Apparently, the news is that while laptops can save you from a bullet and still work, they can't save you from a military-grade absurdly giganormous SUV. Like the notebook found in a computer teacher's Honda following a fatal crash with a Hummer. That too was still working. Unlike the teacher. Incidents like this make us ask questions such as: what is the deadly element here? Humvee Hummer, laptop, moron or Windows Vista?

Yes, this was a human life, but a human that was endangering not only himself, but others by using his laptop WHILE driving. This is a prime candidate for the Darwin awards. Driving is the only thing you should be doing in the drivers seat of a moving vehicle. NOT putting on makeup, NOT yapping on your cell phone, and NOT shuffling through your ipod. A vehicle is about the most dangerous thing out there, and it drives me crazy to see what people are doing behind the wheel of a 2 ton vehicle flying down the road at 80mph. I am of the opinion that ANY activity while driving other than paying attention to the road is completely irresponsible, and in many cases (such as this one), deadly. While it may appear to be in poor taste, I think it is important to get this message out there. Maybe you will think twice before booting up your laptop in the express lane.
