    An oldie, but even with Vista, it still holds true - For YS!

    The joys of computers At a recent computer exposition (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated: "If General Motors had kept up with the 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, GM issued a press release stating: If General Motors 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 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 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 "General Protection Fault" 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 GM introduced a new car, car buyers would have to learn 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.

    And you would have to take it back once a month to install new parts.

    The US Navy today announced that it has released a senior Al Queda terrorist
    after questioning him extensively for 27 days while he was held prisoner aboard a US aircraft carrier in the Arabian Sea.

    In a humanitarian gesture the terrorist was given $50 US and a white Ford Fairlane automobile upon being released from custody.

    The attached photo shows the terrorist on his way home just after being released by the Navy.
