Track Santa on your iPhone

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has for the past 50 years taken calls from children who are eager to find where Santa is, and it can be seen via Google Maps on the iPhone.

I just saw this amusing holiday tradition mentioned over at AppleInsider. Apparently the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has for the past 50 years taken calls from children who are eager to find where Santa is. It was started by directory Harry Shoup, and made its way to Google Maps starting in 2007.

The map shows where Santa has been, and when he is due to arrive at his next location. It is available through the Maps application on iPhone and iPod Touch devices by searching for "Santa".

What does this have to do with Macs and troubleshooting? Not much, but it's fun!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
