I have not eaten pizza for quite a period, however, just in the past several weeks I have been introduced to pizza with tastes markedly superior found at the even good local pizzerias I patronized in the past.
The first was a pretty small chain that had a crust that had a taste and consistency new to me. Moreover, I found it superior to previous experience. The store was just out side of D.C. and the pricing was in the premium range for a slice. But it was worth it [perhaps unfairly assessed, in neither case did I pick up the bill].
The second might not be a chain or franchise operation at all, but it was even better than the one described above. Here one walks through a line with an individual preparing a custom created pizza to your choices of flour, sauce, cheese, toppings: vegetables and meats along with a selection of final touches after baking. For those skewing to the mass market versions, robotic pizzas will suffice and probably win on price. However, for those with a more functional palate higher quality particularly when combined with personal choice will win out. Nonetheless, the latter will sadly be the smaller market albeit perhaps the more profitable. [This time I paid the entire bill and I look forward to a return visit.]
I wonder, we may not have any other choice than to rush towards an autonomous AI entity. Otherwise with our patently psychotic tendencies for mass murder and destruction all other traces of humanity could potentially disappear. One need only look at our tepid response to too visible emergencies (other than our self serving fear) to the on going medical crisis (e.g. Ebola, drug resistant bacteria, self inflicted bad food / drugs
Perhaps it will be wiser than we have been.
Look how many supposed supporters of unbridled capitalism, opt to impose state rules making entry nearly impossible via compliant state legislative acts. Could, just by chance, your state allow sales only through dealerships? If so that might partially explain your not seeing them, I know it took a very long time before hybrids were common in this area.
Also could the implicit antipathy be due to its association with belief that climate change is both real and mostly due to human sources?
You seem to have a better grasp on what makes business sense for a company that has been floundering, albeit with scads of cash.
So have your resume handy, if they do not call the Ballmer back.
If it's not the latter, Good Luck with your new endeavor.
Agreed, the number I heard on CNBC was Tesla saying they would deliver 60K while the production rate would reach 100K* at the end of the year.
* Slightly below 100K, since the number quoted was 1,900 per week, which for the 52 weeks comes to 98.8K. This presumes no down time (weeks) or other unexpected production delays / stoppage due to unexpected causes.
I would have used different words expressing essentially the same sentiment.

We lack the budget to get there, otherwise we would. Be realistic, please.
NYC system has a 24 hour schedule, the last I heard.
I think even the London may operate more hours than does the Hong Kong system (the link I found on service hours for H.K. was imprecise, i.e. [approx.] early morning to late at night every day of the year], which at worse comes close to the London hours of service.
Both NYC and London systems are both near one hundred or more years older, which means they are more maintenance intensive. Moreover, the former (and presumably the latter) are comprised of an amalgam of irrationally constructed competing systems that have been only partially made a more rational whole by closures, by new construction and by attempts to connect lines.
I know this does not address the supposed A.I. aspect, but a system built much later has advantages in the tools they employ.
Would you care to show your numbers supporting your estimate?
Using 1,863 miles per charge and an average yearly milage of 15,000 I get only a fraction over 8 changes per year. That number is still to many if done at a dealership given the expense in time and currency.
To cite a Fox News site as you hurl the acusation that the other party is ignorant and needs to be educated implies you are the one with deficiencies that will not be remedied by any call to reason or logic. Only a true true believer can give Fox News as a source that delivers unvarished truth . Thus, cease with the name calling unless and until you are willing tol stand behind your words with a real identity, even then do not expect rapture to follow.
