It’s not that the US doesn’t have what it takes. It’s the fact of why spend money on something no one wants to ride?
Trains are incredibly expensive. Short lines cost billions.
They’re not very flexible in terms of routes.
They ruin land and property values all around them.
They’re slow. The fastest trains in the world don’t even come close to the cruising speed of your typical airliner.
Tickets aren’t cheap. In Europe tickets for HSR trips cost about the same as the same trip in a plane.
People want trains because they think their cool not because they’re practical.
A law being written improperly isn’t Apple’s problem. Taking advantage of them is being smart not greedy. That 6 billion they pay in taxes more than covers the resources they utilize from society.
Capitalism or regulation wasn’t mentioned once in his post.
Talk about a straw man.
You may not need it, but it certainly isn’t bad to have.

That assumes that file sizes magically increase due to faster loading. I’ll give you a clue they don’t.
Nor does media play any quicker.
In other words a movie that lacks substance, but will get rave reviews by critics for being “sophisticated in a way the audience doesn’t understand.”

So heres how I imagine the plot line.
2. Floating in space for most of movie
3. Either eventually comes crashing down to earth or some unrealistic solution crafted within a few days.
Essentially Open Water in space.

not cable companies*
It’s actually networks resisting the modernization of technology not networks.
Networks control the prices of content they own. Cable companies simply act as a delivery service.
His solution is great until you realize that someone still has to pay to generate that electricity.
9 times out of 10 one standard wins and fragmentation isn’t an issue.

Considering signed artists make hell of a lot more than unsigned ones I have to imagine that they aren’t getting shafted too much.
Because Verizon and ATT made nothing from iPhones.
Good riddance. This was ridiculous legislation that only appealed to luddites.
What about his comment was sexist?

Nothing says hacker like a tacky gaming keyboard.
His point is that there is more to a movie than simply filtering out poor selling elements.
Which is exactly the point.
Well you know wrong.
The only people who have limited access to connections tend to live in the middle of nowhere.
20,000 is small fish in terms of sales.
Toyota will sell 30,000 Camry’s in a single month.
Ford sells 55,000 F150’s in a single month.
GM sells 15 – 25k Malibu’s a month.
So yes to put into perspective. No one is buying. Tesla sales numbers aren’t even a blip on the radar.
Which assumes no one ever leaves that range.
No i’m not driving 100 miles every day but I may do it 10 – 30 times a year. That’s a lot to spend on rentals.
Buying a car that requires not only spending more than they would on a typical car, but also having to use rentals for anything further than a set range is unappealing. Especially in a country the size of Europe.

You wanna know what killed the electric car? Viability.
A car with a limited range and no charging infrastructure just wasn’t going to sell in the era of <$1/g gas.
Hell they don’t even sell now.

Well you have to balance that with the fact that the doctor has a vested financial interest in you coming back.
Even if there isn’t a clear diagnosis there should be at least a treatment plan for the symptoms. Whether it be pain relievers, anti-histamines for hives, etc, etc.
There is enough competition in the insurance field to prevent this from becoming a problem, but for now it helps keep costs under control, and it isn’t done without internal medical consultation on the reasonable treatment for a certain issue.
It isn’t simply some bean counter simply deciding what’s too expensive and what isn’t.
Is that such a unreasonable thing to do?
Doctors will milk insurance companies by running a bunch of unnecessary procedures. This is a cost saving measure.
Medicare and Medicaid do the same exact thing.

Bleh my post came out badly.
His logic seems to follow that waves are different than people in killing because they don’t get angry.
Which implied at least in the way that I read it that people with guns are more driven to kill when they’re angry.
It was a bad post all around. I’m on your side.
Because most people with guns start getting homicidal when they’re angry?
Certainly, but electrics in their current forms are also much less versatile than a normal gasoline vehicle.
So electrics have to go above and beyond to make up for their short comings. Especially if you’re selling to a moderate market that isn’t buying purely to save the planet.
This is why Tesla is doing well because not only do they offer the best in electric technology they do it while providing an experience akin to what you would find in a Cadillac or BMW. Albeit at a bit more expensive price point.
Off of similar cases.
Treating someone isn’t like popping open the hood of a car and replacing an O2 sensor. Treatments can vary greatly from person to person and some illnesses are very similar to others while not being completely the same.
Good doctors don’t rely exclusively on a book. If they did there would be no point in going to school for 10 years.
