Let Google Drive Your Car For You

Google wants to take over car driving at the Inquirer completely takes Larry Page’s quote out of context to write a hilarious article. Larry Page, Google co-founder, said “40,000 people die annually in US car crashes.” Page then “proposed giving computers control over cars” so that there will be fewer accidents.

Well, we already have the Lexus that parks itself. So why not cars that completely drive themselves. This is not really an original thought, and many people see this as the future. But will people trust Google to drive them around?

    I’d trust Google to drive me around – provided they mapped all the streets in my neighborhood. ;)

    …and didn’t rummage through my glovebox looking to learn even more about me…

    The real question is this:

    How far away is the first co-branded Google car?

    …and will it be a GMoogle, Hondoogle or Mercoogle?

    Trust Google to drive me around? Sure.
    Trust Google to rank the web in the best way? Nope.

    Not sure I’d trust Google for driving… I don’t trust my own family when they want to drive me around…
