I know a hard working, idealistic young doctor from Long Island NY who went to Africa two weeks ago to try and help. He came back very disillusioned, stymied at every attempt to treat patients there by government officials. He told me his parents were very afraid he would become sick and didn't want him to go, but this man feels he has a higher calling to treat the sick, higher than making money. A good man who I'm proud to know.

Such as? I have never had that happen. Can you provide a link to an app that does this?

Try to download. the free Uber taxi app without a payment method connected to your GooglePlay account. You'll get a popup screen asking you to review your account. I have seen the same thing with games that are listed as "free" that won't download unless you have a payment method connected to your gmail account.

So you screwed around with peoples accounts, huh? Aren't you proud of yourself.

Where is your goddamn morality? Just because you "can" do something does not give you the "right" to do it.

Ah, I might as well be replying to a wall. People like you just won'tever get why you shouldn't do some things.

I had the cheaper $99 Nuvi at first, and yeah, the UPS connector broke at the circuit board from it gettin pulled on by the wire. I treat this one more carefully and try to never stress the wires, especially since the charger cord has an HD FM Traffic receiver built into it. Oh, and it has a regular glass screen, no gorilla glass, that did crack from a 2 foot fall to the concrete. Still works fine over a year later, it's if I look at it from the side the crack makes it look like there's another road.

I drive a cab in the metro NY City area, a dedicated GPS is the right tool for my job.

How nice. I suppose you want to dictate what the rest of us used because your Garmin is handy for a NYC cabbie? Thanks for the input.

Just my advice, boyo. There's two good things about advice. It's free, and you don't have to take it.

I drive a cab in the metro NY City area, a dedicated GPS is the right tool for my job. GARMIN MV3590 LMT (Lifetime Maps/Traffic) is my reccomendation. I have no time to screw around with online maps and their inherent issues, I need to get where my fares need to be. AA quality, updated GPS does this.

Crack open your wallet and spend $300 on this Garmin and you'll have noticed you have less problems, and the voice recognition software gets it right over 90% of the time.

Crap, that is the 1st link. I saw Lincoln stand up and speak at Walt Disney World back in 1973, and it was amazing to see, for the time. People in the audience thought it was a human actor. To learn from the Ars article how all his movements were synced up on a master audio tape was interesting. Amazing tech for the time.
