Deep breath, ICEs will not disappear anytime soon. We might see (notice) a change in proportion but they will be here for as long as I live, along with my children and I will even say my grandchildren. Things will be different, and probably much better by then.
I am still reeling from the loss of my lawn dart game! And then, they took all the lead out of gasoline. Well, we all know what kind of mess that caused. No, no changes for me....Things were better a long time ago. There was a movement for a KETO diet. It was a diet that the cavemen ate and was supposed to be far better for you. Of course the life expectancy of a cave man wasn't so high, but that didn't slow them down.....

Chrysler-Stellantis has been in a slow death spiral since the days of Robert Nardelli and Cerberus Capital. The only thing maintaining a 'pulse' is probably Ram.

Interesting video posted today.
Tesla Gas Can 2.0!! - EcoFlow DELTA Pro

Most people would know how many miles they are going and have their EV charged up without a need for this just like an ICE vehicle.

Not really surprising. Most CPUs (Intel in PCs and servers, Qualcomm in smartphones, and A-series processors in Apple and some other products), and GPUs (graphical chips from NVidia and AMD) are mostly made in the US.


TSMC in Taiwan makes all of that and almost none of the most advanced chips are made in the US.


Not true. Intel microprocessors are made in the US.

TSMC makes NVidia, AMD, and Qualcomm chips. While most of their fabs are in Taiwan, they do also have a fab in the US.

Not yet. Intel is working on it, but their chips aren't made by TSMC yet.
