Finally!
 
Google Maps app finally available for iOS
Yes! Yes! YES!

It looks like the app we knew and loved … except now it has added Google local search, voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation, and more.

Download it here:

Yeah, I use an iPhone 4S these days, but I have used and really like Android phones as well. My fav phone is actually Samsung Galaxy III, but I am anti-contract, anti-carrier.

I recently tried Republic Wireless, and would try them again. Cheap service, no contract, Android phone (but unfortunately not Samsung.)

OK, NOW tell me Ashton Kutcher doesn't look like Steve Jobs.

You may have seen the picture of Ashton Kutcher on the left floating around. But you should also know that he was posing for a re-creation of a photo of the real Steve Jobs on the right. 

How amazing is their resemblance?

Check these wheels out!
 

                                    Travertson V-REX
Riding a Travertson V-REX will inflate even the most fragile of egos. Its futuristic design and swingarm front suspension draws attention like nothing else we’ve ever ridden. It looks like a prop from a sci-fi movie come to life. Travertson Motorcycles, which are designed and built in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, construct the wild V-REX around a Harley-Davidson V-Rod motor and use H-D electrics.

Granted, it's only got a 3Mhz CPU and 64MB of RAM, but it's still a complete Linux environment, running in your browser as JavaScript.
 
Javascript PC emulator. Wow. You can boot up Linux in a browser.

Interesting idea, but this would appear to be a kind of video IM, where the messages could be automatically recorded videos as well as text. In another words, not video conferencing per se. But any video conferencing provider (such as Skype, Hangouts, Vidyo) could do the same kind of thing, assuming no patents protecting the idea...
 
If you want to communicate via video, there are plenty of options. Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangout … take your pick. But Vancouver-based Perch has a different idea … one in which video communication is a normal, background constant. No starting and stopping an app, no “phoning” and connecting to another person or group of people, no required synchronicity. Instead, just simple video communication, always available. It’s kind of like a tiny video-...
