By utilizing ThinkersGroup's patent-pending ThinkMotion(TM) technology, PilotOnline.com and HamptonRoads.com can now extend their content and advertising model quickly and easily to any Internet-enabled mobile device on any carrier network.
PilotOnline, a local news and information site, and HamptonRoads.com, a local city guide, are the most visited local sites in the Hampton Roads market. Visitors can shop, find a job, car, home or apartment, catch breaking news or search among 7000 sites in the local web guide.
