Black Friday / Cyber Monday - 2012

Thanksgiving is on the radar now, and I've started thinking about shopping for some holiday deals. So, I figure it's about time to start up the yearly thread for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Any great deals you find interesting are fair game. It's okay to go beyond GPS and to chat about items you hope to find. (This year, I'm looking to snag deals on a ~40" TV and a garage door opener smile )

Not POI related - Linux Opinion

Nothing to do with POIs here. Since winter is coming I was looking for an indoor project to keep me busy (when not shoveling snow). I thought I would experiment with learning Linux. From a little searching yesterday it looks like Fedora or Ubuntu are popular versions. I will be installing it on a home desktop computer as a dual boot and I'm not worried about any server applications.

Change your clocks - change your bateries

It's that time of the year again... back to Standard Time... so - sometime today, while thinking about changing clocks before bed - take the time to change the batteries in any electronic gadget you rely on to monitor your - or your family's health and protect safety... things like Fire & CO detectors... glucose meters and those kinds of things.

Enjoy the "extra hour" of sleep...

In danger of losing your windmill?

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

Google and its street-view cameras already have taken users to narrow cobblestone alleys in Spain using a tricycle, inside the Smithsonian with a push cart and to British Columbia's snow-covered slopes by snowmobile.

I guess I am confused. Can someone please tell me what makes the iphone any better than all the new Android phones out there. My son and daughter in law both have the new iphone and I cannot see where it is any better than their sons Android phone.
