Software bug that's a killer

We all know that buggy software is a pain (Windows 3.1 anyone??) but what if your SCUBA computer had a bug that could kill you?!

This article lifted from Slashdot A wrist computer that tracks and calculates safe diving times and limits for SCUBA divers had a dangerous software bug that may have been covered up by company executives. This SF Chronicle article details the product and the problem with it. According to the Chron article, company execs tried to cover up and deny the problem for years, but their company website makes it look like they did a voluntary recall.
