I thought a nice "gee the web works" story would round out the evening nicely.

I arrived in San Francisco today only to discover that I'd left my mobile phone charger at home.

To my inexplicable delight the sequence: verizonwireless.com, store locator, mapblast, address, address, address, "oh, that one's walking distance from my hotel" worked exactly like it's supposed to.

A fifteen minute walk and $40 bucks and I have a new charger. Total time about 45 minutes. Sweet. Well, except for the 40 bucks part maybe. It would have been cheaper to remember to bring it with me.
