    Now I know why Billy is so rich. He's using the atm and a so called "bug" in NT4 to get money from the poor atm user

    An OS in a car

    why would they want to put an OS in a car? I can understand this for a GPS system.

    Do you have a link for an url, I would love to read something about this

    LoL, I would NOT drive that car...
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    As a logical follow-up to the communication system developed for the Xsara Windows CE, the restyled Xsara offers an optional Auto PC. With this option, the car is fitted with a PC running under Windows CE. [B]A voice recognition and synthesis system[B] lets the driver control a wide range of functions including the hands-free telephone, the navigation system, the radio, the CD/CD-ROM drive, the address book and the six CD autochanger.
    Passenger: "Hey, man. I just picked up a CD Player yesterday at..."
    CD Player turns On
    Passenger: "What the...? Dude, whats wrong with your car?"
    Driver: "Oh. Windows Voice Recognition. Just turn it off... ... No that button beside the radio."
    Radio turns On
    Driver: "Aw, damn. Thats loud, man. Turn it down!"
    Passenger: fumbling with controls makes an unknown call with car-phone
    Phone: "Hello? Heeelloo? Who is this?"
    Driver: "What? Turn down that music!"
    Phone: "Bob?" (names changed to protect the innocent) "Where are you?"
    Navigation system comes on
    Navigation System: (Mechanical Voice) "Searching for link..."
    Driver: "Ahhh!"
    Drives off bridge

    youd be sfae knowing the damn thing would never even get started yet alone up to a high enough speed to crash! Its food for thought though, theyve taken over operating systems, atms, cars i mean whats next? They even have minesweeper on simens mobile phones!! just the microsoft home appliance range to come....

    >>mow the lawn

    a few more people with a few less fingers, eh?

    Yeesh, I can just imagine...

    "Aw, crud! my car just broke down...gave me the BSOD and EVERYthing..."
    "Call AAA, dude!"
    *guys calls up triple-A*
    "Good afternoon, Microsft Help Desk, how may I help you?"
    "What the...I wanted AAA, must be a wrong number...sorry"
    "wait, sir! This is the right number, but we've taken over the help desk seeing how most of the car problems are our fault ANYhow..."
