🚗 Tesla will sue you for $50k if you resell your Cybertruck too earlyLINK
Tesla's new Cybertruck cannot be resold by owners within the first year after delivery, as per the company's sales terms.
If owners attempt to resell the Cybertruck within this period, Tesla may sue for $50,000 or prevent them from buying future Tesla vehicles.
The Full Self-Driving (FSD) subscription feature is not transferable if the vehicle is sold, and the Cybertruck's starting price is likely higher than the originally announced $39,900.
💸 Pushy checkout screens are helping ‘tipflation’LINK
Checkout screens with tipping prompts are increasingly common, making customers feel pressured to tip more often and potentially higher amounts.
Technology simplifies the tipping process but may also lead to unintentional or anxiety-driven tipping due to preset percentage options and social influences.
The article suggests that while digital tipping is convenient, direct cash tips may provide a more satisfying and personal way to reward service staff.
👤 How digital twins may enable personalised health treatmentLINK
Scientists predict that within five to 10 years, virtual models of organs and "in silico" trials could revolutionize personalized medicine by predicting individual responses to drugs and treatments.
Digital twins in healthcare use personal and biological data to create virtual organs or even whole-body models to plan surgeries, design medical devices, and personalize drug therapies.
Ongoing research includes the development of digital twins for cardiac care, cancer treatment, and pregnancy management, with potential applications for improving patient-specific outcomes and efficiency in healthcare systems.
🚀 SpaceX worker injuries rise as Elon Musk accelerates Mars mission, report saysLINK
A Reuters investigation has revealed over 600 unreported injuries at SpaceX, suggesting Elon Musk's push for rapid Mars exploration may compromise worker safety.
SpaceX's injury rates exceed the industry average, with the Brownsville site reporting a rate of 4.8 injuries per 100 workers in 2022.
Workers have experienced serious injuries, including blindness and coma, while SpaceX has faced minimal penalties, paying only small fines for safety violations.
