Living on the Edge

We got a new car this week. A Ford Edge. Sandy chose the color, I chose some of the innards. We have a lot of learning to do with these newfangled computerized car thingies everywhere. Even a geek like me can feel overwhelmed at times. I uploaded a few photos, take a look. Yes, a lot of it is powered by Microsoft, and I know the drill””My car could possibly give me the Blue Screen of Death or even require weekly updates and antivirus protection””but so far so good, no evidence of any of that stuff. I haven’t heard anything bad about Sync, but I think it’s fairly new. After reading Daemon and Freedom by Daniel Suarez, I know we’re taking a risk, but I don’t think the world is quite at the “Auto Mate” stage just yet. The goodies are a blast though, that’s for sure.
