Wired reports that the recently released World of Warcraft is turning out to be one of the more pleasant experiences in MMORPG combat.

We wonder how you feel about cruising around without a human navigator at the wheel, but this could certainly be the future we're all destined for. Already the town of Antibes on the French Riviera, and other nearby areas are considering buying fleets to taxi tourists around their crowded streets. I'd like to see them pull some of the manuevers I've witnessed with the cabs in Manhattan.
