  • because ROBOTICS... is just "gettin' OFF THE GROUND" ...LIKE "TESLA!"

    Tesla Fremont plant is "already" using a lot of robotics...

    but "robotics" is going "bigger and bigger" because of advances in tech... and biz always after the "cheapest BOTTOM LINE" WAY of "cutting labor costs"...and with THAT MOTIVE in mind...

    MORE 'n MORE stuff is gonna be "robotized..."

    the NEW ECONOMIC PARADIGM is "based on information tech and robotics"

    ...and the "old economics-based paradigm" ...based on the INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION...is rapidly going to be "eclipsed"...

    so "future jobs" WILL NOT BE BASED ON "CHEAP ASIAN LABOR"...that's going bye-bye, too...

    ...........
    I'm not saying "I'm in favor of all this" ...lots of people going to be hurt...

    so best get jobs and training in"

    a. Healthcare
    b. Stuff ...like "truck driving" ...that will still be decades away from being "robotized"
    c. high-tech IT ...that involves "robotics and IT software that runs it, etc."

    this is "gonna suc for a LOT OF PEOPLE"
    ...ME i'M JUST THE MESSENGER... the "objective MESSENGER"...I personally DON'T LIKE A LOT OF WHAT'S COMING... but I can't do much about it... other than give some "forewarning" to those who want to "yet have a job future..."

    flashrob

  • it's CALLED "ROBOTICS" ...and it's WAY CHEAPER THAN EVEN "ASIAN SLAVE LABOR"...

    I KNEW ALL THIS "YEARS AGO" ...but "dummy shorts" keep BEING UNDER THE ILLUSION... that they are "smart and savvy"... guess again shorts...

    oh well... it's TV time... OR "youtube video on LINUX" or NewAge (I'm big into that, too...)

    or "Korean Hotties on DramaFever, Netflix, or Hulu...

    or "maybe a nice nap"... I'll figure out "somethin' to do"... AND THE "PHONE" ... won't be ANSWERIN' THAT...FOR SURE...

    (just occured to me... girlfriend probably "sub teachin'" this week... just figured why she ain't been botherin' me to come over or go out... well THAT ANSWERS "THAT MYSTERY"...

    didn't think of that when "ignored her calls on weekend" ...oh, well I'LL "PICK UP TAB" for a change at Panera's or Chick-fil-A, or wherever...

    I can't eat them "big steak dinners" anymore... so I do "cheapy stuff" when I go out now...even when "she payin'..."

    oh...now I look out at "woods/hills/mountains" from almost any window in house...AND "WOW... no more SNOW... it almost "all be melted" THIS REALLY "BE SPRING!!!
    (live in Hunterdon County NJ...near Clinton (historic town, big farms, hills, woods, etc.)

    great area...but "when so much snow-cover so much this winter" ...I even close blinds and stayed "ho'led up in bedroom" ...just watch TV, knap...whatever...

    now get more optimistic... SPRING FINALLY BE HERE ...more daylight too... like 12 AND 12... was still daylight here 730pm...last night (havin' coffee/smokes in gazebo on deck, etc.)...love that gazebo... don't smoke in house... and I'm out there under-roof quite a few times a day/night ...rain, snow, shine...whatever...

    well have a good one...

    get a "reality check"...THE DOW is "down about 150" ...and "most of the HIGH-FLYER STOCKS like TESLA... nflx, fb, etc. ARE DOWN significantly also...

    that's REALITY...

    if everything else "was flyin' up" and TESLA was weak that day... then I might be "lookin' for a reason...related to TESLA spicifically...

    but on "these kind of days" ...well, IT'S JUST A "GOOD BUYIN' OP" for the "routine cycle BACK UP..."

    got that??? look at the DOW/NAZ ranges FOR A FEW months... routine pullbacks ARE THE "NORM"...

    one step back...TWO STEPS UP... has been the "story of the HIGH-FLYERS" in particular and the "mkt averages" as well....

    the Oracle Virtualbox is "terrific" in most cases (thankyou Larry Ellison Oracle CEO)...I use it a lot... but like everything else... it got a few issues...so I'm gonna try VMWARE... Win 8 comes with a "virtualization" HYPER-V... but missing on my comp...(probably not on this cheapy comp I bought... just because it was so cheap on Amazon... I bought a couple...really a good HP comp... and Win8 is great...but I like to "super-tweak" comp stuff... so...

    THAT'S WHAT "I'M" DOING TODAY... not "wringin' my hands" LIKE MOST OF THE "SHORTS"...

    yeah, I'm a "bit off top" and personal today... BUT ...HEY ...look at the ABUNDANCE of "inantities and hype" being parroted by "vested-interest GUZZLER shorts...etc.

    at least "my stuff" WELL IT COMES under "get a life shorts" BESIDES stayin' glued to the "yahoo Tesla board" ALL DAY...

    flashrob (believe me I LOVE MY "HYPO GUZZLER" ... and I don't spend a lot on gas...as I don't work... and I only been usin' it to go to local stores a couple times a week... so "price of gas" don't matter to me too much in any event...

    if I want to go for a ride... "just call up girlfriend" ...she pick me up... drive... and "bonus" pick up restaurant tab, too... this BE THE LIFE...

    home alone too... doctor be workin'...ditto...for suit sales guy... owner/maid be gone for a few weeks at one of her other houses...

    so I just got to "water houseplants" take out recyclable/trash... do wash if I feel like it... maybe run dishwasher... typical routine "buzy day for me..."

    oh, "simple trick" don't be "answer phone" ...THAT USUALLY be someone who "want bother you" or "want money," usually...so I only "answer phone if I REAL BORED" ...most time I look day or two...who called... and "call back" important calls... otherwise... TV...(Korean hotties)...comps WIN8 & LINUX play with...
    ...
    hey tomorrow "weather" supposed to be 65F... HERE IN NW JERSEY....maybe "take guzzler out for ride in hills" ...maybe give girlfriend a break...

    "whatever..."

    why is HE bashing TESLA...

    a. Elon won't give him a "free-promo-one" ...probably... or it could be

    b. "big vested-interest GUZZLER" knows he is a "center-mouthpiece OF BIG "MEDIA HYPE" ...so it's really pretty simple to figure out...

    c. it's as SIMPLE as... for example... TOPGEAR... that Brit Car Show (which is really good...by-the-way... I watch it once in a while...

    but TOPGEAR has a "vested interest" IN "GUZZLER VEHICLES" ...and obviously THEY DON'T WANT TO KEEP STICKIN' .......TESLA PERFORMANCE and "technical superiority" IN THEIR "AUDIENCE'S FACE"... like

    EVEN "I" don't expect them TO "PUT THEMSELVES OUT OF BIZ...etc."

    BUT "I HAVE NO DOUBT" in all "common sense" ...WHY THEY "MINIMIZE PURE EV's"

    .........
    all this is JUST PLAIN "GOOD OLD COMMON SENSE"...

    ........
    i watch FOX NEWS once in a while too... (Megan is pretty hot...) BUT I JUST LIKE TO SEE WHAT "MEDIA HYPE THEY SPINNIN' ABOUT THE "PUBS"...etc.

    .......
    things are as simple AS A "CRIMINAL CASE" and NEITHER THE "PROSECUTOR or THE DEFENSE ATTORNEY...
    ...is "purely AFTER THE TRUTH..."

    THEY BOTH "MAINLY ..."want to WIN THE CASE"...and resort to "every trick and technicality and "massaging of the LAW" to accomplish that end...
    ......

    so MANY OF THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE... are TOO BUSY to really be concerned about the fortunes of TESLA and it's stock, etc.
    ........
    I'm not on this board to hype TESLA or make money... I'M JUST ABOUT "STICKIN' SOME "OBJECTIVITY" on the boards...

    ........
    in actuality... TODAY...

    a. I got to get ORACLE's VM (virtual machine) running ONE OF MY FAVORITY "LINUX DISTRIBUTIONS (linux mint qiana 17 with XFCE desktop overlay on it)... well that's what I'm screwin' with today... (this I'm doin' in a win8 HP laptop)... (I got 5...no 4 laptops now...just sent my brother in Texas one...)

    b. anyway, I'm probably gonna get a copy of VMWARE vm... AS I'm having a problem gettin a "heavy duty" version of Linux into Virtualbox (that's Oracle stuff)...
    the Oracle Virtualbox...

  • just "google search" this:

    Ford recalls over 220,000 vehicles in North America for three issues

    .............................................................................

    bad enough they have problems in trailin' TESLA with standard issue...

    ...but worse "when too many" of ALL THOSE "BIG NUMBERS" they produce... HAVE TO BE "RECALLED!"

  • flashrob flashrob Mar 24, 2015 2:29 PM Flag

    and SINCE for the "time being" YOU CAN COUNT ON THE "MONEY CROWD" to buy TESLA S... that's what Elong is DOING...

    later on AS JOBS AND "PURCHASING CAPABILITY" of the masses come "more into play"l... right on schedule ELON will be putting out the "less expensive X, etc."

    it's all GOING ACCORDING TO "SMART THINKING ELON'S PLANS"...

  • flashrob flashrob Mar 24, 2015 2:01 PM Flag

    two BIG things "wrong" with your thinking "SHORT!"

    a. the NISSAN leaf is the "cheapy MASS MKT niche" AND SHOULD SELL MORE CARS... if you remember Elon even gave his patents away... TO ENCOURAGE other "mfrs" TO GET ON THE "PURE EV electric bandwagon" ...THAT'S BECAUSE he wants "pure ev to become DOMINANT in thinking and in increasing purchases...

    b. TESLA S ...is the "Porsche type killer"...HI-END "PURE EV" to replace "high-end GUZZLER"

    ...............
    SO, THE MORE "NISSAN SELLS LEAFS" the "BETTER IT IS FOR TESLA!"

    .............
    that's why you SHORTS keep losin' most of the time...YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND that people like ELON ...got "all this strategy FIGURED IN... not a chance for "amateurs" TO FIGURE THIS OUT... even the BIG PRO INVESTORS...have some trouble with this...

    but THAT'S THE REASON TESLA STOCK is so well "supported BY BIG-FUND MONEY...because they SEE MOST OF ELON'S STRATEGY AND DELIVERY ...and how he just keeps "expanding his operations...

    better GET LONG "short" .... "see the LIGHT???"

  • flashrob flashrob Mar 23, 2015 2:53 PM Flag

    we can all tell YOU BEEN "PULLIN' YOUR TRIGGER... WAY TOO MUCH TODAY SHORT...

    priest used to say "YA GO BLIND IF YOU KEEP DOIN' THAT!"

    (won't get any longer that way, either... no matter how hard and how often you pull it...)

    there is a way for you to BE LONG... buy...buy...buy Tesla stock!

  • just google search this:

    GM ignition switch death toll increases to 74

    TESLA don't have to have much in the way of earnings... safety record will guarantee them a BIG FUTURE...

    some like GM ...dropped their balls so badly... even without Tesla breathin' down their neck... they are in poor shape going forward...

    and this ain't even due to "expected liabilities" ...like:

    a. huge pension millstone ...for a long time
    b. main rustbelt location in Polarville
    c. gov loans... did they ever pay them off
    d. square miles of "dealer-buddy" unsold inventory globally
    e. OUTDATED (TOO MANY PARTS) GUZZLER TECHNOLOGY...

    oh, well now we know WHY THEIR STOCK IS "PRICED WHERE IT IS" ...and STAYS for years...

    TESLA runs on C O A L

    by cloudhermit Mar 23, 2015 2:31 AM
    flashrob flashrob Mar 23, 2015 5:15 AM Flag

    simple point about THE ILLUSION of "the electricity for Tesla" coming from COAL...

    a. charging a TESLA is about like "burning an EXTRA 100watt lightbulb 24/7...

    b. with JUST the front/rear door outside "night lights" (a few others on property)...I use THAT MUCH ELEC...without even having a TESLA...

    c. THE "REALITY AND THE BOTTOM LINE" is that the amount of electricity (WHICH IS THE SAME FOR THE HOUSE whether it comes from coal, nuclear...whatever) TO POWER A TESLA is "BASICALLY... "A NON ISSUE" ...just BS the shorts TRY TO HYPE...
    ...ANYONE with an "ounce of common sense" KNOWS THIS...

    I have also found that "most people" are not that "super eco friendly" ...THEY ARE JUST "PRACTICAL!"

    meaning: when I buy a TESLA ...yeah, it's nice that "I help the environment" ...but THE BASE REASON...is I get a PORSCHE LIKE CAR... in terms of luxury, performance, etc. BUT I "SAVE BIG-TIME ON GASOLINE"

    THE "OIL INDUSTRY" already KNOWS "oil will eventually" SETTLE BACK around $70.... It will still probably hover back and forth, for a while, in this 45-52 range... but that has a lot to do with speculators, disruptions...

    the REALITY of all that is: eventually SUPPLY goes down in a "leveling off REVERSE CYCLE" after another "frackers" and other "on the investment edge" speculators... GO OUT OF BIZ, etc.

    so GASOLINE will once again return to 3.5/ 4 dollars a gallon... plus with the "smog actions" by major cities like Paris, France... and probably soon to be MANY OTHER GLOBAL CITIES... well, it's BASICALLY going to increasingly RAMP UP against "big guzzler" in the cities...

    meaning TESLA (for the high end Porsche niche)... and Nissan Leaf for the "bargain min" mass U.S. mkt niche...and Kandi ...for the CHINA cheapy mkt niche...

    ALL THIS IS "OBVIOUS" what's coming "down the pike" AND INCREASINGLY SO...

    "big guzzler" IN MAJOR GLOBAL CITIES AND densely populated other URBAN AREAS... well they're "already LETTERING GUZZLER'S TOMBSTONE...for these areas...

  • flashrob flashrob Mar 22, 2015 7:00 PM Flag

    the CONCENTRATION of the POLLUTION is "IN THE CITIES" ...WHERE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE'S LUNGS are being impacted...

    this is "regardless" OF THE EXISTING TECH that supplies the electricity... THAT'S AN ISSUE TOO...

    but THE IMMEDIATE PROBLEM IS "INCREASING CITY SMOG due to GUZZLER EMISSIONS..."

    it's TWO separate issues... WE ADDRESS THE "CITY SMOG BREATHING" ONE ...FIRST...by getting RID OF GUZZLER EMISSIONS in our "large polluted cities"... AS "PARIS, FRANCE" is STARTING TO DO...

    we'll get to replacing coal, oil, and nuclear... later on... DEAL WITH what can be done rather quickly...

    when people AND MOST DON'T LIKE THE "COMPLEXITY OF RIDE SHARING, etc." AND ALL THAT... start having TO MAKE THOSE COMPLEX AND SCHEDULE-SCREWING-UP...ADJUSTMENTS... because OF "MORE AND MORE "ODD/EVEN LICENSE PLATE DAYS" in major cities and urban areas LIKE PARIS...

    you're gonna see A FLOOD OF INCREASED SALES ON "PURE" EVs...unless you "want to take the bus" ...ride your bike (maybe in the snow/rain"...

    or do the "complex coordination" and extra time wasted IN "RIDE SHARING"...

    this WILL BE A "NO-BRAINER" for most... SAVE AND GAS... and can "take your TESLA ...into the CITY ...EVERYDAY...
    ...HEY... YOU CAN EVEN "PAY FOR YOUR TESLA...BY CHARGING YOUR RIDERS... IN YOUR BIG TESLA...for a "guaranteed ride" EVERY-DAY...

    NOT GET UP A "HOUR EARLY" EVERY DAY ...to catch the EARLY NEWS and FIND OUT WHETHER "EVEN/ODD" IS IN EFFECT THAT DAY (like all of a sudden due to stagant air caused by last minute change in the weather...)

    who's gonna wanna go thru "all that #$%$" JUST TO GET TO WORK...

    the JOB is "tough enough ALREADY!"...

    YOU SHORTS "ARE GETTING SO "DESPERATE"...

    a. now your outright BLATANTLY LIEING...

    b. the "whole world" and most of the "power systems" THE WHOLE WORLD USES... are based on "the end of the power pipeline" BEING ELECTRICITY... AC for most... AND DC for cars, batteries, etc.

    c. Now "you shorts are SO DESPARATE" your ATTACKING "the MAIN POWER "ELECTRICITY" ...ITSELF...well, good luck with that...

    d. the CLEANEST POWER the world uses in large scale... IS ELECTRICITY...
    we use POLLUTING METHODS like nuclear, coal, burning "fossil fuels" to generate some of it...

    e. but OF COURSE "the BEST WAYS to generate electricity...ARE NON-POLLUTING systems like: SOLAR... WATER-POWERED TURBINES... etc. ...these gives us MAXIMUM "low-pollution electric power generation."

    f. the WORLD is "not going to stop using ELECTRICITY" ...the BEST ANTI-POLLUTION methodologies ...ARE TO SIMPLY "MINIMIZE THE USE OF POLLUTING SYSTEMS" like coal, oil, nuclear, etc. TO GENERATE IT to the "end-user product" THAT POWERS OUR HOMES, FACTORIES, ETC. ...and ALSO "NOW" are VEHICLES!!!

    that's the REALITY OF THE FUTURE OF "ELECTRIC USE AND IT'S GENERATION"

    a. first homes, factories, whatever...

    b. AND "NOW" ...ALL our vehicles, TOO...

    "wake up and SMELL THE ROSES SHORTS" ...YOU'RE DENIAL or trying to protect "vested interest power generation type polluters... WELL YOU'RE "JUST WASTING YOUR TIME"

    YOU'RE "GOING DOWN... and will be REPLACED "in the future"...JUST LIKE "HENRY FORD" CRUSHED THE "vested-interest HORSEY SET!"
