16Conan points out the Google car still has a few bugs

Google's self-driving car caused a stir last week with people debating whether they would really want to give up complete control of a vehicle to a vehicle.

Its latest creation eschews that ability, putting the computers entirely in control. Comedian Conan O'Brien realized that there still could be

188Nearly all cars to be autonomous by 2050

Well, fellow humans, we're going to obsolete soon. A new study by IHS Automotive claims that by 2025, a mere 11 years from now, there will be 230,000 self-driving cars on world's roads. 10 years beyond that, the number will swell to 11.8 million, although only select models will do without any traditional means of human control by 2030.

71Apple testifies in court that it once considered making a car

In the ongoing court battle between Apple and Samsung over copyrights and patents, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing took the stand yesterday. The majority of his testimony was centered around tablets and smartphones, and what defines intellectual property, but at one point he revealed a big nugget.

AddThe Google Car Was Great Public Relations, But It Wasn't New

Audi reported last month that its driverless Autonomous TTS research car had completed the winding, 12.42-mile climb to Pike's Peak in 27 minutes. That's only about 10 minutes longer than it takes a human to drive the course, but I certainly didn't see it reported on the front page of the newspaper. About a month before that, however, Google let loose with a public relations effort about how its engineers had been riding around in modified Toyota Priuses that drove themselves. You would have th
