Tesla adapting their supercharger strategy for big cities! Hope they do this everywhere. Superchargers are the most fun way to fill up. The best part is the people you meet at the chargers.
 
Tesla makes things easier for UK Model S owners with free charging for life
Tesla has opened new Supercharger locations in London and Birmingham, part of a rapid network expansion that will soon allow UK Model S owners to drive anywhere in the country and charge for free, for life.

The first new Supercharging site is located at Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill, on Portman Square. The Supercharger can be accessed in the hotel car park, which will be free to Model S owners for one hour while charging. With valet parking available, it is the first Supercharger in central London and represents the first step in Tesla’s inner-city charging strategy for the UK. Such centrally located Superchargers will allow customers who don’t have access to off-street parking or personal garages to easily find charging options close to home or work. 

The second Supercharging site is at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham, on Bridge Street. As well as allowing Model S owners to charge upon arrival in Birmingham, the site enables electric travel to the Midlands and beyond.

These new Supercharger locations not only energise an important route between the capital and the UK’s second city, but they also enable Model S drivers to travel long distances from the Midlands to Manchester and London, and across to France, Germany, and other European countries for free.

We did a hangout and talked a bit about HealthCare.gov. Check it out!
 
One of the cooler things I did this week...Cloud Office Hours Hangout with Rackspace CTO, John Engates. He talked about his experience advising the White House on healthcare.gov. Spoiler Alert - Testing (and more testing) is the key to success with any website.

Very interesting: +Adobe is trying to convert the subscription skeptics with $10-per-month +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and +Adobe Photoshop offer, good only for owners of Photoshop CS3 or later who sign up this year. That's a good price compared to the Photoshop-alone price, which is $10 for the first year and $20 after that, or the full Creative Cloud, which is $50 a month but overkill for people who don't need video editing, page layout, Web design, and other tools.

I still expect the subscription-haters are gonna hate it, though, because guess what? It's still a subscription and it'll stop working when they stop paying. For those happy with just Lightroom, it costs $150 and will continue to be available as a perpetual-license purchase.
Trying to win over customers disgruntled with its move to subscriptions, Adobe packages its top imaging software for less money than just Photoshop. But the deal expires in 2013. Read this article by Stephen Shankland on CNET News.
