Was just now watching this presentation from Intel Developer Forum 2015 about the upcoming 5G networking standard:
http://intelstudios.edgesuite.net/idf/2015/sf/megasession/150819_aesr/index.html

There is a Model S onstage the entire hour and used as a backdrop for the speakers. It also gets a few minutes about being an always connected device, and I'm still listening to the rest of the video.


Another example of Model S working it's way into our culture.

(Full Disclosure - I work for Intel and own/drive a Tesla; the opinions are all mine)

Seems a little odd that a car that's connected via 3G would be used as a backdrop for a 5G service.

But then maybe they're worked a deal with Tesla for 5G? (We can always hope.)

I heard there will be an upgrade for internet connection for the Model S (being that even Chevy has 4G built in). It is also in the works for our current Model S to be retrofitted with an upgrade module to push it to 4G also. Our cars are basically a mobile computer, thus a module; much like the ones on our laptop can be swapped out and upgraded.

Too bad I didn't go to this years IDF.
