    "Throwing all companies in one basket makes the author look like a 5 year old who has no capability of the slightest form of differentiation."

    c'est le ton qui fait la musique.

    schweine sehen nur schweine.
    weise sehen nur weise.

    i agree that the author suffers from 'déformation professionel', but that doesn't change the FACT that his negative, handpicked examples are valid.

    "ppl killed in a tesla" UNEQUAL "ppl killed by/with a tesla"

    lol.
    you could have compared those 100mio miles also to the likelihood of believing in santa.

    the issue at hand are FIRES, not general deaths.
    it's obvious that certain car models attract more crazy drivers
    while others attract more bad drivers.

    and some even change the behavior of the driver (SUV) IMHO.

    it's as if you were comparing how many ppl have been killed by a certain type of gun. you think the AK47 is less safe?

    i read totally incompatible reports.

    some say the absence of skid marks show breaking failure...
    but the official explanation is human failure (driving).

    today i read that virgin boss branson thinks someone dying on a commercial space flight would be fatal for the business - he couldn't be more wrong!!!!

    it would attract lots of wannabe-daredevils.
    how many ppl have died on airplanes? (extremely little)

    the number one killer is car crashed - and no one, and i really mean no one, cares about those!

    what you describe is really a huge issue.
    how come those prizes are so extremely low?
    prolly it's being subsidized.

    we pay way more than double!

    prices are in CHF. to get a conversion simply tell google: X chf to usd
    or x liter to gallon.

  • Tesla: It's Not The Company, It's The Valuation [View article]
    what most ppl fail to grasp is that high price segment is an advantage. e-cars are not "there yet" to be in tata's portfolio.

    if i was tsla, i'd build a high end car targeting the ultra riches starting at 1.5MIO EUR for basic model and then push it up to 3-4MIO with useless interior upgrades and other useless customization.

    and ofc that would drive technology forward and increase margins.

  • 8 Billion-Dollar Mistakes Microsoft Made That Killed Windows 8 And Led To Windows 8.1 [View article]
    ever since win95 i use this rule of thumb:

    if microsoft suggests something as default, change it! (viewing options of directory, the 'scrapware' they provide).

    and so i forgave microsoft. i would have forgiven them making revolutionary changes DEFAULT - if they had only made them optional!

    can anyone think of any reason why not to make such changes optional? why waste so much time on beta testing? when you have an optional feature it's reception cannot hurt you as much.
    anyone criticizing it will be laughet at like an itunes-'user'.
    can't understand apple's itunes update either.....
    or that they released their map-app in alpha-phase calling it "the best".

    seems very amateurish to me.

    however this won't hurt microsoft at all, and won't hurt apple seriously.
    what hurts apple the most is the false perception that they need to be truely innovative. if that was true, apple would have been bankrupt long time ago.

    Irrelevant. It won't have been his last tablet and he will recommend it - and warn toyboys that their 'tools' are really toys ;)

  • 3D Systems (DDD) and Stratasys (SSYS) both catch downgrades from William Bair in a note titled "Waiting for Expectations to Align With Reality." Neither firm, says Bair, appears well-positioned to be the leader of a "3rd industrial revolution ... many investors are buying shares of these two companies, at least in part, for the wrong reasons." Both are off 1.5-2% in the premarket. [View news story]
    why wait for them???
    residential applications have been published months, if not a year ago!! my friend's mum but herself a 3d printer half a year ago.

    applications in the creative arts are endless.
    lotsa consumer offerings already!

    but i guess since am in IT myself i might be less disturbed my financial technewbs - those are the ppl who sell apple cuz "they are not as 'innovative' _anymore_" - please - get real! those are the ppl who will find microsofts patent on navigating a website with a keyboard "innovative". those are the ppl who think connecting a USB HID to a smartphone is innovation when in fact it's more like painting an existing blue door red!

    if you ask apple fanboys, they can't even tell you why they believe their fon used to be innovative. they'll cite "first smartphone" and stuff like that....

    it's like ppl selling microsoft cuz win8 sucks for many ppl - it doesn't really get more dull!

    as if microsoft _had_ to sell win8. microsoft won't care for another 1-2 years whether you downgrade to win7 or not.
