I have finally settled for a GPS system for the car – and for the city trip etc. First choice was TomTom. They offer both a “device” solution and a PDA solution. Not that I really need a PDA, but it makes the whole system more mobile, i.e. I can use not only with the car, but also on the bike and/or for walking.
One big annoyance was the fact that the CD’s did not come with a Mac installer! I searched on TomTom’s web site to no avail. Their support pages are very poor to say the least. Anyway, I finally found out, that they have do have a Mac installer.
Pick it up here.
This is the version 1.0.4. TomTom might provide you with something better in the future
I am currently putting the maps onto the PDA (T5). It takes ages to upload the maps. I managed to get Italy on it, but as I am not living in nor currently in Italy it is a bit difficult to test the setup with that map. Now the Alps are hotsyncing, and so far it has taken several hours to hotsync the 185 MB to the PDA . France, Benelux, Germany and Scandinavia is still to come…
Your mobile phone camera can be more than a fast way to send your kitty photos to Grandma Pearl. Like a lot of people, I use mine as a ubiquitous capture device, recording ephemeral information and visual documentation wherever and whenever it’s needed.
Lots of good ideas for a useful use of your camera phone, and not necessarily what you would except
So it is official now. I wonder what service to turn to now? Gizmo? I would not be surprised, if the Skype services would deteriorate and at the same time become more expensive to use (4.1bn to scrape in…).
The first thing that will happen is probably that the application will become Windows only…
New version 184.108.40.206 is out! Chat with 50 people at the same time?!? Not! But I’m sure that the app will behave even better

How about letting your international customers provide help to the victims of Katrina via a link in their local iTMS?
You could also allow them to “purchase” via the US store (currently not possible, I tried). Instead of sending them back to their own store again, do redirect them to the American Red Cross page.
