    How the CarPC Saved Christmas!

    Here is the untold story of How the CarPC saved Christmas:


    Twas the night before Christmas, when out in my car
    The circuits were buzzing, even wireless from afar
    The wiring was tucked away nice and neat
    With the USB hub, hidden under the seat.

    When out in the yard I heard such dismay
    Some swearing and cursing, Santa had lost his way
    His navigation was failing was said sorta quip
    He was using outdated MS Streets and trips.

    with Santa explaining He had just had enough
    I ran in the house to gather some stuff
    First a power supply, rated 12 volts you see
    As the Sleigh had no means for 110 volt AC

    Then with a case for his new SleighPC
    and lots more goodies, to help set Santa free
    then on with a touchscreen, at ten inches wide
    to put in his dash, to really pimp out his ride

    I returned with an armful of parts from afar
    as They had all been purchased from MP3Car
    the wires I ran for his new fusion brain
    to turn on the wipers when it started to rain

    Then on with Skype to install in a flash
    so he could coordinate with Mrs. Clause right from the dash.
    I loaded the drive with custom media you see
    as tons of Christmas music there just had to be.

    Then on with the sensors to help him to park
    not to close to the chimney, but just on his mark
    To the back of the sleigh I attached the GPS Puck
    With a clear view of the sky, to ensure a good lock

    Then I turned on the power to this new SleighPC
    and a splash screen of Road Runner now filled screen
    Now Santa was so occupied with his new pimped out ride
    that I left him alone, and went back inside.

    moments later I heard, as he steered out of sight
    "Turn left in 100 meters", echoing through the night.

    You didn't read very closely, I built one for him hahha, and I even used a Fusion Brain in the setup (I won't tell him it was the out dated 3.0 version if you don't )
