    The Rays Made me do It

    Are cosmic rays really causing Toyota's woes? | freep.com | Detroit Free Press

    Radiation from space long has affected airplanes and spacecraft, and is known for triggering errors in computer systems, but has received scant attention in the auto industry.
    The questions show how deep regulators and automakers may have to dig to solve the mysteries of sudden acceleration. Toyota says it is fixing mechanical problems -- floor mats and sticky pedals -- that explain sudden acceleration in 13 models and 5.6 million vehicles.
    But at least half of more than 1,500 recent complaints to regulators involve other models, raising questions whether Toyota has fixed its problem.
    An anonymous tipster whose complaint prompted regulators to look at the issue said the design of Toyota's microprocessors, memory chips and software could make them more vulnerable than those of other automakers.

    Re: The Rays Made me do It

    I heard Toyota is already working on a time machine so they can go back and kill the guy who invented the Prius, and every smug actor that ever convinced people to buy them.......although, if they kill the inventor, they wouldn't really need to kill the actors would they....except maybe this one....just to be safe....
