    This is a website and an app. You can see details about any ship or boat in the world that has a tracker.

    http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/

    I like to use it on the beach when I see a big boat out on the water or if I'm in a city and want to know where a ship is from, where it's going or what it's carrying. Or if it's a luxury yacht you can see who owns it.

    Tonight I was just looking around on it and I noticed a whole fleet of fuel tankers to the South of Long Island just sitting in a big cluster along with some un-named military ships. I'll bet they are waiting out there until the power comes on to deliver gas and the military is protecting them.

    If you're going on a cruise, or just like to browse, ship mate is a fun app. You can see the daily itineraries, view deck maps, see details about restaurants and bars on board and plan excursions. You can also locate any cruise ship on the map and even view live deck cams.

    https://www.dropbox.com/

    Dropbox. Free cloud sharing between devices. Upload songs or pictures and you can access them from any other device or send links to other people so they can stream or download to their own devices. Great way to send songs to a bunch of people without emailing them.

    I believe there are actually no shootings and everybody makes it up. Chicago has strict gun laws so this can't be happening.

    Playstation 3D display. Which is a fancy word for small, inexpensive but brilliant 3D HDTV. It's designed to go with the ps3 but even if you don't have one, it's a fully functional 1080p TV that has 3D and simulview capabilities. It was about $500 when it came out last year but I got one at Best Buy, with one pair of glasses and a game for $179. When you subtract those items, you're basically getting a TV for $100. I also hook my laptop up to it and the picture is much better than the built in screen.

    Trapster is an app that lets users report speed traps, detours and other road hazards. If you're driving along and you see something, you click the screen and report where and what it is. Then it will warn other drivers of the impending doom.
