  • What Is Wrong With Tesla Motors? [View article]
    I hold a small position in TSLA and I believe as Tesla ramp up their production capability, it'll show an improving top-line numbers. The improving financial result will push their stock price higher.

    However, over the long term, I have doubt about where their customers gonna come from after the initial reservations run out. Just look at Nissan Leaf, they did not meet their initial sales target and so far this year, their sales is down 18%. I know Leaf and Model S have different customer base. But with lower price, Nissan should have a bigger customer base and they only managed to sale 535 units last month and 3148 for 6 month. This makes me wonder about the long term viability of Tesla.

  • New Catalysts Pushing Ford Higher [View article]
    If there is a test drive, I am pretty sure it will be at the Tesla Factory in Fremont, CA. I know they are hiring temp workers for 6 days starting June 20 for the launching event this Friday at the Factory.

  • More on Microsoft Surface: The tablet features a 10.6" display, uses Corning's (GLW) Gorilla Glass, and comes with Office built-in. Microsoft has also developed a cover that doubles as a keyboard with touchpad, thereby allowing Surface to shift into PC mode. One version will be sold with an ARM-based (ARMH) processor, while a somewhat thicker/heavier version will feature an Intel (INTC) Core i5 processor and support existing Windows apps.

    Maybe, MSFT is targeting the iPad, but inadvertently, they might push their oem customers into the Android camp.

    They should have unite their oem customers such as HP, Dell, Samsung, Acer, Asus......etc. into one camp to battle iPad, instead, they will have to battle Android and iOS in both fronts now. I don't think this is a good idea.

    Maybe, MSFT is eying a bigger eco-system like the one Apple has. But, aren't they a few years behind?

    Anyway, I guess MSFT has enough money to do a little bit of experience as they please. However, personally, I think they should come out with the reference design and help their oem customer succeed, pretty much like what INTC is doing.

  • Steve Jobs: Leader Of The U.S. Manufacturing Renaissance? [View article]
    "An explosion at a Foxconn assembly plant in China ravages building killing two and injuring 16", This is Steve Jobs' contribution to the Manufacturing World. Slave labors were employed in an unsafe working condition. No wonder in early last year, they kept jumping off the roof to kill themselves.

    Anybody who bought iPad should know you have blood in your hands just like those people who bought blood diamond from west Africa.

  • Ford, Tesla, Solyndra: Good Economic News or Bunk? [View article]
    Does anybody seriously believe that China got double digit growth for the past decade because of free market capitalism? Without government intervention, we wouldn't have a auto industry today. No, I am not talking about Bush/Obama's auto bailout, I am talking about Reagon administration's pressure on the Japanese auto manufacturers to a self-imposed export limit, thus forcing them to move their manufacturing to the US. Without any help/pressure from our government, look where our TVs, Cell phones, PCs, etc. came from. Our government needs to have more forceful industrial policies to help our domestic manufacturers especially the one that is still in its infancy such as Solyndra and Tesla. This is not bunk. It's sound industrial policy at the national level.
