bottom-line beat, and that sent the stock roaring,” Cramer said. “I always expect Alphabet to somehow drop the ball and scare people, but they didn’t this time. That didn’t happen. ... This is, as of today, a new Alphabet.” Amazon Amazon stock dipped 1% after the company announced quarterly numbers, despite having results that were much better than expected. The online giant made a profit of $12.37 per share, nearly twice the $7.41 that was expected, and brought in $96.15 billion in sales, against a Factset estimate of $92.78 billion. “They obliterated the estimates,” Cramer said. “The only real blemish? While the guidance for the next quarter was strong, their operating income forecast was a little bit light, which is why the stock got dinged a bit after hours.” Facebook Facebook shares moved 1% higher before trading more than 1% under after the social media company released third-quarter numbers that topped Wall Street estimates. Facebook produced $2.71 of earnings per share and $21.47 billion in revenue, against analyst forecasts of $1.91 and $19.8 billion, respectively. ...

Covid-19: Record traffic out of Paris as second French lockdown begins

Traffic around Paris hit record levels just hours before a new national lockdown came into force across France. Jams stretched to a cumulative 430 miles (700 km) in the Ile-de-France region early on Thursday evening, local media reported. Lockdown measures came into force at midnight on Friday (23:00 GMT) to tackle spiralling Covid infections. People have been ordered to stay at home except for essential work or medical reasons. President Emmanuel Macron said the country risked being "overwhelmed by a second wave that no doubt will be harder than the first". Daily Covid-19 deaths in France are at the highest level since April. On Thursday, authorities reported 47,637 new cases and 250 new deaths. French media report that many Parisians have left the city to spend lockdown in the countryside. Anna, 24, told Le Figaro newspaper that she had left her family's Paris apartment for their second home in Bernay in northern France. She said spending the first lockdown in Paris was "psychologically hard" - but in Bernay, "the air is cleaner, we breathe, we feel free". A similar exodus happened in March, when the first lockdown came into force. At the time some residents of French regions were hostile to Parisians who had fled the capital. "We're asking people to stay at home and Parisians to stay in Paris. You can well understand that if 4,000 people from Paris invade and one-third of them are infected without knowing, obviously it risks spreading rapidly," wrote one commentator in the local Sud Ouest (South-West) newspaper. During the first Covid wave, however, certain regions of France - Paris and the north-east in particular - were being badly hit when the lockdown was imposed, while other areas had comparatively few cases. This time, officials have said the virus is spreading fast all over the country. Meanwhile, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said that Brussels had set aside €220m (£200m) in order to transfer Covid patients from hard-hit member states to other nations with spare hospital beds. She also called for European Union countries to pool their coronavirus data, and urged them not to close their borders to each other. ...

How Hoop hit #2 with its Tinder for Snapchat

Snapchat’s developer platform is blowing up as a gateway to teen social app users. Hoop is the latest Snap Kit blockbuster, rocketing to No. 2 on the overall App Store charts this month with its Tinder -esque swiping interface for discovering people and asking to message with them over Snapchat. Within a week of going viral, unfunded French startup Dazz saw Hoop score 2.5 million downloads. The fact that such a dumbfoundingly simple and already ubiquitous style of app was able to climb the charts so fast demonstrates the potential of Snap Kit to drive user lock-in for Snapchat. Because the developer platform lets other apps piggyback on its login system and Bitmoji avatars, it creates new reasons for users to set up a Snapchat account and keep using it. It’s the same strategy that made Facebook an entrenched part of the internet, but this time it’s for a younger crowd. In the first-ever interview about Hoop, Dazz’s 26-year-old co-founders Lucas Gervais and Alexi Pourret reveal that the idea came from watching user patterns in their previous experiment on the Snap Kit platform. They built an app called Dazz in 2018 that let users create polls and get anonymous answers from friends, but they noticed their 250,000 users “always ended up adding each other on Snap. So we decided to create Hoop, the app to make new Snap friends,” Gervais tells me. Gervais and Pourret have been friends since age two, growing up in small town in France. They met their two developers in high school, and are now marketing students at university. With Hoop, they say the goal was to “meet everyone’s needs, from connecting people from different cultures to helping lonely people to feel better to simply growing your Snapchat community.” ...

Nvidia GeForce Now Finally on Beta; What Makes it Stand Out Over Stadia?

Nvidia's big game-streaming competitor to Google Stadia and Microsoft Project xCloud, GeForce Now, is officially out of beta today and is available for users in Europe and North America. GeForce Now lets you play PC video games, with minimum fuss, on any PC, MacOS, or Android device. Want to play Overwatch to your Samsung cellphone or Red Dead Redemption 2 for your MacBook Air? The idea is, you log in and go. GeForce Now vs. Competitors: What's the Difference? Some people ask this question: What makes GeForce Now stand out from its other game-streaming competitors? GeForce Now is a service that connects into your existing game stores accounts such as Blizzard, Epic, GoG, and Steam. So, if the service ever dies, you'll still have your games kept-though you could lose saves in case you don't have cloud saves enabled for every respective carrier. This updated service now feels more stable compared to Stadia and Project xCloud, which both have a fewer game selection and require specific controllers. Nvidia's GeForce Now has a significantly more massive games library than Google's Stadia. Microsoft's Project xCloud game streaming app could also make the same claim. ALSO READ: All Xbox Games Will Be Playable On xCloud Streaming Service - Yes, All Generations Of Xbox Brief History of Ndivia's GeForce Now However, GeForce Now has been "a little inconsistent." A similar provider called GeForce Now allowed you to play a selection of video games offered by using Nvidia or streamed without delay out of your PC. The service was launched as Nvidia Grid lower back in 2013. The game-streaming application turned into rebranded GeForce Now in 2015, and the beta became available on Nvidia's Android set-top box, the Nvidia Shield. A new provider was released into beta in 2017 with an identical name. The users could play any game they have in other PC gaming stores instead of playing a small selection of games offered by Nvidia. GeForce Now Allows Cross-Playing with PC, Mac, Chromebooks, Android Smartphones, Nvidia shield. The GeForce Now has progressed over the years as the current version no longer has connectivity issues. You could smoothly play with your games through GeForce Now by log in to your account. You will be able to play games on a wide variety of devices - including mobile devices, the Nvidia Shield media streaming device for TVs, Macs, and PCs. However, Nvidia has not mentioned whether GeForce Now will work with Apple iPhones. GeForce Now gamers, unlike other game streaming applications, are not limited to other players who are also playing games on GeForce Now. For example, the users could be playing a game on GeForce Now while playing against someone running a game locally on their PC. ...

Tesla CEO Elon Musk teases possible new Texas gigafactory

Tesla has been on a tear lately, and it looks like CEO Elon Musk is trying to think of new ways to spend some money. Tonight he dropped a hint that, in addition to current gigafactory projects in China and Germany, Tesla is considering one in Texas. Tesla’s Shanghai gigafactory is already up and running with a current capacity of 150,000 vehicles per year. Tesla plans to expand it more this year, including adding local Model Y production for the China market. And the purchase contract has been signed on Tesla’s gigafactory in Germany, with construction beginning on access roads, despite some local protests. Tesla has also announced plans to open design centers in both Germany and China. Tesla’s current design center is in Hawthorne, California. Finally, Tesla has another factory in Buffalo, New York. This factory is mainly focused on “Tesla Energy” products, and was part of Tesla’s SolarCity merger. The original gigafactory got that name to denote its massive size. “Giga” is the metric prefix for “billion,” and it seemed that Tesla wanted to signify that their battery factory would reach the capacity to produce a billion cells. Tesla’s first gigafactory in Nevada is one of the largest buildings in the world by floor area and footprint. The gigafactory name took off, and now Tesla is just calling everything a gigafactory, whether it be for batteries or otherwise. For a while Tesla named all these factories sequentially — gigafactory 1, 2, 3, 4. But that started to get confusing as Tesla added more factories, so Tesla is now using the naming convention “Giga (area).” So these have been renamed Giga Nevada, Giga New York, Giga Shanghai, and Giga Berlin. Now those four might get another addition in Giga Texas. Tesla CEO Elon Musk put up a poll today, asking simply, “Giga Texas?” As of press time, people seem pretty excited about the idea: Texas has been in Musk’s thoughts recently. On Monday, he announced an AI hackathon amid a recruiting effort for Tesla’s autopilot team, stating that Tesla is also looking for “world-class” chip designers to join Tesla’s team in Palo Alto, California, or Austin. The Texas capital has become quite a tech hub recently, attracting a lot of young tech talent who are looking for somewhere to get away from Silicon Valley’s insanely high cost of living. While Musk didn’t specify where Giga Texas would be, we could imagine that somewhere near Austin would work well, to take advantage of the growing tech industry there. Musk also did not specify what products would be made in Texas (beyond the note about chip designers), so we’ll have to wait for more news on that. That said, Texas also currently bans Tesla from selling their cars in the state, and even recently tried to stop the company from even servicing cars in-state. That effort thankfully failed, but Texas has not yet rolled out the welcome mat for Tesla. We’ll see if that changes with this talk of a possible factory.

WATCH | This is How 99 Phones Could Change Traffic Flow in Google Maps

Google Maps has modified how people navigate the world. However, Google's influence is merely going beyond just locating and navigating. A whole flood of latest businesses, experiences, and ideas have grown up around the ability to zoom and pan around only a virtual version of a map. However, with incredible power comes great responsibility. One "hack" showed how clear it turned into play Google's system and altered the flow. Although a few would possibly argue that Waze, which is also owned by way of Google now, does a higher job at navigating roads and displaying traffic information, Google Maps has, over time, incorporating a number of those into its very own app. The innovation enables human beings to catch up without having to switch between apps for specific information. German used 99 mobile phones to hack Google Maps Simon Weckert currently took gain of the opportunity with a "hack" - as he calls it - for Google Maps. To accomplish this, he loaded 99 smartphones right into a wagon and turned all of them onto Maps navigation. As he walks down an avenue, Google acknowledges the high awareness of "users" and the slow-moving "site visitors" and marks that street as having bad site visitors. Somewhat hilariously, this would virtually cause other drivers in the place using Maps to be rerouted to avoid the "visitors" resulting from this otherwise innocent prank. Weckert even took the collection of smartphones proper outside of Google's Berlin places of work to create the virtual visitors' jam.

Hands-On With Salt's Apple TV Remote Replacement

The Apple TV 4K is a fantastic little set-top box that has an easy-to-use interface, an App Store, and options to watch all kinds of content, but there's one major flaw with the device - the Siri Remote. Apple unveiled its ¿Siri¿ (or ¿Apple TV¿) Remote with touch surface in 2015 alongside the fourth-generation ¿Apple TV¿, and it's never been a particularly popular accessory. With that in mind, Swiss company Salt created an alternative ¿Apple TV¿ Remote, which we managed to get our hands on. Salt is a Swiss telecommunications company that offers the ¿Apple TV¿ 4K in a broadband TV bundle for its customers. There's no way to order this remote in the United States or countries other than Switzerland - it's designed only for Salt customers. According to Salt, the Salt Remote was designed in close collaboration with Apple after the Salt TV customer base complained about the poor usability of the default remote that comes with the ¿Apple TV¿. Available for just under 20 Swiss francs, the Salt Remote looks more like a traditional remote than Apple's version, and it's made from a simple black plastic with buttons for controlling multiple functions. It is designed to connect to the ¿Apple TV¿ out of the box and requires no pairing to set up. It's both wider and longer than the ¿Siri¿ Remote, so it's harder to lose, which is probably a good thing for most people given how easy it is to misplace the ¿Siri¿ Remote. ...
