    Even if you never intend on owning GPS software for your Mac, please sign.

    This is all about getting more software "for the rest of us".

    Online petitions are not worth the paper they're written on. -tazo

    -Guys

    Normally I'd agree with you. However, this one is clearly outlined as to its specific purpose, and it's for a good cause: More stuff for Macs.

    And less stuff for PC people to diss us with, so that we'd have to post their BS to a certain thread called "the worst question a pc user has aksed you" ;)

    You guys don't have to fill it out, but please: open mind this time.

    I think you both know me well enough to know I don't usually do this sort of thing.

    I bought a Garmin GPS a couple years ago and love it, but I do have to agree about the lack of Mac software.

    That and the lack of Lego software....

    I'm signing the thing...

    Is there anyway of knowing how many have already signed? I didn't see a view signitures button. Maybe I'm just blind.

    I won't accuse you of blindness - you can type.

    At the base of the story, just above the data-entry fields, there is the line:

    "We will forward a summary of petitioners (showing names and zip codes only, but without email addresses) to the manufacturers on a monthly basis. Currently, there are 2241 names on the petition list."

    And there is your answer - we're doing good. Not bad for a few days (read the top).

    Ok - I signed

    Any idea how much chance this has of actually doing any good? Most of my impressions with online petitions is that they're not worth they bytes they take on a hard drive - but here's hoping. I'm game for just about anything that betters and broadens our mac experience.
