Everyone knows that Google is working on self-driving cars, but there’s going to be another group competing with them because Volvo and Uber are now building autonomous cars. The two companies signed an agreement to establish a joint project—along with coughing up a combined $300M investment—that will incorporate all the latest developments in autonomously driving cars onto a base vehicle that will be manufactured by Volvo. Uber is going to purchase the base vehicle from Volvo and add their own self-developed autonomous driving system, while Volvo is using the same base vehicle for their own autonomous car strategy. Ultimately, it only makes sense that the two companies will compare notes and integrate all the features that work into one functional vehicle that can drive itself. We don’t know how successful the partnership will be, but we do know that more people working on self-driving cars means we’re one step closer to a stress free commute home.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
