Can someone explain why Ferret hates Tesla so much? It seems to be a weird minor theme.

In memorium. Bob Hoover died 25 Oct 2016 at 94. In WWII he was shot down in a Spitfire and stole an FW-190 to escape. He spent decades at air shows flying Ole Yeller, shown

Any car with the latest WiFi on-board diagnostics is vulnerable, so any car newer than 2014 I've heard.

Since there's no legitimate purpose for operating critical car operations remotely, they should be air-gapped. Make users (or dealers) plug something in to upgrade the firmware and remove it to run the car. This also prevents repeated attacks to discover a password etc.

I don't think he actually hates it (correct me if I'm wrong, Steven - if I recall right you don't want one and don't want it to be mandatory, but don't actually hate the tech?), he just likes to post tech articles he finds interesting. Automated cars are coming, so more (especially bad stuff) about them is just gonna crop up.

Probably tried to short their stock and got his balls handed to him. He does seem like one of those basement traders trying to make it big in the game.

Big Carpenter's fan. Has all their ablums (spelled properly).

One ran over his tail; he's not been the same ferret since.

Can someone (it could be you, doesn't have to be) please explain what windsagio's issue is with Tesla posts?

You have a weird defensive fixation dude.

Pretty much. I do think they're vastly overpriced toys but kinda like the idea of an electric vehicle per se. I'm looking forward to the newer GM introductions, for example. Living on a heavy mountain gravel road, having a car that doesn't have dangly bits hanging underneath to catch on every damn rock on the road would be nice.

Sorry, never owned their stock....that's too risky a bet for my tastes.
