This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI
This topic is directed towards Miss POI. I used to be a fairly active member of the forums contributing discussion as well as poi files to the site. Since then I got a smart phone and hardly ever use my computer anymore which is where I did all of my poi factory activities.
The AFLAC duck was voiced by Gilbert Gottfried. He was fired by AFLAC for making insensitive jokes about the Tsunami in Japan. They are looking for a new voice.
Also it is not his real voice. It's an act. His real voice is actually very low and mellow. Google his name and "Howard Stern" and view the YouTube clip of him speaking in his 'real' voice.

I was reading a news article about about the progress of a bill in the Alabama legislature that proposes to ban texting while driving. On page 2 of the article, the author reported the following:
“On Jan. 1, 2010, in Colorado a law banning the manual entry of data into electronic devices while driving went into effect.
Can anyone recommend a reliable and speedy GPS repair facility?
I dropped my 3 mo. old Tom Tom and the screen cracked.
Several years ago there was some discussion on the POI Factory forum about celebrity voices for the GPS and Gary Busey's name was mentioned. Well, for better or worse it's happened.
Wire service story:
I figured I'd start a thread on damge due to the multiple situations happening in Japan. I haven't heard anything yet about chip manufacturers or suppliers yet, but my expectation is that there may be shortages and price increases for all electronics in the near future.
If anyone finds more information along these lines, please post the links.
Here's the scenario:
I was at Chattanooga, Tn. and had to plan a route to Vernon, Ca.
From reading the forum, I discovered that the GPS would not automatically adjust as I crossed time zones.
Now, when I was close to my destination, and I had my GPS set to EST before I left and did not change the time setting, I found that I was going to arrive at my stop in 2 hours.
I was searching the internal POI file on my 1490T for a few local restaurants that I have already added manually. I did this so I could use the Feedback feature built into the unit.
