    Well isn't that just freaking amazing. For my next trick, I will predict the 
    winning lottery numbers, and you will all get a share.
    Ahem. For the record, I swear on a stack of Bowditches that I had no prior 
    knowledge of this Google smart phone product. I suppose it's an obvious 
    application. :-) But it does reiterate my belief that we have a great 
    opportunity to advance celestial navigation education by taking advantage of 
    this technology.
    PS: I do actually have a stack of Bowditches. They would be about four feet high stacked vertically.
