Yes, that’s a garbage headline.

I’m in Canada and I got my joycons fixed under warranty, free. They’ve been just fine since then.
There’s also numerous DIY fix kits available, for those that want to roll their own: https://www.amazon.ca/Joystick-Replacement-Controller-Screwdriver-Thumbstick/dp/B0882SJ9H3/
And the iPhone and dozens of Android phones give you those options. If you don’t like the lights I’d bet there’s a way to disable them altogether in the settings as well.
I got my first job so I could buy the original. Looooooved it, and I’ve already pre-ordered this one.

Have you seen the SpaceX crash data?

Looks like CGI to me

They’re still people, doing people things instead of CGI trying to do people things.

The real trick is going to be realistic animations because humans are VERY good at interpreting facial expressions, even at the subconscious level.
Yep – most complex systems built to make a profit are going to have issues. Expect it. The differentiator, I think, is how the company deals with them both from a consumer and product improvement perspective.
Well, I replied to your comment. So that in itself makes my comment related to yours.
Next I go on to discuss the pros of lackluster acceleration when it results in higher efficiency and range. Which I believe is related to your assertion that it "crawls" – which I agree with, BTW. While your comment may have been derogatory in nature, you opened the door to that discussion. Sure, it may "crawl" to 60, but it’ll get you further on a charge because of it.
Then I go off and make a different point about the high cost of the vehicle and I ponder who would spend a quarter of a million dollars on this….
Then, you responded to my comment, confirming that easy acceleration results in higher efficiency and range. And finally, by stating that my comment has no relation to your previous comment, you yourself provide an external relationship between the two comments.
So, I think we can safely say that you said something, I said something, and that this car is waaay too expensive.

But we’ve already heard about the numerous quality issues on Tesla vehicles. That’s old news now, not that it’s ceased to be a problem. Ford, GM, Dodge…they all have problems. Ford is just lucky this time it’s a software fix, which I would imagine is at least a little less expensive to deal with.

What is it missing? Why is the other one better?

All the better!

I guess it depends on what you’re looking for in an electric vehicle. Acceleration is nice, but if taking longer to get to 60 means longer range and greater efficiency, you have a decision to make.
That being said, this thing is so very expensive. I wonder who’s in the marking for something like this.

I hope there’s a video game spin-off.
