Lamborghini Huracán EVO Sees the Future, Makes You Look Great

Willow Springs International Raceway is one of the fastest tracks in the west. Perched on the edge of the Mojave Desert, about two hours north of Los Angeles, the 2.5-mile circuit offers curves that flash by, demanding little heavy braking and welcoming throttle.

Since I’m what would be technically described as an “OK-ish amateur,” it’s a good thing my ride has my back—or, rather, front. The new Lamborghini Huracán EVO I spent a few hours whipping around Willow earlier this month has perhaps the most advanced dynamic control system of any street-legal sports car. It analyzes the vehicle’s status every 20 milliseconds and actually predicts what the driver will do next, setting up the vehicle’s systems to better manage each challenge. So while I’m usually sawing away at the wheel, working to place the car in the best spot along every inch of racetrack, the EVO smooths out that process, making for a less frantic, more enjoyable drive experience.

5G and the tactile internet: what really is it?

5G is the next generation of mobile internet connectivity. It offers speeds 10, or even 20 times faster than current 4G networks, with much faster data upload and download speeds, greater bandwidth, and more stable connections.

This will enable us to do everything we currently do with our mobile devices more quickly, including streaming live 4K video and downloading movies in moments.

However, the speed and capacity of 5G also opens up a wealth of new opportunities with other connected devices, including real-time interaction in ways that have never been possible before. 

One of the most exciting of these is tactile, or haptic communication – transmitting a physical sense of touch remotely.

What is the tactile internet?

The tactile internet will allow the sense of touch to be transmitted over long distances, with or without visual feedback – something that has previously been impossible due to the amount of data required, and the need for low-latency connections for real-time interaction.

It has the potential [...]  read more

Startups Weekly: #CodeCon, the ‘techlash’ and ill-prepared CEOs

Hello and welcome back to Startups Weekly, a newsletter published every Saturday that dives into the week’s noteworthy venture capital deals, funds and trends. Before I dive into this week’s topic, let’s catch up a bit. Last week, I wrote about Peloton’s upcoming initial public offering. Before that, I noted the proliferation of billion-dollar companies. 

Remember, you can send me tips, suggestions and feedback to or on Twitter @KateClarkTweets. If you don’t subscribe to Startups Weekly yet, you can do that here

Now I know this newsletter is supposed to be about startups, but we’re shifting our focus to Big Tech today. Bear with me.

I spent the better part of the week in Scottsdale, Ariz. where temperatures outside soared past 100 and temperatures inside were icy cold. Both because Recode + Vox cranked the AC to ungodly levels but also because every panel, it seemed, veered into a debate around the “techlash” and antitrust.
