While automakers have been not-so-quietly making promises to catch up to the likes of Tesla when it comes to electric vehicle range, a sports car maker may be the first to beat the startup at its own game. A production version of the 2015 Porsche Mission E electric concept is scheduled to go on sale at the end of 2019, with a price expected to start in the $80,000 – $90,000 range, according to CAR Magazine.
Speaking last week at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume says the Mission E will look “very close” to the concept presented two years ago at the show. Smaller than Porsche’s other four-door car, the Panamera, the company says it is intended to bridge the gap between that vehicle and the 911 sports car….
Hulu took home the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series tonight, won by Bruce Miller for “Offred,” the pilot of The Handmaid’s Tale.
The streaming service made a poor showing at last year’s awards, netting just two nominations and no wins. This year it received 18 nominations, 13 of which were for the critically acclaimed adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s classic 1985 dystopian thriller.
The Handmaid’s Tale is also nominated for Outstanding Drama Series and several acting awards, to be announced later tonight, and Alexis Bledel already took home the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama award earlier this week at the Creative Arts portion of the awards.
Accepting the award, Miller thanked Hulu and said that the Emmy “really…

Essential’s debut smartphone has received approval to run on Verizon, meaning it’s now supported by all four major US carriers. Sprint was the device’s launch partner, so it of course had support, and both AT&T and T-Mobile gave tacit support ahead of the phone’s launch.
But Verizon, for some reason, said it couldn’t guarantee that the Essential Phone would work and that the phone still had to clear a certification process. Evidently it’s now done that, with Essential tweeting out this morning that the phone is now compatible with Verizon.

John Legere just tweeted out that T-Mobile will not be putting a cap on data speeds for the Apple Watch Series 3. Responding to customer “frustrations” about T-Mobile’s original plan to limit data on Apple’s smartwatch to 512kbps, Legere says that upon the device’s release next Friday, customers will now be getting full 4G LTE speeds.
Adding an Apple Watch to your T-Mobile One plan still costs $10 extra per month. But this is definitely an improvement over what seemed to be T-Mobile’s original idea, which was to limit download rates to 512kbps by default and charge customers more (between $20 and $25) if they needed faster data.
The Apple Watch Series 3 plan on @TMobile will be $10/m for unlimited 4G LTE. Thanks for your feedback. We…

Around the country today, marketers in the $35 billion addiction treatment industry woke up to an unpleasant surprise: Many of their Google search ads were gone. Overnight, the search giant has stopped selling ads against a huge number of rehab-related search terms, including “rehab near me,” “alcohol treatment,” and thousands of others. Search ads on some of those keywords would previously have netted Google hundreds of dollars per click.
“We found a number of misleading experiences among rehabilitation treatment centers that led to our decision, in consultation with experts, to restrict ads in this category,” Google told me this morning by email.
Google is the biggest source of patients for most treatment centers. Advertisers tell…
