The Nissan 370Z Nismo Tech is an excellent sports car that's hard to fall in love with

I won't beat around the bush here: at just over $46,000, the 2017 Nissan 370Z Nismo Tech we recently tested represents an incredible value for the money in sports cars.

You just have to get over how boringly excellent it is.


People are already reselling Snapchat's Spectacles for hundreds of dollars

Snapchat's Spectacles glasses haven't been on sale for 24 hours yet, but people are already reselling them online for hundreds of dollars. 

Postings on eBay Thursday list Spectacles for up to $900 — well above the eyewear's $130 retail price.

Snapchat parent company Snap Inc. started selling Spectacles out of a surprise vending machine near its headquarters in Venice Beach on Thursday. The company plans to introduce more pop-up vending machines throughout the U.S. in coming weeks.

Snap has said that it will have very limited supplies of Spectacles initially, and demand for the camera-equipped frames is clearly high. Around 3:30 p.m. ET on Thursday,


Here's one issue where Apple and Donald Trump see eye-to-eye: repatriation

Donald Trump is the President-elect, and the tech world is still figuring out how to react. After the vast majority of Silicon Valley stood in opposition to Trump’s policies and divisive rhetoric — which, among other things, called on Apple to make its phones in the US and said Amazon “has a huge antitrust problem” — many of those companies’ stocks are now taking a beating.


This tool from the Clinton campaign randomly picks a year and compares what she and Trump were doing

If it weren't clear enough, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump are remarkably different people.

As we speed toward the presidential election results tonight, the campaigns are trying harder than ever to explain those differences. Some of that explanation is about policy, but this is an election we're talking about, and an especially bizarre one at that. Much of the day-to-day rhetoric from each candidate has been about their opponent as a person, and how they are different.

The Clinton campaign has been using a unique tactic in this ongoing war of words: A website from Clinton's camp compares the two candidates across the past 50-plus years.

Like so:

This results in hilarity — assuredly intentional, more often than not:


'Snowden' actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the US election and meeting the NSA whistleblower

The US is heading to the voting booths on Tuesday and Hollywood actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is thousands of miles away from home, sitting down with Business Insider in a meeting room at European technology conference Web Summit in Lisbon.

The actor, who plays Edward Snowden in the recent Oliver Stone biopic, tells us he feels "paralyzed" to publicly make a prediction as to which way the vote will go. But he is prepared to talk about the frenetic discussion on social media around the election. While he admits scrolling through Twitter  to catch up on what's happening can be "cathartic," for the most part, he finds it deflating.


This purple bridge connecting Mexico and the US is the opposite of Trump's proposed wall

If Donald Trump wins today's presidential election, he plans to build a wall along the Mexico-US border to keep out immigrants from countries like Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

As a response to Trump's immigration platform, architects from Mexican firm Legoretta came up with a design that serves the opposite function.

Amazon is paying Robert De Niro $850,000 per episode for a new series as it goes to war with Netflix (AMZN)

Amazon has scored Robert De Niro's first TV series as it continues to beef up its Prime Video content in its war against Netflix.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new mafia drama will star De Niro and fellow Oscar winner Julianne Moore. It will be directed by David O'Russell, whose previous work includes "Silver Lining Playbook" and "American Hustle."

But De Niro's new show won't come cheap for Amazon. It's reportedly paying $160 million for the 16-episode show, while De Niro is getting paid $850,000 per episode.

That would make De Niro one of the highest paid actors on TV, right behind the three lead costars of "The Big Bang Theory," who are each getting paid $1 million a pop,


Players are having a major problem with multiplayer in the new 'Call of Duty'

In "Call of Duty" multiplayer, a confrontation between two players typically lasts anywhere from one to three seconds. It's a lightning-fast, twitchy game, where the player who fires the first shot usually wins. 

It's all about reflexes, and in the good "Call of Duty" games, nothing else is like it. You develop an innate feel for the game, meaning you know when you've beaten another player in this rapid-fire quickdraw before it's even over. 

Unfortunately, thanks to the fickle nature of the internet, things won't always go your way. In this year's game, "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare," players are complaining about unfairness caused by the game's servers.

Here's an example:

Tesla is planning to build a futuristic 'Gigafactory' in Europe that will produce more than just batteries (TSLA)

Tesla will build its next Gigafactory in Europe and it will produce more than just batteries, CEO Elon Musk said Tuesday. 

Musk said that Tesla plans to establish a combined vehicle and Gigafactory in Europe, where both batteries and vehicles can be produced on site. Tesla plans to eventually have at least one, if not multiple, battery and vehicles facilities in Europe, he said. 

However, it will likely be awhile before this hybrid factory becomes a reality. The company will begin looking for locations for its second Gigafactory next year, Musk said. For now, though, the company remains focused on getting ready for Model 3 production, which is slated for the end of 2017. 


Survive Election Day with the most uplifting music playlist ever, according to a neuroscientist

Election day is stressing people out.

If you need some uplifting tunes to avoid a dissociative fugue (or just get your groove one), a neuroscientist may have just the playlist for you.

Dr. Jacob Jolij, of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, created a playlist of feel-good and uplifting songs — and a formula for finding more of them.

The list was commissioned by the British electronics brand Alba. The company surveyed customers around the UK and Ireland, asking everything from their basic music taste to what sounds they listen to to feel happier.

According to Jolij's blog:
