A Longer Walk on Google Maps

It was cool to find out that Apple released an update to iPhone 2.2 today. After going through the process, I couldn’t wait to try out the new features—specially the ones involv­ing Google Maps. They were: Street View, and pub­lic tran­sit & walk­ing directions.

Things were fine when all of a sud­den… a “things that make you go, hmmm” moment. Check out the walk­ing direc­tion that I was given 2-blocks away from the Trans­bay Ter­mi­nal.

Right?! I know. This deserves to be in Seth & Amy’s Really!?! skit dur­ing SNL’s Week­end Update.

Sweet­ness! $199 for the 8GB, and $299 for the 16GB model of the new, bad­dest iPhone ver­sion 2 with 3G and GPS built-in.

70 coun­tries this year. We’re going to start with 22 of the biggest, rolling out the iPhone 3G at the same time in all of these coun­tries. July 11.” ~Steve Jobs via Engadget
