Re: Why is the LEAF pulling away from the Volt?

Languages do change over time. Seeing this one devolve into gibberish over a few years, because people can't be bothered to proofread what their phones write for them, (and because news organizations decided that the Perpetual Present tense is more profitable) is quite a bit more depressing than having it happen over a hundred years or so.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I accept the claim that I am one of the chief violators. I do look at what my phone is doing but it doesn't always stay the same. Frequently it will type the correct words only to change them later based on an algorithm that uses the context of what is said later to adjust. The other issue is my text is sized to where I can only see 2 lines of roughly 25? characters so "after" edits are frequently not seen. My phone also creates phrases and words that make no sense. Sometimes, I wonder if what it wrote is a real word.

I love my Pixel but it doesn't do nearly as good of job in translation than my Samsungs did. I am considering switching back but will wait to see what Pixel 4 offers first.

One would think you must be referring to this post thread, rather than to the state of the English language, given how off topic all this is...

IEVS:
What’s Better: A Fully Electric Car Or A Plug-In Hybrid EV?
https://insideevs.com/deep-dive-future-plug-in-hybrid-evs/

I consider the title misleading, as it's a discussion by the author (who's owned both) of the advantages and disadvantages of each over the near and mid-term future. Anyone who's been reading this topic for a while won't be surprised that, while I may quibble a bit on the specifics, I agree with the author's general conclusions almost entirely,
Guy [I have lots of experience designing/selling off-grid AE systems, some using EVs but don't own one. Local trips are by foot, bike and/or rapid transit].

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.
