Quote, "outdated, noisy, inefficient manifestations of an industry trying to squeeze marginal innovation out of an inferior approach to powering four wheels". Not harsh, but 100% correct.

Keystone was never about U.S. energy supplies.
It was always about getting tar sands oil from Koch Bros. owned sites in Alberta to Koch owned refineries in a free trade zone in Texas and the refined products primarily to be exported to BRIC countries TAX FREE .

As rumors fly about the impending Keystone XL permit denial, U.S. solar generation soars to new heights thanks partly to the support of corporate citizens.

+James Monroe I support wind and solar both, and hydro for the parts of the world that can benefit from energy produced by falling water or wave motion.  Solar, I believe, is the most practical for homes, but it is still too expensive for most people to install a system with enough power to replace the amount of energy required to completely cover at least the "average kWh" used in the average home during the "active" part of the day.  Most installs I've seen are enough to power a refrigerator, a few lights, and the furnace or A/C, if even that much...I believe the solar "revolution" should aim at replacing the entire application of wired commercial power, most especially for rural areas, like where I live...what I would build, if I could afford it, would be a solar array and controller that would provide at least 5-6kW of combined 12-24VDC and 240 VAC, a battery pack to store the energy, and a 7.5kW wind generator to back up the charging process...

Elon Musk ‏@elonmusk 
- With same options, Model X is $5k more than an S due to greater size & body complexity. Sig Series is fully loaded, hence high price.
- Model 3, our smaller and lower cost sedan will start production in about 2 years. Fully operational Gigafactory needed.
- $35k price, unveil in March, preorders start then.

Scott Lucas ‏@ScottLucasNV 
Did @elonmusk play Nevada over lithium mining? Or did state lawmakers just fail to do their homework?

Elon Musk @elonmusk 
‏@ScottLucasNV Lithium deal is not exclusive & has many contingencies. The press on this matter is unwarranted.

Scott Lucas ‏@ScottLucasNV 
-@elonmusk Love to get you to talk to our reporter so we can get the story right.
-@elonmusk Would it be correct to infer that Tesla is pursuing Nevada sources of lithium as well?

Elon Musk ‏@elonmusk 
@ScottLucasNV Definitely

First production cars will be handed over on Sept 29 at our Fremont factory

+Alessio Sangalli Seriously? You just ignore the history of Apple Computer and the relevance of his comment? You can have your opinion, but be sure that it is wrong.
Besides, you don't think Tesla is hype and design? It's mostly what it gets on by. There are better quality cars out there (Mercedes, BMW, Porsche etc.) Tesla "just" chose to go full electric. But if you don't know the story of Apple and why they became so popular to start with (which is the topic of discussion), then this discussion, and your reply, is irrelevant.

Blue Origin’s rocket-landing patent canceled in victory for SpaceX
"Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space venture has capitulated to +Elon Musk's SpaceX in a dispute over a Blue Origin patent covering the landing of rockets at sea.

In an order made public today, the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board granted a motion to cancel the remaining 13 of 15 claims in the Blue Origin rocket-landing patent. Blue Origin itself had made the motion to cancel those claims, effectively acknowledging that its case was lost.

Blue Origin, based in Kent, Wash., has separately filed a “reissue” patent application covering the same general area. However, SpaceX has already attempted multiple rocket landings at sea and would likely be grandfathered in, allowing it to continue the practice, even if Blue Origin were to ultimately succeed in securing a valid patent.

#SpaceX had already won a key early round in March in its attempt to invalidate the Blue Origin patent.

Representatives of both companies declined to comment on the latest ruling.

+Blue Origin applied in June 2010 for the patent, “Sea landing of space launch vehicles and associated systems and methods,” outlining a system for launching a rocket from a coastal launch site and recovering the booster by landing it vertically, tail-first, on a platform at sea — using the booster engines to control the descent. The patent was granted in March of last year.

SpaceX disputed the Blue Origin patent, citing prior work by researchers and scientists who proposed techniques similar to those in Blue Origin’s patent long before the patent was filed. “The ‘rocket science’ claimed in the ‘321 patent was, at best, ‘old hat’ by 2009,” wrote SpaceX in its petition.

Blue Origin, based in Kent, Wash., is focusing heavily on vertical landings as part of its overall approach to commercial spaceflight."
Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin space venture has capitulated to Elon Musk's SpaceX in a dispute over a Blue Origin patent covering the landing of rockets at sea.

This is a new thing the US governments been getting bought out the last 10 years and people trying to patent stuff that already exists.  Patents are designed to protect new innovations.  If someones already been doins something for years and someone copys it thats not a patented innovation.  Its patent theft and abuse.

Story
Tagline
Dedicated to getting the REAL Elon Musk more active on Google Plus
Introduction
“changing the energy cycle from petroleum-based to solar-electric; and moving into space.”

(expropriated from Wikipedia)


Elon Musk (born June 28, 1971) is an American engineer and entrepreneur best known for co-founding PayPalSpaceX and Tesla Motors. He is currently the CEO and CTO of SpaceX, CEO and Product Architect of Tesla Motors and Chairman of SolarCity. Musk is best known for having created the first viable production electric car of the modern era (Tesla Roadster), for designing a private successor to the Space Shuttle (F9/Dragon) and creating the world's largest Internet payment system (PayPal).

The Tagline has been changed (Nov09, 2012) from Verified to more active because Mr. Musk does indeed have a G+ profile that is verified ( +114461178896543099856 )   and he has used it for the occasional hangout and posted a few photos. However fans always want more, so I will continue to echo his Tweets and post news items till he (or his media minion) take on this task. However I do appreciate that he is an extremely busy individual and I guess spending his time changing the personal transportation industry and going to Mars rather than posting to various social media sites is acceptable. ;)
