Dreading the Future

At least this aspect of it – self-driving automobiles.  California and Nevada are – at last count – the only two states to approve driver-less vehicles, even though they are still very limited prototypes.

I dislike the cuteness of this car.  And I echo Wire’s lack of enthusiasm for Google’s lack of imagination and creativity.  Is this really the best way to sell the public on the idea of self-driving vehicles?

Then again, I suppose that it likely isn’t going to be a matter of selling the public at all.  I imagine that at some point it will simply be a law that nobody can drive their own vehicles anymore.  I don’t look forward to that sort of future, no matter how efficient they promise me it will be.
