Top Gun display for your CAR: Heads-up fighter pilot tech

Mike Goodwin

some cars have had the option of a HUD for a number of years.

I've got one, and always have it enabled. Not having to glance down to check your speed, or to the left/right to check your satnav is much safer.

Its a transparent image that you can see through, so its not like having a normal sat-nav screen in your direct line of sight.

Having a HUD now, I doubt I would go back to a car without one.

Re: Can't replace the battery?

unless they are selling them for less than £10, I totally agree.

Who actually has the thought pattern of "lets put a battery in there that can't be replaced or charged?"

Bluecoat K9

Has anyone looked at using software from BlueCoat, their K9 "home filtering" suite?

http://www1.k9webprotection.com/

"K9 Web Protection is a free Internet filter and parental control software for your home Windows or Mac computer. K9 puts YOU in control of the Internet so you can protect your kids. "

I use BlueCoat ProxySG appliances a fair amount, and this was advertised on one of the courses I went on last year.

I installed it to see what it was all about, but given I'm 23 and have no kids, I don't have a use for it....
