Nissan recalls 768k vehicles over hood latch, moisture issues

Nissan is recalling approximately 768,000 SUVs and crossovers due to issues with moisture and the hood latch.

Reddit’s first Transparency Report shows few data requests

Because it's January, companies have been dropping their latest transparency reports detailing government data requests from the second half of 2014 -- we saw Dropbox's earlier this morning, for example. Reddit, being the massively popular website that it is, is no doubt hit with data requests, but as its first-ever Transparency Report shows, they're relatively few and far between.

Tesla’s Musk: P85D speed was side effect, OTA update to make it faster

Though they face pushback when it comes to getting cars to potential owners via less-than-traditional retail means, Tesla is still on a tear. Their Model S is still in high demand, and CEO Elon Musk recently admitted they’d already sold through stock for their Model X. The Model 3 is coming soon, too. So are battery swapping stations, as well as the company speeding up the already ‘Insane’ P85D via a software upgrade. The car reaches speeds that, according to Musk, was an accident anyway.

Google's Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette spoke up this afternoon during the company's Q4 2014 earnings call about Glass. Briefly mentioning Glass as an example of a project that needed to "take a pause", Pichette continued by suggesting that Google sometimes does have to "take the tough calls."

In explaining the downs of this past quarter, Pichette spoke of two points in particular. One was the Exchange Rate between the United States and international consumers.

Pichette also mentioned Google Glass, as it were, as an example of what Google does when a project doesn't work.
