a little appropriate humor

Somebody sent this to me and I thought it was kinda funny and true so I wanted to share it with you all.  Hugs!

Microsoft vs. GM================For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection forthe way computers have enhanced our lives, read on.At a computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared thecomputer industry with the auto industry and stated,"If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industryhas, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000miles to the gallon."In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a pressrelease stating: If GM 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 wouldhave to buy a new car.3. Occasionally, your car would die on the freeway for noreason. You would have to pull over to the side of the road,close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, andreopen the windows before you could continue.For some reason you would simply accept this.4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn wouldcause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which caseyou would have to reinstall the engine.5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, wasreliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - butwould run on only five percent of the roads.6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lightswould all be replaced by a single "This Car Has Performed AnIllegal Operation" warning light.7. The airbag system would ask, "Are you sure?" before deploying.8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lockyou out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously liftedthe door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radioantenna.9. Every time a new car was introduced, car buyers would have tolearn how to drive all over again because none of the controlswould operate in the same manner as the old car.10. You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off.
 
HaHa!
 
Hope you all have a great day!
