On 11, Nov 2007 | One Comment | In Apple, iPod, TTC | By Ryan Feeley

ttcguide.jpgWanna shorten TTC trip time?

This iPod-friendly version of the original TTC Subway Rider Efficiency Guide indicates where the escalators are located for a faster exit. Instead of printing the guide and carrying it around, you can use your photo-capable iPod, or other device, to save vast seconds of your life.

Simply unzip, mount your iPod, and copy the guide into the Photos folder of your photo view iPod.

Thanks to gang at ttcrider for making these maps to begin with! Feel free to check out my other iPod guides.

List what you want and you shall receive… on Facebook

iPod Power AdapterLast year my wife was given a friend’s iPod mini and ever since she’s been in the market for the accompanying power adapter (which was not included). I’ve been reluctant to buy one new at the Apple Store because they’re $39 so I yesterday I decided to post it in Marketplace on Facebook under “List what you want”. Within 15 minutes I had one response from a friend offering it for free, and by evening there were two more offers. Incredible. I am going to get more stuff on there, including things for sale because it clearly works.

Now if only we Facebookers could be more specific about what we’re looking to sell or looking to buy. UPC code? No. Amazon URL? Maybe. We could then be auto-matched with our friends, our friends’ friends and even people within our network. Sure it would be terrible for the economy, but great for the environment. Buying crap you don’t need isn’t such a sin when it’s second hand is it?
