I personally have a lot of love for non-profits, just not Uber and Tesla.

Google maybe no longer developing a self driving car?

Makes sense. Not much money in manufacturing these things but software and service can be killer.

Update on that driverless Uber..

https://electrek.co/2016/12/14/uber-sel ... strian-sf/

Official statement from Uber:
This incident was due to human error. This is why we believe so much in making the roads safer by building self-driving Ubers. This vehicle was not part of the pilot and was not carrying customers. The driver involved has been suspended while we continue to investigate.

Uber's gargantuan losses are growing more slowly.

Uber will be sued because current employees stole Waymo's (Alphabet subsidiary) LiDAR designs when they worked at Waymo to bring with them to new jobs.

Aaaaand Uber lied about its car caught running red lights, the cars turn out to have been not driven by people after all.

Tesla's self-driving car video may be little more than deceptive marketing.

Such as only filming when rush hour wasn't happening (those times took frequent human intervention)...

A look at Uber's self-driving progress.

There is progress, but at this rate it feels like I'll be dead before we have fleets of self-driving cars on speed dial in Minnesota.
