I often imagine a crablike or bigdog-like machine that can roam within a perimeter, Roomba style, but outdoors, in possibly poor weather, gathering or flagging anything unnatural, for the purpose of gathering litter from roadsides, around buildings, etc. A beach version would have some sand-sifting capability.

I don't know why GV is not better integrated into my phone. My choices in GV settings are to use GV for ALL calls, NO calls, or PROMPT when calling. If you use PROMPT when calling, you are then asked, on a per call basis, if you wish to make the call with GV or not. But there's no "Remember this choice for this contact" checkbox, and to me it's an incredibly lame oversight. It is for this reason alone that I have GV set to NO calls, and only use GV for received voicemails. I used to use the GV Chrome extension to send text messages, but instead I bought BrowserTexting (a combination of an Android app and Chrome extension) to see and send SMS from my computer.

It's great for Tesla owners that SuperChargers will be blanketing the nation, but I have a LEAF and wonder if, when SuperChargers start appearing near me, will I be able to charge there - paying for it as I would with Blink or any other EV charging network.
I see mixed news on this. My LEAF SV has two charging receptacles: a standard SAE J1772-2009 connector for level 1 and 2 charging (120/220 volts AC) and a JARI high-voltage DC connector designed by TEPCO for DC fast charging (480 volts DC 125 amps) using the CHAdeMO protocol.
The Tesla S uses a proprietary connector. The connectors are not the issue, as they can be added quite trivially.
It is Tesla's business decision to either permit or forbid competing vehicles to be customers of their charging facilities. Does anyone know of "other" vehicles can or will be able to use the Tesla facilities?
