Spatially Aware
Clint Batman and Spatially Aware do some cool stuff with .NET mapping controls for a reasonable price. EnGraph spends way too much on maps from MapInfo. We want to set up a meeting sometime next month and figure out exactly what we need to do to convert our applications to use their maps. They are a local company from Lawrence too ......

Mentor Ranger
I played with a Ranger unit yesterday from Mentor Engineering. It is a Windows CE device with a large screen and 5 hot keys on the side. They have some with 802.11 and bluetooth, but this one didn't.

Why every company should blog
In the 12 months before I started blogging, our website received 11,000 hits. In the 12 months after I started blogging, we had 122,000 hits. Now we have Kyle blogging (rss) and we are giving away free applications and .NET controls. I think EnGraph has the best Paratransit software in the market, and hopefully people will keep going to our website and finding out about it ......

MSDN Images

Scoble links to Sahil Malik wanting VirtualPC images for beta downloads from MSDN. This is a great idea, and as much as Microsoft is pushing VPC, you would think they would go for it.
