There’s a lot happening each week and it’s easy to miss a story or two or ten. What’s happening this week in Phoenix?  Have you experienced the new LinkedIn? What are the latest digital trends? Who bought what and for how much?

If you missed the answers to these hard-hitting questions, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered in our weekly news roundup.


Tuft & Needle Opening in Scottsdale


The Phoenix Business Journal has a sneak peek inside Tuft & Needle’s new Scottsdale location. It’s pretty unique and you can tell a ton of planning and thought has gone into it. We dare you to find a more original looking mattress store.


Gorgeous Cars For Auction at Barrett-Jackson


In the market for a gorgeous and super expensive car? You’re in luck, because AZ Central has the scoop on 15 insanely cool cars that are up for auction at Barrett-Jackson. They have a little of everything in there, from some classic roadsters to suped-up sports cars to the supremely awesome 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge pictured above.


LinkedIn Just went Full Facebook


A big update to LinkedIn has been brewing for a while. We knew when Microsoft bought the social media site that change was in the air. Well, according to Wired, that change has taken the form of Facebook. The tech magazine says it’s a smart move, and we’ll have to see how things play out, but there is no denying that the two sites look remarkably similar now. The change is rolling out slowly to users, so it’ll be hitting your homepage soon, if it hasn’t already.


Tesla Autopilot Not Defective in Fatal Crash

The NHTSA has found that the autopilot system of a Tesla involved in a fatal car crash was not defective. Elon Musak tweeted out that the final report issued was “very positive.” Self-driven cars are becoming more and more prevalent and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before they are driving around everywhere. For those of us in Phoenix, that day may be closer than you think.


Is Running Actually Good for Your Knees


The New York Times is reporting that recent study from Brigham Young University has found that running is actually good for your knees. We’ve all heard that impact training and running can hurt your knees long term, but it’s possible that the reverse is true. There’s still a lot of research to do, so don’t take this study as fact just yet, but for the timing being you can probably keep that New Year’s resolution to run a marathon on the calendar.
