A world of self-driving cars is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited. Google’s car is going to start driving itself on public streets and it will have a “safety driver” aboard to take over if anything goes wrong.
Each prototype’s speed is capped at a neighborhood-friendly 25mph, and during this next phase of our project we’ll have safety drivers aboard with a removable steering wheel, accelerator pedal, and brake pedal that allow them to take over driving if needed.

People ask me all the time about what kind of phone they should get. Almost without exception, my immediate response is “Get an iPhone” for the simple reason that unless you want to massively geek-out with your phone on a regular basis, the iPhone, simply, works.
I feel even stronger about my anti-Android feelings. iPhones don’t do anything crazy; they just work. And it is that distinction that makes them the best phones to have.

Here’s what’s said to be coming:.
- Force Touch
- Camera upgrade (12mp)
- Additional microphone for noise cancellation.
- Faster CPU & more memory
- Improved Touch ID
- Improved durability
Will you get one?
Force Touch is what will likely prove to be the key selling point of the 6S models. Having introduced it on the Apple Watch and 13-inch MacBook Pro it makes perfect sense for Apple to extend this to the iPhone (and eventually the iPad).

You typed in your tweet, hit the send button, and immediately has the “oh Sh*t” moment when you realized it was malformed, whether it’s a typo, bad link, or worse, something you wish you didn’t say.
Tweetdeck is going to give you a second chance on this now by confirming you actually want to send the Tweet you’re about to send. While it’s not quite the “count to 10″ rule, at least you can think/review/contemplate before you commit your public statement.
TweetDeck added a safety net today, giving users the option to require a confirmation step before sending a tweet.
