THis is CNet and these are the stories that matter right now. Elon Musk wants to save humanity by sending us to space. The founder of SpaceX and Tesla told crowds at South by South West in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, that there's likely to be another dark age, and we need to make sure there's enough of a seed of human civilization to bring it back. But sending people to space won't be all bad. By the time human's inhabit Mars Musk said the planet should have some really great bars. The Samsung Note 9 probably won't have a fingerprint reader under the screen. While Samsung is rumored to be working on the technology, both the Note 8 and Galaxy S9 featured fingerprint sensors on the rear. According to KGI analyst, Ming Chi Quo, Samsung has also postponed the feature on the Note 9 because current sensing technology does not meet Samsung's technical requirements.

If a sensor on your Ford vehicle was faulty the car would send out an alert via Ford's vehicle to vehicle network. A drone could then be dispatched to act as a temporary sensor and guide the car to a repair center.
