Ford Motor Co. and Bill Gates envision a future where cars wouldn’t allow themselves to crash:
|::::::::||Microsoft Corp. mogul Bill Gates and the leader of Ford Motor Co. outlined a future Friday in which software enables cars to fix themselves and avoid accidents.
Gates and Bill Ford Jr., Ford’s chairman and chief executive, said high-definition screens, speech recognition technology, cameras, digital calendars and navigation equipment with directions and road conditions will set car companies apart from their competitors.
Eventually, Gates said, there could be a car that wouldn’t let itself crash.
Yeeeeaaaaahhhh. Um, Bill? How about you make a product that won’t let my computer crash, first?
