Wiley Publishing, the publisher behind the series of Dummies books that take complex subjects and make them easy top understand for readers. Wiley has teamed up with the Maylong Group for their first electronic product in the form of a GPS system.
"We are thrilled to be working with Wiley on the GPS NavigationFor Dummies product," said David Valade, President of the Maylong Group, which is developing the technology. "Wiley was a natural partner for the Maylong Group and our vision of EZ-2-Go™ personal navigation, since the For Dummies brand has been helping consumers understand complex new technologies for years."
The dummies GPS device is intended to be used in cars, RVs, bikes and motorcycles. The CEO of Maylong helped to launch the OnStar network, so it seems they should know what they are doing.
The GPS device itself will feature a 3.5” touch screen and 2GB of memory via a memory card, digital mapping with browsing capability, text to speech navigation, complete maps of the U.S. plus Canada, 2 million points of interest, and a MP3 player and eBookreader. The manual is promised to be easy to use in the tradition of the Dummies series of books. Future updates to the GPS system will see a 4.3” screen and internet-connected content like traffic data and destination information.

Apple's first wearable will not ship until 2015
If true, Apple, as it has always been, must be very confident about its timing. After all, it will be the company's new product from an entirely different category, and people will most likely be patient about it.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
