(MENAFN - NewsBytes)

  • So you thought you'd order pineapple topping on your pizza and no one would find out? Well, think again because Domino's India has somehow managed to leak 180 million order details , which include names, phone numbers, addresses, and even credit card details.

    However, Domino's denies the last one, claiming that it never stores credit card details in the first place. We'll know soon enough.

  • Price hikes Budget smartphone buyers will soon feel PC enthusiasts' pain

  • If there's anyone suffering more than Domino's customers, it has to be budget smartphone manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Realme, Micromax, and Lava.

    Global chip shortages aren't just restricted to, well, chips but also extend to memory, battery, camera, and electronic components in smartphones.

    In a segment where every rupee matters, these companies will have to pass the burden onto the customers as price hikes.

  • Hands on wheel Two men cause fatal crash after overestimating Tesla autopilot

  • In more tragic news, two senior citizens fatally misunderstood Tesla's autopilot system. Neither of the unidentified men was in the driver's seat when the 2019 Model S crashed into a tree and ended up in flames that took four hours to control.

    What's inexplicable is how this even happened, because Tesla autopilot uses weight sensors and driver input prompts to prevent such a catastrophe.

  • Ingenuity NASA opens new dimension to robotic space exploration

  • Meanwhile, drones are all the rage now, so much so that a certain US government agency flew one on Mars. NASA's Ingenuity Mars helicopter isn't exactly a DJI drone, but it isn't that far off either since it was built using off-the-shelf components.

    The $80 million-worth drone has become the first rotorcraft to fly on another planet, while opening new avenues for planetary exploration.

  • Pleasant surprise Man orders apples, but gets an expensive surprise instead

  • Here's an apples-to-apples comparison that no one saw coming. A lucky bloke from UK had placed an online order for apples, but received a rather inedible and expensive kind—an Apple iPhone SE .

    Turns out, that wasn't a mistake, but a part of supermarket chain Tesco's campaign in conjunction with Tesco Mobile. The fact that you are reading this makes it a successful marketing campaign.
