Microsoft Patents ‘Avoid Ghetto’ Feature For GPS Devices « CBS Seattle

Hello plwhit and all

Thanks plwhit.

Well another piece of evidence showing Bill Gates can be called a "social Darwinist" and it confirms without a shadow of doubt Bill Gates and like minded individuals (We) have the "same" one agenda and "social Darwinist" practices are included.

Where did the (We) come from: http://www.city-data.com/forum/polit...l#post22422008

and link for meaning of: Social Darwinism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Let me say first I am not singling out Bill Gates because he is rich and recognized as a genius by many people but because I love him and we are all in this country called the United States of America as fellow citizens.

It is the duty of a citizen to use his rights "1st amendment" when necessary.

How to use your "1st Amendment" right of the Constitution of the United States of America as an atheist and/or hater of Christianity: http://www.city-data.com/forum/relig...l#post22137770

GPS Devices are technology based on mapping landscape and waterways for navigation. Thus Microsoft has made it a business to understand the terrain. According to the article crime statistics are fed by the police to determine the threshold of being consider unsafe for travel or navigation. American police and the writer of this article are then well versed (trained) in "social Darwinist" and applying their education to the buying public. That also indicts government from local to state to federal level also.

It shows that Bill Gates has learned from the best of the United Kingdom or known as Great Britain.

Before "black people" as "white and other" Americans know their fellow citizens of with a dark hue was introduced in mass to the United Kingdom or Great Britain very eerily similarities of "avoid ghetto" features happen in so-called "white" London.

Youtube video based on I think BBC sources: (if you are Scottish descent you should pay close attention)


The History of Racism - Episode 2 (part 5/6) - YouTube


I learned from this video that the Cockney race, the English country race, and the Scottish race was equal to today's underclass in America and they lived in the rockeries(ghettos), the east ends(ghettos), the melting pots (ghettos) that afflict the horrors on the rest of fine English UK societies.

All in Charles Darwin's time when he walked the earth. The higher classes of England made maps of where these notorious races lived in Great Britain and/or United Kingdom.

In England race and class are interwoven so under the same auspices the same can be said in the United States of America.

America being a melting pot is not a kind word in United Kingdom or Great Britian.

"Social Darwinism" has traveled the waterways from United Kingdom to the rest of the world and now it travels the airwaves from space to my computer.

And now it has return back to the top of Bill Gates and Microsoft crowning achievement.

I think knighthood is in order from the ruling monarchs of United Kingdom and Harvard University too for our American citizen Bill Gates.

From now on any educated person on city-data.com/forums who use the term ghetto is knowingly or unknowingly practicing "social Darwinism" and it's not even American based. How unpatriotic of you.

That's my thoughts on this matter.

Hello Febtober.

Come to think of it, Febtober the "open area" means country based on the Youtube video I supplied of the races who were subject to social Darwinism.

Every feature of Microsoft's GPS has been thought out well in advance.

Bill Gates is a man before his times.

That's my thoughts on this matter.

That's just an example. In Phoenix, there are different factors.
Yeah. Starting with "no lakes".

Exactly..

I have a "test" I use when considering going into an unknown area..or..more often then not..I make note of the following after the fact. A clear indication of areas to bypass next time.

1: Check Cashing Outlets
2: Tatoo parlors
3: "Avoid Mail Fraud"...Have your mail delivered here !!
4: Pawn Shops
5: Add your cautions here. ;-)



IMHO opinion when you make a mental note of these things as you're driving it's pretty clear you're venturing into questionable territory

If you lived or visited Houston, it would be OBVIOUS. In downtown Houston there are many miles of underground tunnels and walkways that keep pedestrians out of the muggy heat. But you would never know exactly how far they go unless you experimented. The same is the case for downtown Cleveland during the winter, there are public buildings you can walk through in the dead of winter to avoid the wind and cold.

But of course you just think its racist and don't even possess the imagination to see how weather routing of pedestrian traffic makes sense. Airhead.

Racist? What in God's name are you talking about?

I understand how routing through buildings makes sense, however I doubt the owners of the buildings would be thrilled with pedestrians using the space that they pay for as a shortcut, with no intention of purchasing anything. Similar to how Starbuck's gets tired of people walking in off the street to use their restrooms without buying anything.

You could argue that it may generate revenue from the odd person maybe making an impulse buy during their shortcut, but I think it should be up to the individual building owner if they want to participate.

I think GPS will be a lot better 10 years from now. Right now I rank it with a certain popular mapper that tends to send drivers the wrong way on a clearly marked One-Way street.
