Saved locations on Google Maps8/04/2006 11:35:00 AMPosted by Thai Tran, Product ManagerOne of the most common requests we've received is for the ability to store a list of personal addresses on Google Maps -- and now you can. To get started, click on the "Saved Locations" link in the upper right corner of the site and sign in to your Google Account. If you're already signed in, this link will take you to your saved locations list -- Google Maps will automatically save every location you search for. You can also go to the Saved Locations list to disable auto-saving of locations or to add, modify, or delete previously-saved locations.
Discover Hong Kong with these Google Maps mashups and viewing tools:
Wikimapia lets you explore Hong Kong - Wikimapia features hundreds of user described buildings, parks, skyscrapers, airports and numerous other places in and around Hong Kong. It's a great way to match Google Maps satellite imagery with community-driven descriptions. I regularly use Wikimapia to research my travel destinations and for Hong Kong specifically there are tons of locations to explore!
Hong Kong sights and hotels - Pongu's Travel Community is a Google Maps mashup of notable Hong Kong attractions and locations and nearby hotels to these sights. As you hover over a pin the location name is given with options to zoom to that location or link off to a page to read more detail and photos. It's a nice little mashup to browse around on if you are traveling to this area. [Via ProgrammableWeb.com]

Und warum? Ich vermute, weil es Konkurrent Novell zuerst geschafft hat, Xen in sein Enterprise-Linux zu integrieren.
Gmap Pedometer is a site that uses Google Maps to let you record distances between two or more places. You can create routes for your running, see how many calories you're going to burn and save the route for further referencing. The author of the site explains: "As a runner training for a marathon for the first time, I found myself wishing I had an easy way to know the exact distance a certain course is, without having to drag a GPS or pedometer around on my runs." It's always a good idea to make some exercise at least once in a while, if not every day. And you can use the new iPod Nike shoes.

"TMOBILE has posted the long awaited ROM (ver 2.26) for the MDA USA. It contains a Radio Fix addressing the searching, signal acquirring issue as well as A2DP. Remember, you need a Fully Charged MDA before you get started, and make sure your PC will not go into Hibernate during the install. Also, on a personal experience note, I had a 3-5 minute pause when I got to 85%. Just as I began to worry, it picked back up. You never want to disturb the process or disconnect the cable. Complete instructions are included in the ROM Upgrade."

“Krugle delivers the precise help and knowledge that programmers need to solve their immediate problems.”
Meanwhile in other news (I always wanted to write that on a blog), Krugle is mentioned in a ZDnet column — New Google service for developers — that’s been picked up and re-run on quite a few other sites. The piece speculates about some opensource related offering that Google is evidently hinting around about. Your guess is as good as ours at this point. Maybe better. Apparently, more is to be revealed on Thursday at OSCON.
