    I can’t seem to get the OTA loader to work. Bad server name or something

    Hahaha so much for that one! On to the next app. I have tried Instafind, and it’s alright. What it does is you install a very small file on your phone, and when you click it, it get’s your location, and then opens your browser to the Instafind page, which is now preloaded with your exact location! (very cool idea). I just didn’t care for the fact that you had to use your browser, I prefer an all-in-one app.

    So far, Tellme is very nice, as is Superpages.

    Same error I got yesterday. I thoght they said they fixed the link. Here’s the error msg:
    The requested URL could not be retrieved While trying to retrieve the URL: http://bb.maufait.com/ The following error was encountered: Unable to determine IP address from host name for bb.maufait.com The dnsserver returned: Server Failure: The name server was unable to process this query. This means that:
    The cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL.
    Check if the address is correct.
