This months discussion in the world on Electric Vehicles:
This is the one thing that is failing in the move from fossil fuel to Electric Vehicles. Since 2017 I have driven an EV and I have to say that whilst manufacturers now produce a wide range of electric vehicles the essential charging structure has failed to keep pace and is now causing many motorist problems. The below video shows one owners experience testing the charging infrastructure in his close neighbourhood and it is not a happy tale.
Tesla are nearing mass production of the lorry that could change the face of HGV driving.
This is scary stuff. In a recent blog post I wrote about Artificial Intelligence and my Brother recently sent a link to the below video on Youtube. Experts predict 50 % jobs transformed in the next 3 years. Elon Musk a co founder of one brand of AI recently tweeted “ChatGPT is scarily good, we are not far from dangerously strong AI”. The message is that AI is devloping so fast it could easily take over from Humans – as I say scary stuff.
January Reading List. This months downloads from Amazon. Below are three Kindle books I downloaded last month. The first is a detailed account of one tank regiment and its progress from the start of World War II as a cavalry unit equipped with horses and its transition to a mechanised tank regiment and its story from the desert to D Day landings to the end of WWII.
Brothers in Arms: One Legendary Tank Regiment’s Bloody War from D-Day to VE-Day.
The Traitors Story is pure fiction and was chosen as a change from the historical and wartime fiction novels I have been reading of late. It was an OK read, nothing exceptional but I did not abandon it and it kept my attention to the end.
The Traitor’s Story
Renegades: Hitler’s Englishmen.
Not yet finished reading this but I am back to historical war novels reading this time about Lord Haw Haw and Mosely during World War II. So far very informative about the back ground into these individual and the reasons they chose to betray their country in the way they did.
TV Programmes worth watching
I thought I would give a mention to the BBC documentary series “The Warship: Tour of Duty”. Fascinating coverage of our new Aircraft Carrier Queen Elizabeth. Worth a watch on the Iplayer ….
So there is a short summary of What Has Peaked My Interest During January 2023. Let me know your thoughts.
