If I'm in the car most of the day of course the iPod is with me. Radio here in Denver is horrible, and monopolized by Clear Channel.
One in five use iPod at work: "A British survey has found that upwards of 22% of employees listen to their iPod, or other digital audio player, for up to 3 hours out of the work day. Shocking, isn't it? OK, so this isn't big news but it would seem that 30% of British firms surveyed have banned the use of iPods at the work place.
I'm not sure I could actually do my job without listening to music, but at least on productivity expert warns that listening to music might cause people to work less.
So, readers, does your company ban the use of iPods at work?

I certainly understand Vail, as it's one of our household favourite spots to visit. Breckenridge? What am I missing? The streets are crowded even in the summer and parking is near impossible. It's certainly not a destination on my radar when I want to head to the high country.

At first glance this looks great. If you don't have enough money for a car and do have enough money for a good cell phone, Google's service just might be the answer for you. There doesn't seem to be any logic to the cities in which they are offering service, so if you live in one of them great. The rest of us need to hope our metropolitan area is one of the next on the list.
Last year, Google launched a new service called 'Google Transit'. It was a version of Google Maps that provided directions for navigating public transportation. It was great, but it only covered one city: Portland, Oregon. Google has now added five more cities to the service: Seattle WA, Pittsburgh PA, Eugene OR, Tampa FL, and Honolulu HI.
I'd really hope they'd be meeting even more and apparently not. There is always lots of discussion and arguments regarding how to best address the congestion issues that plague the I-70 corridor from Denver to the west. Yet, no one has come out with a solid proposal or suggestion that the nay-sayers don't immediately dismiss. Hopefully cool, reasonable heads will prevail in this important issue.
