Online mapping is great. Even if i’m using GPS software i like to check out the route before hand so i’m not blindly driving around
This changed when Google Maps gave you the ability to drag your route around a customise it (i thought i’d blogged about that but i can’t find it!) and i use that 90% of the time
So where am i going with this?
ativan to purchase Magazine”>The latest edition of Technet Magazine (UK edition) dropped through my door yesterday and i noticed a very small piece that mentioned Multimap had been aquired by Microsoft
So i went to the site and found no mention of it other than a press release from December last year annoucing the takeover
Old news now but it suprised me i’d hadn’t heard it sooner and i don’t quite understand what Microsoft gain from this as it’s pretty similar to Live Local.
The opinion on other sites is they are buying the user base……
Well i thought it was interesting anyway 🙂
