Tesla CTO JB Straubel, who also leads battery technology at the company, confirmed that Model 3 battery cell production started in June and the company aims to reach an annual production rate of 35 GWh next year.

Tesla has said the Model 3 is not meant to be a replacement for the Model S, nor an improvement over it. The compact Model 3 may not entice a global market that's increasingly shifting to SUVs, including all-electric SUVs from Audi and others going on sale soon.

To a question asking Musk if he was bipolar, the CEO of Tesla replied, "Yeah".

Apple removes 'illegal' VPNs from China App Store
The Chinese crackdown on VPNs is not particularly shocking, given the country's well-known isolation from the broader internet. This has led to VPN providers accuse Apple of being unnecessarily supportive of the heightened censorship regime in China .

But Musk says Tesla worked hard to make the Model 3 simpler and cheaper to make than Tesla's previous vehicles.

More than a few customers said that they have trouble getting timely and satisfactory service for their cars, especially among Model X owners, the note said.

"If you buy a ticket to hell, it isn't fair to blame hell.", he said while adding that one to really care about what one's doing. People ordering a vehicle now likely won't get it until late 2018. Robin Santucci was one of the first in line to order a Model 3 at the Santa Monica, California, Tesla store in March 2016.

It has no instrument panel; the speed limit and other information normally there can be found on the center screen.

Frank Sinatra's widow dead at 90
Having a famous spouse wasn't unusual for her, as Barbara Sinatra's first marriage was to one of the Marx Brothers, Zeppo. The former model, who gained prominence as "Lady Blue Eyes", passed away this morning at her California home.

The company is now focused on getting out of "Model 3 production hell", which is basically a way of saying that it wants to ramp up Model 3 production to full capacity before it starts taking orders for a new model. The company has lost money during all but two quarters since going public - and was in the black, only then, by using its own, non-standard accounting methods. But even at that pace, Tesla will remain a small player. Murdoch and Rice earlier this month had been brought to the board as a compromise by Musk following shareholder pressure to have a more balanced perspective not beholden to Tesla management. Toyota Motor Corp. made more than 10 million vehicles a year ago.

"A decade ago they were a little more than golf carts".

The Sims 4 Is Coming to Xbox One
Spencer later confirmed that Xbox One/PC exclusive Crackdown 3 will be on show at the annual Gamescom event in Cologne next month. It's been nearly a month since Xbox received the most amount of fixes in the Alpha cycle, involving OOBE, Store, and Mixer.
