The Computers are at it again…

I’ve posted before about how people put far too much trust in their computer-based devices and how one day it could even spell the end for us all… Via Guy Kawasaki’s Twitter feed another case popped up on my radar today:

A computer consultant apparently put too much faith in the GPS technology in his rental car: It didn’t tell him to look both ways before driving onto tracks as a train barreled toward him.

Innocent mistake or carefully calculated encounter at the hands of our silicon-based “friends”? ;)
