Google For the Defense

Googlemaps1 The list of new uses for Google maps keeps growing - hacking the searchable program into interactive directions for finding cheap gas, free Wi-Fi, homes for sale, etc.

How about beating traffic tickets?

A story making the rounds today comes from a New York City driver, using a laptop in court to  discredit a police officer's testimony. Saved $200 plus points. Story here in Gear Live.

Google Maps doesn't integrate with Google Moon It uses the same software! Amazingly I thought of something that google didn't :D

Impressive. Does it show gas stations along the way?

I haven't heard the whole story on this because gearlive has been /.'d but I wonder if Google Maps could have been wrong in stating it was a one way street. I know that they're not 100% with one way streets as I found out this past weekend while heading up to East Reservoir Park.
