Personal transportion hasn't quite caught up to peakness, maybe. I don't know that electric vehicles are it or not. EVs are slowly gaining popularity (maybe like early days of cellphones, say early 1990's).
I'm seeing an increase in the number of stories about consumer purchasing falling off, with more and more desperation on the part of marketing and sales departments. I'm only mildly surprised that no government has tried to mandate something like google glass to force advertisements on their citizens. Or something equally onerous!
Is this possibly the beginning of the end for capitalism?
As an aside. Apple has made me, an American who loves his country, hate them (Apple). I could not possibly care less about their fortunes. But I can still read articles about them for industry and cultural trends.
