    Just Imagine how bad it will be when these geniuses force the un-manned car down our throats.
    Wonder how that pile of plastic circuit boards will last in the Nevada Desert?   Opps , sorry , the $10 sensor had a melt down and , opps, drove your car head on into a greyhound.  It's ok though, because it's technology, so it must be good for us.  MORONS!!!

    Don't we have programable thermostats?  Oh, forgot, you need to set it from your phone or car , for ................some reason????
