VW will take a crack at the land speed record in September at a different event.
The Foxconn Technology Group doesn't design, market, or sell a single product. Yet, ironically, it is one of the largest consumer electronics manufacturers on the planet. Chances are you have at least one of the products it builds within reach right now. Could the same type of arrangement work in the auto industry?
It would make sense if traditional carmakers like FCA, Ford, and General Motors could be hired to build or assemble cars conceived by vendors like Apple, Uber, and Waymo/Google, says Bryan Reimer, a research scientist in MIT's AgeLab and associate director of The New England University Transportation Center at MIT, vehemently. In fact, he insists it's already happening.You design it, we build it
Foxconn is the king of contract manufacturers. It assembles a multitude of items: everything from flat-screen televisions to smartphones for cash-rich tech giants like Apple, Nokia, Samsung, Sony, and others. A client hands Foxconn a set of schematics. The Taiwan-based manufacturer then manages the supply chain and quickly builds the product so that the client can market and sell it to the masses.

Google is taking special steps to let Google Play users know they can't download Fortnite to their Android device through the centralized app store. When users search for "fortnite" on Google Play, they're now presented with a special message reading "Fortnite Battle Royale by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play."
The message appears to be new and unique to Fortnite searches—looking for other popular titles that aren't available on Google Play and/or Android phones doesn't result in the same warning. The warning also does not appear when searching the Google Play store through a Web browser.
The top result of the "fortnite" search on Google Play remains the competing battle-royale game PUBG Mobile, as it was before Fortnite's Android release. This is likely the result of the algorithmically derived similarity between the games and not a specific, manually inserted dig at Epic's similar game.
