Letting Google control my cell phone is one thing. But driving my car is an entirely different matter. Yet Google wants preliminary approval to operate self-driving cars in Nevada. Where does it end? And will I need to ask Google for permission to drive to work one morning rather than sit in back and leave the driving to them? :>)

Oh the insanity.


Google, a pioneer of self-driving cars, is quietly lobbying for legislation that would make Nevada the first state where they could be legally operated on public roads.


The two bills, which have received little attention outside Nevada’s Capitol, are being introduced less than a year after the giant search engine company acknowledged that it was developing cars that could be safely driven without human intervention.

Unless travelling in the Empty Quarter, I will never own anything that tracks my location.  You can have your toys.

Appreciate your work Reggie, but fail to share your enthusiasm for Google as a benign "do no evil", life enhancing corporation.

The system isn’t yet ready for showrooms, as there is work to be done securing the personal data and location awareness information it collects,

Yeah... I'll bet

THERE IS no such thing as a benign corporation. These are inanate shells owned and ran by people for profit.

but I'm worried, their expenses are up :)

Looks like they are going all in and many fronts and likely have the money and talent to do well on most fronts.

MS fell into the role of standard setter, Google had the vision and has done the work and risked the money to be the new standard...sure all kinds of guys will be nipping at their heels, Apple, Windows/Nokia, Bing, Amazon etc....but if 2/3 of this stuff works, they'll be good.

They thing that would nail their success is if they have one person close to power than gets customer service/design detail. Google growth from search makes them a little dull on the retail gadget end, but all their partnering is filling that in for them.

Its likely the Ice Cream Sandwich will incorporate a lot of what they partners did themselves to Android..and the partners won't even complain
