The weakest link in technology

People still are the weakest link in the world of technology. No matter how much advance we see in technology, there's always a point where it depends on people to make decisions. And this is where the problems start...

A U.K. woman sent her 141000€ Mercedes SL500 flying into a river because she blindly trusted the car's optimistic GPS guidance system instead of the road signs. In her head, if the GPS was telling her to turn left, then she really needed to turn. Is it possible that she didn't stop to think that, if there was a river on the left, maybe she shouldn't have turned?
