A Tesla Powerwall stores 13.5kWh and costs $9,200 without installation.

A Rivian R1T with the storage capacity of exactly 10 Powerwalls costs less than 10x one Powerwall, and has the hardware needed for vehicle-to-home power (software support coming later this year).

So basically if you need 10 Powerwalls you can get it from Rivian and get the mobility for free.

The point isn’t that people should buy EVs instead of home batteries. The point is that home batteries are drastically overpriced (and Powerwalls are the cheapest example!)

@vitriolix It depends on your usage scenario, but realistically the answer is either 1 or 2.

10 Powerwalls are good for multi-family structures, or entirely off-grid properties where they charge from a solar farm and you want to be able to withstand a week of cloudy skies.

I think most people don’t know that “Pravda”, the name of the propaganda paper for the Russian communist party since 1912, is “Truth” in Russian.

Trump’s name choice for “Truth Social” was no accident.

@timoj Orwell got a lot of inspiration from communism.

Is there any possible name that more loudly screams “please let us be confused with an Apple product” than Huawei’s ‘MateBook X Pro’?

I watched “Wish” last night and I had no idea Kirby was a Disney property.

One day in October, a few days after I've installed that year's iOS update, I'm going to wake up and find that all my voice memos have been transcribed*, aren't I.

This would be... good and helpful?

@danhon I mean, they did it with your photos, and it’s really handy once you know you can search for text in photos.

I don’t mean to be pedantic, but if you’re on a planet with three suns isn’t that a four-body problem?

@jessamyn Oh I would to compare contemporary time travel book lists with you! That’s my jam.

kfury,
@kfury@mstdn.social avatar

@jessamyn Thanks for this! Several I would recommend are in there, and others I’m adding to my list.

Two I would add are “Marooned in Realtime” by Vernor Vinge and “The Accidental Time Machine” by Joe Haldeman, both of which are entirely (or almost entirely) forward-only stories.

kfury,
@kfury@mstdn.social avatar

@jessamyn And if you have a time machine at your disposal, jump forward to 2027 and check out “Agronautica”. I should have it published by then.

@wjrasmussen No, but disagreeing and giving clearly wrong answers aren’t the same thing.
