Hi I thought you might get a chuckle out of these. Have a great day!!!

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:

For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.
Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new
car.
Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no good reason.
You would have to pull over to the side of the road, close all of the
windows, shut off the car, restart. For some reason you would simply accept
this.
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.
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.
The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be
replaced by a single "This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation" warning
light.
The airbag system would ask "Are you sure?" before deploying.
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 ho ld of the radio antenna.
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.
You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off.

Please share this with your friends who love - but sometimes hate ?
their computer!
