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 […]


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 […]


Why does Tesla needs advertising? To get the fucking media to lay off.

If you are a media source, how are you funded? Advertisers. If Tesla doesn’t feel obliged to provide those media companies money, then why should they show loyalty to Tesla? Other car companies give advertising money. These companies can leverage the threat of removing these ad dollars. And if the ad dollars go away, with […]


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

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 […]


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 […]


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 […]

Maxwell Technologies Acquisition

This is a great video to watch: Maxwell Could Be Worth BILLIONS To Tesla The other companies do not have value for Maxwell. Tesla acquiring it without competition means that for other companies, this acquisition would have been a liability for the near-term or even long-term. It sets a precedence. Tesla might be too far […]
