Hump Day

Well Monday and Tuesday are now behind us, and if you look just over that noontime hump and just beyond a photo flashback, you can see the dawn of another weekend. This week is starting to go by pretty quickly.

I swear I am going to have to find myself a theme for Wednesday Blogs, they are usually the most difficult ones to write. It's the middle of the week, nothing is usually going on other than starting to make plans for the weekend and it is hard to find material to write about on these days.

Apple introduced the new IOS 6 that is scheduled to come out this fall. One of the things I am excited about is the new mapping feature (I know I'm a geography geek). They are going to get away from Google maps and Apple is going to use their own state of the art mapping service that will debut this fall with the release of the iPhone 5. It will have higher resolution imagery and in many larger cities have 3d images of buildings including their real sides. Google earth uses a program called Sketch Up to design buildings in their software, what Apple is going to do as well as Android is pretty state of the art and will impress any geographer or cartographer.

Hi ho hi ho
