I don't mind so much that Tesla got called out for the referral program although the law's intent is to prevent consumer harm which seems highly unlikely IMO. But read toward the bottom... It's crystal clear this action was taken by a threatened competitor and consumer advocacy played no part in it whatsoever. 

"Brian Maas, president of the Sacramento-based California New Car Dealers Association, issued a statement, saying the CNCDA has been "asking the Department of Motor Vehicles to investigate Tesla's advertising policies for more than two years now. The CNCDA is pleased that action is finally being taken." 

#tesla   #teslamotors  
The state Department of Motor Vehicles recently sent a warning letter to Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, contending that the automaker's 'referral program' violates California laws.

Oh, the sleeze is strong with this one. I really liked the program. I wonder what they will do next. Is it illegal for alarm companies and phone companies to do the same? I have seen similar programs there without the ten referral limit.

I love discovering something new...even if it's old. I apparently never got the memo that sharing photos to G+ from an external site would finally publish a full size image. Early on at least, full size photos were only rendered if you uploaded the file to Google and shared from there.  This is super convenient, I never liked the thumbnail-ish image the share button created.

Well, it appears that you post a link and it opens in a tab (for me). So rather than publish your photo, they link back to it... they publish your link.

The following comment from the Chinese company Dragon in Dream would normally draw some significant ire in some PC sensitive circles...

"We thought that all Germans look like that. Bastian is also a very common name in Germany."

Bastian Schweinsteiger is considering legal action against a company making Nazi dolls that bear a striking resemblance to him.

I was an early convert to digital my first camera being the 2 MP Olympus C2000 with whopping 4 & 8 MB SmartMedia memory cards. The batteries would last no more than an hour or so and less with the LCD in use...oh those were the days! Mostly a Canon convert now so I can easily share lenses with my father and most of my friends. First Canon body was the 20D but now use 1D IV, new 5D III and the much smaller Fuji X100 as it can be with me at all times.

Sentimental favorite lens, the old Canon 28-70mm f/2.8 which I'll hold onto until they have something comparable with IS. Love primes but the only one I own at present is the 28mm 1.8.

I don't review often, but when I do it's usually really good or really bad. My review philosophy is set against expectations so I may provide 5 stars for both a dive burger joint as well as a fine dining establishment if both exceed expectations. Seems silly to me to give 3 stars for an amazing experience just because the place doesn't have cloth napkins.

Wonderful place to visit as a family. Lots of kid friendly activities and dining in a semi rural setting. Nice and comfortable but not too fancy. Within a 2 two hour drive from much of the greater Bay Area and they have Tesla changing stations. I wish their DVD selection for the kids was better but next time I'd just bring my own so not a big deal.

At last count, we've now taken 5 different cars to Reitmeir's so qualified finally to write a review. I don't love having to go there but do have complete trust in their abilities and honesty. Just about everyone we know who owns German take their cars there and they have a very loyal local following.

They have so much inventory that I rarely need to look elsewhere, consistently helpful service over more than a dozen visits. Once came in with an issue with a malfunctioning toilet that I couldn't diagnose. Snapped a picture with my phone of the inner tank and from that alone they were able to determine that someone previously had installed an incorrect part. Was out the door with the correct item within minutes with issue resolved.

The Fred Steak from Schaub's is a local institution. It's so go in fact that it surpasses the steaks at most of the local restaurants but you can only buy it here. The recipe is a secret and the copy cats aren't close. The steak is jet black and not very appealing, for me that's half the fun, shocking guests with such an unappetizing piece of meat. Any concerns they might have had disappear the moment they taste it however. Guests from out of town now request the Fred Steak when they visit because it is such a treat.

Want a play structure that you want to play in yourself? Barbara has you covered. Her custom play structures are amazing and sturdy enough to last a joke. They are every bit as nice in person as they are on the website and the purchasing process through installation is a breeze. They have everything from customizable template designs to full custom castles that are only limited by your imagination.

I started with the crab cakes as an appetizer with the Washimi-Hawaiian Kobe style flat iron steak as the entree. Both were great with the entree stealing the show, amazing flavor rivaling anything I've eaten in a restaurant and very near my favorite "Fred Steak" from Schaub's in Palo Alto. I don't often eat dessert but this too was very good. Honestly we underestimated the place due to the proximity to the pool area which gives it a casual atmosphere but the food was anything but.
