Is your hippocampus bigger than mine?

Here's an interesting article:

Is GPS ruining our ability to navigate for ourselves?

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/is-gps-ruining-our-...

I'm not sure about how much I agree with; e.g., have the GPS plan a route, study it at home, then drive to the destination without the GPS's help confused

U.S. National Grid Emergency Location Markers (ELMs)

I took one of my horses for a ride last night in the county park equestrian trails and I noticed new Emergency Location Markers. I have no experience with the United States National Grid format. I am sort of curious why they went with that format rather than another. I am sure I will find the answer when I have more time to review the websites on this topic.

Understanding EZ Pass & HOT lanes

Ontario is looking into setting up HOT Lanes. I've never used these in the US and don't know how the system works.

How do they determine you're in the lane and then bill you?

If it's a transponder, does one transponder work in all states?

If EZ Pass is used, does one EZ Pass work in all states?

Is EZ Pass proprietary to one company?

Lithium-ion Batteries: Preserving Service Lifetime

Although I disagree with the author's comment about leaving older technology batteries like NiCD on their chargers (that's what causes the misnamed "Memory Effect" which was actually the result of drying out the electrolyte by overcharging), the bulk of the article is on point, especially as it pertains to today's Lithium-ion batteries.
