We're still waiting for Tesla's master plan, but that doesn't stop us from talking about it. We also discuss Facebook's announcement that over 1 billion people use Messenger every month. That makes it the most popular app on iOS ever, except for Facebook itself which lays claim to 1.5 billion monthly users. According to TechCrunch we send 17 billion photos, 1 billion messages, 380 million stickers, 22 million GIFs, and 10 percent of all VOIP calls using Facebook Messenger. Facebook also owns WhatsApp, another member of the three comma club when it comes to monthly users. Today AirBnB said they plan to get some serious help with the #AirBnBWhileBlack problem from none other than former Attorney General Eric Holder. Selena Larson explores how app developers are working on ways to use your iPhone to manage PTSD, bipolar, and more. Iain Thomson discusses how Microsoft is too grabby with our data, and the amazing street art that two artists created with Google sheets.
