Perfect for my Son! iNap!

You know young people - stay awake all night and sleep on someone else's dime. Maybe this can get some work out of him! Now if it could just wake me when I get to the chorus...

iPhone and iPod Touch Application List » iNap:
"iNap is a 'next-generation' travel alarm. Using the GPS in your iPhone it will determine where you are, and wake you when you are close to your destination! Using the integrated user-friendly Google Maps you determine your destination by typing in an address, city, train-station etc. And you are ready to take a nap!"

Going too far?

Here's an (arguably) nifty musician tool: 4 tracks of recording for your iPod.

Now, I'm old enough to remember the days when the cool thing was a Teac 4-track reel-to-reel. If you had one of those in your home stereo or studio, you were really something. But now, that same functionality (and much more, actually) can be had in an iPod.

I dunno, there just seems to be something too convenient about humping a 4-track around with you all the time...

Geting the Flu?

Google has a nifty tool to let you track the location of the flu on a state-by-state basis.

What is the flu?

Influenza (the flu) is a serious contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. Millions of people in the United States get the flu each year. Most people are sick for about a week. Some people (especially young children, pregnant women, older people, and people with chronic health problems) can get very sick and may die from the flu.
