For those whose computers have issues...

if this has already been shared, I regret the duplication. received today, thought it worth sharing


For  all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection for the way computers  have enhanced our lives, read on.

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 characteristic:

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 manoeuvre  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.
