He had a favorable public image and a great track record of business success. Not sure why he's working so hard to tear that down. His antics are most likely to alienate the same group of people who either already are or could conceivably be Tesla buyers, many of whom may now seek another brand of EV to avoid association with his toxic personality.

Not buying a Tesla shouldn't have anything to do with the company founder.

They are shitty cars with shitty maintenance requirements with big price tags. Was reading an article from someone who actually likes Tesla's, talking about how much higher his maintenance costs were than he thought they were going to be.

I kinda like the Tesla infotainment, and if you like danger, they do have the most hands off driver assist (except for gms supercruise on the limited mapped roads) but you’re right about the rest of the car. Other manufacturers basically are making better cars in every way.

Quote :
"Elon Musk has said his X social media platform will pay the legal bills and sue on the behalf of people who have been treated unfairly by employers because of posting or liking something on the site formerly known as Twitter.

'If you were unfairly treated by your employer due to posting or liking something on this platform, we will fund your legal bill,' Musk said in a post on X late on Saturday, adding that there will be no limits to funding the bills.

'And we won't just sue, it will be extremely loud and we will go after the boards of directors of the companies too,' Musk said later in response to a post about nothing changing behavior in the U.S. faster than a threat of legal action."

So a company purportedly in financial trouble is offering unlimited legal aid to loser shooting off at the mouth and not wanting to face the real-world consequences? How can this possibly miss?!

Quote :
"In March, Musk, along with dozens of tech leaders, signed an open letter calling for a six-month pause in the development of advanced A.I. technology. 'Contemporary AI systems are now becoming human-competitive at general tasks, and we must ask ourselves: Should we let machines flood our information channels with propaganda and untruth?' the letter said. 'Should we automate away all the jobs, including the fulfilling ones? Should we develop nonhuman minds that might eventually outnumber, outsmart, obsolete and replace us?'

Yet in the period during which Musk endorsed a pause, he was working to build xAI, recruiting from major competitors, including OpenAI, and even, according to someone with knowledge of the conversation, contacting leadership at Nvidia, the dominant maker of chips used in A.I. The month the letter was distributed, Musk completed the registrations for xAI."

"Elon Musk secretly ordered his engineers to turn off his company's Starlink satellite communications network near the Crimean coast last year to disrupt a Ukrainian sneak attack on the Russian naval fleet...

As Ukrainian submarine drones strapped with explosives approached the Russian fleet, they 'lost connectivity and washed ashore harmlessly'...

Musk's decision, which left Ukrainian officials begging him to turn the satellites back on, was driven by an acute fear that Russia would respond to a Ukrainian attack on Crimea with nuclear weapons, a fear driven home by Musk's conversations with senior Russian officials..."

Musk is saying that he didn't turn it off, the starlink access was already in a certain area and he refused a request to extend it up to that part in Crimea.

Quote :
"In August, a Russian warship was seriously damaged in a Ukrainian naval drone attack on Russia's Black Sea navy base at Novorossiysk, the first time the Ukrainian navy has projected its power so far from the country's shores."


He does have some deal with the US govt., though, doesn't he? So I wonder how that affects what powers he has in this situation
