could do accident report. Even had those deer sounders on vehicle to scare them off.
Someone runs off road into brush found day or days later.
Vehicles could go into hostile zones to retrieve people.
Vehicles could know if another is having problems or had an emergency.
Tech has really gotten to be something
I tease the google car every morning by pretend to run into them, change lane passing them, the suckers just stop suddenly! very amusing! the technology is not mature enough for real use in my opinion.
People putting on make-up, looking at a paper or magazine, fooling with radio, music too high to hear a horn or emergency vehicle, talking to someone , retrieving something they dropped , rubbernecking we see it all the time everywhere people pushing their luck doing things they should not while driving. Then you have environmental issues rain, fog, smoke, sun blinding you or headlights, a cow in the road , the list goes on and on. I bet you could think of at least ten things I have not even mentioned.
This would virtually eliminate accidents
People not paying attention
Drifting out of lanes
Running people off roads
Happened to me twice in one day
Had to get off on to side or get hit
Technology has advanced to the point where this is about to become real.
WASHINGTON/DETROIT (Reuters) - U.S. vehicle safety regulators have said the artificial intelligence system piloting a self-driving Google car could be considered the driver under federal law, a major step toward ultimately winning approval for autonomous vehicles on the roads.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration told Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O), of its decision in a previously unreported Feb. 4 letter to the company posted on the agency's website this week.
These auto driven vehicles would be many times safer than human driven - get rid of human error - texting - talking on phone- falling asleep - even if some one falls out like from heart attack, Gives the blind mobility and the physically impaired ability to get around. It is going to happen.
Car looks a lot like Disney VW beetle the LOVE BUG like HG Wells stuff becoming reality submarines and more. I've seen these electric cars on road guess it won't be long and they won't even have a driver. Not a human one anyway.
never got a chance to sell....too greedy today...they will hand our #$%$ back to us it seems
I've been waiting to buy GOOG, but it is still overvalued. Historically, its p/e is approx 23.
In 2010, its p/e was 23. In 2011, it was 19. In 2012, it was 23. In 2013 it was 31. In 2014, it was 25.
If anything, a p/e should drop as a company gets larger because larger companies are harder to grow.
My best guess is that GOOG currently deserves a p/e of approx 21. I would pay 23x for it because it's a well known brand and there aren't many solid, large tech growth stocks at the moment. Given the recent market weakness, GOOG's p/e should be lower than average, so I think a current p/e of approx 21 is totally fair. This puts GOOG shares at approx. $485. I don't think it will trade that low, but this quick math shows that there could well be further downside ahead. I would not expect a major selloff for GOOG at this point if it weren't for the fact that the large tech leaders of 2015 are all coming back to earth (these are the FANG stocks).
I think that starting a long position in GOOG makes sense somewhere around $550, with continued buying all the way down to its possible bottom of $500. That said, I do believe that GOOG will continue to be a strong market leader in the years ahead. After all, it is part of this year's acronym, BAGEL (Baba, Amzn, Goog, Expe, Lnkd) Good luck to all, and STAY WITH FARTNOSE!
If you read all messages in last 10 minutes then they are comical being it seems like someone is really scared due to short covering and afraid to see goog to pop up again tomorrow morning or by Friday above 700 ... All old news and nothing anything that can take away revenue from Goog . Look at what they have and if every one is correct then All Goog Enterprise apps , research , Mobile ad and other revenue flow will double it not tripled plus all patent revenue . So I hope some one puts message that is worth reading versus all old news .
Sentiment: Strong Buy
