Tesla is now privately letting customers order their Model X, starting at $132,000
It's still not visible on the company's website — but if you put down a deposit ahead of time, Tesla is now letting you spec out your inaugural Model X Signature Series crossover, representing some of the very first production vehicles that roll off the line. The launch of the configurator tool, reported by Bloomberg, has been confirmed to The Verge by a Tesla spokesperson.
Pricing for this version of the X starts at $132,000 before tax credits, but the "Ludicrous Mode" speed upgrade — announced in July — will run an extra $10,000. The online tool lets customers choose their paint and interior colors, select options, and prepare for the inevitable reality of spending a very large sum of money for the only serious electric luxury...
...A Silk Road task force agent has pled guilty to stealing $820,000 in bitcoin
One of the federal officers charged with investigating the Silk Road marketplace has pled guilty to obstruction of justice and money laundering. US Secret Service agent Shaun Bridges was part of the interagency Baltimore team investigating the online marketplace and took over an administrator account on the service as part of the investigation. Ultimately, Bridges used the account to reset passwords and steal roughly 20,000 bitcoin from various wallets on the service, ultimately redeeming them for $820,000. Bridges' sentencing hearing is set for December 7th.
Bridges acted in concert with Carl Mark Force, a fellow secret service agent who pled guilty in July, after selling the movie rights to his recollections for $240,000. The two......Stephen Colbert can now give you directions in Waze
The latest celebrity voice calling out turn-by-turn directions in Waze is none other than Stephen Colbert. You'll be able to hear Colbert — set to debut on The Late Show on September 8th — until September 22nd. Yeah, it's an obvious promotion and press move, but it's a fun one if you're a Waze user. And it turns out there are many of those. "For years, I navigated the roadways using a compass, a sextant and the guidance offered by the stars," Colbert said in a statement. "But now I can just listen to my own dulcet tones instructing me on Waze." Waze is also adding Neil Patrick Harris and Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots as other voice options.
In other, probably-more-useful news, Waze has also recently added a feature that......iPhone hit Alto’s Adventure is finally coming to Android
First launched on iOS in February, snowboarding game Alto's Adventure has proven to be one of the best mobile games in quite some time, thanks to its fluid gameplay, beautiful visuals, and incredibly chill vibe. And soon, you won't need an iPhone to see what all the fuss is about: an Android port of Alto's Adventure is currently in the works. The port is being handled by Super Stickman Golf developer Noodlecake Studios, and while it doesn't have a specific release date yet, it shouldn't be too long now. "We are hoping to have the game out soon enough," the studio explains. When it does launch, it'll be available for both Android and Kindle Fire devices.

Google revamped its logo today, and reactions to the change are already pouring in. But the company also gave us a glimpse of what else might have been. In the middle of a near-1,500-word blog post about the news sits an unassuming picture of Google employees who are weighing a number of different designs, all presumably riffs on the Google logo that didn't make the cut.
There are some attempts at making the typeface all lowercase, one that looks very close to the design that Google just abandoned, and a few that are close to what we now know is the real thing. Perhaps the most radical is the one all the way to the far right — a more graphical spin on the logo where where "Google" is spelled out in solid circles and blocks.

In December 2013, Instagram introduced Instagram Direct, which let users send private photo and video messages to each other for the first time. But while its tiny inbox icon sits at the top of the app, Direct has often felt like an island within the larger Instagram app. You couldn’t share images from your feed using Direct, or respond to a photo with a photo, or start a conversation using text. But as of today, you can do all three, as part of a massive overhaul of Direct that makes Instagram feel like a full-featured messaging app for the first time.

Motorola's launching preorders for its flagship Moto X Pure Edition beginning tomorrow. A just-posted tweet reveals that this first preorder wave will be open to US customers only; the new flagship Moto X is known as the Moto X Style elsewhere in the world.
A previous (and since deleted) tweet suggested preorders would open up on September 3rd, but it seems Motorola is ready to go a day earlier. The Moto X Pure Edition supports all major wireless carriers in the United States and starts at $399. That price can go up depending on Moto Maker customizations and the amount of storage you want; keep in mind the new Moto X supports microSD cards up to 128GB in size.

J.K. Rowling confirms that Harry Potter's son has been sorted into Gryffindor
Time flies, even in the wizarding world. On Tuesday, J.K. Rowling reminded us all that Harry Potter's eldest son, James Sirius Potter, is starting his first day at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Because it wouldn't do to leave Potter fans hanging for details, she also confirmed that the Sorting Hat put James Potter into Gryffindor as Hufflepuff Head Boy Teddy Lupin looked on, "disappointed."

Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie is tipping his hat to "Fly Me to the Moon" crooner Frank Sinatra with Tuesday's release of tribute song "Death of a Bachelor."
The musical tribute, Urie wrote on Instagram, "expresses the bittersweet (but mostly sweet) end of an era. A look back at a part of my life now deceased. An 'It’s A Wonderful Life'-esque look into a possibly different future. But mostly an appreciation for the present."

As expected, MTV's 2015 VMAs drew lots of eyeballs. But what's true more than ever this year is that fewer of them consumed VMA content on actual televisions.
And that's not because the network didn't try to lure people back to the TV.

This was the first year the show was streamed across all 10 Viacom networks — MTV, MTV2, VH1, VH1 Classic, CMT, Logo, BET, Centric, Comedy Central, TV Land. That effort drew 9.8 million total viewers. But last year, the first airing of the award show garnered 8.3 million on MTV alone

You probably weren't expecting your hair styler to have three sensors that monitor temperature, and a specially-designed handle that ensures you don't damage your hair by applying too much pressure.
At ghd, whose tri-zone technology does just that, science and technology are as integral to attaining perfectly-styled hair as a great hairdresser is.
That's why ghd's team of scientists, engineers and innovators work together in Cambridge, one of the UK's premier innovation hubs, to create the next generation of hair stylers that arm hairdressers with the perfect tools to craft great hair.
To get a closer look at how ghd specially engineers hair stylers, we sat down with Dr. Tim Moore, the company's CTO, to talk about how ghd uses a scientifi...James Bond author says he's 'mortified' about Idris Elba comments
Anthony Horowitz, the decorated British author who sparked criticism with his remarks that Idris Elba is "too street" to play James Bond, tweeted an apology Tuesday, saying he was "mortifed" that his comments had caused offense.
Horowitz said Elba's "gritty" performance as a Detective Chief Inspector in BBC series Luther as the inspiration behind his remarks. He was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire last year and was chosen by the Ian Fleming estate to write Trigger Mortis, the latest in the series of James Bond books.

A 41-year-old man was shot to death by police in San Antonio, Texas, on Friday after he appeared to raise both hands in the air, according to bystander video recorded from a distance
Police were responding to a domestic disturbance call when the suspect, Gilbert Flores was cornered by police in his front yard. In the video, he appears to raise both hands in the air, though his left hand is obscured from view by a telephone pole.
