Did Dyson strike a deal with Tesla not to make EVs?

This article is pure speculation. If I were Dyson, and I were looking at the big business picture, I would recognise my dependency on Li-ion batteries. The cost of my batteries heavily impacts the cost of my vacuum devices to my customers and my margins as well. Having somebody working towards getting the costs of […]


Bad Defaults

It happens to the best of us. In development, everything has to land somewhere. There has to be default behavior where a user experience can be optimized. One example of default behavior is Google search results. The result is that you get the exact pages you want on the first page of Google’s results. I […]

Tesla will want to minimize […]


Starlink could bridge Tesla Camera + AR/VR to Make Driving 30 cars from home a Reality

Tesla has made and kept many promises. Some they have not kept may be because puzzle pieces were missing. With the addition of Starlink satellites, high bandwidth becomes very achievable especially when they have no load on the system. You have a brand new high capacity network with no user traffic. If Starlink is going […]


Can Tesla make the best insurance program?

I expect I paid at least $100/month to be insured since I was 16 and that ends up totalling $27,600. I gave $27,600 in exchange for some pink slips mailed to me each year. I expect that cost ended up being about $30. No other company has charged me so much and given me so […]
