Google Maps will help you avoid Black Friday hordes

For over a year now, Google Maps and Search have been telling people when stores, bars and restaurants are likely to be busy. Now, it’s going one step further. From today, searching for a business via Google will not only show you when it’s typically crowded, but also an estimation of how busy it is right now. So if you see that a particular store is very full you can plan to head somewhere else. It’s hoped that the feature will help users avoid the worst of the crowds over Thanksgiving long weekend, and beyond.

There are a couple of other additions rolling out today. Place listings in Search and Maps will now tell you how long the typical stay is at a location, so if you people usually spend two hours at a restaurant, you can plan the rest of your day accordingly. Finally, Maps will now list more complex opening hours. “You’ll know what time to pop by the pharmacy at your local drugstore or supermarket, when food delivery begins at a nearby restaurant and what the service hours are at the auto dealership,” said Google.

Musk playfully threw out the acronym as a "scientific term" Tesla's development team used as they designed the new big rigs. The name sounds ridiculous — but the specs, if they wind up being legit, are actually pretty impressive.

Musk claims the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just five seconds, well faster than traditional diesel trucks. That's the cab by itself or with an empty trailer loaded on. Read more...
