This wasn't Grignon's typical route to work. He was a senior engineer at Apple in Cupertino, the town just west of Campbell. His morning drive typically covered seven miles and took exactly 15 minutes. But today was different. He was going to watch his boss, Steve Jobs, make history at the Macworld trade show in San Francisco. Apple fans had for years begged Jobs to put a cellphone inside their iPods so they could stop carrying two devices in their pockets. Jobs was about to fulfill that wish. Grignon and some colleagues would spend the night at a nearby hotel, and around 10 a.m. the following day they - along with the rest of the world - would watch Jobs unveil the first iPhone.

Yeah, umh, you really think humans are better at reacting faster to rapidly changing conditions than computers? I guess it probably depends on the human and the computer( no confidence in a comodore 64 in this case), but really modern computers process information at an incredibly faster rate than we do. The challenge with driver less cars is bringing down the cost of the sensor array that feeds them the information they need.
