    Funny! What, no color-matched key fob?! Was that an urban legend?! :)

    GeorgeB told me back @ the Westchester opening that all keys would be black. You can still choose colors for your HPWC though (so far I've only seen red, black and white)

    I don't think I've seen the Google Maps on the speedo display until this video (@ about 2:05)

    I don't know who any of the Tesla luminaries are, but this video was a trip. LMAO at the on-ramp/merge thing they kept doing.

    This guy is a legend in classic Mac development. In the old days, he used to write a column in "Develop" with Bruce Leak called Kon and Bal's Puzzle Page. In it, they dissected some very obscure problems in the form of a conversation. Loved it. Good poker player too.

    Haha... that is a fun vid. From my ride on Sunday, I can sympathize with the passenger trying to hold his camera.

    Really cool video: "A boy with his toy"

    No that I'd do anything different as soon as I receive mine!

    Wow, that looks great. I love the way the map just flows seemingly behind the speedo instead of just ending in a rough box where the border of that section ends. Very nice touch.

    I was hoping the screen would offer that function and I agree, it looks well done.

    I LOVE this video and LOVE that Tesla shows a sense of humor with the volume to 11. I can't wait to play some Spinal Tap in my new S!!!

    Nice video!
    I was laughing pretty hard in my office when the camera flew out of the cameraman's hands during acceleration and he gave off a few grunts.
