Patch Update Like No Other -- From Toyota
You can't miss Toyota in the news; the massive recall has put the company front and center. A side note resulting from that news is that the company is sending customers a software update that might correct the problems, at least in regards to the software. Even more interesting is this comment to a Slashdot submitter, with the mother-of-all-key-phrases:
You already took the 100 million lines of code when you bought the car. Now do you want the bug fixes, or would you rather find out what a "fatal exception" means in more physical terms?
In some ways, this reminds me of the joke, "If Microsoft built cars...", only this joke isn't funny in the least.
