Other useful stuff:
Sat-nav crime prevention - how to avoid being victim to a crime so easily (satellite navigation shouldn't be an accessory to a crime!)
Starting Handles - a good idea - could be a revival!
Then there's the question of Cellphones, which are much safer with a hands-free kit, which you can get!
I wonder if the famous satellite navigation company Garmin will have a US program to match their UK program.
The English language has changed differently in the United States and Britain, but the divergence of language seems to have occurred more in matters of an automotive nature than in other things. If you think about when cars were invented, after the Boston Tea Party but before widespread international communication through movies and the Internet, it makes some sense. Here are a few examples of car-related terms which have evolved differently in British English and American English:
|Bonnet||Hood||a type of liftable LID over the engine, usually at the front of the vehicle|
|Windscreen||Windshield||a tough transparent glass at the front, through which the driver and passengers can see out in a front-facing direction|
|Fender||any type of wheel surround, regardless of whether intentionally travelling on tarmac roads or on dirt|
|Boot||Trunk||compartment at the rear of the vehicle, used for carrying baggage, (or bodies, in movies)|
|a highly-inflammable fuel which was available before OIL ran out and alternative fuels had to be found|
|Tyre||Tire||air-filled rubber things round wheels, to help make roads seem less rough|
|Rear Door||Tailgate||any kind of aft-facing portal|
|a control lever for changing gear, usually to be operated by whichever hand is nearest the middle of the car|
|Caravan||Trailer||a compact house in a box, for towing, as a means of accommodation that's not fixed to a location|
(although "Lorry" is always HGV, a "Truck" can mean anything from a pickup to an 18-wheeler).
