TomTom arrives on the iPhone for $100

AT&T Navigator's subscription based GPS navigation solution (see our review) was the first full GPS voice navigation system for the Apple iPhone, but there is now some serious competition in the GPS navigation space that may even start knocking out dedicated PND.

There is quite a price range across these navigation solutions and we'll have to see if the high cost of TomTom is worth the premium over CoPilot Live 8.

Firefly satellite will study thunderstorms

The Firefly mission is the second project under the new U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) CubeSat program. The goal of this program is to provide a low cost access to space research. Firefly will be launched in 2010 or 2011 and will try to 'solve the mystery of the most powerful natural particle accelerator in Earth's atmosphere: TGFs, or terrestrial gamma-ray flashes,' according to a NSF news release. As I wrote recently, satellites can cost several hundreds of millions of dollars. But the Firefly represents a new kind of satellite. It is small -- the size of a football (4" by 4" by 12") and the cost to develop, launch, and operate it for three years during its science mission is expected to be less than $1 million.
