Re: Whisper it…
"Additionally, Autopilot works well. I should know, having covered thousands of tedious traffic-laden motorway miles with it."
Have you got autopilot V1 or V2? My V1 works well, but everyone I know who has V2 complains about it.
Shame they had to ditch V1 after Mobileye dumped Tesla for taking too many risks.
El Reg has screwed up
The Register is normally good at covering tech stories, but they have screwed up royally here.
As others have alluded to, this invention is about diodes, not batteries. It lowers the power consumption of any electronic device that uses diodes, and hence lengthens battery life if that device is baterry-powered.
Look at the press release:
El Reg missed an important part of the quote therein:
"Semiconductor diodes and amplifiers, which often are made of silicon or germanium, are key elements in modern electronic devices"
Re: Oh, the irony
You are wrong. Currency gains are subject to CGT.
From the HMRC manual:
"When foreign currency is held in a bank account and the account has a credit balance, the account is an asset for the purposes of capital gains tax.
For capital gains purposes all gains and losses must be computed in sterling (see CG78310) so on the disposal of all or part of this asset a capital gain or loss may arise."
