    Macs only ever dreamed of being window stoppers. They do well as door stops though.

    I heard Apple is making a self-driving car. They are having trouble installing Windows.
    Current retro systems:
    Commodore 64 Breadbin 250407 Rev. C
    Packard Bell Pack-Mate 28 Plus
    Toshiba Satellite Pro 410CDT, 2x IBM ThinkPad 380D (TFT and DSTN)
    iMac G3/600 Graphite, iMac G4/800 Lampshade

    Well it seems Apple has been producing robots since 1984. That's some trick when you can get hoomans to do the same thing year after year.

    IF MICROSOFT BUILT CARS...
    __________________________________________________ _______________

    The top 13 ways things would be different if Microsoft built cars:

    1. A particular model year of car wouldn't be available until after
    that year, instead of before.

    2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road, you'd have to buy
    a new car.

    3. Occasionally your car would just die for no reason, and you'd have
    to restart it. For some strange reason, you would just accept this.

    4. You could only have one person at a time in your car, unless you
    bought a car '95 or a car NT, but then you'd have to buy more seats.

    5. You would be constantly pressured to upgrade your car... Wait a
    sec, it's that way now!

    6. Sun Motorsystems would make a car that was solar powered, twice as
    reliable, 5 times as fast, but only ran on 5% of the roads.

    7. The oil, alternator, gas, engine warning lights would be replaced
    with a single "General Car Fault'' warning light.

    8. People would get excited about the "new'' features in Microsoft
    cars, forgetting completely that they had been available in other
    brands for years.

    9. We would still be waiting on the "6000 sux 58' '' model to come
    out.

    10. We'd all have to switch to Microsoft Gas (tm).

    11. The US government would be getting subsidies from an automaker,
    instead of giving them.

    12. New seats will force everyone to have the same size ass.

    13. Ford, General Motors and Chrysler would all be complaining because
    Microsoft was putting a radio in all its models.

    ...and another old one:


    WHAT IF OPERATING SYSTEMS RAN AIRLINES?


    Somebody on the net asked that preposterous question and here are the
    responses, as told to us by Alan Paller, Computer Associates International
    Inc.'s director of open systems.


    DOS AIRLINE
    Everybody pushes the airplane until it glides, then they jump on and let the
    plane coast until it hits the ground again, then push again, jump on again,
    and so on.


    MAC AIRWAYS
    All stewards, captains, baggage handlers, and ticket agents look the same,
    act the same, and talk the same. Every time you ask questions about
    details, you are told you don't need to know, don't want to know, and
    everything will be done for you without you having to know, so just shut up.


    WINDOWS AIRLINE
    The airport terminal is nice and colorful with friendly stewards, easy access
    to the plane, an uneventful takeoff. . . then the plane blows up without any
    warning whatsoever.


    FLY NT
    Everyone marches out onto the runway, says the password in unison, and forms
    the outline of an airplane. Then they all sit down and make a whooshing
    sound like they're flying.


    UNIX AIRLINE
    Everyone brings one piece of the plane with them when they come to the
    airport. They all go out on the runway and put the plane together piece by
    piece, arguing constantly about what kind of plane they're building.


    -- -- --


    You forget of course that many people flying WindowsAIR either don't realize
    there's another airline, or can't afford the ticket prices, or don't mind
    being able to fly only to rural areas.


    -- -- --


    True enough, AmigaAir designed a wonderful airplane and very beautiful and
    all that rot, but you got the end bit confused.


    Right after take off, AmigaAir fires the pilot, copilot and all the air crew,
    and refuses to tell anyone that the airplane exists, but insists it will be
    the most popular airline.


    Then, while in mid-flight, the airline dissolves, but all the airports insist
    it's business as usual.
