Mountain View, California - This past Friday morning Mark Walker woke up in his trendy loft apartment in San Francisco and started his day like he does everyday. His robot maid dressed and bathed him, his robot chef made him eggs and he then called his robot car to pick him up. But on this particular Friday his robot car never came. So he waited a couple minutes and tried again and nothing. Mr. Walker started to freak out because he has no idea how to get to his office without his robot car.
This was a 24-hour panic that swept across Silicon Valley's elite who have been using autonomous cars to get to work for years now. Robot and Rider talked with Google and there was a 24-hour outage of their software due to a malware attack. Google apologized to everyone who had no idea how to get to their office on Friday.
By Sunday morning Mr. Walker was back to his normal routine of cross-fit and finger-painting with his mother and all was OK in San Francisco, for now.
Silicon Valley, California- Google just announced its first every autonomous car crash where the autonomous car was to blame, and not humans. Humans are rejoicing everywhere, finally feeling some self-worth. Robot and Rider secretly knows that the autonomous car probably hit the bus on purpose, to make a stand against all the terrible bus drivers on the road. Google has already told the robots that it is not right to take a stance against bus drivers and have remedy the "glitch."
"From now on, our cars will more deeply understand that buses (and other large vehicles) are less likely to yield to us than other types of vehicles, and we hope to handle situations like this more gracefully in the future."
Silicon Vally, California- Apple has had huge success with their newest autonomous car the 2050 Apple iCar. People are going ahead an calling it "the future", the "iPhone of cars." With already 1 million iCars sold in Apple's first year of production, it's no wonder Apple is on cloud nine. Until today, when a man locked himself out of his Apple iCar and they refused to unlock the car for him. The man lost his Apple key and can no longer access his car. Apple does not want to infringe on their customers privacy. Robot and Rider reached out to Apple for comment but they declined.
The local man did say that he will have leave his car parked on the street forever, and he's now thinking about buying an autonomous Google Car, even though it's not as cool.
