As blizzards and the like bear down on the nation, sometimes traveling can get a little dicey, and it can be easy to lose where you're at. Granted, you could probably just pull over and open a map, but why not let your iPhone do that for you? We highlight two apps that are the leaders, Navigon's MobileNavigator North America, and TomTom's U.S. & Canada app.
There are already plenty of capable VNC apps for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, but there’s a new kid in town called Screens, and it’s making friends quickly thanks to a superior touchscreen experience like never before.
Sure, the folks at Sling finally have an iPad version of SlingPlayer Mobile waiting in the App Store to gobble up your $29.99, but that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten their original iPhone version, which has just hit version 2.0.
The Verizon iPhone may still be a shot in the dark, but according to a new job posting on the Apple website, the company may be looking to put the iPad on the Verizon network. This position will be a full-time job, with a location in Cupertino.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year--that is, until you have to fight your way through 12 months of knots and brave the cold so that Santa knows to stop at your house for some cookies. Of course, it’s just not Christmas without lights, and it’s just not Mac|Life without a few iPhone apps to help you deck your halls and keep everything calm and bright.
It seems like only last week that an official Google Latitude app landed in the App Store (at least in Japan), and then vanished just as quickly as it came. No one knows for sure why, but the good news is that the app is back and ready for your downloading pleasure.

Very few things will get me out of bed before 5am. Okay, aside from snowboarding, nothing will get me out of bed before 5am. But getting up before the crack of dawn requires a plan. A plan that needs to be mobile and should be as fluid as possible.
Before I even pack my snowboarding bag, I fire up a few snow report apps on the iPhone. Right now my favorite is the North Face Snow Report (free). It’s possible that this is the only nonfleece North Face product I own (further research required). In addition to showing the required weather and snow report, the app also has trail maps and webcams of the resorts. So even if a resort exaggerates its report, you can see the half-inch of snow and decide for yourself if it’s really an “epic powder day.”
Hard drives and cases and ones for your iPod touch, Toddy Smart Cloths and Joby Gorilla pods, Dexim P-flip docks and solared powered ones, too, These are a few of our favorite things…
