Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – December 2014

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Hopefully, our GPS units will get us to Grandma’s house without taking us over the river and through the woods.

The link is 2 years old but the message still applies.

It looks like it will be tough “sledding” here in the Northeast with 8” of snow predicted in many areas this Thanksgiving eve.

Please BACKUP - not just your device, but also your computer

piracy expert?

In a headline from a tech newsletter I get each morning:

• Uber has hired a piracy expert to investigate its data privacy practices following the company's public relations fiasco. Brett Molina from USA Today reports.

My guess is they want to see how much more personal data they can get from all the smartphones with their app.

Black Friday / Holiday Season Deals - 2014

Wow, time certainly does fly...

Thanksgiving and Black Friday are next week, so it's high time we get the yearly deals thread started for the holiday season!

Any great deals you find interesting and want to share are fair game. It's okay to go beyond GPS and to chat about items you hope to find.

Winter is HERE

Well, winter is actually everywhere sad

Now it can get pretty cold up here (-24C or -11F on Saturday), but we only have a few centimeters of snow. The media is reporting that areas around Buffalo got 5 feet of snow in one dump! The media is also reporting that there were freezing temperature in EVERY state - including Hawaii.

Yikes - it is only November! evil

Edmonton city report says, Photo radar details too sensitive for public,

The number of speeding tickets issued by the City of Edmonton to motorists driving less than five kilometres per hour over the speed limit is too sensitive for councillors to discuss in public, says a city report.

Red light camera ban hits the burbs, with lost revenue

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2014/11/12/tra...

safety takes a back seat to revenue, tell me it isn't so.

Cities should have brain stormed better ways to generate extra money (stadium concerts, fesivals, water parks, ect) without robotic ploys to bankroll themselves.
