Web Exclusive: Google's self-driving cars are rolling into the city

Posted: Updated:

(CBS/CNN) - Google's self driving cars are hitting city streets now that they've mastered the highways.  The experimental self driving cars are now being tested in mountain view California where pedestrians, bikers and other obstacles present a bigger challenge for the robot operated vehicles. Florida, Nevada, Michigan and Washington DC have all said they'd be willing to have the driverless cars tested on their city streets.

If you use Internet Explorer, download an update ASAP.  Microsoft says there's a huge security gap that could let a hacker take complete control of your computer if you click on malicious link.  It affects versions 6 through 11.  Homeland security says users should download a security tool kit from Microsoft or use another browser until the problem is fixed.
Japanese automaker Toyota has made it official.  The company is moving its U.S. headquarters from California to Texas.  Toyota says the new corporate headquarters in North Texas will bring together U.S. employees now scattered around the country.  The company says all those affected will be offered relocation packages.  The carmaker plans to break ground on its new Texas headquarters this year with an official move expected in 2017.
Trainers at SeaWorld Orlando began wearing custom-designed emergency vests Monday during whale shows.  The vests have a mini scuba pack and become flotation devices with the pull of a cord.  Head trainer Kelly Flaherty Clark says it's designed to keep the trainers safe while working with the orcas.  Trainers have not been in the water with whales since the 2010 death of a trainer and they won't be going in even with the new vests.
Federal courts upheld a mandate by the occupational safety and health administration that trainers stay out of the water.
