Pie in the sky nonsense...
If I get run over by a computer, who do I sue, the owner of the computer or the programmer? The owner will rightly say the programmer is responsible but the EULA for the software will disclaim all liability. And then of course, someone might blame the hardware, someone else might blame a lack of software upgrades, and then someone else might blame the lack of software upgrades on faulty network software. And we haven't even started to talk about CPU fans, dry heat-sink couplings, dust, etc.
Ok, Apple could bring out an iChauffeur that includes all the hardware and software but we've still got that EULA to deal with that will disclaim all liability which means that insurance companies will ban them until they are proven to be safer than humans and how is that going to be achieved given that insurance companies won't permit their use.
