Namely, play any song, ever written.  And just by using voice commands.

To illustrate the point, Musk selects a few songs off the top of his head:

  • “Burn It Down” – Linkin Park
  • “Cheese Shop” – Monty Python

After the demo (which goes off without a hitch), Ms. Liu gives it a go:

  • “Home” – Phillip Phillips

No iPod, iPhone needed, as all data is transmitted and received over something called the “Internet.”  According to Musk, this is a featured Tesla needs to promote more, because “this is a feature you can’t do in any other car.”
