It would be a conflict of interest if the government made a percentage of the profit that a private or corporate entity made from a particular ruling. This would lead eventually to the gov issuing trademarks to large business for practically everything. I do not want to live in that world.

When the human testing starts, should it be old people first? afftected-continent people first? family-receives-high-payment people first?

I think they should be volunteers at the very least.

If you RTFA you'll notice that human testing has already started.

Unfortunately, I don't see simple car interfaces coming back.. not if Google gets "behind the wheel" of the next car revolution. Google Cruse is going to be the next app store for your smartcar, mark my words. Everyone is going to get WAYYY more features than they ever wanted and end up with a car that freezes for 5 - 10 seconds before pulling into drive (just like an android). They'll convince everyone they love it, though, by offering 100 different choices for the voice that naggs you when your gas (battery) gets low and offers you three EXCELLENT choices of stations (2 of which have paid for premium placement in the notification system).
