Why can't I cue up several podcasts on soundcloud or a book on audible.com (while stationary) and then listen to them while I drive?
If I can legally interact with a dash mounted GPS (or in-car Nav system), why can't I run a Nav app on my phone and mount it to the dash?
What would be really smart is a way to map some generic steering wheel mounted buttons to controls in the phone's nav app. This could easily be achieved over bluetooth, the same way that handheld Powerpoint presentation devices emulate the PC keyboard and allow presenters to drive their slideshow from the remote.
Steering wheel buttons could get mapped to the Google Maps app for Zoom In, Zoom Out, Volume Up, Volume Down, Mute.
I would love it if Amazon would do more to vet suppliers and eliminate the counterfeit crap.
And apparently I can't remember my own ID! Young whipper snappers...
3569 But it sure isn't what it used to be.
Anyone know how Monoprice USB cables rate? In the past, I felt their products were of decent quality while being budget friendly.
My current problem with Youtube isn't the ads, it's that Youtube runs like crap on my AT&T Uverse connection at home.
I'm sure this is a problem with AT&T and not Youtube, however.
This behavior by the phone makers has had perplexed me for some time now.
Can't they see how bad they're making the phones when they pile on all these crappy mods?
I had a 1200XL, and after updating the ROM, a 256K RAM upgrade, and the video output circuitry, it was every bit as good as the 800XL.
I actually took an XF551 drive modified to use a 3.5" floppy drive mech, and hacked the controller board and drive inside the 1200XL case. The floppy drive was accessible on the right side of the computer via a nice square slot I cut out of the case.
It was pretty darn cool at the time. SpartaDOS was very similar to MS-DOS in terms of a command oriented disk operating system, and I made the leap from my Atari to PC's pretty easily.
I can't believe someone came up with a SD reader hack for them. I'm amazed some people are still hacking them!
See this article on how dimmers work.
You'd need a circuit that detects the average power supplied, as opposed to looking at the voltage level of the rectified peak output. I haven't done EE in like 12 years, so maybe this is simple to do. *shrug*
It sounds like a cool project.
Seriously, does this not seem like Darl McBride is so obsessed with going after "the great white whale" that it's all he can think about, to the exclusion of everything else?
Where and when does it all end?
