Just heard on the radio that Ford is getting into the e-scooter business.

I was in Nashville a few days ago, which is the first place I've seen them IRL. Only saw a few folks actually riding them. Mostly just a whole lot of them lying around the sidewalks everywhere. The downtown area was blanketed with the things. And they are real PITA for everyone to have to step over. I can't imagine any equipment treated in such manner can last long and from an admittedly limited amount of observation it didn't appear they could generate nearly the revenue necessary to cover investment and operating costs.

Good luck to Ford. This does not compel me to want to buy stock in the firm (although I've driven a Ford Ranger for 20 years and love it).
