    Interesting Financial Times article:
    Financial Times | Error | Akamai Error

    And my favorite quote from the article: "A Tesla is, in a sense, not an electric vehicle. It is an expensive gadget that happens to be an electric vehicle"

    Cigarettes do not cause cancer, lead in fuel does not cause neurological problems, and bad ignition switches do not need to be replaced. Definitely time to dust off my copy of 1984 so as to be able to fully digest what I'm reading on the internets these days :wink:.

    Right, and an iPhone is arguably not a phone, because making calls is only a small percentage of what people do with it. However, you don't normally sit in your car to make phone calls or browse the web. You sit in it to drive it. And it's electric.
