Somebody mod this guy up. He's right. It's a critical distinction.

You know he did both of those things, right? RTFM
> and the fact they offered to pay damages?
Given the huge amount of bad press Tesla got from the three earlier debris fires, I can totally understand why they would bend over backwards to make this guy (and hopefully the press) happy. It doesn't necessarily mean they're trying to cover something up.
> Most 15A receptacles are rated for 20A pass-through, so they should be perfectly fine to use on a 20A line.
Really? Then why, pray tell, are they called 15A receptacles?
The API is not intended for use by third parties so really the only valid criticism here is "Tesla does not have a 3rd party API".
Agreed. The only way to exploit this security issue is if you give your login credentials to an unauthorized website using a private API. If you do that, shame on you!
There have been multiple real-world frontal offset crashes with the Tesla Model S already. Looking those up and photos from them show much the same results as with the other crash tests did. Which is to say, the car performed flawlessly and the occupants walked away unharmed. I suspect when IIHS results are performed it will score equally as well.
Do these same analysis factor in the emissions caused by the mining of oil, refining it and trucking it to the gas stations? Not usually... That's not fair to count emissions from electricity generation but then only compare it to tailpipe emissions of gasoline.
The summary and title are misleading. If you read the article, the pictures clearly shows "Assembled in USA". My first thought when I saw "Assembled in America" was that Foxconn has facilities in Brazil now - so perhaps it was really "Assembled in South America". But, no, it really is in the USA. Very cool, Apple.
The android logo on an iPhone story? Really?!?!

GWT has really made me enjoy client side be programming again and enabled us to do some VERY sophisticated web apps. As for the GUI widgets and layout abilities, yes, they are a little weak. But throw in a professional widget library like ExtGWT (aka GXT) from Sencha and you're golden - it's a GWT implementation of their very popular ExtJS library.
The Mac application is at a wrong place, it is at simple as that. The

I get 179 on my system...
Not to mention they're not exactly affordable...
With the exception of your 200+ range, the Nissan LEAF satisfies the rest of your requirements (it's only got a 100 mile range). It's a perfect "around-town" car for me, which is why I've got one on order. It should be delivered by December. I can't wait.
Bah, this is blown out of proportion a little bit. The UDID, by itself, tells a developer nothing about YOU. Its use is documented and encouraged by Apple for tracking user devices (which TFA admits). Now sure, if I were to also grab your address book I can tie that to your UDID, but it's my grabbing your address book that's the problem, not the UDID. I suppose if Apple wanted to make this more secure they could make the API automatically hash the UDID with your Application ID (also unique) and return that instead. You would still be able to use it for the same purposes as UDID was intended for, but NOT between apps.
Lockheed Martin has already launched

WTF, they launched a Cal Poly team? Where's the copy editors when you need them?
