Johnny Cab plans from GM?

Total Recall clip, if you don't remember:

When F-16 fighters came with just a small controller, there were complaints from the stick guys too.

Let GM try it. Anyone who has played a video game will pick it up quickly.

Unless it 100% proven safe then 'no'. First see if it works with trains, buses, and then cars.

Training wheels first!

Right... I'd be also asking GM too about their plan to have a car that drives only in straight lines... :-)

Hmm. I believe Treasury dept still holds large block of GM stock from the 30 billion bailout some years ago so the Government will give them preference. Further more I would love to see an automated car last a winter in South Dakota blizzards. Forgo safety for profit?

Nope, the US government divested the rest of its GM stock way back in 2013

"Government sells last of its GM shares"

U.S. taxpayers no longer own any of automaker General Motors. The Treasury sold the last of its remaining 31.1 million GM shares today. It started with 500 million shares in 2010.

Waymo now has an 'uber like' app service in Arizona. This is happening... Investors are going all in to get a piece of the 'new' car market.
