Having been an avid traveler since the days of dial up internet and the original "Rick Steve's - Europe Through the Back Door", I can't help but thank the late Steve Jobs for blessing my life with the iPhone and the incredible mobile app. In my college years I recall trudging through the streets of Seville in search of a pay phone, ten pound travel guide with fold out maps in hand. As my fair skin rapidly morphed from white to red and sweat beaded down my face, I called out to the God's praying for an easier way to travel. Five years later, Apple introduced the iPhone and my prayers were answered.
I'm looking forward to iOS 6, which will be coming out this fall. I'm traveling right now and have been using the current Maps app extensively. It will be interesting to see how Apple's forthcoming Maps app works in comparison. I'm hoping that it'll have all the features I like in the current app, and more. And according to the latest rumor from Bloomberg, one new feature will be Yelp check-ins. This is Yelp's social location-sharing feature that's similar to the popular Foursquare.

Over a year ago I was off the main taxi routes in the outskirts of downtown San Francisco. I asked my client to call a taxi so I could return to my hotel. As has become so common these days, he suggested offer me this courtesy, but that I download an app. That app was Uber.
So I downloaded the app, created an account and added in my credit card information.
