Close all Windows then Restart 

I'm sure you've heard the joke... it goes something like this:

A Computer Engineer and an Automotive Engineer are talking with each other. The Computer Engineer pokes fun at the Automotive Engineer by saying "If car technology progressed as fast as computer technology then we'd have cars that got a million miles to the gallon, and cost only a few hundred dollars to buy."

The Automotive Engineer replies "Sure, but then every few miles the car would stop for no reason, you'd have to close all your windows and then restart your car."

Well today we've come one step closer to that joke becoming a reality... without the million miles to the gallon or few hundred dollars part of course.

Windows Automotive. Kinda gives you the willies doesn't it?
