I knew there was a Reddit thread about it, and there was possibly an April Fool's RFC going in, but I didn't know Google had done this.

It is very legit. In fact, a friend of mine in Nashville is the co-owner of the company that helped with the SFX on this one. She posted it on their company FB page today.

I have some great friends, by the way.

That can be a problem sometimes. And on those cases I'd rather be told up front, because I don't have a problem to just put the radio, or talk, or let you choose the music if I appreciate your taste enough. Much better to have something we both can enjoy than for you to fake a smile through the distorted bass solos in Acid Wolfpack.

Then again, this might be difficult to classify anyways. Pretty sure not many people rap to an IDM "beat".

And some content creators don't want their videos featured on other people's websites, and I think it's their right to have the power to decide against that.

This week Tesla announced the Model S 70D, and dropped the Model S 60.  They've also revamped a bunch of their options.  A lot of the stuff which were included in the Tech Package are now standard.  Also included in the S 70D are superchargers, a $2000 option in the S 60.  The S 70D has dual motors (AWD), and increased range over the S 60.

Here's the thing.  Tesla doesn't even plan to put any superchargers in the foreseeable future in this province.  No superchargers, no road trips.

I don't have a garage, or even a driveway, so I can't plug in the car.

Finally, I can't afford it anyway.

So my new-found lust for the new model is pointless.
