Driving is a chore. We would do well to be rid of it.
In the future wealthy folks with nothing better to do will keep cars and drive them around on private tracks, much like those that ride horses today. But it is a certainty that once the tech is ironed out, the lower cost of insurance for self-driving vehicles will ensure gradual adoption, and human-operated vehicles will become rarer and rarer, and eventually they will be banned outright on public streets.
Or it could just be silent. If I'm sleeping, I'm not about to go looking for a suspect automobile, anyway.

I've worked on a ship. On US-flagged vessels, it is customary (probably even mandatory) to change the shifts when switching time zones. A one-hour change is normally broken into three 20-minute chunks, to distribute across the three watch shifts. There is a special board labeled 'advance clocks' or 'retard clocks' hung under the clock in the mess, so everyone is made aware.

Actually, scientists don't use centimeters. Unless they're writing press releases. The art
And that is exactly the crux of the issue. The internet wasn't designed for any particular purpose. It was designed for any purpose anyone could dream up. It is ridiculous for anyone to think they had enumerated all the uses of the internet, or believe anyone ought to 'justify' their consumption.
The player piano predates radio broadcasting by a few decades.
And you misspelled "you're".
How do you send a text message holding the phone next to your head?
Government isn't a business, and shouldn't be run like one. We call ourselves citizens, and not (yet) consumers, because the relationship between citizens and their government is different than the company/client model you are trying to advocate. Put down the Rand and pick up some Rawls (or Plato even).
