Re: Plug-in hybrid cars

I think Adrian's point is that the new law may push some of the 2022 Tesla sales into 2023 - when they might again become eligible for the tax credit.

Ah. That seems a bit unlikely, given Tesla's wait list. Some of their [more]

Re: Plug-in hybrid cars

Isn't this new tax credit just going to kill EV and PHEV sales for the remainder of 2022?


Pretty unlikely. Remember, the overwhelming majority of EV sales in the U.S. are Teslas. Teslas haven't been eligible for the tax [more]

Re: Al I have done a reversal on my NFT plans

Meanwhile thanks to you and Wendy for wishing me well in my endeavors.

No worries. Where are you going to mint your NFT's? I'd like to see your work.

Re: Al I have done a reversal on my NFT plans

I know I nodded in approval of your worries and concerns about NFTs and IPFS. I even thought I came up with some smoking guns, but the token on the chain would exist forever. The copies of the contract and animations would exist for centuries on [more]

Re: Plug-in hybrid cars

Because Wendy was looking at non-SUV cars. Bringing in SUVs is off topic per the OP.

Was she? I went back and looked at the OP, and there's nothing there that specifies what type of car she was talking about.

Regardless, [more]

Re: Plug-in hybrid cars

I think the Highlander is considered mid-size.

Really? I didn't know that. It's certainly a larger vehicle than most of the EV SUV's available in the U.S., and it's got a third row of seating (which again most [more]

Re: The Dawn Project vs. Tesla

It was true for boolean computing but image recognition, pattern matching, is what neural networks do for a living.

Of course. But they're still not nearly as competent at it as humans. It's a much harder problem for computers [more]

Re: Plug-in hybrid cars

Silly comparison. Why not compare it to a Tesla Model 3 ($47K) with fuel, maintenance and subsidies?

I imagine because the Model 3 isn't an SUV, and the Highlander is. They're very different vehicle types.

Re: The Dawn Project vs. Tesla

According to him the problem is the law has not caught up. There will be accidents and the law does not know who to blame or hold accountable.

Seems unlikely that's the reason. There's no issue with knowing who to blame or [more]
