The Hubbert Theory And The North Dakota Experience -- February 1, 2015

Yesterday I had fun with a long piece on peak oil.

North Dakota and the Hubbert Theory at the end of the 20th century.

This is a more current update.
Speaking Of Batteries

In anticipation of the release of the Apple Watch there has been a lot of discussion about how often the Apple Watch will need re-charging / how long a full charge will last.

It turns out that Tesla, the battery company that markets itself as a car company, has an app for the Apple Watch. A driver will be able to monitor the inside environment of the Tesla and will be able to adjust temperature settings using her Apple Watch, as seen at this article at Macrumors.

Someone noted something very interesting about the photograph of the Tesla application on the Apple Watch.

If you look closely, you will see that the Tesla Model S Sedan is 89% fully charged ... and it will only be another 2 hours and 24 minutes before it reaches full charge.

And folks are already complaining about how often one needs to charge an Apple Watch. LOL. 

By the way, I've always wanted to set the temperature of my car with my watch: it's an incredible pain to move the little tabs to the right or the left on the dashboard to set the temperature.

My hunch is that Honda will respond by putting the controls on the steering wheel, just like they have done with radio controls. Nothing like competition to make things better.
