*Robert Novak asks Senator Bennett About Embedded Chips* -greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

NOVAK: Senator Bennett, there are an estimated 50 billion embedded chips in the world, at -- I've read that six percent of them may be defective, but because of the Y2K, but if only one percent are bolluxed up, how much of a problem would that be for a variety of things not working?
BENNETT: Yes, one percent would be an enormous disaster. And when I first got into this the most responsible estimates I had were two to three percent failure. There are some folks that have said as six percent. But I don't really think it was ever that high.

Yes, but now he says it's only a percentage of that one percent. Can someone link to Paula Gordon's answer to Duke? Anyway, what the hell does Bennett know? I'm quite serious.
