Desi Programmers make Fuhrer turn in his grave

In the proud EC tradition, twisted the headline. Methinks, the Germans are incapable of such stuff and only a Desi Dimaag could have come up with such an Idea.

Volkswagen is being engulfed by a growing crisis over its attempt to make millions of diesel cars appear cleaner than they are.
The scandal broke Friday, when U.S. regulators said the German company had programmed some 500,000 vehicles to emit lower levels of harmful emissions in tests than on the roads.
Volkswagen stunned investors Tuesday by admitting that the problem was much bigger than that: internal investigations had found significant discrepancies in 11 million vehicles worldwide.
It set aside 6.5 billion euros ($7.3 billion) to cover the cost of recalls and "efforts to win back the trust of our customers," trashing its profit forecast for the year in the process.
Shares in Volkswagen plunged another 20% Tuesday, after crashing 17% Monday. That means more than a quarter of the value of the company has been wiped out in just two days.

That I don't know. I came to know of this incident because my friend was given the task of debugging (why this stopped working suddenly) and he told me. He was not a desi guy - that is what I remember from conversation. Not sure of exact ethnicity.

Shakti Pai, has opened another thread for the main story with all the graphic details. But reusing this thread for the conspiracy theory. How many think that only a Desi could have come up with such an idea?

A desi would not go into all this trouble. He would simply bribe the EPA if he can get away with it.

Re: Desi Programmers make Fuhrer turn in his grave

Even if desi deemaag behind it the final bosses are German. They must have known and approved the software. I wonder if the researcher called VW to claim his finder's fee threatening to expose the scandal.

This will hurt all of German auto industry, even question their tall claims of superiority in Engineering. And German govt can't lecture others in climate conferences.

All auto businesses are fooling the customers, this is not new. When you take car for oil change they make you sit in a air conditioned room with tv and coffee. In the pit they remove some old oil and add equal quantity of new oil. They charge for filter replacement but they don't do it, plenty of investigative hidden cam video reports on youtube to prove this. All the 15 minute lube shops are ripping you off.

Re: Desi Programmers make Fuhrer turn in his grave

People need to be realistic about large corporations. They exist to make money for their shareholders, the more the better. If they can make more money by selling a product which heals the environment and makes you healthy they will do that. If they can make more money by selling a product which pollutes the environment and gives you cancer they will do that too. Expecting morals and ethics from a corporation is falling into the 'corporations are people' trap. They aren't.

Every single corporation is only as responsible as the laws of the land FORCE it to be, and to the extent that the laws of the land are enforced. Don't ever expect anything more. Instead of venting your ire on Volkswagen, vent it on people who keep electing governments who can't understand the need to regulate business. It's the GOVERNMENT'S job to look out for our, not Volkswagens.
