On July 26, a blogger exposed a group of photos of the ideal L9 test car crashing into the guardrail.
According to the description, the accident happened when Ideal Sales took a customer for a test drive in a rainy night and accelerated, suddenly encountering three lanes and turning into two lanes, and then crashed into the guardrail due to lack of response.
The exposed owner's chat records show that the vehicle's active brakes failed, the front axle airbag exploded, and the broken axle lay in the nest.
In response, @IdealAuto's official Weibo reposted a dash cam video posted by an ideal employee in response.
In the description, the employee said "no one was injured in the incident and the air spring was intact."
In the video, the structure of the right front suspension system of the accident vehicle is intact, the right steering rod in the steering system is deformed, the right side of the front bumper of the vehicle is damaged, the two right tires are punctured, and the right front wheel hub is deformed.
Regarding the problem of the vehicle's active braking failure, Li Auto said that the accident has nothing to do with AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking System).
This is the second time that the Ideal L9 has been exposed to an accident this month. On July 17, according to a report from China Central Broadcasting Network, an ideal L9 test car was suspected of having an air suspension break when it rushed through a deep pit, making it impossible to drive.

Recently, "Three days back to the village, the second uncle cured my mental internal friction" released by Bilibili UP owner @ 伊格許 has aroused heated discussions.
In the video, "Second Uncle"'s positive attitude towards life touched many viewers. Some netizens suggested that "Second Uncle" participate in the live broadcast on the short video platform to improve their living conditions.
In response to this, the video author @伊哥guess responded that he did not want the life of "Second Uncle" to be disturbed, and "a beautiful story should have a beautiful ending."
In response to the outside world's doubts about the authenticity of the video, @伊哥guess responded: "Every word is true, and even some more legendary things have been deleted."
When it comes to whether the story of "Second Uncle" will be made into a movie, @遊ge guesses:
"I think to be honest, the second uncle's story may not be able to support a 90-minute movie.
Because of the usual conflicts and contradictions in the movie, the second uncle also has them, but they are not enough and not dense enough, so after this movie is made, I think the effect may not be so good.
There are several screenwriters and a director talking to me about it. But overall, I'm not very enthusiastic about it. "

On July 25, at the summer forum of the 2022 Economist Annual Meeting, Dong Fan, director of the Real Estate Research Center of Beijing Normal University, said: "The pre-sale system cannot be cancelled but only improved. The pre-sale system is necessary." The remarks are controversial.
He believes that there are many voices on the Internet calling for "abolishing the pre-sale system" because they do not see the positive meaning behind the pre-sale system:
"Pre-sale can greatly improve the capital turnover of housing companies, build more houses, and solve the current imbalance between real estate supply and demand. At the same time, it can also reduce unfinished buildings and allow ordinary people to gain asset appreciation in the process of rising house prices. "
However, he also emphasized that the pre-sale system also has a lot to be improved. For example, pre-drawn, unmodifiable format contracts lead to unfair positions for both parties, as well as the order in which the loan contract is processed and the house is handed over.

Byte Core: Two years in preparation, with a team of less than 300 people
According to a report by LatePost, Byte has been making cores for nearly 2 years. The project started in the second half of 2020, and began to accelerate its expansion in the spring of 2021, with a current scale of more than 200 people.
At present, the main chip projects that Byte has launched are closely related to its business:
- AI chips are used to process a large number of recommendation algorithms;
- The video codec chip corresponds to the massive video processing requirements of short-term video applications such as Douyin and TikTok;
- FPGA smart NICs correspond to the need to improve the overall efficiency of data centers.
On the whole, the core-making road of domestic Internet manufacturers can now be divided into two factions.
One faction is represented by Ali Pingtou Ge and Baidu Kunlun Chip. They hope to sell chips to the outside world and have huge market intentions.
Founded in 2018, Alibaba's chip subsidiary, Pingtou Ge, currently has about 1,500 people and has successively launched products such as AI chips and ARM CPUs.
The other group, represented by Tencent, entered the game with "investment + part of self-research". The team size is relatively small and the chips are used by themselves.
Byte’s current core-making route is closer to Tencent. Yang Zhenyuan, vice president of ByteDance, also said at last week's Volcano Engine Conference that the purpose of ByteDance's core building is not to sell to the outside world, but to develop customized chips for its own needs.
Combined with the latest OKRs of Byte CEO Liang Rubo disclosed last week, cost reduction and efficiency enhancement are the core goals of Byte now. Enhancing its own computing power and saving computing power costs, rather than seeking greater chip business opportunities, may be the direction of Byte for a period of time.

Four tech giants, Google, Microsoft, Meta and Amazon, have recently called for the abolition of leap seconds.
The concept of "leap second" was first proposed in 1972. When the error between the Universal Time Coordinated Universal Time and Universal Time exceeds 0.9 seconds, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures will uniformly set the Coordinated Universal Time to advance or slow down by 1 second at the end of the year or in the middle of the year.
Leap seconds have caused network platforms to malfunction many times in the past.
According to the technology media WIRED, in 2012, the social networking site Reddit suffered a massive outage due to leap seconds. According to the British Guardian report, the open source community Mozilla, the social platform LinkedIn, and the US business review website Yelp have also encountered similar situations.
In response to this problem, Google proposed a "leap second compensation" scheme in 2011: adjusting the network time protocol server inside the system, adding a few milliseconds for each update to make up for the extra second of the leap second.
But two Facebook engineers said that this solution is only suitable for solving "positive leap seconds".
As the Earth's rotation pattern changes, there may also be "negative leap seconds" in the future. Not addressing the problem "would be devastating to software that relies on timers or schedulers."
According to WSJ reports, Faraday Future said in an announcement filed recently that it is currently seeking to raise approximately $325 million in additional funding to initiate the commercialization of its first electric vehicle, the FF91.
This means that U.S. production and first deliveries of the FF 91 will be delayed until the third or fourth quarter of this year.
Previously, Faraday Future had promised to start manufacturing and selling the FF 91 as early as 2018, but deliveries have been delayed several times. The company has also said it plans to launch an electric SUV as early as this month.
Bloomberg said the delay comes amid a standoff between the company and its founder, Jia Yueting.
In late June, a shareholder group affiliated with Jia Yueting demanded that a director be removed from the startup's board. On July 15, the shareholders said in a filing that they provided Faraday Future with "at least $100 million" in funding if the director resigned.
