Elon Musk on Twitter
"verbose" is....er....well, it's currently six more letters.
Love the minimalism.
I was going to say hypotheses on Elon's plans - but I think he just took the opportunity without a specific plan
Ideas for uses (prize for the first person suggesting the one they eventually use ;-)
He hinted earlier at "redefining the marketplace" so I wouldn't be surprised to see something there soon, perhaps related to CPO/Inventory listings.
It's all a joke people. It's going to be nothing. Or endless dad jokes.
You may be on to something. He said he just fixed it. Same old content as previously. When you view source, there's actually less than before so it's true, not nearly as verbose as previously!
If only as much effort would be placed on fixing AP2 EAP code...
The owners of:
may want to ping him and ask what his price is. I wonder if PayPal gave him x.com back for free?
Well, x.com was his online financial project before they merged with the PayPal team and eventually adopted that name.
He envisioned the product to provide a whole suite of online financial services above and beyond just simple payment xfers, and has expressed disappointment that nothing became of those more ambitious plans after eBay bought PayPal.
Perhaps he's thinking of ramping that back up?
You know... in his spare time.
Given that the full extent of that site currently is only the letter "x", that's probably not the amount of effort you want spent on AP2/EAP code.
I know. Given the pace of improvements and, at times, the lack of regression testing, it feels as if there was more effort put into building x.com.
Truth is stranger than fiction. Real exchange between EM and GoDaddy:
Kuddos to the GoDaddy social media team, they got great exposure this morning with a clever tweet.
I suspect the first two tweets at least (the "welcome" and offer of help) were sent by bots to all new site owners. But, yes, it's free publicity for GoDaddy no matter how you interpret the exchange.
Maybe this will be the future website of a telecommunication satellite network for earth, and maybe moon and mars.
Not a bad guess. He has also hinted that he has interest in creating his own streaming music service.
My hope is that they do this. It would hopefully provide better coverage for areas than current ATT (we live in a new development area with crappy ATT coverage).
PayPal has got to rank up there as one of his big all time disappointments. Especially in hindsight. Yeah, he walked away from it with $170M in his pocket (which he has since turned into at least $8B (edit, $17B) and rising), but PayPal, if it had been run properly after it had been sold to eBay, would be the Amazon of financial transactions by now, probably rivaling Amazon in market cap. The opportunity is probably lost now.
From a business perspective, maybe. But I mean, electric cars and rockets. I hope he has the context to see the difference in outcomes and impact.
Maybe he calculated that it would save money to buy it and use it for connection testing.
Or perhaps he wanted a quick and reliable way to get hotel/restaurant wifi portal acknowledgment pages without a security error.
Another possibility is that he got x.com because he wanted to diversify SpaceX' operations and TimeX.com was already taken.
