re: Google Glass Meets Tesla Model S
IGm guessing they intend these features such as honking the
horn to work in the same way that the honk horn/alarm button on most remote
controls work. I think itGs more of a convenience feature than anything else,
being able to find your car when you need to, never having to spend time out of
your day looking for your car, having hands free access to features, turning on
your car remotely to cool/heat it up, and other such features. A lot of the
features are helpful features that are readily available in many cars, but if
glass catches on, having this ability for most cars would be nice.

re: Google Glass Meets Tesla Model S
I'm inclined to agree, though the ability to turn off and turn on charging remotely (to take advantage of lower evening energy rates) would on its own be enough to convince me to use the app, if I had a Tesla.

re: Google Glass Meets Tesla Model S
I can understand the use of Glass and Tesla on some level - it is convenient to be able to locate the car and open the trunk verbally, etc., but I'm not sure how useful it is to honk the car's horn with Glass and use it for other in-car functions. Isn't it faster to do it the "old fashioned" way?
