I Won a Box of Nerds from @KenJennings

In the geography quiz he gave I knew that the exclave of Cabinda is administrated by Angola. Woo!

Ken Jennings was here promoting his new book Maphead.  Of course, my favorite map related thing is still the Random Spot Tool that I made for my Random Trips a few years back.

AbulPhone Travels

The above is apparently everywhere I have gone with my phone since July 15th of last year.  Click on it for a larger version.

I know some people are pissed at the fact something like iPhone Tracker exists and that Apple set things up on the phone in such a way that this was possible and did it without warning anybody that their phone was keeping this log by default.

But I think it is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a few months!  Great stuff!

Although, yeah, I guess there should be an option to turn it off.  But I hope they don’t remove it.  I like this feature!  It would be even better if it was full GPS tracking and not just cell towers, but you know, one step at a time!
