Absolute fantasy that most private companies are in business to do good in the world. They only do this to make you think you are working for a company that cares because it improves output and gets a positive image into customers minds. If it positively impacted their bottom line to do evil, they would. It happens daily. An obvious example is dieselgate.

I have a lot of LGB friends and relatives, they aren't impressed with the shoehorning of other colors over the top of the rainbow ( that's kinda the point of s rainbow... it already represents all colors )
It's basically a metaphor about all of the recent additional woke movements trying to latch on.

That's a lot of money to spend on a product still in alpha stage of development after 10 years which will likely never come out...

Is this just a fancy doom mod?

Looks like it could be fun.

Metaverse lol

I swear Zuckerbergs entire life is just a plagiarisation of the Michael Douglas / Demi Moore movie "Disclosure". They basically invent the metaverse in 1994... there's way too many similarities and Zuckerbergs wife even looks like the actor playing Michael Douglas's secretary...

VR is niche product, there's no way the entire Facebook community of mostly 40 year olds is going to suddenly start wearing uncomfortable and stupid looking headsets all day. Especially if they have to buy them. The reason online stuff works is because everyone already has devices for things other than social media. And also because you don't have blindfold yourself and swing your arms around.

Anyone know the latest on his failed bid to buy twitter? Dizzy

Twitter appears to be at least 20% bot accounts... and who wants to buy that?

Maybe we should put statins in our drinking water.

or people can just take responsibility for themselves and not shove dead animals (the only dietary source of cholesterol around) into their mouths...

Good ol Wired, pretend Musk ever claimed to want to turn Twitter into 4chan anarchy, then complains about following laws in other countries which is the only way to exist there at all. AFTER Musk already clarified the desire to want to allow all legal speech a while ago.

These "journalists" should write a blank article that headlines "I think Musk is a poopy head" about once a week and save everyone some time.

+1

Journalism is absolute trash these days. There are so many interesting things and actual corporate corruptions going on, but hey who cares about reality, because if you make up a story and you put Musk into the title, we'll get clicks...

Either that or part of the FUD campaign that Democrats, and combustion car companies are running. They've realised Tesla will be the dominant car manufacturer soon, and they know they can't compete fairly. You'd think that would be a better story...

Another lame Tesla hit piece. The media is pathetic looking for and creating drama where there is none.

If you ignore the big text that says keep your hands on the wheel and pay attention, then you are too stupid to live.

Over a 5 year period averaging a total of 100,000 miles the lack of the service and fuel costs make it the same total price as a much cheaper combustion vehicle. So while you pay 25% more up front, you get it all back. But during those 5 years you're driving a much nicer car.

OK, now do it over ten years including the battery replacement that will be necessary, the initial investment in infrastructure to charge this thing at your house and the added kwH costs in your home utility bill. This is where your "savings" begin to bottom out. Nobody with any financial common sense replaces their vehicle every five years.

I explained that poorly, it's in a price range and category where people lease cars for 3 to 5 years because it's part of their salary package or business expense. For a lot of people they won't be shopping in that price range, and for them value is a Kia Rio. But when they're looking at model 3's fossil fuel competitors, it's a far better value proposition in just about every way.

The current battery is good for at least 300,000 miles, the new one just about to come out will go a million miles. Unfortunately for electric cars highway cruising is worse than city driving for them, unlike gas cars, so it's buying used "highway miles" for an electric car is somethign to stay away from, better off buying the low miles city car.

I would also expect the price of batteries to fall over the next 10 years, as well as improve too. It may not be long until you can keep a car for life, which is an interesting idea.

I don't think Tesla are worried about stocks, they're now able to pump out a million vehicles a year worldwide, more once Berlin opens any day now, and they still have waiting lists. Demand is insane, and will only grow once Cybertruck is in production.

It's no surprise, the basic model 3 is great value. Over a 5 year period averaging a total of 100,000 miles the lack of the service and fuel costs make it the same total price as a much cheaper combustion vehicle. So while you pay 25% more up front, you get it all back. But during those 5 years you're driving a much nicer car.

Until some kind of breakthrough in quantum physics happens to allow for virtually no input lag, game streaming is never going to work for anything other than turn based games, maybe RTS.

The issue with ads is that they encourage quantity and clicks vs quality content.

Hence the mess of the outrage media we're in today.

Maybe we can finally remove this pronoun and cancel culture nonsense that twitter gave birth to.

Could you explain how an Elon Musk twitter buyout does anything with regards to those "issues?" He claims he wants to have a free speech platform, etc. so I imagine people will continue to use whatever pronouns they like on the service, and use the service to "cancel" people who do unpopular things.

They are free to use pronouns, but I want to be free not to have to participate in someone else's delusions and denial of reality.
