We're willing to bet that every once in a while, Bill Gates gets out of bed in the morning and has an "Oh God what have I done" kind of moment, regarding his contributions to technology.

Thirteen Dank Memes Featuring The World's Smallest Computer Next To A Grain Of Rice

Back in 2018, researchers at the University of Michigan created the world's smallest computer, measuring just 1x1 mm. Unfortunately, the tiny device loses all of its programming and data as soon as it's turned off, so it's up in the air as to whether it actually has the "minimum functionality required" to count as a legitimate microcomputer. But fortunately for us, it's become part of this new dank meme, which features a picture of the tiny computer next to a grain of rice. Scroll down to see some of our favorite examples!

By placing 99 working phones in one spot, this man tricked Google Maps into thinking the street is jammed and as a result to divert traffic to different routes. Only several dozens of phones are standing between you and never having to sit in traffic again (just kidding, please don't try this at home).

Move Over CyberTruck, Rivian Is Taking the Stage

After the viral fame of Tesla's CyberTruck, its rough for any company to pull off that kind of hype. But one company doesn't need to destroy supposedly bulletproof glass to prove they have a contender to bring to the fight. Rivian is not a Kickstarter startup looking to generate interest. The company has recently completed over $1.3 billion in funding from Amazon, Ford, and Cox Automotive. Amazon alone ordered 100,000 of the vehicles.

The company had over 100,000 pre-orders before the vehicle itself had even been unveiled, and a few weeks later that had tripled. The focus of the company was to make a truck that could get down and dirty as much as the rest of what was on the market, unlike the Tesla offering. And also combine that with the needs of conservation-minded consumers.

Rivian is breaking the mold and taking the reins from Tesla's CyberTruck with their own offering that has become a sensation.

No Humans Allowed: Petzbe Is a New Social Network For Pets Only

Do pets need social media apps? Well, they have one now. Petzbe is a new app for pets. Their owners use it, but they use it from their pet's perspective. Instead of liking and following each other, users get to sniff, lick, and share stories about their frolics in the dog park or how they got in trouble for shredding the roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.
