Add your Access Point to Skyhook

When the iPhone went to version 1.1.3 the new faux GPS was added and I love it and use it all the time; not all Access Points in my area are registered with Skyhook so the precision for my location is spotty depending on if I am located via cell tower or wifi. I had contacted Skyhook asking if there was a way to add unregistered Access Points; a few weeks later and here is the reply:

"Thanks for you interest in helping us build our database of Wireless Access Points. We are more than happy to have you submit your home or office AP so that we can better serve you.
We have setup a form to make this process simpler for you. You can view the form and submit your information by going to: "

So if you have been wanting to add some Access Points to Skyhook but didn't know how or tried emailing them the information (this didn't work for me; after three weeks my AP wasn't added; I think this is why they made the form) then try the link to the form they sent me.

I added a few of the APs visible from home and will post again when they are active.

Heart Shaped Pizza?

Heart Shaped Pizza?

I was in the middle of a conference call when a co-worker pulls me away to show me a pizza that was just delivered to me; he says "there is a slice missing"; I was thinking it had to be a joke and he already ate one but it was no joke, this pizza was delivered minus one slice.

Turns out my wife ordered me the pizza and asked if it could be made to look like a heart. If you look closely at the bottom there are two diagonal cuts making a point for the bottom of the heart.

I want my missing slice! :P
