this raises so many questions i don't even know where to start. not even on the privacy front, just how that data could be useful for autonomous lane keeping and cruise control

I don't really work in that space, so I can't tell you. At the time everyone made it out to be a big deal - if you consider how far other players are in that space now (waymo) I'm not convinced tesla has anything in the current gens that's even close to worthwhile. autonomous driving is a rabbit hole - another thread for that if people want to discuss that

what are people talking about with post-apple jobs? next and pixar are kindof big deals. yeah, no consumers bought next poo poo, but it still had it's place and was the precursor to osx.

apple did a whole lot of stupid poo poo in between jobs times, but jobs became the largest single shareholder of disney because of his actions in the late 80s and into the 90s.

what did steve do in the 90s that was such a big failure?

yeah, and macs in the 90s had virtually nothing to do with jobs. he came back into the company in 97 and had to cycle out all the garbage they were producing while also building osx in the background and getting ready to switch architecture.

90s era apple had fuckall to do with steve jobs.

jobs tried to create a computer company and ended up making a movie studio

then he tried to create another computer company and only made an operating system

finally he returned to his original computer company and turned it into a phone company

next stuff helped power a lot of early internet things and likewise was used on the backend of said studio.

granted he didn't succeed with his original intent with pixar or next, he still was wildly successful from apple to apple.

ackthually, everyone at Pixar wanted to make movies from day 1, all the rendering computer stuff was just them scrambling around to try and earn some kind of revenue until they got to the point of Toy Story being possible

like, he could have been the next Bosch and cornered the market as the premiere electric powertrain supplier for the industry but instead he overshot and now every other car manufacturer has invested the time and money to re-create his work and are going to cannibalize his market. It's hilarious

I'm interested to see what happens with that charger network VW agreed to build because of the cheating lawsuits. They can't put their branding or products on any of it, so the one TV spot I saw promoting the brand just looked like some kind of industry consortium ad featuring multiple manufacturers. Hopefully the chargers aren't something they are going to sabotage or abandon the moment that they are no longer legally required to keep them up
