1. More, from another source...

Elon Musk on Friday unveiled a coin-sized prototype of a brain implant developed by his startup Neuralink to enable people who are paralyzed to operate smartphones and robotic limbs with their thoughts — and said the company had worked to “dramatically simplify” the device since presenting an earlier version last summer.

In an event live-streamed on YouTube to more than 150,000 viewers, the company staged a demonstration in which it trotted out a pig named Gertrude that was said to have had the company’s device implanted in its head two months ago; the live stream showed what Musk claimed to be Gertrude’s real-time brain activity as it sniffed around a pen. At no point, though, did he provide evidence that the signals — rendered in beeps and bright blue wave patterns on screen — were, in fact, emanating from the pig’s brain.

OooK. Good thing but why do I feel a bit uncomfortable?

2. Elon Musk implanted the idea in people's brain that his car is "green."

His car for millionaires and billionaires is not "green" - in many ways it's a tragedy - but the idea stuck anyway.

Even here, on a liberal website, we here all kinds of praises for this noxious fool.

3. Link hits a paywall

On a side note, I remember his "unbreakable glass" demo, so... not gonna be in line for this one any time soon.
