It all started innocently enough when Christopher Gavula e-mailed the team about the Mapquest on iPhone article.

Whenever I’m out in the city for the day I see a lot of tourists trying to do the old “one arm” picture thing. It’s an awkward maneuver where you hold the camera out at arms length and try to get a group photo of two or more people. Trouble is that it never comes [...]
