«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
Of course it did, they're running a business, not playing Candy Crush.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Went out for a drive in one the other day, it is a very impressive piece of engineering. From the moment you open the doors (push button, electric), to when you see the interior (how clean it is) you are looking at the future.
The reversing camera on the big ipad style central dash is of such high quality you can see everything clearly, and the over layed lines showing the direction the car will take a nice touch.
Then the performance. 0-100kmh in 4.7. And it is a wall of torque, not a build up, just seat slamming acceleration from the start.
Apparently they average about 200 miles on a refill, which isnt much worse than my ST with its 45 liter tank.
Of course it costs £75k, and for that kind of money you get a lot, but it is the car of the future. Instantly what you have is a cart horse. Outdated, form the last century. The Tesla is a 21st century car.
And that's my point, Tesla's like Apples are pretty much unnecessary for the average user, those [average] users that have them are just showing off.
Prius like win-10-PC's are the boring "supposed to be good for" something [environment/usability] but really aren't. win-10 is a proven productivity killer, prius lietime footprint are not environmentally friendly- 50 times the pollution created in the build, barely more fuel/emission efficient than a well tuned pure petrol car - and in fact less fuel/emission efficient than new generation diesels.
or in summary:
prius/win-10-pc = boring bullshit
tesla/macbook = expensive unnecessary bullshit.
