Comment: No thanks. (Score 1) 722 722

I commute about a thousand miles a week, mostly rural thank goodness and I still enjoy driving. Still work on my own cars too. Robot cars? No thanks.

But for the other screwball drivers out there who seem to have the attention span of a fruit fly, I hope they all adopt the system, and soon. From what I've observed over the past several years, it would seem most cars are already driverless.

Bull. The kids in Cebu who got our jobs at Lexmark (Lexington, KY campus) not only got sub-par wages but also got paid in rice. We all saw the material when it was forwarded to us by mistake the last week we were there. The whole H1B Visa program is rotten to the core.

One person's story:

I used to test software for a living, and our team was pretty darn good at it. We took our work seriously, and personally. If something was missed, it made us all look bad. So we did our damnedest to be the best. Part of our work also involved finding bugs missed by overseas testers. And there were always plenty. Too many in fact. It was a constant battle. Then one day we learned that our team had been off-shored... to the same group of folks that we used to have to constantly keep an eye out for.

Take from that what you will.
