Florida again

State Highway officials announced this fall that they wanted to redo the current plate witch is difficult to read, because of the raised number and the orange in the middle of the plate, with the new plate easy to read, even if the action was caught on cameras and toll's.


A rather fitting quote for the current use of cellphones etc."I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction.The world will have a generation of idiots."Albert Einstein".


No more warning

No more warning in the red light camera of Vine and Michigan in Kissimmee Florida, start yesterday $158 dollars for traffic violation...The warning was in the last 3 month, now no more.

Garmin vs Tom Tom

I have purchased a Tom Tom 1605TM and a Garmin 50LM to compare them and decided which one to keep.
The points I like about the Tom Tom are the 6" screen, the speed is displayed on the left side of the screen and the audible alerts for all types of speed cameras and red light cameras. However is does beep and show a camera for adjacent streets I'm not driving on.

Unlimited data (Verizon)

I ordered a new iPhone from Apple using my wife's number because a Verizon vendor since we both had credits on our numbers had advised me to. She has no data plan. When Apple helped me set it up, I realized our numbers were switched. I went to Verizon and they put a new SIM card in and all was well. The Verizon rep told me the result of this would be that I kept my unlimited Data plan.

SmarTouch Gloves For GPS Operation

I was at a store yesterday and saw Isotoner SmarTouch Gloves for Texting For Men. In fact, the website actually makes reference to GPS use. Anyway, I am just wondering if anybody here has these and, if so, is is still pretty easy to manipulate a GPS with these types of gloves?


Trucker specific forum

Hello all: This is my first post and my question is, when will the poifactory begin listing all of the truck driver gps in their columns? Perhaps I overlooked this feature?


Ebay / Paypal Loophole

Scary store here. Someone sold a brand new iPhone 5 on Ebay. The buyer has 20+ positive feedbacks. Less than a month later, the buyer filed a chargeback claiming the item not as described. The buyer gets to keep the iPhone and gets the money back (basically... free iPhone 5). This is a headsup for those who sell expensive stuff on Ebay.
