Giant Robot Imprisons Parked Cars

Giant Robot 1, Hoboken 0:

:smiley: :cool:

Car owner: Open the car park door, HAL!
HAL: I’m afraid I can’t do that, Steve.

Humm. I worked for a consulting company once that did something similar – had a timer in the software that shut it down after 6 months because they didn’t get paid. From what I remember, we got sued big-time for interruption of business and because there was nothing in the contract to allow for this “remedy.”

Hmmm. Isn’t Clearwater, Florida where the Scientologists have their headquarters?

Yes, it is. Robotic Parking, indeed!

A Transformers reference on the second post. This is why I love the SDMB! :smiley:

I hate it when I park my car, and when I come to pick it up, there’s an E-meter where the gas gauge used to be.

It’s also where the Hooter’s restaurant chain is from. Strange bedfellows, indeed.
