What attracts me most about driverless cars is that I am freed up to be productive. Personally getting from A to B isn’t much fun, it’s not productive time, and I get frustrated from having to sit there incapable of dealing with emails, correspondence, research and anything other than a phone call. I know, relax…enjoy the ride! I couldn’t agree more.
My thoughts are that if I didn’t have to drive (I can’t afford a chauffeur) I could relax…and enjoy the ride. Read, write and get things done before family time.
The article http://www.technologyreview.com/view/512091/is-this-why-google-doesnt-want-you-to-drive/ suggests that Google has a plan to monetize its long investment in the technology. And I guess the author is right. For one one would be searching the web, as needed. Good thinking Google.
