Kiss and Say Sayonara: GM, Toyota Tech Alliance to End

Edmunds Inside Line is reporting a technology alliance beween Toyota and GM is set to end next week, and that the two will indeed part as rivals for the position of #1 automaker. The deal, which was struck in 1999, has produced... wait for it... nothing. Toyota reportedly couldn't deal with GM's constant whining, while GM felt Toyota was a self-centered workaholic and would it hurt if it brought home flowers just once? It's not like every gas station in town doesn't sell them now.
