Why Not To Tech Just Because You Can
Guy Browning in the Guardian. Read the whole thing here. It’s a hoot.
I’m told that the new Jaguar has an electronic lady on board who will introduce herself when she thinks you might be running low on petrol. She has a seductive throaty note (much like the new diesel Jaguar XF) so male drivers may not notice for a while that they are actually being nagged by their own car. In truth, she is mild mannered compared with the harridan in the satnav (that’s Brit for GPS–Frank). It’s a pretty sad fact that almost half the drivers on our roads are now being continually bullied by an electronic tapeworm with a spatial superiority complex.
