And don't you love how the new store finder?  And they added in just a new tab to connect the relevant payphones if they have WiFi on them or not.  All leveraged using Google Fusion Tables :)

Feel pretty proud that I managed to get that one off the ground and pointing the digital folks in the right direction on the right way to map the data.

freitasm: Yes, saw this yesterday. Nothing in Hawkes Bay though.

But there is going to be a COW in Waimarama this summer... Which I am pretty happy about.

Put the device down, step away, and go spend time with your family away from technology. It's handy to know there's a hotspot in Wanaka so I can look for information about bush walks and such on my tablet, catch up with the news occasionally, etc.
