No, the hysteria over Tesla’s Autopilot is not blown out of proportion

Tesla Autopilot Analysis: Why Tesla Needs to Worry
As someone who has written and spoke at length strong criticism of Tesla, you might think it's a bit odd that I went out and leased one. Except, even for every weakness I saw in Tesla, there were also undeniable strengths and achievements, and I wanted to experience that. Though now we are seeing something I have been saying for a while come true — Tesla is moving way too fast for a car company. This isn't an iPhone, this is a car, and I believe that some of Tesla's current and future problems are caused by a top down lack of focus and accountability. I'm not going to make this into something incredibility high level, but offer up some specific examples of where Tesla's lack of manufacturing, engineering, and safety experience puts its drivers at risk.

Tesla is so, so screwed

Tesla Vs Porsche

Like with a lot of people, I have flirted with the idea of Tesla. Both as a company and as a potential car. I have built dozens of them on Tesla's website. I have test-driven the car five times. Each time I drive one, it's a great experience and it's still hard to fully process how incredible of a job Tesla has done. From nothing to changing the entire car industry in just under a decade is mind-blowing.

But this theme that I have repeated at practically every chance I get when discussing Tesla keeps running through my mind and it's an important one — when all the established car makers start going all-electric, what's Tesla value proposition?

Their brand? Hardly anything other than the current owners of Tesla vehicles. Their technology? Those patents were released into the public domain. Their manufacturing process? You're joking, right?

So seriously, what is Tesla's play here as far as cars are concerned? Because I don't see it.

The BGR Show: Episode 20 – This plane is going down and Hillary can’t save us

podcast-3

Why are we talking politics? Why are we talking about planes? Why are we even recording ourselves talking? Tune in for the biggest and best BGR Show ever with a special guest who's completely new to the show, Zachary Epstein.

Huge thanks to Casper for sponsoring our show this week! I have been sleeping on a Casper mattress for a couple of months and it's the best mattress I've ever tried. Better than all of my previous foam mattresses, which each cost well over double the price of a Casper.

The best part is Casper mattresses start at $500 and you can get $50 off your order by visting casper.com/bgr and using the discount code BGR at checkout.

The world’s best toothbrush

Sonicare-970

There are toothbrushes, and then there's Sonicare. It is really that simple. We could spend days arguing about the difference between other electric toothbrushes that cost less, both by Philips and other brands. We could also simply pick one that's less expensive and does a decent job like some people. But no, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean rechargable sonic toothbrush is literally the best thing I have put in my mouth aside from the sabayon sauce at Per Se.
