Why not a smartphone app that hooks into the mapping/GPS/nav services, shows a large flashing arrow and reads out navigationally with vocal commands via a bluetooth earphone?

Yeah, it could even have voice recognition capabilities so that you can speak to it and ask it how to get to location XYZ.
I should go patent that before someone else .... aw dammit!!

So in violation of /. convention, I went ahead and read TFA in hopes that were would actually be something more than "we solved yet another parallel computing problem with GPUs." Nope, nothing. Not even some useless eye candy of a graph showing two columns of before/after processing times.
