We’re in the endgame now, and the long-awaited arrival of Avengers: Endgame in theatres today has had us at io9 looking back on over a decade of Marvel Studios movies. We’ve already discussed our favourite moments from the films—but the MCU has become about so much more than the movies. It’s about the experience itself!
This week, I read through a history of everything I’ve said to Alexa, and it felt a little bit like reading an old diary. Until I remembered that the things I’ve told Alexa in private are stored on an Amazon server and have possibly been read by an Amazon employee.

It's been a big few weeks for Tesla.
Earlier this month it revealed its $US35,000 Model 3 and also announced its intention to close the majority of its stores to remain financially stable. Two weeks later it decided to keep more stores open than anticipated (and bump up prices), as well as announce the new V3 Supercharger.
