Tesla in self-drive mode slams into police car in Orange County
  • I can't imagine a scenario where they'd be on FSD or AP pressing the accelerator AND looking at their phone.

    It's one thing to press it because it's hesitant or something but that would usually mean you've presses it because it's not doing what you want which means you were watching.

    Him admitting he was on his phone (if truthful) would mean he was pressing the accelerator thus overriding the input AND not paying attention.

    It's a stretch to far.

    If he lied about the phone to try and blame AP/FSD then that could make sense.

  • What movies & tv shows use Dolby Atmos really well?
  • Bodkin was a great show!

    I can't remember if this was Bodkin or another one, but pretty sure it was bodkin, there was a water scene where they had water coming from all around the room, and it really sounded like you were there water wise.

  • Ya, it's been that long and they've made a lot of cars since heh.

    I got mine in H1 2019 and it was HW 2.5, and sometime shortly after that HW3 came out. At the time I knew that was the situation but I wasn't concerned since they said they'd upgrade it.

    It took awhile after HW3 came out to be offered the upgrade though. By the time I was eligible, we were in the peak of early covid lockdowns and I wasn't traveling to the not so close service center for the upgrade.

    Eventually they did it via mobile service and I got it.

  • All cars since mid 2019 have the computer required for FSD.

    At this point that includes the majority of all Teslas ever sold. Somewhere between 750k and 800k of 6 million don't have the hardware. And of those 100-200k are upgradeable, maybe more but the research time isn't worth it.

    That being said, it still could have been AP and not FSD as the media gets it confused all the time.

  • Assuming something was on, I'm not even convinced it was FSD and it could have easily been AP.

    The media and police get that wrong more often than right, and the article isn't even specifically naming either one.

  • Wells Fargo fires more than a dozen employees for faking work using mouse jigglers and keyboard activity simulation
  • I mean, if you can do it in 2 hours I think it's pretty fair to want you to do something else, but if it's whole day thing and you finish an hour early you're probably not going to be effective in that last hour anyway.

    That's not the best time to start something completely new

  • G7 agrees on transfer of $50 billion in profits from frozen Russian assets to Ukraine
  • They probably can, but it's a further escalation in sanctions and would set a precedent that investments in another country aren't safe.

    By holding them, it also gives an incentive to end the war. Stop the war and get 300 billion back!

    Edit: someone else referred to it as the carrot (held money) and the stick (donated weapons). Carrot and stick is better than stick and stick. Better up to a point anyway...

  • Thoughts on range extenders for commuter cars?

    So both Rivian and Tesla have or say they are going to have range extenders for their trucks, but in both cases even if they are removable and rentable they are huge as trucks are huge. In teslas case it seems to be a permanent change though.

    What about commuter cars though?

    One thing we really need is cheaper in city commuters and those don't need a long range. That brings costs down and gets more people into EVs, but those will get relegated to 2nd cars in many cases.

    If those commuter cars could go to a shop and get an extender added in the trunk though that would make them much more capable of longer trips as well while keeping costs down.

    If the battery rental is similar or less to renting a car for the same period then people would opt to use their own car for the longer trip and all the personal comforts that provides.

    The batteries would be much smaller as well for a smaller vehicle.


    Why dont the financial services join the Tesla strike to end things?

    I've been following the strike and sympathy strike happening against Tesla and the similarities to what happened with Toys R Us, and I'm left wondering why the financial sector in Sweden hasn't stepped in by now?

    This has spread to multiple countries now, so it's not like this is day 1 of the strike.

    Do they consider themselves some sort of thermonuclear option and would rather not get involved unless necessary for some reason?

    If my understanding is right, they're what forced Toys R Us to sign an agreement since they couldn't effectively do anything like payroll anymore?

    It seems like the logical next step to me at this point unless I don't understand something about how the sympathy strikes work there?
