Driverless Car Project Waymo has filed a federal injunction to stop Uber's self-driving research. The documents filed are part of a case we reported last month that involves Google's claim that Uber stole Waymo's designs for LIDAR, a key technology of the driverless car.

Google is looking to make things a bit less annoying for humans by making CAPTCHAs invisible. Google isn’t sharing the secret sauce, but the company says its system no longer needs your help recognizing when you are a human, and when you might be a robot posing as a human. THEY ALREADY KNOW.

Facebook is testing a new feature that will remind you to finish videos that you started watching. Facebook is testing the continue-watching feature only on the web version of Facebook right now.

We also discuss drones that shouldn't hurt when they fall on your head and how one man bred a snake with emoji on its skin. Plus, Sam Abuelsamid from the Wheel Bearings Podcast tells us everything we need to know about the uncertain future of vehicle-to-vehicle communication in driverless cars.
