Custom NFL Paint Jobs

Guess we know who they're rooting for this weekend.

Guess we know who they’re rooting for this weekend.

With Super Bowl weekend staring us in the face we thought we’d talk about die-hard NFL fans.  They’re not hard to spot what with their face-paint, team jerseys, and smack talk (we admit to indulging in some of that, too).  But you know a fan is true to the core when they either tattoo their team’s logo on their bod or paint it on their car (or both).  Here’re some of the fan cars we found.  Do you have one sitting in your driveway?

Let an App Fight Your Parking Ticket for You

fixedDid you hear about this? There’s an app that will fight your parking tickets for you! claims that 50% of all parking tickets are dismissed when challenged. The Fixed app also says it’s assembled a “team of experts that know the parking rules inside-out” to challenge your parking tickets for you. All you have to do is snap a photo of the ticket and answer a few questions. The app will tell you the odds of getting the ticket thrown out and then ask if you want to contest it. Click yes and the Fixed team goes to work. If the ticket’s dropped Fixed charges you 25% of the ticket amount. That’s it. No court time, no attorneys, no taking time off work.

Right now the app’s in test-mode so there’s a waiting list to join. It’s also only being used in the San Francisco Bay area. But, judging by the positive feedback on Fixed’s Facebook page we wouldn’t be surprised to see it pick up speed.


What’s Wrong With My GPS?














It’s tempting to think technology is fail-safe but we all know that’s not the case. So, why is it so surprising when your GPS delivers incorrect information? Don’t freak out! The device may not be broken; Your mapping software may just be out of date.

To fix the problem it’s a good idea to start with your GPS users’s manual. If that doesn’t help visit support pages provided by the US government or The Department of Homeland Security . You can also report the problem to one of the two major mapping companies: Navteq and Tele Atlas. If your GPS is a TomTom device you may be able to make direct changes to the map using MapShare. Good luck!
