Michael Axelrod: ‘My new Honda Accord has a navigator, and it’s amazing. I got the car in April and it knew about the recent closing of the Fell Street off-ramp in San Francisco and deftly directed me through city streets to my destination. It seems to know the position of your car to within about five feet. It has an amazing knowledge of the local streets in the Bay Area. It’s also comforting to know that if you day dream a little while driving (who doesn’t), it will remind you of when to turn. One time I made a mistake and turned when I should not have. In less than 20 seconds she said, ‘Make a U turn!”

Quote of the Day
It's unbelievable what happened, said Jack Brod, who has operated Empire Diamond and Gold Co. in New York's Empire State building for over 50 years. When gold was over $700 an ounce and silver over $40 everybody wanted to buy it. Today nobody does.~August 12, 1981 Deseret News
