1) "Because no one wants them"
Want is completely subjective. People frequently do not know what they want. Your argument is essentially that people are stupid... ?

2) "I don't want some idiot behind the wheel falling asleep or into a trance"
I think people falling asleep behind the wheel is more about highway hypnosis/poor sleep/alcoholism, than the lack of sound. Also, how is the lack of sound supposed to induce a trance?

3) "you can use them as a coffin when they get into an accident with a real car :)"
Sure, they make great coffins, if you're stupid enough to believe that most, or even all EV's are anything like a Smart car.

Your arguments are worthless, and you should be moderated down.

What's wrong with 15 minutes recharge time? Common, admit it pal, you are straw-manning charge station over there at Costco. A good 440 Volt charging station makes anyone with an EV, in Texas-speak, happier than a two with dog with two peckers. I'll bet you've never used an EV, and the concept concept of driving an EV just don't get your cows a runn'in, unless you can go Muddin' in one! 'Merica!

Just in case you hadn't heard about this, there is an alternative to purchasing Automobiles called Leasing? The relatively low price point is from the automaker already recouping its money from the lease, and the low demand in the market. But go ahead, don't buy the cheapest car you could possibly own, everyone else is much better off profiting from your poor choices! :D

Bullshit, Bullshit. Maintenance is, in the parlance of automobiles, is anticipated service not in response to a component failure, but "the act of inspecting or testing the condition of car subsystems (e.g., engine) and servicing or replacing parts and fluids" ... "parts are replaced to avoid major damage or for safety reasons, e.g. timing belt replacement". Why don't you walk into a dealership and ask about the maintenance schedule for a Nissan Leaf; (Spoiler alert) It's laughably short, and almost entirely Inspection. however, they did mention the optional replacement of an in-cabin air filter.


All of the 440 Volt (CHAdeMO) charging stations I visit in Kansas City, are 100% free, and I typically DO NOT shop at those location while charging (mostly because it only takes 15 minutes).

I don't care how cheep gas gets, Plenty of EV charging stations are 100% free. Last I checked, no one in my area was giving away free gas?

Further, people are obviously uninformed or misled on how EV's are, in the most important ways, superior automobiles for the daily use:

1) ZERO MAINTENANCE (except for breaks & tires, wipers/fluid)
2) Vastly fewer points of failure - NO: fuel pumps, alternators, starters, automatic transmission(unless you count a 1 speed transmission), main seals, mufflers, fuel injectors, heater cores, etc., etc...
3) Electricity is far cheaper than any gas any where every day.
4) Used EV's are SUPER CHEAP right now - http://goo.gl/ZAJV81
5) EV's are super quiet, peaceful, meditative.

Comment: Got Fiber? (Score 1) 101

I'm a current TWC customer, and my neighborhood/fiberhood just met the signup requirement for Google Fiber. As I wait for the construction to be completed, I'm really thinking about the future of the internet. How can companies TWC and Comcast continue to thrive? Everyone on my block is openly negative about their service. Fiber-hoods keep rolling out synchronous gigabit Internet. Construction crews are getting much faster at installing fiber conduit with these strange pneumatic hole burrowing machines, which is no doubt contributing to other ISP's are following suit with an increasing nomber of workers that know the tools of the trade well. My Dad is getting fiber at his backwoods cabin in the Lake of the Ozarks!! How long before these jokers stop fooling themselves? When I roll into the TWC office to return their gear and pay my final bill, I'll be pulling a wagon full of pennies, and justice will be served!

Sure, Node.js and Java are competing in the same space; the bigger question is how? The answer to that question is Single Page Applications, or SPA. Single Page Applications are becoming very popular with new developers (I believe) because they just make better sense. For FAR too long, Java EE architects have done their very best to mitigate the separation of Client & Server. Take JSF, for Example: the entire JSF UI development experience almost lets you forget that the UI and the server context are in the same memory space. But reality frequently comes crashing down the moment you step off of the beaten path.

Enter the SPA! Angular, Backbone, etc. all rely on RESTful API's, and DO NOT CARE if it is Node.js, Java, .NET, etc. SPA’s make a full and clean break between the Client and Server realm, then only thing they share is the common midpoint of the RESTful interface; making fight less about Node.js vs Java, and more about distinguishing what you need from a back end server.

My general assertion: Node.js will continue to gain popularity and displace many competitors. Java will going to continue to dominate the enterprise market for years to come, especially with the support of specialized frameworks and utilities like Spring, Maven, Hudson, and Junit. (honorable mention for gradle)
