People Are Clowning Rajon Rondo for Wearing Velcro Shoes to Cavs/Celtics Game

With Paul Pierce set to have his no. 34 Boston Celtics jersey retired after the team's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday, a few people from The Truth's Celtics days were there to show their support. Kevin Garnett, Doc Rivers, and Rajon Rondo sat next to one another courtside, and wait, wait, wait, what in the world are these shoes on Rondo's feet?! 

Someone was quick to zoom in on Rondo's, um, unique kicks and essentially open the roasting floodgates. 

And Twitter knew what to do from there. 

People can't be out here taking fashion risks anymore.

New Details Surface on How Harvey Weinstein Covered Up Sexual Assault Incidents

Justin Bieber Teases First Solo Song in Years

Even though it’s been almost two years since Justin Bieber’s last official album, the radio waves have not lacked for new Bieber music. He’s on two song of the summer contenders this year alone. But, fire features notwithstanding, it’s been a minute since we got new solo music from JB.

That’s about to change this week though, as the megastar tweeted out what appears to be the cover art for a new track he plans to drop on Thursday. The song is titled “Friends,” and along with Justin, the artwork lists Bloodpop, which serves as a major indicator to how this new track might sound.

If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Blood appears several times on the liner notes for Purpose, with production credits on “Mark My Words,” “I”ll Show You,” and most importantly, “Sorry.” It stands to reason then, that “Friends” will be more in that vein: tropical, summery, with an EDM/dance twinge and radio catnip. AKA, Bieber doing what he does best.

The move comes just weeks after Bieber made news by abruptly canceling his tour, so it’s a little surprising to see him releasing new music when we all assumed he was going to fall back for a while. For Bloodpop’s part, since working with Bieber he’s logged significant placements on Lady Gaga’s most recent album, as well as Haim’s latest single “Want You Back.”  So far, the two are 3 for 3 on collabs, so it's basically a scientific guarantee that “Friends” will be fire as well. For more on what we expect from Justin's new song, watch the video above.

People Spotted Apple’s Self-Driving Test Car in Silicon Valley

Apple wants to be at the forefront of the inevitable rise of the self-driving car. What is perhaps a first stab from the tech giant emerged from Apple’s facility Friday and was spotted driving around Silicon Valley.

The car was a souped-up Lexus RX450h SUV. This appears to be the earliest stage of real-world testing, but Apple is not taking its time. They're in an arms race. The company just obtained a permit to test this technology in California April 14. The permit covered “three vehicles, all Lexus RX450h, and six drivers.”

The SUV was covered with high-tech equipment like optical cameras that made it stand out on the roads juuuust a little bit. The kit included sensors that helped the car observe the world around it, according to Engadget.

The sensors came “off the shelf” from third parties like Velodyne—they were not custom, Apple-designed hardware.

New York Times report from September stated Apple was rethinking its strategy in pursuing self-driving cars, but the company's recent actions indicate the tech behemoth is fully committed to seeing this through.

Apple is on a mission to be the leader in this realm, but it will face competition, as Alphabet and Tesla are among the companies vying to get self-driving cars—AKA “autonomous-car technology”—on the road. California has granted permits for the testing to 30 companies so far. These companies include startups, car makers, automotive suppliers, and giants like Apple and Google.

Imagine going for a spin and passing that thing. Then again, if you live in Silicon Valley, you're probably used to seeing crazy things.

Apple’s shot at autonomous-car technology is known internally as “Project Titan.” Steve Wozniak, one of the two Steves who founded Apple and one of the most respected people in the tech sphere, had some fascinating thoughts on Project Titan and how it relates to Apple's early projects. Check out his perspective below.

Google Maps Now Predicts Parking Availability

When you Google search a business, say a hoity-toity café, oftentimes a nifty little graphic will pop up telling you when the establishment is at its busiest, AKA when finding a seat is next to impossible. Now, Google is offering a similar feature for parking availability on Google Maps.

Using historical data to plot out busy times and calculate a parking rating of Easy, Medium, or the “park 4 blocks away and then some” Limited rating. This new offering isn’t going to make finding that elusive parking spot any easier to find, but at least you’ll know what you’re getting into beforehand, and have the option to plan ahead.

This will be exceptionally useful in traffic impacted cities like Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, San Francisco, Austin, Miami and others who regularly experience a lack of good parking choices for nights out on the town – and the last ting you want is to miss your favorite opener at a show because you couldn’t find a parking space.

Right now, the parking availability calculation is only based on historic data, but its only a matter of time before they take advantage of anonymous location services to plot out availability in real time.
