The Curious Capitalist

Justin Fox compares the car maker from silicon valley to one of the big three.

“I’m intrigued. Tesla Motors is a Silicon-Valley-based maker of snazzy electric cars. It’s run by a software engineer, natch. I’m not quite willing to follow Kedrosky to the optimistic conclusion that a new auto industry “is already emerging, in fits and starts, from the ashes of the old one.” (And even if it is, it’s not going to employ anywhere near as many people.) But still: pretty cool, no?”

Michael Arrington solves one of the most frustrating problems that we encounter daily: phone trees.

“I’ve memorized the keys you have to hit for United Airlines to get to an operator as fast as possible. With other companies I just keep saying “operator” while hitting # over and over again. Sometimes it works. With Bringo, none of that matters any more. You don’t even need to dial your phone. Just find the company you want to talk to in their directory, type in your phone number, and a couple of minutes later Bringo calls you and connects you to an operator at that company. I tried it with Air Canada and it worked absolutely perfectly.”
