Can A More Focus Early Bird Reap The Rewards of EV Market? Neglecting This Market Will Be The Downfall of Any Great Automaker In The Coming Days?

Before you read on, I want to clarify my standing in regard to the pure electrical vehicle all related matters.  To sum it up, I do think the EV market will be huge in the future.  Furthermore, I bought some common shares (stock) and go long on an EV maker which I will not name here.  So, my standing is that I’m biased and positive in the EV sector.

A question I want to address in this blog post is that can a country or a company in a car industry be left behind by ignoring the EV market? It seems Toyota is still moving too slow on going all-in in producing pure electrical cars.  I’m wondering, perhaps, Toyota thinks that the EV market is not big enough and there isn’t enough demand for EV out there, and so it’s OK for them to move slowly into this market.  Nonetheless, I think this would be a big mistake for Toyota and other automakers out there that think the same way as Toyota is currently thinking in regards to EV of all things.

I suspect that Tesla and other EV makers out there who are going long and early into the EV market will be able to set some standards for the whole EV industry.  Why do you think Chinese and South Korean automakers cannot shine brighter than automakers in Japan and Europe? Well, most automakers in Europe and Japan have been at the game much longer than the ones in South Korea and China.  The European and Japan automakers have been churning out complicated but well respected non-luxurious and luxurious vehicles with internal combustion engines for decades.  Nonetheless, when it comes to electrical vehicles, it’s still anybody’s game.

I’m no expert in the auto industry and whatever I’m spewing here is just an ordinary Joe’s perspective on the car industry.  Nonetheless, my suspicion is that the EV market will be so huge and has a very big potential for investors because of several things. 

Firstly, China got the biggest auto consumption market in the world.  Nowadays, if you’re an automaker, I doubt that you would want to neglect such a big auto market as the one in China.  So, when the Chinese government prioritizes EV (and other new energy sources for making vehicles and other transportation means) — I think it’s a very big deal.  After all, the Chinese government demands a certain percentage of pure EVs to be made and sold by each automaker that wants to participate in a growing Chinese auto market.

Secondly, as a country like China and Germany build up EV charging points to promote pure electric vehicles, people are going to be more comfortable to go out and buy more EVs since they know they can charge their vehicles anywhere eventually.  Meanwhile, some EV makers are also trying to improve battery range and charging speed, and thus greatly enhancing the demand for a pure electric vehicle.  Some automakers go as far as to provide a battery switching option which could take less than five minutes to switch out a drained out battery with a full charge one so you can drive your EV out of the charging station in no time.

I think high-cost value products like a car rely on reputation a lot.  Thus, I think when all necessary ingredients are eventually be put in place for the pure electric automakers to thrive, they only have their reputation to depend and fall back onto.  This means, whoever is in the game the longest doesn’t necessarily be the best, the biggest, and the most awesome if the reputation is stink.  Nonetheless, when the time is right for the EV sector to grow, a great reputation is exactly the thing a pure electric automaker needs to thrive onward.  Thus, I think as long a pure electric automaker got an early head start and keeps on building a great reputation, it will be very hard for the newcomers to come in and uprooting the foundation of the great pure electric automaker.

One more thing, Mr. Bill Gates had mentioned that it was his mistake of not pushing more focus into the smartphone industry thus Apple and other Android smartphone makers were able to thrive but Microsoft did not do so great in making a well respected and well-known smartphone.  I think Toyota and whatever automakers out there should take the lesson of Microsoft in regards to being a more focus early bird.

Self-Driving Trucks Are Going To Become Very Real, Really Soon! Andrew Yang Isn’t Lying!

Has Andrew Yang been so right about automation is slowly taking over more jobs, especially for the trucking industry? Well, check out CNBC video right after the break to see how customer focus of retailers like Amazon has driven more people into developing self-driving trucks!

How sure are we that black hole is not a product of a massive gravity implosion that rips a hole into the fabric of 3D/4D dimensional space in which light and everything else got sucks out to another side?

My imagination runs wild like a horse in the wild today, and so today it’s all about black hole and infinity and Calculus. To tell the truth, I’m not at all great in math, and so Calculus is so out there for me. Furthermore, I have not been back to school for ages, and so I might be a thousand miles away from the right answer when I’m trying to do a complicated math problem such as a hard Algebraic problem and so forth. Still, I’m a carefree person sometimes, and today is that day when I don’t care if I’m right or wrong.

According to the YouTube video right after the break, a black hole is formed because of the massive gravitational collapse of a dead star. Personally, I like to say a massive gravitational implosion because it sounds cooler! Anyway, the video right after the break explains how black hole forms in detail.

Today, I imagine that because of massive collapse or implosion of dense gravitational strength which, in my opinion, allows the core of a dead star not really was squashed into nothingness but was pushed so hard that it stretched and ripped a hole of our 3D/4D spatial space — thus pushing and ejecting the core of the dead star through another spatial dimension. This way, as if you can imagine that a hypersonic plane got punctured with a massive hole and thus anything got closer to the hole would get eject and suck out of the plane. The hypersonic plane is the container or the fabric of our 3D/4D spatial dimension and the outside is a bigger dimension that imprisons our 3D/4D spatial dimension.

Why black hole is always round like a circle and not a square? You know, if you push a ball through a massive piece of easy to be ripped tissue, you could probably create a square or a weird shape of the hole in the tissue right? Here comes the part of infinity and Calculus — hence circle.

Since Calculus was probably started by the ancient mathematics geniuses who were hypnotized by trying to work with a circle or whatever was more meaningful than a circle that led to their wonderment of infinity. Since a circle isn’t a straight line, in Calculus, I guess we could imagine a circle is a composite of infinitely small straight lines that form a circle in an orderly connected directional position. Hence infinity’s involvement since we don’t really know curve that well and have to use our imagination of using a straight line with infinity to form a circle. I guess, through infinity, a constant of the unknown, we find changes in infinitely small intervals. (My interval meaning isn’t a mathematical one but merely a point!) — So I guess Calculus is about finding the meaning of the change!

What has Calculus got to do with a black hole? In my opinion, a ball rips through a massive tissue isn’t the same as a massive collapse or implosion of gravity. According to the book “Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of Universe” by Steven Strogatz, and here I quote:

Mathematically, circles embody change without change. A point moving around the circumference of a circle changes direction without ever changing its distance from a center. It’s a minimal form of change, a way to change and curve in the slightest way possible. And, of course, circles are symmetrical. If you rotate a circle about its center, it looks unchanged. That rotational symmetry may be why circles are so ubiquitous. Whenever some aspect of nature doesn’t care about direction, circles are bound to appear. Consider what happens when a raindrop hits a puddle: tiny ripples expand outward from the point of impact. Because they spread equally fast in all directions and because they started at a single point, the ripples have to be circles. Symmetry demands it.

Thus my thinking is that since symmetry demands it, whenever something in nature which doesn’t care about the direction like the implosion of gravity — in our case the black hole — a circle must be formed in space that is so black as a black hole! As I mentioned above, the core of the dead star was collapsed and imploded so hard by gravity thus I think it probably got ejected through the ripped 3D/4D spatial dimension. Like a hypersonic plane that got a massive hole, anything near the hole would get ejected out to the other side. Whatever on the other side must be so exotic and our super special black hole makes things so impossible that even light cannot escape the grasp of the black hole.

Is China Using The Opportunity of Electrifying Its Transportation Systems To Dominate 5G Market?

Why China is so intense in promoting electric cars over gasoline guzzled cars? I think there are more than a few incentives for China to promote electric cars over gasoline guzzled cars! The first incentive is so obvious that I don’t even need to talk about but I’m going to anyway.

Firstly, China has a very big pollution problem! Although China is no longer having the most polluted cities in the world since India is now taking over this top spot, nonetheless China is still seeing Chinese big, busied cities are being polluted by coal and gasoline heavy usages. The Chinese government has continually battled pollution by shutting down companies’ plants that rely on coals. Now, China pushes the pollution war ahead by promoting electric cars over gasoline cars. Meanwhile, China is heavily building more renewable energy sources such as wind farms, nuclear power plants, solar farms, and whatnot.

Secondly, China wants to control the auto industry market better since China got a bigger middle class than anyone else. This means China wants to see homegrown champions in car making and other automobile vehicles. This means China wants to have a stronger foothold in producing automobile vehicles, but the United States and Western countries are expert in making traditional automobile vehicles such as gasoline and diesel ones. Since China cannot compete directly against the West in making traditional vehicles, and so China is promoting electric vehicles to push homegrown automobile vehicle making companies to leapfrog the Western automobile companies in automobile technology through electric vehicles.

Thirdly, China knows that when there are more electric vehicles on the roads and highways, the transportation system needs to be upgraded to become more futuristic. For example, electric vehicles of the future could be driverless and so each of these vehicles needs to communicate with each other and also to the transportation system itself. This is why China is heavily pushing for 5G. With 5G technology through homegrown companies such as Huawei, China can push for electric, driverless vehicles and smart transportation systems without worrying about the feasibility of vehicle safety since 5G will speed up the data communication between the nodes/vehicles on smart, futuristic transportation systems.

I think China is using the 5G opportunity to push its transportation systems toward electric but also using the electric proliferation opportunity to fight pollution and dominating the telecom industry of tomorrow which is 5G. It’s a marriage that pushes the Chinese economy to higher ground in the coming months and years. This is why I think China is so protective of Huawei. Huawei is a leading 5G company in the world, and so I don’t think China will take it easy at all if anyone is going after this company. After all, China got a goal to meet — electrified Chinese transportation and telecom industries.

Nvidia’s April Fools’ Day Joke is Awesome!

Today is April first also known as April Fools’ Day, and so whatever news I’m reading I must regard it could be a joke! Could the new smart speaker with amazing AI known as R.O.N. be an April Fools’ Day joke? I think it’s highly that this new announcement from Nvidia is an April Fools’ Day joke!

If R.O.N. is an April Fools’ Day joke, then I think Nvidia should take their joke more seriously! How come? Although I’m no longer a prolific gamer, but I do have a few urges here and there to fire up a new game from time to time. I could totally see myself wanting to communicate with R.O.N. when I need to play a new game because R.O.N. could give me tips on how to master a new game. According to the video above, R.O.N. could even do a rage conversion which means if I’m angry R.O.N. could tell the gamer world that I’m happy! Anyhow, I think it’s a fantastical idea and the holographic touch is just ice on the cake! Nvidia should develop this joke into a real product!

Should Africa Rely On Automation To Leapfrog Cheap Labor Phase?

Africa got 1 billion plus people and yet the whole continent’s economy is only about the size of South Korea. This means the whole African continent is still very poor and needs to be developed a lot so the Africans can have some hope for a better future. Unfortunately, as cheap labor is moving out of China to China’s neighbors such as Vietnam, the whole world is now all the rage on how to rely on the automation of machines so even cheap labor cannot compete. If this is the case, I don’t think the Africans will have a chance of mobilizing their 1 billion plus people to industrialize the African continent.

So, the question is if Africans cannot rely on cheap labor to develop and industrialize the African continent, then what else could the Africans rely on to develop Africa? If Africans tries to rely on the aids of the Western countries, then Africans will never be able to develop their own industries that are necessary to pull the African continent out of poverty for good. Although the Chinese are building the infrastructures inside Africa to better the livelihood of the Africans, without a staple of strong industries the Africans will still face the problem of not being able to industrialize the African continent.

Although I don’t know much about Africa, in my humble opinion, Africans should try to go for automation themselves to leapfrog the cheap labor phase. This means Africans have to develop a very entrepreneurship mentality so they can come up with business models that need automation as a necessary ingredient for their business. Furthermore, instead of only relying on aids from the West and the infrastructures from China, Africans should demand the Chinese to teach them how to develop and incorporate Artificial Intelligence in their businesses. I think the machine learning and higher AI will definitely be able to help the Africans to automate the needs in their entrepreneurship businesses and leapfrog the cheap labor phase.
