Lovely Saturday. Sunny, productive, and fun.

Woke at 7:30 or so, did some work around the house, had breakfast with Becky and Tessa, chilled at their place a bit, came home and did a bunch more life chore/errand-type stuff, then went for coolest motorcycle ride ever up in Marin. Miles and miles of uninterrupted curves in the sun with views of the ocean, trees.... and the sun just starting to set as I was crossing the Golden Gate coming back. So awesome.

At one point I got lost, pulled over, and the iPhone geolocated me in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, just west of the bridge. In reality I was a half mile from Stinson Beach, 8-10 miles northwest of where the iPhone positioned me. Useless. :)

Fairfax-Bolinas Rd is similarly awesome. Fewer ocean views, but it's extremely rare that I've been on that road and encountered another vehicle.

I really like my iPhone, and it is nice that they've built location approximation into it, but I was blown away by the accuracy of the actual GPS data used in the Blackberry GMaps.

Not enough to ditch the iPhone, but enough to make me jealous.
