Link to Google Kills Garmin & TomTom (video)

After watching this video you will be excited about what Google Maps Navigation can do for you — for free if you have one of their new phones. Then you’ll feel sad for the kids at Garmin and TomTom because of the dump their valuations took. But don’t feel too bad, one of those companies …

(Facebook also offers text based …

Well. I finally did it. I was finally fortunate enough to buy an iPhone. I have been waiting for three things: my T-Mobile contract to expire the video camera functionality the iPhone to do all of this!
