Tesla Is Looking To Integrate Zoom Calls In Their Cars

Zoom has announced that its video conferencing software will soon be integrated into Tesla’s cars. Will we soon be holding meetings while driving?

Zoom and Tesla

Nitasha Walia, Zoom Group Product Manager for Meetings, made the announcement at the company’s event Zoomtopia. The company confirmed that the Zoom service will be included in all new Tesla models

It’s still not official when the integration might take place. It’ll likely to happen shortly now that it’s been made public.

There’s much we don’t yet know about integration. We do know that the platform will use the cabin camera in Tesla vehicles. It’ll also be integrated with the Tesla OS calendar. 

We assume that the Zoom feature will only be available when the car is parked. It’s obvious that it’s dangerous to attend meetings while driving. But none of the companies involved have confirmed this yet.

We don’t know if the service will require a WIFI connection or if it’ll be enabled as a part of Tesla’s Premium Connectivity service. 

There have been concerns about driver privacy due to the cabin camera. Tesla claims that the videos and images captured by the camera don’t leave the vehicle and aren’t stored on servers. But we’ve seen plenty of cases where tech giants have lied about how they use the data they collect.

Are you excited about the possibility of meetings in your car?

Users Are Fleeing Twitter And Joining Mastodon

Mastodon servers went down as nearly half a million Twitter users decided to create a new account on a little-known social media platform. 

Twitter to Mastodon

Not a day goes by that we don’t hear something exciting from the Twitter offices since Elon Musk took over the social media giant 

But not everything is good news, and some users don’t like where the platform is headed.

Mastodon is an open-source software for running self-hosted social networking services. One of the largest communities using Mastodon is Fosstodon. Fosstodon users talk about VR and tech gear, but you can also find other posts.

Unhappy Twitter users are jumping over to Fosstodon, which broke its server. Mastodon has long been known for being the closest thing to Twitter in terms of functionality. But in terms of size, it’s never been as big as Twitter.

Fosstodon had only around 3,000 users last week. This number skyrocketed to 40,000 total members after the Musk Twitter takeover. 

Mike Stone, the cofounder of Fosstodon, explains. 

“We can’t keep up with those requests, so we just opened the floodgates.” 

He added. 

“My concern right now is the people that are coming in don’t understand the point of Fosstodon specifically, as opposed to the greater Mastodon environment.”

It’ll be interesting to watch what happens to Twitter and Mastodon in the near future.

An App That Enables Professional Networking For Gen Z

Pineapple is a new app that helps Gen Z professionals create digital portfolios through a visual story profile. 

David Diamond is the cofounder and CEO of the company. He came up with the idea when he applied at Intercom, where he was initially rejected because of his poor resume. Later, he got the job after improving his portfolio and resume.

He explains. 

“I wondered, if I had to put together a portfolio, what was the rest of my generation doing? From there, we had a clear vision of building a professional network for Gen Z. We saw that other networks weren’t accurately representing Gen Z. We wanted to make a network that helps Gen Z network with each other and gain opportunities, rather than focusing on creating another jobs board. The goal was to give users profiles that really represent them.”

Pineapple finished beta testing with 10,000 users and is now ready to grow. 

Are We Near The Crypto Crash After The FTX Collapse? 

Binance, the crypto trading platform, is officially backing out of its plans to acquire FTX. The news leaves FTX on the verge of collapse. 

FTX was valued at $32 billion by private investors earlier this year. 

FTX owner Sam Bankman-Fried was looking for investors to help him solve the company’s liquidity crisis. It’s reported that he talked to venture capitalists and other investors before going to Binance.

Binance was ready to step in but decided to pull out after the discovery of mishandled customer funds and alleged investigations by US authorities. 

This caused the cryptocurrency market to fall drastically mid-week. Bitcoin traded below $16,000 for the first time since November 2020.

Microsoft Is Trying To Do What Apple Is Doing

Microsoft launched a new Windows 11 preview build to a limited number of people. The new build brings different AI-powered features that make use of the device’s Neural Processing Unit (NPU). 

NPUs are found in laptops running SQ1, SQ2, and SQ3 processors. These processors are Microsoft’s attempt to replicate the M1 and M2 chips from Apple.

It’s no secret that Microsoft has been trying for a while to get its operating system on ARM chips, but the results haven’t been as good as with M1 and M2 chips. 

It’ll be interesting to see if the new AI-focused Windows build takes Microsoft laptops closer to Macbooks.
