BSOD, meet BCOD*:
Until now, Microsoft has been trying to sell software for expensive navigation systems. Its new ploy is to produce an in-car computer called TBox, running on a dedicated software system called Windows Automotive. TBox can provide directions, make hands-free phone calls and play digital music on customers' mobile phones, iPods or similar devices. It also allows access to telematics services such as remote vehicle diagnostics and electronic yellow pages, which the customer would purchase separately from a service provider.
Hey, if it makes shiny gizmos cheaper, I'm provisionally for it. Just in case, I'll be making book on how long it takes the first TBox virus to appear and start steering people into lamp posts.
