In the 70's I was taught that an ice age was coming and "they" had their theory and proof for that.
Didn't happen did it?
Auto pilot is know where near close to being on the streets. Tesla has nothing to do with auto pilot BTW. Google is the company that has gotten the furthest and does have cars on the street being tested.
The 180's are a real possibility. That about where Elong will have a tweet talking about an up coming tweet about something important.
Another thing was in WW2 the US did win by out manufacturing everyone else but they certainly didn't make the highest quality products. German tanks, artillery, planes etc. were all better then the US's. Problem was German got bombed nightly so it was hard to keep the war machine going for Germany.
Ask any historian about US verse German tanks. If a Panzer that worked found US tanks then the US tanks ran for it or were blown away. If those tanks could have been supplied with fuel and spare parts the fight for Europe would have been much different. Same goes for the air war.
If Tesla is going to take over the world the UAW should be organizing the workers right now.
That's when the real fun begins. Ghost jobs, drunk/high workers. 8 guys to do a simple job. Light bulb needs to be changed so one electrician shows up with an apprentice. Union rep who has to be there to make sure UAW rules are strictly up held. Safety supervisor to make sure the work site is safe. 4 guys to rope off the area for safety and to hold the ladder.
That Giga Factory needs UAW reps from the beginning to make sure the building is up to the UAW's standards. The relaxation rooms and bath house have to be up to UAW standards. Work can't be stressful you know.
Then there is the whole money thing, the company will not make money off of the workers. Profit sharing needs to be set up and no matter what Tesla is paying there needs to be a wage hike until the company has no cash left over at the end of the year.
Good times trading auto and related stocks.
Fleet is a little shaky reliability wise. Couldn't see that coming from a mile away, start up niche car maker has quality issues?
GM looks serious about the Bolt, they know how to make a door handles that work. They have enough proven spare parts hanging around to make an entire car. Also GM don't need no stinking Giga Factory batteries.
This is where Joe Blow gets crushed.
Have you seen this car on the streets? Has it passed regulations to be street legal?
So stupid to take what Elong said at face value. You will be disappointed for sure.
Doesn't matter what she said, all that is important is GM has a women CEO. The world is saved. GM has become a progressive modern company.
If Win 10 was so great then why is Win 7 still being sold?
MS is really determines to ram a phone OS down everyone throats, business does not want Win 8 or Win 10. This is becoming a real problem for businesses.
Must have been many since the price is the same as when I fell a sleep in 1999.
Checked out Edge last night and first up was turning off all the MSN stuff. Doesn't seem I can? MS seems determine to pump up it's MSN web site hits and connect me to the cloud. I don't want to be connected to the cloud. Also it appears that Edge can not remove neither can Cortanna? I'm not going to use Cortanna so why can't I get rid of it?
Again why is MS determined to make my laptop into a cell phone? Must go with all the NSA spying software?
No point in using Edge but I thought I would see what I could do with it. I'm impressed MS has turned a browser into bloatware.
Yes cars last much longer now. 11 year old fleet does not surprise me at all. Unless you want bragging rights why buy any car that's not a few years old? Let someone else pay the depreciation?
