Tesla layoffs prompt solar facility closures in 9 states

Tesla layoffs prompt solar facility closures in 9 states

Tesla's suit against Tripp alleged that he "unlawfully hacked" the company's manufacturing operation system, writing code that would send secret data to third parties and planting the code on three different systems to falsely implicate other Tesla employees.

"As a result of these and other issues, on or about May 17, 2018, Tripp was assigned to a new role".

The suit also outlined some of the misleading and sabotaging information Tripp had shared with media such as false claims that punctured battery cells had been used in Model 3s and exaggerations regarding the amount of "scrap" material that the firm produced.

The founder of Tesla, the electric auto company, keeps appearing in the news for all the wrong reasons. It was formatted to continue to export sensitive data off to unknown third parties even after Tripp left Tesla. Tripp's hacking of Tesla systems was seemingly created to export confidential information - not delay the manufacturing process or cause fires - and it appears that all of his actions were retaliation against Tesla for perceived mistreatment, rather than industrial espionage. The email was the latest turn in an us-versus-them narrative that has seen Musk blame short-sellers, Big Oil, the media, and now his own employees for Tesla's production problems.

Because of this, the company is suing him for $1m. GM's Mary Barra came out top, talking to investors and analysts with language expected of a 10th grader. Earlier this month, Tesla did say it had plans to reduce its overall energy team by 9 percent.

On Thursday, Tripp told Ars that he wanted to reveal internal waste and safety flaws in Tesla batteries that he claimed he observed while working as a technician at the company's Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada.

Apple's AirPower Wireless Charging Mat May Not Arrive Until September
First and foremost, I think battery life needs to see a major improvement before Apple drops physical wired charging altogether. According to a report from Bloomberg , "technical hurdles" have delayed the launch of the AirPower wireless charging mat .

Tesla's lawsuit against a former employee was filed just 24 hours ago and it's already ripe fodder for Hollywood.

Eish, Elon Musk is really going in hard on the poor bugger, who had to seek official protection as a whistleblower.

In a statement to CNBC this week, Tripp claims that he is a whistleblower rather than a saboteur. Tripp said he responded that Musk deserved what was coming.

Tripp told The Guardian: "I'm a scapegoat because I provided information that is absolutely true".

Tesla declined to comment on the trial.

The row took a freakish twist late on Wednesday night when Tesla said it had received a credible threat - from a "friend of Mr Tripp" - that Mr Tripp was "coming to the Gigafactory to "shoot the place up".
