    I am slow to hear about new technology. So last night, on the two and a half hour ride to Baltimore to see the Orioles play the Nationals, my wife fires up her recently downloaded GPS app called Waze. This app has all the traditional GPS map features, but wait! It also allows each user to input data like the location of accidents, obstructions and the location of police along your route. If you reach a reported location for one of those things and it is gone you can report that and Wazer will remove the notification. And since it is reading the real time GPS data from each user, it has the most accurate reports on traffic speed that I have ever seen. (and the most accurate arrival time since it knows I'm running ten over) Last night when I left Camden Yards it reported 9600 Wazer users within range of my car. That is a lot people donating data that helped me navigate some pretty congested roads last night.

    I think this is a pretty cool app. It made the night go much better, even though the Orioles lost.
