Tesla CEO, Elon Musk unveiled Tesla’s latest product in an over the top presentation at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Four houses on the old set of popular TV Series Desperate Housewives were refitted with the company’s new and almost unnoticeable solar panel roofing.
With four distinctive styles , the new roofing materials are an impressive and remarkable piece of tech aimed at making solar energy more appealing by losing the conventional ugliness comes with solar panel installation. In keeping with the Desperate Housewives theme, Tesla’s strategy seems to be to make the whole neighborhood jealous. “The key is to make solar look good,” according to Musk , “We want you to call your neighbors over and say, ‘Check out this sweet roof.'”
Using a special coating, the appearance of the tiles changes based on the angle it’s being viewed from . The coating is basically transparent when seen directly but from an angle of the street, it looks just like an average slate shingle or terra cotta style and it does a pretty good job of camouflaging the underlying solar cells. Musk said that they are working with 3M on the coating.
Elon Musk also emphasized on the durability of the panels and showed off a drop test comparison between his new tiles versus stone and clay. The solar roof was surprisingly stronger . Pulling out a nice buzzword that should be part of every tech presentation he said, “It’s never going to wear out, it’s made of quartz, it has a quasi-infinite lifetime.” Quasi-infinite baby.
A new Powerwall was also presented. It has 14kWh of storage and 7kWh of peak power draw, along with a flatter external form factor. Version 2.0 will be able to power a four bedroom house for about 24 hours on its own.
While it’s hard to get excited about a big battery that is just a little better, Musk sees the roof as the third part of his renewable energy eco-system. In his ideal world, you will power your house and charge your big battery with his pretty tiles, then you’ll plug your electric car into the big battery when you get home.
“It needs to be beautiful, affordable, and seamlessly integrated. If all of those things are true, why would you go any other direction?” he asked. And he’s right that if all of those things are true, he will have an unstoppable collection of products. But, as of now, all of those things aren’t necessarily a reality. The tiles are beautiful and seamless if they fit your style of home and he did not announce what the price will be. Regardless, it’s almost certain that the holy trinity of personal electric power will be outside most people’s price range for the considerable future.
Still, Musk is generally upfront about his targeting of the wealthy as early adopters in an effort to drive costs down. And Tesla is continuing to centralize all of the factors in electric power by partnering with SolarCity for installation. Shareholders will vote November 17th on a proposed $2 billion merger between the two companies.
2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan
If there’s anything you need more aside from food, then it’s probably data.
Civilization has gotten more digital than ever, tech has rapidly evolved – so as apps. And regardless of what uses these apps provide, most of them need our mobile data to run efficiently.
Mobile networks are aware of these, and the cost data is obviously getting less expensive than it was. Thankfully, no matter what part of the world you’re in, there’s always a data plan for everyone.
But still, there is still a way to get the most out of your data plan without unnecessary usage that you might not even be aware of.
Now forget what similar articles you might have seen before, if you follow these two simple tips, you’ll definitely notice change in your data exhaustion rate.
1 • Turn off Apps Background Data
As simple as this may seem, a lot of individuals don’t even know this. Turning off background data for some certain apps can save you a lot of money not just data only.
Reason is, some apps use your data even if you don’t have them open. It all happens in the background.
Here’s how to turn off apps background data.
First, go to Settings, then to Apps
Click whichever app you don’t need background data
Below the app details, click data usage
Click on the toggle beside the background data
You can do these for as many apps you wish not to use your data unnecessarily in the background.
2 • Install Datally
Datally is another app from Google with the initiative of conserving more data for its Android users. The app is lightweight, its latest version is just little above 5MB.
Adding to this, it comes with a bunch of useful features like data saver that allows you to block data background usage or unwanted notifications from apps with ease, and also a detailed statistics of your data usage.
My favorite feature is the Bubble that gives real-time data usage of the app you’re using at that moment
One tip though (more like an advice), if you’re at any point managing data stay far from YouTube. But if you still have the itch to watch youtube video, go for the lite version of the app, YouTube Go. Because I heard some people only get their senses back with the “your data is remaining 100MB” message. 🙄
Okay that will be all for now. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to assist.
Thanks for reading, hopefully I’ll see you in the next post.

Days of trauma and addiction ran into weeks which skipped into years, and now here I am in Chains cause I never knew I had found a friend in bondage, I never knew the So-called Pills and Portions came along with Tricks and plots to make me more miserable than I ever was…. Now, I realized that my search for Joy had led me into My END.. Oh!
