Google’s Self-Driving Car Is Real, And It Looks Like A Tiny Bubble-Car
We’ve known Google has been working on self-driving cars for awhile now, but all of a sudden, the project is real: last night, Google revealed a working prototype of its self-driving car. It’s a two-seater that looks something like a mashup of a Fiat 500, Steve Urkel’s car, and a cartoon smiley face.

Gmail’s new-ish tabbed inbox offers the mechanized convenience of sorting all of your solicitations—your Groupons and Gap coupons—into one pile away from your more important email.
