Where's the nearest Wi-Fi location?
Cool feature from Yahoo! Maps: using the company's SmartView technology, it's now possible to populate a map with nearby Wi-Fi networks. Imagine, for example, that you're running to catch a train at Grand Central and want to know all the nearest wireless Internet nodes. So you generate a map of the streets around Grand Central. Then, you click on "Wi-Fi hotspots" at the bottom of the map (look for the Intel Centrino logo). Presto! The map is suddenly populated with a swarming mass of Intel Centrino logos.
