MC2BackUp Post 2069 How TESLA Outpolished Apple's SE Last Week




Leo's still on the cutting edge of TECH Newscasting...  Explaining quite eloquently on what all-the-hubbub was taking place around Tesla Dealer sites.



Tesla looked like the release of a new "iPhone".  



Except the latest offering from Apple, the iPhone SE was greeted with a


"Ho-Hum.  Seen that..." response.  


And No Lines !!!   




From: USAToday

 
In Santa Monica, California, excited Tesla enthusiasts formed a line hundreds of people long to be among the first to place a $1000 pre-order on the still unrevealed Tesla Model 3 expected to cost around $35,000 for the base model. 



SANTA MONICA, Calif. — In a scene that was repeated across the country, about 300 people lined up in front of the Tesla showroom here Thursday ready to plunk down a $1,000 deposit on an electric car they hadn't yet seen.
The crowds at Tesla stores reflected anticipation ahead of the unveiling of Tesla's Model 3, its first mass-market electric car. The two- and three-hour waits to make a reservation were an indication that Tesla's gamble may pay off when it comes to luring middle America into considering its electric cars — 

even at a time of low gas prices.

MC2BackUp Post 2068 Just Because it's April 1st. this is Not A JOKE!






The News came at the Hoopla in San Francisco, last Week, during

 the Windows BUILD Event 2016.



And the craziest news (from a Bizzarro world) 
You would have missed if you 'blinked' .

Linux running natively on the Windows 10 Desktop.  And Not in a

Virtual Machine!!!


This is something I would Not have Imagined in a 100 years. 

It seems the powers that be know a lot of very good developers like

Linux and are quite comfortable

writing "Code" in it.
