Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.
Welcome to your weekend! There are some new details about Apple’s credit card to pore over and an appropriately tricked-out SUV from Razer. Also, we’ll recap some of last week’s most popular stories like the contact lenses that zoom in and Sony’s wearable air conditioner.
Meet Razer’s special edition electric SUV
As far as branded cars go, Razer’s NIO ES6 doesn’t look half-bad. If you weren’t familiar with the company, it might just look like another tricked-out car from a geek with too much money. It’s also a capable electric SUV, with 544hp of power and the ability to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. However, NIO is only going to make 88 of these custom SUVs for sale in China, where they’ll cost about $67k.

It slips into a pouch on custom-made clothes like tees and sits at the base of your neck, using the Peltier effect to cool you off, all without bulk or noise.
Apple Card customer agreement: use two-factor, no jailbreaking
The Apple Card terms are pretty standard — similar to some other cards, purchasing any kind of “cash equivalent” like cryptocurrency is prohibited — but there are some specific items. That you’ll need an Apple ID is pretty obvious, and it requires that you enable two-factor authentication. Also, modifying your Apple device or jailbreaking could make it ineligible to access your card account.
