    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 (and I just love this part):

    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 t! he 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.
