Tesla owners are the QA.

$10,000, the same price as the software itself to the first person who could name "another commercial product from a Fortune 500 company that has a critical malfunction every 8 minutes.

It wasn't that bad. I mean it was bad it probably tanked every hour and required a reinstall every month but not 8 minutes.

So, Tesla owners can download and use beta software in their cars for full self-driving mode?

Wish people would quit pretending that Musk is an engineer or anything other than the $$$ and face of any of his companies. He is no more of an inventor than Steve Jobs was, but the moron US celebrity worship culture would rather heap praise on the face of a company than the actual people doing the work.

Also, this is beyond stupid to 1) call is full-self driving giving the amateur morons who use it a false sense of security 2) releasing it to the general public as the crash test dummies

It's total, as in across all computers with said software installed. You don't think every Tesla has a critical error every 8 minutes do you? It's just because there are soo many on the road. If you were to include human drivers the statistic would be even shorter, and if you include all brands of vehicles the result would be measured in nanoseconds.

It's ultimately a bullshiat statistic intended to scare people. It's like someone in their marketing department just read a book on "how to lie with statistics" and found a solid way to apply it to their current job.

One of the more hilarious videos I've seen was a car with some sort of automated driving software in it, it might not have even have been a Tesla, freak the fark out because of the specific pay load a truck in front of it was carrying.

The truck was carrying a load of traffic lights.

This seriously confused the car, which wasn't even in automated mode.  Didn't stop it from splashing dozens of "ghost" traffic lights symbols all over the nav screen.

That would be a massive way to troll. Get a semi trailer and paint the back to look like open road and then pull in front of a Tesla and slow down to see how it reacts.

I work in at Tesla. So I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies. Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about. But trust me.... You don't. I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about. This is how bad info gets passed around. If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do. Cuz some Farkers belive anything they hear.

$12,000 for a product that does not exist, yet.  The existing Tesla product is still Level 2.

BMW is concerned because the cheapest Model 3 can kick ass on their top of the line car that costs over triple.

If I have one car on the road and it has an critical error every 8 minutes, that's one shiatty car. If you have 1,000,000+ cars on the road and every 8 minutes you have a critical error, it's a far less common occurance. Both examples could be stated as having a critical error every 8 minutes, and without context it's effectively lying about a products reliability even though the statements are technically true.

Say what you will about the guy, but he does take an active role in engineering...especially at SpaceX. 

Also, are you familiar with what other companies are calling their driving assistance features? Secondly, Tesla hasn't released FSD beta to "the public," you have to meet certain criteria. Not saying the criteria isn't flawed, but please don't make it sound like just anyone has access.

Not sure you need to be so salty about things that clearly don't affect you in any way.

Don't know what took so long for the Fark morons to come and try to suckle Musk's balls.

You know that, how? You don't know shiat about me or my family, moron.

Also, other manufacturers call their items Driver ASSISTANCE features. If Teslas are all so limited, why are there so many videos, crashes, fires, and deaths around their horrible tech?

Teslas are just shiat and fanbois have their underwear in a bunch about it. Cry moar.

Jealousy is an ugly thing. Calling out your ignorance doesn't mean I'm defending Musk, the dude does not need me to do so. 

Again, unless Musk slept with your wife you're level of saltiness (obsession?) is irrational, and you should find a way to come to terms with it.

Tesla owners who have already paid for it and have demonstrated via in-car data collection that they are as safe and attentive as possible can download and use the beta software.  It's a pretty tiny portion of Tesla owners.
