Apple to Test Self-Driving Vehicles in California: Ending years of speculation, Apple’s late entry into a crowded field was made official with the disclosure that the California Department of Motor Vehicles has awarded a permit for the company to start testing its self-driving car technology on public roads in the state.
Of course knowing Apple, you still won’t be able to actually use the car until you’ve read and agreed to the 380-page user agreement. All I can say is – we’d better hope they’re not planning on using Apple Maps for directions. It’s 2017 and Siri still tries to send me across the Atlantic when I’m just trying to get to the market down the street.
I’m still trying to imagine a conversation between Siri and a state trooper if the car ever gets pulled over. Hell, Siri’ll be likely if it doesn’t get tasered. And it would be my luck the car would stop moving just as soon as a phone call comes in. Or you get an error message like this: ”Recommended software update 2.0.3 – fixes a problem where windshield wipers activate instead of brakes being applied under certain road conditions.” And of course, the big question is, would an Apple Car have Windows?
