Looking Out From the Garage: August 2008

Anyone Dash yet?

I've been looking at this GPS unit, the Dash Express

It looks pretty cool.  It has internet connectivity through cellular and wifi networks.  So, instead of having a static list of restaurants or other area points of interest... it can search.  Maps can be automatically updated.  Traffic heat maps are on a whole new dimension. 

It also give three different route choices, their mileage and expected time.  That would be great for me, because I often like to go a slightly different way in order to accomplish something along the way (gotta combine those trips, you know!). 

But... using one is the best way to know about one...

Any users? 

And if you aren't, go wander around the site and see what you think.

Rainbow Fish… Bad for our children.
I'm sitting here watching Barack Obama deliver his acceptance speech. And earlier today, I was thinking about the book Rainbow Fish And they gel. For the person out there that isn't familiar with this children's book, it is about a fish… more
Historic Green…
Everything old is new again… Like electric cars. Think that they are a new idea? Think again. In 1907, the Anderson Electric Car Company (later Detroit Electric) began building electric cars. The range was over 80 miles… in 1907. Of… more

Obama's Housing Plan
It is pretty easy to start out by saying that I am NOT a fan of Barak Obama for President. As I have watched his candidacy unfold, I have noticed it long on rhetoric and short on reality, forethought and responsibility. Yesterday, Inman had… more
