I have a 48G and a 50G. I bought the 50G after the 48G took a swan dive out of a third story window. It survived (I doubt the 50G would). But I didn't want to chance losing it. The 48G stays at home and the 50G stays at work now.

Um, according to the article you cited, $51K was the median household income in the US in 2013, not the poverty line. FTA: "Those making $23,492 a year for a family of four, or $11,720 for an individual were considered to be living in poverty."

Good for the goose and all.
There is a vested interest in driving down wages for those few jobs that remain however.
Now the batteries on the other hand.... Batteries don't hold charge very well in the cold. It's been one of the two big problems for electric cars since the 19th century.
Who needs a hobby that'll bring the cops, battering down your door?
