iphone gps, where am i? and $40/hr?

Ginny and i found ourselves amused with the “where the hell am i” (as we call it) on the iphone..
what a nice feature in google maps… which speaking of.. Google anounced an update to Android.. fit with a media player and a geocoding api… mobile computing is going to be big stuff if you campare the number of laptop owners worldwide vs the number of cell phone users…so after tinkering around a bit.. i found a way to ssh into the phone using jailbreak.. (note…the method may prevent installation of official third-party applications that will be created by the forthcoming iPhone SDK (software development kit) from Apple)…and now i want to install the knowitall tool of the century since this is the information age after all… wikipedia at my fingertips all the time.
