Next phase in Google's driverless cars: no brakes or steering wheel | May 29
Backseat drivers will be out of luck
In the early 1960s, Hertz put "you" in the driver's seat. Now over 50 years later, Google is putting folks into a vehicle that is self-powered. Or maybe we should say "Google-powered." Too bad for all the backseat drivers, who won't have anyone to complain to. In our 21st century of progress, we can leave the driving to Google.

Cable service unacceptable
Tampa providers behind the times
I recently moved to Tampa from the West Palm Beach area, where I had cable connected in four rooms. This week I tried to get cable in a townhouse I just moved into, and neither of the two cable major providers for Tampa was able to provide service for more than one room, unless I wanted to run wires around the rooms, which I did not want to do. I finally got one TV connected in the living room only to have the service go out every night. I am now resigned to antenna TV, along with Amazon TV.
One would think I had moved to the hills of Georgia or Tennessee, not the Tampa Bay metropolitan area. My question is: When are the Tampa cable companies going to move into the 21st century? My guess is they will become extinct first.
