Robots are helping us understand what we're signing up for

Who has time to read those pages and pages of legal gobbledegook you just blindly accept online? Well, now a robot does. The service is called "Do Not Sign" and AI will scan the user agreement and tell you where you should be concerned. It'll also alert you to any loopholes you may be able to take advantage of. The company already provides AI legal services for parking tickets and small suits against large companies.

We've got another folding phone

It feels like we're seeing a trend here. First it was Samsung, now Motorola is getting into the folding game. This phone is a reboot of a beloved flip phone, but when you open it the whole thing, instead of being a keypad, there's now a full touch screen. Benefit here is somewhat limited, except that you can get a bigger screen on a device that fits better in your pocket.

Ford has launched their first all-electric SUV

It's a mustang! It looks slick! Tesla has really had a hold on the market when it comes to cool looking electric cars, but this a game changer. It's got the power and design flair of the mustang - with the iconic long bonnet and tail lights, but with all the green benefits. Plus it's an SUV which is the most popular category of car.
