A Future of In-App Purchases

If this was not becoming so common from in-app purchases on phones, in games, and now in cars, it might be considered a real problem (/sarcasm)

The ‘purchase’ mechanism is almost funny, but not at all.

If you double click the shift panel twice and accidentally engage the auto-pilot in Model 3, @Tesla will automatically charge you $14,100 if you didn’t previously purchase auto-pilot. No password prompt. No CC challenge. Just $14K on the CC on file

As more products release more features in software that are enabled/disabled depending on what has been paid, this will probably become more common.

There are obviously issues needing to be addressed!


“Google’s Director of Product Management, Dominic Preuss, took to Twitter outraged that he had been charged more than US$14,000 (AU$19,000) after his father-in-law borrowed his car and accidentally signed up for Tesla’s advanced driver aids

Lucky he works for Tesla. Imagine what they might charge to the public.

On a more positive note, it was only $14,000.

Better than having both your Tesla and your house burn down.

Perhaps Musk will include 911 on auto dial as an upgrade.
