Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

This week brings a doubleheader of tech events, with Apple's developer conference to start and E3 at the end. For all of the big news from WWDC 2019, you should tune in right here this afternoon at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT to find out what's going on with Apple -- and what the future holds for iTunes.

The outage has been resolved, but there's no mention of a cause yet beyond "network congestion."


Something to do while you're Supercharging.'Cuphead' will be available to play in Tesla cars

This weekend, Elon Musk went on a Tesla podcast and confirmed that soon his company's cars will have at least one more game to play on their in-dash systems: Cuphead. The Unity game engine has been ported to Tesla's infotainment setup and should bring with it more complex games than Asteroids or Lunar Lander. Once it's available, owners will still need a USB gamepad to plug in, and limited storage means there's only one level included.

But wait, there's more...
