    A few minutes in, of course the Elon Musk story will be last and watching 60 Minutes is equivalent to listening to fingernails down a blackboard

    I liked the article. He really is an amazing man.

    he reminds me of Zaphod Beeblebrox... Amazingly Amazing!

    Which is why I just set the PVR to record all free to air TV - with a 30 sec jump function to avoid ads and the ability to automatically record a series I never watch live TV.

    For a ~ten minute grab I thought it was pretty good. Didn't push anything that the detractors usually focus on, it was all rather positive. For those not aware of the Tesla, (as there is no advertising) they talked about some of its strengths, that should get the petrol heads taking notice.

    As well it should. We do have infinite improbability drive ourselves, after all.

    In the US 60 Minutes did a piece on Elon in March 2013. See 60 Minutes Video - So many children dream of fast cars and rocket ships, but few actually grow up to build them -- and change the world in the process - CBS.com
    Was the Australian 60 Minutes piece different than that 2013 piece?
    --- UPDATE --- I have now watched the Austrlian 60 Minutes show and see that it is a new piece on Musk. I didn't learn anything new from the piece but it is good to see Tesla getting more exposure Down Under!

    Funny there was no mention of the hyperloop. A major miss by 60 minutes. Fancy leaving out an entire area of exactly what the show was talking about regarding Elon Musk. what a fail!
