At Macworld: AutoPark App- No More Tickets

If you've run up hundreds of dollars of parking tickets, you need this app.  The app sets up an alarm to warn you when your time is almost up at your parking meter. That alone could save you some big bucks, but the app does so much more. You can find where you parked your car using GPS markers. If you're in a parking garage, you can input your level and section.

 I knew someone had reviewed the Joby Gorillapod line either in print or blog, and dug it up here on Heather Dale's site. I also have a fabulous Gpod camera holder/stand for my camera (kids bought it from ThinkGeek) and it doubles as a holder/stand thing for my iPod, and PDAs. It is often handy for taking steady, clear gadget close-ups. Joby just announced an expanded product line at MacWorld, so maybe our folks there can go check em out at booth#1659 – South Hall! I'm too busy back east shoveling snow...sigh!
