High-Tech: Honeymoon Global Positioning System (GPS) has finally arrived

On April 1, 2006, two directionally challenged, good friends got married, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. April 1st should give you a great picture of their personalities and what is about to come.

I was the back-up Best Man, titled the Honorary Best Man. I was experiencing a little worry. Alright, I was really worried about the Bride and Groom and the fact that both of them are so directionally challenged. Can you imagine the couple getting lost on their honeymoon night? The honeymoon night is the last place in the world that you want to get lost.

Having worked in a high-tech environment for many years, I began to ponder a solution to the challenges ahead. I noticed the couple had put their gift requests in the Target store gift registry so I took a look. Sure enough, they had requested not one, but two Global Positioning Systems (GPS), so they might always find where they are going. I understand that trying to figure out where you are and where you're going, or where you should be, is probably some of the oldest challenges for humans. Over the years all types of technologies have been designed and developed to eliminate and/or simplify the task for the directionally challenged, but until now, every one of the inventions has had some issues to resolve.

Good news. As of April 01, 2006 the original and coined “Honeymoon GPS” has arrived. It is so new that the patent is still pending. This high-tech solution no longer relies on satellites and electricity power. It has a navigation that will never fail. Happy honeymoon!

Disclaimer: Honeymoon suggests marriage and therefore the Honeymoon GPS only works on that special night. Afterwards, the new couple is on there own.
