That's not the worst part. The worst part is they can deny you service if you tick them off. When your whole life is based on rentals, your survival depends on keeping them happy (a kind of slavery).
Just like Netflix and Microsoft and Apple.
It is called subscription model and license to use.
But not own.
Leases are an attempt to create a subscription model for cars. I expect to see more financial innovations in the coming decades. We're already seeing them offer features for subscriptions, like internet and navigation connectivity. I think BMW tried a subscription for Apple Car Play.
Eventually, they will be subscription based. It's just a matter of how and when.
Yea, or we can have his head? He doesn't need it. We can get another head.
Why does he own a garage full of vintage cars, and exclusive models. If not cars, paintings, or houses, he only lives in one, it's too big. In fact, why does he have a bunch of clothes, he only wears the ones he is wearing?
Jettison him into the Sun. It demands it.
Lease cars are bullshit. Nobody needs them. They're depriving somebody else who owns a car. Taxi, public transport, haulage, tour guides. All so assholes can pay even more. Most are on holiday. The rest any subscription is worth more than ownership. Or it's another means of credit and debt, because they don't own that car it's mortgaged.
The most redundant argument, why do people own things. His idea, he owns everything, and they can just pay more for it. I mean seriously. What taxes do apple even pay? You pay it all for them. What did you get. Inflation. And another sillier model.
But it's the automation behind these machiaveillian constructs. His automated, or likewise factories, churning out cars he controls. On a grid he controls. You're just the dumb wage slave, paying more for it. Picture those robot cars, in all the recent films, has the cost decreased or increased. You're buying into a taxi fare. It doesn't want other drivers complicating things. Because it's all owned by a Corp, now imagine a grid full of them, until they're probably flying, or god forbid.
You're sooner talking about an upgrade on existing inflation forcing upgrades. Where they're pricing you out of ownership, no sooner are you buying into a subscription for that EV. They're a huge joke currently. Literal rubbish in every single way invented by comparison, apart from slightly better starting acceleration.
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have.
Hahaha that should be a poem.
Except I don't agree at all. What are they selling and why. If by selling it there is profit. So why not demand it. Blaming everybody they dont have it and then it really sells.
Ah look at how that works. Ve vill own your cars, and now you can pay even more to drive them. In fact ve will drive them for you, so you pay even more. Hahahaha. If you thought it was about anything else. I'm still driving, but you aren't you dumb sods.
No? But just try to convince.
BNW tried a subscription for a heated seat. Like WTF bro?
these people need to shut the fuck up and go away
Apparently this is part of the Fabian Society's plan for us. Privatize all land, peasants won't own any.
No he won't.
You may be but defo not him.
When was the last Elite you saw being burned?
