Soul of a New Machine

Just received the replacement for Nikki, my GPS unit that was stolen from the impound lot in NYC after the last accident. This is the same GPS that instructed me to make an illegal turn, resulting in the accident, but still, I decided to get the same one. While setting it up, I saw the options for US English and UK English for the speaking voice, so hoping to change my luck a bit, I selected the British accent version. I just hope she doesn't start having me drive on the wrong side of the road.

Did find out that the GPS can be used to display photos, too, so I'll have to figure out the best way to format images and I can use it as a little mini portfolio thing. Woohoo!

Here's a picture inside the soul of Nikki's mechanical exterior, even though it looks a lot like Jessica at the RIC.

Great lighting!

Our GPS voice is John Cleese (Fawlty Towers) If you ever get the option to choose him, do try it. It's really funny.

My GPS with an English voice is called "Emily". She's never steered me wrong but seems jealous of Lu as she is always sending her the wrong way! Fact!
