So whats the point ???

If you are not in control, but are accountable for the accuracy of someone else's code - in all conditions it may encounter, then why would you give up the ability to control your own destiny ?

Does this also mean that you can't have a drink whilst the car drives for similar reasons ?

If they take away the direct user interface, then what is the user supposed to do if something is going wrong and you realise - hit the big red reset button on the dashboard that inflates the interior and exterior airbags ?

This is bonkers and shows why the technology is not ready for mainstream.
