Asus GPS module teardown

Asus sent an external GPS module for their obsolete broken tablet, so it was time to feel sorry for whoever spent a lot of time designing this & whoever was desperately waiting for the GPS module.

Lawyers have gotten good enough that those kinds of defects now get you sued. The GPS & camera didn't work. The wifi was inferior. Asus designed an external GPS module as compensation, since they couldn't afford to give everyone a new tablet that fixed everything.

It probably uses a serial port over USB protocol straight from the baseband processor, making it difficult to use in any other device.

In other news,

The latest in CPU monitoring got a popup window that shows the CPU usage overlaid on the application of interest. The trick with phone programming is maximizing the screen space, so the apps look horrible but get the most information across.
