  • Notes On Cars (And Apple) [View article]
    Rusty Haight, a legend in automotive safety (and a human crash test dummy) is quoted in the March/April issue of Road & Track. His direct comment is, "...they'll never invent the computer that's as smart as people are stupid". While I dislike saying never, I agree that it will be nearly impossible for AI to keep up with the ability of humans to do new inventive stupid things.

  • Tesla Is Not The Next iPhone [View article]
    I rarely spend more than 5 minutes at the service station refilling my gasoline engine and gain about 400 miles of "range". How much time (a far more finite resource than money) would I need to spend at a supercharger in order to gain half of that?

    Not sure the quote you're using applies to a successful lawsuit.

  • Apple iOS Versus Android: Is This The Turn Of The Tide? [View article]
    Exactly what operating system can other phone makers use? It isn't as if Apple is going to let them use iOs. Unless you believe that the only phone in the marketplace will be Apple's then there will be a need for an operating system to run the other manufacturers phones.

  • Tesla's Q4 hurt by delayed deliveries; strong 2015 growth expected [View news story]
    I agree. Their deliveries in Q1 2015 should be increased due to this. In this release it appears they will be below expectations.

  • Why Tesla Needs To Be More Like Apple [View article]
    Who exactly wants to have a "normal" conversation while driving a vehicle at super car speeds? As a driving enthusiast I'm concentrating on the pleasure of the ride. I have no interest in having a normal conversation while exploring the limits of a vehicle.

    Usually at max acceleration I just have a stupid grin on my face. Part of that experience is the aural stimulation of a perfectly tuned engine. I'll miss that.

  • Google looks to build Android directly into cars [View news story]
    I'd prefer Google Maps any day to the navigation systems in my 2014 Mazda 6 or 2015 Toyota Sienna. By a country mile.

  • OPEC has no target price [View news story]
    @kappaseek it is utter hubris that, for better or worse, mankind can control the environment. Nature is vastly more powerful than the environmental lobby would like you to believe. That's why they've taken to calling everything climate change instead of global warming. Using the new terminology any weather changes can be chalked up to man's influence. It's complete huey.

  • OPEC says 2015 demand for its crude will be weakest in 12 years [View news story]
    The trees in my backyard convert carbon to oxygen. That I inhale. That is necessary for me to live.

    And I thought the 30K with tax I just dumped on a Mazda 6 for my kid was insane. Turns out she's driving an economy car!

  • Tesla Underestimates Supercharger Expenses [View article]
    I believe that the sites mission is to make a business case for investment not to make statements about saving the world with a higher gas tax. Please maintain your focus as to whether TSLA is a good investment. It's about the Alpha not the environment here.
