The future is now

Been off blogging for awhile, I’e been real busy.

California is now the second state to allow self-driving cars:

Google’s self-driven cars rely on video cameras, radar sensors, lasers, and a database of information collected from manually driven cars to help navigate, according to the company, which pioneered the experimental technology in 2010.

“This technology is coming,” Senator Alex Padilla, the bill’s sponsor, said on the Senate floor. “We’ve got to embrace the technology and embrace the benefit that comes with it, but do so in a way that abides by the safety requirements and regulations of our roads.”

I suppose this is ok, but it’s kind of creepy to me too.  Will Google tailor its’ cars driving habits to match my search results?  Will cars drive citizens to prison upon command?
