Cars vs Computers

I got this funny bit of email today…

For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection for the way
computers have enhanced our lives, read on. I guess it is supposed that
Bill Gates compared the computer industry with the auto
industry and stated, “If GM had kept up with technology like the computer
industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to
the gallon.”

So General Motors is like: “Hey, if GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be
driving cars with the following characteristics:

(and I just love this part):

1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.

2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a
new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would
have to pull to the side of the

road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the
windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply accept

4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your
car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to
reinstall the engine.

5. Macintosh! would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable,
five times as fast and twice as easy to drive — but would run on only five
percent of the roads.

6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be
replaced by a single “This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation” warning

7. The airbag system would ask “Are you sure?” before deploying.

8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out! and
refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned
the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

9. Every time a new car

was introduced car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again
because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old

10. You’d have to press the “Start” button to turn the engine off.”

Those are some odd features…is this all meant to be ironic?

Sorry for no updates…maybe more will come with the Christmas Holiday…I’ll be able to share more of what I’ve been busy with by then 🙂

Thanks – out.

    Maybe you could try asking a car vaotauiln agency to help you with this matter. Usually they have competitive that could be very helpful if you want to attract plenty of buyers. +16Was this answer helpful?

  7. Is there anything in Israel worth having ? They are a paranoid people that the Jews around the world don’t even recognize, those that do recognize Israel don’t even understand there own Torah.

  9. forse è solo una nostra impressione, non saprei… ho infatti notato che, al termine di una giornata lavorativa, diverse persone mi hanno chiesto che profumo avessi, lo sentivano e piaceva molto! )
