tesla engineering makes absolutely batshit insane decisions in their firm commitment to musky’s “not invented here syndrome”

they are the worst customer and will return hardware completely stripped / disassembled after they’re done figuring out how they can build it themselves at higher cost and worse functionality

I hope that 90% of the visiting HN crowd are just disgusted and slink away

and 10% are like, "this looks like way more fun," and join to become mid-tier shitposters

make them feel at home, start a thread discussing salary offers for L2 shitposters where all the numbers are inflated by at least 50%

hmm, yes, and then a thread about how to value startup equity

and another thread about how to claw back startup equity

I talked to a guy yesterday who complained about hiring “labor workers” who get paid $15/hr to do manual labor (warehouse), “don’t show up to work consistently”, etc — basically bitching about the millions of hourly labor workers. he had only ever worked “professional” jobs he said.

So, I found this thread thanks to twitter, and I know this is an older post of yours, but as an EE, this scares the ever living gently caress out of me.

Please tell me they had some sort of protection that kept the superchargers from activating accidentally, like say if some kid touched the prongs.

are there enough of us for a stupid hardware thread? software doesn’t have a monopoly on morons

EE as well here, from my understanding, the chargers have the option of AC and DC output at varying levels adjustable on your model and charging needs. Software interlock apparently controls it, so you're not just gonna have kiddies tapping and zapping (I'd hope)

It's DC voltage so not quite as dangerous but lol @ the raw amount of wear and tear that much energy would put on off-the-shelf Li-ON battery assembly

the state of EV charging puts VHS vs Betamax vs Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD to shame

what do superchargers do in the cold? do they preheat the battery?

What does your heart tell you.

there’s no way that it doesn’t throttle charge current until the battery is above 0C or so to avoid permanently damaging the cells

if you think tesla has it bad, ohhh man. there are other connected cars (jeep) which have been demonstrably remote-rooted in really horrific ways. there's a bunch of poo poo coming out of china that was made by the Chinese company and Bosch/delphi/whoever and i guarantee you they don't do due diligence like we did. my point in general being that connected cars, privacy, security - these are industry wide issues and should be addressed

do we know each other?

only did cars for a while tesla ruined my taste for it but i keep up a little bit. the china stuff is really interesting because they're making some really neat looking cars that look totally unsafe

not only do they look unsafe, pray that the results of software audits and functional safety assessments never become public

I also think they tried to automate too much - at some point you have to pay humans to assemble your car in bulk, you can't cut out the middle man. musk is nothing if not an old-school factory baron

They could make a whole Tesla children's puzzle book. "Can you spot all 10 defects in this car?"

and is it one of those hosed up ones where they tell you there are 10 but really there are more and then you get yelled at as a child for not being thorough and detail orientated enough?
