    One bites the dust or I want a self driving car.

    Apple to lay off 190 employees from self-driving car division

    The affected jobs — most of which are engineering positions — are in facilities in Santa Clara and Sunnyvale, near the company’s main headquarters in Cupertino.

    Boomer I think we will see a bunch of the electric companies fall off in the coming years. Electricity is going to get much more expensive. Wonder why they don't just build better filtering exhaust systems for gasoline vehicles. Going to be difficult for these companies to keep up with latest tech on the all electric vehicles. Competition is going to really get fierce.

      i seem to recall reading that Apple was going to focus on the software side of the self driving car technology, rather than than the hardware. So laying off engineers might not mean Apple is giving up.

        This pet would go great with a self driving car. Don't have to worry about it shedding fur on the upholstery either. It can do tricks too!

          Let's just hope we don't eventually end up as
          TARS suggested, as "...slaves for his robot colony."

            Yea! Scary. Maybe the "limber quadruped" would take me for a walk. I hope it wouldn't make me fetch.
