You're right. If Chinese laborers are so good at what they do why doesn't America Tax those jobs that are overseas by 1.5x's the rates here in America? It would still probably be cheaper but at least America would get some income from these outsourced jobs. It is just a way of evading labor tax laws here in America. Now is Apple to blame for these laws-No! But for Apple to call themselves and American company and toss all their jobs over to China is a middle finger and no faith in America. My company has boycotted all Apple products on the premises. We thew away about 4 million worth of hardware. Bought a butt load of Windows 7 computers. After the IT dept got them config'ed the way users wanted them. They are okay with it. Cool beans. If any employee is seen using an Apple product on the premises they are fired immediately. I bought a load of BB phones to replace those lousy Apple Phone anyways. I pay their cell bills to support my cause-as long as it isn't excessive. Good bye Apple. Every great empire has fallen in history. Now it's your turn. Peace-

Adobe Photoshop Suite/animation software for Pixal. I made the mistake of trying to update servers and ended up blowing over 100k. What a F'in waste. To upgrade all my software will cost another 1/2 million. Not right now and not until 2018. windows 7 is staying.
just curious-why did MS go down after xbox announcement? They didn't demo games and how to use it. I know there is still another demo day-hopefully they demo how to play a game. That is 3/4 of that units purpose. If not gaming, no xbox. Also, what is the price point? If it is more than 500-not sure if it will sell well.
It's a lot of dough for kids/teenagers to shell out. I know XMas b-days and junk like that will get parents to buy them, but really-most of the Xboxes out there were bought by the gamers.
It's not backwards compatible with my expensive software. That really sucs and is a major issue for me. 20k worth of software I can't use on winblows 8.
That's pretty good numbers if 9 month wait.

Projects to about 8K reservations by the end of 2013. Assuming no increase in rate. I'd bet on double that, actually. (2 shifts)
Like Elon said-Tsunami of hurt for shorts. He wants those investors who believe in him to be able to buy one of these cars by buying and selling the stock. Smart man. I can buy one outright at any time but I will wait for the new roadster.
sorry but has he exercised that yet?????? NO. Please shut up whiner. Thank you - you are now on my ignored list.
Elon is playing it like Apple did when it was good under Stevo-smart move and crush the shorts. Exceeding expectations is the only thing he is really focused on to make this company successful. He's doing a great job! Thanks Elon if you read this. If I were still in the workforce I would want to work for your company without question. Peace.
I have put them on my ignore list. Feel free to do the same to me shorts. Shorts just bash and cry and whine just like Sergio Garcia - so immature. Even we who support TSLA know the price is high but we are on front side of the wave having fun. Shorts are on top of the wave cursing, but if you're going to bet against Elon who bought 100 million dollars worth of stock (plus unknown millions worth he got at 7-8 bucks a share and still not selling any)- who knows the inside scoop - I'm sorry you're just dumb and I won't feel sorry for you anymore.
Supercharger, (more stations in US and Europe) model X release date, new batteries coming with longer ranges and lighter, X sales reservations will be about 1.5x expected and be released much quicker than anticipated. Also the announcement of gen III which is being moved forward with the ex-Austin Martin lead technician as the lead tech on that project. Elon knows Gen III is what matters most. Making the car range 200+ miles, 35 entry point - maybe lower - great financing - it looks like the battery warranty length might be increasing due to testing and being very successful. Just look at their website-they are having a major hiring frenzy to get X out the door and Gen III in production.
yup... patience pays off here. Elon will hammer them with the news on that specific day that will blow this stock up another 10-15 just on the news.
This was based on the fact that thousand of people bet against their last quarter report and lost. They are hoping the price dives because they are screwed at this price. 110-130 next Tuesday/Wed.
It is great to see your excitement for Gen III. It is going to be a great car. Gen III is yet to be named yet and we still have to finalize the details of Model X. It is probably going to be at least a year before a list is created for Gen III. Please stay tuned to our website for more details and for updates.
Thank you for your support!
