It’s possible Mary Barra should be getting a lot more credit than she currently is.

First Gear: Never underestimate the staying power you gain by being able to Google something. It’s true that anyone can type words into Google and get a result, but most of the effectiveness comes from knowing what to type, finding some random forum post from 4 years ago, looking through it to decipher the useful Read more

Ford sells over a million trucks per year. It is blatantly obvious that they’re building trucks people want to buy. What you want will never happen for the price you demand with today’s safety regulations. Ever.

Erik’s whole shtick is underinformed sarcasm and negativity. There’s a valid story here about the 737 MAX returning to flying and earning back trust from fliers, but he instead decided to just kind of imply it’s still dangerous.

I would have no qualms flying an *unfixed* American Airlines 737-Max. I trust that their pilots are sufficiently trained, experienced, and informed, to deal with the situation if necessary. And that they have the organization to not say a broken airplane is fixed, then not test it, then not tell the new crew that it Read more

My buddy’s ‘88 Turbo Ranger (2.3L Turbo, T5) used to blow snow through the vents, directly into your face, all while terrifying the shit out of you on snowy roads.

Exactly. Not on autopilot (for nearly a minute before the crash) and the driver’s foot was on the throttle. This is a bad driver story, not a Tesla story. The only reason we’re talking about it is because Teslas have cameras built in and they capture bad driver behavior and go viral.

Markets love a split government, primarily because it’s much harder for the government to do anything really stupid or disruptive. When there’s a mandate, things get scary for investors. Read more

Damn, you’re not far off. Our $/kWh average in the southwest is about half of the average in Mass. (the state I googled): 10.5 cents/kWh vs. 21.1 cents. And it’s 5.5 cents/kWh overnight on the EV plan; I’m not sure if they have anything like that over there. What would cost us $20 for an EV is $80 in Mass, whereas Read more
