Re: The real GM strategy for EVs

EVs with 150+ mile range priced under $40K are brand new. For most places, charging infrastructure is brand new.

Re: How relevant is METaR (for me)?

Many retirees (most, I would say) have at least 50% of their portfolio in bonds - as they have been advised to be for 50 years.

I would be shocked to find that this is true, or anywhere close to true. Most people probably don’t [more]

Re: The real GM strategy for EVs

Microsoft jumping on early produced some of the richest people in the world (e.g. Gates). The competitors faded away (most of them...when was the last time you saw CPM or Amiga DOS?).

Re: Will retail follow railroads’ path?

In 2014, the inflation-adjusted revenue that railroads earn per mile of track is 2.7 times what it was a century ago. More startling still, the so-called “ton miles” of freight carried on the nation’s railroads has tripled since 1960, even as the [more]

Re: Trump gives more access than Obama

You ignored Trump's tweets which remove the filter of the press between the President and the people.

So you prefer the system where the President can say anything he wants and nobody gets to question him on it? [more]

Re: point of use water heater
