Google needs to make a glass without the camera. One that is OBVIOUSLY different to the average person so they do not mistake it for the one with the camera. That could take some of the stigma away from the device. It could look much more like a regular pair of glasses. Sure, half of the applications need the camera, but many ideas do not, and it would reduce the cost. The technology and the software could mature without the social stigma and would have a good chance.
That is a reason why I am not buying. I would love a iPhone 5s2 with a better CPU and Apple pay but same size and build quality of the 5s
Maybe you are right. But the primary thing that needs to be done is up the build quality and make people feel comfortable about the long term prospects for the car. The car has unusual good looks. Rich people will buy it if they think its not gonna leave them stranded. I said $5000 because that gets the car under the magic $100,000 price barrier.
Supply has been limited for both the Tesla S and Roadster. There are multi-month preorders right now and the situation will not improve anytime soon. The Karma with some minor upgrades and maybe a $5000 drop would sell.
The new 7000 cars are being delivered to metro and replacing the 30 year old cars first. Within two years most of the cars will be new again.
Nope. The cost will drop just from them being made in that factory at half speed. Half the savings is from everything being close together, the batteries being made in the building then being put into packs in the same building. More cost savings comes from the fact Tesla is the majority owner, and finally all of the government incentives reducing cost. From just half capacity the cost of the battery will be low enough for a $40,000 car before government incentives. So basically from day 1 they will be fine. They will also be making utility scale batteries which will most certainly have a buyer with Solar City.
Contrary to the other skeptics, I think the plant will be fully booked. As soon as each line is built, it will be running at full tilt for customers including Tesla. They will build out the lines as fast as they can and may even need to consider a SECOND factory by 2020.
I get scratches from keys on my glass with the iPhone 5 and 5s. They are minimal but they do happen.
They don't exempt one specific company by name. They exempt all approved battery producers with over 2000 proposed employees in a certain county or some trick like that. Is if fair? No. But that is how it is done legally.
Or if it was Apple it would be Command-Apple-M while starting the iFission control program.
I would have thought a 16 core config would be an efficient number.
I am not for the tax breaks but the state of Arizona should come out ahead even after them. This factory will represent 3% of the states economy.
Tesla is building the factory for the purpose of getting the cost of batteries down to make a 4 door sedan in the 30k range though I expect it to cost more like 35k in the end AFTER government incentives.
As for the Toyota gas pedal thing, Tesla also got slapped with all of the 'fire' stories even though fires are more common in gas vehicles.
Close. Argentina did not play hardball. The US courts confiscated the money they had access to preventing the payments to the 92%. Argentina will not fund those payments anymore if the US courts re going to take the money before it gets to it's intended recipients.
What makes finding a vaccine or cure such a formidable job is that the virus mutates so quickly. How do you pin down and treat something that is continually changing?
Thomas Webster, professor and chairman of bioengineering and chemical engineering at Northeastern, may have an answer to that — nanotechnology."
