Here’s something you haven’t seen until recently: a name-brand dashcam, Pioneer ND-DVR100.

Here's an embarrassing but true revelation: My sense of direction is less than optimal. That has led to many conversations like this one some years ago with my co-pilot, who thought GPS was for sissies, especially in L.A., which he knew well. Him: Where are you going? Me: I'm going to the tile store. Him: In what state? Me (glaring): In California, you (fill in pejorative term here). Him ...
