Bill Gates wants to build cars that won't crash

This is almost too funny to believe. Bill Gates envisions cars that won't crash. Uh, Bill?

In case you had ANY desire to entrust your life to a Microsoft automobile, here is an old retort from General Motors to an earlier statement of Bill Gates:

1. Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.
2. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would just accept this, restart the car and drive on.
3. Occasionally, executing a maneuver would cause your car to stop and fail and you would have to reinstall the whole engine. For some strange reason, you would accept this too.
4. You could only have one person in the car at a time, unless you bought "Car95" or "CarNT". But, then you would have to buy and install more seats.


As they say, read the whole thing.
