Lucas reading Max The Talisman at the end of the finale gives us a pretty good idea of what we can expect from Max in Season 5
understood, but I have two points:
- "recall" is an outdated term and the NHTSA needs to update it to be more reflective of the reality of modern automobiles, and
- News outlets can still present the information regarding it being a recall accurately in the body of the article, but the headline "Ford issues an OTA update for nearly 49,000 Mustang Mach-Es to address battery safety issues" is completely accurate and communicates the actual story far more effectively.

I really hate the language of "recall", it goes in all the headlines and evokes images of exploding Pintos. Even on my gas car, a "recall" is almost always just a software update and honestly it feels like irresponsible journalism because you know the title is clickbaity and does not generate an accurate understanding for your average reader that won’t read the actual article.

bit of a "chicken or the egg" situation though, yeah? Buyers didn’t consent to be charged for more than their initial purchase, which would constitute illegal behavior on Sonos end, so the fact that they shipped them unwanted product in exchange for the unauthorized charge seems secondary? I’m not a lawyer but I’ve worked in e-commerce for the past decade and the regulations around unauthorized charges are pretty tight and VERY bad for companies that violate them.
