Transfer up to 1 TB of data

What if you needed to share hundreds of Gigabytes (or even Terabytes) with a partner to finish a project, but you’ve reached the limits on the sharing service you already use? Well, that’s where SoShare comes in. The new service is utilizing the power of BitTorrent to share an unlimited amount of data with as many users as you want — up to 1 Terabyte per transfer — and the best part of all: it’s 100% completely free. Sound too good to be true?
Currently in beta, the service is free to use and uses the company's titular protocol to transfer files of "any" size, up to 1 TB.  The browser plug-in works with Apple, Inc.'s (AAPL) Safari, Google Inc.'s (GOOG) Chrome, and the Mozilla Foundation's Firefox browser.  Users can easily check up on their file transfers, including pausing them or resuming them.

Huawei says Ascend P6 is world's 'slimmest' smartphone

Huawei has unveiled what it says is the world's thinnest smartphone.
The Android-based Ascend P6 is 6.18mm (0.24in) thick and is also unusual in that it has a 5 megapixel front camera for "high quality" self-portraits.
The Chinese firm has said it expects the handset to do "miracles" for its brand.
One analyst praised its design, comparing it to a "steamrollered iPhone", but said its lack of support for 4G networks might limit sales.
"It's undoubtedly the most impressive phone that Huawei have launched to date in terms of the design, the materials used and its quality," said Ben Wood, director of research at consultancy CCS Insight, who was at the London launch.
"We've seen mainland Chinese manufacturers rapidly improve their ability to make competitive devices over the last 18 months and this is possibly the best so far. But its 3G status means there has undoubtedly been a trade-off to get it as thin and cheap as possible."
Thinnest phone Huawei says it designed one of the slimmest and narrowest circuit boards in the industry to squeeze the electronics into the new handset.
The device has a 4.7in screen making it comparable to the HTC One but is more than 3mm (0.1in) thinner.
It is also slightly slimmer than both the iPhone 5 and the Alcatel One Idol Ultra - which previously claimed to be the world's thinnest - but at 120g (0.26lb) weighs a little more than both.
The phone features Huawei's own tile-based user interface called Emotion and proprietary software, including an "auto-facial enhancement" tool designed to make self-portraits look better.

Tesla's 90 second battery swaps will power EVs faster than gas pumps fill tanks

Tesla founder Elon Musk has mentioned battery swap service stations as an even faster alternative to charging for EV drivers, and tonight the company showed just how efficiently it can be done. In a demonstration at its design studio, it beat what it claims is the fastest gas pump in LA by exchanging a drained car battery pack for a fresh fully charged one in just 90 seconds. When the $500,000 stations start rolling out, owners will stay in the car the whole time then either swap the battery back for their original on a return trip, or get a bill for the difference based on how new their battery is. According to Reuters, the exchange is expected to cost owners between $60 - $80 each time or about the cost of 15 gallons of gas.Of course, failed outfit Better Place proposed a similar service before it shut down, but Tesla is betting that it can make it work this time. The first service stations are coming to busy corridors, with some planned for I5 in California. Still need more proof? Elon Musk tweeted that video of the event will be available in "about an hour," so check back then.
