    Mobile phone driving bans do not work - Research says drivers are rubbish anyway | TechEye

    Too many people today think they are the only ones that count. I read a few forums and especially on carrier's forum too many are screaming about "MY DATA" and wanting it for nothing. They don't seem to understand that others have a right to data, and if the network is congested, the carrier has to make sure that all are served, so they get throttled. Most heavy users understand this and don't complain. It's just the few. They also drive like that and that pisses me off. No texting doesn't apply to them.

    This should be interesting especially with the public's love of BACON.
    I like soy bacon.

    I can only think about those nights I drive for hours and not pass anyone.

    I cycle to work, so see enough bad drivers on the phone. Some are bad, & some are arrogant, over-confident A-holes. It's usually the ones in expensive company cars! I also deal with truck drivers & their sat nav. I hate sat nav in vehicles. It seems too many people forget to use their brain & let a computer find them the (wrong?) way. They're often late because of weight restrictions or low bridges.

    I'm not surprised by investors ditching facebook. The tide is turning, some of their policies just don't sit right with thinking people. The gullible, self obsessed will still be on it. I swear facebook is turning into faceparty!

    Anyone remember faceparty?

    Soy isn't greasy. I had a vegetarian in the family and started to prefer veggie burgers, etc. At least, no pink slime.

    I don't use android maps or gps. I prefer a print out from an map site on the PC. I can memorize the written word better than I can listen to some jerk who is actually a bit behind my thinking. All I heard was "recalculating" anyway.

    I do use Twitter at times, but don't care to join FB (have account - used for app developers web pages that you can't read otherwise - never posted) I don't need a bunch of stereotyping idiots butting in. This forum is far more interesting. I have other forums for other interests. They mostly stay on target.
