Not really sure what the point of this is - rehash of various posts from all over...
why did this need a new thread? And not even a link?
Pretty good article.
Sigh. Henry Blodget.
We should just get rid of cell phones. If I don't charge it up all the way or plug it in overnight, it ends up just dying the next day. If I travel, I have to find someplace to plug it in. They are just too complicated!
Funny thing is everyone I have talked to about the car... even a labor on the construction sight, understands that like a cell phone you "simply" plug it in every night. I don't get the reviews making that sound difficult.
They all also understand that when the car says it has 31 miles that means it can not be drive OVER 31 miles. I think a 5 year old would get that. The adults understand <31 rated range is what is meant.
They also understand, after asking me, when the car is looking like it will be a few miles short of my destination I can pull over at any gas station (in an emergency) and there is a 99% chance that for cash money they will let me plug in and charge. It might be inconvenient for me but I am not stuck on the side of the road. It's not like the car suddenly goes from 20 rated miles to zero then shuts down.
Years ago a friend, a sitting judge, was assailed in print by a reporter. The article misstated and distorted events, and excoriated the judge for strong action he took against family members of a convicted felon who tried to help him escape during a hearing in court. I asked my friend when his letter to the editor, setting the record straight, would appear. He said, "It won't. When you start a p_____g contest, you don't choose a skunk for an opponent." The New York Times stink continues to spread.
Guess the NYT hasn't run out of ink yet. I suppose those who believe all press is good press are happy. Waiting for EM's tweet...
But it does seem they have run out of "all the news that's fit to pring."
