It’s amazing, but would like to have CarPlay on it. If Rivian is a better car then buy it, but to me it’s idiotic to make (or cancel) a car purchase because of any person at the company.
To me it’s similar to that person that cuts me off in traffic while driving a vehicle that has their company name on it. I’ll remember that Chris’ Custom Closets guy cut me off and when it’s time to redo my closet I won’t be calling them.
It wouldn’t surprise me in the least to hear that Musk said something in an interview or on Twitter that really annoyed a potential customer and then that potential customer decided to go with another brand.I drove 430 miles yesterday afternoon to night in the Model Y. It took about 8.5 hours with all charging and bathroom stops, averaging about 74mph while on the road. What other electric vehicle can you do that with today (or likely even in 2 years)? The Lucid Air certainly can’t do that on one charge at interstate highway speeds.
- Also not clear is why Twitter didn't retain the blue checkmark for verified accounts, and implement a different color or shape for the paid subscriptions.
Then he thought common folks would pay to be verified, but not that many common people are interested enough to have their account verified: no one besides friends and family and business acquaintances would care, and they already know! Not to mention that a purchased Blue Tick diminishes the value of the real, coveted, Blue Tick. But if he had left the Blue Tick as is, and just introduced a new, say, green tick that is available for purchase, no one would buy that green tick - would you?
Apple TV+ content is really good, some shows I do not like, but none are bad shows.
But I hope that the general population knows that rightfully, Netflix should have won the first Best Picture Oscar, not only because Roma is infinitely better than The Green Book, but also better than Coda (nothing against Coda, but Roma is a true masterpiece). They were probably just too early - the Academy wasn't ready. Well, looking at their current portfolio, no risk of them winning anything anytime soon.....
