Gary Price from Resourceshelf is usually on top of everything librarian, libraries and technology, but he is also very knowledgeable about mobile communications. In one of his latest posts he points out to a list with state driving laws.
"Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and the District of Columbia have enacted jurisdiction-wide cell phone laws prohibiting driving while talking on handheld cell phones. California and Washington have passed similar laws that will go into affect in July, 2008. Many other states ban cell phone use in specific situations."
To see how your state is doing with cell phones, read the entire post.
WeatherBug is another one of Gary's information pearls. The company founded in 1992 provides detailed local weather information, traffic and video cameras, Doppler radar, satellite, temperature and wind maps and more.
The accuracy of weather data from WeatherBug is much higher because of its "proprietary network of over 8,000 WeatherBug Tracking Stations and more than 1,000 cameras that are strategically placed at schools, public safety facilities and television stations throughout the U.S. These professional-grade weather stations generate live neighborhood level reports every second (unlike other weather providers; their data is up to an hour or more old".
WeatherBug is free, will send you alerts and is available for Windows Mobile, Lunix, BlackBerry and iPhone. With my new commute I plan to use the service frequently.
