As the price is around $20, at least 15,000 hats were sold in a month. On his Twitter page, Musk thanked his followers and shared the good news.

AI to kill us all, again

The issue connected with AI is raised again by Musk. This time, in an interview with Rolling Stone, the billionaire claimed we have only a five to 10 percent chance of success at making AI safe.

“Between Facebook, Google, and Amazon — and arguably Apple, but they seem to care about privacy — they have more information about you than you can remember,” said Musk. “There’s a lot of risk in the concentration of power. So if AGI [artificial general intelligence] represents an extreme level of power, should that be controlled by a few people at Google with no oversight?”

Tesla Semi Truck acceleration

Tesla boasts that its semi-truck can go from 0-60 MPH in five seconds flat. What’s more, the Tesla Semi, when hauling 80,000 pounds, can go from 0-60 MPH in 20 seconds.

We designed the Tesla truck to be like a bullet,” Musk said on the presentation last week.

Recently, a video of a Tesla Semi showcasing its unrivaled acceleration surfaced online.

Also, Tesla announced estimated price on its Semi website for the 300- and 500-mile versions of $150,000 and $180,000 respectively,  that is less than some pundits predicted.
