If they are hardened, chaff or some other form of physical blocking would easily silence the gps system in
a given area. Or..just deploy a more powerful clone system with misinformation. I am sure there are many
ways to disrupt the current system.
I remember loran from my early ham radio days (50's and 60's). It made a hell of a noise on HF. It probably would not
bother anyone any more as the hf frequencies are not utilized as they once were.
Sounds like an excellent idea as the gps system is very vulnerable.
Battery life and user experience are the goals. My Motorola X has the best user experience I have had. Far better than the iphone 4s and Samsung s4.
Both Google and Apple have the cloud integration (not sure about Microsoft as I have not tested). I expect automotive electronics will augment or replace some of the smartphone mobile functions.
I do not like these patent suits. I actually have a patent but made nothing on it as I worked for the government at the time.
We patented the device I worked on so someone could not duplicate it and keep us from making it for our own use.
Patents should have never been allow to descend to the level (software nuances ) of these disputes. If Samsung didn't actually
steal the code, then how is it different than amd/intel disputes of the past?

There is no way the gov. authorities could have prevented the problem. Business and schools let out early and created a huge traffic problem and temperatures dropped well into the 20's (F). All most all roads despite traffic became iced over. The city and state did not possess enough sand, salt to cover the affected areas besides by this time there were abandoned cars and trucks. It took my daughter 7 hours to go about 10 miles from work to home mostly due to blocked streets and jammed up traffic.
I have tried what you suggest using both Ubuntu and Debian. I used one of the AR5212/AR5213 HP pci cards however if your laptop
will work in the master mode you should be able to use it. I also have a Mikrotik router as someone else suggested. The
hostapd solution is not as good as the Mikrotik even though I both are running high power. In my case it is probably the antenna placement.
There are plenty of hostapd howto's on the net.

I would recommend Debian and Gnome. Ubuntu has too many bells and whistles and it can be funky to
setup using bleeding edge kernels and drivers.
Another alternative is Centos 6.2. It's essentially Red Hat. The desktop is quite nice. I expect you would
learn more with Debian though.
Nascar should not have tried to suppress the video. If you look at their new website, it is obvious they don't
know much about electronic media. The website is awful. Maybe the art of web design is lost?
Surely they could have done better.
I have struggled with the same. I have put dd-wrt on a couple of clones and ending up bricking them with updates or modifications.
I have two suggestions. Mikrotik has just come out with a high power ap / router for under $100 bucks. Their routeros is linux
based and the new ap/router has a usb port also.
I have had good luck running hostapd on a linux server. I presently use one of the high power (EPI-3601S) available from Amazon or Newegg and the
latest version of Ubuntu server edition. Works great however, this card doesn't have wireless N.

The monitor on the left, labelled as a PC that uses a 'standard graphics card,' is displaying a Windows desktop that's washed out and blurry. The seemingly identical Dell TFT on the right, powered by a 'high-end graphics card,' is showing the same desktop – but this time it's much sharper and more vivid. They're both outputting at the same resolution."
