Tesla fans are about to get what they really want from the company (TSLA)

Tesla Roadster Drive 2016

Tesla is poised to have a very big 2017.

Apart from the carmaker’s surging $50-billion market capitalization, which on the back of a $300-plus-share price has vaulted the company’s valuation above Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Ford, Tesla aims to launch its mass-market Model 3 in the next few months.

The automaker is also bringing its Gigafactory online in Nevada, preparing for the launch of its solar-roof product, and expanding its Tesla energy business. 

All eyes will be on the Model 3, which is slated to be priced at $35,000 before incentives and come with a range of at least 215 miles on a single charge. But Tesla will also introduce an electric, possibly self-driving semi truck in September. CEO Elon Musk says a pickup will follow in 18-24 months.

That’s a lot, but for true Tesla lovers, the really exciting news is that Tesla will most likely commit to a new Roadster — a convertible sports car that will take the automaker back to its roots. It sexy, thrilling, go-fast-with-all-electric-style roots.

I’ve always been an unabashed fan of the Roadster. I’ve driven all of Tesla’s vehicles, but the Roadster is the one that really grabs me: it did the first time around and again just over a year ago when we got reacquainted

Awkward love

My Roadster love is awkward of course because the car wasn’t a proper Tesla, unlike the clean-sheet designs of the Model S sedan and the Model X SUV. The Roadster was built from vehicle “sleds” created by England’s Lotus, which were then finished by Tesla in California and outfitted with Tesla’s electric battery packs and drivetrains. 

That said, the Lotus chassis combined with Tesla’s tech was a juicy combination. The Roadster Sport, the final version of the vehicle that was produced before Lotus stopped supplying platforms and Tesla shifted to focusing on the Model S, was blisteringly fast (0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds) and a kick to drive. It lacked much in the way of in-vehicle tech, the steering was precise but heavy, there was barely room for two people and a tote bag, and the ride was pretty stiff. But sweet lord was it ever fun!

“Speed” and “Tesla” have always been two great tastes that go great together. It was with the fast Roadster that Tesla effectively rebranded the whole idea of the electric-car-as-glorified-golf-cart — and wound velocity in the company’s DNA. Ever since the Roadster, Tesla’s have been fast. The P100D Model S is, by 0-60 mph time (2.3 seconds), the fastest production vehicle in the world. And it has four doors and two trunks.

Tesla D Speed

The Model X is also quick, but it’s an SUV. And frankly, there are plenty of us still out here who want our fast cars to be fast sports cars that look like sports cars.

That’s why the time has more than come for the new Roadster — or whatever Tesla wants to call it, as long as it has two doors and seating for only a pair of people. A sports car isn’t supposed to be practical. That’s the entire point.

Not what Silicon Valley wants

I will admit that a super sexy Tesla sports car isn’t exactly what Silicon Valley is calling for right now. Between Google’s self-driving podmobiles, whatever Apple might be up to, and Uber’s autonomous taxi fleet, the action now appears to be with incredibly boring platforms that are more about riding than driving. 

Tesla is also getting a little too psyched about semi-trucks and pickups. These are cool vehicles, but they aren’t Ferraris or Lamborghinis. It bears pointing out that Musk was once the owner of a McLaren F1  hypercar, so we have a sense of where his heart might be when it comes to cars. I sort of wonder if he’s ever even driven a truck.

Not that a Tesla supercar would edge out the pickups. Tesla will probably produce something on the order of 100,000 vehicles in 2017 and maybe twice that in 2018 (although Musk is pushing for 500,000). There’s probably a market for a few thousand sports cars with the Tesla badge. Satisfying anyone who wants one wouldn’t be a mighty lift. Just think of the bumper stickers on the Model X’s: “My other, sexier car is a Tesla, too.”

Make it wild

Ferrari 488GTB 40

The great thing about Tesla is that its vision of a fossil-fuel-free transportation future has never been so virtuous that it excludes the breathtaking experience of zipping into a corner at high speed and coming out just as fast. Musk always knew this, but in recent years, as the Roadster has receded into fond memory, it’s been less of a Tesla priority. That takes nothing away from Ludicrous Mode performance in Tesla’s current cars. But as I’ve noted, Ludicrous gets old fast in a family sedan.

I’d personally like to see Tesla do something wild with a new sports car. Something flamboyant and supercar-ish. Spoilers and needless hood scoops and air dams and such. Make a fast car that really looks fast. Make it a tad tasteless. Make it something that would look defiant when parked next to a Ferrari or a Lambo.

But even if that doesn’t happen, I welcome whatever does. As will the many, many Tesla fans who’ve been waiting for a new Roadster.

The CEO of a billion-dollar brand says he doesn't hire people with a red-flag quality that's 'the enemy of everything'

neil blumenthal

If you’re heading into a job interview planning to self-deprecate and talk about all your past screw-ups, you’re probably not going to get hired.

On the flip side, if you’re heading there thinking that you really deserve the interviewer’s job, you’re probably not going to get hired, either.

That’s especially true if you’re interviewing at billion-dollar glasses company Warby Parker.

The company’s co-CEO, Neil Blumenthal, recently spoke with Jessica Alba, actress and founder of household products company Honest, at the Success Makers Summit in April, hosted by American Express OPEN.

Here’s what Blumenthal said:

“We’re actually always trying to screen out for entitlement. Because we find that that is the enemy of everything.

“It creates unrealistic expectations; it hurts collaboration, which … is like the core to the modern workplace. It impacts learning in general. If you’re entitled, you likely think you know more than you do.”

In fact, in a 2015 LinkedIn post, Blumenthal went so far as to call entitlement the “root of all evil in a company.”

Alba asked Blumenthal exactly how he screens for entitlement and he admitted: “We’re still learning.”

But he added:

“Sometimes we’ll try to see what pronouns people are using: ‘I’ versus ‘we.’ Because every piece of work these days, no one does anything in isolation.

“So during an interview, you’re supposed to be selling yourself, but do they at least give some credit to other people that they may have worked with?”

Interestingly, Ra’el Cohen, vice president of design and product development at online bra company ThirdLove, previously told Business Insider something similar.

Specifically, her team will ask candidates, “What was the last mistake that you and your last team made, and what did you learn from it?”

ThirdLove is looking for candidates to use the word “I” instead of “we,” meaning they’re taking responsibility for the mess-up instead of blaming it on others.

Earlier in the conversation between Alba and Blumenthal, Alba explained why she dislikes entitled employees (though she didn’t use that word specifically): “You have to learn and you have to make mistakes, because that’s when you actually grow as a person.”

An existential threat looms behind Mark Zuckerberg's quest to kill the smartphone (FB)

Mark Zuckerberg F8

To understand why Mark Zuckerberg is obsessed with killing the smartphone, you have to go back to a rare public testimony he gave in a Dallas courtroom earlier this year.

Zuckerberg was there to testify in a lawsuit between game maker ZeniMax and Oculus, the virtual reality startup Facebook purchased for $2 billion in 2014.

While he was on the stand, Zuckerberg was asked to elaborate on the implications of Facebook missing out on the smartphone revolution. Zuckerberg had started Facebook in 2004, just after mobile phones were already starting to catch on.

“Because of that, Facebook hasn’t really been involved in designing the operating systems and phones,” he explained. “Companies like Google and Apple have done that instead. And that in some cases meant we haven’t been able to design the experiences that we hoped to deliver for our community.”

Here’s what Zuckerberg was getting at: the world of mobile phones that Facebook has built its $415 billion ad business on is owned and controlled by Apple and Google, not Facebook. Apple and Google are the landlords, and Facebook is just a tenant.

The promise of augmented reality

Mark Zuckerberg AR glasses F8

It’s with that context behind it that Facebook is now betting its future on augmented reality, the nascent technology that promises to overlay virtual information onto the real world and eventually replace smartphones with something like a pair of glasses or even contact lenses.

At Facebook’s annual developer conference this past week, Zuckerberg unveiled a platform for the Facebook app’s camera that can let outside developers create AR effects, like a video game character over a person’s face or virtual dolphins swimming around a bowl of cereal.

The end goal of AR, Zuckerberg said, is to have a pair of stylish glasses that can display everything from directions and entertainment to information about the objects you’re looking at, like the cost of a bottle of wine, directly in front of your eyes. And he wants all of it to be powered by Facebook.

“We see the beginning of a new platform,” he said.

Owning what comes after the phone

Magic Leap

It’s easy and obvious to say that Facebook’s push into AR and cameras now is a reaction to Snapchat, the rival social networking service with its signature filters and AR effects. And that is probably true.

But the much larger motivation behind Facebook’s investments in virtual and augmented reality is simple: to not miss out on the next big wave of technology that comes after smartphones. That’s why Facebook paid billions for Oculus, is working on its own AR hardware and brain-controlled sensors, and is opening up its AR camera effects to developers now.

If Facebook can build the AR equivalent of Apple’s iOS operating system for iPhones, it has a shot at controlling the platform on which every other company will have to build AR hardware.

Imagine a future post-phone world in which, instead of Apple or Google, Facebook set the ground rules about what apps can and can’t do on its platform. Like Apple’s App Store, Facebook could take a cut of all transactions that occur within its AR platform. And Facebook would know more about its billions of users — what they’re seeing and interacting with in the real world — than any company in history.

If we can build it

Facebook would certainly like to own both the dominant hardware and the software in a truly AR world, but if it can’t crack the hardware, it wants to at least be one of the few winning software providers.

“If we can build an interesting business building hardware, that’s great,” Facebook chief technology officer Mike Schroepfer recently told Business Insider about the company’s AR ambitions. “But if that doesn’t work and it just creates an ecosystem and we have an awesome network to run on top of it, that’s great too.”

But as Apple, Microsoft, Magic Leap, and others are racing to make consumer AR a reality, the competition is already fierce. And with its hundreds of billions of dollars and years of hardware expertise, Apple already looks best poised to win the AR hardware race.

That’s why Facebook is firing on all of its AR cylinders now, even when it says that consumer adoption of AR is potentially decades away. The existential threat to Facebook’s business is that if it doesn’t manage to build the dominant AR platform of the future, it runs the risk of repeating its history with mobile phones all over again.

RANKED: The 22 most prominent venture capital investors in Europe in 2017

unicorns protesters ttip berlin germany demonstration thumbs up

2017 is a time of serious political upheaval — but in the startup world, life must go on.

Like the US, Europe has been shaken by populism over the past year, with Britain voting to leave the European Union in June 2016. The vote rocked the London tech community, widely regarded as the epicentre of the tech industry on the continent, with concerns ranging from potential hiring difficulties to the availability of venture capital to help startups grow.

But the tech industry hasn’t ground to a halt because of it. Startups need to sustain themselves and continue to grow — backed by a network of venture capital firms providing funding and guidance.

Using data provided by tech and venture analysis firm Dealroom, Business Insider has ranked the 22 most prominent venture capital investors operating in Europe in 2017. So from Benchmark to Balderton Capital, here are the highest-profile VC firms in Europe today on the hunt for the next Spotify or Skype.

A note on methodology: Unlike in previous years, where our European VC firm rankings have focused only on fund size, 2017’s formula takes into account a number of factors, including deal activity, number of investments, number of exits, value of exits, European portfolio size, capital efficiency, and more. For the first time, the ranking also includes firms based outside of Europe that invest in the continent, as well as angel investors. You can read more about Dealroom’s methdology here.

22. Benchmark

San Francisco firm Benchmark has invested in everyone from Snapchat to Quora. Launched in 1995, its European investments include Citymapper and French social network Zenly. (It also opened a European arm in 2000, which was spun out independently as Balderton Capital in 2007.)

21. Creandum

Swedish firm Creandum focuses on Seed and Series A funding, investing in 61 companies to date. Its portfolio includes Spotify, iZettle, and Klarna, and it has offices in Stockholm, Berlin, and San Francisco.

20. Greylock Partners

Greylock Partners is a Silicon Valley VC firm that invests in both consumer and enterprise tech companies, including Facebook, LinkedIn, Dropbox, and Medium. Since its 1965 launch, 170 of its portfolio companies have IPO’d, with investments including Wonga and Facebook.

Scott Pruitt came to Earth Day Texas, and the whole thing was pretty weird

scott pruitt earth day texas

DALLAS — Scott Pruitt has emerged as an unusually controversial Environmental Protection Agency administrator, a Cabinet-level position that historically hasn’t held the name recognition that other top posts have.

As Oklahoma’s attorney general, Pruitt sued the agency he now leads 14 times, accusing President Barack Obama’s EPA of over regulation.

Nearly 800 former EPA officials urged the Senate to block Pruitt’s nomination in February, because they said his record and public statements suggest he doesn’t agree with underlying principles of environmental laws.

President Donald Trump’s proposed federal budget makes deep cuts to the EPA, but also requests upping Pruitt’s security detail to increase the number of agents and provide 24/7 protection. Henry Barnet, the director of EPA’s criminal enforcement office, told E&E News that Pruitt’s current security isn’t enough.

The EPA chief’s polarization was on full display Friday.

First, the organizers of Earth Day Texas didn’t confirm when EPA administrator Scott Pruitt was going to speak at the event until two hours before he was scheduled to appear.

He was late, and the audience of several dozen people had to move to an auditorium in the basement. While waiting to move down there, two protesters unfurled a banner and started chanting, “science not superstition,” accusing Pruitt of being the wrong choice for the job.

The crowd, placated for the wait with wine, beer, and snacks, looked on unperturbed, not joining in the chants.

When he arrived to speak nearly an hour late, Pruitt took the stage with Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton for a “fireside chat.” As the administrator spoke, his staff and security detail of eight-or-so people watched the crowd, positioned on the edges and in the aisles of the auditorium.

The two discussed Pruitt’s “back to basics” approach to managing the EPA that focuses on the agency’s “core mission” of protecting the nation’s air, land, and water.

“Regulation — and this is a very profound statement — regulation ought to make things regular,” Pruitt said. “I think what’s happened over the last several years is we’ve been told as a country that we have to choose between jobs and protecting the environment, and I think that’s a false choice.”

About a third of the way through the talk, three protesters interrupted. One by one, they stood up and accused Pruitt of committing environmental atrocities.

Each time, a member of Pruitt’s team removed the demonstrators from the auditorium, either by telling them they had to leave and walking by their side until they were out the back doors, or linking arm-in-arm to steer them out.

Sitton told the protesters that they were unfairly keeping everyone else from listening, and that they would get a chance to ask questions at the end.

“This administration doesn’t believe in climate change or global warming. You’re gutting the EPA!” the third protester yelled. “You are putting everyone’s life at risk! You’re condemning them to a life of hell! How much money are you being paid to do this? You’re a monster!”

Some in the crowd incredulously asked, “Really?”

“You know, I told you that Earth Day Texas was quite intense,” Pruitt said, and many in the audience clapped, laughing.

Two audience members were allowed to ask questions, and Pruitt answered them, but then his staff terminated the event.

He only spoke with Sitton onstage for 22 minutes.

And then an event host asked the crowd not to leave the theater until Pruitt left.

Most people waited a minute, but then attempted to exit. The event host and Pruitt’s security blocked the doors, keeping people from leaving. The crowd voiced their frustration, and after a few more minutes, were finally allowed to leave.

Google car spin-off says Uber is involved in a 'cover up' and is 'hiding a device'

travis kalanick uber

Uber’s star engineer Anthony Levandowski was “enticed” to copy valuable technology from Google and is now involved in a “cover up” to hide a device based on that technology, according to a new legal filing by Google’s self-driving car unit Waymo.

The device in question is a Lidar unit, the radar sensor that self-driving cars use to map their surroundings. 

Uber allowed Waymo to inspect two Lidar devices after it was sued in February for allegedly stealing Waymo’s Lidar design. 

But Waymo now says there is an entirely different version of the device that Uber is hiding somewhere. 

In a court filing on Friday, Waymo claims that it found evidence that Uber has “misrepresented” its Lidar designs to the court after it deposed several Uber engineers who admitted to having a second prototype. Uber’s case so-far has been to argue that its Lidar design, nicknamed Fuji, is entirely different from Waymo’s. 

missing LidarWhile Waymo contends that Uber has another Lidar unit, an Uber spokesperson told Business Insider that the initial concept never even made it to the point where it could have infringed on a patent and it was never a device or a secret. Furthermore, the abandoned design is not the one Uber is currently developing for use on its self-driving cars, an Uber spokesperson said. 

Banned

Waymo wants Levandowski, a former Google engineer who now runs to Uber’s self-driving car program, to be banned from running the unit that he remains in charge of to this day. A hearing for the preliminary injunction is scheduled for May 3.

“Uber has taken, copied, and used Waymo’s technology,” Waymo’s lawyers wrote in the heavily-redacting filing. “This, along with Uber’s subsequent cover-up and violations of this Court’s orders, shows the need for an injunction in this case.”

The trade-secrets case is shaping up to be one of the most significant and closely watched battles in Silicon Valley in years, pitting two of the world’s most powerful companies, and former partners, against each other.

Levandowski, who was also deposed by Waymo, took the Fifth Amendment to avoid self-incrimination on every question except six basic questions about his name and education.

Adidas is getting serious about making sneakers from ocean waste

Adidas ocean plastic sneakers

Adidas is getting serious about its sustainability initiatives and showing that going green doesn’t have to make customers blue.

With new ocean-inspired coloring, Adidas is releasing “Parley” versions of its most popular Boost running shoes: the Ultraboost, Ultraboost X, and Ultraboost Uncaged. 

Parley is Adidas’ partner in the Parley A.I.R Strategy, which turns ocean plastic waste into thread that is woven into running shoes. Each shoe uses an average of 11 plastic bottles per pair and incorporates recycled plastic into the shoe’s laces, heel webbing, heel lining, and sock liner covers.

“The new additions to the adidas x Parley collection are another step in our journey to creating one million pairs of Ultraboost from up-cycled marine plastic,” Mathias Amm, a product category director at Adidas, said in a statement.

Adidas previously released an ocean plastic waste sneaker, but it was a limited release and more of a proof of concept. These new Boost sneakers are a step forward as Adidas seeks to use more sustainable materials moving forward in its regular offerings.

Adidas reiterated its commitment to green materials in its recently released sustainability report, which highlighted that the company is on track to use 100% sustainable cotton by next year. It also said that it saved 70 million plastic shopping bags by switching to paper bags in its stores, and it detailed a commitment to make the new Adidas MLS uniforms with Parley recycled plastic.

The shoes will be available for sale online and in select Adidas stores May 10.
