I really enjoyed watching a friend play with Google Maps/Local for mobile phones. But I also use Verizon, so I can’t use it right now. If I’m lost in a new town and I’ve just come up from a subway, I’ll be forced to fall back on my Timex watch with built-in digital compass. And maybe looking for moss on one side of a tree.
Check out this song that Matt Waddell wrote about the new service. On the bright side, maybe I’m not the wackiest Matt at Google anymore.
