Fun fact: GPS uses 10 bits to store the week. That means it runs out... oh heck – April 6, 2019

Point is, if it all goes tits up... I will know where I am, where I am going and how to get there.. Unless I am on a plane, or a boat or in some other place that requires GPS to know where it is at.

I did not say GPS was useless nor am I denying GPS has many uses. I think it is pretty awesome. However, I don't need or use it. It is another thinking bypass for most people. I prefer my thinking NOT to be bypassed.

It seems 63 people missed my point. I am not a sailor. I do not provide location services to others. I don't need GPS.

For a site that is for IT professionals, I am surprised that my post was so misinterpreted by so many.


My faith in the future of IT and the people that will provide services based on IT is now at an all time low.
