    Very strange. I was just looking at it, and when I hit the back button to get back to it, it just took me to the Model S page. Now we have some good stuff for the conspiracy theorists to chew on for the next day or so until v7 is released! ;)

    Likely they meant to release it after the press conference today, and not before, I expect it will re-appear in an hour

    They're in the middle of the press conference now.

    No, I'm pretty sure it's part of a plan to replace the entire dash display with a big analog clock. :)

    Interesting.... I wonder if they thought better of some of their wording that is causing much kerfuffle here?

    Looks like you won't be required to keep your hands on the wheel, it is just recommended.

    more likely they just didn't want it to come out until after the press conference is done, I bet it'll be back up in an hour

    And one summer student working on the user interface...

    Interesting find. I thought the instantaneous power gauge was nice, considering we lost the center gauge. The temp/battery and gear/clock do seem unusually close to each other in that first image, though.

    Edit: Also, PR folks set CC at 54 in a 60, that's who. :biggrin:

    Not everyone's obsessed with 5s and 10s. :tongue:

    I am, though. It frustrated me the other day when I tried to engage it at 65 and got 64, then did the quick tap up to supposedly get a 1mph increase and it locked to 66mph. :cursing:

    You're not saying this, but that's a pretty good explanation - the driver wanted 55 and got stuck with "close enough" and moved on. ;)

    While I won't go to the length that others have in their frustration, I really hope Tesla didn't remove the clock and outside temp from the main dashboard display... I mean seriously... We'll know for sure soon but if that's the case then maybe we can convince them to add it back with the next update... Seems sort of odd to me that Tesla would remove those things...

    Oh man, I don't like the look of that.

    The "old" image was almost livable. The "new" image is identical to all the leaked images.

    What the frak is going on Tesla?

    I don't think it implies a change in the actual product/firmware, but there's another visual difference I noticed:
    The new image doesn't give us the nice rendering of the curved road and the tilted wheel icon.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'll try to reserve judgement, but I call that a miss as well. I've got a web browser on the 17" that's had a favorite to a clock app for over 2 years now (thanks to TMC). ;)

    Here's a thought... Maybe when you select the clock widget it removes them from the bottom bar, but when you're not using the clock widget it shows the values in the bottom bar?
