Who would even think about adding in networking capability to a automated car? They will probably have some sort of "On-Star" system in them sorta like we have today. But im certain the code that drives the car itself is kept separately all by itself so the possibility of a "car virus" is not possible, yet anything worth mentioning.

We have them, they now look like this.
Just not feasible for a on-road vehicle. Plus the idea of flying cars is just completely absurd. The amount of time they would have to invest in creating a network of "roads" in the air is a waste of time. If you wanna travel fast, take a plane.Edited by Warmonger - 9/18/12 at 2:52pm
