Windows Built Ford Tough
Every time Microsoft talked about putting its operating systems in cars or at
the center of our home entertainment systems, I'd scoff, knowing the only thing
that crashed more than Windows was Nascar's Bodine brothers (two points if you
know their first names!).
Now Redmond is prepping a
deal to put Windows in new Ford cars, letting drivers check e-mail (please
pull over to do this!), navigate or Web surf.
Despite my earlier skepticism, I'm ready to give Microsoft the benefit of the
doubt (though I still don't want Windows operating my brakes!).
