"the wow factor comes in the form of a 41-megapixel sensor with high-performance Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology"

41 megapixel camera within a phone is certainly a very advanced feature. I wonder if there's enough utility of this feature. Would people want smartphones that have such a good camera resolution? Would getting a phone with 41 mp camera be as good as having an SLR camera?

With some major companies already having announcements at the begining of the show, I am curious to see what the rest of the week brings and if there are any hidden surprises that companies are waiting to release.

Jennifer, 

Are you there? I was planning to go, finally I didn't make it. :(

Jenn: I think "squawk" is the best term, but may already be taken. As to Movies Not to Drive By, "Christine" has to be at the top of list, along with "Smokey and the Bear" and "Convoy." And yes, somewhere in the 1970s, I actually watched those two movies. I'll swear it was under duress, though.

It does sound a little too robotic, doesn't it? I'm envisioning  "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"... creepy.

@ Barb

I think its very difficult to fully automate the driving experience. Even if you are'nt driving, others are. And because everyone driving the car is not sensible or undistractable, your automated-driving-car might not be agile enough to avoid collusions through sensors. However, manual driver can avoid it.

As far the infotainment experience Bolaji mentions, its likely to grow as years pass by but automation to such an extent as we dream, that may not turn out to be a reality unless everyone on the road is doing the same i.e. watching Independance Day, and letting the driving part to technology.

Self-driving cars

I think we have those, except they are called trains...:-)

I'm all for a self-driving car. I find the experience of driving unpleasant when you are constantly avoiding distracted drivers. Other times, it can be a pleasure to get out of the house and away from all my electronics devices.

The problem with the self-driving car is one of control. I know people who simply can't give up the idea of the flexibility of using a car versus mass transit. And I'm not sure how the self-driving car doesn't end up looking like mass transit. Any ideas?

Jenn, I tossed a comment at Barbara that I would like you to respond to. What happens when we finally get cars that drive themselves? The challenge of being conscious of vehicles next to you while being entertained by Will Smith in the next Independence Day movie or gorging on some delightful stories about Brangelina fades away.

Ford should give me a car that can sense other vehicles, take my instructions on destination, where to stop for rest, whether to visit Aunt Jenny on the way or avoid uncle Frank's cabin.

Ford should tell us about the next-gen vehicle that is really cutting edge and, for me, that would be one that allows me to enjoy reading the news on my tablet PC, take calls on my smartphone and watch a cool movie while the vehicle takes care of all these driving business!

There's a solution to all these Barbara. We should just get self-driving cars and sit back, enjoy all the infotainments we can while being chauffered. Some of us might even read a book!
