For those of you who have jailbroken iPhones and iPod Touches, you’ll probably have heard of Appulo.us, a site that allows you to find thousands of IPA files for your iPhone/iPod Touch. Right now they’re migrating to better servers to make it easier to access, and hence a troll bridge has been implemented to restrict the number of users accessing it.

The current question:

This site made a bad knockoff of Appulous to try to get hits, but ended up getting DDoSed until they took it down. It’s ____________.com
The answer is:
Imodzone

get around with google maps

Full details here: http://www.techgoondu.com/2009/11/19/google-maps-packs-in-the-data-with-lta-and-quantum-inventions/

No wonder 2 days ago when I checked Google Maps on my iPod Touch, I was suddenly able to view traffic information on major roads and also get directions from Point A to Point B not only by car and by foot, but also by public transport. It’s all the result of a tie-up between Google Maps, LTA, and Quantum Inventions to bring this information to users.

Now that Google Maps is finally more useful for the average commuter like me, who has to take public transport, I’d bet I’ll be using it more often in the future to find the shortest way to my destination. For those of you who have an iPod Touch, I recommend that you try out your Maps application as well. With a Wifi connection, you’ll now be able to find the quickest route to your destination using public transportation. For those of you with an iPhone, you can even use your GPRS connection to access Google Maps, making for true portability and the ability to check directions anywhere, anytime.
