Google's Car Without A Driver: Consumerism Without A Life ?

Google has announced technology that has been tested over 140,000 miles that drives an automobile. Specifically , the car needs no driver. It relies on Google maps for the shortest distance on all car trips. The software also analyzes traffic conditions as per artificial intelligence and adjusts speeds.  All Google needs is some one to take out an auto loan and buy the car. Presumably a driver license may not be needed if Google presses a comprehensive marketing blitz. The consumer age has reached the point where the consumer is only necessary to to buy the product and the product from then on has a life while the consumer takes a back seat in the car and in life.
