…right now, if we weren’t sandwiched between Expand (and all its hefty post-mortems) and the huge sprawling beast that is CES. Whoa people, it’s November. Movember, to some. That means the holidaze are right around the corner, followed by a whole new year of optimism and hope for the glorious Kum-bay-ah future in which we magically solve climate change, our dwindling fossil fuel supply, poverty, disease, ignorance, sexism, racism, and all the other -isms and ISISes of the world whut need fixing.
See, we’re Fixers. We didn’t mean to sell our souls — it just became too lucrative to avoid doing so. In fact, some might say it’s the price of admission to the Finer Things in Life these days — that’s inflation for you. A requirement in a democratic capitalist society that barely functions as a democracy and over-achieves as a great big skulking capitalist orc slavering cruelly over the next demographic mark: first, poor and middle class people...

When iOS 6 hit the ground running, a swift, desperate cry arose from iPhone users around the world. The Google-powered maps application went missing, replaced with a much less effective Maps app by Apple.
Oh, sure, the new Maps boasted plenty of attractive features that made it sound good. But the reality is that the new Maps gave bad directions, difficult directions, and even some downright wrong directions.
You can get it back, though. It’s fast and easy to put Google Maps right back on your iPhone or iPad in a few easy steps, using iOS 6’s new Add to Home Screen feature.
1. Open Safari
2. Navigate to maps.google.com3. Click the Share button on your browser.4. Select Add to Home Screen5. Confirm the name. By default, iOS will call it Google Maps.
And that’s all it takes. Now you can touch the Google Maps icon to bring up the web app right from your home screen.

Because I’ve had to look this up so many times now in some obscure forum somewhere, thought I may as well post the Incoming Server settings you want to use to set up a Google Apps mail account in the Email app on an Android device:
User name: firstname.lastname@example.org (i.e., your full email adress on your Google apps domain)
POP Server: pop.gmail.com
SSL : checked
You’ll need to enable SSL on the Outgoing Server details page also if it’s not already selected.
