Sorry to prolong this thread but this is the article that prompted my original post. As "retired guy" with insomnia, I have a lot of internet "surf time."Four ways self-driving vehicles may change business1. Trucks could travel 12 inches apart in "platoons" that reduce drag. Fuel savings could reach 15% to 20%.2. Americans spend on average 250 hours a year commuting. If a car does the driving, that time could be spent working.3. Because self-driving cars will be safer, they won't need heavy safety cages. Bad news for the steel industry.4. Insurers will have to figure out who's liable in an accident: the car maker, the software designer, or the GPS provider.http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2012/11/12/self-driving-cars/and I might add:5. Who will watch automobile races if they are no longer a "blood sport"?6. Who will buy a Ferrari if you aren't allowed to "floor it"?http://autos.yahoo.com/ferrari/Tim
