I use this App daily. Not so much for getting where I need to go because overall I'm really good with direction (except when driving in San Francisco), but for seeing what's out there in the way of traffic and if there is a better route to take. They make it fun to use as well, giving points for driving on roads not yet mapped or over special "road goodies".
Each holiday season so far, there has been a different contest with prizes (yea, I've not won anything yet, but still hopeful). Yesterday Waze introduced a "Valentine's Treasure Hunt", featuring "road goodies" (worth 10-15 additional points) as well as virtual treasure chests that, when driven over, have the potential to reward users with a real-world prizes — "movie night for two" gift cards or heart-shaped boxes of chocolate. From February 8 to February 14, 2010, users in the US and Canada, can look for treasure chests along their daily drives for their chance to win.
Additionally, you can now "ping" other users, maybe someone who is ahead of you in traffic to see if they know anything further about what's going on.
So if you see me on the road, please "Waze"!

Frank did a great job of helping us when we were having problems with our home WiFi network. He got it working, and solved the problem we were having with a room that was a dead zone. He was also helpful with follow-up questions by email.

Frank is professional, patient and has extensive experience in many areas of IT so he could solve lots of nagging smaller issues that I had saved up to ask an expert.

Frank believes anything is possible and usually is right. He's careful however not to over-promise or under-deliver.
He gets the job done within established time-constraints and with very limited resources. He's smart about scoping out projects and a very bright guy.
