Quick tutorial on using iUI to create a native looking iPhone or iPod touch web page


I just picked up a new Apple iPod Touch and thought I'd create a version of my photoblog that is optimized for the iPhone and/or iPod Touch. This won't be an actual application available through the App Store, but instead a web page using Joe Hewitt's iUI CSS and JavaScript library.

Simple introductory tutorial for Mapstraction

It was time to start moving my old Google Maps pages over to version 2 of the API, and I thought I'd consider using another mapping solution (maybe Yahoo Maps or Microsoft). But then fate intervened and I happened to listen to a podcast from the Where 2.0 conference by Steve Coast. He talked about Open Street Map and more importantly to me, Mapstraction.

From their homepage

    Mapstraction is a library which provides a common API for Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft's javascript mapping APIs to enable switching from one to another as smoothly as possible.

This was just what I was looking for, so I thought I'd give it a try and detail the steps I took to get a simple map up and running.
