  1. Official: RIVIAN MEMBERSHIP Announced [1 year free trial beginning at day of delivery]

    Adding a new drive mode for members is not the same as removing drive modes for non-members.
  2. Part 2: We Drive the 2022 Rivian R1T Off-Road Across the Trans-America Trail - by MotorTrend

    While the battery recycling industry is still in its infancy, it does exist and attempts to reduce the primary pollutant that is generated by EVs. While we can argue over lithium mining, the amount mined for car batteries pales in comparison to the amounts mined for smartphones and laptops and...
  3. Part 2: We Drive the 2022 Rivian R1T Off-Road Across the Trans-America Trail - by MotorTrend

    That's why the first rule of overlanding is to do no harm. Any responsible overlander stays on approved trails, packs out anything they packed in, and generally does as much as possible to avoid disturbing nature any more than they have to. I don't think it's reasonable for us, as humans, not...
  4. Rivian's Tank Turn feature is delayed

    I am one of those, both demographically and that want the feature. Rivian will face no backlash from me if it doesn't come to fruition. There's a vast difference between 'we can't give this to you safely' and 'we decided to can this feature for no particular reason'. I don't need tank turn. I'd...
  5. Rivian's Tank Turn feature is delayed

    Why does it matter how many people will take them offroad? We each get to choose what we want to do with our expensive vehicle. Not offroading doesn't make you any less or more than someone that does take it offroad. I certainly don't look down on people with Defenders that treat them like mall...
  6. Offroading an EV

    It'd be pretty inane for Rivian to say: "Yea, so, since you were offroading we won't cover the rock puncture to the battery pack that we attested could sustain the entire truck being dropped on a square inch worth of shielding. We will, however, replace the broken spoon from your Snow Peak...
  7. Article: Tesla all but confirms Cybertruck production delay until 2022

    If I had a nickel for every 'I'll have my CT in the driveway long before your R1T'....
  8. Motor Trend Review: The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

    Agreed, getting to surfing from Seattle is closer than Tahoe is (was? too soon?) to the city. There may be more pre-order holders in the bay area, for sure. More people and another high-income area. Not denying that, just pointing out that volume shouldn't be an issue up here, I am positive...
  9. Motor Trend Review: The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

    The reason to pick Seattle is that there are a ton of pre-order holders up here. We obviously don't have complete numbers, but I know there's a bunch of us on these forums, at least. It's obvious from their previous communications that this area is a focus for them, again evidenced by the...
  10. Support Article Updates: Digital Purchasing, Alexa Info, and more

    Read the privacy policies and ToS for whatever service you connect. Many of them state what they do and do not collect, and how they are using that data. Also, since you're specifically referencing where and how you spend money, make sure you check the same info for everywhere you spend your...
  11. What $70K ICE car would you have gotten ?

    I already made that decision and got a Defender. It sounds like the supply shortages will continue into next year so I'm hopeful I don't eat too much depreciation when I trade it in for the R1T. For those saying Defender, I can attest that it's an incredible, and incredibly capable, vehicle. I...
  12. Canoo lifestyle vehicle spotted in the wild

    Caveats to my opinion: I've got pre-orders for all three vehicles, the lifestyle, the truck, and the MPDV. I also own stock. I was a bit disappointed when Canoo moved away from the idea of a subscription-based EV and as with @skyote the stock drop has not made me terribly happy. That said, I...
  13. Roll Call for the App - Android versus iOS

    There's likely 0% chance that they don't release both apps simultaneously. There's too much dominance amongst their combined marketshare, and they're too evenly matched to make one the preferred choice. Pretty much every major application release these days goes out for both simultaneously...
  14. Rivian tech job postings in Seattle

    I only know a handfull of people in the field up here (I have a history of being the first non-exec security hire and have always worked on smaller teams), but I'd bet good money that we have common connections. It definitely is a small world, though increasing in size. You're not alone there...
  15. Rivian tech job postings in Seattle

    All good, I wouldn't really care anyway. I do a lot of compliance work, but I'm no DPO 😆 You're right about the density of tech-related careers we've seen here. I suppose it's probably because tech is one of the few industries that pays the kinds of wages it takes to buy a Rivian when you're...
  16. Rivian tech job postings in Seattle

    By title I'm a senior security engineer. Operationally I'm a level or two above that, currently a direct report to a CISO. My purview is a bit of a mix of technical engineering work and management of an information security program for the organization. That's probably enough information to...
  17. Rivian tech job postings in Seattle

    Yea, the point I was making in one of my posts included thinking about equity. When it comes to startups (and even established companies) equity is pretty much par for the course for my position level in the industry. I have a very generous equity options offering at my current organization...
  18. Rivian tech job postings in Seattle

    Ouch. That is disappointing to hear. I am not sure they're going to get an early valuation of 100B, but maybe. Unless their compensation package outside of options was absolutely incredible, it would be tough to attract top talent (or morons like me lol) given the types of compensation available...
  19. Rivian tech job postings in Seattle

    That sounds about like what I'd expect, given the overall quality enterprise they appear to be building. Not meaning that in reference to your qualifications, just that I'm sure they're being very picky and I'm sure they're getting tons of applicants. That is reinforced for me given that I get...
