This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: Apple’s electric self-driving car project apparently just landed a bigwig from Lamborghini. Does this mean the hiding-in-plain-sight Apple car is back on track?

Also on The CultCast:

  • Saudi Arabia’s crazy glass building sounds unbelievable.
  • Anker makes GaN charging even faster and more efficient.

The Line in Saudi Arabia

Here’s the website for The Line, the crazy Saudi Arabian glass-sided building that supposedly will be “only 200 meters wide, but 170 kilometers long.” You’ve got to see the images to believe them.

Just remember: “Zero-gravity living will mean a higher-density footprint creates a richer human experience.”

Digital Markets Act

And finally, here’s the European Union’s pompous statement on the Digital Markets Act that was just too tedious to read on the podcast:

With the final adoption of the Digital Markets Act, we will finally make large online platforms responsible for their actions. Hereby, the EU will change the online space worldwide. The gatekeepers that the DMA addresses are omnipresent – we all use their services on a daily basis. However, their power is growing to an extent that negatively affects competition. Thanks to the DMA, we will ensure fair competition online, more convenience for consumers and new opportunities for small businesses.

I’m sure they’ll fix everything.
