Tesla has a nice range calculator with temperature estimate, surprising:

Also without the very heavy inefficient internal combustion engine and transmission you save weight for the battery, plus way more cargo space than a hybrid.

Taku explains why starting a company is something you should only do when you have to not when you want to.

Missing a comma in there.

@Burning Bush

Automated cars aren't just about safety, you could read a book or do other things while your car drives. And we could improve traffic flow in general, time to destination etc.

What amazes me about this result is the leniency on seatbelt usage in Japan and yet a low death toll, probably some missing data here.

Japan has one of the lowest homicide rates of any country in the world, try writing up the life story of all the 10,000+ people murdered in the USA each year.

JT would have to write 30 of these articles a day!

@zichi, @toshiko It says 'tattoos which might scare other people'... to be defined at some later date. Probably means yak style full color back tatoos et al not your average tramp stamp or youthful indiscretion: http://www.city.zushi.kanagawa.jp/syokan/keizai/umi/p05594.html

From visits last year I would say that in general the US base people were better behaved than the out of town jp kids though.
