You're right about the Plaintalk terminology, and here I thought I could trust Google. It was still a PIA if you happened to have a few dozen Macs that needed headsets, and the cheapos that worked on most PCs didn't work on your Mac. ADC wasn't the Mac's first proprietary video plug, they used the HDI-45 in the 90s. Although not on many models, guess I just got lucky.

"There's no way for the government to set employee / employer agreements in such a way that everyone benefits. "

"Everyone" isn't supposed to benefit. The low-wage workers who were getting screwed out of their wages benefit. The employers who were screwing them lose. Not everything has be win-win to be worth doing.

I mostly agree with you, but I could see Tesla pretty much hand-building the first run of 3s to make sure they get it right. Unlike most car companies, they won't be under as much pressure to crank out as many as they can as quickly as possible. They can start slow then ramp up as they work out the kinks.

"early reviews of Facebook's Oculus Rift and HTC's Vive headsets have reduced non-gamers to tears."

What exactly is that implying? The headsets are so awesome that non-gamers will start gaming? They're so awesome non-gamers are crying because their gaming loved ones will spend all their time playing games again? Motion sickness? WTF?

Tesla is special. But that doesn't mean they're perfect. Everybody has recalls, this isn't a big deal. It's not like their motors or batteries are defective. It's a seat manufactured by a third-party vendor. Happens All. The. Time. Hopefully they'll learn and make their prototype testing more rigorous.
