  1. “Tesla is recalling nearly 1.1 million cars in the US because the windows might close too fast and pinch people’s fingers.”

    Didn’t know that was a thing.

  2. Clickbait title (by the BBC).

    >Tesla chief executive Elon Musk criticised the use of the term “recall”, tweeting: “The terminology is outdated & inaccurate. This is a tiny over-the-air software update. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no injuries.”

    Elon Musk says crazy things sometimes, but this feels like it’s a relatively easy to solve problem without actually physically recalling the cars.

  3. “recall” here means “issue an over-the-air software update.”

    The government’s definition of a recall does not distinguish between “you have to take your car in for a fix” and “they have to press the button on the server that updates all the cars with new code.”

    That’s the government’s excuse. The press has none.
