Multimap was acquired by Microsoft, meaning I'm now an employee of the big MSFT. Wowza, where did that come from?

I've just spent the last week getting very excited about a software update for my favourite piece of hardware. New features, UI improvements, all downloaded from the comfort of my living room, via iTunes, to my... phone. My phone?! When did I give a crap about software on my phone? Strange times we live in, huh?

Ed parsons is saying extraordinary things about Open Street Map. "Mapping data needs to be comprehensive", which is like saying "We need world peace". Yes, we do! Fortunately, he talks some sense when it comes to the BBC's streaming iPlayer which rocks and has really screwed up my New Years plans of getting a few early nights.

Happy New Year to everyone.
