Why is growth the most important metric?

My name is Jeff. I am going to buy a lemonade stand. This lemonade stand costs me $100. But for every $80 I spend on labour/ingredients expenses, I make $100. My first year, I only ran the one stand. I spend $100 on the stand and $80 on expenses. So I ended up -$80. Instead […]


Apple was going to buy Tesla in 2013 for $240

Apple valued TSLA at $240/share in 2013.Shorts will try to negative spin this.  But you cannot argue numbers.   In 2013, Tesla had made less than 35K cars. So in 5 years (2008 to 2013) they made 35K cars.  That is 7K cars per year.  Now they make 7K cars/week.  With 52 weeks in the year, […]

Playing Netflix in a Model 3

A hacker did it It is cool. I personally don’t see it worth time to focus on developing something Tesla has committed to giving but… it is cool.

UThinking about getting a Hybrid? It might seem like a good idea if you talk to a Hybrid owner. They may even save upwards of 90% on gas. The problem with hybrids is the sheer number of parts. To keep them cost competitive you need literally the cheapest of both worlds. As such, any company […]


Hey Google, want to know why I’m not converting on your YouTube Premium?

I paid for cable. It cost me $70/mo to sit through tonnes of commercials. Wife pays like $10/mo for Netflix. No commercials at all and tonnes of content. It is a weird gap between commercials and not commercials. The Netflix membership really has nothing to do with why I am not converting. Just thought it […]
