"People will be too busy browsing the Internet, playing games, watching a movie, etc. while relaxing in the vehicle. Commuting is a waste of life."
Yes, it is. I think it will be a while though before we relax in these vehicles. As a driver I am often uncomfortable as a passenger because other drivers don't drive the way I do (they make different decisions, move the car differently, have different margins of safety, etc.) Others have said though that letting the car drive itself is a huge control issue.
