I thought of this years ago but wanted it bigger and mounted in the rear window. I think there might already be such a product on the market.

You can send text messages to the driver behind you?

Gee! I thought the old fashioned way of using hand signals was good enough...and probably much safer than fumbling with some sort of electronic keypad. Happy

Some messages would be presets...

Guaranteed to increase road rage incidents immensely.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
