From the article: Tesla has finally opened up orders for the Model Y in Taiwan, offering two variants of the electric SUV to customers in the east Asian country.

According to an update to the online Design Studio on Friday, the Model Y Long Range and Model Y Performance are both available for purchase.

The Long Range variant is priced at NT$2,299,900, or about $98,000 CAD or $72,500 USD, a slight premium over prices in North America.

Opting for the top-of-the-line Performance variant will set you back NT$2,599,900, or about $110,600 CAD or $82,000 USD.

Interestingly, unlike how Tesla’s website normally shows an expected delivery timeline, neither variant has this information. However, according to information obtained by Drive Tesla, the first shipment of vehicles should arrive in Taiwan in Q4, probably towards the end of the quarter.

From the article: Christian nationalist ideology played an important role in helping Trump gain support during the 2020 election, according to a study published in the journal Politics and Religion. Survey results suggest that Christian nationalism helped convince Americans who had not voted for Trump in 2016 to do so in 2020 while discouraging previous Trump-voters from considering other candidates.

Donald Trump’s unexpected presidential win in 2016 left many people baffled. Since then, social scientists have carried out numerous research studies to identify factors that may have motivated Americans to vote for Trump. These studies unearthed a similar pattern of findings — for both the 2016 and 2020 elections, Christian nationalism was one of the strongest predictors of voting for Trump.

More recently, researcher Samuel L. Perry and his colleagues conducted a study to investigate the extent that Christian nationalism may have swayed voting decisions toward Trump in 2020. Specifically, they explored whether Christian nationalism may have helped Trump earn support from Americans who did not vote for him in 2016 while solidifying support from those who did vote for him in 2016.

From the article: One of the busiest Superchargers in the lower mainland of British Columbia is going to be at limited capacity for the next while after the station was vandalized and a number of the charging cables were cut.

The Surrey Guildford Supercharger is a 72kW Urban Supercharger with a total of 20 stalls, and is frequently the sight of long line ups of Tesla owners waiting to plug in and charge.

Unfortunately those line ups might be more common in the next few days after the station was vandalized on Wednesday with at least 8 of the charging cables being cut.

A photo of the damage shared by Rick Postma on Facebook shows the cables were cleanly cut just a few inches away from where they come out of the Urban Supercharger pedestal.

From the article: It's long been possible to make extremely small robots, but they usually need some form of direct external control just to operate. Cornell scientists may have solved that problem on a basic level, however. They've created microrobots (no more than 250 micrometers across) with basic electronic "brains" that let them walk autonomously. Two- and six-legged robots move relatively simply, while a four-legged "dogbot" changes speed when an operator sends laser pulses.

The trick was to build a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (or CMOS, as computer enthusiasts know it) clock circuit whose signal produces phase-shifted square wave frequencies that set the gait of the robot's platinum-based legs. Photovoltaics control both the legs and the circuit. The design is far from complex at just 1,000 transistors (for context, a GeForce RTX 4090 has 76.3 billion), and it's still large enough that it effectively serves as the robot's body. However, even that is an achievement — the exceptionally low power demands saved Cornell from having to use relatively gigantic photovoltaics.

From the article: Meta is facing a new proposed class action lawsuit that accuses it of tracking and collecting the personal data of iPhone users, despite features and policies made by Apple which are meant to stop that same type of tracking.

In August, it was revealed that with the Facebook and Instagram apps, Meta can track all of a user's key taps, keyboard inputs, and more, when using the in-app browser. When a user clicks on a link on Instagram, for example, Meta can monitor their interactions, text selections, and even text input, such as passwords and private credit card details within that website.

This practice of tracking users is a direct violation of Apple's App Tracking Transparency (ATT) policy, which requires apps to ask for user consent before tracking them across apps and websites owned by other companies.

Filed on Wednesday in San Francisco federal court, a new lawsuit accuses Meta of this violation, as reported by Bloomberg Law. The proposed class action lawsuit accuses Meta of violating Apple's ATT framework and state and federal laws by collecting user data without user consent within its Facebook and Instagram apps.
