Elon Musk (Should we say Grimes' Boyfriend?) Offers Future Free Rides

A google chrome extension, cryptocandy, and free tunnel rides. This week's Elon Musk News is probably some of the most random to come from the eccentric fintechpreneur yet.

This article details a new Google Chrome extension, as well as promises of free test rides in Musk’s future LA tunnel. It also recounts recent news of Musk’s Twitter trolling of Warren Buffett.

Grimes’ boyfriend, a.k.a. Elon Musk, made headlines last week for a bizarre Tesla earnings call. Now, he extends a new offer to his legion of fans and critics alike.

Also, what was that he said on Twitter about cryptocandy?

Technology as a Quality of Life Measurement

That’s right — Elon Musk and Grimes date now, having appeared at the recent Met Gala together. This comes after a breakup Musk discussed with Rolling Stone in 2017.

Grimes, for those of you who don’t know, is a prominent musician and producer. She also seems to be wearing a Tesla-inspired necklace in this picture, so she’s probably a big fan of Musk’s work.

But the best part about that Elon Musk News is that someone created a Google Chrome extension. This extension turns all instances of “Elon Musk” into “Grimes’ boyfriend”.

It’s the simple pleasures in life that make it worth living, don’t you think?

Musk to Offer Free Tunnel Rides Pending Approval

The Boring Company’s tunnel in LA will be the first in Musk’s vision and it’s almost finished. If Musk gets regulatory approval, he offered free rides for the first few months.

The tunnel stretches for two-miles beneath SpaceX’s Hawthorne, California headquarters. Theoretically, the skates can carry 8 to 16 passengers along its metal rails at around 124 mph or 200 km/h.

The Boring Company wants to expand the tunnel system in LA, as well as Washington D.C. and Chicago eventually. But regulatory approval must come first.

Musk Jokes About Cryptocandy to Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett took a shot at Musk in a Berkshire Hathaway meeting. He told him to “stay away from See’s Candies”, but Musk didn’t hesitate to fire back.

He took to Twitter, saying he was going to start a candy company and began joking about cryptocandy and Willy Wonka. He clearly referenced Warren Buffett in another tweet, mocking Buffett’s financial “moat” concept in the process.

What will next week’s Elon Musk News be and will Musk actually start a candy company?
