Tesla has opened a massive next-generation electric vehicle charging station in Las Vegas that combines the company's core products into one sustainable energy ecosystem, fulfilling a vision CEO Elon Musk laid out nearly three years ago.
The new V3 Supercharger, which supports a peak rate of up to 250 kilowatts, is designed to dramatically cut charging times for its electric vehicles. Tesla unveiled its first V3 Supercharger in March at its Fremont, Calif. factory. A second V3 Supercharger is located in Hawthorne, Calif., near the Tesla Design Studio. Both of these [...]
Measuring in at just 84 x 48mm and weighing only 335g, the new Fujinon 50mm f/3.5mm R is now Fujifilm's most compact and lightweight pancake lens yet.
When paired with the new GFX 100 medium format snapper, the lens is equivalent to 40mm (35mm equivalent) due to the camera's crop factor, making it ideal for street photography. Moreover, the lens will fit so snuggly against the body of the GFX 100 that you'll barely even know it's there.

Adam Neumann, the co-founder and chief executive of the international real estate co-working startup, WeWork, has reportedly cashed out of more than $700 million from his company ahead of its initial public offering.
The size and timing of the payouts, made through a mix of stock sales and loans secured by his equity in the company, is unusual considering that founders typically wait until after a company holds its public offering to liquidate their holdings.
The final hours for China's Tiangong-2 space station are at hand, as the 8-ton piece of hardware will fall to earth, or rather sea, some time in the next 20 hours or so in a controlled deorbit manuever. But unlike with its predecessor, it isn't a mystery where this particular piece of space debris is going to fall.
Tiangong-2 is a small space station that was put into orbit in 2016 to test a number of China's orbital technologies; it was originally planned to stay up there for two years, but as many a well-engineered piece of space kit [...]

While images of the lens leaked online a day before the official launch, Fujifilm has taken the wraps off the new XF 16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR lens, and it seems this optic could be one of the best Fujinon lenses yet.
Weighing in at just 440g, the lens is 40% lighter than a similar lens for a full-frame camera, according to Fujifilm. There's also 5x zoom, making it an ideal all-rounder.
However, the headline feature for the XF 16-80mm f/4 R is its staggering six stops of image stabilization. That makes it perfect for low-light conditions, when the need [...]
