    and sticking with XP.
    The smartestmanonearth tried a couple of years ago to have the I-5 corridor from Olympia to Canadian border mandated and driverless cars only.

    Ignoring OTR trucks. Busses. Vacationers. Died, but you know it's not gone.

    Oh, but I'll smoke a joint on TV and all will be fine, right?

    Hook it up to the politicians, there will be plenty of bandwidth left over for gaming...

    But I do wonder about those who are only “superhumanintelligence” away from being Bond
    or cartoon super criminals…

    I still maintain that one day soon, everyone will be implanted with a chip at birth containing everything known about the individual - his DNA, family background, etc. I believe dogs already are. Remember, you heard it here.

    There's no doubt Elon is a dreamer; but a lot of his dreams have panned out pretty good and I think there is more to come. Others have also worked on various forms of man-machine interface, but usually to replace some deficiency (like enabling the deaf to hear, blind to see, etc.)

    Anyone remember hearing Stephen Hawking speak? That was a man-machine interface (granted a very crude one). He had "Lou Gehrig's" disease, which is "rare", but there are some 15,000 Americans living with it today. Hundreds of thousands have regained their hearing with cochlear implants, another crude man-machine interface.

    Interesting too that Hawking became so associated with that early electronic voice that when he was given a choice to change it, he didn't want to.
