Good guess. I manage engineers!
Sweet, I'm as smart as a 5th grader!
Then what's the answer?
I am guessing the answer is the north pole...
Ok, I ran around the block. Can I watch some more porn now?
Well I bought a Panasonic TV two years ago and have to go through a "Home" screen before I get what I want. Oh, and there are ads on this home screen. But the worst part? Ads would occasionally appear over the content when using the volume controls. That's right, hit volume up and get an ad from United Airlines!
I did manage to turn off the ads but swore I'd never buy another Panasonic.
The original comment only made the case that Apple did less of it, which I agree. I think it's because their business model doesn't put pressure on them to monetize their users.
You don't need personal knowledge, it's about business platforms. One is about selling hardware for a profit, one is about monetizing users. And the way most companies monetize users is data mining. Spying is their business model.
I think you mean He's still an idiot.
And it seems to me that even an idiot would realize that using bad grammar while calling someone an idiot can make you look like an idiot too.
It's "you're an idiot".
Yes that's a very depressing reality we can agree on. But that doesn't mean we can't be happy that he did the right thing.
I don't think that's the point anyone is making. It's just nice to see someone do the right thing for a change.
This was going to be my point as well, it's a double edged sword. Do you really want people in charge of industries that haven't had significant experience in that industry? Would the board pick someone who never worked as a tech executive to run Apple?
That being said in most cases whatever industry's interests seem to always be favored over the public's, so you have to wonder about loyalties. And count me as one that completed doubted Wheeler. I am happy my cynicism was proved to be wrong (for once).
It discharges fast enough that I can go 100 mph.
And Tesla is working on something for the home. I'm not talking about the grid, I am talking about the home. If you have small storage at the home, then electricity can be stored there and not pumped back into the grid. The house can then run off it during the evening.
I think we are talking about two different things. Yes there are no battery solutions for the grid. But if you push it out to the edge then benefits can be had.
Well my Tesla seems to handle "electric storage" pretty well. So I guess after 100 years we've made some progress.
