Re: BMW CEO to quit after carmaker loses early lead in electrics

is the future of the company best left in the hands of a man who has known no other corporation or culture?

Re: We're alive / we're dead

The irony would be if they replaced the staff with AI...and it started tossing the managers out of the pod bay door due to conflicting instructions..... :mrgreen: Dave: [sternly] HAL, I won't argue with you anymore.
