    In a news conference Thursday, CEO Elon Musk revealed that a software update planned for later this year will allow an equipped Model S or Model X to drive short distances by itself on private property, as well as offer automatic steering features.

    "You will be able to hit the 'Summon' button on your phone, and the car will find you," Musk told reporters in a conference call Thursday. "You can press it again and the car will put itself to bed in the garage, and close the garage door."

    Just starting to learn about Elon. The government regulations and requirements for a proper revamp of the public energy grid are snarling one of the most important infrastructure projects of our time.

    Elon is going to get it started by networking his supercharger stations to renewable energy sources.

    He is one of the most important people in the world today.

    He also announced a way to alleviate range anxiety today and a nationwide routing scheme thru the supercharger network. Nice to see folks making good on their promises for a change.

    We should pay him $10 billion to run our country, we would get our money's worth.

    It is too bad there aren't more Elon Musks out there.

    I love this guy's moxie.

    Elton Musk is Elon's lesser known but highly flamboyant pianist brother.

    Elon Musk is quite a force of nature. For even bigger thinking, check out his thoughts on Mars colonization.

    Elvin Musk is pretty great too but I just can't get past that high-pitched chipmunk voice of his...

    Didn't Elton Musk used to collaborate with Bernie Troup, Bobby's younger brother? "Get your kicks on Yellowbrick 66"?

    From the guy who says driving will someday be illegal? I don't think so.

    Have you seen the way some people are driving these days? I counted 6 assholes texting while driving erratically...and that was just in a 2 mile stretch through Beverly Hills...

    I think he meant Alvin Chipmusk...Elvin was a badass with the Butterfield Blues Band before he wrote that song...and he has a pretty gravelly voice, which is why he asked Mickey Thomas to sing it with that pretty boy voice of his...
