You're such a troublemaker.

I've never said that the product wasn't useful. In fact, I miss not being able to use it.

Since your tax money helped fund it, can you be denied use for petty reasons? Perhaps time to contact someone at dhs?

Re: Cool new android app

I'll only use it once it's available on Google glasses so I don't have to hold my phone up any more. And I want it linked to my fly-by-wire boat controls so I can just look where I want to go and make the boat go there, auto-trimming the sails as it does it.
In fact I'll just fit cameras to the boat and watch from home, saves me getting wet.

I certainly do to see using the social networking aspect while sailing.

If you do not like it then fine, you do not have to use it but do not disparage others for using it. Yes, we get it, you like to do things the old fashioned way.
Nope, more then happy to use new technology. But you will find, once you get out here that the new technology has it's limitations, and will get you in big trouble in a hurry. Get just a little further away and all the social networking things don't work any more. You actually have to have live, face to face encounters.
Funny I read a business story how the younger generation was having to be trained on how to use the telephone.

There are consultants, charging 1800 bucks a day to coach the younger folks on effective communication skills on the phone and in person.

Yep, some of the old ways still work. Look up once in awhile, you may see the sun set.

Just a few more West Marine vouchers and your there. Go-Pro with a blue tooth enabled NEMA connection and a splitter between the AP/throttle linkages should solve most of the technical issues. I'll trade you the x-ray glasses for those Barient winches when we meet up in Bangkok. There will be no augmented reality in Pat Pong. Apps are out too, the gals prefer it in person. The real deal. Live. Bring your raincoat as it will be wet. If you need help getting to your hotel Susie Wong will escort you.

Cheers!

Eh?

Sorry. Andrew's talking about Active Captain. I shouldn't have brought that here.

Re: Cool new android app

here's what you're about to do with this app....

Public Information

Any and all information that is provided by users to Smart Chart AIS applications, servers, or web sites is done so at
the user's risk, and is considered public information for all legal purposes. If you do not want to share this information
with the public, then it should not be entered into the Smart Chart AIS system. By entering information into Smart
Chart AIS you grant TSI the right to share this information without restriction.
A primary benefit of Smart Chart AIS is its ability to enhance safety and situational awareness by sharing vessel
locations, identities, and related information. Therefore, certain information you provide will be shared with other
Smart Chart AIS users and is inherently "public" in nature. Other information, such as text messages or pictures
intended for use only by user-selected recipients is treated by TSI as "private" in nature, and will not be openly shared
with the public. Lastly, users may select whether to share certain information with the public, for example,
smart-phone users may choose whether or not to make visible a cell phone number associated with a particular
username or ID. Users are reminded that while TSI will use its best efforts to maintain privacy for certain types of
information, any and all information that is provided by users to Smart Chart AIS applications, servers, or web sites
is done so at the user's risk, and is considered public information for all legal purposes

Re: Cool new android app

Wally, I don't see how any of that's unusual in this day and age. As with anything internet-related, don't post what you don't want others to know. Period.
