Every once in a while I come across something that just completely blows me away. A couple of weeks ago, I used the new Google Maps service to plot out some directions. I didn't get a real chance to play with it at the time, since I was in a bit of a hurry to get where I was going.
Today, I had an opportunity to play with it yet again. I must say, I'm amazed. Comparing it to MapQuest is a joke. Who knew that there was so much innovation to be done on an online map service, really? Well, Google goes at it again, schooling everyone.
The incredibly simple design, easy address entry, and interactivity of the map itself makes me appreciate how talented the people at Google really are.
Those poor bastards at MapQuest should be ashamed of themselves. I can't really blame them though, it's not like their owner creates the conditions for them to really be successful or competitive.
Nevertheless, I advise everyone to give it a whirl. You will not be disappointed.
