The Morning After: Tesla party mode activate

The other shoe dropped.MoviePass is raising the price of its standard plan

MoviePass announced that in the next 30 days, its standard one-movie-per-day plan will increase from the current $10 per month to $15 per month. Additionally, tickets to first-run movies opening on at least 1,000 screens will be limited for the first two weeks. Last but not least, “MoviePass will begin to limit ticket availability to blockbuster films.” In a press release, the company spun it as a way to limit burning up its remaining cash (true) and an attempt to “empower” smaller films (laughable).

Sorry guys, even Elon Musk can’t fix MoviePass…

Well, Elon Musk sure had a good run at fixing the world’s pressing problems. Stuff like climate change — with those fancy electric sports cars, built in a fancy tent. Or those fancy solar roof tiles. (Fancy rockets aren’t really a ‘fix’ at this point but he’s thinking about the extraterrestrial future of humanity, okay.)

There was also that kid-sized sub he hastily put together this summer to try and save boys trapped in a cave in Thailand (that endeavor didn’t end so great for Musk though).

He’s even offered to fix Flint’s polluted water.

But it appears that even a well-greased God Complex knows its limits. Because the problem that Musk himself has said is too big for Musk to fix is, well, cash-strapped MoviePass.

At least that’s what Musk said to BuzzFeed reporter Samir Mezrahi via twitter….

So, sorry movie lovers. Musk and his billions might have been your only hope — against price read more

Windows ‘Your Phone’ app gives you access to Android files on a PC

Microsoft first announced the drag-and-drop experience earlier this year during its annual Build developer conference in Seattle. It will eventually be available for iPhone users, but only in a limited capacity, particularly to send the webpage you’re viewing on mobile to a computer so you can continue watching videos or reading text on a bigger screen.

Your phone must be running Android 7.0 and above to be able to use the experimental feature. Simply fire up the Your Phone app and then download the corresponding mobile application. Once you’ve set things up, keep an eye out for a desktop pin rolling out in the next few weeks. It will give you even quicker access to the photos on your mobile device.

Forget #vanlife—#nestlife is about to have its moment.

Airstream founder Wally Byam began experimenting with fiberglass back in the 1950s. A half-century (and then some) later, his company has finally built the Nest, a plastic trailer that’s as stylish and rugged as the iconic, road-tested aluminum capsules. While Airstream’s retro-chic metal models can carry sticker-shocking six-figure price tags, its new fiberglass tow-along is half that—cheap enough to attract a new generation of customers. The 16-foot Nest is read more

Leak provides early details for Trump’s proposed Space Force

The proposal, crafted by Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, would also lead to a major overhaul in how the military buys, develops and launches satellites, including (surprise) a larger role for private space companies. A new Space Development Agency would gradually take over the acquisition processes that are currently handled by individual branches. As their existing programs wrapped up, their resources would shift toward the new agency.

There’s no certainty that the proposal will stay as-is, let alone that it’ll be accepted. There are practical concerns whether or not you like the idea. What happens to the Air Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center, which handles the vast majority (about 85 percent) of the military’s space budget? What about its other space-oriented locations? Shanahan’s office describes the proposal as just “the start,” but it’s evident that some ideas would have to be fleshed out quickly.

Regardless, it may read more
