Not cool

Tom Keating - VoIP Blog

Another inventor working on behalf of I.B.M. has won a patent for using
cellphone signals to alert drivers of the speed limit on the roads they are
using. Faisal M. Awada's invention uses a Global Positioning System receiver to
detect a cellphone location. It then looks up the speed limit for that location
in a database. The legal speed limit is transmitted to the car driver via his
cellphone speaker or display. The system can also compare the speed limit to the
driver's actual speed, and set off a warning if the driver is speeding. Mr.
Awada, of Round Rock, Tex., won patent 6,515,596.
