1984. Car navigation ten years before GPS was available.
 
"Etak realized that digital mapping was not just an exercise in codifying public spaces and residential addresses. It could provide optimal routes to commercial places as well, and that interested Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch. With this in mind, his firm, News Corporation, bought Etak in 1989 for around $25 million. Soon after, Stan Honey became VP of technology for News Corp."
With backing from Atari's cofounder, an engineer-navigator brought high-tech driving directions to carsduring the Reagan Administration.

Fox News. Failing to tell the difference between fact and fiction since 1996. It's truly frightening that millions of people use it as a source of "news". The story below was a PR campaign by a German legal organisation but Fox still haven't realised.
#foxnews
Everybody handles breakups differently, and a German man has found a hilarious (albeit demented) out-of-the-box way to express his anger with his ex-wife.

"But the EU court ruled that the essential elements of Lego's figures had nothing to do with their ability to join them to other building blocks.

Characteristics such as holes in the feet and legs did not obviously have a "technical function", it said in a statement.

The court therefore upheld Lego's registration of the shape as a protected trademark."

I guess the people in the EU Court have never played LEGO. The holes in the feet and legs DO have a technical function. Anyone who has ever played LEGO knows that. #LEGO  
An EU court rules that the shape of Lego's people figures is a protected trademark, blocking a move by a rival company that wanted to copy them.

The coffee and cake was nice but the prices can only be described as extortionate. The place is a den of thieves and should be avoided. Yes you expect to pay a premium in a tourist hotspot but I felt like I had been mugged when we left. Please avoid at all costs. I can't imagine you will find a more expensive cafe in the whole of Italy.
