You can see everything at:  www.EVThing.me I have restored cars and built hotrods most of my life.  I am also both an electrical and Mechannical engineer...
Lets look at the Reality vs you opinion.... Lets have a realist look at how it really works out.  Lets assume that a person makes 5 trips a year that is longer than the 250 mile ranger of the Model S. ICE:  Most people fill up about 4 times a month.  It realistically takes 10-15 minutes of your day to get to the station, fill up, pay and be on your way.  To be fair, lets use 10 minutes.  So that is 4 stops * 12 months * 10 minutes / 60Min/hr =  8hr of your life lost.  You...
As a Tesla Model S owner and the owner of another converted BEV (1974 VW Thing),  I can say with 100% certainty, you have NO IDEA what you are talking about...!!! The batteries that Tesla is using in the Model S have a life expectancy of approximately 2000 deep cycles.  That is assuming that you abuse the cells and charge them to 100% all of the time.  So, 2000 x 260 miles = 520,000 miles.  Give that there is exactly 5 moving parts in the entire electric drive train and...
 I own two EV's and know that most of your posts is simply wrong.  I have a Tesla Model S and a 1974 V thing that I converted to battery electric drive. Tesla produced 35,000 cars last year and are on target for 50,000 this year and 500,000 for 2020.... They average about 28% margin on the cars they produce right now. Batteries are easy to recycle so not worries there.  In fact Tesla is building a recycling stream into it's new 5 billion dollar battery factory it is...
8.0 and 8.2 have worked fine with my Blue Trip adapter in my Electric VW Thing, 2011 Ford F150 (Sync) and in my Tesla Model S....
  I suspect that there is a pent up demand for this phone right now and the supply was limited.  Very few people reported that they got a 9/18 delivery date on the Plus.   Once the initial demand is covered, I think it will work down to a 10:1 ratio.  The main reason is that women do not typically like a phone this big and they are 1/2 the market...
I personally think that the iPhone 6 will outsell the iPhone 6 Plus about 10:1.  (It is really big) However, I do think that the main intention of the iPhone 6 Plus is to win back people who switched to Android to get a bigger screen and of course people who prefer Phablets....   One of my favorite phones in the past was a Galaxy Nexus from a pure size point of view with a 4.6" display.  It fit in my pockets easily with a fairly bulky rubber case and could be single hand...
I gave my 10" iPad to the wife as it was too big to carry around with me for few times I needed it because I could not see the little iPhone 5s screen so the mini kind of filled the gap.  I think that the iPhone 6+ will cover all mobile needs.  I use blue tooth in the car and the speaker when at my desk or a bluetooth ear piece. I suppose the Plus could be a mistake, but I doubt it...  I made a full size mockup (with extra space for the leather cover) and put in 30...
 I am a 50 year old engineer who ruined his eyes staring at blueprints and computer screen all of his life... I can see the little screen in the 5s if I take my progressive glasses off or bifocal contacts out.  If I have the contacts in I have to put on a 2x reader to read some of the little text... I do find the 5.5" a little bit too big, and the iPhone 6 would probably be ok, but just desperately want that bigger screen.  This one device should be able to replace both my...
And yet that is how I always hold it....  And it does not fall...   By the way I have had larger phones from Samsung in the past they work just fine for me...   AND I CAN SEE THE TEXT which is a huge benefit...
