Petrol cars are dead in the water, says Tesla CTO waving numbers on the back of an envelope

Re: Still a bit confused

Yep, it's being moved, and that's still a very good thing.

1. Power plants are more efficient that car engines, the pollutey far less per unit.

2. Every time a petrol car goes on the road, it's stuck polluting. When an electric car is delivered, it's possible to change it's ultimate power source. Commission a new Nuke / windfarm / solar / hamster wheel - all the electric cars get cleaner. The petrol ones do not.

Shame...

I used to rather enjoy reading the reckons left by their very special breed of commentards. Like the Daily Mail commentards with a better vocabulary. Nastier too.

Ruby 2.0.0 adds syntax sparkle, boosts performance

Dakuan

The performance issues were largely resolved with 1.9.3 anyway. I was recently liberated from .NET to ruby / rails development and am loving it. The ruby gems ecosystem is awesome although some of the things rails does / at least encourages gives me the heebie jeebies

Have Brits fallen for Netflix, or do they still LoveFilm?

Dakuan

The thing that grinds my gears about Love Film its the websites ghastly UI. It's better than it used to be when every episode of a series got displayed individually and you had to scroll through pages of doctor who episodes to find anything. But it ought not to be beyond them to display a TV Show as one item, rather than each season.
