Japan has cooler cell phones than us. We just have to accept. My sister-in-law lives over there, and every time she comes to visit, her phone does more stuff than mine. I get a camera; she gets a camera with a flash. I get downloadable ringtones, she gets to play MP3s. Grrr.

Now, Japanese cell-phone app company Navitime (in Japanese) is offering a navigation service that gives you overhead maps (with real pictures) to guide you to destinations. And it call comes on your phone screen.

That is, of course, bad-ass.
