I have to disagree mostly because even in the luxury space (or almost any automotive space) we DONT hear about these kind of things until after there have been some incidents citing the issue. Normally car companies don’t disclose until NHTSA reports are out or about to come out and even then some companies fight the conclusion.
They are going TO the customer after contacting them directly and dropping off a loaner as they pick up and take back the recalled vehicle for a quick fix. Normally you don’t see this outside of super luxury brands with vehicles costing $100K or over (Like higher end Roll’s Royce, Porsch, Maserati, Bentley). The rest of the industry, even the normal luxury auto brands (which includes $60k vehicles like the S) normally send you a postcard in the mail, pin a recall note on your VIN# if you come in for service, and have you come into a repair center more convenient for them.
This should be common practice yes, but the point is its not and its good to se Tesla trying to raise the bar at every opportunity.

Its good to see the Chromebook steadily improving and getting a bit more acceptance. Usable web apps are slowly becoming a norm as the web technologies start to catch up with offline OS APIs we are already at a point where most people don’t need much more then a web browser with a few minor extras. Now if Google would bother keeping up the offline versions of their products because Offline GMail is YEARS behind.
Apple’s defense basically comes down to one of three points:
1) This case is unfair from the beginning.
2) We didn’t do what we said we did.
3) It is justifiable to break anti-trust law to prevent a third party from breaking anti-trust law.
One is strange because the judge has gone out of the way to be transparent and make the trial as streamlined as possible… with both parties agreeing before hand. Two is just hilarious because Jobs & Co publicly made statements to the fact this is what they were doing. Three is just morally bankrupt, but seems all Apple’s lawyers have left because when you tend to agree to things before hand you tend to wave your right to object.

Sorry its calle Gif, if you wanted it to be called otherwise you should have tried to do something more then a single slide durring the 90s when it became popular instead of trying to switch it back to your pronunciation 20 years latter. :p
How? It would end up raising taxes more on the lower class, students, and people working retail then on the wealthy taking every single tax loophole added to the code for them over the last several decades.
Flat taxes are an illusion that raises taxes on the poor and re-enforces the abnormally low effective tax rate on the rich. Remember the greatest US economic growth, creation of the middle class, and international power happened under tax rates as high as 90%. Taxes rates, when done right, have no real effect on economic power of the country or growth.
