Bye bye Waze. I am sure Apple evaluated a purchase and decided 'not' was the better option. Looks like Maps is developing well.
That demo was awesome bar the one little (ok, pretty major) hiccup. The demo showed the potential of the technology.  I wonder how the cars can be controlled real time. Was he doing that or was everything programmed?
Par for the course, I'm afraid. As soon as everything that has been endlessly foretold is announced this forum (and every tech article out there) will announce their disappointment at the lack of Wow!.

I don't use any streaming service at the moment - I used to use LastFM. The part I liked was to be able to see other people who liked what I liked and then listen to their song lists.
