Google Car
They say that the Google Car will be better in some ways, and I think they may well be right. Humans lack the ability to concentrate for any real length of time, and repetitive tasks ease us into mindlessness. Computers can hold speed and distance with far more accuracy than a human, never gets bored or angry or drunk and can recognize patterns. The patterns are actually there in the highway code.

My one question is this – Would the passengers be liable for any accidents? Would Google be liable? It seems like a mess. I have a good driving record and enjoy pretty cheap insurance rates ($26/month from Insurance Panda.. woohoo!). I also enjoy taking my car out for a spin and enjoying the 'freedom' of being able to drive anywhere. Will the driverless car allow all this? If not, I'll have to pass.

Who knows? Maybe insurance as we know it will go away, replaced by any number of models that would more accurately represent the new risk distribution.

Google Invention
Now a day you can find different types of car and some special designed car on google. Because it is the special storage of every types of products and material. As per my ideas you can find any kind of data in Google in details but all the data needs to be follwoed properly. Like that google car that is the updated one but the thing is it will describing the newxt generation of every model too. But while buying a car you need to have information regarding the repairing center also otherwise you may face problem if immediately your car needs maintenance.

Re: End game
Google Car sounds like a great idea but I have the same concern here. It's not comparable to Google Glass, which is still an IT product. For a car, you need the mechanical and energy part. Tesla did a great job in producing very energy efficient and powerful electricity driven cars. But can Google accomplish the similar thing? There are many engineering aspects to consider here.

End game
Once we get past search with Google, every venture seems to be a really expensive dalliance. Clearly this is not part of Google's products or platform, so what is the end game?

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
