    My guess is yes as you can manually select your city. It is currently free so nothing is lost for trying it. You could also pull it up using wifi and look at the traffic before leaving out.


    FYI here is the latest on the iPad only apps
    Total Available iPad Apps: 5117
    I have found 673 iPad apps so far for my own use and spent only about a hundred dollars.;) Many are free if you watch the new releases the day they appear. Others drop the price to generate interest so now is a good time to collect apps you may find useful.

    You do not have to load all of them onto an iPad at once although my 637 apps would easily fit on a 64GB iPad. You have to use the finder to launch them as it is too many for the desktop.

    Thanks, 4fhun! I should have said it before, but you're the best source I've seen for useful (and free) apps! We should all send you a dollar:)

    Another Tuesday Note: Apple releases iTunes 9.1.1, fixing VoiceOver, Genius Mixes

    Apple releases iTunes 9.1.1, fixing VoiceOver, Genius Mixes issues

    Note from AppleInsider


    Apple on Tuesday released a minor update for iTunes, its media player suite for Mac and Windows, with version 9.1.1 bringing fixes for a number of issues, including stability and usability problems with VoiceOver and Genius Mixes.

    Update iTunes now before Friday 3G. Updating then could be a nightmare with so many jumping onto iTunes to set up the 3G.
