"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
Quote of the Day (I really like Pogue's journalism. Here's an example of what makes it great.) 
13th-Dec-2007 07:07 am
G.P.S. didn’t always stand for Global Positioning System, you know. / In the beginning, it stood for the Grunting and Pointing System, used by cave men to indicate the nearest watering hole. By the horse-and-buggy era, G.P.S. had evolved into a different navigation technology: Guidance by Pony Sense. / In the automobile age, G.P.S. came to mean Grumbling by Peeved Spouse. (“Why won’t you just stop and ask?”) - David Pogue, "A Voice to Guide You on the Road," The New York Times
