Microsoft Offers to ‘Vista’ Your Medical History

Today Microsoft unveils new web application HealthVault, a medical records manager
Would you trust your medical history to Microsoft? I think they have more important things to work on first. Like Vista… Can you imagine if every time you scheduled a physical a box popped up and asked, "Are you sure you want to do this?" Then you would be asked if you wanted to scheduled the Home or Ultimate physical. (It would take you several months to figure out which was covered by your insurance provider. Meanwhile, all the TV commercials for Microsoft HealthVault would show you features available only in the Ultimate physical, giving you the impression that you’d get all those features included in either package.) Then you’d be asked to verify that your doctor is a Windows Genuine Advantage doctor. Finally, late at night when no one was looking, Microsoft would ‘update’ your medical records without telling you, even if you turned off automatic Microsoft Medical Records Update Service.
Thanks, but I think I’ll wait until Medbuntu is released instead.
