“Just”

Brad Frost:

“Just” makes me feel like an idiot. “Just” presumes I come from a specific background, studied certain courses in university, am fluent in certain technologies, and have read all the right books, articles, and resources. “Just” is a dangerous word.

Tesla now completes its charging network between New York and LA

Bloomberg report on the news that Tesla now has the infrastructure necessary to drive an electric car between New York to LA:

The Superchargers, currently compatible only with the Model S, provide 170 miles of range in a 30-minute charge, according to the company. The cheapest version of the Fremont, California-built car enabled to work with the Superchargers costs $73,070, according to Tesla’s website.

While filling up might only take a few minutes and get you much more range, 30 minutes for 170 miles is pretty damn impressive, and is much better than most other electric vehicles which don’t offer any quick charge option.

Love it or hate it, the battery-powered electric car is becoming an ever more feasible alternative to a petrol-powered vehicle.

Macworld interviews Schiller, Federighi and Tribble on the Mac at 30

Jason Snell interviews Phil Schiller, Craig Federighi and Bud Tribble on the 30th anniversary of the Mac:

“There is a super important role [for the Mac] that will always be,” Schiller said. “We don’t see an end to that role. There’s a role for the Mac as far as our eye can see. A role in conjunction with smartphones and tablets, that allows you to make the choice of what you want to use. Our view is, the Mac keeps going forever, because the differences it brings are really valuable.”

A must-read.
