    That's sort of the point.

    You saying "I'll stick to the harley engine" even in the face of technological advances is like someone saying "I'll stick to my commodore 64, those 'laptops' sound like a load of bull pucky."

    I'm perplexed as to why people are so up in arms about technological progress.
    We are up in arms that is being forced before it is even ready.

    Or hell, tell it to the people who are operating the multitude of battery-powered buses and vehicles already in use around the world.



    So don't buy it. You're acting as if anyone gives a **** about what you drive, while repeatedly ignoring the fact that nobody is claiming its necessarily a good investment for everyone at this point.





    As opposed to the externalized costs from the burning of fossil fuels?



    So your argument is that without government investment, battery technology will forever remain frozen in time?



    Again, your nonsensical fringe ideas about government and its role have nothing to do with the technology and its uses.
    The US is behind the rest of the world on battery technology.

    So when is Obama going to have the ribbon-cutting ceremony?

    We have 3 Mac's including the one I am using right now, and I'd bet that I have spent less on computers over the last say 10 years than any PC owner.

    Yeah, but then you have to have a Mac. PC rigging, run Linux; good to go.

    I think it is worth the money. It is also less likely to get a virus.
