[UPDATE: Sorry I couldn't update the show with Saturday's SEC settlement news after recording, as usual, on Friday night. I volunteered at Tesla Fremont all day Saturday and had no energy or time left to re-do the show by the time I got home. I'll analyze it and any follow-ups on next week's episode!]

Version 9 of Tesla's in-car software is in testers’ hands and should be in yours very soon. I’ve got all the details of this huge update, which includes even more than most of us thought it would! Plus: the SEC files a lawsuit against Elon Musk, lots of Tesla owners volunteer to help with new customer deliveries and orientations, and more!
