Thank-you for repeatedly commenting on sales data. It's sales data that counts not "in transit to somewhere", or "in transit to nowhere" or even just plain old "in transit.' SALES is the important number. Has been for years in all of the world and still is today and will be tomorrow. Production and inventory and wishes are all fine but it's still SALES, SALES, SALES.
LOL dinoissoyoung You clearly don't remember the early IBM desktops from the mid 1970's. But surely you remember or saw in the movies the brick phones? They were used by thousands of us, and are now collectors items. I don't even think the AAPL boys were out of diapers when these two items were invented. And decades before that when IBM built the first "big" computers they didn't vertically integrate. There was a vacuum tube manufacturer called RCA that was a leader in its field.
LOL I laughed yesterday when I read that news article. I'm still laughing this morning, this afternoon and this evening. We would all have to sell half our houses, half our cars, travel half as much, work half as much, eat half as much... and still not achieve that. I think this artilcle is clearly in the running for the 2016 ChangeTheWorldbySillyness award, But big competition from the Eloon. I have compleete faith that he can say something even sillier later today or tomorrow and pull back into the lead.
Help me with this. Is TSLA actually developing the fundamental technology for autonomous driving? In what lab? Freemont? Giga? Or is TSLA just implementing the technology of third parties like MLBY? ??
