Musk is smart to focus on medical applications, where even an implant that functions poorly is much better than the alternative. It's a lot easier to make a pacemaker than to perform a heart transplant, and the same holds true for the brain.
Musk is very good at taking seemingly impossible goals and breaking them down into more achievable ones. Medical implants for the disabled are likely a stepping stone for brain enhancement on healthy individuals.
Another example of this method:
1. Invest in a high performance, low volume, electric vehicle. Profit.
2. Invest in a high end, luxury, electric vehicle. Profit
3. Invest in a high volume electric vehicle. End goal.
In the very short term, at a bar, eating salty snacks definitely makes you thirsty at the moment - the body wants to balance the intake of salt and water - basically to the wash the salty taste out of your mouth, when it's very salty.
Sounds like a storage cycle to me. Eat salty food, drink more. Once the salt is secreted from the body, the water goes too. If you keep replenishing the salt, the water doesn't leave the body.
And more review costs more. And more testing costs even more than more review. So managers aren't a big fan of either.
Customers typically aren't willing to pay more for a product based on its quality review process. They will assess the quality of the product themselves, or by word of mouth. Managers don't care about quality review because the customers don't either.
Keep in mind, review and testing don't make the product good, the developers do. Review and testing are just there to keep the developer in check. If developers were infallible, testing would be a complete waste of resources.
Unfortunately, developers are human, and all humans make mistakes. So, how much review and testing is appropriate? Here's a few clues:
1. Does a bug put someone's life in jeopardy?
2. How much financial risk can a bug expose the customer or company to?
3. How many bugs has the development team made in the past?
When you are testing medical devices or financial software, test the hell out of it. If you have excellent developers making a game, you might want to consider skipping review and test.
There's one simple scenario that prevents this from happening:
1. Go to expensive college.
3. File for bankruptcy immediately.
Most college students have no assets and poor credit. There is no downside to filing for bankruptcy. An established adult with a house and a car are a different story. Creditors can go after that persons house, car, retirement savings, etc.
The added blurriness is too much to justify it.
Motion in photography creates blur. The blur was always there, you just didn't notice it while the video was shaky. Your brain expects it to be there. Once all of the motion is gone, your brain will notice the blur.
Basically, it's all in your head.
