Alphabet is the Rodney Dangerfield of tech companies. It gets no respect. Waymo, its self-driving car subsidiary, announced recently it will launch a fully autonomous taxi service in Phoenix in 2018 — years ahead of schedule. August 19, 2018 Mountain View / CA / USA - Waymo self driving car performing tests on a street near Google's headquarters, Silicon ValleyGetty Self-driving cars are real.
