    Well, Microsoft didn't call it that. The TV station did.

    Yeah I can't find the word "ghetto" anywhere in the patent application.

    No, but it plays "In the Ghetto" if you get close...

    I wonder if the GPS will explode if you drive through some lovely area like Anacostia, East Palo Alto or East St. Louis.

    You really do not need a GPS for that. As Chris Rock said if you are on Martin Luther King Blvd you know you are in a bad neighborhood.

    In 50 yards, turn right.

    In 25 yards, turn right.

    In 10 yards, squeal wheels and turn right FAST.

    BTW, will the baby selling crack on the street corner be one of the local landmarks?
