UK testing new roads that wirelessly recharges your electric car as you drive
Electric vehicle manufacturers are still having a tough time to woo customers to buy them. The main reason for the same being the long charging times and the unavailability of filing station for electronic vehicles. Also, to add to this, the limitations that are there for the rate at which you can charge a battery. Well, all these problems can be gone for good, if the UK government is successful in testing a special road surface that actually charges your car as you drive.

YouTube is now better at live streaming than Twitch

The Dota 2 International Championships took place last week, determining the winner of the grand Aegis of the Immortal trophy and distributing $18.4 million in prize money among the 16 participating teams. Beyond the mythical battles and skirmishes inside the game, the tournament was also an important event in the ongoing contest between YouTube and Twitch. The International 5 (TI5) was streamed live on both services as well as inside the Dota 2 game client itself — though this year, unlike any of the previous ones, I watched almost all of it on YouTube. What’s changed?

YouTube had already served up a good number of live music concerts and political debates, but the fight against Twitch was about recruiting gamers: both fans of titles like Dota 2 and the players who streamed their match…

Sundar Pichai has just been named CEO of Google, with company co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin now focusing their time on the just-announced Alphabet. "Sundar has been saying the things I would have said (and sometimes better!) for quite some time now, and I’ve been tremendously enjoying our work together," Page wrote in today's blog post. "Sergey and I have been super excited about his progress and dedication to the company." Last October, Pichai was handed oversight of many of Google's most important businesses, so the chief executive role is a natural fit for the man who ascended through company ranks like few before him. In May, we spoke to Pichai about his plans for Android and pivotal Google services like search, advertising, Maps, and more. Now at the helm of a "slightly slimmed down Google" (in Page's words), we expect his mission to be largely unchanged. "At our core, we want to build products for everyone," he said in…
