Apple warns of scam calls coming from spoofed "Apple Customer Service"

Apple is the latest company to be spoofed in a robocall scam.

Consumers have reported receiving calls warning them of suspicious activity on their iCloud account or iPhones. After a recorded message from "Apple Support," an agent comes on the line to ask for personal account information.

Apple stated that the company does not make unsolicited calls to users. They encourage users who receive spoofed calls from "Apple" to report them on their website.

As with all robocall scams, consumers should use caution when answering calls from unfamiliar numbers, and should never give out personal information during an unsolicited call.



Tesla in talks to transform Walt Disney World ride

The Walt Disney Company is reportedly in talks with Tesla to change the cars on their Tomorrowland Speedway ride into min-Teslas.

The Tomorrowland Speedway at the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida currently features gas-powered go-karts that visitors can drive around a racetrack. This new partnership would replace those karts with "Tesla Model S for Kids" battery-powered ride-on cars built by Radio Flyer, making the ride all-electric.

According to reports, this move will make for an overall improved rider experience, as the new electric cars create less noise and pollution.
