How Tesla can Solve Idle Fees

When you park at a Super Charger, you can leave your car to charge while you go grab a bite or do some shopping. At some point though, your car will finish charging. After that, you are taking up a parking spot with your car plugged in. This is where “Idle Fees” kick in. If […]


Cambridge Analytica

I recently reviewed the video The Great Hack from Netflix. Upon looking to cite the link above as a source, I stumbled upon a top Google result (currently second only to the Netflix trailer page itself) called What Netflix’s ‘Great Hack’ Gets Wrong About Cambridge Analytica and subtitled: The British consulting firm didn’t steal the […]


Tesla Next Batch Algorithm

//If you are reading this, I suggest you skip it. You have been warned. At some point, Tesla will face the decision: [which car to make next?] Hardware specifics that exist tangibly including paint colour, # motors, performance, battery size, r/l hand drive etc. need to be built in batches. Tesla will want to minimize […]


Bose Quiet Comfort 15 Headphone Review

I don’t do many product reviews, but I thought I would do one for this set of headphones I have been using for a couple years. Spend some hundreds of dollars. Sound quality has been basically subjectively perfect. It is how I expect things to sound now. Since headphones are so close to your ears, […]


Hater’s gonna hate

This article from The Drive does well to draw parallels from industry envy and how leaders suffer from envy in the industries they disrupt. He points out that he loves his car and Tesla is way ahead. He points fingers at all other car dealers and accuses them of not stepping it up. And points […]


Why is growth the most important metric?

Sentry Mode 2.0 (or 3.0?)

On Aug 10 2018, I originally wrote about a Tesla intrusion detection system. It wasn’t spot on, but it basically foresaw Tesla using cameras to detect intrusion. As of a few weeks ago Sentry Mode has been updated to stay on and allow you to input more settings such as the ability to configure when […]


Tornado Gun

It’s been a pretty crazy red wine night. So let’s see how this blog turns out. My idea is a Tornado Neutraliser. Based on research from NOAA let’s assume we can compute with cameras tornado physics real-time. That is, we can point a camera and detect different physical points of velocities from atmospheric movement at […]


Internet Everywhere

In Canada, it is hard to cover all the ground. Many of my favourite spots have poor connections. Places I could never live because I couldn’t work. Places I can’t stay long because I need to get back to an internet connection. And for my spotty internet connections I pay for cell phone and home […]
