I was just randomly on Facebook, when I noticed one of the Tesla Owners posted a picture (above) that showed that Tesla now offers Trial Periods for Autopilot for owners that have the hardware, but have not paid for the software. This may seem like something small, however it’s huge. Traditional cars wouldn’t have this capability as you’d either have to drive the car in to the dealership to get the update flashed onto your car, or they don’t usually include hardware if you haven’t paid for it. This is such a clever way for Tesla to Upsell customers after the fact if they opted out, and creates easy revenue. It also reduces the amount of hardware configurations by having all cars standard with the hardware. This makes it much easier for customers to change their mind down the road. Every day there is something new that wows me about Tesla, and today this is it.
Hot on the heels of 10.6.5 iTunes 10.1 has been released today. It was rumored on the interwebs that this update along with the iOS 4.2 (which has not been released yet) would hit the web shortly after 10.6.5. Soon all iPad owners will be rejoice as they can then multitask!
As described in the picture above, this update to iTunes lets you stream video using Airplay on the new (black) Apple TV, sync with iOS devices running 4.2, and bug fixes. I predict 4.2 will be released this weekend or on Monday maximum since it has already been in Golden Master for a while now.
As usual thanks to Engadget for tipping me off. Today Apple released 10.6.5 on Software Update. No link to the Delta or Combo update dmgs yet, once I have found them I shall link to them. For those who don’t know what Delta and Combo mean, Delta means you must have 10.6.4 to install the update and comes in at a significant less file size than the Combo update. The Combo update on the other hand allows you to install it on any version of 10.6, so basically 10.6-10.6.4 or in computer geek terms 10.6.x. Anyways fire up software update from the top left of your Mac on the Apple menu. The bugfixes can be seen in the image above, Enjoy!
