Tesla Model 3’s driver-facing camera ‘does more than just monitor passengers’

A hacker has revealed the key events that the Model 3’s driver-facing camera is designed to detect – and it appears to do much more than Tesla CEO Elon Musk has so far admitted.

Musk in April confirmed that one use of the driving-facing camera, which is located in the center of the rear-view mirror of all Model 3s, would be used for monitoring passengers in its future network of robotaxis. The camera could be used to dissuade passengers from vandalizing vehicles or at least capture evidence of such acts. 

At that stage the camera had been inactive in all Model 3s, but in June, some three years after the model first hit the road, Tesla issued a software update that activated the camera.

As Electrek reported at the time, Tesla allowed some Model 3 drivers to enable

New Drought Monitor map shows extreme dry conditions growing in Calif.

The new federal Drought Monitor map shows that localized drought conditions are increasing in Northern California.

The Sept. 22 map had 3% of the state in extreme drought while the Sept. 29 map released Thursday shows 13%.

In the Bay Area, the map reveals that drought conditions range from moderate to severe.

The Drought Monitor, a mechanism to measure drought that’s mainly used in agriculture, is a joint effort of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. A map is released each week with drought conditions across the country, indexing everything from groundwater storage to river levels. The factors California state water managers watch most closely are precipitation totals and reservoir and snowpack levels.

The presence of drought on the map is no surprise — especially in Northern California. While Southern California saw above-average rainfall

Dell S3220DGF Gaming Monitor review

Dell S3220DGF Gaming Monitor specs

Screen Size: 32 inches
Resolution: 2560 × 1440
Refresh Rate: 165 Hz
Inputs: DisplayPort, HDMI, USB, 3.5 mm audio
Dimensions: 28.0 x 18.5 x 9.8 inches

The Dell S3220DGF Gaming Monitor doesn’t settle the question of whether you really need a 32-inch gaming monitor. However, it’s a good argument that there’s some value in the proposition. This bright, colorful, curved display is a worthwhile accessory for any PC with quad HD output, provided you have the desk space to accommodate it — and the money to afford it.

With easy setup and plenty of ways to plug in, connecting the Dell S3220DGF to your desktop is effortless (provided you can accommodate its large curve and hefty display stand), and switching between presets for various game genres is just as easy.

AOC C27G2ZU review: Great value 240Hz G-Sync and FreeSync gaming monitor

AOC C27G2ZUSource: Rich Edmonds / Windows Central

Traditionally, if you had an AMD GPU, you’d buy a FreeSync monitor. The same with an NVIDIA GPU and G-Sync. Times have changed, and there are more displays now supporting both AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync, allowing you to save money in the process of buying a new gaming panel.

The AOC C27G2ZU is one of these monitors, rocking support for both synchronization technologies, allowing anyone to hook up their gaming PC and enjoy butter-smooth gameplay. On paper, this monitor has a lot going for it, especially for competitive gamers, like rapid-fast response times and a high refresh rate.

Still, it’s aggressively priced and is positioned as one of the company’s more affordable screens, so how does it fare? This review will run you through its design, specifications, performance, and whether this non-AGON monitor is worth your time.
