latest automaker promising to go Green is a luxury sports car brand. Volkswagen owned, Lamborghini says by the end of 2020 for every new model it offers will be a plug in hybrid. This means the new models will combine electric motors and powerful batteries with more traditional engines. Lamborghini plans to spend nearly $2 billion to develop the hybrid fleet and that's the largest investment the company has ever made. But Lamborghini says it will help them reach a goal of cutting emissions in half over the next four years. By the way, Lamborghinis competitor Ferrari offers a plug in hybrid already and another supercar brand, McLaren has one coming suit.

And google is adding a way for you to change stored website passwords right in its password manager without having to go to each site. Plus it's making some changes to google maps. It's upgrading its live view tool that can help you navigate the world through augmented reality. The idea is it lets you browse the street or certain businesses, like restaurants, remotely, and those are just a few of the many new announcements from google.
