Tesla Update. It’s been a busy few days in Elon/Tesla world. The company finally named a new Chairman of the Board, Australian Exec Robyn Denholm. She comes from a telecom company named Telstra (coincidence?). Tesla also rolled out its new track mode to all Model 3 Performance vehicles, which basically gives the electric vehicles race-car-like capabilities. Expect to see some Teslas doing donuts in the nearest parking lot.

Case Folded. Samsung finally unveiled its folding-screen phone concept. It has a standard screen on the outside and another, flexible, double-sized one on the inside. People are excited. Me? Not so much.

Inside the MacBook Air. Earlier this week, I reviewed the new MacBook Air, It’s a gorgeous, thin, and secure device. What I didn’t do is open the chassis up and look inside. I leave that task to the iFixit team. The take away? This is a nearly-repairable device.

More Disney. Netflix is the most powerful streaming service on the planet. Even rivals like Amazon Prime lag far behind, but the binge-machine is about to get some very serious competition from the house that Mickey built. Disney will launch its Disney+ streaming service late next year and, with all the Intellectual Property the company owns (including newly acquired 29th Century Fox), it’ll be a juggernaut. Worse news for Netflix, Disney will likely pull many of its titles from Netflix, putting more pressure on Netflix to pour even more billions into original content programming. Disney+ will be doing the same.
