    Some yes. Not sure when we will. I don't doubt they will get to be as (in)competent as people are, the question will be will we be able to trust machines with the same level of power and destruction as we trust people with now. People are (collectively) terrible at driving, and cars are incredibly dangerous. Anyway... it'll be a while. I'm also skeptical of the induced demand they will bring (if you don't have to actually do the driving, and gas/electricity is cheap, why not go do XYZ all the time).

Question: Hey a big great confusion. Should I create 4 YouTube channels (one for Music in English, one for Gaming in English, one for Music in my own language and last for Gaming in my own language)? Or should I create only one channel and add all Music + Gaming contents of both languages in single YouTube channel only? Any pros-cons for both method?

Question: Today I find a weird thing in REAPER 6. It wasn't in 5th version. When soloing one audio track, other audio tracks still give sound. Their sound is low but why other tracks are making sound when I have already soloed a track? Or did you guys changed something? If yes, how can I revert back like it was in 5th version (other tracks doesn't make sound when soloing one track)?
