Windows errors on giant public billlboards are their own cult Internet photo-genre, but this is a great example of the species: an enormous Windows error dialogue-box on the towering billboard across from Toronto's Eaton Centre.
Are you sure it was not a Mac advertising?srobert said:Funny that just before reading this thread I stumbled upon this:
That's harsh! I sometimes wonder about all this high tech stuff on automobiles. I mean, NO HEADLIGHTS?!?!yellow said:The BCM (Body Control Module?) on my Jeep just crashed and burned on Sunday (Oct 17th). With it dead, I had no Speedometer, no headlights, no wipers, no interior lights, no power locks, no remote keyless entry, poor shifting, and a host of other things.
It took 4 days to get it fixed, the dealership had to order a replacement BCM from DaimlerChrysler that was specifically tailored for my Jeep.
Thanksfully it was under warranty, I'm guessing a replacement BCM for an out of warranty car is expen$$$ive!
Seriously. And no speedometer, and as luck would have it, on my way to the dealership on Monday morning, I had an unmarked cop behind me on the highway. I'm sure it wouldn't have been a problem to get out of a ticket (I didn't get one), but sheesh.Mr_Ed said:I mean, NO HEADLIGHTS?!?!
Gotta love the obligatory "tech-demo snafu".Wengert also demonstrated how the in-car speakers could be used to make phone calls, but with less luck: it took him four tries before the computer got the phone number right.
The question being, of course, if Apple will sell out to Microsoft and adopt WMA.Wengert says whether [the iPod] will work on a Windows Automotive system is a "question for Apple."
Well, there's one relief.Windows Automotive, by the way, does not share a network with the low-level systems of a vehicle--so a software crash won't result in, say, brake failure.
