Everyone who's telling you that Tesla is influencing the rest of the auto industry is completely wrong (TSLA)

Tesla is routinely considered to be influencing the traditional auto industry. Tesla has exerted some influence, but it has been relatively modest in the grand scheme of things. Auto executives are too busy dealing with real business problems to worry about Tesla — and if Tesla did become truly influential, the traditional industry could quickly develop and sell millions of electric vehicles. If you follow Tesla and the company's endless flurry of news, non-news, rumor, innuendo, and Twitteri...

A Harvard professor has a tip for entrepreneurs looking for the next big thing: Check out the electric-car market in China

In China, the electric-car market is "booming." That's according to Clayton Christensen, a Harvard Business School professor and an author of "The Prosperity Paradox." Christensen said electric cars in China are examples of "market-creating innovations," in that they make a product affordable and accessible to a broader swath of the population. In his new book, "The Prosperity Paradox," coauthored with Efosa Ojomo and Karen Dillon, Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen provide...

I went to the biggest tech show in the world after not going for the past 7 years — and I was surprised by how little had changed

I went to CES, the biggest tech show in the world, for the first time since 2012. To be honest, not much has changed since the last time I went seven years ago. LAS VEGAS — Thousands of people flock to Nevada in the first weeks of January for the biggest annual tech show in the world — and this year, I was one of them. I hadn't been back to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) — or Las Vegas, for that matter — since 2012, which was the last time I had been sent on assignment to cover the tech ...

Volkswagen Considering a Rough-and-tumble Electric

The sky’s apparently the limit when it comes to the variety of vehicles that might emerge from Volkswagen’s dedicated MEB electric architecture. While the automaker’s looming EV onslaught already contains a hatchback, crossover, microbus, panel van, and possible luxury sedan, VW feels something’s missing: a tough, off-road ute. One VW exec is pushing hard to […] The post Volkswagen Considering a Rough-and-tumble Electric appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Was 2018 as Good a Year for Electric Vehicles as They Say?

Teslas galore. But at the Tesla factory, not on the streets of most cities. Supporters of battery electric vehicles (EV and/or BEV) are rapturous about the 81% increase in electric vehicles sold in 2018 compared to 2017.  This table shows the breakdown, with a total of 361,307 vehicles sold in the US in 2018, compared to 199,826 sold in 2017. We should add a disclaimer.  We love electric-powered vehicles.  We’d like nothing more than to get a fully loaded Tesla, and, failing that, just about an...

Chargers prepare for Ravens with playoff experience a mixed bag

Virgil Green had already been to a Super Bowl. He had nine games of postseason experience with three starts, but there Green was, short of breath, two days before Super Bowl 50. The tight end, who can pass off as a bodybuilder, was a nervous wreck. Green, a member of the Denver Broncos at the time, couldn’t control his thoughts, as adrenaline rushed through his 6-foot-5, 255-pound body. He was ambushed by anxiety. “I had a lot of anxiety and it wasn’t like I was scared,” Green said. “You can jus...

What could make APC Live, MPC cool: Akai’s new software direction

Akai tipped their hand late last year that they were moving more toward live performance. With APC Live hardware leaked and in the wild, maybe it’s time to take another look. MPC software improvements might interest you with or without new hardware. MPC 2.3 software dropped mid-November. We missed talking about it at the time. But now that we’re (speculating, unofficially) that Akai is releasing new hardware based around the APC at some point in some form, it puts this update in a new light. B...

Trump has taken a hatchet to federal rules, but a number of industries are now pleading to be regulated

President Trump has taken a hatchet to federal rules that he says kill jobs, cost money and give Washington bureaucrats too much power. While this may be music to some large industries' ears, there are a number of sectors that are pleading with the feds to impose new rules. Regulation is a dirty word in most Republican administrations, and President Trump has taken a hatchet to federal rules that he says kill jobs, cost money and give Washington bureaucrats too much power.

Did 2018 usher in a creeping tech dystopia?

By Matt O’Brien, The Associated Press We may remember 2018 as the year when technology’s dystopian potential became clear, from Facebook’s role enabling the harvesting of our personal data for election interference to a seemingly unending series of revelations about the dark side of Silicon Valley’s connect-everything ethos. The list is long: High-tech tools for immigration crackdowns. Fears of smartphone addiction. YouTube algorithms that steer youths into extremism. An experiment in gene-edite...

listening to joni: #7: the hissing of summer lawns

The Hissing of Summer Lawns, 1975 Front and back covers:The landscapes of the songs Joni's seventh studio album (her ninth album overall) is both a continuation and a departure. The Hissing of Summer Lawns is rich and multi-layered, somewhat enigmatic, full of interesting images and sounds that are open to interpretation. When I'm in a certain mood, this becomes my favourite of all Joni's albums, surpassing even Court and Spark in my imagination, flooring me with its beauty and compl...

PG&E: State will consider breaking up or taking over utility giant, citing poor safety record

SAN FRANCISCO – Citing Pacific Gas and Electric’s “serious safety problems,” California utility regulators will now consider replacing its board of directors, breaking up the company in favor of smaller, regional energy suppliers and even taking it over and converting it to a public agency, they announced. In an extraordinary statement issued late Friday at the start of the holiday weekend, the state Public Utilities Commission announced it will deeply investigate PG&E’s “safety culture by exami...

Southern California gas prices are falling … and falling

Gas prices have fallen for seven straight weeks in Southern California, and they’re continuing to drop as Christmas and the New Year draw closer. A pipeline problem in the Pacific Northwest will likely spur a slight price hike in the coming days, but it should be shortlived, according to one industry expert. Why the price decline? Figures from AAA and the Oil Price Information Service show the average price for regular unleaded gasoline in Los Angeles County fell over the past 52 days to $3.42...
