2002 Memories From Before Birth | BimmerLife
We couldn’t even count how many 2002s were on the lawn at Legends of the Autobahn and in the Festorics corral during the 2018 Monterey Car Week. But easier to count might have been how many owned-since-new 2002s were there. Tom Jones drove one such car to both Legends and Festorics. via Pocket

Thieves steal a Tesla Model S by hacking the entry fob - Engadget Oct 2018
"A Tesla owner who recorded thieves stealing his Model S by hacking the passive entry system has published the video on YouTube so we can all watch (and learn). It shows the crooks using a tablet to apparently capture the passive signal from his keyfob, then using the data to open the vehicle. "

"Tesla has recently implemented features to deter passive entry theft, but the owner sheepishly admitted he didn't use them. Namely, he failed to activate the "PIN to drive" feature that requires a further code before you can drive off. He also left passive entry -- which opens the car when you walk up to it with the fob -- enabled, even though it was parked outside. He also didn't use a "Faraday pouch" to store the fob, which would have prevented the thieves from nabbing the signals."

Renault Italy taps Messenger chatbot to drive SUV sales | Mobile Marketer
Renault Italy is selling a limited edition of its latest Captur SUV through a chatbot on Facebook Messenger, which has 1.3 billion users worldwide. The campaign includes a Japanese-style animated series on Instagram Stories that shows the nighttime journey of two men in Tokyo who meet a "mysterious" character who can help buy one of the 100 SUVs available, Adweek reported.
Viewers of the "Tokyo Stories" series can connect with a chatbot of the salesman character, an animated man wearing a red suit, to pre-order the Japanese-inspired vehicle. Renault Italy rolled out the campaign on Oct. 10 and received two orders via the bot within 24 hours, according to The Drum.

Waze Carpool Ridesharing Available Nationwide |
Waze Carpool, the Google-owned app that connects people with rides, announced Wednesday (Oct. 10) that the service is now available nationwide.
In a blog post, Waze Carpool said it now has 110 million monthly active users globally, and that every month, more than 12 million Waze users report over 60 million incidents. But with traffic getting worse, it has expanded its carpool service after testing it over the past few months.
“We’ve all experienced that moment when you’re sitting helplessly in traffic, shaking your head at all the drivers around you, wondering why they had to ruin your commute. Well, guess what? Those same drivers are looking at you … and blaming you,” wrote CEO Noam Bardin in the blog post. “The cause of our current congestion crisis is simple: Too many people are driving alone, in the same direction, at the same time. We all share part of the blame for creating traffic, and therefore, we all share a responsibility to do something about it.”

In brief: Go-Jek launches fuel delivery
Go-Jek, in partnership with Indonesia’s oil major Pertamina, has launched an on-demand fuel-delivery service. Called Go-Pertamina, it brings fuel to users from the nearest Pertamina gas station.
The service is available in South and Central Jakarta from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. It does not serve orders on toll roads, basements, or other enclosed areas. Given that Go-Jek has a large network of drivers who need to top up their fuel regularly, they could become some of Go-Pertamina’s biggest users.

Did Uber Steal Google’s Intellectual Property? | The New Yorker
Levandowski and his team were asked to map a million miles of U.S. roads within a year. They finished in nine months, and then set up an enormous office in Hyderabad, India, to begin mapping every street on earth. (Today, Google Maps is the dominant navigation app, used daily by more than thirty million people.) Levandowski and his boss, Sebastian Thrun—another Grand Challenge alumnus—then proposed to Google’s leadership that the next step was developing self-driving cars. In 2009, a small team of engineers, led by Thrun, was assigned to a secret self-driving-car division, which was given the code name Project Chauffeur. Levandowski’s focus would be hardware development.
