Microsoft V's General Motors Ltd


Recommended Posts

As Bill Gates launched the new Microsoft Vista program at a gala presentation in Los Angeles on Monday, he exulted that if General Motors had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1000 miles to the gallon.


On Tuesday, General Motors issued a press release saying, au contraire, if GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:


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


2. Occassionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull to the side of the road, close all the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue.


For some reason you would simply accept this.


3. 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 5 percent of the roads.


4. The air bag system would ask "Are you sure?" before deploying.



The irony of course being GM on the brink of goin Bust.
