Economics for Tech People — Demand (Part 1)

  • So, we are going to use the stack() function to do a really neat job of wrangling our data from its current form in 10 different columns to a much smaller and more ggplot appropriate form where price and quantity data is labeled by Qd_# in 2 small columns of glory.
  • Visualizing our data can be done with a little help from ggplot() by just plotting the sum of our quantities demanded for each price.
  • When I look at this, I notice instantly that in certain ranges of this market demand curve that a change in price is not going to yield the same change in quantity demanded by the market at every point on the curve because it is not linear [2].
  • Elasticity of demand is simply the idea of seeing how the combination of prices and quantities change between two points on a curve [2].

Watch a VW ID.3 get smashed up in the name of safety

  • When electric cars started to become popular many people were concerned about the safety of driving whilst sat atop high-voltage batteries.
  • It’s also worth noting that while EVs might contain lots of potentially dangerous electronics, there are safety systems in place to prevent these circuits from causing a danger to people.
  • All high voltage lines are sheathed in bright orange cable housing too.
  • Check out this video from car safety testers Euro NCAP as they smash a Volkswagen ID.3 into all manner of objects to put it to the test.
  • It’s a pretty good example of how a well-designed car, by today’s standards, performs in standard crash testing.
  • Electric vehicles present designers and safety engineers with new opportunities as well.
  • That is why Polestar combines electric driving with cutting-edge design and thrilling performance.

What Republican internal polling can actually tell us

  • An examination of publicly released internal Republican and conservative group polling reveals they're also showing Trump clearly underperforming his 2016 showing.
  • I looked at more than a dozen of these partisan polls released to the public from House and Senate races since the major party conventions in August.
  • That's why it was amazing to find that on average, Trump was doing 5 points worse than he did in 2016 in the states and districts in released Republican and conservative polls.
  • This meshes with what was previously reported by Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political Report -- mainly, that internal polls by both sides that have not been released are even worse for Trump than the internals that are being put out by conservatives and Republicans.
  • Since the conventions, Democratic candidates and groups trying to get them elected have put out about 75% of the House internal polls released by either side.

Acer announces several new Intel-powered laptop lines

  • Notable new or refreshed products include the Swift, Aspire, and Spin general-purpose laptop lines and the high-end ConceptD 7 and Porsche Design laptops.
  • Acer tends to lump an enormous array of designs and processors under the same overarching product line without changing the branding name—for instance, we counted 29 separate models of Aspire 5 with buy links on Acer's own site and 12 models of Swift 3.
  • The new system features Intel 11th-gen processors and Iris Xe integrated graphics, with optional Nvidia discrete MX350 GPUs. The MX350 is unlikely to be a good idea for systems with higher-end Core i7 CPUs, since Iris Xe in those higher-end CPUs already outperforms the MX350 on benchmarks such as 3DMark Time Spy—but it might come in handier on lower-end Intel CPUs with fewer graphics Execution Units (EUs) available.
