California DMV Told Google Cars Still Need Steering Wheels
"I agree, having a manual break should be required as a bare minimum."
A manual brake would be even more useful, along with a kill switch for the engine.
No, a manual break, such as sledgehammer to the wheel or knife to the tire, will work just fine.

Tesla Releases Electric Car Patents To the Public
A clearer statement than "we took our plaques off our wall" is needed, but assuming there is a clear statement from Tesla that they will only use these patents defensively, anyone who takes them at their word should be safe.
Telsa should have the CEO publicly post such a statement where Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use their technology. This will be quickly picked up by tech blogs and linked to the statement.

Apple Isn't the Next Microsoft (and That's a Good Thing)
I think the reality distortion field must have hit you pretty hard. Apple has been accused of producing expensive crap ever since the Lisa and Macintosh were sold. Apple has never been a big proponent of free or open standards; they have been using propriety standards for Macs, iPods, and iPhones since their creations. While Steve Jobs did write the open letter for the music industry to stop requiring DRM, he was also criticized for doing nothing for movies (especially since he owned Pixar at the time).
