Google to test new self-driving cars at Moffett Field

Google plans to begin testing its new prototype of a self-driving car -- which, unlike earlier models, the company hopes to operate without a backup driver -- at NASA's Ames Research Center on the grounds of Moffett Field, just a few miles from the tech company's headquarters, space agency officials said this week. Because Moffett is federal property, Google cars can drive the network of streets that crisscross the sprawling, 2,000-acre research facility without worrying about California regulations that say a human operator must be able to take control of self-driving vehicles during testing on public roads.

la TV stations free up airwaves for wireless broadband

An effort to free up some of the airwaves used by TV broadcasts and make them available for wireless broadband took a big step forward this week in the U.S. Two TV stations in Los Angeles, KLCS and KCET, have agreed to share a single frequency to deliver their programming, freeing up a channel that can be auctioned off to wireless carriers next year. The change, which the Federal Communications Commission calls "repackaging," is possible because digital TV broadcasts don't need the full 6MHz of broadcast spectrum that was used for analog TV.
