    This seaside city, as well known among locals for its lack of parking as its sandy beaches, is unveiling a new online service that alerts people every time a parking space opens up in its central shopping district.

    The information will be posted online and on the electronic signs in front of the parking lots and garages. Plans are also in the works to make the system compatible with BlackBerry devices. -- (Source cnn.com)

    Now that is a cool idea. Usually lots will post a sign when the lot is full, but now they're taking full advantage of the net???!!! And with possible compatability with your BB...this is great!!!

    Sounds like it would be very expensive to maintain and most likely require a subscription fee to cover overhead.
