Class action lawsuit challenges Knoxville's red light cameras

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A class action lawsuit filed in chancery court challenges Knoxville's red light ordinance for a three year period.

The attorney in the case, Robert Pryor, argues that the city's ordinance violated the state constitution from February 1, 2005, when Knoxville passed its ordinance, through July 1, 2008.

Have Your POI Interests Changed Since You Joined POI Factory? (And, If So, Why and How?)

I have been thinking about this lately because I have been using my Garmin Nuvifone G60 as both a cell phone and GPS automobile navigator for the past several months now. Prior to that the Garmin StreetPilot 2730 was my day to day GPS workhorse. With the 2730 I would find myself looking at Custom POI files that I had downloaded for gas stations, restaurants, stores, etc.

New FAQ for Forum Rules

I have created a new FAQ page that describes POI Factory’s guidelines for the forums. There is a link to the FAQ below.

I decided to do this because there has been some negativity in the forums lately, and it is time to do some spring cleaning. There has been a lot of political debate, which becomes heated and disruptive to the community. I have also seen new people treated rudely.

Contributors of the Week 2010-04-19

This week we are recognizing Mahoney.

This week you took on the huge task of documenting all the McDonald Play Places. Not only did you make a separate file but you also edited the original file.

You are amazing and we are so lucky to have you as one of our major contributors.

Thanks again for all that you do around here.

Cars that steer in direction driver is looking

shock Wow. Just Wow.

"Tired of spinning that steering wheel? Try this: German researchers have developed a new technology that lets drivers steer cars using only their eyes.

Raul Rojas, an artificial intelligence researcher at Berlin's Free University, said Friday that the technology tracks a driver's eye movement and, in turn, steers the car in whatever direction they're looking."
