Automotive 'error'?

Daily Photo Galleries

I have been viewing Google's driverless car — no steering wheel, no brakes, all computer-controlled. What an incredible advance in auto safety!

At the same time, I am unable to delete emails from my files. When I attempt to do so, the Internet gives me a message: “An unknown error has occurred.” This is mildly annoying. No harm done.

Imagine if something like this would occur in my new driverless car while riding on an interstate at 65 mph. No steering wheel, no brakes, just a message saying, “An unknown error has occurred.”

This strikes me as a solution where no problem exists.
