    One-handed use is not just about text, about navigating the four corners, think gps, browsers , etc.

  • Bullish Algorithmic Forecast For Tesla, But Is Now The Time To Buy? [View article]
    Hey 123man, sorry I'm in and out of SA these days, work caught up to me pulling 70 hour weeks until May ... any who, I'm in San Francisco, but I work in San Jose, I'd love to take a spin or tour the plant, but I here you have to have a reservation.

    I'm working with my HOA and eVGO to put wiring to my space in our garage for either the Prius plug-in or Gen III if reservations are open early 2015. eVGO/NRG made a deal with our HOA to put in the wiring to stalls for $500-$1,100 (I'm sure it will be on the $1,000 end, but heck that's still worth it, and that includes a pedestal!)

    @fgrindle, as JRP3 said, here you go,

    First hit on Google, now to be fair the title does say "expected" but the text said "will". But again, this is the first hit. Bottom Line is Panasonic is lining up others to participate, I think they have not stated "exactly" an amount because they are waiting to see who else jumps in, but there's no question "where the money is coming from!"

    I like that solution 123man, great PR and gives a way for the Tesla-evangelist to strut their stuff ... er ... Model S. I would do that, in fact as an early Prius adopter I did do that with neighbors and guests.

    You were right the first time Tippy, Tesla fixed the vampire drain with a software upgrade. That thread you refer to in the Tesla forum, the later posts also refers to the fix, you yourself stated such. There is no ongoing vampire drain.

    OK, that's a decent response, and yes I did not read the entire report, just, as you say, ...

    I'm not sure what to make of your SEC post, but I will reread the TSLA forecast, I could have swore they already stated a weakness in the next few quarters, hmmm? And or, weakness has already been reported even in SA articles!

    @sean, and how is that funny Sean? Like tech01x said Top Gear fed you that lie and you repeated it, and all you had to say is that "Tesla had to pay the legal costs".

    There are many many on SA who dismiss "good" research for out and out lies, misinformation and often just BS presented by the "bear" case as fact.

    And you laugh? That is so incongruent with your trying to be a credible author!

    Not to mention why are you using the Roadster as a test case when you have ample, ample, tests from real reviewers like Consumer Reports, on the REAL vehicle of which your article purports to be making an investment case for - The Model S?

    It's the monster we allowed to grow under the bed - auto dealerships.

    Wow Tippy, how could you "miss"-read that report so badly. This truly demands a response. You really need to explain this one, you just moved to the lacks credibility column, yikes!

    Yep, I thought about that long and hard. If push came to shove it seems like the whole relevance of dealerships can be challenged in court based upon this assumption. Dealers would be hard pressed, other than recalls, to make an argument re this alleged "protection" in todays world.

    It would be interesting to hear a few lawyers chime in, the lawyer-investor voice has been conspicuously silent on this whole issue.

    Of course, Tesla would be hard pressed to reallocate $$$ towards a lawsuit against effectively the oil industry. But if this one is a slam dunk based upon protectionism and monopoly"ism" you'd think the payoff for a pro bono case, not to mention press coverage as marketing, would be well worth it.

    thanks cmnsnse,

    You've exposed the one viable argument against the lease model - resale of the home.

    The reality in the data is 1 out of 90 opt to not continue the lease. Of course, finding the buyer can still be an issue, but it's good to know that SC could uninstall. Interesting I wonder what the removal costs are including patching the roof?

    BTW, most negative on the "lease" fail to mention that the home owner "leases" in the sense that they pay for the energy at a 10-20% reduction over their utility, they are not leasing the solar system.
