Google Maps For iOS Is Amazing

The new Google Maps app is simply amazing, by far the best mobile map app that I’ve used even if you take accuracy off the table. I used it this morning and its vocal driving directions are actually better than Apple’s app. They give more detail in road names and things like that and honestly I think the voice is better and more natural too. If you have an iPhone and haven’t tried it out, you really need to. The Verge has a good write-up about what’s new.

Posionous People

If you’re involved in the WordPress community (or any open-source community for that matter) and have never sat down and watched (or at least listened to) this presentation by two of the founders of the Subversion project, I strongly recommend you do. It is an hour very, very well spent.

Thanks to Ryan McCue for sharing the video with me.
