Elon Musk Says He Is Willing To Spend $6 Billion To Fight World Hunger

After so many weeks of anticipation, ‘TIME’ magazine has finally announced its 2021 ‘Person Of The Year’—and it’s none other than technology innovator and the current wealthiest man in the world, Elon Musk.

Following heavy predictions on social media regarding who would be chosen as ‘TIME’s’ official ‘Person Of The Year,’ once the choice was revealed, many were definitely not surprised that Elon Musk found himself at the very top of the list.

Pointing to his host of game-changing accomplishments in 2021, @TIME reports of just how influential Elon Musk is not only in America, but all over the world. “His startup rocket company, SpaceX  [is leading the way to America’s future in space,] His car company, Tesla, controls two-thirds of the multibillion-dollar electric-vehicle market [it created and is now worth] $1 trillion. [Which has allowed Elon Musk to now be the richest private citizen in history, with a fortune totaling $300 billion,” the magazine states.


Additionally, Musk has his hands in a host of other projects and ambitions, including “robots and solar, cryptocurrency and climate, brain-computer implants and underground tunnels to move people and freight at super speeds…[oh, and he also] dominates Wall Street.” There is also the fact that within the last few weeks, he has been giving away large chunks of his staggering wealth for the greater good.

Summarizing why he was the ultimate pick for its ‘Person Of The Year,’ ‘TIME’ wrote the following:

“In deciding each December who should be Person of the Year, we look back but also aim to look forward. We don’t yet know how fully Tesla, SpaceX and the ventures Musk has yet to think up will change our lives. At 50, he has plenty of time to write the future, his own and ours. Like it or not, we are now in Musk’s world.

For creating solutions to an existential crisis, for embodying the possibilities and the perils of the age of tech titans, for driving society’s most daring and disruptive transformations, Elon Musk is ‘TIME’s’ 2021 Person Of The Year.”

As we previously reported, Simone Biles was also named by the magazine as its ‘Athlete Of The Year.’

Netflix Increases Prices On All Streaming Plans Effective Immediately

 

 In a recent announcement, popular streaming service Netflix confirmed that it’s prices are going up!

In case you’re wondering, it’s not just some plans being hit with an increase, but all of them in both the U.S. and Canada. @CNN reports, in the U.S., the subscription price for the standard plan increases to $15.49, the basic plan rises to $9.99 and the premium plan is now $19.99. A Netflix spokesperson spoke about the latest price increases.

“We understand people have more entertainment choices than ever and we’re committed to delivering an even better experience for our members. We’re updating our prices so that we can continue to offer a wide variety of quality entertainment options. As always we offer a range of plans so members can pick a price that works for their budget,” they said.

Meanwhile, Canadian Netflix subscribers are also included in the pricing increase. In Canada, the price for Netflix’s standard plan went up $1.50 to $16.49—and the premium plan went up $2 to $20.99 Canadian dollars, although the basic plan was unchanged.

The reasoning for the company raising its prices is said to be due to market saturation and increasing subscribers. The streaming service market now has more options than ever in comparison to when Netflix originally created the marketplace back in the early 2000s.

Additionally, Netflix now has more subscribers than at any point in the company’s history. The company now counts a total of 74 million subscribers in the U.S. and Canada.

Apple Becomes First Company In The World To Be Valued At $3 Trillion

It’s official!! After months of tech and financial experts closely monitoring when it would happen, Apple is now the first company in the world to ever be valued at $3 TRILLION dollars!

Apple’s market value first crossed the $1 trillion threshold in August 2018 and passed $2 trillion in August 2020.

It was only a matter of time before massive technology company Apple reached another major milestone—and this time it involves trillions! It was recently confirmed that for the first time in history a company is valued at $3 trillion dollars…and that company is none other than Apple.  The company officially made history earlier today when its market value finally topped a $3 trillion, also making it the first publicly traded company ever to be worth that much.

Following the announcement of its new market value, shares of Apple stock briefly rose to about 3% higher than normal for an all-time record of  $182.88, surpassing the $182.85 per share it needed to be worth $3 trillion.

Additionally, in 2021 Apple shares were up nearly 35%  due to consumers increasing demand for company products. Sales for the new iPhone 13, subscriptions for Apple Music, Apple TV+, iCloud and its popular App Store all increased within the past year to help the tech giant cross the historic financial threshold.

Elon Musk Reveals That His Company Neuralink Expects To Start Implanting Brain Chips In Humans In 2022

Elon Musk Says He Is Willing To Spend $6 Billion To Fight World Hunger

Elon Musk is always on the verge of presenting the world with some of the most innovative products and creations within the technology world—but his latest advancement is something straight out of a big budget Hollywood film.

During a recent interview, Elon Musk announced that by next year he hopes that his company Neuralink will finally be able to implant brain chips in humans.

@BusinessInsider reports, Elon Musk has major plans for his brain-interface technology company Neuralink and if he actually achieves his goal it will be a total game-changer. Musk recently revealed he is quite hopeful that Neuralink will officially begin implanting brain chips into humans in 2022.  Neuralink is currently developing a microchip that would be implanted into the human brain to record and stimulate brain activity—it’s also intended to treat severe spinal-cord injuries and various neurological disorders.

Speaking about his intentions to successfully move forward with the brain chip implantation, Elon Musk stated “Neuralink’s working well in monkeys, and we’re actually doing just a lot of testing and just confirming that it’s very safe and reliable, and the Neuralink device can be removed safely. We hope to have this in our first humans, which will be people that have severe spinal-cord injuries like tetraplegics, quadriplegics next year, pending FDA approval.”

He also added that his top concern is to ensure that the quality and standards are at the highest level and that Neuralink’s “standards for implanting the device are substantially higher than what the FDA requires.”

Following the interview, Musk took to social media and tweeted a bit more information about his plans. “Progress will accelerate when we have devices in humans (hard to have nuanced conversations with monkeys) next year,” he wrote.

If you’ve been keeping up with Elon Musk’s Neuralink timeline, then you’ll recall that he has been attempting to move forward with implanting brain chips in humans for the last few years, dating back to 2019.
