Even as a consummate lover of autos and driving, I find my self drawn to this kind of experience as a way to remove congestion and allow for more personal interactions between people and decrease wasted time encapsulated in steel every day..  Not sure about the viability timeline but I like where it’s headed.  Hopefully in my lifetime!  (via On the road: Mercedes F 015 - CNET)

This is brilliant.  I love it when corporate outreach occurs using simple and effective ideas.

So the next time I get the “Blue screen of death” on my windows computer It’s just the operating system?  Is this Microsoft’s way of embracing their faults?  This is what happens when the board room doesn’t talk with the end user.   So if I happen to have webbed feet, by this logic I should just change my name to Duck and walk around in a duck suit.  

Brilliant Microsoft, just brilliant.
