Topographic Maps now on the Blackberry

As a person who works in Washington, District of Columbia I frequently see "hillies" (my term for staffers, pages, reporters, and others who work on Capitol Hill) with their BlackBerries. It is an odd thing to discuss hillies communication device. They love it for the instant communication but also hate it with a passion. The freedom of being out the office is gone.

Now; however, BlackBerries may be found on outdoors trails throughout the United States. Northport Systems, Inc., has announced that free Fugawi Touratel topographic mapping software for the U.S. and Canada is now available for Blackberries. The maps can also be viewed online.

So now we enter a brave new world where going out on the trail still does not protect you from the boss.
