Great, except you just spammed the board with an anti-spamming message.
Did you really need to start a new post instead of commenting on one already started by the

How long do you have to be a member before you realize what a scam this company is? That said., with all the hype involved with this stock, there is money to be made on the swings if youre a day trader. I agree with ax that no investor who does research will get involved in this gamble.
Where do you see MPO in six months? Amazing that its up so much today, you think they can
come out of this next year?
You actually turning bullish for 2016?
4:46 pm Midstates Petroleum EVP and COO Mark E. Eck will resign from his position effective January 4, 2016 to pursue other opportunities : His duties and responsibilities will be assumed by other members of the Co's management team.
Tesla has already shipped more than a dozen Model X's. They'll get the doors and seats right soon, and they'll be no stopping them! ... assuming the next secondary offering is successful.
Car was dropped off the truck, but you can hardly notice now.
Ford Gets Fast And Furious In EV Race Against Tesla
BY JAMES DETAR, INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY
Ford Motor (NYSE:F) said after the market closed Thursday that it's investing another $4.5 billion in electric vehicles, ratcheting up competition in the rapidly emerging EV market.
Ford will make the investment by 2020 to develop and enhance EVs, including the new Focus Electric with a new DC fast-charge capability that it said delivers 80% charge in an estimated 30 minutes and delivers about 100 mile range. Fast charging and mileage range are seen as keys to market acceptance of EVs.
The No. 2 U.S. automaker said it will add 13 new EVs to its lineup by 2020, and more than 40% of Ford's brands will be electric vehicles by decade-end.
At 50k cars a year, they're a novelty. If they'd kept to schedule and got the Model 3 out before the competition, they would have had a shot. As it is, GM, VW, and other manufacturers are coming out with offerings that will make it hard for Tesla to succeed at the lower end.
Two new patents were recently awarded to Google that are related to its autonomous car technology, according to recent reports.
The two new patents are for: interior design elements, and for external screens and speakers. The first patent pertains mostly to the sorts of design changes that are necessary if one is to remove the interior steering wheel; and the second one pertains mostly to the sorts of systems that will be needed to improve pedestrian/bicyclist awareness of the car.
site Gas 2 provides a bit more info:
Google has also been awarded a second patent covering a variety of external screens and a speaker, all of which are intended to allow the car to interact with pedestrians and bicyclists.
The car could announce sweetly to people waiting to get to the other side of the road, “It is now safe to cross. I will wait for you.” Screens mounted on the hood and each door could also indicate to those outside the car when it is safe to cross ahead of it and when it is not, according to a report in the Washington Post.
Interesting. The pics are about what I was expecting… What I’m really wanting to know, though, is when people will be able to begin buying these.
A total of $6.6 million in new funding has been awarded by ARPA-E to two projects currently working to develop manufacturing techniques for ceramic electrolytes for solid-state electric vehicle batteries, as part of a new 2015 OPEN funding round. The new round is seeing $125 million awarded to 41 different projects.
The $6.6 million will be divided thusly: $3.5 million going to a consortium headed by the University of Michigan, and $3.1 million going to Corning Incorporated.
For some basic background here, solid-state lithium batteries are a promising technology owing to the fact that energy density could potentially be doubled from that of the lithium-ion batteries currently in use. Another possible advantage is the elimination of the use of conventional flammable electrolytes.
Here’s a brief overview of the two projects via Green Car Congress:
In a project labeled “Transitioning Advanced Ceramic Electrolytes into Manufacturable Solid-State EV Batteries,” researchers at the University of Michigan and partners will develop new electrode structures and manufacturing techniques to incorporate Lithium (Li)-conducting ceramic electrolytes into solid-state batteries. The U-M project is led by Jeff Sakamoto, an associate professor of mechanical engineering, who is also affiliated with with U-M’s Energy Institute. Like many energy storage researchers, Sakamoto has been exploring solid-state batteries, which don’t use a liquid electrolyte. Liquid electrolyte contributes to many of the lithium-ion battery’s limitations. His APRA-E proposal aims for an inexpensive, highly efficient solid-state battery that is tough and safe enough to power a vehicle.
In Corning’s project, “Roll-to-Roll Processing Ceramic Battery Electrolyte,” researchers there will develop roll-to-roll manufacturing techniques to produce thin ceramic electrolytes for solid-state batteries. The technology developed in this project is intended to enable solid-state batteries to be produced economically.
They will probably have a monopoly on Mars for the first 100 years or so.
Musk will just tool around in his pressurized Model X, enjoying retirement.
But the smartest people are jumping ship to Google, Apple, Faraday, ... anywhere they can.
There's a reason Musk is now doing interviews, he wants to insure they hire only fanatics
that are likely to stay as things continue to get worse as competition relentlessly chews on Tesla.
From what I'm gathering, they were able to basically hand make seats / interior parts for the
few cars they delivered?
They fired Futuris last month and have brought the seat manufacturing inhouse, which is where the bottleneck is? How does a project get away from them this badly?
