Law firm claims Tesla is falsely advertising what its Autopilot software can do

Tesla Model S

The law firm of Hagens Berman is angling to bring a class action suit against Tesla for exaggerating the extent to which the company's self-driving software is fully autonomous. Originally spotted by Electrek, Hagens Berman has a new page up on its website where it argues that Tesla owners who paid a $10,000 premium for the company's self-driving software were misled and didn't get what they paid for.

Real-life Mario Kart crashes into police station

mario kart crash

Remember that quirky Mario Kart-inspired tour service in Japan we told you about last week? Well now in addition to being sued by Nintendo, the company — called MariCar, in case you had forgotten — is in the news thanks to one of its karts driving right into the side of a small police post. Who would have known letting untrained tourists drive a go-kart a bustling urban center would lead to such headaches? Oh, right, everyone would have known that.

Nintendo is suing a ‘Mario Kart’-inspired tour service because it hates joy

mario kart tours

Nintendo, noted inventors of playthings and haters of Bluetooth headsets, is taking a Tokyo-based sightseeing company to court in the hopes of forcing the employees to stop wearing Nintendo-themed costumes while working. The service is called MariCar — yeah, that's a little much, guys — and it provides tours of the bustling Japanese city via go-kart. Nintendo is predictably upset, and wants them to stop immediately.

Man’s plan to bomb Target stores to buy cheap stock totally backfires

target bomber

Get rich schemes come in all shapes in sizes, but leave it to the always creative "Florida Man" to come up with perhaps the worst money-making scheme in the history of mankind. Mark Charles Barnett is currently in custody and facing up to ten years in prison after planning to blow up several Target retail stores along the East Coast in an attempt to get the company's stock to dip, allowing him an opportunity to grab shares at a reduced cost. Needless to say, things didn't exactly work out as Barnett planned.

Samsung’s top exec is about to be arrested for allegedly bribing the president

Jay Y Lee Samsung Bribery Scandal

Here's something you don't see every day: a massive scandal in South Korea could see the head of the country's largest conglomerate jailed and the president removed from office.

In the latest chapter in the ongoing saga that's almost too crazy to believe, South Korea's special prosecutor's office on Tuesday confirmed to reporters that it will once again ask the court for a warrant to arrest Jay Y. Lee, the third-generation billionaire chief of the Samsung Group. Lee, a suspect in a bribery probe that reaches all the way to the president of the country, was questioned for more than 15 hours on Monday. The 48-year-old executive was apparently unable to convince authorities of his innocence, and it now appears as though is arrest is imminent.

FTC alleges Qualcomm forced Apple into iPhone LTE chip deals

Qualcomm Antitrust Probe Apple iPhone

The Federal Trade Commission has reason to believe that Qualcomm abused its position in the broadband chip manufacturing business to obtain an advantage illegally. The chip maker is said to have forced smartphone makers to agree to anti-competitive business arrangements that prevented them from using modems from Qualcomm’s competitors.

Apple is one of the high-profile Qualcomm partners that was allegedly forced to enter into an exclusive agreement for modem chips, which prevented Apple from using any other chips for several years. Only last year, Apple added a second LTE provider to its iPhone supply — that’s Intel, one of Qualcomm’s main rivals, and a company that has been vying for Apple’s business for years.

Cop tickets Michigan man for warming up his car in the driveway

weird laws

As someone who lives in Wisconsin, I can tell you that in the winter just about everyone with any sense takes a moment to start their car and leave it running for five or ten minutes before they actually depart. The same is true in Michigan, which shares Wisconsin's habit of frigid winter.

But one unlucky driver ended up on the wrong end of a moody cop near Detroit and found himself with a $128 ticket for doing what virtually every other driver in the state does whenever the weather hits the single digits: warming up his car.
