lol that anyone thinks elon will face any sort of justice

there is no such thing as justice and even if there was he's personally rich enough to gently caress off and disappear if he notices legal heat that he can't otherwise destroy by throwing other people's money at it

the entire tesla parts supply chain and employees base have been diverted to meet the 5k a month quotas

and as the lovely cars start getting called in tesla will find itself mysteriously far behind and in a negative news light, i hope

i'm so sad about this because even as little as two or three years ago i bought in to the musk glamour and even when it wore off i still thought the model 3 might be a good car that gets EVs more popularized

shows what I know

I thought this may be a joke but of course it's not.

some model S owners are being asked to pony up cash for the latest update, which unlocks extra capacity that was secretly built into their batteries. Yes, Tesla has invended car DLC.

The affected consumers are those who bought a Model S 70 in the last month or so. The 70kWh batteries in their cars are actually 75kWh batteries. They’ve just been software limited to only charge to 70kWh. For the low, low price of $3,000, Tesla will send an OTA update to your vehicle that unlocks the extra 5kWh of capacity. That’s equivalent to about 19 miles of additional driving. Future purchases of the car will be able to pay $3,250 for the same upgrade. 

is there anything to make them not remotely reduce the charge capacity

for the most part i ignore the likes of twitter, facebook and reddit - social media has always been poison and exists purely to datamine you

i figure you guys know as well as i do that poo poo sucks in engineering a lot of the time and nobody should have any illusions about how the sausage is made (the point of the 'pos)

to me that's one of the more fascinating parts about your posts

every software dev shop in existence has at least some smattering of inane nonsense going on where the fingers meet the keyboard; it's just that in this case it's attached to high speed heavy and poorly constructed machines

im still baffled at the reddit users that think this isnt a realistic hell of a dev setup because anyone thats worked in a large corporation knows even good environments have nightmares in them

i can only guess that means they themselves are the problem at their job

it's shocking how few of them realize that a lovely dev environment nightmare is a lot more meaningful when it's code that goes in a car, i don't care if the infotainment system is isolated or not
