re: Google Maps Updated: 10 Cool Features
In theory, the picture your destination feature looks pretty helpful; at least you can know what you are looking for when you type an address into a location, unlike with traditional GPS. Also, searching for a restaurant by type of cuisine can be helpful when you are in an unfamiliar city and you have food allergies or limitations and are unfamiliar with the options that might be nearby.

I tried the new version and across the board it is much slower than the old version. So slow that it is unusable.

I am also disappointed that they removed the shortcut to Navigation. I'm withholding judgment on whether navigation (via my Android phone) is improved as I work though things like traffic and alternate routes.

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
