Our local theater, "Movies at the Mall," is one of the eight theaters where
it is still playing. I think it's ironic the movie withered (total gross
still under $.7M) for the same reason the electric car did... lack of
interest.

Technical qualities don't a success make. I was using OS2 Warp when
Microsoft still offered Windows 3.1. It was so much better, but eventually I
gave up and switched to Windows 95 when the drivers I wanted for OS2 just
didn't appear. It wasn't a conspiracy; it was the market.

For perspective, the Prius isn't even the first of the modern production
hybrids - remember the Insight. What the Prius had was "the whole package."
I wouldn't have bought a 2-passenger coupe for $5K (now $9.3K, I guess). A
five passenger hybrid for $0K, with the appointment level Toyota so cannily
chose... absolutely.

At what cost to his carbon footprint?

Those people are crazy.  They don't know how to look at the big picture.  
They know only how to make an immediate statement.

If he truly cared, he wouldn't have spent the carbon footprint doing the
conversion.
