Apple cancels its autonomous electric car project

Intro LO: Apple’s decision (to cancel its autonomous electric car project) may well be far more important than it looks like. Probably, it will also imply that Tesla will never be able to deliver on its many (similar) promises. Once that thought sinks in, Tesla’s share price will sink further. Autonomous driving has five (or six) levels (source): Level 0: no Driving...

Does a Superpower need pragmatism?

Before Covid-19, many articles assumed that the Chinese economy would soon surpass the American economy. Even before Covid-19, I never believed that. Nowadays, many articles assume that China may never become an economic Superpower. As long as the CCCP rules, that new belief is valid. Hence, my blog title: does a Superpower need pragmatism?

It contains 8 (default) folders and some 45 apps, including all of the apps of my first screen. I minimize storing apps on my iPhone. I prefer deleting seldomly used apps. I'm always amazed by people who have 5-10...

NIVEA: Niet Invullen Voor Een Ander

Jaren geleden leerde ik bovenstaande afkorting (NIVEA) kennen. Waarschijnlijk was ik toen bezig met het beantwoorden van mijn eigen vraag, die ik vlak daarvoor had gesteld. Onze veronderstellingen omtrent de intenties van een (onbekende) ander leiden vaak tot - terechte - irritatie. De afkorting NIVEA speelt vooral tussen onbekenden. Bij bekenden komt het vaak niet...
