I disagree. I have a Tesla Model S and it drives perfectly fine for me every day in stop and go traffic. At higher speeds it works well too but it is prudent to keep a close eye on it. I think autonomous driving in limited situations is still helpful even if it doesn't work everywhere.
I think within a year or two, Tesla will be able to drive long distances on major freeways with little or no human intervention. That's a huge value to me as a driver.
If my car can handle both stop-and-go traffic and long-distance boring driving, I can handle the rest no problem.
Technically Big Brother is the state. You can choose not to use Google products, but in the book 1984 you couldn't choose to avoid Big Brother.
Simple solution: Gaffer's Tape
Actually, the Tesla is very efficient. Accelerating to 100mph with Ludicrous mode doesn't take significantly more energy than without it. Now doing it, stopping, doing it again, again, again, etc, will start to burn the battery.
He put all of his Zip2 money into PayPal, then all of his PayPal money into Tesla and SpaceX. Yes he is also using other peoples' money.
It is a beta feature that requires driver attention. Looking at accident rate I'd say it is clearly safer than human drivers (3-4 accidents in 130 million miles).
This article has nothing to do with somebody dying. Are you talking about the semi truck incident in Florida? Could it have at least something to do with a driver using BETA software NOT paying attention to the road as they were instructed to do numerous times?
It's simple. If you pay $15/hr it comes out of your own pocket. If society takes care of the unemployed the burden is forced onto everybody else too.
Build an awesome CEO or CFO robot and I guarantee you they'll buy them.
Yes, at least in America. I was recently in Dubai and the fast food employees there absolutely loved their jobs and were happy to be there. With few exceptions you don't see that in the US.
So you are saying that if a Walmart employee receives a government subsidy then Walmart effectively received a subsidy?
The government offers free money to people and that presumably allows them to accept a lower wage from Walmart than they would otherwise accept. The employee applies for the job and accepts the wage. The government subsidizes their lifestyle. And that's Walmart's fault?
It is the former CEO, not sure what's in it for him to spread FUD. He is correct; one minimum wage across all skill and experience levels and across all cities and states makes no sense.
I agree; if you aren't hungry, don't eat (breakfast or any other meal). On the other hand I love something in the morning and my preference is Bulletproof Coffee. It is nice because it only contains fat and therefore doesn't get your insulin going right when you wake up.
By dramatically increasing regulations and charging $1 million to review new products before they can be advertised the FDA is giving the industry to big business. Anybody else think that is a horrible idea? We need lots of small businesses to foster innovation and competition in any market.
