Vosteran Search

I bet it would be pretty annoying to open your browser and see that your homepage is not your homepage anymore. I have this Vosteran Search at hand at the moment, and even though I can see that it’s not much a big deal, I guess it can still make people sweat because it’s just THAT annoying.

And now I’m here to help you out remove it.

First, self-driving was probably one of the things in the show. I mean, who wouldn’t want to sit down and relax while your car just… drives itself for you? Apparently, Kitt was able to drive itself without any problem because he (it?) had an auto collision avoidance technology implemented. It might not work like magic, just like it did in the show, but nowadays most of the newest commercial cars do come out with auto collision avoidance devises. As far as the European Union is concerned, they are aiming to equip ALL new vehicles with such a device by 2015. W00t. Continue reading
