No - that's one bet I will not make.

The environmental thing is a concern limited to a small segment of middle class women who never shopped much in Penneys anyway. This cohort is massively over-represented in the journalism sector.

The vast majority of girls out there don't give a damn. They want cheapest clothes known to humanity; they want them here and they want them now.

Exhibit A: the covid re-opening queue videos.

Many do, many don't. Haven't been in an office that has anything but laptops for 10+ years at this stage.

This would be my bet. The smaller car companies that don't have the capital to invest in the R&D for Electric cars and emissions compliant ICE cars will dwindle quickly. The likes of Mitsubishi, Fiat Chrysler, Subaru and even the likes of Renault and Nissan.

Could go either way, enormous potential and vision but serious issues well documented by the FT for years now. So Elon will either be the Henry Ford of the 21st Century or its John Delorean.

Tesla is hard to call. It’s still very much a tech bubble company that’s only beginning to deliver serious scale of product and a lot of big, established luxury and mainstream brands will be in that space in a big way in the next few years.

I notice Elon Musk's stock falling a bit- More people sort of realizing he's a complete benny. A lot of Tesla's hype is the cult of the CEO. Tesla revolutionized people's perception of the electric car but it might go either way.

It was IBM I was trying to think of. Forgot all about Gatway. I remember they had some shops in some shopping centres around Dublin too.

If you have a desktop you still need a laptop where as the laptop can do both jobs.

I was using both an iMac and MacBook at work for a while there and in the end while the iMac is lovely to work on its a nuisance when you are up and down from meetings and calls etc that you can’t just undock and have all your stuff open etc but instead have to open up what you want on the MacBook etc. Same going home if you want to do some work at home you have to go opening the stuff again and worrying about conflicts on documents of still open on the desktop etc.

A large high quality screen to connect you laptop to is the job really, also have the advantage of having a second screen automatically in this way as you have the laptop screen also.

the traditional car companies are playing catch up with TESLA , regardless of whether the brand is over hyped , it has completely changed the game and put the rest on the backfoot

I'd say the Tyrrell Corporation will be big in a few years time.

Why? Where I work we access the system using smart cards. If I want to work elsewhere or present from my PC I simply take the card with me to wherever I need to be, plug it into the card reader there and use the keyboard and mouse at that desk. Working from home I plug a card reader into a USB port on my desktop and work away as if I were in the office. A laptop isn't needed in the office and at home I could use one but I use the desktop out of personal preference.

Tesla are an odd one, defo more in the techie cult sphere- far as I know they've never made any serious money but yet are valued more than Toyota. The brand is valuable though and has establsihed itself as a (wealthy) household name with cachet.
