Toyota’s RAV4 EV is quite a looker, and Tesla powers it

Tesla and Toyota are pretty much in perfect harmony now with the RAV4 EV debuted at the LA Auto Show. Current models can go travel 100 miles on single charge, but Toyota is currently fine-tuning the 2012 RAV4 EV to get that 100 mile battery life in all conditions, and even more than just that. As for Tesla’s involvement, they pretty much have everything to do with designing the SUV; the power train, battery, electronics, electric motor, gearbox and software.

Twitter Adds “Who To Follow” To All Users, Names And Tab Still In Testing

Apparently Twitter has gone out of their way tonight (that start is just not well-written) and released the “Who To Follow” page to the public. The URL is accessible to any Twitter user, but only a few thousand as it seems get access to the tab, which either has the name of “People”, “Who To Follow”, or “Directory”; the latter is what I see in my account @stefanetienne.

The main purpose it seems of this new trick up Twitter’s wing is to find users that you want to follow, calculated by the tweets you publish, for example tweets I’ve made about gaming have directed me to companies like Bungie and Machinima commentators like MuzzaFuzza, as well as the users that you follow and follow you.

Although most of these tools had already existed in past forms, this particular incarnation is different from all the others, because it completes the new site design and integrates deeply with one thing: getting you to be more active on the site by finding more accounts that are related to your interests.

But it’s a great idea.

iOS 4.2.1 Gold Master Now Available For Apple Devs, Hopefully Final

Hopefully, this is the final Gold Master version of iOS 4.2.1, which should be inbound to iPhones, iPads, and iPods soon enough. Reported fixes is the final clamp on that Wi-Fi bug and a few other improvements for members of the Apple Dev Center. If you know a dev, ask him/her for iOS 4.2.1. If you don’t know anyone, then try not to get it off BitTorrent or something and wait for the release.

Like you’d ever listen to that.

Steve Wozniak: Android Will Beat iPhone, In The Long Run (update: they’re wrong)

Please approach this articles with precision. That means, if you’re an Apple investor, tear your hair out and stare at your multiple monitors with disbelief, and if you’re a regular reader, well, enjoy.

Apparently in an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf (pretty cool, huh?), Steve Number 2 says that Android phones, with the  “more features,” than the iPhone, will be like the PC has been to the Mac: absolutely squishy, you got pwned, you have little market share, etc. While talking about the iPhone however, Woz claimed that the iPhone “has very few weak points,” and that there “aren’t any real complaints and problems,” but still, it would be the more user appeal in the long run that would lure users to the Android side. The Dark Side, if you will.

Oh, and as for Nokia, Woz has this to say: a “brand from a previous generation.” Zing!

Update: And Nilay Patel, whom I’ve meet at a press event earlier this month, got an interview scored with Steve Woz, and Woz states that he was misquoted. *_*

Google adds online Docs editing to both Android and iOS devices

It’s about time. The famous Google Docs never, ever had a mobile editor, which severely pissed off many users, including myself. Turns out today people can quit their whining and experience basic (yet the best essentials) of online Google docs editing on iOS 3.0+ (including iPad) and Android 2.2+ mobile devices. A special feature for Android users is the speech-to-text feature first built into 2.1 Eclair (yet not supported on 2.1. Weird, right?), which let’s you jam out GDocs with your voice. According to the Google Mobile Blog, the editor will roll out in the next few days.
