GM’s Amazing Comeback


Guys just read this:

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly

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”.

In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a

press release stating: 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. 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 over 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 this.

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 light.

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 car.

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

Man I wish I knew where I got this amazing article so I could quote it but unfortunatly I don’t. If anybody knows could they please leave the URL in a comment? Thanks!
