    Can't see Microsoft teaming up with anyone, who'd want a car without a 'Start' button?

    The problem with the jag auto selecting gears, you know some idiot will leave it on auto while they're in traffic, car selects 5th gear when the car in front has slowed down :-/

    It's not even a jag, it's a Rolls Royce. I'll pay attention one day

    Re: Reviews - Ferrari and Rolls get new computer tech installed

    Have they all forgotten about DAB? not all new cars come with DAB as standard - I'd like to listen to more than 2 okish, in small doses, radio stations...
    And second to that is having mp3 connectivity as standard, couldn't give a damn about the rest.

    When Steve Jobs mocked GM, noting that the car industry had failed to keep up with the technological advances of the technology industry, they responded with a press release titled "If Windows were a car". One of the punchlines was this rather mediocre attempt.

    You'd have to press the "start" button to turn the engine off.
    Looks like Microsoft got the last laugh there.

    But credit where credit is due GM did at least get one thing right.

    Every time GM introduced a new car, car buyers would have to learn to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.
    Such prediction. Shame they couldn't predict that rather large "crash" they had in 2009.
