Questions about Google self driving car

As all the fuss is about the new two passenger Google driver-less car there are many questions yet to be answered.

I thought I'd ask them now and search for answers later:

  • Who will get the first one hundred cars? 
  • What are the specs? I.e horsepower, range on battery, any air bags or other safety? Etc 
  • How does calling and setting locations work? Is Google maps involved? Maybe the new ubr integration? where can the car go? i.e. drivethrough? 
  • Is there going to be more apps connected? i.e. can you listen to music or watch youtube or netflix, etc
  • How does payment work? And pretty important how much does it cost? Assuming less than traditional taxis would be good competitive edge. 
  • Payment methods? maybe cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, etc
  • What kind of regulation is there or will there be? Does it simply pass a driver license to say it works? 
  • How many rides or how long can a customers retain the car? for example if I want to run errands could I stop and go in to the store and the car will wait? etc

Any more questions that should be interesting?

Future time in gmail from yahoo.com ?

So I have strange problem, got an email from a yahoo.com (got many emails before) and it shows a future date for some reason, as you can see the current time (I checked other times) are correct. Not sure what the problem is or if it showed up for anyone else. Where to report this? please advise.
