Survival of the Fittest

Drama started when the Japanese car giant Toyota recalled eight models (around 2.3 million units) in the US after a serious accelerator pedal problem. Seems like, when you press hard at the accelerator to speed up, chances of getting stuck is high! Sounds like death trap that is usually designed by heinous villains in the movies^^

Well from business point of view, GM and Ford has started marketing campaigns to woo the Toyota car owners, who would be looking for an immediate replacement. Here is a review from Business Week. Though it is an opportunistic and strategic move, I guess that the blind faith on Japanese cars might be shattered and naturally people would have started looking for the best alternative.

Somehow, I can't stop myself from thinking of vultures circling over a dying man.
