Samsung has a new flagship, though the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has the feel of something pretty familiar. Largest of the company’s phones with its 6.9-inch Super AMOLED display, the S Pen enabled handset doesn’t stray too far from last year’s Note 10, only pausing to dip liberally into the aesthetic of the Galaxy S20 Ultra released earlier in 2020. … Continue reading

Tesla will build its newest factory in Austin, Texas, the company said Wednesday.  Tulsa, Austin, and other cities had fiercely competed in recent months to win the $1 billion investment.  Eventually, the plant will make Tesla's Cybertruck and hire up to 5,000 workers, the company said.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. It's official — Tesla's fourth car factory, its second in the United States, will be in Austin, Texas. CEO Elon Musk made the announcement on Tesla's second-quarter earnings conference call Wednesday following a fierce bidding process that also involved Tulsa, Oklahoma and others. In the end, however, Travis County and a local school district's deal for more than $65 million in tax rebates over ten years won over the electric car maker. "It's going to be right near Austin," Musk said, "five minutes from Austin international Airport and about 15 minutes from downtown Austin." What is currently a concrete plant on a rural swath of land in the city's southeast quadrant airport will soon be home to a 5 million square foot plant for Tesla's Cybertruck, its Semi truck, as well as Model 3 and Y. The company says it hopes to hire up to 5,000 workers at a starting wage of $15 an hour for many of the low-skill manufacturing roles. The land is an "ecological paradise" along the Colorado River, Musk said, and will remain open to the public for recreation opportunities.  But the decision wasn't without controversy, as with most tasks undertaken by Tesla and Musk. At a series of public meetings, citizens turned out in force to remind county commissioners of past legal issues the company's had with regards to labor relations, worker safety, unions, and environmental impact. In Austin, Tesla will join a large and entrenched cohort of high-tech companies that began to flock to the area in the 1970s led by Dell, IBM, and 3M. As companies continued to pour in over recent decades, the city has experienced skyrocketing population growth. A business-friendly climate, coupled with no state income tax for individuals, and a wealth of educated workers have made it a fitting home for hundreds of companies, both tech imports and home-grown enterprises alike.  Tesla's market valuation continues to skyrocket as the company slowly ramps up annual production. While easily the world's most valuable automaker, it produces just a fraction of the vehicles sold by Detroit's old guard like Ford and General Motors. That could soon change, if current rates hold and Austin joins the likes of Berlin, Shanghai, and Fremont, California. Oklahoma officials, while disappointed to not win the factory, said they were looking forward to supporting Tesla suppliers given the close relationship with Texas. "Over the past few months, Tulsans and Oklahomans as a whole showed the nation and the world that our state is worthy of being one of two finalists for an innovative, cutting-edge company like Tesla," Governor Kevin Stitt said in a statement. "The comprehensive effort made by the State of Oklahoma, the City of Tulsa and the Tulsa Regional Chamber proves Oklahoma remains open for business and an ideal destination for the automotive industry despite today's announcement."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: The rise and fall of Donald Trump's $365 million airline

Slack is tired of Microsoft‘s attempts to undercut its market. The work collaboration app has filed an anti-competitive complaint against the Windows-maker with the European Commission, accusing the giant of unfairly bundling its Teams messenger with Office 365 and stifling rivals. “The complaint details Microsoft’s illegal and anti-competitive practice of abusing its market dominance to extinguish competition in breach of European Union competition law,” Slack said in a statement. “Microsoft has illegally tied its Teams product into its market-dominant Office productivity suite, force installing it for millions, blocking its removal, and hiding the true cost to enterprise customers.” This isn’t… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Microsoft,Slack

Electric vehicle subsidies in Germany are now so good that some cars are as cheap as a mobile contract, in some cases they’re even free. At the start of July, the German government doubled its subsidy contribution to new EV buyers. Along with manufacturer support it meant that buyers could get around €9,000 ($10,000) toward a new zero emission vehicle. There is a caveat, though: getting an EV for free only applies to leased vehicles, not an outright purchase. Taking the subsidies into account, one vehicle dealership chain in Germany has been able to offer the new 80 kW Renault… This story continues at The Next Web

Tory MP Sir Desmond Swayne has said forcing people to wear a face covering in shops to prevent the spread of coronavirus is a “monstrous imposition”, despite the high death rate among retail workers. Matt Hancock confirmed on Tuesday it will be mandatory for people in England to wear face coverings in shops from July 24.Anyone failing to comply with the new rules could face a fine of up to £100.The health secretary told MPs the death rate among sales assistants was 75% higher amongst men and 60% higher amongst women than in the general population. “We must keep our shop keepers safe,” he said.“In recent weeks we have reopened retail and footfall is rising. We want to give people more confidence to shop safely and enhance protection for those who work in shops.“Both of these can be done by the use of face coverings.”But Swayne, the MP for New Forest West, complained: “Nothing would make me less likely to go shopping than the thought of having to mask up.“Was this consultation with the police force and particularly the chief constable of Hampshire, for it is she that will have to enforce this monstrous imposition against myself and a number of outraged and reluctant constituents?”Hancock told him the public had been “remarkable in their fortitude” by sticking to the rules and enforcement would “largely be undertaken by the British people themselves”.“The balance in the need to restrict the spread of the virus, whilst also allowing the ancient liberties of a gentleman to go shopping, is a difficult balance to strike and we have made the judgment that the best way to strike it is to allow a gentleman to go shopping, but require him to wear a face mask,” he added.Labour MP Chris Bryant told Swayne as he was “a knight of the realm” he “should just consider it a visor”.Helen Dickinson, the chief executive of the British Retail Consortium, said she hoped the enforcement of face coverings would make people “feel even more confident”, not less, about returning to shops.Hancock also hinted there will be a further extension to locations where face masks and coverings must be worn, telling MPs the measures will be introduced “in chunks”He said while he did not “anticipate that at this point” it will be extended to pubs and bars, it would be kept “under review”.The announcement follows a weekend of confusion over whether ministers intended to make face coverings compulsory.Boris Johnson revealed on Friday he was looking at imposing “stricter” rules.Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove said on Sunday he did not believe face coverings should be mandatory and that it was better to “trust people’s common sense”.But less the 48 hours later the government announced people would be forced to wear them.Related...

That’s mainly because I’m one of the few people whose ears just don’t fit with the mostly universal design.I also don’t think they’re for everyone.The AirPods Pro look immediately familiar and yet uncanny at the same time.So I wasn’t surprised that the AirPods Pro silicone tips didn’t squeeze into my ear canal as much as they nestled neatly on its edges.When wearing the AirPods Pro around town, at the gym, or even sitting in my lazy chair, it often felt like I wasn’t wearing anything at all.Although I did miss the airtight seal I get with some other earbuds, I never felt like they were going to go flying off my head and onto the subway tracks.
