Ford tweaks Tesla on Twitter as Detroit carmaker plans ‘Mustang-inspired’ all-electric SUV

With all eyes trained on Tesla last Thursday awaiting its highly anticipated unveil of its Model Y crossover, Ford quietly teased the prospect of an electric version of its iconic Mustang “Pony car.” “Hold your horses,” Ford said in a tweet not so coincidentally released at 11:02 p.m. ET, minutes after Tesla’s scheduled webcast unveiling of its newest entry, the Model Y battery-electric sport utility vehicle.

Ford tweaks Tesla on Twitter as Detroit carmaker plans 'Mustang-inspired' all-electric SUV

With all eyes trained on Tesla last Thursday awaiting its highly anticipated unveil of its Model Y crossover, Ford quietly teased the prospect of an electric version of its iconic Mustang “Pony car.”

With its big V-8 engine and retro-tinged design, the Shelby GT500 is a throwback to another era, the most powerful muscle car Ford has ever produced, borrowing a name first introduced decades ago. But the Shelby is just one of several versions of the Mustang coupe that Ford is working on and the one the automaker teased on social media last week hints at a very different future.

“Hold your horses,” Ford said in a tweet not so coincidentally released at 11:02 p.m. ET, minutes after Tesla’s scheduled webcast unveiling of its newest entry, the Model Y battery-electric sport utility vehicle. The post, which featured a blue version of the classic Mustang logo on a black background, was a clear reference to a terse announcement Ford made 14 months earlier when — at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit — it said it was working on a project codenamed Mach 1.

Ford declined to comment on the tweet, but an executive who asked not to be named because the plans aren’t public yet said they timed it with the Tesla launch to hint at big things coming in their own electric car program in the coming months.

Indeed it does have some big things in the works. President of Global Operations Joe Hinrichs told CNBC that the company is moving quickly toward producing what it previously described as a “Mustang-inspired” all-electric SUV that will be in showrooms next year, about the same time Tesla begins to deliver the first Model Y battery SUV.

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds look less silly than Apple AirPods and are just as good

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds are the company’s take on Apple AirPods, and they’re really good. Apple’s AirPods have become incredibly successful since their launch in 2017. While they work with Android phones, the target audience has mostly been for Apple products, since they pair so easily with them. Samsung has tried to compete with its own version AirPods for several years now, but its latest attempt is its best yet and is the best option I’ve found for Android users. Plus, they look a lot less sill

Samsung's Galaxy Buds look less silly than Apple AirPods and are just as good

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds are the company’s take on Apple AirPods, and they’re really good.

There’s a reason why Samsung continues to play in this market. Apple’s AirPods have become incredibly successful since their launch in 2017. While they work with Android phones, the target audience has mostly been for Apple products, since they pair so easily with them.

Samsung has tried to compete with its own version AirPods for several years now, but its latest attempt is its best yet and is the best option I’ve found for Android users. Plus, they look a lot less silly than AirPods, which makes them a fine alternative even for people who own iPhones.

Here’s what you need to know.

After two fatal Boeing plane crashes, the world turned on the US

China moved first. By midday Wednesday more than 30 countries and airlines from India to Italy had banned Boeing 737 Max jets from their skies after a second fatal crash of one of the planes brought the death toll to 346 people. The deadly crashes raised concerns around the world that they may have both been caused by software Boeing added to the modern version of its workhorse jet.

After two fatal Boeing plane crashes, the world turned on the US

China moved first. Indonesia followed. Then Singapore and Australia.

By midday Wednesday more than 30 countries and airlines from India to Italy had banned Boeing 737 Max jets from their skies after a second fatal crash of one of the planes brought the death toll to 346 people. The deadly crashes raised concerns around the world that they may have both been caused by software Boeing added to the modern version of its workhorse jet.

But the U.S. aviation regulator repeatedly stood by the American-made plane, even as close allies like the European Union decided to suspend the plane from operating there.

It left the Federal Aviation Administration, which has presided over an unprecedented period of commercial airline safety at home, in an unfamiliar state: alone.

Google Maps AR first look at augmented reality directions

Google Maps has an experimental new feature on iPhone and Android that shows you exactly where to walk when trying to get to a destination.

While it’s fine on a phone, it’s more interesting as a vision of the future. It shows one way augmented reality glasses — which superimpose computer images over the real world — could actually be useful.

Google was early to the idea with Google Glass, which launched in 2013. It received a lot of negative attention because of its odd style and video cameras and never took off as a consumer product, but is still being used in some businesses.

But a lot of other companies are working on the problem, imagining that augmented reality glasses could someday replace smartphones.

Microsoft just released the second version of its Hololens, and start-up Magic Leap released a version of its glasses for software developers last year. Apple is betting big on augmented reality on its iPhones, and is reportedly building AR glasses that could enter mass production this year.

I used the new Google Maps feature, which isn’t yet available for everyone, to walk to a coffee shop downtown. Instead of having to figure out the exact roads I was supposed to walk on, and in what direction, the AR feature pointed the way and even showed me exactly where I needed to go. It’s only for walking directions, since the maps in your car and other places can already tell you if you’re heading the right way.

It’s amazing. Here’s what using Google Maps AR is like.
