Q.987

From the "about" page of a popular application:

The idea for ___ originated years ago, when Ehud Shabtai, a software engineer [...] from Tel Aviv University, was given a PDA with an external GPS device pre-installed with navigation software. Ehud's initial excitement quickly gave way to disappointment when he saw that the product didn't reflect the dynamic changes that characterize real conditions on the road, or have real-time info, like where speed traps were located.

Shabtai started the open source project "Freemap", then co-founded a company called "Linqmap", before the name was changed to the blank in the passage above.


What name, and why the recent fame?
