    Interesting how strongly they emphasize that AP is only for highway use. I know that many other Model S drivers
    beside myself use it in a much broader range of circumstances, mostly to good effect (though there are no shortage
    of people complaining about its imperfections on one-lane gravel roads in the rain ;)).

    Checking the Official Registry of Things...
    Nope. The Ministry of Culture ruled that "cruise control" was a perfectly adequate term and that "Smartspeed" would go the
    way of "New Coke" ;)

    The way I understand it is that "Smartspeed" is that feature that automatically sets the TACC speed based on the speed limit. So you just have to pull the stalk and go the speed limit (+5 mph or whatever your preference is). They changed the behavior of the stalk in 7.0 but now have come up with a fancy name... ;)

    Ah, no wonder it doesn't promise total elimination of friction and 100% energy conversion efficiency "next year"! ;)
