    Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday once again raised EVM (electronic voting machines (EVMs)) hours after billionaire tech magnate Elon Musk's statement on EVMs. "EVMs in India are a "black box," and nobody is allowed to scrutinize them. Serious concerns are being raised about transparency in our electoral process. Democracy ends up becoming a sham and prone to fraud when institutions lack accountability," Gandhi posted on X. Gandhi tagged a media report which claimed that a relative of Shiv Sena's candidate, who won the polls from Mumbai's north west by 48 votes, had a phone that unlocks an EVM. The...

But when exactly it'll be able to undock and deliver its crew of two back to the surface remains to be seen.
  • Elon Musk says Tesla shareholders voting yes for his $56 billion pay package: ‘Thanks for your support!’

    Tesla shareholders are voting to approve a $56 billion pay package for Elon Musk and to move the electric vehicle maker’s legal home to Texas, Musk said on social media platform X on Wednesday, adding that passage was by wide margins. A yes vote gives the electric carmaker more ammunition in a Delaware court, where a judge voided the 2018 pay package plan, which at the time was the largest in US corporate history, saying the board was “beholden” to CEO Musk. It also marks a massive win for Musk and the board, who have put their credibility on the...

    Apple’s efforts to narrow its artificial intelligence gap with rivals by partnering with OpenAI did little to move Wall Street. The iPhone maker’s stock price fell about 2% in Monday after-hours trading. ... Apple’s deal with OpenAI has enraged Elon Musk, who threatened to ban Apple devices from his companies — namely Tesla, SpaceX, and X. Why? On June 10 Musk called the Apple/OpenAI deal “an unacceptable security violation,” CNBC reported.

    Judicial Watch published proof that the entire government was involved in the Mar-a-Lago raid. They refused to give Donald Trump a heads-up as they did with Joe Biden, who actually did commit a documented crime. This information came out last month, but it’s still relevant.The recording was uncovered in an October 2022 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security for all communications of the U.S. Secret Service internally and with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) regarding the raid on President Trump’s home and for any video or audio recordings made during the raid on...
  • Elon Musk’s Supreme Court petition is a window into how a leftist 'justice' system works

    American Thinker ^ | 8 Jun, 2024 | Janice Edgar-West
    The special prosecutor’s overreach and the trial judge’s open bias are equally disturbing. Just when you thought the “swamp” judicial system could sink no lower, an Elon Musk-X petition to the Supreme Court reminds us about Jack Smith’s and a leftist judge’s complete disrespect for Americans’ constitutional freedom from intrusive government searches. The information emerges in X Corp.’s petition for a writ of certiorari relating to a court order arising from a search warrant that special counsel, Mr. Jack Smith (yes, that one), served on X demanding data and records from former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account. The problem from...

    XAI has its sights set on creating the world’s largest supercomputer and, according to a recent announcement, the Elon Musk-founded artificial intelligence company has selected Memphis for its site. The Greater Memphis Chamber revealed the southwestern Tennessee city had landed the planned project on Wednesday, saying it will be the "largest capital investment by a new-to-market company in Memphis history." The supercomputer will be called the "Gigafactory of Compute," the group said. Musk said it's "true" in a reply to an X post that contained footage of the Greater Memphis Chamber’s press conference announcing plans for Memphis to get the...

    A reclusive tribe in the Amazon finally got hooked up to the internet, thanks to Elon Musk — only to be torn apart by social media and pornography addiction, elders complain. Brazil’s 2,000-member Marubo tribe has been left bitterly divided by the arrival of the Tesla founder’s Starlink service nine months ago, which connected the remote rainforest community along the Ituí River to the web for the first time. “When it arrived, everyone was happy,” Tsainama Marubo, 73, told The New York Times. “But now, things have gotten worse. Young people have gotten lazy because of the internet, they’re learning...

    Company questions process that lets officials obtain secret search warrants.Elon Musk’s X Corp. has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to consider stepping in against a process that lets officials obtain information from social media companies and bars the companies from informing people whose information is handed over.The process wrongly enables officials to “access and review potentially privileged materials without any opportunity for the user to assert privileges—including constitutional privileges,” lawyers for X said in a filing to the nation’s top court.Unsealed documents in 2023 showed that X provided data and records from former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account to special...

    The social media platform X has updated its policies to formally allow pornography on the site. “We believe that users should be able to create, distribute, and consume material related to sexual themes as long as it is consensually produced and distributed,” the platform said in a recent update. “Sexual expression, whether visual or written, can be a legitimate form of artistic expression,” it added. “We believe in the autonomy of adults to engage with and create content that reflects their own beliefs, desires, and experiences, including those related to sexuality.”

    Elon Musk’s social media platform X will stage a town hall with former President Donald Trump — three years after he was suspended from the site in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riots. The presumptive Republican nominee for president, who was convicted Thursday in connection with a hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, will answer submitted questions during the livestream event, which will also be broadcast in a partnership deal with cable channel NewsNation. The social media company is also planning a similar town hall with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr, who is running for president as an...

    25 min(s) ago Tech entrepreneur and free speech advocate Elon Musk will hold a live video town hall event with former President Donald Trump after he was convicted of 34 counts of falsifying businesses records on Thursday. Citing an individual familiar with the plans, the Wall Street Journal, the first outlet to report on Musk's town hall event with the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, reported that X is "joining with the television network NewsNation to air" presidential candidate town hall events live on both platforms. X users will reportedly be able to submit questions for the candidates, and so far...

    Billionaires are putting their influence and money behind Donald Trump, a wave of support that is helping the former President narrow his fundraising gap with President Joe Biden. The latest example came last week with the news that Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman, after years of keeping his distance from Trump, is now a supporter. A collection of familiar GOP names announced their support for Trump in recent months. They include figures like Robert Bigelow and Nelson Peltz. Both have donated to Republicans for years. Both distanced themselves from Trump after Jan. 6. Both are now back on board. Robert Bigelow,...

    High purchase prices are a major barrier to the wider adoption of electric vehicles. A significant portion of this cost comes from expensive batteries. However, in recent years, automakers have been employing an advanced manufacturing technique known as gigacasting. This method helps offset the high cost of batteries, simplifies production, and reduces the weight of EVs. Nissan will follow Tesla, and several other carmakers like Toyota, Hyundai, and Ford, in adopting this technology. The brand aims to reduce the costs of EV parts by 10% and slash weight by 20%, Automotive News reported. Nissan's EVs using gigacasting are expected to...

    Kabosu, the dog behind the "doge" meme, has died after 14 years of internet fame, her owner has said. The Japanese shiba inu inspired a generation of online jokes and became the face of Dogecoin cryptocurrency. She had been suffering from leukaemia and liver disease and died on 24 May. "She quietly passed away as if asleep while I caressed her," Atsuko Sato wrote on her blog, thanking Kabosu's fans. "I think Kabo-chan was the happiest dog in the world. And I was the happiest owner." As a rescue dog, Kabosu's real birthday was unknown, but Ms Sato estimated her...

    The Economist ^ | 05/23/2024
    As birth rates plunge, many politicians want to pour money into policies that might lead women to have more babies. Donald Trump has vowed to dish out bonuses if he returns to the White House. In France, where the state already spends 3.5-4% of gdp on family policies each year, Emmanuel Macron wants to “demographically rearm” his country. South Korea is contemplating handouts worth a staggering $70,000 for each baby. Yet all these attempts are likely to fail, because they are built on a misapprehension. Governments’ concern is understandable. Fertility rates are falling nearly everywhere and the rich world faces...
