On One Map is possibly the coolest Google Maps mashup I’ve seen so far. Not that it’s the most innovative — more that it’s the most insanely useful. Looking for houses is a pain in the arse if you don’t know exactly where you want to live — you end up browsing the house descriptions first and having to branch out to find out where the place actually IS. Whereas we all know that the number one rule in househunting is “Location, location location!”.

Now I just have to resist the urge to find another house — we’ve only been in our current flat a year and 7 days!

I had a hell of a day today. I needed to be in central London for an event lasting a couple of hours, sandwiched between two 4hr+ journeys on what was one of the hottest days on record.

The saving grace? Wifi on the train. For free, today, as part of an introductory offer, but even when you’re paying for it, you have to admit the prices aren’t too horrendous (especially the 24hr rate if you’re doing LONG journeys).

What I’d like someone to explain to me now, please, is how come I can have wifi on a train moving at 80mph, but coffee shops think it’s too much to offer it?
