@sanatpatel I disagree with both of your points. @sanatpatel But data is the big differentiator for all future autonomous features and Tesla is way ahead @sanatpatel Tesla has not had a problem getting customers and we will now see how well they scale production.This Nerdy App Could Be Even More Addicting Than Pokémon Go via @FortuneMagazine https://t.co/iaWyrPEAhn @sanatpatel IMO software car + data + electrification is the threat, not hybrids.News. https://t.co/EALqRJdB2zThis is what Reddit would look like if it was born in the mobile era - @AminoApps by @benpopper https://t.co/kjFE81b5Q8 @aweissman he and chris Jackson teared up during OLT on Sat @counternotions exactly! I believe he prefers them all not to die, but to follow his path. They are doing their best to kill themselves. @counternotions not only that but they actively dismiss Tesla and are certain of its impending demise. GM chairman on CNBC 2 months ago... @aweissman a great one. I was on OLT ever since @Lin_Manuel mentioned it on Sunday.The @nytimes should make @spaydl CEO. Finally some progress.
