Datsun On-DO in Russia

Lifehack from Kim Dotcom

All phones have spy backdoors these days. But if you live outside of China buy a phone from Huawei and use encrypted communication apps. That way it’s the Chinese spying on you and they don’t share your data with US / EU spy agencies 😎 #PickYourSpies

Tesla just months from total collapse, says hedge fund manager — RT Business News

Tesla just months from total collapse, says hedge fund manager — RT Business News

The American electric-car company Tesla will be bankrupt within four months unless its CEO Elon Musk “pulls a rabbit out of his hat,” according to hedge fund manager John Thompson.

“Companies eventually have to make a profit, and I don’t ever see that happening here,” the head of Vilas Capital Management told Market Watch.
“This is one of the worst income statements I’ve ever seen and between the story and the financials; the financials will win out in this case.”
Thompson manages $25 million and his Tesla short is the fund’s biggest position. He has been betting big against the electric automaker for years.
Last April, Tesla stock hit a record high of around $300 and continued to grow to $389.61. Nevertheless, Thompson’s fund still managed to churn out a 65-percent gain for the year.
Since then, Tesla has fallen sharply and Thompson is confident his bet is about to pay off. Tesla shares were down more than 8 percent at Wednesday closing to $279.18.
The hedge fund manager said that if his prediction comes true, his fund could surge by another 50 percent. He noted that he is investing $500,000 of his own money.
“Tesla, without any doubt, is on the verge of bankruptcy,” Thompson told clients in an email. He explained that funding will be hard to come by in the face of problems in delivering the Model 3, declining demand for the Model S and X, extreme valuation, and a likely downgrade of its credit rating by Moody’s from B- to CCC.

Thanks, Elon!

Bye, Elon!

First Self-Driving Car Pedestrian Death

As reported by the BBC website:

Uber halts self-drivng car tests after death.

Uber said it is suspending self-driving car tests in all North American cities after a fatal accident.
A woman was hit by a car and killed as she crossed the street in Tempe, Arizona.
While self-driving cars have been involved in several accidents, it is thought to be the first time a self-driving car has been involved in a fatal collision.
Uber chief Dara Khosrowshahi said the death was "incredibly sad news".
"We're thinking of the victim's family as we work with local law enforcement to understand what happened," he said in a tweet.
This self-driving (and now, self-murdering) crap was pioneered by Elon Musk.

Thanks, Elon.
