Some of these items I find rather disturbing and dystopian.

73 Mind-Blowing Implications of Driverless Trucks

Uber just announced that it just ordered 24,000 self-driving Volvos. Tesla just released an electric, long-haul tractor trailer with extraordinary technical specs (range, performance) and self-driving capabilities (UPS just preordered 125!). And, Tesla just announced what will probably be the quickest production car ever made — perhaps the fastest. It will go zero to sixty in about the time it takes you to read zero to sixty.

this is like horse and buggy in early 1900's. my grandfather , was a farmer and in upstate New York, Lewis County. was the first person where he lived to have a farm tractor, to plow the fields and could plow more fields than a horse and plow could. people around him though that was bad. but when they saw he could have Sunday afternoon off , maybe having a tractor was a good idea. instead of using a horse. he still kept his horse as they were better at pulling logs out of the woods, than a tractor, also in winter time they could more places than a tractor. this is like when computer started out, as people figure out we can do more, with less. this is the future.
