GPS technicalities

"outperforming differential GPS by a significant margin"

Real-time DGPS will give you centimetre accuracy, how does this system outperform DGPS?

"drift caused by atmospheric changes"

Discrepancies due to time sync differences between satellite and receiver clocks, arguably, is equally important, and definitely worth mentioning if you start explaining GPS (also uncertainty in ephemeris, satellite geometry and, being pedantic, general relativity)

Ten external battery packs

martin 17

Anker Astro 3

10,000 mAh for £32.99 on amazon. Just took this up Kilimanjaro and kept me in GPS tracking during the day and entertainment in the long dark nights in the tent.

Bit heavy for everyday lugging around, for that I have a spare battery...

Apple gets patent for ‘unlock gesture’

martin 17

Apple copy too, but then it's theirs thereafter

Just seen the new iOS5 Notification Center. Seems very similar to the Android Notification Center. Google travelling through time again and pre-copying Apple's revolutionary and magical devices?

I wonder, in a year's time will Apple sue Google for using something they 'made popular', but Android had been using before Apple?! Surely the US Patent office will agree.
