'U3 Launchpad' Firmware update 1.6

As I plugged-in my 4GB 'U3' 'Cruzer Micro', I was notified and asked if I wish to install a new version of 'U3 Launchpad'. I did some Online research before I made my decision not to.

Now, my reason for not upgrading this software is the amount of complaints from people who attempted to update their's and ran into problems, rather it be "bricking" their thumb drive or just complaining about the password functionality of the device no longer being there. Knowing all of that, I took the logical approach of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Though I am not Irish, I still celebrate this day. But most of the time it sneaks-up on me, and I tend to get pinched more than I care to. Anyways, I wore a green shirt today.

Damn cell phone drivers; Yes, that includes texting while driving.

One thing aggravates me is people that drive motor vehicles while talking/texting/messing with their phone. I will admit, I have done this before but not that often at all.

You see, when I drive (on a reasonably warm day) I will have my radio on (at a reasonably loud volume), have my right hand on the steering-wheel and my left hand hanging out the driver's side window. I do this to prove to all drivers who can see me, that I am not on a cell phone while behind the wheel.

That way I look at it, talking/texting/messing with a cell phone while driving is as dangerous as drinking and driving.
