BRAINY CARS MAKE FOR A BORING RIDE (int'l edition)
"Your car may be smarter than you" (Science & Technology, June 29) tells me that the real purpose of adding computers to cars, en masse, is to relieve highway congestion. When all these systems and more still to come control the vehicle, most of us won't have any desire to get into a car and drive. You point to an Orwellian future in transportation, where the pleasure of driving is gone. I'll stay at home.
