Well that's what happened in NC. I can't imagine that those 1,300 acres are already free of trees. Apple had environmental impact studies done and of course they say "no major loss", but obviously others say " no, there's protected marshland, wooded areas, wildlife etc. I love the idea of solar myself but when you look at the cost of implementation (including mining, manufacturing, shipping, direct environmental impact etc) I'm not so sure it's all that much better than...

How is 14% a high margin? And don't give me BS THAT 28% of a $200 iPod is less than 14% of a $50k car. Dollars to donuts. 28% of $50k worth of iPods is still more than 14% of $50k worth of 1 car.

If self driving cars aren't on the road yet how does one conduct a study? Sounds dubious at best.
Several major auto manufacturers (especially high end brands like Mercedes) are making it a top priority starting with the 2015-2016 models as a way to differentiate themselves. It's inevitable. And coming very soon.
