🗞️ News 

Tesla Recalls 3,878 Cybertrucks

Tesla has issued a recall for all 3,878 Cybertrucks due to a faulty accelerator pedal that can get stuck, potentially caused by an unapproved lubricant change. The issue can result in the pedal pad dislodging and becoming trapped in the vehicle's interior trim. The recall impacts all Cybertrucks produced from November 2023 to April 2024. Tesla is yet to report any collisions, injuries, or fatalities related to the defective pedals. The company will replace or rework the pedals on recalled vehicles at no charge to Cybertruck owners.

U.S. House Passes Bill Threatening TikTok Ban

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a revised bill that would ban TikTok distribution in the U.S. if ByteDance, the Chinese parent company, does not sell its ownership within nine months, with a potential 90-day extension. The bill is tied to a broader bill providing emergency aid for Ukraine and Israel and is expected to be voted on by the Senate. TikTok has expressed concerns that the bill would trample the free speech rights of 170 million Americans and devastate 7 million businesses

Google Fires More Employees Over Project Nimbus Protests

Sundar Pichai has fired at least 20 more Google employees for protesting the company's deal with Israel, bringing the total number of layoffs related to the protests against Project Nimbus to nearly 50. The employees were reportedly demonstrating against Google's $1.2 billion cloud computing project with the Israeli government. Google's head of security condemned the protests as disruptive and threatening, leading to the termination of these employees.

Pichai emphasized that, while Google encourages debate and discussion, disruptive behavior that makes coworkers feel unsafe is not tolerated within the company
