    Integration with Google Home / Google Assistant - Now available for general use

    I'm trying to build a Google Assistant routine that (in part) prepares my car to leave in the morning by turning on climate control via EV Car. The problem is that just about 100% of the time, my first request to EV Car says that "EV Car is not responding right now". I assume this is because...

    Model 3 Handover Event -- July 28, 2017

    Hey, Flux! Wouldn't miss this for the world. Brings back memories of watching the Model S launch with you all.

    Yeah. That's not YouTube, that's something funky on Tesla's end.

    Oh thank God---they are using YouTube. Finally, something that can handle the load.

    I'm a software engineer too, and I was about to write this exact same response. This should be a non-issue. Even when there was only one camera system, such a layer of abstraction would have been necessary just for testing purposes. This is a minor inconvenience and something that we deal...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    These past few weeks remind me of the couple of weeks after the first Model S caught on fire, only...without the hit to the share price? Strange times. I'm just holding through this, Elon is fightin' mad---the way he was during the Broder event. If you recall, the New York Times reporter...

    Well, it is nice to go into an ER with depressed expectations for once.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Yeah. Been unwinding slowly. I'm very nearly down to my core position now (which is about half the number of LEAPs I held when we were trading around $140). Having a very good year, up 100-200% on just about everything TSLA. Would have made an absolute killing if I hadn't been unwinding it...

    I must have missed that. I don't spend much time here anymore, sorry if this has taken on a negative connotation in my absence. Personally, I wouldn't take any offense to being called an ameteur since that is true---I don't make a living trading stocks. I'm definitely an amateur. Again, I...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Yeah, I think maybe "Amateur" isn't the greatest word anymore as many pros do day trade, but too much history now, it isn't going to get renamed. I guess what it really means is small fish versus big fish. The big players trade later in the day.
  13. Citizen-T

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Sorry, I don't understand. People were asking about the price action, I was reminding the group that big players don't trade in the first hour of the day. If Fidelity was going to buy up a billion shares they wouldn't be doing it right now. This phenomenon is commonly known as the "Amateur...

    If ever there was going to be a Tsunami of Hurt 2.0---it should begin today. Tesla will need to follow this with reporting great Q1 delivery numbers then Q1 earnings. If they can nail the trifecta, we'll once again get to see the streets run red with the losses of the shorts. Here's hoping.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    We need to keep in mind how slow the market is to pick up on Tesla news. Demand issue may be put to rest for us, but we are at the very front-end of the information bell curve when it comes to Tesla. Model 3 news hasn't even made it to MarketWatch's front page last I looked. I bet that most...

    Just got back home after reserving. Took about 2 hours to get through the line. Tesla employees said they were expecting about 20-30 people to line up before open, at least 10x is what they actually got. Also, neighbors called the police on them because Tesla customers were taking up all the...

    I was wrong about Raleigh. Didn't realize the line wrapped around the whole building. Probably closer to 300.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    I'm selling. I'm almost completely out of the calls I added during the first month or so of the year. Will soon be back to just my core position.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Hey. I realized today that I often drop in to say when I'm buying but often don't let the group know when I'm taking profits. Today I'm unwinding a lot of the calls that I accumulated starting with this post and all the way down to the lows shortly after. It's been a very good year so far for...

    Hey guys. Been away for a while. I heard there was a sale so came back to load up. A few words before I step back into the shadows, I get that people are upset about the X ramp; but, the assumption that a simpler design would have allowed for us to ramp production 2 years earlier ignores the...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Well, I think the reason has little to do with not wanting to miss self imposed deadlines and everything to do with needing the car to be ready when the gigafactory is ready. Idle gigafactory would be terrible for the business. There was no such forcing function on Model X.

    What he said
  25. Citizen-T

    85 y/o man died in his Tesla after he drove into a pool.

    Just saw a story of someone mistakenly accelerating into a book store here in Raleigh. Same story, meant to hit the break. Not a Tesla. So, I think this happens often enough, it just stays local news usually. The fact that it's a Tesla grabs the attention of these forums.

    For those wondering about the pause at $230. The Bulls and Bears are just playing tug over the 200-day. Looks like the bears are starting to tire though; they are running out of ammunition, if you don't mind me mixing metaphors.

    I missed that the OP said "to the public". You are right, that's debatable. Though, Google didn't do any kind of traditional advertising to its actual customers either. There weren't commercials on CNBC about how you should serve your ads for your business through Google. End tangent.

    Q3 2015 Report & Conference Call

    I think Jonas was just trying to take advantage of Elon's terrible self control when it comes to new product announcements. True, that's more of a button that a reporter should be pushing, but I don't think he was out of line. I think Elon's people need to step in sooner though.
  31. Citizen-T

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2015

    I wonder if these rumors could be related to the long-speculated on Elon Musk holding company. The values of Tesla, SolarCity, and Space X are all depressed right now. If he's ever going to do it, now might be the time.

    NC - any interest in Triangle Tesla club?

    I know a couple of owners. I'm not an owner (yet) but would be interested. I suggest organizing through meetup.com so I can easily point non-TMC members to the group.

    Q3 2015 Report & Conference Call

    Now that autopilot has been delivered they should be able to recognize a bunch of revenue that they have had to hold back. I think?
  34. Citizen-T

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2015

    The first Model S deliveries happened over the summer though, if I remember correctly. Model X started at the end of September. So relatively speaking, i think it is the same.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2015

    This is a lot like the Model S launch. I'm not saying that is a good thing. I was hoping that this launch would go better given their experience, but I guess they are still learning. But really, if you look back at what happened with the Model S, they delivered a handful of cars at the launch...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2015

    There seems to be an awful lot of people here who have not built a successful car company (I assume) that from the comfort of their armchair would presume to tell Tesla what they are doing wrong. At some point you just got to let the winners do what they do and just decide how much money you...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2015

    You misunderstood. I think they did get the keys to their cars. I just don't think that their cars were the ones that picked them up on stage. I think their cars were out in the parking lot.
  38. Citizen-T

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2015

    Nobody said those were their cars. They just got the keys to their cars and were chauffeured off the stage by the test drive cars.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2015

    I read at least one article last night that said that there would be a roof rack but that obviously it would prevent the FW doors from opening. Presumably that just means you have to get in and out of the front doors.

    Modes X details On the website at 2300 hrs PST

    I bet that autopilot is not mentioned for accounting reasons. I know that with the P85D they had to put aside some portion of each sale because they had not yet delivered autopilot. There was discussion about this on the last conference call. There must be some law that if you sell a car...

    Model X Mule Sightings

    I was just making fun. There's been a history on this thread of people posting pictures and then someone claiming that the car pictured wasn't technically a mule. Since the cars shown tonight are obviously not going to be mules, I thought it'd be appropriate to have one last round of that...

    Model X Mule Sightings

    I really hope that someone posts photos of MX from the event tonight here and we can all have one last argument about the definition of a Mule before this thread dies.

    Model X reveal impact on TSLA

    Again this board is falling into the trap of thinking that product news (folding seats) is going to move the stock. How many D announcements do we have to go through before we learn that the stock makes sustained moves on financial news---not product news?

    Most momentum stocks are up big today. I think the CR report helped, but at least 4-5% of this move is just following the market.
