    The scary part here is it seems this takes a lot of time per car, otherwise what would be the point of the table. I've done full reinstall of 30 PC's with about a 3GB image and that takes what an hour per PC. How much code is there on there, that needs to be updated and HOW long does it take??

    Re growth v short-term profits

    $TSLA is up 8300% since the IPO a little more than 10 years ago — the best performing large stock of the decade.

    Seems like smart shareholders should recognize that optimizing for growth instead of short-term profits not only serves the mission but is in their financial best interest.

    Faster growth means costs fall faster and ICE sales are conquered faster while making it that much harder for potential competitors to try to catch up.

    Tesla growing at ludicrous speed maximizes benefits to both the planet and long-term investors.

    7 hours. Just think what a dealer would charge for 7 hours.

    EDIT: must be a RS232 serial connection.

    I’m surprised Elon said such a low reservation count. I thought we were closer to 750k. Or maybe since they are only planning on selling in N/A, the ~200k is for north America only.

    Could be an error By the author. The article also says the “glass is billed as bulletproof” which it was not. Only the body. The glass is stronger than regular automotive glass but never said the glass was bulletproof to my knowledge.

    Already undergoing trials by the US Air Force, last year:

    SpaceX's Starlink will be tested during a live-fire U.S. Air Force exercise

    "The Air Force program known as Global Lightening tested Starlink internet last year. Starlink terminals were fixed to the cockpit of a C-12J Huron twin-engine turboprop military airplane, they beamed encrypted internet from space. Program officials said the tests have demonstrated significantly higher Internet connection and data-transfer rates than what Air Force aircraft can currently receive. The Starlink broadband network demonstrated high-speed internet connectivity of 610 megabits per-second, equivalent to a gigabyte every ~13 seconds.

    "That provides them with faster access to live video, weather, and other data while in flight combat mode. Some of the data could involve signal from sensors to detect threats. In December, the Air Force tested Starlink, and the exercise was a success, with SpaceX Starlink satellites used to link to a Lockheed Martin (LMT) AC-130 gunship aircraft."​

    Where is s&p and moody's? Does this warrant at least several notches of downgrade?

    I was wondering, without ota how are these companies validating their software for safety?. Tesla always start with a small fleet and then a bug fix software usually comes out a few days later. Isn't it kind of dangerous without this step?

    Yeah hard not to watch Jack's video (and the one he references, linked below) and not be super bullish.

    Elon upsetting Egypt now :D

    Egypt tells Musk pyramids were not built by aliens

    Egypt tells Elon Musk its pyramids were not built by aliens

    Egypt has invited billionaire Elon Musk to visit the country and see for himself that its famous pyramids were not built by aliens.

    The SpaceX boss had tweeted what appeared to be support for conspiracy theorists who say aliens were involved in the colossal construction effort.

    But Egypt's international co-operation minister does not want them taking any of the credit.

    We all should see how this will likely play out now.... Elon tours of a few pyramids & swiftly figures out the reboot sequence, reactivating the long-dormant worldwide grid. Then the builders return....

    I sold my AAPL last week (before the hike.....) and put it all in TSLA (before the drop...). The smart people told me not to time the market.

    Also, think about the tax implications. When you sell (not when you take money out) is when you realize your short & long-term gains and tax is due!

    With FANG + AAPL+ MS being in top 10 of S&P index by weight, and all having breakout earnings, stocks at ATH, it would be a perfect time to sell some to buy TSLA and balance the index. cheers!!
