A potential use for carputers
It would be useful for carputers to have a "report pothole" button on the dashboard. When the driver encounters a pothole, he/she presses the button and the GPS location and direction (giving the side of the road) are reported to the highway maintenance authorities (via 3G connection). There is also the potential for sensors in the car's suspension or shock absorbers to collect data and report automatically. This principle is also applicable to other road issues, for example broken signs, debris on the road, etc.

This blog is a hotchpotch of my thoughts, opinions, reviews, analysis of idioms, and links to articles that I have come across on my travels.
I would like to write a comprehensive philosophy or metareligion, but I haven't got the motivation. Likewise, I would like to write a book analysing sayings, idioms, phrases, quotes etc.
