Yea, yea, yea.

ETC was going to kill us all. Electronic steering was going to kill us all. OBD-II computers were going to kill us all. Infotainment was going to kill us all.

I don't see why you guys are so worried about car-to-car communications. All the other technical advances of the last forty years already killed us all.

skozlaw: He worried in regards to a population of which 2/3 owns a smart phone on a website that includes ad tracking and Google services from an Internet connection that is, in all likelihood, being scooped by the NSA.

I hate to break it to you, that barn door ain't closing.

"We know everything you do, every second of every day and it updates in real time!  Every penny you have, what you eat, what you buy, where you buy it, where you go and when and who you go to meet!"

"Huh, so what do you guys do with all this?"

"We sit.. here and.. we.. watch and listen and.. record... all this stuff."

"Every day?"


"So, that's pretty much your entire life, then?"

"... YESSSSSS *sob*"

Texting while driving is illegal where I live.  I guess the cops are going to pull me over and say "no, you're fine...the ticket is for the car."

Isaac's got this:

1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2) A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

I don't even have cruise control in my cars. I'm old-school that way.

basemetal: Text your speed to that cop sitting at the side of the road?

They won't do that.  Pulling over a speeding driver still costs money.  They can maximize $afety by transmitting your speed to computerized receivers that just mail you a ticket without any human intervention.

* Tickets may be contested within 30 days in-person on the 5th Tuesday of every month between the hours of 2 and 3 in the 3rd sub-basement of the capitol building.  To contest your ticket you must bring a cashiers check or money order in the amount of the ticket as a non-refundable appearance fee.  If you are unsuccessful, the ticket must be paid in-person, on the 5th Tuesday of the month, same place, same time, within 30 days, or your license and registration will be suspended.

So there I was. I buy this new ride with a car-to-car communication system. Little did I know my Chevy was going to fall for a Chrysler and leave me stranded. The last thing OnStar could tell me is they were heading toward the Canadian border.
