    Please don't misinterpret the following comment.  I am most certainly not volunteering - but I think that it would be interesting and entertaining to invite a member of the forum community to participate in a 5 or 10 minute segment of the weekly podcast.

    If you do consider this suggestion, I'd like to nominate @sog35 as your first guest.

    Apple if you are trying to create a self driving car, please stop wasting your money on it at this time.
    It will be a VERY LONG time before a self driving car meets my and many others needs.
    There is just far too much risk for other cars,
       plus your self driving car will probably slow down traffic, particularly at complex intersections.

    It will be an even longer time if everyone stops working on them!

    I think we can also assume that before a self-driving vehicle is allowed on the roads, it will have proven that it's features and capabilities make it safer for their occupants AND for other cars (especially at complex intersections where other drivers break laws and make mistakes!)

    I'd be willing to go on the podcast. But what the hell would I be talking about?
    Tim Cook?  The stock price?  Taking the company private?
