Driverless taxi of tomorrow Google just put a big chunk of money into Uber, basically a limo service that has a bad reputation. And Google is talking with Tesla.

Slashdot speculates that Google bought Uber for their app and it fits into Google's plans to have their driverless  car on the market within 4 years.

Surely Google wasn't in the market for a limo service that has a not good reputation and doesn't even own its limos.

Working people from taxi drivers to attorneys to maids to engineers face being replaced by technologies of differing sorts. A small and shrinking clique will own everything and everyone else can go drop dead. That is the libertaryan dream  a world belonging to a few ubermenschen and if we don't wake up soon we'll wake up dead.
