  1. Mashups… ain’t those the things that show maps coordinates of where Hollywood starlets have barfed in public or something? Anyone found a Mashup that had any substance or merit to it?
    I tried loading that page … took eons. If thats an example of their programming skills forget it! By the time the page loaded I was too tired to view it.
    Mashup of GPS coordinates of garbage trucks so you will know when they are outside your door? I already know that from their waking me up with the noise!
