The big thing is cost (which will go down over time with improvements in battery technology), but you also have to figure out charging as well.
The Tesla Model S has a 85 kWh battery bank. The average price for power is 10 cents per kWH in Maryland (even solar). So that's $1.20 to "fill up the tank" in raw power alone. Plus, it's not a quick fill-up.
That's not economical for a gas station. A rest stop or a restaurant (even a Royal Farm)? Drop in the bucket. So you'll have to dot rest stops with charging stations, seating and a lunch counter all over the place.... instead of gas stations. Well, that's a shift in thinking. And something the gas/oil companies aren't ready for.
We definitely need to see him out and about.
If you remember the AIR Presidental Election Algorythm, you'll find that she has to get a damn good vice president, because she's no governor, no head of any college, nothing. She scores a 0, while Martin O'Malley scores a 88 (8 years Maryland governor).
...supenoed Facebook for her current address?
Almost all the reports are getting the gist of the paper wrong -- any press summation that doesn't go into the paper to understand it will get it wrong. The paper goes into deep detail that Apple has several services that, while protected by several layers of security that could be bypassed, can transfer data in the clear. There are also several services that don't have any obvious connecting software.
It's a rather deep hacker-style dive into iOS.
A good video about this is by TWiT Network. At http://twit.tv/sn465 Security Now ep 465 has expert Steve Gibson explain the actual paper.
A Tumblr site popped up a few days ago called OpenSSL Valhalla Rampage. The blogger there is going through all the commits and posting the juicy funny comments there. This includes killing... and rekilling... VMS support (which reminds me of Maxim 37: there is no such thing as overkill...), stripping out now-stupid abstractions and optimizations of the unoptimizables, and more.

Seriously. Search for home, BLIP! and you're there.
I've posted them up on my G+ account, so I'll just link to that instead of repeating myself here. Just remember, though, I come from a 3G to a 4 to a 5.
LibAV's a badly forked version that's several revisions behind FFmpeg. Plus, this is Debian -- non-free codecs like H.264 are stripped out and are probably really supported by a seperate non-free repository.
I'd rather strip LibAV out and compile my own version of FFmpeg for faster encodes.
