Dear Google,

This is awesome, and you should allow yourself the ten minutes you'll need to read and digest this.

Since my wife +Kate Gordon-Bloomfield and I met Kathryn Walton-Elliott as first the girlfriend of and then later the fiancee and wife of my long-term, dearest friend +Katherine Walton-Elliott I've come to know her as a wonderfully kind, beautiful woman whose generosity knows no bounds and whose softly-spoken ways hide an amazing multitude of wondrous experiences.

I may write for a living and I may also be an artist in my own way as a musician. But Kathryn Walton-Elliott transcends my own feeble attempts at prose with a soul that only a few are privileged enough to own.

You should read this. Now.

And yes, I Really am married to a Kathryn (who is a Kate), have a best friend who is a Katherine (who is also a Kate) who happens to be married to a Kathryn (who is a Kathryn). That's even before you mention another friend, also called +Kate Hopkins...

Forget Tesla's Autopilot: consumers are still very concerned about autonomous vehicles.

https://transportevolved.com/2016/05/23/study-suggests-race-for-self-driving-cars-may-hit-a-major-roadblock-consumer-trust-education/
In the automotive world today, there are two major disruptive technologies gaining the lion's share of the spotlight when it comes to investment and research opportunities: electrified vehicle technology and self-driving cars. From Nissan to GM and Tesla to Toyota, every major automaker in the world today is investing in both technologies in some way or another, either choosing to set up Silicon Valley research centers to attract software and ...

It's the biggest automotive market by volume in Europe and is home to Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW -- not to mention their associated brands like Audi, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Smart. It also happens to be a world-leader in solar power, thanks in part to forward-thinking feed-in energy tariffs that drove more than fifteen years of exponential growth in domestic and commercial photovoltaic installations. But while Germany has been forward-...

Looks like Ford isn't the only one looking to produce lower-spec electric cars. And that's a good thing because the market needs choice for all income brackets, not just the rich who can afford a Tesla.

As global weather patterns get more extreme and our planet already teetering on the edge of hitting the dangerous 1.5-degree celsius global warming threshold at which manmade global warming could have irreversible effects, time is rapidly running out for society to make the switch from fossil fuels to clean, renewable sources of energy. From the way we power our homes to the type of fuel our cars use, we all need to make the switch as soon as pos...

I wonder: how long will it take before someone makes a new range record in the Model S 90D?

https://transportevolved.com/2016/04/25/tesla-model-s-facelift-brings-with-it-303-mile-epa-approved-highway-range-for-long-legged-90d-model/
Eleven days ago, Tesla Motors [NASDAQ:TSLA] unveiled a face lift for its Model S electric sedan. Essentially a mid-cycle refresh for the popular all-electric luxury car, the new Model S gained a refreshed nose with the same grillless design found in the Tesla Model X electric SUV and upcoming 2018 Tesla Model 3 electric sedan. It also featured a new, more powerful on-board charger, as well as the addition of a few new interior trim options and...

The Controversy I Never Expected.


Last week, something terrible happened in Orlando, Florida. Then on Thursday, another terrible thing happened in the UK.

In both cases, people were shot and killed because of the religious and/or political views of people who had access to guns.

And this week to start the TEN show, I prepared a short introduction video appealing to viewers to stand by the GLBT community in solidarity this week at local pride events. I asked people to put aside religion, race, sexuality and gender and to respect each other as humans.

And wow. What a negative backlash I've had. People are unsubscribing from the channel. People are furious that I'm bringing a 'Homosexual Agenda' into the show. (P.S., I'm not).

I've had people send me hate mail. I've had people threaten to remove their Patreon support. And I've made sure there's a way for people to skip the first part of the message if they didn't want to hear it.

I wish I understood why people are so mean to one another.

Thanks humankind. I feel crap now.

I second "Nothing wrong with the intro at all, completely appropriate given the recent events." I'd also like to add that you spoke very well.
Well done Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield! I'm proud and always experience restored hope when I hear and see people like you---despite our two birth countries perhaps making Brexit and Trump mistakes, we will inevitably, if slowly, move forward.

Autopilot will take time like cell phones while electronic vehicles are a no brainier.

Never trust automations. A 4000# vehicle might be acceptable, but not Daimler's possible 80,000# autorig.

For as long as we can remember, reverse engineering has been part of the automotive industry for a very long time. It's no secret in fact that automakers spend hundreds of thousands of dollars every year trying to figure out just what gives their rivals a competitive edge in the marketplace. Here's how it works. First, automakers send buyers out to buy brand-new examples of rival's cars, often with cold, hard cash. Then they ship those cars to...

Introduction

Too geeky to be a hipster.

Founder, editor-in chief at Transport Evolved, explaining technology that makes cars cleaner, greener, safer and smarter. Also writes on everything from gender issues to computer tech and adoptive parenting.

Trained as a classical oboist but went to the dark side for the cookies and venti soya latte.

Total Mac geek, Classic car nut and tech fan. Early adopter. Of everything.

Married to Kate. Mom to two wonderful adopted kids.

Sometimes found terrorising the neighbourhood in costume, but looks equally stupid in arctic weather gear and bunny suits.

Bragging rights
Survived the odd job change, gender change and even underwear change. How about you?

We arrived from the UK wanting a Nissan LEAF to replace the one we'd left behind in England. Platt Auto listened to our needs, and let us pick the car we wanted in super-quick time. They also handle the registration and DMV for you, and work with the local credit unions. Super-quick purchase, and great car that worked out far more affordable than a brand-new lease. Thanks :) We'll be coming by again.
