Are you still waiting for a new Tesla with its higher capacity batteries? Maybe once the company employees have got theirs, you will also be able to grab a Model Y with longer range. Electrek reports that Tesla is selling the Model Y in a new Standard Range AWD variant that uses 4,680 cells to offer 279 miles range and five seconds 0-60MPH for $ 59,990, which is $ 3,000 less than the Long Range AWD.
These 4680 cells are actually twice the size of Tesla’s existing units – with five times the capacity. This means that the company can choose to extend the range of its vehicles or use fewer batteries, which will reduce costs while maintaining range parity.
Reportedly, we smugglers should be able to pick up the cheaper Model Y in the coming weeks, at a time when all car manufacturers are finally ready to offer us many more electric cars. We have news about Toyota’s electric car that is late for the party below, and Honda plans to launch 30 EV models by 2030.

Even the toilet overlooks the horizon.
Balloons are the cheaper version of space tourism, thanks to gentler, longer-lasting trips that do not require training, and now it’s clearer what you’re getting if you take one of these trips. Space Perspective has previewed the interior of Spaceship Neptune, its giant balloon that will take tourists to 100,000 feet (technically the stratosphere) in about two hours. That’s $ 125,000 per. ticket with a refundable security deposit of $ 1,000. That’s $ 62,500 an hour.

GoPro has unveiled the Hero 10 Black Bones, a lightweight version of the Hero 10 Black designed for FPV and Cinewhoop drones that has gained momentum in popularity. Easy enough to mount on three-inch drones, it still includes GoPro features like HyperSmooth 4.0 and 5.3K video.
Hero 10 Black Bones are cheaper with GoPro’s one-year subscription, which is free the first year. It costs $ 400 with a new subscription and $ 500 without, which means GoPro thinks you’ll like the subscription benefits enough to renew. Or at least forget to cancel. These benefits include replacement of camera without questions, discounts on accessories and unlimited backup in the cloud.

FIFA + is an ad-supported service with originals and livestreams.
FIFA, the global governing body of world football, launches its own streaming service. FIFA + will livestream men’s and women’s matches and broadcast a series of original series and documentaries. The platform will also host a large archive of older games from previous World Cups. FIFA says it will show “the equivalent of 40,000 live games a year.” At launch, we will see around 1,400 matches a month, with that number “rising rapidly” until we get closer to 4,000 a month. Which is great, but I really do not want a streaming service for every single sport.
