On The Road To The Self-Driving Car

http://onpoint.wbur.org/2014/02/05/self-driving-cars-google-x-computers No more dumb cars, the Federal government decreed this week. Or at least, no mute cars. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Monday it will soon require all new cars to talk to one another. Share location, speed, direction and more, electronically. Vehicle-to-vehicle – “V2V” – communication. Right behind that comes the next frontier: self-driving cars. First they talk to one another, next they drive themselves. The auto industry, Google, and the law are all gearing up. Guests Tom Costello, correspondent for NBC News.

‘World’s Biggest Airline’ Cleared For Merger Takeoff

The US Airways-American mega-merger to become the world’s biggest airline is cleared for takeoff. We’ll look at what this means for prices, travel and our life in the skies.

In August, when Attorney General Eric Holder brought suit to block the mega-merger of American Airlines and US Airways, here’s what he had to say:  the giant merger would bring the American flying public “higher airfares, higher fees and fewer choices.”  The Justice Department noted ominously that the merger would give just four airlines control of 80 percent of domestic air service.  Bad news, they said.  And then?  Last week, the D.O.J. approved the deal.  American will be the biggest air carrier in the world.  Up next On Point:  what the mega-merger in the skies means for you.

From Tom’s Reading List

USA Today: Merger: What’s next for AA, US Airways customers? — “Neither American nor US Airways frequent-flier members are at risk of losing their miles. Eventually, the carriers’ AAdvantage and Dividend Miles program will be combined into a single program. Customers who have miles with each airline are expected to simply have their miles combined, though the timeline for that was uncertain as of Nov. 12. But US Airways customers will soon see one significant change. The airline has been a member of the Star Alliance frequent-flier program, but the “new” American will stay with the oneworld alliance that American is already part of.”

Bloomberg Businessweek: Meet the Mega-Airline: Regulators Roll Over for American-US Airways Merger — “Both the government and the airlines are claiming victory, naturally, but it’s hard to see much the Justice Department lawyers managed to alter from the initial merger proposal. American and US Airways will need to sell access at two airports that cap flights with takeoff and landing slots—52 pairs at Reagan National near Washington and 17 at New York’s LaGuardia Airport—while also relinquishing gates to rivals at five other large airports. ”

Los Angeles Times: Long Beach Seeks Boeing 777X – “Once considered a long shot, Long Beach is one of several cities under active consideration by Boeing after the International Assn. of Machinists and Aerospace Workers voted down a tentative labor agreement by a 2-to-1 margin late Wednesday. Now Boeing, along with state and local officials, is in talks about the possibility of bringing the 777X program to Long Beach, where the company currently builds the C-17 Globemaster III cargo jet.”
