Google (GOOG -0.6%) roundup:1) Elon Musk says Tesla (TSLA) is talking with Google about using its self-driving tech. But he views it as the equivalent of a plane's autopilot mode rather than a total replacement for human control, and criticizes the cost of Google's sensor system - Musk says Tesla will likely develop a cheaper camera-based system. 2) ChannelAdvisor reports same-store sales for clients via search ads rose only 2.3% Y/Y in April. Sales via shopping engines (such as Google Shopping) rose 6.1%. 3) TheStreet's Anton Wahlman points out Google Glass could see strong commercial uptake. Soldiers, emergency personnel, and retail industry workers are named as potential users.

    Uptake depends on the runtime of Glass headsets. Who will use them if they need recharging after 3 hours?

    Absolutely. Cost is a factor. Million cars will need at least 20 million camera sensors to start with. OVTI can make them in volume and can make it cheaper as well. They can even talk to the traffic cameras (. OVTI cameras of course )

    I wonder if the global car brands are going to manufacture in Cn. If they do, then they ought not complain about the Cn military or govt stealing their secrets.
