Wikipedia In Your Pocket, $99

Quay42 My iPod Touch version of this (412 comments)

Probably many have done the same, but here was my version of this on the iPod Touch (requires jailbreak, or did at the time)

Also, a script to convert it to a more iPhone ish LNF (http://quay.wordpress.com/2007/11/17/iphone-native-look-and-feel-wikipedia/)

Most likely I wouldn't have done this if I had an iPhone originally, as it more generally has access available to it.

(Near) Constant Internet While RV'ing?

Quay42 Re:Exactly the opposite (438 comments)

My wife and I came very close to doing that this year. I worked from home and she didn't work. And since we live in LA, it turns out that it would be cheaper to travel in an RV (considering both the RV mortgage, nightly camp fees, insurance, etc). In the end we opted to not (we have a young daughter), but I still think it's a great idea for someone who has that freedom.

We also wrestled with the Internet issue and was most likely going to go with Verizon broadband, as the satellite option is quite expensive.

Gene Therapy Cures Color-Blind Monkeys

Quay42 Egads, homeopathic Google ad in the RSS feed (197 comments)

I was saddened to see an add for Homeopathic "medication" in the RSS feed for this article. Obviously the editors don't have direct control over the Google Ads, but should be a way for certain things to *not* show up on a science and technology based site. Homeopathy is most definitely not science.
