There's Going to Be an Opera About Steve Jobs




From:  http://gizmodo.com




Since Steve Jobs’ 2011 death, there’s been a glut of movies, books, documentaries, and parodies about the Apple founder’s dramatic life. If you’ve been longing for a more highbrow interpretation of the story of a successful entrepreneur who loved orange foods, good news: Steve Jobs is the focus of an upcoming opera.


The Santa Fe Opera is putting on an opera called “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs,” by composer Mason Bates and librettist Mark Campbell in 2017. According to the Los Angeles Times, it’ll get into Jobs’ personal drama as well as his turbulent career at Apple:


This actually isn’t the oddest subject matter for the opera. Contemporary opera productions have been angling for younger crowds with librettos about recent history for a while now: There was Anna Nicole, about the unfortunate life of Anna Nicole Smith, and Nixon in China, about Tricky Dick’s diplomacy.

Tesla’s Robotic Metal Snake Charger Is “For Realz”



Today, the company tweeted out a demo of something its founder and CEO Elon Musk has talked about before. At the time it sounded crazy, as most of Musk’s ideas do.

But here it is. It’s a charging station and technique that looks like it’s straight out of a science fiction movie.

Hit the play button and watch it all the way through. The snakey charging arm (called the “Solid Metal Snake” of course) makes it way to the parked Tesla Model S car automatically. No human intervention.
