    Toyota and Suzuki Announce Electric Car Partnership

    Hydrogen has failed. It takes more energy to make than just storing the electricity in the base-ev battery (not even taking into account transport or pressurization), it's highly explosive, it's hard to contain, and it comes from either pure drinking water (which is becoming more scarce) or from...

    Toyota and Suzuki Announce Electric Car Partnership

    Lol can always depend on you to spread lies. No one was talking about EVs until EV1 which was the first major release of an EV for nearly 100 years. At that point battery technology wasn't there. Guess what? After a few doubling times, price per mile per battery size have gotten to the point...

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

    Max speed and acceleration are two different things. EVs accelerate very fast. If you're going 75 there's still plenty of speed-range to accelerate in your case

    Which is why banks have fraud units. It's not hard for an AI to determine this kind of behavior. Have in the law that it's a punishable offense. Problem solved either through fine or, in the case of the really poor and dumb, jail

    Tesla Launches New Supercharger with 1,000 MPH Charging, Better Efficiency, and More

    Philadelphia Passes Ban on Cashless Stores; Amazon Go Plans Said to Be in Jeopardy

    I know what Phily is trying to do but it's the wrong approach. What Philly needs to do it have a way for the who do not have a bank account to have one - force the banks to give anyone that asks for it a bank accounts and a debit card. Money gets deposited and debit card can be used. No money...

    Tesla Is Unveiling Its All-Electric Crossover, the Model Y, on March 14

    Singaporean Retailer Lists Purported Ryzen 3000 Pricing

    As long as the motherboard has an AM4 slot it'll support any 3rd generation ryzen. I may stick with my B350 motherboard (1st generation AM4 mortherboard) as it has everything i need still. Just make sure to upgrade the bios prior to installing a newer chip as it probably won't boot otherwise.

    Old BioWare Has Become "A Distant Memory"

    I can tell you're not in software engineering. The key thing about programming is it takes time to get a new programmer up to speed during which time the others on the team will lose time answering questions from the new programmer. A programmer with 10+ years experience can get up to speed in...

    Tesla Launches $35,000 Standard Model 3

    Good post but save your breath. I've already tried to show Nutzo that he can save money by installing solar in CA and how it's cheaper to drive an EV even with expensive electricity. At this point all he want's to do is QQ Until he wants to face reality it's best to just let him whine like a child

    Tesla Launches $35,000 Standard Model 3

    How much does your electricity cost per kWh? At 12 cents per kWh, the Model 3 costs about 3 cents per mile. For comparison a 40 mile/gal car costs roughly 6 cents per miles with gas at $2.50 / gal If you buy a Tesla you really should get a 40 amp 240 volt plug put into you garage for charging...

    Tesla Launches $35,000 Standard Model 3

    Actually the cost is 3 cents per mile with electricity @ 12 cents /kWh (average us price) and even cheaper for me with 8 cents and actually free for me after the price of solar panels. At least for the Model 3 I have not seen much in the way of reduced milage in Co. I'm still able to drive...

    Tesla Launches $35,000 Standard Model 3

    The model 3 is designed for the future where it drives itself. As a Model 3 owner I can say there's no difference between buttons on a well designed interface and classical buttons. Looks a hell of a lot nicer too without all those ugly buttons filling the car's dash

    Tesla's Autopilot Reduced Crashes by 40 Percent, but Not Really

    I will be the first to admit i do not often read statistical analysis. I tried reading this and what I go was they took a subset of data, transformed it, and spit it on a wall as saw what stuck... The NHTSA data is also questionable as they took a subset of data as well - roughly 1% of total...

    You assume that time will fix all bugs. This is incorrect. Even the best programmer makes mistakes. In either case, this system will catch bugs/mistakes immediately - when the cost to fix them is very cheap - instead of a few weeks/months/years down the line when it's much more expensive. Just...
