Will be on Al Jazeera America in about 20 minutes, discussing whether it's a bad thing that tech companies are evolving faster than government can legislate them, and whether Google is still truly doing no evil.

Looks like Nike's out of the Fuelband business. Sad to see. Cutting the cord now ahead of impending iWatch disruption? 
The sportswear company has decided that only software has a future in Nike’s technology vision. That means cutting the FuelBand, including a slimmer version planned for the fall.

I've heard some fears about whether BMW can repair the carbon frame on the i3 and, indeed, how much it will cost to do so. Some think insurance costs will be unreasonably high, but BMW techs told me it should be comparable to a normal BMW. #NYIAS  
The use of carbon fiber in the frame of the BMW i3 has many worried about high repair costs. BMW gives us an inside look at why it won't be so bad.

Next up from #NYIAS: I got to take a test drive in BMW's Concept plug-in X5 SUV yesterday. (And it was bucketing down with rain, so sadly I wasn't abel to take any photographic evidence of the experience.)
BMW has been making waves with its i3 and i8, but now it's time for the company's more traditional cars to get some bigger battery packs. We take a prototype plug-in hybrid X5 SUV for a quick spin.

Miserable breakfast. Order food, wait 5 minutes, am told orange juice will be another 10 minutes but will be there with the food. Food comes (I ordered eggs and toast. I get exactly that and nothing more, DRY toast) and no oj. Am told a few minutes later the OJ isn't coming so I finish my breakfast. As soon as I do, the oj shows up. All that took over 30 minutes and cost $22 for two eggs and a thimble of OJ. If you're a business traveler wanting a good, quick meal to start the day, steer clear.
