Except slavish clones of popular programs, there are no two apps that have the same feature set. The intent of my comment was to point this out. OTOH, the popular consensus seems to be that Windows Phone has a very limited App ecosystem, so of course your point is valid.

Well, you're such a think-skinned snowflake!

The electrical grid, at least in the US, is not capable of sustaining charging the hypothetical 90% of the domestic fleet converted to EV. Not only generation is an issue, but the transmission, both the long-distance and the local distribution too are already straining under the load.

Regarding the public charging station ubiquitousness, you must live in a special place. At my job at a very large, tech-oriented company in the heart of Silicon Valley, there are no more than 8-10 stations per 100 parking spots, so, if you want to charge your EV while at work, you have to spend quite a lot of time looking for an available station - not very convenient.

Again, the thread was about the many people who don't own a SFH with a private garage and don't live in your city with the abundance of public charging stations. You just got carried away, without trying to understand other people's situation.
