I still like paper maps, partly because I’m a total road geek and partly because I just think it’s easier to use than my silly iPhone. Offchiz is a good idea that almost makes me reconsider my aversion to virtual maps. Created by Yahoo! Japan’s research arm, it’s an iPad app that lets you cut out relevant parts and draw notes on them with a stylus. You can even sync up your map with your friends’ so that if you circle a rendezvous spot on yours, it’ll show up on theirs, too. Pretty neat.
