Microsoft joins in on fuel efficiency game

It may seem a little out of place to hear the name “Microsoft” mentioned in the same sentence as “trying to help you save money”, but it’s happening today. While just about every automaker in the world is working on some new innovations in either alternative fuels or a more efficient engines, Billy Gates and friends are providing a different option.

Microsoft is simply telling you not to get lost on your annual road trip, because with the useless circling around trying to find the right exit and unnecessary “wandering”, you’re wasting away that liquid gold in your tank. Of course, this suggestion goes hand in hand with one of the company’s latest products: the Streets & Trips 2006 with GPS Locator.

At $129, you get Microsoft Streets & Trips 2006 with GPS Locator. The non-GPS Locator version is substantially cheaper, with an MSRP of under $40. See, Microsoft is trying to help you save money.
