    The initial offerings were not what Musk had envisioned, and massive amounts of time and money were wasted on designs that did not meet the expectations or vision.

Make a master touchscreen to handle the majority of the cars functions, this was years before the iPad was released. The touch screen had to be designed from scratch and capable of withstanding the rigors of the being part of an automobile.

Due to the fact that Gregor is always working and rarely stops, he becomes isolated because of…

    Bartleby the Scrivener by Herman Melville and The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka are seemingly unrelated literary pieces upon first consideration. Delving deeper into the nature of the two protagonists, common themes become more apparent. These short stories convey themes of personal sacrifice, living a walled-in existence, and subscribing to the endless cycle of work with no personal gain.

    The setting is usually a major part of the meaning of stories since it usually represents a certain idea or strengthens one presented by a character. In Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, the setting is an integral part of the novel because it helps strengthen and represent certain ideas, such as isolation, family life, and capitalism. A major portion of the book occurs in Gregor’s room. It is therefore only natural that the room represents a theme that is present in the novel. Gregor’s room…

    The Metamorphosis is probably the best-known novella written by German-Jewish author Franz Kafka. There is a large focus placed on the metamorphosis of Kafka’s central character, Gregory Samsa, into a monstrous vermin. However, Gregory’s reality is insignificantly changed in spite of his drastic physical change. Thus, Gregory’s new insect state is not the main transformation of the novella.

    In the beginning of the story Gregor is described as “squirming” (3) and “shocked to hear his own voice,” (5) which resembles his struggle of finding out who he is because he has turned into what family/society wants him to be. The fact that he is “shocked to hear his own voice” justifies that Gregor is not only confused on he has become, but it exposes the reality that Gregor never voices his concerns on being someone he isn’t. It startles him to realize that he is a prisoner within his own…
