No. It's dumb. I won't do it.

Tesla should just call it the Model E if they want to use that symbol.

It's especially dumb because that symbol already has a meaning.

Well they tried that but Ford didn't like it, right?

Yes, but Ford's claim seemed pretty weak. I suspect that they could have worked something out.

That page is pretty weak :P

I'd never even heard the triple bar referred to as a hamburger button. That's the first thing I've learned today, congratulations.

Apparently Tesla updated the Model 3 Reservations Agreement. It is now much shorter -- appears they took out the option to delay delivery (which apparently a lot of X res holders have done).

Also, here's Tesla's blog post on the reservations process:

So you put down a deposit in early 2016 for a car that you won't get until early 2018 at the earliest. That sounds super.

It's like a kickstarter campaign for a car. :/

Doing away with the deferral changes my calculus for sure. Hmmm....

I guess if you are a "gotta be the first to have the shiny new thing" type of person, it makes sense. And Tesla's market is rich people with lots of disposable income, for sure.

I'm genuinely interested in the Model Triple Bar / Hamburger Button. But not so much that I can't wait until the car is actually available to sit in and drive
