  • Tesla: Actually, Consumer Reports Just Reiterated The Bear Case [View article]
    In my view, once you start with that Shill Gambit, you have nothing of any value to discuss.

    I think I finally totally gave on CU about 3 years ago when they rated a dishwasher as a "best buy" and gave it their 2nd highest rating. I was in the market for one at that time, looked around at other sources.

    Kind of caught my eye when almost every other source (Home Depot and such) customer reviews gave it one of the worst ratings of all in that price range. Not just in one place, but several.

    Obviously "independent" does not mean unbiased.

    Uhm.. no. If what you said was true, then those pictures and videos that have shown up in the past where a fast diving airplane and people floating would not be possible. The people inside experience zero-g, regardless of what the actual acceleration rate is - and there is no wind to do what you say. I have never been in a zero-g environment, but have been in low-g.

    See: http://www.gozerog.com

    If you free fall in atmosphere, eventually you reach terminal velocity - which means the force of the atmospheric resistance balances out gravity. Lying in bed you experience a constant 1g force - not zero.

    And BTW, as an engineer that is one of the things I dealt with.

    Does not work that way. While the acceleration might be 1g, the person will NOT experience any g at all - basically free fall. Until they hit the ground, then it might be as high as 40g...

  • Smashing rating for the Tesla Model S P85D from Consumer Reports [View news story]
    It would be far more correct to say that they "used" to be known for being impartial.

    It is not a matter of "not getting" the positives. It is a matter of ignoring the negatives to fit an agenda and personal bias.

    Nope. At one timer CU was objective and science based. They no longer are. It is not just cars - they have been spouting pseudoscience now for the past 3-4 years on many things. That is why I finally gave up and dropped my sub a couple of years ago.

    And it is that precisely that I no longer listen to CU/CR. It is not just cars that they have gone all pseudogreen and woo on - they have also gone full pro-organic, anti-GMO, and have given other products like washers and dryers extra points just for being supposedly "greener". Not because they worked better or lasted longer, but because they fit the agenda.

    Germany did that. Power costs in Germany went up over 200%.

    Not really. Most large solar and wind operations are a long ways from the grid, you need new power lines, and that can be a big issue in some places.

    And the negative $4 per share earnings. Market cap now is down to $2.77 billion.

    Yup, pretty easy to analyze things that have already happened.

    I think 23 is optimistic for the next year or so.

    Not all of those were actually gone, some were absorbed by other companies.

    I was in the solar business for over 15 years, up until 2013. It is far less simple than you seem to think to keep up that rate of growth. Nothing I have seen so far addresses infrastructure, power storage, or the costs of those.
