    Twice this month drivers using Apple Maps for directions have wound up on a runway at Fairbanks International Airport in Alaska, thanks to a glitch in the app that affects newer devices. Honey -- doesn't this road seem a little wide to you? Thankfully, nobody was hit by an ai... / Continue →

    Because this is the sad world we live in, New York has begun repurposing 91 of the state's Park-N-Ride lots and rest stops to include "text stop" signs so motorists know they're a safe place to pull over and text instead of doing it while driving. Of course, if you actually ne... / Continue →
