Re: I always use my phone for Google's GPS when I'm in California
If you say "California's highway system is hideous" because its ugly, I agree...
But driving all over it is cake and requires no Nav at all.
Something that happened a few days ago:
I was walking down the street, and some woman stood on the sidewalk, looking this way and that, making an impression of being lost. As I drew near, she asked me for help with the following words: "Do you know where number 52 is? My nav said its right here, but this is the wrong number!" I said: "did you check in which direction the house numbers go up or down on this street?" She replied: "no, but my nav said it was right here!!" She looked exasperated, like "how can this nav just be broken..."
So, I had to actually explain to her how to find the house number using her own brain.
And she didn't look like a dull, McDonalds eating, Fluoride contaminated water drinking zombie, to the contrary, she looked bright and educated.
Makes you wonder if we've not gone way too far on our tech craze...
