When GPS Gets You Lost

I’ve been hearing stories for years about excessively literal-minded people getting themselves in terrible trouble by paying too much attention to their GPS units.

I also once worked with somebody who would regularly call into the office with the complaint that their GPS had succeeded in making them lose their way.

The story reported on Yahoo’s tech blog here (http://bit.ly/lEXUH) is a pretty good one though.

Almost as good as the guy that went off the autobahn, across a field, and smashed his 7-series BMW into a porta-potty.
