Autonomous vehicle technology is moving at an incredible rate

You'll have to excuse the pun in the heading, but +Derek Ross is right about the technology progressing rapidly.

Now obviously the video in the article has been edited to highlight all the really great things with the technology as it stands right now, but it is still really compelling evidence that the technology is pretty much here already. It just needs acceptance by the general public and of course government regulators.
Damn. Autonomous driving technology seems to be progressing at an extremely high rate. Watch Nvidia's BB8 self-driving car navigate the world with ease.

How long does it take to charge three high end smartphones?

This is an interesting test, as it uses the chargers that come with the phones. The Apple iPhone 7 Plus is significantly slower than the other two and with the smallest battery too.
Apple has really good battery life, but the charging time is terrible. It should be faster with the iPad charger but too bad it's not included during purchase.

Look how far we have come

I was poking around on Amazon the other day and found this. It's a 256 GB flash drive for just under £11.

So I bought two.

After opening the package and holding it for the first time, my immediate impression was, "Wow. This is solid." In other words, it doesn't feel cheap at all.
