    I guess after we get our brakes sorted out we’ll get a game. I voted for Galaga!

    How about the stopping distance game? I tap a virtual brake-pedal on the screen and it displays a random number between 130 and 180?

    winning supercharging credits would be amazing. HQ trivia style?

    Not really funny. It was poorly calibrated ABS, an issue that can - and is being - fixed in a matter of days by an OTA update. Which would already have been fixed had Consumer Reports shared their data with Tesla while they were doing testing rather than waiting to zing them with an "exposé".

    As for the actual thread at hand: I recommended Universal Paperclips. It's a simple web game (no complex interface needed) where you play an superintelligent AI that's been built to maximize production and sales of paperclips. All well and good, but it's basically Elon's nightmare come to life, as your designers apparently forgot to include any sort of moral code in the AI. So you start with simple things like building autoclippers and running ads, but start augmenting your intelligence, start getting options like "Release the Hypno-Drones!", etc, etc... and before too long you've mined up the entire Earth and turned it into paperclips. But that's okay because by then you've developed a space program....

    Basically, the game ends when you've converted the entire universe into paperclips.

    I replied to EM: ICE Crush (The Tesla version of Candy Crush)
    Also, I suggested he add a video player so we can watch vids off a USB drive while Supercharging or parked. The sound from an action movie would be AMAZING if they can do surround processing.

    I disagree about the 'zing'. This information was already out from a Car and Driver article in April:


    "The Tesla barely ekes out a win in this category with its stop from 70 mph, although we did notice a bizarre amount of variation in our test, which involves six consecutive panic stops—the third of these stops took an interminable 196 feet. "


    I'm fine with excusing Tesla for cosmetic or other superficial issues that arise when rushing to production. Issues that relate to safety are a big deal. Tesla deserves harsh criticism here.

    I've got another idea for a game:

    It's called dashcam.



    'Coming soon' per Elon almost 9 months ago.

    Car and Driver said that Tesla beat a BMW 3-series, and Tesla is supposed to take that as condemnation? Maybe they should have looked into the variability, but overall they were being praised. It was also one stop out of six, in one car, from one tester.

    Consumer reports identified concerns they had with the braking. Car and Driver did the same.

    As someone who owns and likes the car, I welcome all fair criticism. It only serves to keep pressure on Tesla to continue improving.

    I tend to agree with you. A bit disappointing that Tesla did not do sufficient testing of their own to identify this problem in advance, rather than let others point it out to them. Hopefully Tesla learned a lesson from this.

    That's backwards. The timeline is:

    1) Car and Driver did it. One tester. One car. Said it was great, but did get one inexplicably (very) bad run. Overall, though, they marked it as better than the BMW at braking.

    2) Consumer Reports tested it with 2 vehicles, lots of bad runs, and a very bad average.

    Encountering case #1 is not a problem. Encountering case #1, and then #2 is a problem. I do not fault Tesla in the least for not seeing #1 as a sign that they should not trust their internal testing. A single bad braking run could be from anything.

    It's still not clear how calibration became messed up between Tesla's internal testing and the vehicles that were rolling out the door. But apparently it did. What matters in my book is when it became clear that there actually was a problem, they went full out on determining what was going on and making a fix as soon as possible. I do not fault them in the least for interpreting Car and Driver's 1 bad braking run as meaning that all of their internal braking testing was wrong.

    How long do you think it would take your average manufacturer to fix a braking issue that crops up? And don't say "it wouldn't have happened" - big manufacturers go through recalls all the time.

    I want Skyrim. It's already been ported to everywhere else, so why not.

    I suggested Angry Birds, but with spaceX rockets. Same concept, choose angle, trajectory, force, etc.

    Contrast this behavior with GM and their ignition switch issue. Tesla For The Win!

    And as for a game: Doom (it's been ported everywhere anyway), but with an ICE level - all monsters replaced with ICE vehicles hogging Supercharger spots. Perfect game to play while waiting for your Supercharge to end...
