Whoops!
New Info: Tesla Crash

The model S crashed and killed the 40 year old driver who was watching Harry Potter on a laptop reportedly.

The crash was caused by the computer that was unable to see a passing 18 wheeler from the left as it crossed the path of the model S because the sun blocked its view.

What else can't the computer deal with that will cost lives

These things are so good you can watch a movie while the car is driving? Well, maybe not.

They said he was watching Harry Potter on a laptop but he was also avoiding the warnings from the computer however how much time do you have when you're approaching an intersection in a car or in this case and 18 wheeler passes in front of you ? they also said that Tesla recommends that you have your hands on the steering wheel and that you're paying attention to what's going on around you even though the car is driving itself .

It's not new data. The alleged fact that the driver was watching a movie is contained in previous news reports.

Do you have some obsessive 'need' to be 'that guy' that has his name show up on a thread, instead of simply sharing the information in a thread that already existed on the exact same topic?

Big Foot is correct. The whole point of a thread is to discuss a topic, not individual pieces therein.

Of course tracey already knew this . . .

I think he is addicted to seeing his name next to thread topics.

Most people, realizing they had posted something that really belonged in an ongoing thread, would close their thread down and make a post containing their "new" information in the previously started thread.

Not the left . . or the right, people. Maybe instead of defending what is essentially anti-forum involvement, you should correct it. I dare you . .
