I Wish My Car Had A...

ramunas Missing option (789 comments)

Minimizer, so that I can put the car in my pocket instead of paying for parking and worrying about how someone might break a window or steal it.

I have almost the same thing - I have no idea what the home page for any of my browsers is - as I usually have one or two open, and most can remember the session anyway.

Will Google and Android Kill Standalone GPS?

ramunas Re:Android GPS - works for US only (439 comments)

Well it works best for US, and other large countries where data plans don't become the main issue when going somewhere interesting in the sense that you might need to use your gps device.

The reasons why it fails to be of any use to me and most people who live in similarly sized countries are given in the original post :)

Will Google and Android Kill Standalone GPS?

ramunas Android GPS - works for US only (439 comments)

Here's my problem with the android GPS, and for that matter with cell phone google maps - it all works perfectly when you live in a huge country, and where the possibility that you might need to use the navigation features offered by GPS without ever leaving the country is fairly large - hence you are not really worried about the data charges, since you are using the same operator.

BUT. If like me, you live in a small European country, where within the country there is practically no need for the GPS because you know most of the country by heart. Thus the only reason for using a car GPS navigation is when you leave the country. But that's exactly the moment the huge roaming data charges begin to apply. Therefore the only practically viable option unless you don't care how much you spend on your phone costs is by using an offline solution like a Tom-tom or Garmin device.

In fact - it looks like it's some marketing ploy - Tele2 Latvia, has sent out invitations to media regarding the company's ties to the "meteorite".

Well the hoaxiness of the incident is currently actively discussed. We'll know more when some actual scientists get to look at the thing. Meanwhile it's nice to be in the headlines for another reason than the economic meltdown.
