Uber is an overvalued clusterfuck. At least Tesla and Netflix can achieve economies of scale with its factories. Both Netflix and Tesla still have its original leadership.
I don’t understand how this was able to happen. I used to be in fabrication. I would personally do hardness tests on the material. We know that the supplier screws up, or tries to fuck you by passing along out of spec stock as good, and we also know our purchaser screws up, trying to save a buck usually, or buying the…
Boeing... may have been building airplanes out of substandard metal??? Fuuuuckkkk....
We’ve reached a point where even cars are being built out of the cheapest pot metal available. How long until I can buy a $500 disposable Honda at Harbor Freight?
Under current laws I believe being passed out in the car with keys still counts as a DUI.
I think the comments in relation to rural vs urban driving are key. There are still roads here in PA, that are gravel (granted these are not “main roads” but are still transversable and public roads), many roads with zero center markers (or none at all), and let’s not forget the number of road that actually have lines…
Except that A LOT of people are already paying for the “safety” features like lane departure warnings and etc that adds more than $1000 to the cars as a option.
Neat read. Here’s my MUTCD sitting on my desk:
There is one more significance of the octagonal shape that I didn’t see being mentioned here.
“...you’ll see the letters STOP situated above a crow’s nest-style traffic stand.”
May be overlooking another factor: by 1900 red had meant “stop” on the railroads for 50-plus years.
The dumb thing is they likely DID build cushion into their public timeline which is why a lot of people with any manufacturing experience laughed their asses off while Wall Street went bonkers. Now those same level headed people shrug their shoulders (like the current top comments to the article) and expect strong…
An automated line to do something as simple as secondary packaging of say, syringes, can take months and months to set up beyond the initial design, build, debug, install, etc.
Ive really been wanting to try out Supercruise for myself to see how easy it is to engage, etc. But the package itself costs 5 grand outside of the Platinum trim of the CT6, which then becomes standard. Thats a big pill to swallow. On top of that, Cadillac still has a little problem of their older buyer, who the CT6…
I was lucky enough to test this system 4 or 5 years ago at the GM proving grounds! It had the steering wheel light and the blue indicator to switch lanes and everything. I’m glad to see it has made it’s way to a production vehicle.
Also one of the best album covers of all time....as long as it’s the one without any lettering. That vast expanse of sea for an album titled ‘Nothing’ by a shoegaze band is just perfection!
Give that new album time. It has really grown on me.
40% is probably exaggerated, however look at how many people use cell phones while driving. They swerve within the lanes and often beyond them. I wish there was a phone call only option on all cellphones while in motion.
Fanboys wont see a problem with this, and will liken it to being sort of coming from a boutique automaker a la Aston or Mclaren. But I see through the bullshit and foresee quality problems and suspect panel fittings down the line.
The newspaper reported that Tesla factory workers have been piecing together parts of the cars by hand
