Google Maps

What can I say; google has done it again! I found out today that they released a new feature to their site. Up until today, I always used maps.msn.com for all my directions and maps. It was good and got the job done, but that was about it. There was always a slew of advertisements that got in the way and it wasn't as intuitive as it could have been (as google has proven). I found today that maps.google.com is the new 'law dawg' in town. This thing has keyboard support, mouse interaction and user interface elegance.

Now maps are draggable and scrollable. It is like an interactive atlas that has everything you ever wanted. Getting directions from point A to point B is actually fun and addicting now. If you haven't tried it yet, I highly encourage you to take 10 minutes and read what you are missing. I will never use another map site program again. Amen!
