The next Microsoft CEO should be Elon Musk

There's no better time than now for Microsoft to turn the way they do business on its head - who better to replace retiring CEO Steve Ballmer than entrepreneur extraordinaire Elon Musk?

Tesla’s Elon Musk says SuperCharging network will be tripled

With a gasoline-powered car, refueling is as simple as pulling into a gas station and waiting a few minutes for the gas take to be refilled. Things are a bit trickier with electric vehicles, however, which require charging stations rather than gas stations. Tesla has been rolling out it SuperCharger network over many months, having added six in California back in October, for example. At tonight's D11 conference, Musk made an announcement early: Tesla's SuperCharger network will be tripled.
