Tesla Model 3 madness! Fans wait in line for mystery car

Tech Industry
You've seen people camp in line overnight an iPhone but now people are doing that for a car. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your CNET update. [MUSIC] Would you stand in line to buy a car that you've never seen before? That's what's happening around the world as people are standing in line to be among the first to plop down $1,000 to reserve a new Tesla Model 3. And many even camped out overnight. Of course, people go crazy for the Tesla brand, but here's the wild tryst. These photos of lines are people who have not yet even seen the car, nor do they have any information about it. Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveils details late Thursday night. Which is after this report is recorded and also past my bedtime. So why the mania for a mystery vehicle? It's the price. The aim was to have this new all electric car cost around $35,000 and other Teslas start at around 70 grand. For those that lined up early at Tesla's dealerships around the world, They will still have to do quite a bit of waiting before driving one. Because it's not expected to come out until late next year. Now while you still have to leave the house to by a car, Amazon is making it so you don't even have to log on to a computer or phone do buy more coffee, coconut water, or even condoms. Amazon is expanding its dash button program, which lets Prime members press an internet connected plastic button in their home to get more of a certain brand's products delivered to their door. It launched a year ago with about eighteen brands, but now with its expansion, there are now over 100 different buttons, including one for Doritos, one for Red Bull, and one for Trojan condoms. Boy, that's an exciting night right there. It's only for Amazon Prime members which is a $100 yearly subscription that includes free two-day shipping and other perks. But if you like paying even more for Prime, well then you should buy it from Sprint. The wireless carrier is letting customers add Prime to their monthly mobile plan billed for about $11 a month. Which comes out to 33 dollars more a year than you would pay otherwise. So unless you're doing it for just a short term, thanks but no thanks. Also in Amazon News, the company's new smart speakers, the Echo Dot and Amazon Tap, are now arriving to those that preordered, and we're busy testing them out so stay tuned for our reviews. Meanwhile, Nintendo's new mobile app is now available to download. It's called Miitomo And it's like a social network that gives you points for using it which you can spend on outfits. If you like to waste precious hours of your life with me, it's available on Apple and Android App Stores. That's all for this tech news roundup from our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
