This Autopilot Tesla Crash That Killed 2, With A Fire That Took 4-Hours To Extinguish, Angers, Disappoints & Saddens Me.

by Anura Guruge

The above is from the U.K. ‘Daily Mail’. Click here for their outstanding coverage.

This is FRIGGING bloody wrong. This makes me very angry, sad & dissapointed.

We are NOT ready for autopilot cars, Tesla or otherwise — & I write this as a HUGE Tesla fan & a very contented & happy, v. long-term Tesla investor. Yes, this crash will send TSLA stock tumbling on Monday. That does NOT bother me much. SMILE. I invested in TSLA years ago. SMILE.

This is WRONG. Bloody WRONG.

We are just NOT there when it comes to autopilot. To plug autopilot is just pure wrong & irresponsible. Yes, ‘they’, government agencies & families should go after Tesla. Sue the pants off them — & again, I speak as one who owns more than just a few shares of Tesla.

This has to END.

We need tighter regulations about autopilot.

I would be so, so, so upset if an autopilot car killed one of my kids. Think about it.

Plus, firefighters being unable to put out the fire caused by the batteries. This is NOT RIGHT. 4-hours to put out a car fire! Jesus wept.

Click to ENLARGE and read here. Garmin Press Release at garmin.com.

Congratulations are in order, I guess — especially as I am a long-term investor in Garmin.

200 Million products shipped is quite an achievement.

On one hand I am happy. On the other, I fret, in that Garmin seems to have lost its way. FitBit, Apple and others are eating its lunch — in the wearable space.

Yes, they announce results soon.

Let’s hope that this milestone galvanizes them to take stock, gird their loins, and commit to doing even better in the future.

But, congratulations.

Today, September 4, 2017, Is Google’s 18th Birthday — It Is Now ‘Of Age’.

Wow, Larry Page and Sergey Brin incorporated Google on September 4, 1998, while still postgraduate students at Stanford. One of their early, Angel investors was Jeff Bezos of Amazon! No wonder he is so rich. I don’t recall seeing any mention, of late, that Jeff Bezos is still an investor. He most likely is, in which case we have a Google — Amazon relationship that I have never heard talked about by financial gurus.

The domain name ‘google.com‘, with “google” per se a misspelling of “googol“, i.e., 10 to the power of 100, September 15, 1997 — just under a year ahead of the incorporation.

I guess Larry and Sergey had NOT Googled “September 4” to realize that it was “E-Day”, for Edsel, a day remembered for spectacular failures. I guess Google proved that wrong.
