The G1 My Location Feature

Google has released the above video, talking about the new My Location feature in Android's Google Maps application. One cool feature about it is, of course, the Street View. Who couldn't love that?

For more information about the other cool stuff about the G1, check out the Official Google Mobile Blog.

hi john
if your interested in a follow up story to your earlier story on zzzphone in new york times please read this; you can call me at xxxxxxxxxx for more details. also we have the names of 3 MIT students who have been working summers for google android. they have been offered full time after post grad from MIT. the MIT android team were awarded $350,000 in the contest while our 4 submissions were thrown out. we have since applied for china and USA patents on our 4 software/hardware apps.
further we have been bad mouthed on the official google android blog , saying we are not recognized by google. while the android system is revolutionary and complements our revolutionary process of custom making each cell phone to each customers requirement,(including free uploading 3 android softwares of customers choice),it is anything except "open source"
as david killed goliath, we are beating google to worldwide markets (except we lose the first battle by 1 month in USA). and with a far superior, unlocked(really open sourced), 2 sim card phone. at less than half the true google phone price($179 plus $840 in extra t-mobile charges over 2 years) price.
to my knowledge only google and zzzphone are taking orders as of now.
our engineering team has 22 Chinese in shenzhen as opposed to the 1000s working in the "alliance" you can see the press release (attachment) and our phone at beta

I couldn't love it doesn't work like he shows, it's skipping a step, like the fact when you ask for directions, after finding your location and another place, the stupid phone doesn't know you mean from the damn location you JUST found; it asks from where!! Well guess what, I don't know or I wouldn't have asked. I appreciate the leap of faith in technology, but DEFINITELY not there and it's NOT for a dumbass like me, you need to be really IT literate.
