Dell Streak (Mini 5) As Vehicle GPS

I am considering buying a used Dell Streak (Mini 5), buying the vehicle mount, adding ALK CoPilot navigation onto a micro SD, and using this as a vehicle GPS. Can anybody here tell me if that would make a good vehicle GPS? Also, I would probably get it carrier subsidy unlocked and install a T-Mobile prepaid SIM card as a backup. Plus, the T-Mobile SIM card should allow access to a few websites.

Founding Fathers

This morning, I read an article in Newsweek titled "The Founding Fathers, Unzipped". It lays bear some historical facts about a few of these revered gentlemen that calls into question whether opponents of Automated Traffic Enforcement should invoke their memory when railing against ATE and citing articles - whose facts they have not checked by reading the source documents.

Something to think about this weekend as you celebrate your " Nations" Birthdays

The flag does not fly because the wind moves past it. The flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died protecting it. Our soldiers don't fight because they hate what's in front of them...they fight because they love what's behind them." Do you support your troops.

All the worlds indeed a stage and we are merely players. Rush
