Thanks for sharing!

Google Maps Grand Canyon Hiking Trails

Google and its street-view cameras already have taken users to narrow cobblestone alleys in Spain using a tricycle, inside the Smithsonian with a push cart and to British Columbia's snow-covered slopes by snowmobile.

I guess I am confused. Can someone please tell me what makes the iphone any better than all the new Android phones out there. My son and daughter in law both have the new iphone and I cannot see where it is any better than their sons Android phone.

What happened to laptopgpsworld.com?

Since some of the same people post on here, I am wondering if anyone know what happened to laptopgpsworld.com because except for the the main page, the website has been inaccessible for several weeks.

About a week ago I saw a link on the main page about server problems, but that link would not open.

Attempts to log in result in a perpetual spinning wheel.

Fabric & Sewing Machine Stores

Hi,

I am a person who sews. I don't quilt. Does anyone have a lead on a poi for fabric stores? I saw the one for quilting stores, but they often don't carry garment or home decorating fabrics. I am specifically looking for New England and the Northeast down to Mid-Atlantic areas.

Thanks.

Android Tablet to the Rescue

we are currently on a road trip. Went to take a picture and realized that I did not know how to modify the camera configuration. After getting back to the motel I was able to download the camera manual!

Also, as an amateur radio operator, I also have my radio manuals on the tablet. Having manuals on the tablet as PDF documents is very helpful.
