Many of you probably know, I dont think much of most new technology and frankly, I believe it is doing more harm than good to us in general. Look at the rate of obesity in this nation for example. Well, I just have to rant about this one. We have a Ford F250 diesel and it started dying on us intermittently while driving down the road. We talked to a mechanic about it and he said with as intermittent as the problem was (only once every few hours or so) that if we could wait till it got a little worse or just died for good, it would be easier to locate and find. I agreed and the last time it did it darn near killed me. I was making a right hand turn onto a highway using the heel of my hand like most of us do when the truck died which immediately killed the power steering. The steering wheel slipped and the truck swerved over into the wrong lane with oncoming traffic. I was able to recover it in time and restart it as usual. Just got the word from the dealer repair shop that this was cause by some sensor that went bad. The design is that when this sensor detects whatever it is suppose to detect, it triggers the check engine light which kills the engine. There's nothing wrong with the actual engine mind you, just a faulty sensor that is telling my truck to shut off when it malfunctions. Brilliant design there on some pencil necked geek's part. Give me an engine, transmission, and a carberator any day. This new stuff sucks. Also had to get a window unit and door lock replaced as well. Didnt have those expensive problems with the good ole hand cranking windows. I also have to just laugh every time I go to the bathroom at Walmart and wonder how much money they spend on those automatic water faucets to keep people from wasting water. I also wonder how much it costs them to replace them because about every other time I go in one, there is a faucet running full go with no one in there. It usually continues to run as I am walking out too, wasting water all by itself. Even more brilliant on Walmart's part is their self check out monster machines. I'll bet them units cost a hefty penny so they could unemploy someone making minimum wage. They are always having problems with them and usually have one or 2 managers (probably making more than minimum wage) running around assisting customers with them. I refuse to use them. :soapbox: Ok. I'm done for now.
