Oracle Announces Facebook Windshield Integration

Hey all you dedicated Facebook users! Can’t put down Facebook while you’re driving? We have the solution for you. Stay connected with your friends even while driving with Oracle’s newly released “Facebook Windshield”.

Oracle Facebook Windshield Heads-up Display

Combining automotive hardware and integration software, the Facebook Windshield is an Engineered System that keeps your focus on Facebook so you are not wasting so much time dealing with common driving annoyances such as paying attention to traffic lights and watching for stop signs.

Empirical studies have shown that 60% of the time, drivers are moving in a straight direction. So why not put those fingers to better use by staying connected with your friends using the heads-up display windshield keyboard. And when you need to turn the wheel, put one of those knees to work. They’re not doing anything and they’re horrible at typing.

Feedback from the testing program was very positive in the age 16-17 category.  Below are a few quotes from the category:

  • “dude…you gotta check this thing out”
  • “I think people who worry more about driving details than Facebook just don’t get it.”
  • “They really thought this thing through…after my traffic incident and after my airbag deflated, it let me finish my post. This is awesome”

Some concerns from the age 18+ categories however focused mostly on safety. These concerns were emphatically put to rest, much to the satisfaction of the beta testers with the following assurance from Oracle product management: “I can say with 75% confidence that all concerns in the 4 areas of enjoyment, collaboration, entertainment, and safety will be addressed prior to delivery of Facebook Windshield.”

Oracle Announces Availability of Oracle Exaskeleton with Extreme Scale

The World’s First Human Scale Body Surface (HSBS) Designed to Toughen Spineless Wimps

April 1, 2012

  • Building on the success of Oracle Exalogic, Oracle Exadata, and Oracle Exalytics, Oracle today announced the general availability of Oracle Exaskeleton, toughening up spineless wimps across the globe through the introduction of extreme scalability over the human body leveraging a revolutionary new technology called Human Scale Body Surface (HSBS).

  • First Customer Ship (FCS) was received by the little known and mostly unsuccessful superhero Awkwardman. After applying Oracle Exaskeleton with extreme scale, he has since rebranded himself as Aquaman. Said Aquaman, “I used to feel so helpless in my skin…now I feel like…well…a highly scaled Engineered System thanks to Oracle!”
  • Thousand of meek and mild individuals eagerly lined up outside Oracle Corporation’s Redwood Shores office to purchase the new Oracle Exaskeleton, with the hope of finally gaining the spine they never had. Unfortunately for the individuals, a bully was spotted allegedly kicking the sand covering the beaches of Redwood Shores into the still spineless Exaskeleton hopefuls.

Supporting Quotes

  • “Industry analysts are inquiring if Oracle Exaskeleton is a radical departure from Oracle’s traditional enterprise focus into new markets”, said Oracle representative Sabrina Twich, “Oracle has extensive expertise in unified backbone solutions for application infrastructures…this is simply a new port to the human body combining our Business Intelligence (BI) and RDBC (Remote Direct Brain Cell) technologies.”

  • “With this release of Oracle Exaskeleton, Oracle has redefined scalability. Software and hardware vendors had it all wrong” said the Director of Oracle Exaskeleton, “Scalability for hardware is like…um…you know…so scale-ful. No, wait…can I say that again? I didn’t get that right…Scalability is hardware-on-demand with public and private…hybrid clouds, no…<long pause>…Scalability for… nevermind, I don’t want to be in this stupid press release anyway”


  • An upcoming Oracle Exaskeleton service pack release will include a new datasheet with an extensive library of three-letter acronyms (TLAs) as well as the introduction of more four-letter acronyms (FLAs) since technologies vendors have used up almost all of the 17,576 TLA permutations (TLAPs).

About Oracle

  • Oracle engineers hardware and software to work together in the cloud and in your data center. It would be an amazing coincidence if any of this is true in some secret Oracle lab, but I doubt it.
