more of a disillusioned former Google supporter. many feel burned and bitter by their big brother crap.

it's not spin, just preparing for the worst, because that is the trend they've been showing us.
absolute control/power corrupts absolutely.

Google grabbing more power?
not surprised. surprised would be if they "did no evil".

I was a bit skeptical when I'd first heard about this.

What I hope happens is that they start off focusing on commercial applications like parking lots and drive ways.
That will give the technology time mature and the price to come down.

otherwise yeah, I suspect we'll be rebuilding a lot of roads as they work the real world bugs out.

In the case of NASA/ESA they have human rated systems and cargo/satellite rated systems.

it would not surprise me if there are 50+ cargo/satellite launches for every human rated launch.

so first use, send it up as a human(yes, I know they aren't there yet) rated and after that down grade it to cargo/satellite.

after a few hundred of these launches you can start to analyze your flight data and success rates and say, "ok now we'll keep this system human rated for 3 launches".
