Quick hit video: Earthcomber, free personal radar

Although I’m showing Earthcomber on the iPhone, it works on multiple devices: Palm, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, even a standard cell phone that’s web-capable. Earthcomber is touted as "personal radar for your phone" and that’s a pretty accurate description. Although there are other location-based applications to find places and services in your location, I like Earthcomber’s category and sub-category approach. It’s a free service and easy to use, so give it a look when you’re out and about.
