we run a post office elastic band collection company

we respond to calls from members of the public as and when these red rubber bands are spotted and we then collect and recycle them.

we would certainly be looking to use your system as it sounds like the adaptive routing could be tailored to locate "rubber band hot spots" where prolific offenders could be stalked and possibly shot dead on the spot with the forthcoming labour littering law ammendments.

Using an intelligent learning agent the software adapts to your driving style and will avoid roads that you avoid.

It can also 'learn' that certain roads are slow at certain times of the day.


neither of which would be rocket science to implement.

If you had said that the voice giving the instructions was that of Charlotte Green then you might have got a few buyers!

April fool - sound more like a wish list to me!

The rediculous thing is that the ficticious product described could possibly be produced, and is what people want and need. Yet no-one makes it.

If not possible now (the learning driving styles may be beyond the current hardware's capacity) it may be nearer than many think.

That would have been useful for the Light Brigade at Balaklava, probably...

BTW, my great-great-great was in Crimea with the expedition form the Kingdom of Sardinia...
