TNT 1752: Please Don't Squeeze the Juice
Apple's self-driving car technology can control the steering, acceleration, braking, lane changing and u-turning of Lexus SUVs. We learned this from a Business Insider report based on a public records request for Apple's driverless car testing in California. In its testing so far, Apple is using Logitech steering wheels and pedals. Tesla is recalling 53 thousand cars over an issue with the parking break. The company issued the voluntary global recall on certain Model S and Model X vehicles built between February and October 2016. Microsoft is working on a Chromebook competitor -- a line of laptops that runs nothing but web-based applications, while also offering the option of touch screens and digital pens. The laptops are being geared for schools and those looking for low-cost laptops. Microsoft is expected to offer more details on its Chromebook competitors in May. Former Attorney General Eric Holder says he needs more time to investigate Uber's toxic culture, and Apple made two strategic hires to boost its satellite efforts and we make some conjectures about what that means for the company. We also talk to Sam Machkovech from Ars Technica is here to talk Facebook VR, Rick & Morty, and Starcraft.
