Who's driving? Toyota woes raise car tech fears

Cholly ·
We may never know why runaway Toyotas suddenly seem to be everywhere. The scariest possibility, however, is that faulty computers are driving some victims to their deaths with frightening randomness. Suspicions that an elusive software glitch in computer-controlled throttles is to blame, combined with powerful images and harrowing tales, has tapped into our primal, science-fiction fueled fear of killer computers. Whatever the ultimate cause of Toyota's troubles, the possibility of a "ghost...

I agree, conceptually, with the power of 'gaming' to affect the brain. But... I'm not certain of the degree of the negative effect(s). My home pastor, Elder Charles Toombs, was my first such adviser, and his advise was against television per se. Then he discovered wrestling. He became a STRONG follower. Wrestling was made an exception. It does pay to stay alert...even vigilant. PEACE Jim Chester

Netbooks normally come with 160 GigaByte drives. I wonder how many people really understand how big that is? If the software that comes with the system takes up 10 gig then 150 should be free. A 500 page paperback book is about ONE MEGABYTE. So 1000 of those books would be a gigabyte. So 150,000 of those books could be stored on the hard drive. Actually that is wrong because computers use 1024 instead of 1000 but it's close enough. So strictly speaking for less than the price of one...

Do you think that Toyota is being sabotaged from within? Toyota's reputation has been like a rock for decades in this country up until now, so it is suprising that such a dangerous malfunction is happening to their cars. I must say that I heard about the problem on the news before seeing or knowing of anything like this actually happening to the cars. I think some of these car owners are making stuff up since they had no problem with their cars until after the information about the...

Reference: And while Toyota continues to spiral, sales of Ford & GM went up over 20% last week while Toyota sales dropped 9%. What I find ironic is that this *trouble* with Toyota didn't surface until just after the Cash for Clunkers program. "The Big 3" sold more cars during that time than they had in a decade or could even manufacture fast enough to replenish their inventories! This was boosted by a matching "dealer incentive" program that took an additional $4,500 off of the price of...
