Little known facts:
And for tonight:
#3 above caught my attention in reference to an article I recently read from one of the Auto industries future looking dudes. He mentioned how fast things are changing due to technology. We all who buy computers and phones know that fact, for sure. You spend $200-500 for a phone or computer and in 6 months it is just hanging on before coming extinct!
Son Mark drives for UBER. So we have learned a little about this new technology. But this ‘thinker’ carried it a little further. UBER owns no cars nor ‘Taxi Lot’, but is presently the largest Taxi service in the nation. He further stated that individual cars will soon be ‘out of date’. You need to go somewhere? You will tap an app on your smart phone and within minutes a ‘self-driving electric car’ will show up. You will get in and because you have already told it on the phone where you are going, there is no need for directions, it just drives off when you are comfortable. You may be working on your phone or tablet as you go.
Since this will be a ‘computer car’ you are directly on the ‘net’. You fare is deducted from your bank account and there is no need to look for a parking place when you arrive at your destination. If it does malfunction, it will call its replacement.
Then he pushes this subject further: At that point you do not buy auto insurance nor make a car payment. Traffic accidents are nearly none and traffic deaths will be minimum.
I am not sure I like the ideas but, I have no control on the future of technology. Just not sure I want to fly in a 747 or ride in a car with no pilot or driver! Just sayin’.
But I do appreciate the mind that can visualize that stuff!
