The modern automotive industry is notoriously high stakes and competitive- traits that were amplified during the recent era of historic industry restructuring. Though many companies emerged from this turbulent period leaner, more efficient, and attuned to the realities of demand, much work remains to shore up key weaknesses. Amidst this backdrop, automotive companies continue to pour billions into developing products, building new factories, and researching new technologies – all for increasingly uncertain returns. These returns are even more unpredictable in the current global market with new entrants, new powertrain technologies, and fluctuations in oil prices. Vehicle Manufacturers (VMs) and suppliers can no longer rely on domestic demand, political backstops, or mature markets to deliver the required returns on investments. But in order to function properly TaaS concept would require relocation of huge number of citizens to big cities. Many people would have to abandon and disregard their village property. That would make more megalopolises and we all know that megalopolis is by definition too complex and therefore, at the end, the return is no more diminishing but negative.
I might have to try this. I, too, have wide feet and they are short. All my life I have worn ugly shoes. That is going out the window.

To put it simply, if one can achieve 100 percent service absorption, then all of the dealership’s fixed expenses are paid for by the service and parts departments, which means that the sales department is producing net profit on the very first unit it sells. For example, if your sales gross profit is $4,000, your sales commission is $1,000, and your floor plan interest is $500, then you have $1,500 in variable expenses to deduct from gross profit, which leaves you with a net profit of $2,500.
Information kiosk that was once considered a product only reserved for high end museums, however, installing an information kiosk with easy to use features for displaying information on a touch screen monitor is no more considered a high end product that can be installed only in selected places. Kiosks are common place in society and are being installed and utilised in more and more locations such as educational institutions, public locations and even businesses.
That’s funny how an event binds you to a place, even if its just a patch of gravel by the road. There’s a road on the way up into the mountains that we ran into a street sweeper of all things when I was just a kid. Now, thirty odd years later I still think of that every time we go driving by. Actually, music does that to me to places too, places and times. Anyway, thanks for the comment. You’re very kind.
In time, of course, the worldwide market for computers has exploded to near saturation levels in 2011. In addition to large computers for institutions, there are personal computers, laptops, notebooks and mobile phones with computer capabilities numbering in the hundreds of millions.
