Technology does not make the user smarter

So GPS now means you can find anything, anywhere… but it does seem that trying to create a shortcut around having to look at maps and learn some basic geography doesn’t really work, as this couple trying to find Capri found:

"Capri is an island. They did not even wonder why they didn’t cross any bridge or take any boat," said a bemused tourism official in Carpi.

Do me a favour, when you need to get somewhere, learn the area, you found your way around before GPS, you can still do it, and someday that will come in handy.
