    Re: Almost a sextant
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2009 Dec 4, 16:22 -0800

    Meanwhile, an article entitled "Sail the oceans using iPhone apps" turned up just now online:
    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/12/04/DD0S1ATU55.DTL
    
    It references Philippe Kahn who just a couple of years ago I quoted on NavList 
    for saying that "a sextant is cooler than an iPhone" or words to that effect. 
    Now he's writing iPhone apps to enhance his sailing adventures! The article 
    also mentions using a nautical almanac app (which I could easily imagine 
    being exact in every way) with a 99 cent "sextant app". This last part is 
    rather silly, of course, but there are clearly useful nautical applications 
    that can go on these small devices.
