Someone thought my nabobism on the city's iBurgh
App reflected some anti-App feelings.. or anti-Apple or something like that. Not in the least. I really do own an Apple Newton. I admit I would take bids if anyone wants to buy it for a price reflective of the venererable antique that it is, but won't dream of parting with it if you offer me paperweight values. Seriously, no anti-Mac feelings at all. I can prove deep Mac roots. Plug in "macintosh personal computer" into the keywords here
But on Apps that have been working, I didn't realize that Routeshout is now an app as well as being a cell phone text interface. I think they even have a new website: http://www.routeshout.com/
. Check it out. better yet, test it out
if you are one of the routes it is implemented on.
(I'm told it is implemented on all routes... so there) Someday the Port Authority will stream out real time GPS positions from their buses (I can dream) that will allow Nathan and company to take their stuff to a new level.. but for now it still does a yeoman's job if you need a bus schedule on the fly. Check it out
. Should be some news stories on that.
