Here is the top trending news from the world of technology. News that every tech enthusiast should keep a tab on.


In a first, Chinese government official will now drive Tesla vehicles


Government officials in China’s Jiangsu province will now be driving Tesla’s Model Y.  That’s because Jiangsu province has included Tesla in its government procurement list, making it the official vehicle of the government or state level officials. Tesla is probably the first foreign owned electric vehicle company to achieve this distinction, which clearly shows that Musk’s efforts to win over the Chinese government is paying off.  Musk had even paid a surprise visit to China in April this year when he met some of the top officials of the Chinese government. Overall, Tesla’s inclusion in the government procurement list will come as a major shot in the arm for the company as it tries to stave off the competition from China’s home-grown competitor BYD.


YouTube’s updated Eraser Tool eliminates copyrighted music from Videos

YouTube has rolled out an all new improved and updated Eraser Tool that will allow creators to get rid of the copyrighted music from their videos while keeping the remaining part of the audio intact. Till now this tool was in beta testing and often gave inaccurate results during the testing phase.

It is, therefore, recommended that creators should review the final edit before uploading the video. Nonetheless, the all-new improved eraser tool could prove to be a great boon for creators who want to spare themselves from getting into the terrain of copyright violation.
