Yes, Brian, the animated aspect of the ad that keeps attempting to distract me from what I am reading. Almost as bad as that "bobble head" that neither one of us liked very much.

A slow moving self-drive feature could be quite useful for those who get into lots of slow traffic. I am mostly able to avoid that situation, except on I94 through Indiana between Chicago and the Michigan border.

@WilliamK, yes, I believe both Mercedes and BMW have luxury models that will self-drive in conditions under 25 mph. I was chatting with a Linear Technology co-founder recently who has a model (it's a few years old actually) that he loves because in slow-and-go Silicon Valley traffic he lets it drive itself. 

On your other point, I'll see what we can do... you're referring to the animated aspect of the ad?

@Adeniji, you're quite correct. Not fun at all (unless the game players came out on the "track" after the race and fought each other, as we're seeing in NASCAR racing in the U.S. these days!). 

Your point raises a completely different thread about where sports is headed globally. Every major sport has its video game and its statistics-based fantasy leagues. I think they collide at some point in the very near future.

Well, were we satisfied with horsepower? We will never be but to be honest, who really needs it? Its marketing 101... companies need to come out with something to sell new products, and to do that, they need to prove that the new is better than the old... the easiest way is to say: 350 HP > 300 HP! Same thing happens with technology.

@Adeniji Kayode, are you saying that there should not be any means to over ride the control system in a car with the automated driving feature? My position is that such a horribly unsafe vehicle should not ever even be allowed into the country. ALL computerized systems are subject to failure, and must have a means to stop them. That is why in all of the safe factories the automated machines still have those big red "emergency stop" buttons. Besides that, the driverless car will never be produced that can handle unanticipated exceptions, and so there must be a way to over ride the control system for that occurrence as well. 

A computer crash can be quite inconvenient, but a car crash can be quite fatal. Those are facts, they are also the reason that we should never trust machines completely, and not trust computers very much at all.

@ t.alex

This will only be possible if the service providers will cooperate with the automobile companies and also if automobile companies will not install an over-ride.

@ Brian,

Just wondering what the fun would be like if the drivers are removed, will car racing not become llke a video game?

@ Mr.Roques,

well said, but manufacturers will keep updating and upgrading all these stuff in to their cars.

Can we actually say we have had enough of technology in our cars and can we really say we are satiisfied with what we have
