Elon Musk Brags About SpaceX Going to Mars. Let’s Send Him First

It isn’t clear yet if Elon Musk simply doesn’t have a filter and says the first thing that comes to his mind or if everything he says is a carefully designed smoke grenade to attract attention away from the 15 ongoing fires that he keeps having to put out. Let’s Go to Mars Case in point: in an interview with CBS News, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk not only said that we could land an unmanned vehicle on the moon in two years but also that we will be…

Area 51 Aliens Are Not Behind Anheuser-Busch’s Planned Asset Sales

Anheuser-Busch InBev appears to be considering a sale of some of its assets following its decision to call off the IPO of its Asian business. The decision comes on the heels of scraping its Asia IPO. Still, Anheuser-Busch hasn’t lost its sense of humor. Rather than dwell on the IPO loss, it instead decided to have some fun with its Bud Light brand in regards to the viral “Area 51” story: Screw it. Free Bud Light to any alien that makes it out. — Bud Light (@budlight) July 17,…

This One Image Destroys Tesla’s Self-Driving Car Fantasy

A two-year-old video of a prankster confusing a self-driving car has gone viral for a second time, and it demonstrates a critical reason why Tesla’s self-driving cars will never become ubiquitous. Going viral once is a big event, but a “recurrent” viral video indicates that something about the content has gripped people in some visceral fashion. In this case, it’s the fact that human ingenuity can fool a self-driving car. It drives home the reason why it seems unlikely that they will ever have mass-market appeal, no matter what company…

Binance’s Listing of Dogecoin Makes Waves

Dogecoin (DOGE) first gained attention in crypto when Jackson Palmer, a computer programmer, posted the now infamous Shiba Inu dog with the comment, “Pretty sure it’s the next big thing.” The post went viral and caught the eye of programmer Billy Markus who had been working on his own cryptocurrency. Thinking dogecoin could be more than a joke, he teamed up with Palmer to develop the dogecoin cryptocurrency. It bears a similar structure to Bitcoin with a limited coin supply and POW block validation. Despite the original sarcasm behind its…

Why Ivanka Is the Ticket to Influencing Trump on Bitcoin

If there’s one person who has been by Donald Trump’s side throughout much of his life, it’s his daughter, Ivanka. From being a judge on his hit series The Apprentice to serving as an advisor to her father in the White House, Ivanka seems to have the president wrapped around her finger. One of Ivanka’s key areas of focus is entrepreneurship, which is probably the group that stands to lose the most in an anti-crypto environment in the U.S. While bitcoin doesn’t need Trump’s approval to exist, a crypto-friendly approach…

Tesla’s Woes Escalate After Autopilot Files Stolen in Corporate Espionage

As it is, the bevy of departures of employees across many divisions at Tesla has contributed to a brain drain at Elon Musk’s famously troubled company. Finding and retaining the best workers in the business, as well as people who are able to work in the apparently chaotic environment at the company, is going to be an ongoing challenge. What makes all of these departures worse, however, is that they are being accompanied by allegations of corporate espionage. Former Employee Stole 300,000 Documents Tesla has not been shy about suing…

Elon Musk Could Use Some Steve Jobs-Like Wizardry to Fix Tesla

This should be a happy time for Tesla. After recently confounding critics by breaking its quarterly record for vehicle deliveries in Q2 2019, its share price rocketed over seven percent, closing the day just over four percent higher. After a miserable quarter plagued with boardroom infighting, resignations, missed delivery targets, lukewarm sales, safety scandals, lawsuits and an ex-employee who claimed Elon Musk was personally trying to ruin his life, last week’s stock rally was a veritable oasis of good news. That notwithstanding, all is not well with Tesla. Senior executives…
