Oohh, Boy Did I Just Read That Right

Bill Gates Is Advising Auto-Makers On The Use Of Technology:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050430/...oft_automotive

I like this line:
Eventually, Gates said, there could be a car that wouldn't let itself crash.

!WHAT!

Little ironic isn't it - well actually, irony would be if the head of a company whose products crash made a keynote speech to another company advising on how products shouldn't crash and then the keynote software crashes.

It might coincide with the car company's take on securing the items in your car.

CTV ran a story yesterday on a GM van owner accidentally using his keys to unlock another van. I've heard many instances of keys at the very least OPENING other car doors... others will even let you start another person's car.

I think you misread the announcement. Bill Gates was saying that if Windows Auto Edition crashes, it automatically builds a new trunk (reboots).
