well, lets put on our critical thinking hats for a second a think this through.
a) If the vehicle is autonomous (fully) we assume it would be programmed not to break the law. (see e.g. Tesla speed assist tech http://my.teslamotors.com/it_IT/forum/forums/speed-assist-lane-change-confirmed-tesla)

b) If the autonomous functionality was purposefully set to break the law (i.e. drive over speed limit) that would mean the human broke the law the same way setting your cruise control over the speed limit doesn't mean the cop pulls over the car and lets you go.
 
Here's an interesting question: What will autonomous vehicles do for the police?

Time to rename this collection to car tech or something.
 
We spent Saturday at +Thinkery, a children's museum in Austin, and couldn’t have had more fun! We brought along our prototype vehicle and Lexus SUV, and hung out to answer questions about our project and learn what Austinites think of it so far. 

Here were some of our favorite moments:

1. We heard from kids that our prototype vehicle looks like a gumdrop, an owl, a rock with a face on it, an ant, a bug, a moving living room, a computer mouse, a car with top hat... and our personal favorite: “the future.”

2. We invited everyone to tell us what they'd do with a self-driving car. Two of the most popular answers? Eating tacos and reading.

3. We also got some really fantastic questions. Does the prototype have windshield wipers? Yes, but not on the windshield. They’re on our sensors—our car’s “eyes”. Does the car have an eject button? Well...no. When can I get in one? We’re working on it!

Another highlight of the weekend was Mayor Steve Adler’s announcement that we’ll be bringing a few of our prototypes to town for testing. In the next few weeks, they’ll be out navigating the same area north and northeast of downtown where our Lexus vehicles have been self-driving for the last couple of months (both vehicles will continue to have test drivers aboard). Austinites, please keep sharing your thoughts with us on our website (www.google.com/selfdrivingcar), and we’ll see you on the road!

Imteresting. I do think about going back to iOS every now and again, mostly because of how smooth SMS & call forwarding between ithings and Macs are. Glad to know my 360 wouldn't be useless junk if I did lol.

The good
This is an awesome interactive watch face, its good to see more thought is going into watch faces and functionality for watches overall. It turns your wrist into a canvass for your friends. http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2015/08/interactive-watch-faces-with-latest.html
The bad
Design needs work. On smaller screens, features that require browsing though multiple options work better with compact list views (not for heavy txt), or in this case a square/rectangular grids or clustered circles a la Apple Watch.
