    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 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.

    Funny how a joke this old is still true. Cept for point 5 - Mac cars would be sexy and clean hybrids that cost 3x as much and have a coin operated radio

    That was a riot and there is no way some corporate monkey wrote that.
    So I googled the first sentence....

    It is amazing the shit we put up with ,, with these computers.
    Crashes twice a day and we "just accept it for some reason"

    Funny stuff,,, turn the key, lift the door handle and hold that antennae sounds like (CTRL+ALT+DEL)

    Because there is so much truth behind it makes it even funnier.
    Imagine if airplanes were as reliable as computers,,,,,

    Thanks OP. Even if is kind of old,, it's the first time I've seen it.
    I was rolling,,,LMAO
