I checked out Google LatitudeÂ yesterday, pretty cool, kinda a mobile extension of google maps that allows you to see where your friends are and interact with them. When I logged in i already had a request from my friendÂ David Petherick, in the UK, he is contributing editor to the Next Web Blog. I was able to see him take a stroll thru his town today, and had I been in his ‘hood we could of met up for coffee or something.
One interesting item I noticed was that Google also has a status update field, hmmm wonder where they are going with that 🙂
- 1. Itâ€™s Google.
- 2. Itâ€™s Viral.
- 3. Everything is local.
- 4. Itâ€™s Desktop and Mobile.
- 5: I am the most important person in the world. You come second.
- 6. Everyone understands Maps.
- 7. Uncomplicated sharing.
- 8. Thatâ€™s not Latitude. Thatâ€™s just an upgradeâ€¦
- 9. They still donâ€™t get it. But they will.
- 10. And Whatâ€™s next?
I was looking for a restaurant to have dinner with my wife this evening. I couldn’t remember the name of the place I wanted to go to, but I knew the street it was on, the cross street, and the type of cuisine. I figured a quick search on Citysearch would find the place, after choosing the neighborhood and the type of restaurant, I started scrolling and scrolling and scrolling. OK, lets try again, I know the street so I should be able to put Bond St, New York, NY and it would return the results of what restaurants were located on and around that street. Error, doesn’t recognize the address, hmmm try again I know a building number that is close by, try that same error, fuck I’ve had enough… gone.
So I try, maps.google.com typed, restaurant bond st nyc
third result was my restaurant, including ratings, reviews and a map.
Done in less than 10 seconds, I spent 10 minutes on Citysearch for zero results (I guess Citysearch made more money in ad dollars than Google did on that search 🙂
This the first time that I can remember Google is using their home page to advertise something other than search and Google services. Is this going to be a trend?Â Earth HourÂ does seem like a worthy causeÂ
