The Risks of Investing in Electric Vehicles: An Ideologically Driven Economic Misadventure

The Risks of Investing in Electric Vehicles: An Ideologically Driven Economic Misadventure

Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular in the United States as more drivers are motivated by the promise of reducing their carbon footprint. Unfortunately, these vehicles are powered by lithium-ion batteries containing rare earth elements. These critical minerals are not easily recyclable or disposable. This poses a real problem for the environment, as landfills will be required to develop practices to dispose of these minerals safely and responsibly. In addition to the environmental issues posed by EV batteries, economic misadventures are also associated with them. EVs are significantly more expensive than traditional vehicles, and their costs are not offset by the money saved in fuel costs. Many EV owners also have to pay for additional charging equipment, increasing the cost of owning an EV. Furthermore, the power grids in many cities are not equipped to handle the sudden surge in demand for electricity that would come from a large number of EVs charging...

Touch Screens on Dashboards Found to be Dangerous

Touch Screens on Dashboards Found to be Dangerous

There's no question that touchscreens are great for smartphones and tablets. But when it comes to cars, they're not relatively as safe or easy to use. A new study from the University of California San Diego finds that car buttons are safer and easier to use than touchscreens. It turns out that slapping a giant iPad onto your dashboard isn't an ideal way to control your car. The researchers conducted two studies: one that involved having participants drive a car simulator using either a touchscreen or physical buttons and another where participants used both interfaces while driving real cars on a highway. The results showed that participants were likelier to crash when using the touchscreen than when using buttons. This seems to be because of distraction—people who used the touchscreen interface were more likely to get distracted by other things happening in their environment, like looking at their phones or checking their mirrors. And because there is so much information available...

BMW is the latest automaker to start selling seat subscriptions

BMW is the latest automaker to start selling seat subscriptions

The German carmaker is offering a subscription to heat your BMW's front seats for $18 a month. So if you sign up for 12 months, it's only $180. But if you're willing to go all in and pay for "unlimited" access, you'll have to shell out $415. According to BMW, the subscription offers "unlimited access." It allows drivers to turn on their heated seats from their smartphone, tablet, or computer. The company has slowly been putting features behind subscriptions since 2020. Heated seat subscriptions are now available in BMW's digital stores in countries including the UK, Germany, New Zealand, and South Africa — but not yet in the US. BMW is just one of many car brands moving toward a subscription model. For example, Mercedes-Benz launched its subscription service late last year, offering drivers access to over 30 features — including heated seats and WiFi — for $2,000 per month. The subscription also comes with unlimited mileage. However, if you want to go over 9,999 miles in a month,...

Hackers have leaked email addresses of 235 million Twitter users

A hacker has leaked the email addresses of more than 235 million Twitter users. The breach is a significant blow to privacy, a co-founder of Israeli cybersecurity firm Hudson Rock told CNBC. He added that phishing attacks are an ever-present threat for internet users, and the database is a goldmine for hackers. Twitter users are being warned to reset their passwords after hackers obtained email addresses for more than 235 million of them and published the information. The names, email addresses, and phone numbers of users were exposed in a data breach on Thursday. Twitter said it was resetting passwords for all affected accounts but advised users to be on the lookout for suspicious activity. The breach comes just days after Facebook revealed that hackers had accessed the personal data of nearly 50 million users. The passwords were not exposed, but the email addresses were. The company said it was notifying users and had already taken steps to secure their accounts. Twitter declined...

Google’s Future is Uncertain Due to Some New Open Source Tech – ChatGPT

Google’s Future is Uncertain Due to Some New Open Source Tech – ChatGPT

Introduction Google is one of the world's most popular search engines. It's also one of the most valuable and powerful tools, but it has limitations. ChatGPT aims to fix that problem by creating a new way for people to access information online. ChatGPT's creators say the goal of their project is to create a new way for people to access information online. ChatGPT is an open-source chatbot based on the GPT-3 language processing technology from OpenAI. ChatGPT aims to create a new way for people to access information online by using natural language processing (NLP). With this tool, you can ask questions in plain English and get answers directly from the internet. ChatGPT works much like Slack or Facebook Messenger but with one significant difference: instead of typing a question into a text box, you simply type your query like you would in any other messaging platform. The app then performs NLP on what you've written and provides an answer—or sometimes several answers—to your...

Small business owners: Be wary of relying on younger family members or employees to manage their cybersecurity

Small business owners: Be wary of relying on younger family members or employees to manage their cybersecurity

Generation Z is the least cyber secure because they are the most tech-savvy generation and the least experienced in cyber security. As a result, they are more likely to take risks online, such as clicking on suspicious links or downloading unknown files and are less likely to use strong passwords or two-factor authentication. Additionally, they may need to be aware of their actions' potential consequences, such as identity theft or data breaches. The Survey Shows That Gen-Z is Dangerous Online A new survey has revealed that two-thirds of Australia's small business owners mistakenly believe that tech-savviness equates to cyber-safety skills. Unfortunately, the survey found that Gen Z (born between 1997 and 2010) are among the least cyber-safe in the country and are more likely to rate cyber security as a low or medium threat. Furthermore, they struggle more than other groups to identify and prevent some of the most common cyber attacks small businesses face, such as identity theft,...
