Also, from reading 1 gallon of gas = 1 battery charge = 10 kilowatt hours

10 kilowatt hours on time of use is like 50 cents
1 gallon of gas is about \$2.50
1 battery charge gets you around 40 miles

looks cheap if you can avoid using gas

I live in Arizona and I've replaced the battery in my black car every 22 months like clockwork due to the heat. (yay 10 year warranties)

I can't imagine the Volt or anything else that uses a battery will do well in Arizona after about 2-3 years.

I take it you've never been on international flights when some guy blows the circuit to your row of the plane for a 8-12 hour flight. I can live without laptop power at your seat if it means I can have light.

This doesn't work if the majority of your users have javascript blocked for 3rd party domains. Doesn't everyone block 3rd party domains? Now we are back to frames being evil.

You could see an end to some toll roads. The toll would be paid for by the business the road benefits. Similar to how Vegas has cheap flights. If you were to build Vegas between LA and Phoenix and cut the time down from 8 hours to 2 hours and half way you could stop at a place of gambling, shopping and debauchery, would you take a plane (3 hours) or your car with a light rail augment(2 hours)?

His math is a little off but the returned item still has a cost of 250 to the business plus the new one they send out for 250. So you have a maximum of a \$500 cost for a return. The components dont cost that much but assuming you are making 50 per unit, every return costs a maximum of \$400(old parts + new parts). So you need to sell 8(400/50) for every 1 that gets returned. Your margins now suck if more than 1 out of 30 get returned.
