Copyright Infingement?

Frequently a forum topic will include copy from a news article and / or a link to the article. I'm wondering if doing this is a violation of copyright law.

I don't mean this to be a criticism and I'm certainly not an attorney. I raise the issue only in the hope that we are not jeopardizing POI Factory.

Scenic Byways and Land Slides in last few days

Last week heavy rains (up to 9 inches) caused many land slides in the Smoky Mountain Region. 30 plus slides in Swain and Graham county alone. The good news, the roads are still intact with most of them. However, there are couple major slides and closures.

Yehey! Last January 7th, I achieved my 5th year! Looking forward for more years.

How does "skip" work?

Every now and then I find a thread in one of the forums that receives a lot of posts but has absolutely zero interest to me.

When I pull up my "unread posts" page, I see the various threads (not counting the entire forums that I've already "hidden") including the thread that I have no interest in reading or following.

Voice file download option from Garmin Express

I have a garmin c530. I downloaded Garmin express and it gave me the option to download several voices files. When I download the files onto my garmin they're not there? Any suggestions? I open up my garmin on my PC and it shows that the files are in the voice folder. Is my garmin compatible?

feel free to email me with solutions?

Yahoo Mail Secure Access

About 10 years ago I asked Yahoo support if they offered full time secure webmail access (https). The answer I got was a boiler plate response, how to securely login to Yahoo. Problem was we got redirected to unsecure or http site after logging in. Anyone with the right tool can sniff out the traffic and hijack our unsecured connection.

Ohio's New Texting Ban

Beginning Jan. 1st, law enforcement officers are authorized to issue citations for Ohio's new texting ban. The bill was signed back in July, but didn't go into force until Jan. 1st. The law states that it is against the law for anyone less than 18 years old to use any electronic wireless device, in any manner, while driving.

GPS on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

The latest Samsung unit offers GPS routing using Maps App and Google provides a beta version with voice guidance and street level views. Wow!!!!

I have not followed a route yet but it was surprising to see it on the Tablet.
